    Notes 
    • From the Windsor records:
      "November 16, 1668, Samuel son of Nicholas Hoyt, being of age, to Receive his Portion out of the Estate that was his fathers, his third set off to him. He received the dwelling house, with all the home lot and part of the meadow."

      On the margin of this record is the following: "All this, both the House and meado Samuel Hoyt hath sold to Samuel Gibbs." It is not clear when Samuel moved his family to Flushing. The name of Samuel Hoyt follows that of William Noble as proprietors of Flushing on the Indian deed, dated 14 April 1684; however, it is not know if he was actually living in Flushing at the time.
