Notes for ELIZABETH PRATT:
- (In James Savage, -Vol 1  Dick.  First Settlers of N.E.) it states:
"BACKUS, STEPHEN, Norwich 1660, s. of William, by w. Sarah, d. of Lyon Gardiner, had Sarah, b. Apr. 1668;  Stephen, Oct. 1670;  Mary, Nov. 1672;  Ruth, 19 Dec. 1674;  Lydia, Nov. 1677; and Timothy, 7 Oct. 1682.  WILLIAM, Saybrook 1638, had there William and Stephen, rem. to Norwich a. 1660, was freem. 1663, and d. June 1664, leav. sec. w. Ann, wh. d. May 1670.  WILLIAM, Norwich, s. of the preced. m. Eliz. (prob. the eldest d. of William Pratt of Saybrook), wh. d. 1730, aged 87, had William, b. 1660; John, 1661; perhaps Sarah, 1663; Samuel, 1665; Joseph, 6 Sept. 1667; and Nathaniel, 1669;  and d. a. 1720.  Of this name twelve had, in 1828, been gr. at Yale and Dart. Coll.  Rev. Isaac, disting. min. of Middleborough, d. 1806, aged 82.
 
 

Notes for WILLIAM JR. (LT) (NORWICH FOUNDER) BACKUS:
Lieut. William Backus, son of William Backus, was born about 1638, and died in 1721.  He was an early settler and enterprising citizen of Norwich, Connecticut, and later became one of the proprietors of Windham and one of the legatees of Joshua Uncas, from whose estate he received three shares of a thousand shares each.  He married (first) before 1660, Sarah, daughter of John Charles, born October, 1637, after her death he married (second) before 1665, Elizabeth, daughter of Lieutenant William and Elizabeth (Clark) Pratt.  She was born in 1641 and died in 1730.  The will of Lieut. William Backus, dated February 8, 1693-4, proved April 17, 1721 (Files, New London District No. 228), mentions his (second) wife, Elizabeth, sons Joseph and Nathaniel, son John and grandson William, and daughters Sara, Elizabeth, Hanna, and Mary;  and referred to what son William had received by deed or gift.  Finally, he wrote, concerning his sons William and John and daughter Sarah, "what I have given them formerly with that which I doe give them in this my will shall be the whole of their portions of my estate, anything that I received of their grandfather Charle's estate nothwithstanding".  Since Sarah Charles was born in October, 1637, she was about the age of Lieut. William Backus, and could not possibly have been his mother, and thus the will proves she was his first wife.

25.  JOSEPH6 BACKUS (ELIZABETH5 PRATT, WILLIAM JR. (LT.) (HART. & SAY.

Notes for JOSEPH BACKUS:
MILITARY: Confirmed Lieutenant of the second Company in Norwich, under Captain
Samuel Griswold, with Thomas Waterman as Ensign.

OCCUPATION: Had a long term as Justice of the Peace, from 1719 to 1722
inclusive & from 1725 until his death in 1740.

Lieut. William Backus, son of William Backus, was born about 1638, and died in 1721.  He was an early settler and enterprising citizen of Norwich, Connecticut, and later became one of the proprietors of Windham and one of the legatees of Joshua Uncas, from whose estate he received three shares of a thousand shares each.  He married (first) before 1660, Sarah, daughter of John Charles, born October, 1637, after her death he married (second) before 1665, Elizabeth, daughter of Lieutenant William and Elizabeth (Clark) Pratt.  She was born in 1641 and died in 1730.  The will of Lieut. William Backus, dated February 8, 1693-4, proved April 17, 1721 (Files, New London District No. 228), mentions his (second) wife, Elizabeth, sons Joseph and Nathaniel, son John and grandson William, and daughters Sara, Elizabeth, Hanna, and Mary;  and referred to what son William had received by deed or gift.  Finally, he wrote, concerning his sons William and John and daughter Sarah, "what I have given them formerly with that which I doe give them in this my will shall be the whole of their portions of my estate, anything that I received of their grandfather Charle's estate nothwithstanding".  Since Sarah Charles was born in October, 1637, she was about the age of Lieut. William Backus, and could not possibly have been his mother, and thus the will proves she was his first wife.
