[713] BIRTH: Mary and Joseph are twins. Dates of birth are baptismal dates.

[798] Joseph Phelps b. Windsor, Ct., 20 Aug., 1667, m. 1st Mary Collier, daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth (Sanford) Collier, she b. Hartford, d. Simsbury, 13th March, 1697.

He m. 3rd Mary Case, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Case, she b. Simsbury, 1669, died there 10th Sept, 1757. She was a widow. Her will dated 13th Aug. 1751, gives to her daughter Keziah, "Two suits of my clothes, viz.: My silk crape gown and my drugget gown and the petticoats that I used to wear with them, if not I give them to her daughter that tended her in her sickness, viz., daughter Lucy, and I give to her, my said daughter Keziah, or to her daughter Lucy as above, my quilted coat. All the rest of my Estate I do give and devise to my son David, and to my daughter Elizabeth, to be equally divided between them." Mr. Phelps does not refer to Keziah in his will, which probably indicates that she was a dau. of his wife Mary by her former husband. Mr. Phelps settled in Simsbury and was one of its most influential citizens. He held the office of Justice of the Peace for many years and was elected to the General Assembly from 1709-1727, twenty-eight times; during this time the Legislature held two sessions each year. The following is a copy of Mr. Phelps' will from Hartford, Conn., Probate: In the name of God, Amen!

[2697] According to a fictionalized account, "Falls the Shadow", Eleanor was betrothed to William Marshall at a very young age for political and monetary reasons. As most all royal marriages occured in this way, it was perfectly normal. Her marriage to William ended when she was only 15 at her husbands death. She was then convinced by a very close caretaker to take the oath of fidelity from the Pope. This gave her many of the vows of a nun. She never fit well into this as she was a very beautiful blond haired women who enjoyed the company of men. Though she religiously upheld her vows, she fell hopelessly in love with Simon de Monfert after reaching the age of adulthood. They married secretly with the forced assistance of her brother, King Henry. Simon then convinced the Pope with monetary gifts to rescind his wife's vow of Abstinence. This was to say a very scandalous set of circumstances. Simon de Montfert was well below Eleanor's social status to add to boot. This is a love conquers all theme in the novel "Falls the Shadow."
