Totten Surname History
Most of the Totten family origins, USA genealogy, can be traced back to Edward and Joan Meade Totten, of Tottenham, England. They emigrated to North America, Long Island, NY. The following is from the Totten Family Hisory by Durling, "Richard Totten was born between 1643 and 1644, possibly at Hempstead, Long Island. No Richard is listed on the shipping lines prior to 1650 suggesting Richard's birth in the New Netherlands. No Richard Totten is listed in the 1658 tax list of Hempstead as having cattle, milk cows, calves, or acreage. His name first app ears in the Hempstead records in 1665, when he was granted a three acre home lot. Richard was a farmer and acted as cowkeeper for the town of Hempstead at least twice, in 1665 and 1668. He was listed as a freeholder in 1683. The names of six sons of Richar d and Sarah Champion have been learned. There are very likely so many daughters whose names have not come to light, and possibly a son or two who did not reach maturity. The 1698 census of Hempstead lists Richard's second wife, Elizabeth Roe, and children Sam uel, William, Benjamin, Jasper, Richard, Mary, and one unnamed ( newborn). Following Richard Sr.'s death on 12 June 1712 there wa s a quarrel concerning the estate between Peter, weaver, eldest son of Richard, and Peter Jr., cordwinder, eldest son of Peter. It was settled by Richard Sr's sons William, Benjamin, and Jasper."
If you are a Totten relative I hope you found this page. If you are not and know someone who is a Totten, or descendant of, please forward the link to this page. In reality, no one person can solve an entire genealogy puzzle because the task is so daunting that it truly requires co-operation of many branches to "flesh out" a family history. Too many of the Tottens will "dead end" (my apology for this bad genealogical pun) and never connect to the large file that I have compiled. If you are willing to share your family history and in return hopefully connect to the Totten file, please contact me. gatotten at hotmail dot com....yes, I have used this format to slow down the spammers so you will have to email me using the proper format. I hope to hear from you soon.
