Alling Ball

M, #14869, d. 21 September 1689
     Alling Ball was the son of Alling Ball.1 Alling Ball married Dorothy (????) circa 1646. Alling Ball died on 21 September 1689 at East Haven, New Haven Co., CT; "Allin Ball son of Allin Ball died at Newhaven the 21 of Septr 1689."2,3
     The Fugills returned to England in 1646, and Alling Ball was excused for tardiness on a training day because he was "with his sister Fugill upon her departure". Now if Alling Ball's wife had been Thomas Fugill's sister, that would have made Fugill his brother-in-law and the record would certainly have read that he had been with his brother Fugill, it is most likely that Thomas Fugill's wife was a blood sister of Alling Ball.4 Alling Ball first appeared in New Haven records in 1643.5

Dorothy (????)1

F, #14870, d. 22 February 1689/90
     Dorothy (????) married Alling Ball, son of Alling Ball, circa 1646. Dorothy (????) died on 22 February 1689/90 at New Haven, New Haven Co., CT.2,3
     Comment by DGB: Donald Lines Jacobus wrote the following in "Notes on the Ball Family of New Haven" in "The American Genealogist" Vol. 10, pp. 209-210:
     It was stated quite definitely in "A History of the Ball Family", pages 20-21, that Alling Ball married Dorothy Fugill, sister of Thomas Fugill, the first Secretary of New Haven Colony. It is much more likely that Thomas Fugill married one of those two unnamed sisters of Alling Ball. Evidence for the relationship is found in Records of the Colony of New Haven (vol. 1, p. 270). the Fugills returned to England in 1646, and Alling Ball was excused for tardiness on a training day because he was "w'h his sister Fugill vpon her depture". Now if Ball's wife had been Fugill's sister, that would have made Fugill his brother-in-law, but Fugill's wife would not have been related to him except very indirectly, and the record would certainly have read that he had been with his brother Fugill. Since the record actually does read, his sister Fugill, and since Mrs. Fugill was less important and less likely to be mentioned than her husband, we submit that Mrs. Fugill was the blood sister of Alling Ball, and that it was really she (rather than her husband) whom Ball attended on their departure.
     The maiden name of Dorothy, wife of Alling Ball Sr., is unknown. It is probable that either his own sister, or (less likely) his wife's sister, was the wife of Thomas Fugill. End of comment.

     The family legend is that five Ball brothers came to Portneuf, Quebec from Ireland. While only three brothers are found living together in the Bourglouis portion of the county of Portneuf, Quebec, in 1851, it is clear that the family arrived at least as early as July 1846 when Abraham married in Quebec City, so other family members could have chosen another location in which to settle during those early years in Canada.
     However, it is also possible that the family legend intended to refer to only three Ball brothers and the two Williamson siblings: Susanna (who married Abraham Ball) and her brother Samuel who was living with the three Ball brothers at the time of the 1851 census. All five of these people came from Ireland, perhaps together.1
