He came over from England on the ship Mary & John, which sailed from Plymouth, England on 1630-03-20, just a few days ahead of the Winthrop Fleet of 1630. They landed ten weeks later at Dorchester, Massachusetts. About 1635 he moved to Windsor, Connecticut, which is at the confluence of the Farmington and Connecticut Rivers. Windsor is about six miles north of where the city of Hartford stands today.

He brought to the colonies with him three sons, James, John and Samuel. A daughter Mary, another son James, and his first wife, are assumed to have died before Bygod left England and little else is known about them.

He married again, Mary, and again, her surname is unknown. Together they had seven children; Thomas, Mercy (Marcy), Sarah, Rebecca (Deborah), Abigail, Joseph and Benjamin. Bygod was fined 20 shillings in 1645 for "bequeathing his wife to a young man." The young man, a George Tuckye, was fined 40 shillings, but he took off and didn't pay.

Bygod survived his second wife as well, and married for a third and final time. Once again, her name is unknown. No known children came of this marriage.


Much uncertainty about his mother. Could be Margaret Harker.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bygod Eggleston was baptized on 20 February 1586, or possibly 1587 in All Saints Church at Settrington, East Riding, (now North Yorkshire) England. He died on 1 September 1674 at Windsor, Connecticut. His will was dated 13 November 1673. One of these persistent rumors is the claim that Bygod's maternal grandmother was a Bigod, this stemming from Bygod's unusual Christian name. While the family of Bigod had some importance in the 12th and 13th centuries and cadet branches of the Bigods held the manor of Settrington until 2 June 1537 when Sir Francies Bigod was put to death for treason, no link has been found of any blood relationship between Bygod Eggleston and the Bigod line. Sometime before 1612, Bygod Eggleston arrived at Norwich, Norfolk, England. He married and had four children who were born in England. He sailed to America on the ship "Mary and John", which sailed from Plymouth, England on 20 March 1630 just a few days ahead of the Winthrop Fleet of 1630 and arrived seventy days later, on May 30, 1630, at Dorchester, Massachusetts, located at the mouth of what is now Boston harbor. The ship's captain refused to sail up the Charles river as planned because he feared running the ship aground in waters that he had no charts for. He instead left the passengers in a desolate locale miles from their intended destination. The settlors were forced to transport 150,000 pounds of livestock, provisions and equipment 20 miles overland to their final destination. First settling in Dorchester, Massachusetts in 1630 and an original member of the Reverend Mr. Warham's church, Bygod Eggleston was one of the founders of Windsor, Connecticut in 1635, which is at the confluence of the Farmington and Connecticut Rivers. Windsor is about six miles north of where the city of Hartford, Connecticut stands today.

Bygod Eggleston brought to the colonies with him three sons, James, John and Samuel. A daughter Mary, another son James, and his first wife, are assumed to have died before Bygod left England and little else is known about them. He married again, Mary, and again, her surname is unknown. Together they had seven children; Thomas, Mercy (Marcy), Sarah, Rebecca (Deborah), Abigail, Joseph and Benjamin [my 7th Great Grandfather]. Bygod was fined 20 shillings in 1645 for "bequeathing his wife to a young man." The young man, a George Tuckye, was fined 40 shillings, but he took off and didn't pay. Why Bygod thought he needed a young man for his wife is certainly questionable as Bygod was 67 years old when he fathered his youngest son, my 6th Great Grandfather Benjamin Eggleston. Bygod survived his second wife as well, and married for third and final time. Once again, her name is unknown. No known children came of this marriage. Bygod Eggleston had at least 63 grandchildren and 144 great grandchildren.

Bygod Eggleston, 1586/7 - 1674
Bygod (aka Bigod, Begat, Bigot, Baggot) Eggleston was born in 1586 or 1587. He was baptised 20 Feb 1586/7 at Settrington, East Riding (now North Yorkshire), England. He died 1 Sep 1674 at Windsor, CT at the age of 88. His father was James Egleston, and his mother likely Margaret Harker.
James Egleston died in 1613, and Bygod and his sisters (Dorothy, Elizabeth and Jane) went to live with the family of their Uncle Sylvester in Norwich, England.

