Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
nice family setting?:The Saltonstall Family (c 1636-37) in Tate Britain. http://www.kipar.org/period-galleries/paintings... The Saltonstall family were prominent under Queen Eliza 1 : Sir Richard Saltonstall (Lord Mayor 1597-8). His son, Sir Thomas, was the well-known parliamentary commander in the Civil War http://www.tudorplace.com.ar/Documents/aldermen...Sir Samuel Saltonstall, son of a Lord Mayor of London. He it was who bore the costs of printing Smith's Sea Grammar.....shown are the arms for his blazer ..................Sir Samuel's first cousin, Sir Richard Saltonstall(1610-1694), founded the Massachusetts branch of the family which continues to this day.....http://www.jamestowne.org/history/johns.htmSir Richard after his problems with Powers to be, lived off Coleman street in/on Swanne alley.[if that be near the Covent garden market could explain her Ladyships' connection, not wanting to live a life in the wilds of Massachusetts ?.]
The Richard Saltostall that founded the American Branch was the father of the Richard Saltonstall cited by Vicente.See: http://www.famousamericans.net/sirrichardsalton...
After looking up on the Saltonstall family history, the most likely candidate for the "terrible storm" story is not the first (+1630) or second wife of Sir Richard (+1640)(from the picture), but the THIRD wife, Martha Cammock, who became his widow in 1661. She would certainly be called a person of quality. There were two daughters Saltonstall but they were married (and not be called Lady Saltonstall) and the young Sir Richard lived in America so would not have a wife or children in London at the time.
I'am an 18 year old male of the Saltonstall family in Sevierville Tennessee if you have any information about the originality of the Saltonstall family i would greatly appreciate it if you e-mailed me.
Sincerely yours, Andrew Saltonstall

I am from Sevierville Tennessee originally and was wandering if there was any correlation between the Saltonstall family in MA and the one here in TN. Any info is greatly appreciated.
