R2. MAPLET (FLEWELLING) HAIGHT
   This part is strictly conjecture, although there are reasonable grounds for including it. Some of these reasons are discussed in, "Oak Leaves", Vol. 3, No.24, pp. 74-75. Apparently, on LDS microfilm 0238377, there is a genealogy of the Haight family. Included in this genealogy is Caleb Haight, whose first wife was Maplet "Forwelling". Since Caleb was a Quaker, lived in New Castle, Westchester Co. , NY; and since specific connections between the Haight and Flewelling families can be found in later years, it is reasonable to suspect that Maplet (a distinct Flewelling name) .had, as her maiden name, not "Forwelling", but Flewelling. If so, and taking into account the other factors, it is also most likely that she was a daughter of Robert Flewelling. One objection to this theory is that Maplet does not appear in Robert's will of 1768. Joseph Flewelling, later of Saint John, NB, also did not appear in Robert's will, but he seems almost certainly to have been Robert's son. It is a possibility that, according to the custom of the time, that some of Robert's children received their inheritance prior to Robert's death, and their mention in his will was not a necessity.
  Another possibility is that since Robert was a Quaker, that he would exclude those of his children who had left the Society of Friends. This second case may well be applicable in Joseph's case, but does not appear to be so likely in Maplet's case.
  The Haight (Hayt, Hoyt, and a variety of other spellings) family is another of those families which one finds intertwined in North American genealogy from early colonial days. To attempt a clear study of the genealogy of this family is impossible with the few fragments I have, but I do have enough to at least lay some basis for recognizing their interactions with the Flewelling family. I am attempting, here, to give some basic outlines of Robert Flewelling's family without relying on citation of sources, and proofs. Partially, this is because of the highly theoretical nature of this work itself, and the need for a great deal of work before such a definitive work could even be attempted. [The preceding was written before the popular advent of the internet, and there is more information on the Haight family available now than it 1988.] Even so, amongst the numerous persons who have contributed the fragments I am working from, some should be mentioned. One of these is Judy Todhunter ( a very distant cousin of the Oak Point Flewellings through the Griffins, and possibly to Robert Flewelling's family through the Haights), whose article, "The Griffins of Smithville, Ontario and the Haights of Connecticut", appeared in, 'The Canadian Genealogist' , (Generation Press, Agincourt, ONT), Vol. 1 No.4, 1979, pp. 213-228.
  Simon Hoyt (Haight), a son of John and Ruth Hoyt, was born in Dorchester, England 20JAN1590. In 1612, he married 1st Deborah Stowers (b. 1MAY1593, prob. d. before Simon came to America), daughter of Walter Stowers. Simon came to America in 1628. His second wife was Susannah Smith. In 1629, he was in Charleston, MA, in 1630 he was in Dorchester, and in 1635, he was in Scituate; when he joined the Society of Friends. In 1649, he moved to Fairfield, Connecticut, and he d. 1SEP1657 in Stamford, Connecticut. The LDS microfilm gives his wife as Sarah Noble?
  Amongst Simon's children was Nicholas Hoyt or Haight. Nicholas was b. 11NOV1622, and d. 7JUL1655 in Windsor, CT. His wife was a widow, Susanna, who had previously been married to a Joyse. Susanna d. in Windsor 4JUL1655.
  Amongst their children was Samuel Haight. Samuel Haight was b. 1MAY1647, and he d. SEP1712. He moved first to Flushing, Long Island, NY; but by 1698, in the census of that year, he is found in Hempstead, Long Island. This was the same time in which Thomas and Hannah (Smith) Flewelling, the parents of Robert Flewelling, were found there. At some time between 1698 and his death in 1712, Samuel Haight acquired land in Rye, Westchester Co., NY, and he may have lived there. His wife's name was Sarah.
  One of Samuel and Sarah Haight's children was Susannah Haight who married Richard Griffin. Richard's family were also Quakers, and his brother, John Griffin, is the most likely candidate as the grandfather of Elizabeth Griffin, who married Thomas Flewelling of Oak Point. At this point, we see the Haights not only living in the same areas as the Flewelling family, but beginning to intermarry with the same families, and sharing to some degree the same social situation in relationship to the Quakers. In other words, we can be fairly certain that Samuel Haight's family knew the family of Thomas and Hannah (Smith) Flewelling of Hempstead.
  Another child of Samuel and Sarah Haight was Samuel Haight. Samuel, Jr. married Charity. Samuel Jr. d. sometime before his father. He and Charity had at least one child, James Haight. James Haight married Anna Pope. Amongst the children of James and Anna (Pope) Haight was Caleb Haight, whom I believe may have married Maplet Flewelling, a daughter of Robert Flewelling of North Castle.
  One of Caleb and Maplet's daughters, Freelove Haight (possibly named after Maplet's sister?), married Obadiah Quimby. The Quimby family is another interconnected family, and their inter-relationships with the Flewellings will be indicated later. The Quimbys were also connected with the Haights in several ways. A Reuben Haight, born roughly about 1754, married Susannah Quimby (2APR1756-19FEB1824), daughter of Moses and Jane (Pelham) Quimby. A Deborah Haight, daughter of Jonathan, married a Josiah H. Quimby, b. 16JAN1791.
  In addition, the Quimbys can be found intermarried with the Carpenters, Underhills, Weeks, and other Quaker families of Westchester Co., and from Long Island. The opportunity and possibility for Caleb Haight to marry a daughter of Robert Flewelling is a very real one
  Another member of the Haight family shows a history intimately connected with what also appears to be a branch of Robert Flewelling's family. When Benjamin W. Fluelling left northern New York State, and went to the Niagara Peninsula in Upper Canada, he joined the Pelham Meeting of the Society of Friends. Later, Benjamin joined the Hicksite Schism in Norwich Twp., near the Long Point Settlement in Norfolk Co., ONT. (Note that Pelham is a surname, and Jane Pelham, wife of Moses Quimby, and mother-in-law of another Reuben Haight, was the daughter of Francis and Elizabeth Pelham of New Castle, NY.) In records of the Pelham Meeting are found records of Benjamin W. Fluelling's family; and side by side are the family of Reuben Haight, with his wife, Sarah. Reuben and Sarah Haight were from Westchester Co., and they later also moved to South Norwich Twp. They came to Upper Canada in 1817, almost the same time (if not at the same time) as Benjamin W. Flewelling's family. Another factor to consider is that while Robert Flewelling's wife was Maplet, and since Joseph Flewelling had a daughter, Maplet; Robert's brother, John Flewelling, had a daughter, Maplet; and John's son, Thomas Flewelling of Oak Point, had several descendants in whose name Maplet was incorporated; it is somewhat strange that Robert does not appear to have also named a daughter, Maplet. The above suggests that perhaps he did have such a daughter, and that the following was her family:
