Edward Frisbye1,2

TMG ID:25234, (c 1621 - 10 May 1690)
Relationship:
8th great-grandfather of Elsie Dora Lewis
According to the Frisbee-Frisbie-Frisby Family Genealogy, by Olin E. Frisbee, John and Francis Linsley, and Edward Frisbee, were among the first settlers in Branford, CT, in 1644, then called New Haven Colony. But no one named Culpepper was on that list. Edward Frisbee, however, was said to have been born in the Virginia Colony about 1620 and later moved to CT.

According to Bullard and Allied Families, by Edgar J. Bullard (Private Publisher, Detroit 1930), starting at page 79: The surname Frisbie was well established in several counties in England by the middle of the thirteenth century. It is of local origin, showing that those who first adopted it were residents of Frisby, a chapelry in County Leicester, and from there the name has spread into all parts of England. The Connecticut Frisbie's are descendants of Edward and John Frisbie, for whom long established tradition claims a Welsh origin. Both were signers of the Plantation and Church Covenant of the town of Branford, Connecticut, in January, 1668, and both became progenitors of families which have been powerful and influential in the history of Connecticut.

Edward Frisbee, with his wife, Hannah, entered his name for land in Branford in 1645. So far as records show, he had but one known wife, who was named Hannah, whom he married in 1644. There are circumstantial reasons for believing that her maiden name was Culpepper, though absolute proof is lacking. The recent Frisbie Genealogy erred in assigning so many wives to him. As a matter of fact, Frances England, one of the wives assigned to him, was wife of Edward Hitchcock. (Recorded in Branford, Connecticut.) He must have been an extensive landowner and acquired much additional property, since the conditions in his will, dated October 25, 1689, disposes of many valuable tracts in different parts of the town.

He was a Congregationalist of the early Puritan type, though less narrow and apparently more tolerant than many of his contemporaries. His estate was inventoried May 26, 1690, and his signature on the will showed the spelling of the name was "Frisbye." His large family of eleven children displayed marked traits of character and ability, and their descendants in succeeding generations include many distinguished members.

Edward Frisbee was the son of Richard Frisbee of London who moved to Virginia in 1619. Edward, called "the Immigrant" was driven from Virginia because he was a Puritan; moved to Branford, CT; entered his name for a lot in the town in 1645. Died there May 10, 1690. His first wife was Abagail----; his second Hanna Rose with whom he had eleven children. Hanna Rose was the daughter of one Robert Rose of Ipswitch, England who settled in Watertown Mass in 1634 and moved to Wetherfield, CT in 1637.

The records on this were compiled within the last 50 years by my father's mother or sister, I'm not sure which, and handed on to me. There is no ambiguity about Edward and his two wives however, nor about the lengthy list of their children and their descendants, though of course there's always the possibility of an error. Interestingly, Edward's home, which he left to his two daughters Silence and Abagail in his 1689 will, still stands in Branford, CT and is a state landmark.

WILL OF EDWARD FRISBYE
The last Will and Testament of Edward Frisbye, of Branford
I, being weak in body, but perfect in understanding and memory, do make this my last will for the disposing of my worldly goods.
I give to my son John so much as to make what he hath had already fifty pounds; he having already received about five and thirty pounds.

I give to my son Jonathan one acre and a half of meadow at Oyster Neck, as also my lots of upland on Dutch House Neck and Oyster Neck or near thereunto.
I give to my daughter-in-law Rebekah Tyler, relict of my son Samuel, five shillings.

I also desire the Rev. Mr. Samuel Russell and my son John Frisbye to be guardians to my son Ebenezer, and to act for him in the dividing of the lands if there be need before he come to the age of one and twenty years.
Only what is the remainder of my lot in the Beaver Swamps (when my son Benoni hath had his two acres which shall be on the north side of my lot) shall be equally divided between my three youngest sons, Josiah, Calib, and Ebenezer.
It is also my will that my movable estate shall be equally divided (when my son John hath had the remainder of his fifty pounds) between six of my children, Abigail, Josiah, Calib, Hannah, Silence, and Ebenezer, only my two sons Josiah and Calib to have my teams, that is my oxen and horse with the furniture of the rooms, they to have it upon an appraisal. And if it be more than their proportion, then they to repay what is due from them to the other four children above mentioned; and if wanting, to be made up out of the movables, only I give to my grandson Edward Frisbye a heifer two years old.
This is my will also that my corn and provisions laid in for the present year with six fatting swine, and a fat beast be for my five children to live upon; viz. Abagail, Josiah, Calib, Silence, and Ebenezer; and to pay my debts and if there want to pay my debts, then what is wanting shall be paid out of the movables.
And I do make my son John Frisbye executor of this my will, with my hand and seal, this five and twentieth day of October, A. D. One Thousand Six Hundred and Eighty-nine.

