George Barley/Barlow of Milford Connecticut

           From the research of Edson Barlow

1.

George Barley was born, say, around 1660. The place of his birth and his parentage are as yet completely unknown. The temptation to suspect that he may have been a son of George Barlow of Sandwich, Massachusetts, is hard to resist but there is no evidence that even suggests such a connection.

The first two generations of this family usually used the name Barley; later generations generally used Barlow. The reason for this is not known, nor is it known if they were originally Barleys or Barlows [40], although the name Barley was sometimes used early in Lancashire, England, as an alternative form of Barlow.

George Barley died around November 1706. The administration of his estate was granted to his widow Mary and to Samuel Hubbell on January 27, 1706/7, at Stratfield, Connecticut. Samuel French was appointed guardian to John, Elizabeth and Nehemiah, and Thomas Hawley was appointed guardian to George and Mary. On February 3, 1713/4, Samuel Hubbell being deceased, administration was granted to the widow Mary Barley and son John Barley [41].

George Barley married Mary Stilson, a daughter of Vincent Stilson, probably around 1685 and probably at her hometown of Milford, Connecticut. Vincent Stilson's will dated September 17, 1687, gave "to my daughter Barly wife of George Barly the sume of five shillings, shee haveing had her portion already" [42].  According to Donald L. Jacobus, she was probably born between 1665 and 1670, and her name was Mary ("Barly" was probably a pet name given by her father) [31]. She was covenanted and baptized on April 9, 1695, at the Stratford Congregational Church [43].

George and Mary Barley had six children:

i.
John Barley was born about 1688 in Fairfield County, Connecticut [40].

He married Mary Sykes on January 10, 1716, at Stratford, Connecticut [44], and they had eight children.
He died in 1755 at Stratford [41].

ii.

Elizabeth Barlow

She married Abraham Blakeman on February 27, 1717/8, at Stratford [44].
He was born on October 25, 1694, and was the only son of John and Mary (Kimberly) Blakeman

iii.
Nehemiah Barley was born about 1690 at Stratfield, Connecticut.
iv.

George Barley was baptized on January 5, 1700/1, in the Church of Christ at Fairfield, Connecticut [45].

He married Mehitable Staples, a daughter of John Staples of Fairfield, on April 1, 1722, at Stratford [44] and they had four children. He died in 1769 at Fairfield [41].

vi.

Mary Barley was baptized on November 24, 1706, at Stratfield [40].

She married Benjamin Lattin on November 11, 1723, at Stratford [44].
He was born on April 13, 1702, and was a son of Thomas and Mercy (Wakelyn) Lattin.

vi.
Ebenezer Barley was baptized on November 24, 1706, at Stratfield, and died young [40].
