It seems that over the years, information gets added and sometimes
left out of some family trees and therefore I don't make claims that
this or any information I post is 100 percent accurate.
I also do not have any sources for the first 8 generations to prove
that the information is correct. I have also found contradicting information
regarding Robert Day marrying Editha Stebbins in England.

Robert Day was the son of Richard Day and was born on 31 July 1604 in Kilburn, Yorkshire, Enland. Robert married first while still in England in or before 1634, Mary _______ (b. abt.1606). In Apr., 1634, they came to this country on the ship "Elizabeth".They located in Newtown, now Cambridge, Mass. but Mary died shortly after their arrival here. Robert was made a freeman on 6 May 1635, which shows that he must have belonged to some church in the jurisdiction. He returned briefly to England in 1636 and while there, married second in Ipswich, England, Editha Stebbins.(Roberts marriage to Editha taking place in England is one of the facts for which we have no source) Editha was the daughter of William and Mary Stebbins and sister of Deacon Edward Stebbins. She had been born in 1615 in Woodham, Essex Co., England. Robert and Editha returned to this country in the same year and became original settlers of Hartford, Conn They were probably in the company of one hundred persons who journeyed through the wilderness in 1636 with the Rev. Mr. Hooker. They became members of the First Church of that town. Robert Day's Will was dated 20 May 1648. He died at the age of 44 on 4 Sept. 1648 in Hartford, Conn. and the inventory of his estate was taken on 14 Oct. 1648. Editha (Stebbins) Day married second Deacon John Maynard. He died without issue shortly after, and left all his property, which was considerable, to his wife's children,"provided they carried themselves well towards their mother." Editha married third in 1658, Elizur Holyoke of Springfield, Mass., who was the grandfather of President Holyoke of Harvard College. Elizur Holyoke died on 6 Feb. 1676 in Springfield, Mass. Editha died on 24 Oct.1688 in Springfield, at the age of 72. Children: 1. THOMAS, b. 1637 in Cambridge, Mass.; d. 27 Dec. 1711 in Springfield, Mass.;m. 27 Oct. 1659 in Springfield, Mass., Sarah Cooper (d. 21 Nov. 1726; dau. of Lieut. Thomas Cooper who was killed when the town was burnt by the Indians). Thomas Day's Will was dated 29 May 1711 and was proved 25 Mar. 1712. 2. SARAH b. 1640 in Hartford, Conn.; d. 19 Sept. 1677 in Hatfield, Mass. (killed by Indians with her son, Joseph); m. 1.) 17 Nov. 1658 in Springfield, Mass., Nathaniel Gunn (b. bet.1636 and 1640 in Roxbury, Conn.; d. 1663 in Branford, Conn.);m. 2. 24 Nov. 1664, Samuel Kellogg (b. bef. 1642 in England; d. 17 July 1711). Nathanial Gunn 19 Sept. 1677 in Hatfield, Mass. 3. MARY b. 28 Oct. 1641 in Hartford, Conn.; d. 17 Oct. 1725 in Hatfield, Mass.; m. 1.) 28 Oct. 1659 in Springfield, Mass., Samuel Ely; m. 2.) 12 Apr. 1694, Thomas Stebbins (b.31 July 1648; d. bef. Nov., 1696); m. 3.) 12 Nov. 1696, Deacon John Coleman. 4. JOHN b. 1643 in Hartford, Conn. JOHN DAY JOHN DAY, b. 1645 in Hartford, Ct. d. bef. 29 Apr 1730 in Hartford; m. 1675 in Hartford to Sarah Maynard, b. 1651; d. abt 1730, daughter of John Maynard and Mary Starr. His will was dated 16 Nov 1725, when he was "advanced in years," and proved 6 May 1730. He owned a share in a grist or saw mill, which he bequeathed to his son William." There has been some confusion about the wife of John Day, with some claiming she was Sarah (Stone) Butler, but the following reference from Savage, "Genealogical Dictionary of New England," vol. 4, p. 446 shows that that would have been impossible. "Richard Webb........he died [1665] leaving no children but took Sarah, dau. of Rev. Samuel Stone, and brot. her up, until she married Thomas Butler of Hartford; and in Hall's History we see that the widow [Webb] empowered a friend, in 1677 to adj. with Butler and his wife for their claim of the estate of her Husband. Butler's wife had half, and by the court was distribut. other portions to Bartholomew Barnard, who was husband of Sarah, dau. of Thomas Birchard, to Richard Homes, Stephen Beckwith, Thomas Barnum and others, of whose degrees of consanguin. it may not be easy to determine." This would indicated that John Day did not marry Sarah (Stone) Butler & have children by her in 1675 & 1677, because Thomas Butler did not die until 1688. John Day owned a share in a grist or saw mill, which he bequeathed to his son William. Children: 1. Joseph Day, d. 1696 in Hartford, Ct. 2.

Virkus, vol. 7, page 134 "New England Familes" By William Richard Cutter, A.M. 1913 Vol.2, p. 696 "Genealogical Dictionary of New England" by Savage, vol. 4, page 446 (Webb) "Genealogies and Family History of Central New York" by Cutter, vol. 2, page 666 "New England Families" by Cutter (1913), vol. 2, page 696 JOHN DAY
JOHN DAY, born 24 Sept. 1676/7 in Colchester, Ct.; died 4 Nov. 1752 in same; m. 21 Jan. 1696 in Hartford, Ct. to Grace Spencer, who died 12 May 1714 in Colchester, Ct. He m. (2) Mary _?_., who died 2 Nov. 1749, aged 74 years. There is disagreement about the parentage of Grace Spencer. There were two Grace Spencers born in the same generation. One Grace, b. 27 July 1674 in East Haddam, Ct., was the daughter of Samuel Spencer and Hannah Willey. This is the Grace named by Nathaniel Goodwin in "Genealogical Notes, First Settlers of Connecticutt and Massachusetts" (1982) as the wife of John Day. (Also in Virkus' "The Compendium of American Genealogy" and the Elmer I. Shepard Collection) However, TAG 27: 89 lists the Grace, b. 24 Sept. 1676 in Middletown, Middlesex, CT, the daughter of John Spencer and Rebecca Hayward/Howard as the wife of John Day and suggests that Grace, dau. of Samuel died young as she was not mentioned in her father's will. It is possible that children not mentioned in a parent's will received their settlement before the will was written. [Since this could be the case with Samuel Spencer, I personally will not rule Samuel out as the father of the wife of John Day-mra] John Spencer and Rebecca Hayward/Howard have been the accepted parents of Grace Spencer by the Spencer Family Association. However, since it was called to their attention that there were 3 sources that named Samuel & Hannah (Willey) Spencer as her parents, they are doing further research.
