1	Joseph Northrup, immigrant from England, and perhaps from Yorkshire. He was 
one of 'Eaton and Davenport's Company of good character and fortune' who 
came from England in 1637 in the ships Hector and Martin. They landed in 
Boston July 26, 1637, and settled at New Haven in April, 1638. They were mostly 
from Yorkshire, Hertfordshire and Kent. Members of this company, and of Sir 
Richard Saltonstall's Company, removed to and settled Milford, CT, and the 
'free planters of the town' were enrolled 11/30/1639; but Joseph, not then being in 
church following, his name (with others) appears in the list immediately after the 
free planters.
		The surname Northrup was spelled as here given in the earliest records and 
inscriptions on tombstones - rup - sometimes rupp, and occasionally roop, and 
more often rop, although this last termination was not common at an early 
period. Joseph1, his son Joseph2 and his sons, James, Joseph, and Moses, and most 
of their descendants, spelled the name rup; Northrop, however, was the common 
form in England.
		January 9, 1642, Joseph united with the First Church in Milford. He married 
Mary, daughter of Francis Norton, who came to Milford from Wethersfield with 
the Rev. Peter Prudden and his party. Joseph died 9/11/1669. His will was dated 
9/1/1669. It mentions of his children only Joseph, Samuel, Jeremiah and John. 
Codicil to his will says, "My mother shall have a living in my house as long as she 
lives" - perhaps meaning his wife's mother, Mrs. Norton. His wife survived him, 
and made her will 1/24/1683; mentions Joseph, Samuel, Jeremiah (omits John, 
was probably was dead), Zophar, Daniel, William and Mary - the latter two being 
in their minority - also her mother Norton. Inventory of her estate was dated 
2/28/1683. Children b. in Milford:
i.	Joseph	b. 7/17/1649
ii.	Samuel	b. 10/26/1651
iii.	Jeremiah	b. 21/14/1653
iv.	John	b. 9/7/1656; d. probably before 1683
v.	Zophar	b. 6/21/1661
vi.	Daniel	b. 8/7/1664
vii.	William	b. 6/2/1666
viii.	Mary	b. 1/6/1670
