The Judsons Family Newsgroup
William JUDSON was christened on 30 Jul 1592 in Halifax, Yorkshire, England. He signed a will on 20 Nov 1661, died on 23 Jul 1662 in New Haven, New Haven Co., CT and was buried on 29 Jul 1662 in New Haven, New Haven Co., CT. William came to America in 1634 with his 3 sons, from Kirby Moorside near Helmsly, North Riding of Yorkshire, England. The Judson family was one of the most prominent families in Connecticut and enjoyed the distinction of representing the town at the General Assembly of the State of Connecticut. William married to Grace Ann PORTER (1st wife) in Resided, Stratford, England (books say 1634; but that would have been after children were born). Grace Ann was born about 1597 in England. Children of William and Grace Ann:
- Grace JUDSON was born about 1617 in Yorkshire, England.
- Joseph JUDSON, Lt
- Jeremiah JUDSON, Sgt
- Joshua JUDSON
William also married Elizabeth WILMOT (2nd wife) on 8 Feb 1660 in England. Elizabeth WILMOT1 was born about 1597 in England and died in 1685. When she married William, she was twice widowed. Her first husband was a Heaton and her second husband was Benjamin Wilmot. There were no known children of William and Elizabeth.

We've all been in the situation where our research is going along just great and then we hit that brick wall. If you have a name that you've been trying to find and seem to have come to a dead end, put it on the Judson Query Board.
Another resource that might contain your Judson is Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven, Connecticut, where March,1996 I recorded from the card files of the office, every Judson reposing there. Be sure to scan the entire list, as the names only look alphabetical.
