Jachin Bouton was born in Norwalk, CT. He married Mary White in abt 1715 in Norwalk, CT. In the will of Joseph Bouton, recorded at Fairfield, and bearing date Dec 20, 1746, he bequeaths portions to his daughters whome he designates as Sarah Hanford and Dinah Benedict, and closes by ordering the remainder of his estate to be equally divided among his four children, naming Jachin and John as his two sons. Jachin shows as having been married twice. It is possible that he married Mary Atwater abt 1741. By these dates, Martha, Esther, and Moses were from this second marriage. Very little information is available for Mary White.

Bouton-Boughton family; descendants of John Bouton, a native of France, who embarked from Gravesend, England and landed at Boston in December 1635 and settled at Norwalk, Connecticut.
John Bouton, (grandfather). The records of the town show that he gave lands to his sons, John and Matthew, and left an estate which continued in the possession of his descendants over two hundred years. His first wife was Joan Turney, who died soon after his settlement in Norwalk. He married there, January 1, 656, Abigail Marvin, daughter of Matthew Marvin, who came from London, England. She was born about 1640, at Hartford, and died at Norwalk about 672. He married (third) Mrs. Mary Stevenson, widow of John Stevenson, who was killed in a fight with the Indians near Norwalk. The children of John Bouton by his first wife were: Richard and Bridget. The second wife was the mother of John, Matthew, Rachel, Abigail, and Mary. The third wife bore him Joseph, Thomas, Elizabeth and Richard.
(II) Joseph, fourth son of John Bouton and eldest child of his third wife, was born about 1674, in Norwalk. He resided in or near that town. His will in the probate records of Fairfield county gives various tracts of land in the Bouton meadows and divides the residue of his estate between his four children. He married Mary Stevenson and resided in Norwalk. Their children were: Sarah, Dinah, Jachin and John.
(III) Jachin, eldest son and third child of Joseph and Mary (Stevenson) Bouton, was a resident of Norwalk, and appears frequently in the records of that town. On December 14, 1726, he was chosen on of the five listers of the town and again in 1730 was chosen to the same office. On March 29, 1732, he bought land of Thomas Corsicar, and in 1733 was a grand juror of the town. On December 20, 1737, three acres of land were meted out to him in Roton. Ten days later he bought six acres on the west side of the Norwalk river, adjoining Joseph Bouton's land, for thirty-seven pounds. In February following he bought of Daniel Betta two acres for eleven pounds and fifteen shillings. In the same year he held lot eighty-seven, and on May 16 of that year he bought of Sarah Crampton, land situated north of the highway for one hundred pounds. He bought land of Oliver Arnold, October 16, 1742, and on December 15, 1747, he sold his undivided rights in certain lands to John Bouton. On March 2, 1796, he quit-claimed twelve acres of land in the parish of Kin to Daniel Weed. It is probable that he was a farmer as his cattle mark is recorded in 1725, and it is evident that he dealt quite extensively in lands. He was a substantial citizen. He is said to have been married twice. His children were: Ebenezer, Sarah, Joseph, Esaias, Mary, Debbe, Patty, Esther, and Moses.
Jakin (or Jachin) Bouton (son of Joseph and Mary Bouton, grandson of John Bouton, 1st), b. Norwalk, about 1700. He is said to have married twice and had a large family of children. A part of them retained the primitive method of spelling their name - Bouton - while the others adopted the Boughton orthography. The Norwalk Records have the following, which is copied from the will of Esaias Bouton:
"For the consideration of the filial duty I have and do bear my honored father, Jachin Bouton, of Norwalk, Conn., I do freely give and grant to him the northerly half part of the dwelling house he now dwells in on Flax Hill. Dated Oct. 31, 1765.
