  • Notes  Name:
    • The Borden family is an ancient on both here in New England and over the water in old England, as well as one of historic interest and distinction. The New England branch has directly or indirectly traced the lineage of the American ancestor, Richard Borden, many generations back in English history.

      His first English forbearer went over to England from Bourdonnay, Normandy, as a soldier under William the Conquerer, and after the battle of hastings--A.D.1066--was assigned lands in the County of Kent, where the family afterward became useful, wealthy and influential, the village where they resided being named Borden. One John Borden, of a later generation, early in the seventeenth century, moved to Wales, where his sons Richard and John were married. These sons returned to Borden, in England and in May 1635 embarked for America.

      [1] Richard Borden is found a settler in Portsmouth, R.I. in 1638 in which year he was admitted an inhabitant of the island of Aquidneck, and in that same year was allotted five acres of land. He figured in the surveying and platting of the lands thereabout in 1639, and in the year following was one of those appointed to lay out the lands in Portsmouth R.I.. He was assistant in 1653-54; general treasurer in 1654-54; comissioner in 1654-55-56-57; and was deputy in 1667 and 1670. He bought land in Providence in 1661, and not far from 1667 became one of the original purchasers of of land in New Jersey from the Indians. [2]
