William Upjohn, born June 10, 1770 in Shaftesbury, England, was a surveyor, land agent, appraiser of timber, and Methodist lay preacher at St. Rumbold's Church in Shaston. In 1796, he married Mary Standard, and from their union would come nine girls and three boys. In the mid 1820s, with England in the midst of an economic depression, William sent two of his sons to American to explore the possibility of moving there. They stayed two years, then one of the sons -- Uriah -- returned to recommend that the family immigrate. Arriving in New York, William and his sons William and Uriah immediately set out to examine farm and mill properties in upper New York State. The family spent the winter of 1830-31 in Hyde Park, then moved to the town of Greenbush near Albany. They eventually settled in Pittsford, a suburb of Rochester.