Biography

Item(s)
Edward Frisbie was born about 1621, probably in Virginia Colony, the son of Richard and Margaret Emerson Frisbie of the parish Clerkenwell, London. Most likely one of the settlers in 1644 of the village of Branford (originally Totoket) in what was the New Haven Colony. His name however does not appear in the Town records until December 1646.
He married about 1649 (the date and wife's name remain unknown).He had a family of eight sons and three daughters. He owned a "home lott" with dwelling on the main street of the town. In the course of a few years he acquired at least two other houses and much farmland and pasture. about 1685 he built a fine new home, the handsome "Hearthstone", which still stands on U.S. Route 1, the old Boston Post Road, two miles east of the village. Edward died in 1690 and left the house for his two unmarried daughters. It remained in the family till around 1840. Then for 100 years it passed from hand to hand becoming badly unkept and dilapidated. In 1945 Dr. and Mrs. John P. Riesman purchased the house and lovingly restored it, saving it from almost certain oblivion.

Data source: DAR Records anscestor number 235.3
Although there is no documentation, there is a strong possibility that Edward Frisbie was the son of Richard and Margaret (Emerson) Frisbie. The earliest record of Edward Frisbie is on a list of property owners in December 1646 in the town records of Totokett (later Branford) in New Haven Colony (later part of Connecticut).

Edward was probably married by mid-1649 as his first child was born in July 1650. The name of his wife is unknown. Edward was probably a farmer, but he probably performed a variety of work. In 1661 he was sued for inadequately thatching a roof. His estate papers after he died indicate that he may have also been involved in making nails. A land grant to Edward in 1671 referred to him as "Goodman Frisbie." This may have shown that he had been able to improve his economic status. "Goodman" was a courtesy title accorded to a yeoman, and a yeoman was a step above a laborer or husbandman, but a step below a gentleman. The corresponding title to a yeoman's wife was "Goodwife" or "Goody." During his lifetime he acquired considerable real estate.

In 1639 he was appointed pounder and in was appointed fence viewer in 1681. Pounder and fence viewer were two of several civic jobs at which every townsman was expected to take his turn..7
Edward Frisbye was a participatant with Richard Frisbie and Margaret Emerson. There is a fair amount of evidence that the parents of Edward FRISBYE were Richard FRISBIE and Margaret EMERSON. Richard and his wife immigrated to the Virginia Colony in 1619 or 1620 and returned to London in 1625. Genealogists believe they probably returned to America during the "Great Puritan Migration" of 1635 aboard the ship Abigail which left London for Boston in that year carrying many settlers bound for Connecticut. There is no further mention of Richard and Margaret in any New England records but there is good reason to believe that they died either during the voyage or soon after arriving in America. It took ten weeks for the Abigail to reach America and many people aboard died of smallpox (in the previous year, the Elizabeth Dorcas lost 60 passengers to disease). Many immigrants arrived sick, without adequate protection against the cold, and died during their first New England winter. Some lived in tents and died of scurvy. Between 1628 and 1640, 20,000 immigrants arrived in America, of which 5,000 arrived in 1635 alone. No systematic records were taken of those that lived or died..5
On 10 Jan 1667, at Branford, New Haven County, ConnecticutB. He and his father were signers of the "New Plantation and Church Covenant of Banford".3
In 1685, at Branford, New Haven County, ConnecticutB. Built a new house on the Old Bost Post Road on the eastern outskirts of Branford. Known as "Hearthstone," it was still standing in 1984..7

Miscellaneous Information:

Will25 Oct 1689Branford, New Haven County, ConnecticutB, When Edward died, his estate was valued at 317 pounds, a comfortable sum for his day. This amount does not include the gifts of land and money which he made to his children during his lifetime. He never learned how to write, for he signed his will by a mark, but he left his family well provided for. The will was signed in October 1689 and Edward died May 10, 1690. Edward was thrifty and provident, for in the fall before he died he had already laid in his year's supply of grain and had set aside "six fatting swine and a fat Beast" for his family to live on during the coming winter.7,2