Bygod was married three times. He married his first wife (name unknown), likely in Norwich, Norfolk, England around 1612. He had five children by this wife: James I, Mary, James II, John, and Samuel. James I was baptised at St Margaret's Church at Norwich on 13 Apr 1612, and buried there on 15 Aug 1613. Mary was baptised at St Margaret's Church on 19 Jan 1612/3. James II was born around 1617, and died on 1 Dec 1679. John was born around 16xx, and died in 16xx. Samuel was born arout 1627, and died 1 Feb 1691 in Connecticut.

Bygod's first wife died between 1627 and 1630, when Bygod emigrated to Dorchester, MA from England, probably on the ship "Mary & John", though no definitive passenger lists exist. He brought to the colonies with him his four living children, James, Mary, John and Samuel.

Bygod was one of the founders of Windsor, CT in 1635. He married again, this time to Mary, possibly Mary Talcott, but this has not been proved. He had seven children by this wife, all born in Windsor, CT: Thomas, Mercy (or Marcy), Sarah, Rebecca, Abigail, Joseph, and Benjamin. Thomas was born 26 Aug 1638, and died in May 1697. Mercy was born 29 May 1641, and died 29 Aug 1684. Sarah was born 28 Mar 1643, and died 8 Jul 1713 in Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT. Rebecca was born 8 Dec 1644, and died before 1674. Abigail was born 12 Jun 1648, and died 30 Jul Joseph was baptised 30 Mar 1651 and died after 1674. Benjamin was born 18 Dec 1653, and died in Nov 1732. Benjamin was the executor and primary beneficiary of Bygod's estate when he died in 1674. Most of his children are mentioned by name: Benjamin, Joseph, James II, Samuel, Thomas, Mary, Sarah, Abigail. John and Mercy are missing.

Bygod survived his second wife as well, and married for a third and final time. Her name is unknown. No known children came of this marriage.

Bygod had at least 63 grandchildren and 144 great-grandchildren. His genes have be spread throughout North America, and many people can call him an ancestor.

There are various spellings of his first name in the records: Bygod, Bigot, Bigod, Baggett, Bagot, Begat. He was baptised Bygod, he signed his name Bigod and his will mentions Begat. It is speculated that his fellow Puritans found the name Bygod somewhat blasphemous, hence the use of alternative spellings.

The families were all recruited by the Rev. John White of Dorchester, Dorset. Nearly all of these families came from the West Country of England, i.e. counties of Somerset, Dorset and Devon. The ship landed in New England, on 30 May 1630, two weeks before the Winthrop Fleet arrived. These people founded one of the first towns in Massachusetts, Dorchester, 1630, and one of the earliest in Connecticut, Windsor, five years later.

The Mary & John left England in March of 1630 and arrived seventy days later, on May 30, 1630, at the mouth of what is now Boston harbor. The ship's captain refused to sail up the Charles river as planned, because he feared running the ship aground in waters that he had no charts for. He instead left the passengers in a desolate locale, miles from their intended destination. The settlors were forced to transport 150,000 pounds of livestock, provisions and equipment 20 miles overland to their final destination.

These are two suggested passenger lists for the ship Mary & John that Bygod Eggleston and his sons probably traveled on to reach the New World in 1630. These lists were compiled by the authors from a variety of sources. No actual recorded passenger list from the Mary & John has come to light and there remain many questions as to who actually sailed on this ship and who came on subsequent ships. Some of the people on these lists have later been proven not to have traveled on the Mary & John.

Bygod Eggleston was born in The Manor of Settrington, Yorkshire, East Riding in 1586. Two of his children, James and Mary, were baptized in St. Margaret's Parish, Norwich. He came to Dorchester, Massachusetts in 1630 on the Mary and John



(2) Bygod Eggleston, born about 1590 in Norfolk, England; married Bridget, born about 1590 in Norfolk, England. Parents of:

Mary; married Edward Sanderson

He was baptised in Settrington, Yorkshire in 1584 and his given name has allowed various researchers with no evidence whatsoever to assume that his grandmother was a member of the Bygod house, Lords of the Manor of Settrington and sometimes Earls of Norfolk. There is definite proof that his father was married to a member of the Frear family of Thorpe Bassett (over the hill), a minor farming family, but there is no definite proof that this Juliana Frear was his mother. I suspect that Bygod received his given name from a godfather who was a member of the Cadet branch of the family at Scagglethorpe (just down the road), who's life events are recorded at Settrington. This did not mean that this discovery detracts from Bygod Eggleston's achievements, or success of his descendants, who include John Brown the American abolitionist and President Rutherford Hayes.
