Th ere we find that William Wi lcoxson , age 34 , together w ith h is wife Margaret, age 2 4, and t heir infa nt son John , age 2 , sailed from Londo n on the s hip, Plant er, April 5 , 1635. B esides the Wilc oxson famil y, the Plan ter s list i ncluded th e familie s of John Tuth ill, Thoma s Olney, Georg e Giddings a nd Wi lliam Beardsley , as well a s several singl e persons, in c luding Richard a nd Charles H arvey, William F elloe, Thom a s Savage, Michae l Willinson , Francis Peabody , Franci s Baker , Thomas Gree ne and a fe w others. The vesse l arr ived at Bos ton, May 2 6th of the s ame year and we hav e t he word of Orc utt,H istory of Str atford and Bridgepo r t , that his firs t Ame rican home wa s at Concord, MA . Sinc e he appeared at St ra tford, CT. i n the year 163 9 he coul d not have lived fo r m ore than fou r years ther e. At the very beginning of its settlement, Stratford w a s c a l led Pequennocke, then changed to Cupheag Plantati o n an d t he n to Stratford.The earliest map of Stratfor d a s i t wa s i n 1639 shows seventeen families living t here .

William Wilcoxson was selected to serve his town as D e p u t y in the Connecticut Assembly and was on intimate t er m s w it h Governors Winthrop and Bulkley. William Wilcoxson died early in the year 1652. Thi s w e k n o w from the fact that there is record of the inv ento r y o f hi s will on June 16th, 1652. Margaret remarri ed i n 1 66 4 to Wi lliam Hayden of Windsor, Ct., later rem ove d to K ill ingwort hnow Clinton , CT. The name of this line was originally Wilcoxson, bu t t h e l a st syllable was generally dropped about the mid dl e o f th e e ighteenth century. From Abner Wilcox & Lucy Eliza Hart Wilcox the fa c t t h a t just because the passengers of the Planter emba rk ed w i t h a blanket certificate from the minister of St .
