  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: This name is variously spelled in colonial records as Redding, Reding, Reddings, Readings, Reading, and Riddan.

      I. Joseph REDDING was an early member of the church in Boston having come to New England in the fleet with Winthrop in 1631. In 1632, he removed to Cambridge, Massachusetts, where, on 14 May 1634, he signed the oath of allegiance to Great Britain. Three years later he is found at Ipswich, Massachusetts, where he possessed a planting lot near Labor in Vain, and is listed as a "commoner" in 1641.

      He was included in a list of taxpayers in 1648, who made "subscriptions to the Town," and to Major Denison "so long as he shall be leader." In 1664 he had a share in the division of Plum Island. His daughter and her husband, Samuel HUNT, in 1677 deposed in regard to their "father Joseph REDDINGs's lot of land.” He died 19 February 1674. His will of December 1673, written on parchment, is still preserved, though a greater part of it has been eaten away by mice. It appears that he had but one child, Elizabeth, for his will gave all his estate to his wife during her life, and then it was to be equally divided between the children of his daughter. His estate was valued at 351 pounds.

      This will was shown in Court 29 March 1681, in connection with the appraisement of the estate of his wife "Annice," accomplished 1 April 1681. Other records call her Agnes. In 1678 she was recorded as "Widow Redding."

      CHILD:

      Elizabeth born in Ipswich, Mass., married Samuel HUNT about 1656. Samuel was born in England in 1633.
