Christopher VAUGHAN 1686 - Bio
Christopher Vaughan, fourth child of George Vaughan (2), born in Newport, Rhode Island, April 29, 1686. He was admitted a freeman 1707, and settled in East Greenwich, on the land granted to his father. He died there October 11, 1751, and his will was proved August 29, 1752. It mentions a loom, showing that Christopher was probably a weaver as well as a planter.

His estate was valued at two thousand, six hundred and forty-eight pounds. He married, June 26, 1709, Deborah Nichols, born February 17, 1688, daughter of Thomas and Mercy (Reynolds) Nichols.
