Clement Weaver and Rebecca Holbrook were married in Glastonbury England. They came to America sometime after 1630, possibly before Rebecca’s brother Thomas and his family settled in Weymouth, MA, in 1635. Clement was found in a list of property owners in Weymouth in 1643.
At some point between 1643 and 1651 Clement left Weymouth and moved to the Island of Rhodes, which comprised both Portsmouth and Newport.
By 1655 both Clement #1 and his son Clement (#2) lived in the jurisdiction of Newport, which included Middletown for they were in that year among those listed in the roll of freemen of Newport. Clement #3 was born around 1647.
Clement #2 and Clement #3 were among the fifty grantees of the 5,000 acres to be later known as East Greenwich. It is generally agreed that it was Clement Weaver #3 who lived in the house at 125 Howland St.
In 1680 Clement (#2) deeded his 90 acres of farmland in East Greenwich to his son Clement Weaver (#3).
The Clement Weaver House, circa 1679, on Howland Road in East Greenwich, RI.
