Genealassie (#47551147) provided the following info:
Samuel Boreman was baptized on 20 Aug 1615, the son of Christopher and Julian (Carter) Boreman of Claydon, near Banbury, Oxfordshire, England and the event was recorded in the Parish register there.

As the large Boreman family cenotaph memorial at Wethersfield states:

"Mr. Samuel Boreman First Ancestor of the Boardman Family." All of Samuel and Mary (Betts) Boreman's sons who died prior to 1713 (Joseph, John, Jonathan and Nathaniel) and who left a probate record were known by the surname of Boreman. Then, prior to 1720 for unexplained reasons the three surviving sons of the family (1st born son Isaac, 2nd born son Samuel and 5th born son Daniel) used the surname Boardman, with their respective gravestones inscribed either as Bordman or Boardman, but their individual estates were probated under the surname of Boardman.

Samuel Boardman, Jr. (q.v. Boreman), s. of Samuel Boreman and Mary Betts and b. of record Oct. 26,1648 at Wethersfield, Conn., d. testate at Wethersfield Dec. 23, 1720,, Æ 73 (g.s.).

Although her gravestone is inscribed with the surname of Bordman, her will begins "I, Sarah Boardman, of Wethersfield, widow and relict of Mr. Samuel Boardman," and named "my sons, David and Joseph Boardman, and my daughter, Mary Warner," as executors of her will. Samuel and Sarah had seven children of record at Wethersfield, but only three lived to maturity to marry:
