Subject: [DOXSIE-L] Thomas DOXEY born 1651

The NEHG Register, Volume 14, July 1860, page 201, has this entry:

Natives of America who were scholars of Dugard.In the London Notes and
Queries for February 11, 1860 (Second Series, IX, 101) I find some
extracts from Dugards MS. Register of Admissions to Merchant Taylors
School inter 1644-1661. One of them being a native of America, I copy for
the Register:--

Thomas Willoughby, only son of Thomas Willoughby, born in Virginia, in
America, 25 Dec 1632; admitted, May 13, 1644.

After than list are given two names from Dugards Admission Book to the
Private School which he opened in Coleman Street, and which seems to have
attracted a very large number of pupils. Both were natives of America.


Eliab Yale, son of David Yale, merchant, born in New England, 1649;
admitted, 1 Sept 1662.

The last person, Elihu (not Eliab) Yale, was born at New Haven, April 5,
1648, d. July, 1721, probably at London, and was buried at Wrexham in Wales.
He was a benefactor of Yale College, which derived its name from him. His
epitaph, and some account of his life will be found in the Register, vol.
Iv, p. 245. J. D.

Does this mean that Thomas DOXEY was sent back to England to attend school
at 11. Does anyone know about this and have any comments. I am assuming
that this Thomas is the son of Thomas DOXIE and Kathryn WARING. Please see

Thomas DOXIE, the son of James DOXIE and Sarah WELLS, was baptized 12 Mar
1611 at Moulton, Northampton, England and died 11 Dec 1651 at Pequot Harbor,
New London, CT. He married Kathryn WARING baptized 19 Feb 1629/30 in
London, England.

Kathryn was the daughter of Michael WARING born ca 1603 in London, England
and Judith COWLEY born ca 1607 in London, England. Kathryn married (2)
Daniel Lane and (3) Thomas MOORE.

The child of Thomas DOXIE and Kathryn WARING was:

Thomas Doxie born 1651 in New London, CT and died 7 Mar 1687/88 at
Barbadoes, West Indies and buried at St Michaels Parish, Barbadoes, West
Indies. Thomas married (1) Sarah BUSHELL of England in Christs Church
Parish, Barbadoes, West Indies and (2) Elizabeth UDALL born 1688, widow? of
David SCOTT.

The children of Thomas DOXIE and Sarah BUSHELL were:

1. Thomas Doksi, born 1681 Long Island, NY
2. Samuel Doxie born ca 1679 Long Island, NY
