Birth: 1604, England
Death: 1648
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA

Born about 1604 (aged 30 in 1634). Came to Massachusetts Bay in 1634 on the "Elizabeth." (On 30 April 1634, "Robert Day," aged 30, and "Mary his wife," aged 28, were enrolled at Ipswich for passage to New England on the Elizabeth.) First settled in Cambridge; moved to Hartford by 1639. Died between 20 May 1648 (date of will) and 14 October 1648 (date of inventory).
MARRIAGES: (1) By 1634 Mary _____, born about 1606 (aged 28 in 1634. She must have died soon after arrival in New England, or perhaps even on the voyage in 1634.
(2) By about 1636 Editha Stebbins, sister of EDWARD STEBBINS {1633, Cambridge}. She married (2) by an unknown date John Maynard and (3) by 1663 (and probably earlier) Eleazar Holyoke. She died at Springfield 25 October 1688
Robert Day migrated with and lived near NATHANIEL ELY {1634, Cambridge}, and so some relationship is possible.
He had no known children by his first marriage and four by the second.
Various authors have misallocated the early records for this immigrant and ROBERT DAY {1635, Ipswich}. Savage got it right; in 1953 Jacobus carefully set forth the arguments for the correct interpretation.
