Palmer Tingley

arrived  1635 

9th Great Grandfather of Thomas Lloyd Van Doren

My grandmother was Della Ann Tingley. This Genealogy follows a direct line back
 to the first Tingley in America as follows:

I have found Palmer Tingley listed on the passenger manifest off the ship "Planter",
which departed London April 11, 1635 and arrived in
Boston, Massachusetts Bay
Colony on June 7, 1635. The manifest showed
he boarded the ship on April 8,1635,
several days before sailing.

Passengers were boarding the ship for several weeks and Palmer was among some of
the last boarded. It does not show any family that
accompanied him, but listed his
occupation as "a miller".

Apparently after his arrival in 1635, he married Anna Fosdick in Charlestown, Massachusetts.

(Compiled by Orra Eugene Monnette)
The first immigrants settled in New England, where Palmer Tingley, or Tingle came
to Ipswich in 1639, and is mentioned by Farmer as having been a soldier in the Pequot War.

SAMUEL TINGLEY settled at Malden, where he died, 28 Dec. 1666, leaving a widow,
Elizabeth, by whom he had Samuel, b. Feb. 1666. His widow was a daughter of Thomas Call,
and she next married Daniel Shepardson, the second. (SAVAGE, Vol. IV, p. 305.)

Among the "Founders of New England" had been PALMER TINGLEY, who came, 1635,
with a certificate "from the minister of Kingston upon Thames in the County of Surrey,"
etc.--"Palmer Tingley, A Miller (aged) 21." (N. E. HIST. GEN. REG., Vol. XIV, p. 306.)

He came from Kingston-on-Thames, England. He is claimed as the husband of Anna Fosdick
because he was the only person of the name Tingley in the Colonies of suitable age to be her
husband. There is no record of his marriage or death. He brought with him a certificate from
the minister of Kingston-on-Thames stating that he was no subsidy man, and testifying to his
conformity. Most records show his name to be Tingle. Some researchers claim his father to be
William Tingle born ca. 1588, this information is not confirmed. He emigrated on Apr 8, 1635
from London, England; sailed on the ship "Planter." He received a grant of 8 acres of land for
his services in the war against the Pequot Indians in 1637 in 1639 at Ipswich, Essex Co, MA.

WARS - Pequot War

The first of the many wars between whites and Indians was fought in 1637 between the Pequots
and New England settlers. The Pequots were a warlike tribe centered along the Thames River
in southeastern Connecticut. By 1630, under their chief, Sassacus, they had pushed west to the
Connecticut R. There they had numerous quarrels with colonists, culminating in the murder by
the Pequots of a trader, John Oldham, on July 20, 1636. On Aug. 24 Gov. John Endicott of
Massachusetts Bay Colony organized a military force to punish the Indians, and on May 26,
1637, the first battle of the Pequot War took place when the New Englanders, under John Mason
and John Underhill, attacked the Pequot stronghold near present-day New Haven, Conn. The
Indian forts were burned and about 500 men, women, and children were killed. The survivors
fled in small groups. One group, led by Sassacus, was caught near presentday Fairfield, Conn., on
July 28, and nearly all were killed or captured. The captives were made slaves by the colonists
or were sold in the West Indies. Sassacus and the few who escaped with him were put to death
by Mohawk Indians. The few remaining Pequots were scattered among other southern New
England tribes.
