  • Notes 
    • - Thomas Polley was born in Woburn Mass. in 1696, the birth recorded in "A Genealogical dictionary of the first settlers of New England" by James Savage, Boston, 1861. At some point Thomas relocated to New London, CT, where he amd wife Ann gave birth to their first child, Daniel, in 1719. Daniel was baptized May 31, 1719 at Preston, CT.
      Some time before 1727, Thomas and family relocated to Hebron, CT, where third child Nathan Polley was born July 15, 1727. The CT town records also show the birth of Anne, Mary and Liddiah at Hebron but not William in 1742.

      Note: There are several genealogies which claim that William was not the son of Thomas, but of Thomas' brother Daniel Polley. However, we know from his marriage record that William was born in Hebron, while his uncle Daniel remained at New London where he married Jerusha Houghton and had all of his children; and that he died at New London in 1764.
