Compiled from the notes of Howard N. Saxton, Albany, New York,
and James Saxton, Blissfield, Michigan

   1. GEORGE1 SEXTON was undoubtedly the emigrant ancestor of this family, although there is no record of his coming to America. The earliest mention of him, June 10, 1663, is found in a book of deeds at Springfield, Massachusetts, where he is called a resident of Windsor, Connecticut. (a) At that time he bought of Thomas Cooper two parcels of meadow and upland at Waranoke [called Westfield since 1669]. He is supposed to have been born about 1618. The apparent ages of his sons would place his birth at not later than 1635. One theory as to the origin of George Sexton seems worthy of further investigation. The Sextons of Limerick, Ireland, were Protestants and undoubtedly of English ancestry. During the famous siege of Limerick by Ireton in 1651, some of the inhabitants fled to America, among them, it is said, Edmund Fanning and George Sexton. In the Irish probate records is the will of a "James Sexten, Lemerick, Burgess," lated December 14, 1669; sons, George, Symen, Patrick, Joseph, Stephen, and a daughter Joane, to whom are left certain legacies in case the estate be recovered.

   If George Sexton was an Irish refugee, it is easy to understand why the records of Windsor have so little to say concerning his presence there. Living in a community where lids neighbors were partisans of Cromwell and hence potential enemies, he would be content to live safe from further persecution. He would not be likely to become an adherent of the church organization that had been responsible for loss of property and kinsmen, a tyranny from which he had barely escaped with his life. Hence he could not become a freeman, or a citizen, and a real member of the community. No record has been discovered showing that he had his children baptized. It is possible too that on coming to America he moved from place to place and that his stay at Windsor was brief.

   Because George Sexton lived at Windsor for a time, it has been said that he was a brother of "Richard Saxston." This seems unlikely, for the two families did not use the same

(a) Deeds, Vol. I, p. 33, Hall of Records, Springfield, Mass.


baptismal names. It is more likely that he was a nephew or even a more distant relative. It is possible that the similarity of surnames was merely a coincidence.

  Between 1663 and 1666 George Sexton removed to Westfield, Massachusetts, (b) where he was one of the first three permanent settlers. His life at Westfield was not without its troubles. On September 24, 1678, George Sexton and his wife were called before the county court for "abusive words and actions to Samuel Root, constable." He became straightened in circumstances and at last was compelled to mortgage his lands and crops to pay his debts. On January 25, 1687/8, he sold his housing and lands at Westfield for £160 to his sons, Joseph and Benjamin, (c) and before October 30, 1690, he had died leaving an estate valued at £49, 10 shillings. (d)

  It seems probable that George Sexton was never reconciled to the church in New England, but Katherine, his wife, was admitted to the church at Westfield, July 13, 1682. She died September 19, 1689. The names of six sons are known, but the order of their birth is uncertain. There may have been other children not recorded.

  There has been considerable discussion as to the proper spelling of this surname. In the early records of George Sexton and his family, the name was almost always spelled as given here. After the family had scattered, many branches, either by accident or design, adopted the spelling "Saxton."

Children of George and Katherine (--------) Sexton:

     vi. John, b. May 26, 1673; probably d. young.

   2. JAMES2 SEXTON (GEORGE1) was born about 1660, or perhaps earlier. He may have been older than his brother George. Early in life he removed with his parents to Westfield, Massachusetts, where he lived the remainder of his life. He married, first, April 29, 1680, Hannah Fowler, daughter
