13. Jonathan Seymour

13. JONATHAN3 SEYMOUR (Richard2, Richard1), of Farmington, Conn., baptized at Farmington 17 Apr. 1687, died before 5 Oct. 1725, when administration was granted on his estate. He married, 23 Dec. 1714, EUNICE3 HOLLISTER, born at Wethersfield, Conn., about 1696, daughter of Capt. Stephens (John1) and Abigail (Treat) and sister of Abigail, wife of his brother Ebenezer Seymour (12). Eunice (Hollister) Seymour married secondly, 13 Jan. 1726, William Chittester or Chidister of Wallingford, Conn.

Administration on the estate of Jonathan Seymour was granted 5 Oct. 1725 to his widow, Eunice Seymour, and to Mr. Ebenezer Gilbert, and said Eunice was appointed guardian of the children, viz., “Eliakim, 4 months old, Eunice 10 years, Martha 5 years [sic] Jerusha, 5 [sic], and Lois, 1 year and 7 months.”1) Soon after the second marriage of Eunice, widow of Ebenezer Seymour, his brother and sisters petitioned the Court that some other persons be appointed guardians to the children, because the said Eunice “is now married to one Wm. Chitester, a poor shiftless man, and the children are in a suffering condition, not likely to be provided for.”2) Robert Booth of Farmington was therefore appointed guardian of Eunice, Jerusha, and Lois, and George Hubbard of Middletown, Conn., who had married their aunt, Mercy Seymour (5, iii), was appointed guardian of Martha and Eliakim, children of the deceased.
