bullet  General Notes:


Edward Pasfield had Puritan sympathies, he and several of his cousins and other relatives were witnesses in front of Lord Rich, also a Puritan sympathizer, against several individuals who "had attended the religious exercise in Wethersfield."
It is interesting to note that the first Puritan town founded in Connecticut North America in 1634 was named Wethersfield. The Puritan family of Rogers, Richard, Daniel and Ezekiel came from Wethersfield Essex. Ezekiel was a Puritan settler in Nth America.

Edward & his son Edward are mentioned in the Will of William Hewitt dated 6 Oct 1597.

Edward was owed money by John King in his estate papers dated about 19 Jun 1593.[1] He and son Edward were mentioned in the will of William Hewitt dated 6 Oct 1597.[2] Edward Sr. was a witness and Edward Jr. received money in this will. On 30 Oct 1598, Edward was mentioned in the will of his mother Agnes.[3] Edward was called a "welbeloved kinsman" by Margaret Chapman in her will dated 2 Apr 1599.[4]

Edward was a miller by profession. This profession brought him to court on three occasions. On 11 Sep 1602, his access to water was impeded by actions of Richard Garter, which caused him to lose profits for a "long time."[5] He was called Edward Pasfield the elder. Also, he was hauled into court for not being an apprentice as a miller for the requisite amount of time and fined two pounds a month on 30 Sep 1602.[6] He evidentially did not get the message. On 13 Jan 1603, he was hauled into court for the same reason and fined again.[7]
