Mary Hooker 1624 – draft

3 Mary Hooker (Thomas), daughter of Rev. Thomas
Hooker of Hartford, Conn., married in 1644, Rev. Roger New
ton, who was a student of Theology with her father, son of
Samuel Newton. He was the first minister at Farmington,
Conn., where he was installed on the day that the church was
formed, Oct., 1652, he having preached there some time before.
He remained there five years when he was dismissed and pre
pared to return to England. It has always been supposed that
he did go to England and after remaining some time he re
turned to New England and settled in Milford, Conn. Later
researches however, have led the searchers to believe that after
he had prepared to go the ship left without him, and that he

remained in New England until he was called to Milford. He
was installed at Milford, Conn., Aug. 22, 1660, and remained
over the church until his death.
