I know very little about Joseph, having only recently begun to attempt to take the PURDY line back a little further in time.
From what I have found to date, Joseph born 1653, was the third son of Francis PURDY and Mary BRUNDAGE, settlers from England, possibly from Suffolk England, arriving before 1644. All of the five known children were born in Fairfield county, Connecticut. Francis died unexpectedly 4 Oct 1658 when Joseph was only 5 years old. His widow, Mary, married very shortly thereafter to John Hoyt; no further children known.
Joseph apparently moved to the region of Rye New York in 1677, selling several pieces of his Fairfield Connecticut property in 1678. Rye was a patented township in about 1686. The map shows Rye abuts the Connecticut border with New York.
Joseph PURDY married in 1680 to Elizabeth OGDEN, in Rye New York. Elizabeth's parents may be John OGDEN & Judith BUDD, but this has yet to be confirmed. Note there are conflicting lists of children for Joseph and Elizabeth with no agreed-on order of birth.
The following group of 11 children, not all with birth dates, nor listed in valid birth order [most birthdates are estimates only], were apparently all born in Rye, Westchester, NY:
- Elizabeth, b. est 1681
- Samuel, b. est 1682
- Joseph jr, b. 1683, d. 15 Jun 1777 White Plains, Westchester NY
- John, b. est 1685
- David, ancestor, b. 1687, d. Oct 1766, Ulster Co., NY; m. est 1719 to _____ RUTTENBERG in Newburgh NY; only one son known [ancestor, Gilbert PURDY, sr.]
- Jude [girl], b. est 1689
- Jonathan, b. 1693, d. 1772
- Mary, est 1695
- Francis, b. 1697, d. 1760
- Daniel, b. est 1699
- Phebe, b. est 1701, d. 1761
