Angell Husted, son of Robert Husted and Elizabeth (…), was born say 1624.1 He died at Greenwich, Connecticut, between 5 and 19 April 1706, the dates of his will and inventory.2

Angell had an unknown first wife, married by before 1650;1,3 he married (2), as her 2nd husband, Rebecca (…), whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), after 1673.1,4

Remington shows that Mead's assignment of the children's birthdates is somewhat arbitrary and gives evidence for making some prudent adjustments, but does not provide specific dates based on that evidence. The listing of children further below reflects the adjustments suggested by those Greenwich deeds. For completeness, Mead's initial assignments are given here;
Rebecca     abt 1645*
Jonathan     abt 1647
David     abt 1649
Joseph     abt 1652
Angell     abt 1654
Elizabeth     abt 1656
Moses     abt 1659
John     abt 1662
Samuel     abt 1665

Remington explains that while Angell's will specified "son-in-law," that was interpreted by earlier writers to mean what it does in present day terms, but actually meant step-son, making Jonathan Reynolds, the son of his second wife, and not the husband of a non-existant "daughter" Rebecca.5,6

Angell left a will dated 5 April 1706, leaving to
his wife (Unnamed) "shee be paid what is her due from my Estate as may appear due to her"
children Jonathan, Joseph, Angel, and Elizabeth "Bawldin" 1 shilling each "having formerly given unto each of them their portion"
to son Moses, five shillings as the whole of his portion with what I have don for him"
respecting what Estate may be remaining after my decease the above written being accomplished. . the remainder of my movables be given. . . to sons John and Samuell
Executors: son Samuell & son-in-law Jonathan Reynolds

On 19 Apr 1706, "Rebecka Husted widow made oth to the truth of the above Inventory befo Samll Peck Justic of the peace in Greenwich."2,7