Biography

Item(s)
Richard was oringinaly from Wales. He immigrated to the U.S., departing England in Feb 1620 and arriving May 1620. He was in Virgina in 1625...The only certain information is the date of his marriage, the baptisms and burial of a number of childern in Clerkenwell, and that he sailed for Jamestown, Virginia on a ship Jonathan, Feb 1620. The Virginia Company of London had established the Jamestown Colony in 1608 and had sold shares. The date of the ship's Departure is not Known. There were seven ships in convoy Transporting 700 People... A captain Thompson was Ship master. The ship tonnage was 320-350 tons She was esitmated to have a 90 foot Keel, 30 foot depth. The ship landed in Jamestown, Virginia on May 27, 1620..1
According to Bullard and Allied Families, by Edgar J. Bullard (Private Publisher, Detroit 1930), starting at page 79: The surname Frisbie was well established in several counties in England by the middle of the thirteenth century. It is of local origin, showing that those who first adopted it were residents of Frisby, a chapelry in County Leicester, and from there the name has spread into all parts of England. The Connecticut Frisbie's are descendants of Edward and John Frisbie, for whom long established tradition claims a Welsh origin. Both were signers of the Plantation and Church Covenant of the town of Branford, Connecticut, in January, 1668, and both became progenitors of families which have been powerful and influential in the history of Connecticut..3
Richard FRISBIE was born in 1591 in St. James, Clerkenwell, London, England. Nora Frisbie strongly speculates that Richard FRISBIE and Margaret EMERSON are probably parents of Edward FRISBYE. She says he was 34 in 1625 in reference 449. He emigrated on 27 May 1620 to Jamestown, Virginia Colony, VA.(1817) (1818) According to Nora Frisbie (189 and 449 intro), Richard came aboard the ship Jonathan with 200 other passengers, which sailed from London in February 1620. They arrived in VA, having been at sea for 14 weeks and having lost 25 passengers and 4 crew. Nora specualtes that Richard came as an indentured sevant to the Virginia Comapny of London. he may have had a half-share contract, by which he may have agreed to labor for them for seven years and keep half of what he produced during that time. He resided on land owned by the Virginia Company of London (tenant) in 1624 in Elizabeth City, Virginia Colony, VA. (1819) He moved between Feb 1625 and Aug 1625 to England. (1820) He returned to England at the time of a plague, which killed his daughter Ann on 7 Aug 1625. He moved in 1634 to New Haven Colony. (1821) Richard's second emigration to America occurred in 1634 with wife, Margaret, son, Edward and daughter, Jane. Peter, age 5, was left behind in London where he later became Constable. Richard probably left with a large number of fellow residents of Clerkenwell bound for Whethersfield. There is, however, no further Connecticut record of Richard, Margaret, or Jane. Nora speculates that they died soon after arriving in America, leaving 14 year old Edward the sole survivor and founder of the Frisbie family in America. He moved in 1635 to Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony. (1822) He died after 1635 in Connecticut Colony. (1823)
He married to Margaret EMERSON on 30 Nov 1618 in London, England. (72) (1824)
There is a fair amount of evidence that the parents of Edward FRISBYE were Richard FRISBIE and Margaret EMERSON. Richard and his wife immigrated to the Virginia Colony in 1619 or 1620 and returned to London in 1625. Genealogists believe they probably returned to America during the "Great Puritan Migration" of 1635 aboard the ship Abigail which left London for Boston in that year carrying many settlers bound for Connecticut. There is no further mention of Richard and Margaret in any New England records but there is good reason to believe that they died either during the voyage or soon after arriving in America. It took ten weeks for the Abigail to reach America and many people aboard died of smallpox (in the previous year, the Elizabeth Dorcas lost 60 passengers to disease). Many immigrants arrived sick, without adequate protection against the cold, and died during their first New England winter. Some lived in tents and died of scurvy. Between 1628 and 1640, 20,000 immigrants arrived in America, of which 5000 arrived in 1635 alone. No systematic records were taken of those that lived or died (189, 251). Children were: Mary FRISBIE, Goodman Edward FRISBYE, Ann FRISBIE, Richard FRISBIE, Zachary FRISBIE, Henry FRISBIE, Peter FRISBIE, George FRISBIE, Jane FRISBIE..4
