It should be mentioned that two Lander brothers, probably cousins of William, were somewhat famous explorers. Richard Lemon Lander (1804-1834) and John Lander (1807-1839) were natives ofCornwall, England and sons of an inn keeper at Truro. On behalf of the British government, the brothers determined the course, and source, of the Niger River in Africa in the year 1825. 
Lander, William (I171)

C.W. Post, as he was known, was the inventor and original manufacturer of Post Toasties, based in Battle Creek, Michigan. The company was subsequently bought by General FoodsCorporation.
He moved with his family from Springfield, Illinois to Fort Worth, Texas in 1887. After spending some time at the Kellogg Sanitarium, he established La Vita Inn on the outskirts ofBattle Creek, dedicated to health improvement by diet and exercise. 
Parsons, Caroline (lathrop) (I1001)
 
186 ||||
He fought at Crown Point and other battles of the Revolutionary War. It has been noted in Burpee's book that while travelling home after his discharge from the Continental Army, he wasattacked by a panther. He managed to frighten the animal away by yelling and throwing his pack at it (a natural reaction, I assume). 
Post, Joshua (I267)
 
187 ||||
His home was at Eel River, though he had lands in what was known as Prence's Bottom, now near Summer Street, Plymouth. He also owned or had rights to land in the Namasket orMiddleborough purchase; Punckateesett on the Seconnett River (now in Rhode Island); and at Agawam and Manomett Ponds.
He was a member of the Plymouth militia in 1643; surveyor of highways in 1654; selectman in 1667; and representative to the General Court of Plymouth Colony 1657-1660 and 1663-1665.

The Reverend came from England to America in the ship Hector with Eaton and Davenport, and with "considerable money in his pocket and, in the back of his mind, the purpose of founding areligious hierarchy of his own." (Connecticut Trilogy p. 240). He and his party arrived at Menunkatuck, or Guilford. The Indian "queen bee" Shaumpishuh relinquished this land in return for adozen each of coats, shoes, pots, hatchets, knives, porringers, and, finally, a dozen looking-glasses and two pairs of stockings.
The Reverend and his company then built Guilford's Old Stone House, is reputed to be the oldest stone dwelling in America (see Trilogy). Apparently, it still stands and is a somewhatrestored status. It is probable that Whitfield's daughter(s) were married here.
Whitfield and his wife Dorothy went back to England around 1651, but Old Stone continued to be a place of worship for some time to come. 
Whitfield, Rev. Henry (I70)

There is mention of earlier Landers situated in the Massachusetts area, but it is uncertain whether they are directly related to the this William Lander.
According to the "Pioneers of Massachusetts", page 279, comes the information that a Thomas Lannder or Lannders, age 22, came on the ship "Abigail" in July, 1635. He settled at Sandwich.He married Jane Kerbie on July 2, 1651, and had three children: John, born 2 January 1653; Martha, born 7 March 1654, and Mary, born 23 January 1656. Thomas Lannder died 11 November 1675.
There are numerous mentions of a John Lander, of uncertain connection to our known Lander ancestors. John Lander was granted land by the Selectmen of Salem, Massachusetts on 5 April1672, and was a witness in the Court of Essex County, Massachusetts in 1674 (from the "Essex Aniquarian" Volume 9, pp. 38-41).
A John Lander, along with his wife, were presented for committing fornication before marriage, and they were sentenced to either be whipped or pay a fine (from the Records and Files ofthe Essex County Quarterly Courts, Volume VI, July 20, 1675).
John Lander and wife Sarah Glanfield, daughter of Robert Glanfield, conveyed part of Mr. Glanfield's house to a Samuel Carlton of Salem, Massachusetts on 30 December 1732 (EssexAntiquarian, Volume 10, p. 163).
Supposedly, many of the Essex County records were destroyed in a fire, making connection between our William Lander and previous Landers somewhat dubious. 
Lander, William (I164)
 
191 ||||A Hartford, Connecticut founder, he was a Deputy to the General Assembly of Connecticut in 1654. His name appears on the Hartford founder's monument at Main and Gold Streets.
According to Original Proprietors, he was a surveyor of Highways in 1639 and 1647, and was one of the original proprietors of Norwalk. He was also a Deputy in 1654. 
Marvin, Matthew (I57)
 
192 ||||A note in Gleanings states that he lived during the reign of King Henry III (assumedly, of England). Henry III reigned from 1216 to 1272.
 
Petley, John (I1339)
 
193 ||||Abbess of Notre Dame in Laon de Ramerupt, Adele (I8344)
 
194 ||||According to his tombstone, he served in the Revolutionary War in Captain Grant's company. Lathrop, David (I668)
 
195 ||||According to the Onondagas (County, NY) Historical Association's Volume of Revolutionary Soldiers, page 295, comes the following:
Gideon Marlett, Ens. in 1st Company (Capt. Jacob Gardiner) of 3rd Battalion (Col. Fredrick Fisher) of Tyron County Militia (Brigadier General Nicholas Herkimer).
At that time, Tyron County New York consisted of what presently are counties Fulton, Montgomery, Ontario, Herkimer, Otsego, Tioga, and Hamilton. 
Marlett, Gideon (I177)
 
196 ||||According to Thomas Hunt Morgan-Pioneer of Genetics by Ian Shine, Miles Morgan and Elizabeth Bliss are the ancestors of John Pierpont Morgan (1857-1913). Morgan, Miles (I1801)
 
197 ||||Ensign, or Lieutenant, Leffingwell has made a place in history, as so many books give testament to.
Thomas played a very important role in what is often referred to as the War for the Relief of Uncas. Chief Uncas of the Mohegan tribe, a valuable asset to the Colonists, was involved ina tribal war with a competing group of Indians. On a slab at the site of Uncas' old main fort, "Shantok", is written:

Here stood the fort of
Uncas
Sachem of the Mogegans
and friend of the English
Here in 1645 when besieged
by the Narragansetts
he was relieved by
the bravery of
Lieutenant Thomas Leffingwell
----------
Erected by the Colonial Dames
1898
(See Burpee's History of Connecticut, Vol. II, p.597)

Leffingwell built and operated the Leffingwell Inn, a "house of public entertainment" sometime shortly after 1700 (See Trilogy, pp. 177-178). The house still stands at 348 WashingtonStreet, and has been proclaimed the oldest in Norwich. In fact, George Washington, on April 8, 1776, "partook of the Hospitalities of Leffingwell Inn". In additon to the Inn, Thomas hadpaper and fulling mills, and a store that sold "lamb's gloves, sattin, cambricks and stuff shose; lute strings, palongs and humhums".
It was noted in Trilogy that the Leffingwell house may have been built onto the old Backus residence; local historians say the house was built by Stephen Backus. 
Leffingwell, Thomas (I80)
 
198 ||||Gideon was a carpenter by trade. As he and his wfie were Huguenots, and persecution was high in France and Germany, they fled to Holland. The couple and their four sons are listed on thesecond passenger list of the ship "De Permerlander Kerck". There were 29 passengers aboard when the ship landed in New Holland on 12 October 1662.

On April 20, 1671 he was appointed Constable of Staten Island, and on February 14, 1674 he was appointed Magistrate. 
Merlet, Gedeon La Plante (I1821)
 
199 ||||He appeared on the list of settlers of Salem, Massachusetts in 1646. His occupation has been listed as both salt-maker and bricklayer. He and his wife were admitted to communion in theFirst Church of Salem on May 3, 1646. Hebert, Robert (I1900)
 
200 ||||He came to Plymouth aboard the Anne in July 1623. Tracy, Stephen (I1773)
