Aaron Huntley (1654-1745)

Updated: Feb 4, 2019

Aaron Huntley was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on April 15, 1654. He married at Lyme, Connecticut, on February 22, 1676, to Mary Champion of Saybrook, Connecticut, daughter of Henry Champion.

From the book "John Huntley, immigrant of Boston & Roxbury, Massachusetts and Lyme, Connecticut, 1647-1977, and some of his descendants", by Virgil W. Huntley, 1978, we learn that Aaron was baptized in the First Church of Roxbury, Massachusetts, on October 27, 1657, and that he served in King Philip's War, for which he was given "one whole soldier's right [Cedar Swamp Lot No. 50] in the Town of Voluntown, Conn. which he sold to Joseph Lathrop of Norwich, Conn. for £8 on Nov. 5, 1716. [Voluntown Deed Bk 1]".

Aaron continued to live upon the "home lott", which he inherited from his father, until 1723 when he deeded the property to his son, David. [Lyme, Conn. 4:119]. David's son, David Huntley, Jr., sold the estate and the mansion house for £400 to Lewis DeWolf on July 17, 1739. A photo presumed to be Aaron Huntley's "mansion house" is shown here, copied from Virgil Huntley's book. Aaron's Will, which was written in Lyme on January 25, 1741, is also provided in the book.

Aaron lived four years after writing his Will. He died at the age of 91, on May 25, 1745, in Lyme. A copy is transcribed in Virgil Huntley's book.
