Balthazar DeWolf
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1620
Death: 1695
New London County
Connecticut, USA

This memorial is dedicated to my ancestor Balthazar DeWolf.
He was married to Alice Peck in 1645 in Guilford, Connecticut. Alice was born in 1625 in England, she was the daughter of William and Elizabeth Peck. She died in 1689 in Lyme, New London County, Connecticut.

The first record of Balthazar is at Wethersfield, Connecticut in 1656-64. In 1668 he and his three sons, Edward, Simon and Stephen are recorded as members of the training band at Lyme. There is also a record that one Nicholas Jennings was indicted for witchcraft in "causing the death of the wife of Regnold Marvin and a child of Balthazar de Wolf."

He owned property in Lyme and Saybrook very early in the history of the colony. The first mention of his name is found in the Harford court records in 1656. He was in Weathersfield, CT (probably on a temporary visit) and was arrested for smoking on the street. The court fined him...and as tradition has it...he paid his fine, lit his pipe and went out! He was also a member of the local militia.

1673 Relieved from military
1673 served as Grand Juror
1677 Elected Lyme CT Town Committeeman
