Hannah VANTREE was born 1619 and married the father of Daniel Brainerd (Jr?). The father may also have been named Daniel. Daniel Jr. was a prominent founder of Haddam, CT. On some web pages, Hannah's surname is shown as VENTRES.
In his will, William VENTRUS says: "It is my will that my two sons John & Moses VENTRUS pay unto their sister Susanna BRAINWOOD, my daughter, each of them £5 in provision pay..."Brainwood is one of many well-documented versions of Brainard. Susannah was the wife of Daniel (III).
Posts in this forum refer to ancestors named VENTRIS who lived in Haddam.
I would like to know if all of these spellings represent the same family line, as they seem to.
