"Connecticut Ancestry": Clement Buxton died at Stamford on 2 August 1657, one of those Stamford citizens to succumb to the general illness at that time now thought to have been malaria. His parents, and place and date of birth are completely unknown.
His wife's name was Eunice (?) (also spelled Unica or Uneca or even Unity in the records). After Clement's death, she married (2) at Stamford on 22 July 1658 Peter Brown, whose wife Elizabeth had also died in the summer of 1657 (21 September), probably another malaria victim. Peter Brown died on 22 August 1658, less than a month after this marriage, and "Unica Brown" then married (3) at Stamford on 9 March 1659, Nicholas Knapp. She appears to have died at Stamford in early April 1670. The will of Nicholas Knapp, made on 15 April 1670, probably shortly after her death, after providing for his own natural children, included the following provision for Eunice's daughters: "I give to my two daughters in law (i.e. stepdaughters) Viz: Sarah and Unice Buxton all their others clothes as a free gift: except one hat and one new petticoat which my will is that they should have owned of their portions: also I will and bequeath unto Unice Buxton the new bible as a free gift (also) My will is that the portions due to my two daughters in law, viz: Sarah Buxton and Uneca Boxton out of the estate of their father Clement Buxton I say that their portions be currently payd according to their proportion of that inventorie."
The lands of Clement "Buckston" were recorded in Stamford on 15 March 1650 (probably 1650/51) as part of the general inventory of real estate being made at that general time....
By the time of the 1701 tax assessment he had accumulated a real estate valuation of 112 pounds that was among the more substantial holdings in the town.
His inventory was taken on 3 September 1657 by Richard Law and John Holly, and contained 4 bibles and other books in addition to the usual real estate, livestock and household items, probably indicating that he was a literate man. the same inventory also demonstrated that he had shoe-making equipment, and also clothes made of leather. Jeanne Majdalany studied this inventory in detail as well as those of several others that were recorded in the Town Records, and made the interesting observation that he was, "the only man listed as having a desk and also a wheelbarrow."
