Ancestors of Tim Farr and The Descendants of Stephen Farr


John LAPHAM [Parents] was born 1 on 13 Dec 1677 in Newport, Newport, Rhode Island, United States. He died 2 after 1758 in Smithfield, Providence, Rhode Island, United States. John married 3, 4 Mary RUSSELL on 3 Apr 1700 in Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts, United States.

John2 and Mary (Russell) Lapham were probably married in the Apponegsnsett Meeting House in Dartmouth. Austin states (Gen. Dict, of Rhode Island, p. .1.20) that John2 Lapham was of Dartmouth and Smithfield, R. I.,. and that he was freeman in Smithfield in 1734. Although the land records of Smithfield show that he owned considerable land in Smithfield, much of which he sold to his sons when they settled there, it is doubtful if he himself went there until the latter part of his life. All of his fourteen children were born in Dartmouth and most of them were married there. When his daughter, Hannah, married Joseph Brown, 27 June 1751, he was still calied "John of Dartmouth."
The Lapham Account mentions no second marriage of John2 Lapham, but there is strong probability that after the death of his wife, Mary (Russell) Lapham, he went to Smithfield and that he married there a second time. On 25 March 1754., Thomas Lapbam, "of Smithfield in the county of Providence, Colony of Rhode Island," sold land in Smithfield to John Lapham, "of the same Town, County and Colony." (Smithfield Deeds, 3:369.) John Lapham and Elizabeth Buxton, "both of Smithfield," were married 4d 3m 1756 (Smithfield Friends  Recs.). Only John2 or his son, John3, could have been the John Lapham of these records, and John3 Lapham and his wife, Desire (Howland) Lapham, were both living at this time at Nine Partners, N.Y., where they had removed from Smithfield.
Elizabeth Buxton was the widow of Samuel Buxton of Smithfield who died there in June 1753. On 25 March 1758, John Lapham of Smithfield sold to Joshua Lapham a tract of land in Smithfield, his wife, Elizabeth, consenting and signing the deed with a mark (Smithfield Deeds, 4:425). In the will of Samuel Buxton, Jr., made 22 Sept. 1774., he made provision for the maintenance of "my honored mother, Elizabeth Lapham" (Smithfield Probate, 1769-1797, p. 132). This would indicate that John Laphnm died in Smithfield after 1758 and before 1774.
