    (A95) HIGHSTEAD - Church, court, and vital records, plus a reminiscence published in The N.E. Register in 1858 suggest that Susannah HIGHSTEAD was the dau. of Edward and Anna, that her siblings were Lucy, Elizabeth, Abigail, Edward, and Mary, and that the family removed from Canterbury. Conn., ca. 1739, to Canaan, Ct.  Edward, Sr., was killed 1741 by a falling tree.  Inventory was taken at Canaan, 23 May 1741.  Elizabeth m. at Sheffield, Mass., 23 Aug. 1754, Preserved NOBLE.  Abigail had a child in Egremont, Mass., in 1762. Susanna had a child by John HUBBARD at Sheffield in 1764.  Mary had a child by John HUXLEY at Sheffield in 1758 and was warned out of Sheffield in 1756 Evidence for this is found in Sheffield V R Hartford Probate District, Canaan Docket No. 2683; Court of Sessions Dockets, 1761-1795, p. 45, in Pittsfield Mass.; the Congregational Church at Canterbury, Conn., (1:156-7); the Register (12:123); and the records of the Court of General Sessions and Common Pleas at Northhampton, Mass. (6: 68). The paucity of Highstead/Highsted events and the concentration of the few found in one geographic lead one to conclude that prob. all belong to the same family.
