      (2) Schenck, Elizabeth Hubbell, The History of Fairfield, Fairfield County, Connecticut, Vol. I, New York, NY: 1889, pp. 17-18:

      Among those who joined [Roger] Ludlow in [Uncoway (Fairfield, CT)] in September of this year [1639], were William Frost, his son Daniel Frost, and his son-in-law John Gray, all of whom settled upon the Frost square. William Frost took up his home-lot of two and one-half acres on the south-west side of the church and school land. About this time, or soon after, John Foster took up three acres in the rear of this lot. Next adjoining William Frost's lot on the west, Francis Purdie took up three and three-quarter acres, running through the square from the south-east to the north-west. Daniel Frost took up three and three-quarter acres west of this, which also extended through the whole width of the square. John Nichols, a brother of Isaac and Caleb Nichols, of Stratford, took up two and a half acres west of Daniel Frost. John Gray, who, before the month of May, 1639, had married Elizabeth a daughter of William Frost and widow of John Watson, sold his house and home-lot in Lynn, Massachusetts, about the 1st of August following, and before the 28th of September (perhaps accompanied his father-in-law to Uncoway), took up two and a half acres on the south-east corner of Frost square. Henry Whelpley soon after took up three acres next adjoining John Gray's lot, extending to the southwest corner of the square. At a later date, John Green took up three acres on the north-west side of this square, between Henry Whelpley's lot and Daniel Frost's. Richard Westcot took up two and a half acres on the south-east side of the square between John Gray and John Nichols.

      There appears to be every reason to believe that John and Thomas Barlow settled at Uncoway about this time, or very soon after, which seems to be fully substantiated by a record of 1653, that the land of Thomas Morehouse, "some times," or for some time previous, had been owned by John Barlow; which must have been purchased by him at an early date, else some reference would have been made to its first owner. Daniel Frost had married Elizabeth, the daughter of John Barlow; it is therefore a natural conclusion that these families, so closely allied by intermarriage, should have journeyed to Uncoway together. Thomas Barlow, who was probably nearly related to John Barlow, took up five acres on the north-west corner of the Frost square, in the rear of the school and church land, next adjoining William Frost's and John Foster's land on the east. Abraham Frost also accompanied his father William Frost to Uncoway. The latter in his will mentions having purchased for this son the house and home lot of John Strickland of Wethersfield, who tarried but a short time at Fairfield, as soon after he is found at Long Island.

      (3) Abraham FROST was the younger of two sons mentioned in the will of his father, William FROST, dated January 6, 1644/1645.

      (4) Like all of his siblings except Mary (FROST) RYLEY, Abraham FROST emigrated from England to America before 29 May 1651. See Frost, Josephine C., The Frost Genealogy, New York, NY: F. H. Hitchcock, 1912, p. 389. In fact, according to Note (2) above, Abraham FROST was in America no later than 1639, when he accompanied his father, William FROST, to Uncoway (Fairfield, CT).

      (5) An Abraham FROST married Anne PECK on 29 May 1651 at St. Peter's, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England.

      If the Abraham FROST who married Anne PECK in England in 1651 was the same person as the Abraham FROST who was in America no later than 1639, he would have to have gone from America to England for the marriage, and thereafter returned from England to America no later than 1654. (See Note (6) below.) The compiler has seen no evidence of any such voyage from America to England, or any such return voyage from England to America.

      pp. 52-54 (1653[/4]):

      Thomas Baxster being seized at Fairfeild and brought to Newhave the 10th of March, was called before the court and told that hee stands charged wth sundrie offensiue carriages, for wch ye court conceives he can haue no comission to beare him out, and first his cariag aboute seizeing M. Mayoes vessell, wch all the comissionrs haue witnessed against and written to Road Island aboute it, for wch cariag Road Island, as they are informed, hath declared themselues offended wth him, calling in his comission and haue made it voyde and null, and would haue proceeded against him but that he made an escape from them, beside many miscariages of a high nature at Fairfeild, but they belonge to another jurisdiction, whether the court referred them; but for this jurisdiction he was told his miscariages at Stamford haue bine verey offensive, as that he will beate vp a drume there for volunters and flourish his cullers to gather company, and if any oppose him he threatens them, and pticularly the constable; thus he tramples upon the authority sett vp there; also his miscariage lately at Millford in carrying away M. Fowlers cannow, and when one of Millford told him it was the magistrats cannow, he slighted such words, and when they laid hands vpon it to stay it, he wth a halfe pike strucke the man betwixt the head and shoulders, and one of his men drew his cutlash and struck at his hand but missed it, and the rest stood wth their peeces cocked & vowed they would shoote; beside his cariage in entertaining and keepeing Mr. Fowlers servant, and when he sent for him he would not deliuer him but said he had buisnes for him and when he had done wth him he would send him home.

      Hee was asked what he said to these things, and whether he had comission to act thus; he said he thought hee had, but his comission being pvsed there was no such thing in it, but he is lymitted to ye Duch and enemies of the Comonwealth of England, and to behaue himselfe civilly to all the plantations in the English colonies.

      Hee said if he spake so at Stamford it is out of his knowledg, and for Mr. Fowlers man he did send him home afterward; for the miscariage at Millford, they were so lately and testifyed by so many witnesses, as Ensigne Bryan, James Buggers his man, and others prsent, and might he confirmed by others at Millford, that he could not deny them. The court hauing pceeded thus farr, for the prsent dismissed him to be sent to Connecticote, to answer for what he hath done in their jurisdiction.

