    Notes 
    • ROBERT SANFORD baptized 1 Nov 1615, Stanstead Mountfitchet, Essex Co., England; died June, 1676, Hartford, Ct.; married 1643, Ann, died 1682, Hartford, Ct. He was a brother of Thomas Sanford, the pioneer to this country. (Savage states that this Ann was a daughter of Jeremy Adams, which statement was no doubt based on the statement in Adam's will, calling Zachary Sanford his grandson. Recent research by A. D. Hodges, Jr., of Boston, a most painstaking and able genealogist, convinces him that Ann was not a daughter of Mr. Adams. He finds the Zachary Sanford married Sarah Willett, granddaughter of Jeremy Adams, which would account for his calling him grandson in his will. Jeremy Adams married Silence, widow of Samuel Greenhill, about 1636. There is no record or evidence of a previous marriage. Mr. Adams mentions only Zachary in his will, when there were in 1682 at least 7 living children of Robert and Ann. (See Hartford Deeds, dist. 399. Zachary Sanford on May 30, 1682, petitions on the part of his wife for his share of the Greenhill property.)

      Hinman in his work says that Robert was in Hartford as early as 1640. William S. Porter in his Conn. Hist. Notices 1842, p. 40, says that Robert is living on lots 61 and 62, Burr St. in 1655. Savage has him in Hartford in 1645 and the Town Records give the birth of his daughter Elizabeth as Feb. 19, 1645. Mr. Sanford's will was proven September 7, 1676. Mrs. Ann Sanford's will was proven Sept. 7, 1682, and mentions children Zachary, Robert, Ezekiel, Hannah and Abigail, and speaks of Robert, Hannah and Abigail for "their loving care" of her.
