Charles S Tibbets updated the genealogy of William Knight in 1998 in TEG 18:72. William1 Knight was born about 1600 and died in Lynn 5:1m:1655. He married first in England a wife whose name is unknown who was mother to his first four children: John, Ann, Francis, Johanna. He married second at Lynn widow Elizabeth Ballard born 1609. She had previously been the wife of William Ballard and after the death of William Knight she married third to at Lynn 28:1m:1656 Allen1 Breed. William1 Knight of Lynn and his second wife Elizabeth had four children including Mary, Elizabeth, Jacob and Daniel. The author reviews each child in turn. Their daughter Elizabeth born abt. 1644/5; married about 1661 JOHN FARRINGTON. He was born 1624 and died in Lynn, 2 May 1666, son of Edmond and Elizabeth (Newhall) Farrington. After he died Elizabeth (Knight) Farrington married Mark Graves on 14 Nov 1667 in at Andover, Mass. He had 9 children with his previous wife (citing earlier research of Kenneth Vance Graves, Samuel Graves ... of Lynn p 13). The author proves the identity of these people in several ways. He shows that in 1661 John Farrington discharged “my father & Mother, Allen & Elizabeth Breed, the sum of the legacy bequeathed to my wife, acc. to the will of her late dec'd father Wm. Knight" [citing Essex Deeds. 2:53]. The author also shows that in 1666, Elizabeth Breed, aged about 59, deposed that “at the making of the match between John Farrington and my daughter Elizabeth, now a widow, I asked Matthew Farrington If he would not give his brother John the other half of their father's estate at the death of himself and his wife, and he said he would" [citing EQC Records 7:199 and the Farrington Family In TEG, Vol. 17]. The author lists their children and spouses. The author also shows that the mother Elizabeth and her first husband William Ballard had son’s John Ballard and Nathaniel Ballard and that William Knight’s (her second husband) will bequests to “John Ballard forty shillings two years after my decease or when my wife pleases; to Nathaniel Ballard forty shillings two years after my decease. The rest of my estate I will to be equally divided among my four children which I had by my last wife Elizabeth…” (including Elizabeth above).