      Two of Thom Baxsters men, namely William Ellitt and Abraham Frost, were also brought prisoners, the tryall of whom this court refferrs to Connecticote as most propr to them, onely the marshall of Connecticote desired that the testimony of one of Fairfeild here prsent may be taken and sent to Connecticote, because it may be of some vse to them there, wch the court granted, & is as followeth,

      John Odell testifyeth vpon oath, that as Baxsters men went vp and downe the streets of Fairefeild wth their swords drawne in their hands, he heard William Ellitt sweare wth a great oath, (but knowes not the words,) that wth them hands of his he would be avenged vpon the blood of some of them wch had taken his captaine, and he supposeth there were aboute a dozen of them wch so runn wth their swords drawne.

      pp. 204-206 (1657)

      Edward Jessup, plant' [v.] Richard Crabb, defendt'.

      Edward Jessup declared that Richard Crabb hath taken vp a mare of his wch had bine marked wth his marke two or three yeare, and hath added another marke, and hath giuen away pt of the said mare to Abraham Frost to recouer the other part.

      Abraham Frost, atturney for Richard Crab, owned the takeing vp the mare, and being in question was advised to giue her some other marke, wch they did by cutting her tayle, and at first he denyed that he had one pt to recouer the other, but that it was freely giuen him; he was told it is true he was advised by the constables at Stamford to giue her some by-marke, as cutting a few haires or the like, but he had cut the tayle quite off, wch they neuer intended, and that is the worss because it is the marke that Rich: Crab giues his other horses.

      Both pties were told that the court can doe nothing in this case but vpon proofe, and therefore if they haue any evidenc they may produce it. That the mare was taken vp by Richard Crab or his agent and thus marked is confessed, and seuerall testimonies were presented by Edwa: Jessup in writing, wch makes it probable that the mare might be his, and that Abraham Frost was to haue a pt of ye mare and increase, to recouer ye other pt for Richard Crab.

      Abraham Frost also prsented one testimoney wch saith this mare was like goodman Crabs, and another that saith it was like ye mare that goodman Crab discribed to him to be his.

      But more fully to cleere the buisnes Edward Jessup brought Joseph Mead of Stamford, (who was his agent and imployed by him and did marke this mare for him,) as his witnes, who did now in court affirme vpon oath, that when Edward Jessup and his mother widdow Whitmore went from Stamford to live elswhere, they left two mares at Stamford and desired him to take care of them, and he did vse what care he could in it, and these two mares and their increase he obserued from time to time, yeare after yeare, haueing many occasions to goe into the woods, and this pticuler mare now in diiferrenc she did keepe wth the other colt that was a companion wth her seuerall yeares, they two being together e obserued them when they were sucking colts and also before they were a yeare old, and seuerall times in the yeare, and obserued how the cullour went on, and can safely say that this mare, wthout any question or scruple in his conscienc, is Edward Jessups.

      Further to strengthen this testimoney it was affirmed now in court by some of Stamford, and some testimonies in writing were showed to that purpose, that Joseph Mead is a man well experienced in the knowledg of most mens horses aboute Stamford, and is much imployed by others to looke vp horses for them, and is judged to be one of the ablest in towne for that purpose.

      Abraham Frost said that when Joseph Mead marked this mare for Edward Jessup, he was wished by the constables at Stamford not to doe it, and the constables now said that they wished him to forbeare at present.

      Both pties hauing spoken what they would in the case, the court declared, that they haue considered the case as it is presented, and according to their best light this mare in question seems to be Edward Jessups, but because it is but one witnes that speakes punctially to it, and that there is possibillitie of mistake & the mare was marked by Joseph Mead against advice, therefore, if wthin a yeares time Richard Crab or any other bring in better evidenc, they shall be heard and the case againe considered, notwthstanding what is now done, and that Richard Crab paye Edwa: Jessup for charges forty shillings, but if Edwa: Jessup shall wthin the yeare before mentioned remove the mare out of this jurisdiction, he shall put in standing securitie to the full valew of the said mare, to be answerable for the same if better proofe be made and to paye back the forty shillings againe wch he received for charges also.

      p. 216 (1657):

      Abraham Frost, who at present liues aboute Stamford or Greenwich, presented a petition to the court desiring some releife from them because he is very poore, haueing lost all by the Indians aboute a yeare and a halfe agoe, his wife and chilldren taken captives but after brought to this jurisdiction, where they haue lived sinc in a poore and meane way. The court considered the case and ordered that ten bushell of Indian corne, or the valew thereof in other corne, be pd to him from Stamford, wch to be alowed them in their rates.

      The testimony of Abraham Frost, this 10th of Octobr 1659, vpo oath.

      This is it, that I & Wm Hubberd fetcht vp the mare yt was in difference betwixt Richard Crabb & Edward Jessupp, the winter before it was tryed at Newhaven, & then the said mare had no coult with her & yt time was the first time that I had seene her or yt any body else had seene her yt yeare as I knew off.

      The first three generations in the above tree are linked based on the following information: Abraham Frost had a son named Isaac, and Thomas Frost had a father named Isaac; in the absence of other known candidates in that place at that time, it is assumed that these Isaac's were one and the same. This Abraham might be the Abraham who was son of William Frost, an early settler of Fairfield, CT. If so, then Abraham was born in 1622 in Nottingham, England, and this line is thought by some to trace back to William Frost who died in 1498 in Sudbury, Suffolk, England. ANALYSIS: This Frost family is also thought by some to include William Frost of Oyster Bay, Long Island, NY, but note that DNA results for this participant do not match results for the descendant of William of Oyster Bay. . . . These results are, however, a high-resolution match to some people with the surname Bedell. Are there other Frost Y-DNA test candidates from these early New York and Connecticut families who might be interested in shedding further light on these theories and helping to confirm lineages by being tested?
