Mary's father James Ensign, was from Rye, Sussex, England, was the second of your ancestors to make the voyage to New England around 1634. James was at Cambridge Massachusetts in 1634, a freeman in 1635, moved to Hartford in 1639, was a constable in 1649 and 1662, a chimney viewer in 1655 and a townsman in 1656. His name appears on Hartford's Founders Monument. He was the founding member of 1st Congregational Church, Hartford, and member of 2nd Congregational Church in 1670. His will dated November 23, 1670, with an inventory taken December 23, 1670, valued at 729.2 pounds.
Mary's 3rd Great-grandparents were Nicholas Tufton and Margaret Hever. Margaret was the daughter and heir of John Hever of Cranbrook, Kent, England. John Hever was a descendant of the Hevers of Kent, the founders of Hever Castle. Walter de Hever, was the first owner of Hever Castle. William de Hever, Sheriff in the reign of Edward I, became owner of Hever Castle in 1270, the year the Gatehouse was constructed. Ownership then passed to Thomas de Hever in 1300, William de Hever in 1340, and in 1360 to Joan de Hever, who married Sir Reginald de Cobham. Passing through eight more proprietors, in 1505 Hever Castle became the home of Sir Thomas Bullen, whose daughter Anne Boleyn was the second wife of Henry VIII. Upon the death of Sir Thomas Bullen, Hever Castle reverted to the Crown, and Henry granted ownership to his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, as part of the divorce settlement in 1540. Hever Castle was magnificently restored by William Waldorf Astor, 1st Viscount Astor of Hever, a double moat, gardens and a Tudor Village surround Hever Castle today.
