    Notes 


    • Joseph Purdy, son of Francis Purdy and Mary Brundage, was born about 1653 and died Oct 29 1709. His father died when he was five years of age and he was reared in the home of his stepfather, John Hoyt, in Rye, New York. He was prominent in Westchester County, New York, which he represented in the Colonial Legislature in 1693 and again from 1702 to 1709. He also served as Justice of the Peace and Supervisor of the town of Rye and in 1677 he was appointed surveyor by the Crown. He purchased from his father-in-law, Richard Ogden, his house and eight acres of land "on the highway that goeth to the mill." The house stood on a knoll just south of the road to Milton. The home was one of comfort and hospitality. In 1701 he bought lands in Northcastle, where some of his descendants settled. In 1697 he, with four others, was appointed "to see to building a house of worship, and the finding of a minister." He was devoted to the interests of the Episcopal Church until his death. His will was probated on Oct. 5?, 1709 and is in the New York Historical Society Collection. Married Elizabeth Ogden.
