Margaret;A fair amount has been written about “John Wilcox of Hartford”, one of Hartfords Original Proprietors, accompanied Thomas Hooker from Newtown, MA (now Cambridge) in 1636.A great book to read, if you have not already found it, is “Middletown Upper Houses” by C. Collard Adams – it can be found in the Connecticut State Library in Hartford and the Russell Library in Middletown, CT,You will find a great deal of detail on the Wilcox family in it.You should also be aware of a “Supplement” to this book the only copy that I know of is at the Connecticut Historical Society in Hartford.This supplement contains valuable corrections to the book and additions not found in the original text.Another book“Hale, House”; Jacobus and Waterman.Also, the CT State Library in Hartford should be considered a source.
Briefly, the Wilcox family seat is in Bury, St. Edmunds (Suffolk) England.The earliest information that I have leads me to believe that in 1565 one Christopher Wilcox was born to ? & ?, married ? who produced a son, John b. 1595 in Bury, St. Edmunds; m. Oct. 12, 1615 Mary Wylshyre dau. ofGeorge Wylshyre and Philippa Thurgwood (m. April 25, 1589 at Terling, Essex, England).Mary produced, dau. Ann 1616; dau. Sarah 1618; son John II (John of Middletown, CT) 1620.
Your, “Sarah”, b 1618 in England; buried .Jan 15, 1690 in Hartford, CT (you can get a death certificate in Hartford); m. John Bidwell, (who d. Hartford 1687) The Bidwell family has lived in Hartford, Windsor & South Windsor, CT I have not gone deeper into Sarah’s family, sorry John Wilcox
