From HOBART-1912: "Stephen-2 GATES (Stephen-1) married Sarah Woodward, grand-daughter of his

step-father, and led a very migratory life. In Boston, where he was living February 17, 1667 [citing

Middlesex Deeds 3:262], he was an assistant to Edward Drinker, a potter and Baptist preacher. In 1673

he was of Cambridge, when Drinker deeded to him three hundred acres in the wilderness between

lancaster and Concord on both sides of Elizabeth Brook [citing Middlesex Deeds 5:180]. He was of

Stow in 1684 when he took an Indian title to the Elizabeth brook property [citing Middlesex Deeds 9:57],

and there he and his son Stephen were taxed in 1688. "Of Stow, sick in body, he made his will

September 5, 1701, giving his entire farm to his six sons, after the decease of his wife Sarah. Out of the

moveable estate _30 was to go to his daughter Sarah and _20 to daughter Rebecca who had received

part of her portion since her marriage. Executors: wife Sarah and eldest son Stephen. He [Stephen-2]

died July 9, 1707, and the will was proved September 19, 1707 [citing Middlesex Probate No. 8966]."

Stephen-2 GATES and his wife Sarah had eight children: Stephen-3, Simon, Thomas, Isaac, Nathaniel,

Sarah, Rebecca and Daniel. Of these, Stephen and Thomas are known to have been at Preston, CT by

1708. I know of no evidence that their father, Stephen-2, ever lived at Preston; certainly, their uncle,

Thomas-2, had moved to Preston by October 1703.

 

 

Stephen and Sarah had the following children:

 

+          4 M i.  Stephen GATES  was born on 17 Jul 1665.
