The Bannings of Connecticut

John Banning (1678 - 1759) married Sarah Tiffany about 1703 and Mary Daniels Roland about 1751. They lived in Lyme, Connecticut. Their children include Elizabeth Banning (1705 - April 26, 1738) who married John Brockway on March 1, 1726 or 27. A second daughter, name unknown, was born about 1707 and died about 1730. John Banning (1712 - 1755) married Margaret De Wolfe on July 15, 1734 and Jeremine Marvin on May 22, 1744. John and Margaret had Benjamin (1740 - ? ). Jeremine and John had William (November 5, 1747 - ? ), Ebenesor (February 6, 1745 - ? ), Joseph (August 6, 1748 - ? ), Margaret (August 6, 1750 - ? ), and Sarah (April 20, 1753 - ? ). Information relating to the two Johns may be confused.

Samuel Banning (1713 - April 22, 1803) married a Hannah about 1738 and Eleanor Barnes about 1768. One source lists his date of death as 1760. He may have married Lydia Scoel, and their children included David, Samuel (1710 - 1800), Abner, and perhaps Elizabeth (1705 - April 26, 1738).[i]Note that Samuel’s birth date and the birth date of the children are inconsistent. Mary Banning (1718 - March 4, 1742 or 43) married John Wood and George Reed.
