From my book "Line of Descent of George Roger Gilbert"

THE LYMAN FAMILY

March 4, 1996

Then because of the appearance of the name Lyman in the Perkins family and because I recently discovered that Josiah Dewey's wife was Hepzibah Lyman, I looked at the GENEALOGY OF THE LYMAN FAMILY R 929.2 L978. I could find no connection to the Perkins family. The book has an extensive section about the English ancestry of the Lyman family. My first American ancestor, Richard Lyman begins on page 33 so I copied;

"RICHARD LYMAN, the patriarch of all Lymans recorded in this volume and all of English descent in America, born in High Ongar, Essex co., England, about 25 miles east by south of London, was baptised October 30, 1580. The date of his birth is not given. He married, date unknown, Sarah Osborne, daughter of Roger Osborne, of Halstead in Kent. She went to America with her husband Richard and all their children, in 1631, and died in Hartford, Connecticut, about the year 1640, soon after the death of her husband.

Children; 2nd generation

1. William - buried at High Ongar, August 28, 1615.
2. Phillis - bp. Sept. 12, 1611, came to New England with her father; m. William Hills, of Hartford, became deaf.
3. Richard - bp. July 18, 1613, died young.
4. William - bp. Sept. 8 d. Nov. 1616.
5. Richard - bp. Feb. 24, 1617
6. Sarah - bp. Feb. 8, 1620
7. Anne - bp. March 2, 1621; died young.
8. John - bp. 1623
9. Robert - b. Sept. 1629; married in Northhampton, Mass. Nov. 15, 1662, Hepzibah Bascom.

RICHARD 2 married Hepzibah, daughter of Thomas Ford of Windsor. She was sister of the wife of Elder John Strong of Dorchester, Windsor and Northhampton. Her second husband was John Marsh of Hadley, Mass. Richard resided some time in Windsor, owned land there, occupied some of the land of his father Ford " in East Windsor near the Hartford line." He appears to have been a man of decided character and influence. Immediately on his removal to Northhampton, he was appointed one of the first selectmen chosen in that place, and through his short life was engaged in public business. He died June 3rd, 1662.
