116 a land developer and merchant. "Wentworth enriched himself by a clever scheme of selling land now in the state of Vermont to developers, in spite of jurisdictional claims for this region by the Colony of New York. He often named the newtownships after famous contemporaries in order to gain support for his enterprises (e.g. Rutland after John Manners, 3rd Duke of Rutland; Bennington he named after himself). Ultimately this scheme led to a great deal of contentionbetween New York, New England, and the settlers in Vermont. It created friction between the northeast colonies, and the dispute was hardly settled by the fromation of Vermont as a state. Wentworth also gave important government positionsto relatives and gave them extensive grants of land. He was allowed to retire from office in 1766. (Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benning_Wentworth)

Benning was the first Royal Governor of the colony of New Hampshire and was governor for 26 years (1741 to 1767). He was born and died in Portsmouth, NH. He was one of 14 children sired by Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor JohnWentworth. His father "had responsibility for the Province of New Hampshire." Benning attended Harvard College (Class of 1715) and on his return to Portsmouth he entered the merchant aristocracy, shipping timber, livestock, andprovisions to the plantation economies in the Caribbean. Europe was at peace during the years 1713 to 1739, and the British Navigation Acts (which restricted the colonies' imports and exports to British-owned and operated ships) wereroutinely violated. Benning Wentworth had many Spanish customers, as did other British North Americans mechants.

"In 1739 France declared that all shipping to and from Spanish possessions in the Caribbean would henceforth be in French-owned and French-operated ships. The weakened Spanish Empire had requested protection from France, and France wasresponding.

"The British merchants who controlled Parliament were not about to allow France to freeze them out of Spanish markets. The War of Jenkins' Ear began. Proclamations of war against Spain were read throughout British North America. AndBenning Wentworth was left with unpaid Spanish Caribbean bills and unhonored contracts. He faced financila ruin

"If Benning Wentworth failed in business, his English creditors would also. They began a campaign to get Wentworth on the Royal payroll, as Surveyor of the King's Woods in North America and as Governor of New Hampshire. They succeeded.

"In a 19th century copy of Wentworth's 1760 portrait, the Governor stands before white pines, the source of his wealth as Surveyor of the King's Woods in North America. His girth is supplemented by heavy cotton padding, to help show hiswealth (fat = wealth). He sports a fashionable Malacca cane, and stands on "marbelized" canvas floorcloth.

124 A Sarah Smith (AFN LZKY-4FT) born 1665 in Weathersfield, Windsor [sic] Connecticut Colony, British Empire is on 29 MAY 2014 in FamilySearch Tree shown as wife of Sarah's (I5237) husband John (I5238) and is sealed to him.

Age of John's wife (John born 24 MAR 1683 in Charlestown), Sarah LZKY-4FT, is given in FST as 1665 which would make her 18 years older than her husband and age 49 at birth of daughter Sarah KV2T-37Z. I think the Sarah Smith we want hereis the one that died in Rowley, Essex County, Province of Massachusetts Bay, British Empire, in 1753. She also married John on 29 MAR 1711 in Rowley. I do not trust identity of her or of her parents as presented currently in FST. Iestimate the correct Sarah's birth year was c. 1691.

Incidently, Sarah LZKY-4FT in the current FST record is said to have been born in Weathersfield [sic, Wethersfield] in Windsor County [never was any Windsor County in Connecticut, and original counties in Connecticut were initiallyestablished in 1666]. In 1666 Wethersfield was in Hartford County. When Windham [well, it starts with a W...] County was formed in 1762 from Hartford County and New London County, Wethersfield was still in Hartford County.

125 a school-master also at Choulderton where he taught Mr. Robert Parker. He had much of his education and tutorage under Mr. Thomas Parker who later, from Brazen Nose College in Oxford, requested that he come to help him in teaching theFree School at Newbury, where they taught school together until the time they came to New England. The reason of his coming to New England was because he could not comply with the ceremonies of The Church of England. Noyes, Reverend James (I244)
