Birth: 1590, England
Death: Jul. 20, 1673
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA

Spouse Mary Walter Gaylord 1595 Eng- Jun 20, 1657 Windsor, Hartford, CT

Born by about 1590 based on estimated date of marriage (and perhaps a few years older if his age at death as given by Grant is not an exaggeration). Planter who came from Crewkerne, Somersetshire to Massachusetts Bay in 1630 in the "Mary & John." First settled in Dorchester; moved to Windsor in 1638. Died in Windsor 20 July 1673. (Grant records among the 1673 deaths, without day or month, "Deacon Gaylar.88.old".)
Married by about 1615 _____ _____; she died at Windsor 20 June 1657.
The claim has been made that William Gaylord was made deacon of the Dorchester church before the Mary & John sailed, and it seems to be certain that he was deacon as soon as that ship arrived in New England. In the earliest town records all the acts of the town were signed by four men: John Warham, John Maverick, William Rockwell and William Gaylord. Warham and Maverick were the ministers of the church, and Rockwell and Gaylord would seem to be the deacons. Also on 26 August 1633 William Gaylord and William Rockwell were appointed administrators to the estate of John Russell who had died in Dorchester, and this is a diaconal function. Neither William Gaylord nor his wife was admitted to the second church at Dorchester, organized late in 1636, clearly indicating that he retained his membership in the Warham church, where he continued as deacon after he moved to Connecticut.
