William Dennie1

b. 23 October 1726, d. 3 July 1783
Father*John Dennie1 b. 7 Oct 1694, d. b 3 Feb 1747
Mother*Sarah Webb1 b. 30 Jan 1702/3, d. b 17 Feb 1749
Baptism*23 October 1726William Dennie was baptized on 23 October 1726 at Church of Christ, Fairfield, Fairfield County, Connecticut.1
(Son) Will25 December 1744William Dennie was named in the will of his father John Dennie dated 25 December 1744. He bequeathed to his loving wife Sarah forever one third part of all his estate both real and personal whether in this province, the colony of Connecticut, or elsewhere at her own disposal, his three Negro servants together with all household stuff. His will directed that 500 pounds lawful money of the province be lodged with his executors to be put to interest and improved for any of his children who were under age at the time of his death. He bequeathed to his son Albert Dennie 25 pounds lawful money which, with what he had already received, was his full portion and share. All the remainder of his estate, whether real or personal, he gave to his four other sons: John, William, Thomas and Joseph, and to his five daughters Mary, Grizzel, Elizabeth, Sarah and Abigail to be equally divided among them.

The biggest surprise in the will, published by researchers in 2002, was learning about Joseph, the fourth son of John Dennie. Joseph had not been mentioned in earlier research published in 1930-1932.

Mr. Dennie's will named his children in groups of men and then of women. The order of the naming by gender by their father in his will corresponds to the known dates from records in Fairfield Church. His will was not challenged in court.1
(3rd Son) OccupationWilliam and his four brothers, Albert, John, Thomas and Joseph Dennie, all became merchants in Boston like their father John Dennie, dealing for the most part in West India commodities, such as molasses, sugar, rum and hemp.2
Guardianship*17 February 1749Following his mother's death, William Dennie was appointed guardian for his minor siblings, Thomas, Abigail and Joseph, in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), on 17 February 1749.2
(Son) EstateWilliam was the Administrator of his mother's estate. She had died without a will, and her inventory, at six pages, was shorter than her husband's and listed the contents of an upper middle class Boston house of the time and 620 pounds of personal articles. Her inventory included only two of the slaves, Caesar, with the one foot, and Flora and, as with her husband's inventory, listed no real estate.1
Land Transfer*1758He sold land in Ridgefield, Fairfield County, Connecticut, in 1758.1
(Son) Land Records The distribution of John Dennie's Connecticut real estate as bequeathed in his will of 1744 was not known to researchers until 2002 and presented many questions. He left his real estate in two parts: two-thirds of his Connecticut property directly to his nine named children, and one-third of all his estate forever "both real and personal whether in this province the colony of Connecticut or elsewhere" to his widow Sarah. This bequest created an estate in real property in Connecticut for Sarah (Webb) Dennie, his widow. Because Sarah died without leaving a will, it was left to the courts to identify and name Sarah's children and heirs.

Land records in Fairfield and in Ridgefield, both in Fairfield County, Connecticut, gave researchers information on the identity of Sarah's heirs. The land records also clarified John Dennie's two wives and clearly identified their two sets of children. Sarah (Webb) Dennie's children were named, and those of Mary (Edwards) Dennie were identified as the other children. Joseph Dennie appeared with Sarah's children as her heir, but not as her son.

The Dennie children all eventually, after they attained their majority, or for the girls, married, sold their Fairfield and Ridgefield real estate. Researchers noted in their report, as an aside, that the real estate was of small value compared to the other property they inherited from their father.

Determined researchers explained their strategy by stating that complete land research for a parcel of property required that deeds be located for all the land sales of the heirs of John Dennie, which they called "the two thirds of the property" and of the heirs of Sarah Dennie, or "the one third of the property". They believed these transactions would identify all the interested parties in the entire package of real estate under review. They knew they were looking for a minimum of two deeds: one for the nine children of John Dennie and one for the court determined heirs of John's widow, Sarah (Webb) Dennie. Unfortunately, they did not know the maximum number of deeds they were looking for, since each of the children could have sold separately, one at a time.

Extensive research of the Dennie family land records in both Fairfield and Ridgefield was said by the researchers to have been "revealing, surprising and astonishing." They took special note in the first two land sales in the grouping and the unity of eight of the heirs. Eight of the nine children named in John Dennie's will joined together to sell all their two thirds interest at one time in one transaction. The deed named each of the eight stating "which said [children] are eight of the children and heirs of John Dennie late... Whereas the same John Dennie by his last will and testament duly proved gave and bequeathed unto his said eight children and his other son Joseph two full third parts of all the real estate... nine acres in Fairfield..." The deed was dated 24 Jan 1758 and recorded 8 Jun 1762. All of the parties named except Joseph signed at one time.

The second deed they found recorded in Fairfield was the sale by the Sarah Dennie heirs, again excepting Joseph. Sarah's four children were named and described as "children and heirs of Sarah Dennie late of Boston deceased intestate... whereas Mr. John Dennie late... by his last will duly proved approved and allowed gave and bequeathed to his widow the said Sarah Dennie one full third part of all his real estate in fee simple... The same Sarah soon after dyed intestate leaving the said William Thomas Sarah and Abigail and one Joseph Dennie her children and heirs". The deed was dated and recorded on the same dates as the first deed, 24 Jan 1758 and 8 Jun 1758, respectively.

The researchers also noted that William Dennie had received a double portion as the eldest son of the intestate Sarah, not the eldest son of John, and sold both parts. Sarah's other three children each received and sold one part. Joseph Dennie had received one portion which he would sell separately, later. John Dennie's son John had received two portions of his father's estate, and each of his siblings had received one. All, except Joseph, sold in full in the first deed described.1
Occupation*Brothers William and John Dennie were among the most important merchants at Boston during the 1750s, 60s and 70s. Both were among the gentlemen occasionally invited to accompany the governor's train on formal tours of the Boston schools, and their names appeared frequently, in different capacities, in the records of the period.2
Biographical Info*29 August 1776William Dennie was a wealthy bachelor in Boston. Like his half brothers, John and Albert, he was a town constable in his youth. He succeeded his father, John Dennie, as director of the town's warehouse "opposite the Golden Ball" at the decreased charge of £24 per annum. He was active in the interest of the colonists from 1770 to 1775, serving on several important committees, but after Concord and Lexington he declined to go further. Though elected to the Committee of Safety, he refused to serve, and a substitute was elected on 29 August 1776.2
Death*3 July 1783His death was reported in the Massachusetts Spy newspaper on 3 July 1783 in Boston. He was described as 57 years of age, and a merchant.3
Will*1783His will was probated in 1783 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress). He left generous legacies to numerous relatives, and a large part of his property was left to Mrs. Elizabeth Swan, the wife of Major James Swan.2
