    William Hallett, a son of Richard Hallett, was born about 1616 in

Bridgeport, Dorchester, England and died August 17, 1729 in Newtown,

Queen County, NY.  He married Rebecca Bailey. She was born about 1629 in

England.  He married Elizabeth "Bess" (Fones) [Winthrop] in August 1649.

Elizabeth, a daughter of Thomas and Anne (Winthrop) Fones, was born

January 21, 1609/10 in Groton Manor, Suffolk, England. She married to

Henry Winthrop April 25, 1629 in England, and one year later Henry set

out for America aboard the "Talbot".  The pregnant Elizabeth was to

follow later with her step-mother-in-law, the governor's third wife (who

was also pregnant at the time). On July 2, 1630, the very day of his

arrival in the New World at Salem, MS, Henry went for a swim at a nearby

Indian village. While making for a boat across the bay he suffered a

severe cramp and drowned in full sight of his friends.

Elizabeth gave birth on May 9, 1630 to a daughter named Martha Johanna.

On  November 2, 1631, she arrived in Massachusetts aboard the Lyon with

her daughter and without a husband.

      The situation did not last for long. Within three months of her

landfall she had met and married Robert Feake (c.1602-c.1662), a

landowner of some means who had arrived with the Winthrop fleet the

prior year. Their union produced five children, including Hannah Feake,

who married John Bowne.

      Robert Feake subsequently went insane as a result of personal,

domestic, and financial troubles. Elizabeth left him for his business

manager, William Hallett. They were eventually recognized as husband and

wife and settled in the New Netherlands colony in what became Halletts

Cove, Long Island. Elizabeth (Fones) [Winthrop] {Feake} Hallett died

about 1656 and William Hallett married Susannah Thorne in April 1674.

She was born in New Town, Long Island, NY.

    William arrived in Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1631 aboard the

"Lyon." He was a business manager for Robert Feake.
