Dear Julie,

I'm not sure this refers to your Jonathan RAINSFORD, but it might if you have more information than I do (and you seem to). Have you seen Vol. II of Henry R. Stiles's "The History of Ancient Windsor" which was originally published in 1892?

Vol. II has genealogies of the families who lived in Windsor, CT. Beginning on page 633, Stiles discusses the REED family and mentions David REED's wife, Hannah RAYNESFORD, daughter of Edward and Abigail (BAULCH) RAYNESFORD. No siblings of Hannah are mentioned, but Edward and Abigail were supposed to have come from near London, England to Rehoboth, MA before moving to CT. Does that sound familiar to you?

It is possible that David and Hannah REED's son David also married a RAYNESFORD. Since these were my ancestors, I am doubly interested in learning more about the RANSFORD family.

I might have a bit more about the early RANSFORD family, but it is a long and undocumented story. However, if you're interested, please e-mail me. My e-mail address is

Mary Lou Pick
