      Text: William Billing son of William Billing of Taunton, disposed of his lands there, and came to New England about the middle of the seventeenth century. He is said to have been one of the original proprietors of Lancaster in Massachusetts, in 1654, but in 1658, the fifth of February, we find him at Dorchester on which day he married Mary . The record of the marriage not giving her surname, stands thus: "William Billing was married unto Mary by Mayor Atharton 5; 2; 57. " In the same year, he joined the company of William Cheeseborough at Stonington, Connecticut, where he became one of the largest landed proprietors in that and neighbouring towns. He died on the sixteenth of March, 1713, and his widow in 1718. His will, dated October 13, 1712, was proved on the fourteenth of April following. It is a curious specimen of orthography, in which the name is spelt Billinges, not written by the testator, but signed by him without the final s. He bequeaths to his wife all his household furniture forever, and one third part of his real estate during her life. To his son William he gives his real estate in Preston and other places. To all his children and grandchildren he makes bequests and appoints his son Ebenczer executor and makes him residuary legatee. His children the first five of whom were baptized at Stonington on the same day, viz.: September I, 1672
