Edward Raynsford1

M, b. before 10 September 1609 (chr, d. 16 August 1680
      Owen Rowe, writing to John Winthrop during the winter of 1636, requested that "Mr. Rainsford may be accommodated with lande fro a farme." Thereupon the Puritan Government gave Elder Edward Rainsford a small island of eleven acres located between Peddock's and Long Islands, about a seven miles' sail from Boston. This island has for many years been called one of the Harbor's prettiest, but in its present runinous state it is hardly attractive from the channel. West Head still contains many delightful nooks and coves, however, and the High Bluff on the eastern side is a well known landmark. This bluff slopes away on the inside to form a flat area large enough for a baseball diamond.
     
     
      Between this land and West Head there is a narrow strip of beach, formerly wide enoooough for a road but now barely passable at high tide. When seen from the air, the island remembles an elongated animal.
     
     
      Edward Rainsford, or Raynsford as the name was sometimes spelled, was the brother of Sir Richard Rainsford, Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench. At the time of the Antinomian Controversy, the Puritans declared Rainsford a heretic and disarmed him. Elder Rainsford lived to a good old age and died on August 1680. His widow, who survived him by eight years, is buried in King's Chapel graveyard. By his second wife, Elizabeth, Edward Rainsford had ten children.
     
Edward was born before 10 September 1609 (chr at Staverton co., England. He was christened on 10 September 1609 at Staverton co., England.2 He was the son of Robert Raynsford and Mary Kirton. Edward immigrated to (an unknown value) in 1630.3 He married Mary NN---- before 1631 at prob. England.4 He married Elizabeth Dillie or Dilloe ? in 1633 at prob.

NN---- NN----1

F, b. before 1570, d. 22 April 1650
      The Name Phinney first appears in this country about 1637. The name is variously written; it appears under the form of Geney, Giney, Finney, Finny, Phenney, Phine, Phiney, Phinney, Phyney and Pleney. Ancient spelling: Fenis, de Fienes, and De Fiennes.
     
     
      In early days many names took the dimunitive form by adding ey. The name might come from the Latin "finis" (the end and mean a man who lived at the end of a cape or point of land.
     
     
      In the New York Public Library may be found a copy of "The Cheshire and Lancashire Historical Collector," edited by T. Worthington Barlow, Manchester, 1855. which carries the family back to "Lord Baron Fenis, 1066, a kinsman of King William the Conqueror."
     
     
      "Ingelram de Fiennes, a lord in Boulogne, who lost his life at Acon, 1189, married before 1171, Lady Sybilla de Boulogne de Tingrie. Maude, daughter of Ingelram de Fiennes, married Humphrey de Bohum (d. 1298). He and Roger Bigod ruled England under Edward I, the most powerful of all barons.
     
     
      William de Fines feudal lord of Martock, Somerset, of which manor he had livery, in 1207-08 on quit claim of his mother. He died in 1240-40. Bartholomew de Hampden (a descendant of Baldwin de Hampden, who was of note before the Norman invasion) married a daughter of Lord William de Fienes."
     
     
      The first members of the Phinney family to reach this country, were Mother Phinney withat least three children, or she may have accompanied her two sons and daughter. They came over from England and settled in Plymouth, Ma, before 1637. Mother Phinney was probably born in England. Some genealogists give her name as Catherine, but no proof that this was her correct name could be found.
     
NN---- was born before 1570 at England.2 She married Robert Finney circa 1595 at Parish Lenton, County Nottinghamshire, England. NN---- died on 22 April 1650 at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.2
