NATHANIEL PHELPS, b. England about 1627, emigrated to New England with his father, settling in Dorchester, Mass., wikth his father, removing to Windsor, Ct., in 1635-6, where he m. Elizabeth Copley, 17th Sept., 1650 She was an English lady. Says the Hon. James H. Phelps of Townshend, Vt., a descendant of this family: "A descendant of the family of Elizabeth Copley, in England was the celebrated artist, John Cop ley, father of Lord Lyndhurst, who on the 30th of April, 1827: became Lord Chancellor of England." Lord Lyndhurst appears to have no knowledge of this connection, as may be seen from his letter herewith attached. As this connection must be traced back over two hundred years, there is no reason to doubt the same. Mrs. Phelps died in Northampton, Mass., 6th Dec., 1712, some ten years after her husband. Her will probated in Northampton, Vol. 11, 1678-1716. Reference is made to her sons Nathaniel and William Phelps, who are to have the land her husband left her, to be divided equally between them. Her homestead also to be divided between them, Nathaniel to have the side he lives in, and William the other side. To Abigal 50 pounds; to the children of Matthew and Mary Closson 5 pound each; to her son-in-law, Matthew Closson, 10 shillings; to Thomas Copley 3 pounds; to Samuel and John Lankton 20 shillings each. Mr. Phelps resided on the Orton place opposite his father's homestead, which he purchased of his brother Samuel. Here he resided up to 1656-7, when he removed with part of his family to Northampton, Mass., one of its first settlers. Says Stiles: " He was a pious man of good intellect, and of a sound, discriminating judgment-was one of the first deacons of the N. Church. His homestead was occupied by him for 43 years, and by his descendants until 1835. " His homestead comprised the land which was over fifty years ago occupied by Miss Margaret Dwight's school, and which at a later date was the College Institute of J. J. Dudley, Esq., and which is now Shady Lawn. The old homestead stood a few rods north of that edifice. (Clark's Northampton Antiquity) - Although Mr. Phelps, removed to Northampton in 1656-7, we find him paying slip rent in Windsor 4th Jan., 1659. Feb. 8th, 1679, Dea. Nathaniel Phelps, with his sons Nathaniel Jr. and William, took the oath of allegiance before Worshipful Maj. Pynchon. May 11th, 1681, he was made a freeman by the General Court at Boston. He died in Norhtamption May 27th, 1702, aged 75 years, honored and respected. NATHANIEL PHELPS, bp. 6 March 1624/5 at Crewkerne, d. 27 May 1702 at Northampton, Mass.;[1] m. on 17 September 1650 at Windsor ELIZABETH COPLEY,[2] widow, d. 6 December 1719 at Northampton.[3] Nathaniel Phelps was one of the original settlers of Northampton and on 18 March 1657/58 was one of signatories on a petition to the General Court requesting (1) a settled minister, and (2) help in reducing drunkenness.[4] On 6 January 1658/9 he gave three acres of land for the use of the ministry[5] and on 18 April 1661 signed the covenant of the church[6] and was one of the first deacons.[7] In 1663 he was listed as owner of Home Lot 4, Meadowland 29.[8] On 27 March 1676 the "wife of Nathaniel Phelps" was among 23 persons presented at the court in Northampton for "wearing silk in a flaunting manner and for long hair and other extravagance contrary to honest and sober order, and demeanor not becoming a wilderness state, at least the profession for Christianity and religion."[9] On 9 February 1679 Deacon Nathaniel, with sons Nathaniel and William, took the oath of allegiance before Worshipful Major Pynchon.[10] On 11 February 1679/80 he was sworn in as tithing-man.[11] On 11 May 1681 he was sworn in as freeman by the General Court in Boston.[12] On the 21 May 1688 there was a town resolution "to Rectifie and Record that Highway that Goeth up to Mr. Stoddard's house: Between Deacon Phelps & goodman miller lots."[13] In the town record he is listed as having donated five pounds of flax for the support of Harvard College.[14] Elizabeth (Copley) Phelps's will, according to Stiles, divided "house and lands equally between her sons Nathaniel and William; to her dau. Abigail 30; to children of Matthew and Mary Clossen 5 each, to her son-in-law, Matthew Closson, 10s; to Thomas Copley 3, to Samuel and John Lankton 30s each."[15] 1 Myrtle Stevens Hyde, "The English Origin of William Phelps," citing James Buckman, comp., "Northampton Deaths," in Forbes Library, Northampton, 13. For William see PHELPS I in these Notes. 2 Henry R. Stiles, The History and Genealogies of Ancient Windsor (Hartford, Conn.: Press of the Case, Lockwood and Brainard, 1892), 565; Register 64 (1910), 248 and fn.

In his will, dated 1719, Nathaniel directed his sons Samuel and Nathaniel to help their brother Timothy to build a house if he settled in the town. The will also mentions daughters Lydia, Abigail, Sarah, Grace, and Elizabeth. [Stiles, Windsor, p 565]
