Walter PALMER, the progenitor of the Stonington, CT PALMERs, came to New England in 1628 or 29.  Abraham PALMER, a merchant of London England was thought to be his brother.  Walter was one of the first citizens of Charlestown, Massachusetts.  He continued to reside there until 1643 when he removed to Rehoboth.  Walter moved to Stonington, CT in 1653.  He is one of its four founders. 

Walter married (2) Rebecca SHORT in 1633.  By his unknown first wife he had Grace, William, John, Jonah, and Elizabeth. Walter and Rebecca had Hannah, Elihu, Nehemiah, Moses, Benjamin, Gershom, and Rebecca.  

One of the best books about Walter and his descendants is "Walter Palmer of Charlestown, Rehoboth, Massachusetts and Stonington, CT" Compiled, Edited, Typed and Parly Researched by Doris Palmer Buys.  "Groups of Palmer Families" by Leavitt and "Palmer Families In America" by Horace Wilbur Palmer and others contain valuable information about Walter's descendants and a few others.
