Notes for Edward (Spouse 1)
Edward Campe, Jr. was born 8 Jul 1650 in New Haven, New Haven Co., CT Moved to Milford in 1666. About 9 acres of land were granted to Edward Camp in the "Wolfe Harbour" which he exchanged in 1698 with Joseph Wheeler for another tract. Taken from Milford Land record I:143, II:93, 110.He was often known as Edward Camp of Milford to separate him from his father who lived in New Haven. "Camp, Edward married by Major Treat 15 Jan 1673 to Smith, Mahitabell dau. of John Sr." from Milford Vital Records The following is taken from"Camp, Jones and Related Families" by Nell Jones Carter, 1977:"In 1702, Edward Camp was one of three chosen to try a case between John Sloss and Joseph Kirby of New Haven, and he appears as one of the petitioners before the General Court in 1709 in a case against John Read and others. At a later period, he was one of the prominent men of Milford, representing that town in the General Court in May 1712. He was then called "Sergeant Edward Camp". He also bore this title in 1705 when he was chosen with Captain Samuel Eells to represent the Proprietors of New Milford in a committeee appointed by the General Court for the regulation of said town, and is so called in a the list of proprietors. It is thought that he derived this title form service against the Indians. (Note: Milford Vital Records, VOLE.S., Page 14 says: "Camp, Edward in 1671 destroyed the Indian fort.") His relations with New Milford were not permanent,though he was one of the proprietors and engaged in their behalf in 1709 in the above suit to obtain title to the lands. He never removed there himself and disposed of his lands to his sons." He died on 11 Mar 1721 and his will was probated 17 Mar1721. The following is taken from "Abstract of Will of Edward Camp, 2nd, of Milford" New Haven Probate Records, VOL 5, Page56, 57, 65: Heirs: Wife Elizabeth Sons: Samuel and John Camp Dau.

May it please yor Excelency, I heare that Mr. Hudshon our Sheriff hath returned Captin Berd's name for Sheriff of oure County.
Sr I humbly conceive it may be verry inconvenient, because there will be no justis from Milford at oure Sessions.
Mr. Bryan cannot ride to New Haven and Mr. Leet is often sick: and there is one Mr. Campe of Milford, a man of good estate and
many with us doe thinke him a fitt person, but leave it to yor Excellency's discretion. Sir, there was one of youre Excellency's
horses that was lame that was left with me, I waite for youre Excellency's comand whither I shall send him to Boston if any
opertunity presents. I thinke he is cured of his lamnes. Not farther to trouble yor Excellecny but to crave pardon for my
presumption herein and remaineing yor Excellency's humble servant to comand.
