Samuel Deering1

d. 23 October 1671
Marriage*1647He first appeared in the records of Braintree, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), when married, as his first wife, Bethia Baxter, daughter of Gregory Baxter and Margaret Paddy, in 1647.2,3,4,5,6
(Husband) Death3 January 1649/50Samuel became a widower when Bethia (Baxter) Deering died on 3 January 1649/50.7,8,9
Marriage*5 November 1651He married second Mary Ray, daughter of Simon Ray and Mary Rowning, on 5 November 1651 in Braintree, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England). They were married by Mr. Flint of Concord.10,5,11,12,2,13
(Husband) Death1 July 1657Samuel became a widower for the second time when Mary (Ray) Deering died on 1 July 1657.14,15,16,13
Marriage*10 November 1657He married third Mary Newcomb, daughter of Francis Newcomb and Rachel ______, on 10 November 1657 in Braintree. They were married by John Endecott, the first Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.1,5,17,18,19,20,2,21,22
Will*2 June 1659Samuel's father-in-law, Gregory Baxter, in his will dated 2 June 1659, left his son-in-law, Samuel Deering, his "little piece of salt meadow adjoining his own house, being in quantitie about an acre of ground." Seventeen days later, on 19 June 1659, Gregory added a codicil that voided Samuel's original gift and substituted two weather sheep for the land which, instead, was to go to Baxter's wife Margaret and their son John. To his granddaughter Bethiah Deering he gave £10 to be paid to her when she became 16 years of age. Also to Bethiah, he bequeathed one black calf of a year old and one black young ewe sheep, both to be delivered to her father to be improved by him for her use until she reached 16 years of age.2,23,24
Relocation*April 1661 In April 1661, the two families of Mary and Samuel Deering, along with Samuel's former mother-in-law Mary (Rowing) Ray George and her second husband Peter George, were among the first company of settlers on Block Island off the coast of Rhode Island. The Deering family returned to Braintree, however, before 1670.25,2
Death*23 October 1671He died on 23 October 1671 at Braintree.26
Administration*31 October 1671Administration of his estate was granted to his widow Mary (Newcomb) Deering on 31 October 1671 in Suffolk County. A portion of his estate was to be divided equally among his "eight" children. They were not identified by name, however, and of his children, the births or baptisms of only seven were recorded in Braintree. For an eighth child, Samuel Deering of Wrentham is highly probably. As the first daughter Sarah died young, there must have been another child, probably a daughter, to make up the tally of eight who survived their father.2
(Deceased) Court Action28 July 1674Joseph Adams filed a complaint against the estate of Samuel Deering and on 28 July 1674 Samuel's widow Mary (Newcomb) Deering was ordered to appear in court to answer the complaint, and in the meantime not to alienate any of the estate. She presented her account on 27 October 1674 and was ordered to pay 20 shillings each to the youngest seven children as they arrived at their respective ages, "the eldest having had her portion already." If there was any land at Quinebauge (Plainfield, Connecticut) belonging to the deceased Samuel Deering, it was to be divided equally among his eight children.2

The Delano genealogy has the child of that relationship born on the same day his father was being sentenced.
