136.  JEDEDIAH HYDE, son of Rev. Jedediah and Jerusha (Perkins) Hyde,

Jedediah and Elizabeth Hyde Graves

Jedediah and Elizabeth Hyde Graves

was born 24 August 1738 at Norwich, New London County, Connecticut and died 29 May 1822 at Hyde Park, Lamoille County, Vermont[20].  He married, first, 28 January 1761, his second cousin, MARY WATERMAN, daughter of Asa and Lucy (Hyde) Waterman[21].  She was born 19 April 1739 at Norwich, Connecticut and died 2 September 1780 while he was absent in the army.  After her death, he married the widow ELIZABETH BROWN Parker, widow of David Parker and daughter of Humphrey and Mary (Fanning) Brown of Stonington, New London County, Connecticut.  She died 28 November 1825 at Hyde Park, Vermont.  The tradition in the family, in relation to this marriage, is that soon after the marriage of David Parker and Elizabeth Brown, David enlisted in the company of Capt. Hyde and that Elizabeth applied to the captain to release her husband.  He declined to do so; but told her, jocosely that if her husband should be killed, and his own wife die before his return from the war, he would himself become her husband.  That her husband was killed in battle; and that first wife of Capt. Hyde having died, he kept his promise, by marrying the widow of Parker.

Jedediah and his first wife Mary settled at Norwich.  He was an officer is the army of the Revolution.  At the battle of Bunker Hill he was first Lieut. of Capt. Coit’s company and was slightly wounded there.  He afterwards commanded a company in the regular army.  After his marriage to Elizabeth Brown Parker, they moved in about 1782 to Pawlet, Vermont, then to Poultney, Vermont and finally, they moved to the new township of Hyde Park, Vermont, named for him, and of which he was one of the original proprietors.  His daughter Elizabeth Mills, although at that time only four years old, remembered the move to Hyde Park.  Capt. Hyde came on in winter, with a number of small children, on an ox sled.  They had their own road to make for many miles of the journey.  On arriving at Hyde Park, they stopped first at John McDaniel’s house.  Capt. Hyde immediately proceeded to provide a temporary shelter for his family, and the next season had a comfortable log-house erected.  The old Hyde farm was next west of Hyde Park village[22].  He is listed there in the 1790 U.S. Census.

2207. HESTER HYDE[39], daughter of William Hyde, was born in England and died 13 November 1703 at Norwich, Connecticut.  She married on 31 March 1652, at Norwich, JOHN POST, eldest son of Stephen Post.  He was born in 1627 in England and died 27 November 1710, at Norwich, Connecticut.


2176. 2200. 4414. WILLIAM HYDE died 6 January 1681 at Norwich, Connecticut.  He married, second, the widow JOHANNA ABELL[40].  The name of William Hyde first appears at Hartford, Connecticut in 1636.  His name is on the monument in the old cemetery at that place as one of the original settlers, and he had lands assigned to him there.  He probably came to America in 1633 with the Rev. Thomas Hooker, the first minister of Hartford.  He probably stayed with him a short time at Newton, Massachusetts and then moved with him to Hartford in 1636.  When he moved to Saybrook is unknown, but he owned land in Hartford as late as 1639.  He was a man of considerable importance among the settlers of Norwich and was frequently selected as one of the selectmen.  His home lot was devised to his grandson William Hyde, the second.

    I am descended from the Hyde line via the following path:

    From William through Samuel, William, Jedediah, Jedediah, Reuben C., Udney Hay Hyde, Russell, and finally Olive Blanche who married Micajah Johnson.

    I appreciate your extensive documentation of this lineage and its branches. A very distinguished line.

    I have been looking at Hyde family material as the daughter of the last owner of Hyde Manor recently died and has requested being buried there. Just found your work and it is so interesting. My uncle worked at the manor years ago.

      The expert on Hyde Hotel history is Steve Sgorbati. He was the town clerk of Sudbury and maybe still is, I haven’t been in contact with him for some time. You may to want to talk to him if you are very interested in the old hotel. I’m sure it was quite a grand place in its day. Some of my husband’s relatives worked at the hotel too.

  8. Helen Delman Says:

    Thank you for all the info on the family. Alida Hyde married my Great grandfather. We spent a week every summer at Hyde Manor. It was a grand place but failing into disrepair. My Father always brought his tool box and supplies to fix the dripping plumbing. The third floor was no longer in use the last few summers we were there because it was unsafe. I loved the swan fountain, the rock garden, the entertainment hall. My brother taught me to bowl sort of ( I set up the pins) and to play pool. I looked forward to meals in the dining room ( everyone dressed for dinner) and one summer I was allowed to go horseback riding with my brother. I was too young to ride alone so Sally or Susan would hold me in front of her. I remember her arms covered in freckles. No tvs, no phones in the rooms, no elevator, no air conditioning etc. Just lots of fresh air.

  9. V.E.G. Says:

    Wow! Tyler Johnson, the former drug addict, died very unexpectedly in Maryland was related to the Balthazar DeWolf ancestry!
