Rare Historic Ct/new London Colony 1600s Founding Family House Folk Art Sampler- For Sale

Rare Historic Ct/new London Colony 1600s Founding Family House Folk Art Sampler-

This spectacular,and important Connecticut schoolgirl sampler descended in the historic STARK family;whose settling immigrant to America, Aaron Stark, was a kind of folklore legend in the early 1600s as part of the Connecticut/New London Colony....filling the early Colony records with unusual stories and memorable provenance! In addition to museum worthy family history and provenance, the folk art house sampler is a prototype of the very rare and important NORWICH BUILDING GROUP; the identifiable elements of thiis significant group usually included a side view 2 story house, tulip motifs, folky hearts, and a distinctive 8-petal pinwheel flower motif(see Hubers book pgs 84+85).
Founding Stark family ancestor Aaron Stark came to America from Scotland in the 1620s and in 1627 joined with Rev. Joseph Hooker settling the Connecticut Colony. He soon joined forces with Captain John Mason and was a significant fighter in the War waged against the Pequot Indians to safeguard the new Connecticut/New London Colony. He was quite the historic rebel rouser and character. In 1639 he was ordered whipped and BRANDED WITH AN "R" ON HIS CHEEK!!! This was to punish him and let the others in the Colony knbow he was a "RAVISHER" of women and to beware. Because of his transgressions (and oh there were others I care not to mention) he had to live under the command of his military Captain John Mason at FORT SAYBROOK for 12 years!!! Finally on the other side of his transgressions and despite the "R" branded on his cheek, he married a woman in 1853 by the name of Sarah and eventually acquired a great deal of property in New london County. The spectacular sampler worked by his great great granddaughter features a fabulous house with wrought iron fences and pencil pines, stylized tulip flowers, and the 8 petaled pinwheel flowers distinctive of this rare and important group. The large and visual striking folk art sampler (conserved and appx 16x20) is in very fine condition and signed "Emily Stark's Sampler Made in The 11th Year of Her Age August 16th 1830". Emily was the daughter of Jonathan Stark and Betsey Reed of New London County. The important provenance and family history, combined with it being from suchan important sampler school group,makes this a museum worthy New England rarity for the advanced collector or historian.
