    • When his inventory was taken on 20 July 1662, Elias was "supposed to be deceased," suggesting that he had not returned from a sea voyage, and had probably died some time before that date. The inventory totalled 34 5s., including 19 10s. in real estate: "the dwelling house being very much decayed and ready to fall," 12; "corner of ground in the orchard," 7; and "a piece of ground without a house," 2 10s. Also in his inventory were "three old swords almost spoiled with rust, 3s."

    • Administration on the estate was granted at the request of Bridget Parkman, "relict of Ellias Parkeman of Boston, Senior," and her eldest son, to Thomas Rawlings in behalf of the children and creditors "allowing the widow her thirds in house & lands & the flock bed, rug, to the value of 2."
    Notes 
    • Elias Parkman was granted four acres at Naponset Neck in Dorchester, MA 5 Aug 1633; other lots in 1635 & 1636; and he moved early to Windsor, CT. Roger Clapp, no doubt at least an acquaintance of Elias, came on the "Mary and John" in 1630 and most of these passengers moved to Windsor between 1635 and 1640. Consequently, Elias could have also been a passenger on the "Mary & John" (1630), although this is unproven.

      If not, he probably came on the unnamed ship that sailed from Weymouth, Dorset, with 80 passengers and landed in Boston on 24 July 1633. Many of these passengers were granted land in Dorchester immediately after landing. Winthrop, in his journal, mentions "a ship arriving from Weymouth (England) with about 80 passengers, twelve cattle, who sat down at Dorchester. They were twelve weeks enroute, being forced into the Western Islands (Azores?) by a leak. They remained there three weeks and were very courteously used by the Portugals, but the extremity of the heat there, and the continual rain, brought sickness upon them, so as (a #) of them died."
      NOTE: It is believed that Aquila Purchase was one of those who died aboard this ship. The wife of Aquila was Ann Squire, sister of Mrs. Henry Adams. Also aboard this ship was Richard Rockett of Dorset.

      Elias was a mariner and he set up a shipping trade between Boston and the Connecticut River (Windsor). He was in Windsor in 1640 where in the land inventory on 5 Feb 1640/1 "Elias Parkeman" had seven parcels: "a homelot with the additions, fifteen acres"; "in the little meadow withswamp adjoining eight acres";"in the second meadow five acres and half"; "over the Great River in breadth twenty-five rods, in length three miles"; "on the south of the rivulet, sixteen acres"; "in the pallisado half an acre"; and "in the great meadow for a garden plot in breadth four rod, in length six rod."

      "Elias Parkeman" in 1646 mortgaged property to William Wadsworth of Hartford and was "of Seabrooke (Saybrook) lately inhabitant of Winsor."

      On 2 August 1652 "Elias Parkeman" mortgaged to Mr. Robert Peteshall on house with land belonging to it, now "in the tenure of Thomas Tyler of Boston." On 3 August 1652 "Elias Parkman of Boston, mariner & master of the good pinace called the Supplye of Boston" sold to Mr. John Holland of Dorchester "my now dwelling house situated in Boston, together with my home lot, being in measure one acre."

      On 7 August 1657 George Palmer of Boston, wine cooper, sold to Elias Parkman of Boston, mariner, a parcel of land in Boston together with the "house, shop & cellar thereon" formerly in the occupation of Hermon Garret, gunsmith, also a garden plot and a way into the garden, and use of the well. This plot was given to Deliverance and Nathaniel Parkman after their father's death by Silvester Eveleth and his wife Bridget, the widow of Elias, 24 November 1674.
