    14. Ebenezer4 Avery (James3, James2, Christopher1) was b. May 1, 1678, at Groton; bap. June 16, 1678, First Church of New London; … Ebenezer4 Avery was on the list of freemen of Groton, 1708; collector of rates, 1716; selectman, several terms; and, in 1734, was appointed to take charge of the town's ammunition. He received a hundred acres of public land in 1720. He was deputy to the general court, 1720, 1726, 1738; was commissioned lieutenant of the first company of Groton, 1728; captain, 1733; colonel of the eighth militia regiment, 1739. (Conn. Col. Rec., 6:173 & 7:54, 152, 405 & 8:155, 280). … Ebenezer Avery made his will March 24, 1746-7; it was proved Aug. 19, 1752. In it he mentioned his son, Parke, to whom he gave a grist-mill with dwelling house and lands adjoining, north of the county road, land near the New London ferry, and several parcels. To his son, Ebenezer, he gave land adjoining the farm that he had already given him; also 'my cloak & my Laced hat, with my smallest Silver hilted swort, & my new great Bible and my watch and my old carbine.' To his son, Simeon, he gave certain lands and'my Brass gun & speckled Stork gun & brass hilted sword, my silver head cain & oldest great Bible, my Druoy Coar & Silk Jacket & briches, my Scarlet Jacket with plate buttons.' He also gave money and household goods to his daughters, Mary Latham, Dorothy Morgan, Amy, and Unis. No mention is made of a wife; he probably did not marry a second time (New London Wills, F:321)."
