Ancestor Chart for Norbert R. Bankert
áááááThomas Upson was born in England. He married, pos. as a 2'nd wife, Elizabeth Fuller on 23 January 1646/47 in Hartford, Hartford Co., Conn..1 He died on 19 July 1655 in Farmington, Hartford Co., Conn..2
ááááá
Immigration: before 1639, When he is found in Hartford.
Founder/Proprietor: Hartford, by 1639. Name inscribed on the Founders Monument; Farmington, 1640.
Religion/Church: First Church of Hartford.

áááááThe origin of Thomas Upson is unknown, though he was probably of England. Savage believes he might be a brother of Stephen Upson who arrived on the "Increase" in 1635 at the age of 23 and that he might have been at Cambridge prior to Hartford but offers no proof.
áááááOur first record of Thomas is in Hartford in January of 1639 when he is shown to have received land by courtesy of the town, and in February when he is shown to own several parcels along the Connecticut River. His home lot was located on the west side of what is now Albany Ave. In August of the same year, Thomas is fined 20 Shillings for "unseasonable and immoderate drinking at the Pinnace." He did not stay long in Hartford and removed to Farmington in 1640. The name Thomas Upson, though not an original settler of Hartford, is inscribed on the Hartford's Founders Monument by virtue of his land holdings prior to 1640.
áááááThe "Colonial Records of Connecticut" under date of 21 August 1646, contains the following reference: "Elizabeth Fuller, for comitting fornication, is to be seuerely corrected". Thomas Upson married Elizabeth five months later so it might be assumed that it was he who was involved in the above transgression, and it could be that the marriage was an attempt to predate the arrival of a child. The Upson Genealogy claims Elizabeth is the second wife of Thomas and had children Hannah, Elizabeth, and Stephen, and that Mary and Thomas were born to a first wife in England. Savage says "possibly" a second wife. I believe that it is more likely that Elizabeth was the mother of all the children. As far as I know, the parentage of Elizabeth Fuller, or her possible relationship with the Mayflower Fuller's, is unknown.
áááááThomas Upson died in Farmington in 1655 and his widow married Edmund Scott. Edmund Scott had nine children and "The History of Waterbury" suggests that the two youngest, Robert and Joseph, were sons of his second wife, Elizabeth, the widow of Thomas Upson. Scott died in 1691 and his will lists his heirs with no mention of Elizabeth who, it might be assumed, died prior to 1691.
áááááThomas left a small estate in the amount of £108 which was further reduced by debts due from the estate. In 1671, sixteen years after his death, presumably as the children reached maturity, the estate was distributed to the children. To Thomas "eldest son" £7; Stephen £7; Mary "eldest daughter" £4; and to Hannah £4. The rest of the estate went to Edmund Scott, in right of his wife, the widow of Thomas Upson. In 1674, Stephen Upson, a minor, chose Samuel Wyllys as his guardian. As his father had now been dead for eighteen years, Stephen must have been an infant, or born shortly after, the death of his father.
áááááOur ancestor in this line is Mary so it is significant that in 1681 "John Welton, in right of his wife, acquits his Father Scott on account of Father Upson's estate". 3

In "The Upson Family in America" is found the following:
ááááá"Thomas Upson, leaving his wife and daughter, Mary, in England, sailed for America with his son, Thomas, and landed at Saybrook, Connecticut. From there he made his way to Hartford and thence to Farmington, where he was an original proprietor and actual settler in 1640. . . Mary Upson, the oldest daughter, was married about 1667 to John Welton of Wales while crossing the Atlantic, and thus became the ancestress of the Welton family in America."

áááááThe Upson Genealogy offers no sources or data to support the above statements other than "family tradition" and, without any documentation, I find myself questioning the accuracy. While Thomas, the son, did eventually settle in Saybrook, I wonder what basis might exist to suggest that Thomas left a wife and daughter in England and landed at Saybrook. We do know that Mary married John Welton probably in 1666, but why do we believe that she married him in England or on board ship on the passage to America? If we take this at it's face value, we have to believe that Mary waited nearly thirty years after her father's emigration to follow him to New England even though her mother had been dead at least twenty years, given Thomas' marriage to Elizabeth Fuller in 1646/47.
áááááThere may be evidence for the above statements that I am unaware of, however, without any evidence I might offer another suggestion:
áááááThe lack of birth and marriage records for this family complicates assumptions but I might suggest that all the children of Thomas Upson were by Elizabeth Fuller who married Thomas in January of 1646/47, or were at least all born in New England. The guardianship records for Stephen suggest that he was born about 1655 so it would be entirely possible that the other four children were born between the marriage in 1646/47 and 1654. The fact that both Mary and Hannah's husbands acquit "Father Scott on account of Father Upson's estate" could suggest that the widow Elizabeth was indeed the mother of both these children, although we must be careful in literal interpretations of these relationships.
áááááGiven what few dates we do have, there seems to be nothing to indicate that all the children were not of this marriage. Mary was the "eldest daughter" and married about 1667 or 1668, at which time she could be twenty years old. She would have to be thirty to thirty-five years old at her marriage if she was born in England. The estate was distributed in 1671, presumably when the children, with the exception of Stephen, had reached maturity. If Mary had reached maturity shortly after her father's death in 1655, there would be no reason to wait sixteen years to distribute her portion. Mary died in 1716 and her husband died ten years later. If she was born circa 1647 she would be about 69 when she died, if she was born c. 1637 she would be about 79. Presuming her husband was five years older than his wife, he might be about 84 at death if he was born c. 1642, or 94 if he was born c. 1632.
áááááI realize that I am making some assumptions in this hypotheses, however without any evidence I am inclined to discount the statements in the Upson Genealogy. "The Ancestry of Mary (Welton) Van Wagnen", by Frank L. Van Wangen (1948), contains some very good information on the Upson and Welton families and the author puts forth some ideas that roughly parallel my thinking.
