On April 10, 1635, the vessel "Planter" left England, carrying a number of Sudbury, England people to New England. Among the passengers were the family named Haffield. Richard, 54, currier; wife Martha, 42; Mary, 18; Sarah, 14; Martha, 8; Rachel, 6 and Ruth, 3. The Minister of Sudbury, England & the Mayor of the Town certified their "conformitie to the orders & discipline of the Church of England".

Martha, daughter of Richard Haffield and his second wife Martha, probably grew up in Ipswich. She married Richard Coy, who was born in England about 1625 and came to New England with his brother in 1638 at the age of 13. One of their sons, Caleb, born August 15, 1666, was killed by Indians at Brookfield at the beginning of King Phillip's War. Her husband Richard Coy also died while fighting in King Phillip's War. He was killed by Indians near Brookfield during the famous Swamp Fight on August 2, 1675 and is buried, along with the others who fell there, near Wickabog Pond in West Brookfield.

Martha fled to Boston with her remaining children, and probably remarried there. The date of her death or the location are not known.


Martha married Richard Coy, son of Richard Coy and Lucy Ann "Luciann" Lenten. (Richard Coy was born about 1625 in Boston, Lincolnshire County, England and died on 2 Aug 1675 in Brookfield, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA.)
