THE TIFFANYS

Are from Humphrey and Elizabeth Tiffany, who were at Rehoboth in 1663-4. The account of the tragic death of Humphrey Tiffany is gien in the diary of the celebrated jurist, Samuel Sewall:
"Wednesday, P.M. July 15. Very dark and great Thunder and Lightning. One Humphrey Tiffany and Frances Low, Daughter of Antony Low, are slain with the Lightning and Thunder, about a mile or half a mile beyond Billingses Farm, the Horse also slain, that they rode on, and another Horse in Company slain, and his rider who held the garment on to steady it at the time of the Stroke, a coat or cloak, stounded but not killed. Were coming to Boston. Antony Low being in Town the sad Bill was put up with (regard) of that Solemn judgment of God; Fast day Forenoon. July 15, 1685. 2 Persons 2 Horses."
On Oct. 27, 1685, Elizabeth, widow of Humphrey Tiffany was appointed administratrix on his estate by the General Court of Plymouth. His son, Ebenezer, b. 1663, owned a large tract of land eastward from Mouscochuck Creek, and his house stood near the site of the R.R. station at Nyatt. The name Ebenezer has been retained in the family to the present time when there are two of the name, father and son.
