Thomas Canfield
Birth: Oct. 14, 1654
Milford
New Haven County
Connecticut, USA
Death: 1689
Milford
New Haven County
Connecticut, USA

My 7th great grandfather Thomas Canfield was a farmer but little is known of him as he died at age 35. The inventory of his estate is an interesting exhibit of the early colonial period. The inventory is dated 22 August 1689 on file at New Haven Probate Office vol. 2 pg 25. Thomas' son Abiram was baptised at Milford 5 Jan 1689/90 and a note says born after father's death. No tombstone remains for Thomas in the old section of Milford cemetery. His widow remarried 28 April 1695 Samuel Camp, the father of her son Thomas' wife, Mary Camp.
