CONNECTICUT HISTORY:

In 1631, Governor Winslow, of Plymouth, appears to have had his attention drawn to the settlement of Connecticut, and he made a journey to Connecticut soon after, and discovered Connecticut River. In 1632, some of the people of New Plymouth were in Connecticut, and soon after determined to erect a trading-house at Windsor, as an advantage to commencing the future colony. The Indian name of the River was Quonehtacut, (long river) –from this the Colony took its name.

In 1634, and for many years after, all the settlers for New England landed in the colony of New Plymouth, or Massachusetts, and emigrated from thence to Connecticut. For several years after 1635, there were no settlements by the English in the Colony, except in the towns of Windsor, Hartford and Wethersfield, and a few at Saybrook.

In the spring of 1636 the emigration began again in companies from Massachusetts to Connecticut, and sent their provisions by water. By September 1636 the three towns upon the River [Windsor, Hartford and Wethersfield] were permanently settled by many inhabitants. All emigrants to Connecticut, until the settlement of New Haven, came first to Hartford, and afterwards settled other towns, as they did Stratford, Fairfield, Norwalk, etc.

Here were three towns located in the wilderness, with a large number of inhabitants, without any law to govern them, either civil, military, or criminal; and the principles and much less the practice and forms of an independent government, in a great measure unknown to men who had been educated under the Crown of England and had learned only to obey. The first year (1635) no courts were organized, not even a town organization formed, and much less any thing like a General Court to enact laws and punish offences. The officers of the several churches governed their own members according to the rules and discipline of the church; and as no other law existed in the Colony, all offenders, if any were tried before 1636, must have been tried by the Mosaic law, by the churches. But as the law of Moses made no provision to punish a white man for selling a gun to an Indian—it therefore became necessary that some civil body of men should be so organized as to enact such laws as would prevent or punish offences not provided for in the Bible. The placing of firearms in the possession of the Indians was considered one of the most culpable offences in the Colony, which endangered not only the property but the safety and lives of the English settlers. At this time it was discovered that Henry Stiles had traded a gun with the Indians for corn. Therefore on the 26th day of April, 1636, a court was organized by five of the best men in the Colony – whether they constituted themselves a court or were elected by the people, the record gives no account. The Court consisted of Roger Ludlow, as chairman, and Mr. Westwood, John Steel, Andrew Ward, and William Phelps, as his
associates. The first act of the Court was to try Stiles for the offence. He was found guilty, and ordered by the Court to regain the gun from the Indians in a fair and legal way, or the Court should take the case into further
consideration. The Court then enacted a law, that from henceforth no one within the jurisdiction of the Court should trade with the Indians any piece or pistol, gun or shot, or powder, under such penalty as the Court should see meet
to inflict. – This was the first Court, the first Trial, and the first Law ever enacted or had in Connecticut.

The General Court soon discovered the propriety of adding a House of Representatives to the first court formed in 1636, particularly upon great occasions. Therefore, in May 1637, the several towns were represented at the
General Court by the name of Committee, by three from each town – and took their seats with the magistrates who had previously constituted the Court. The object at this time was whether they should declare war against the most
warlike and powerful tribe of Indians in New England. The future safety of property and life in the Colony depended upon the result. The Pequotts had stolen not only the property of the English, and murdered some of the
inhabitants, but had abducted from Wethersfield two young ladies, and carried them among the Indians by force.

The General Court took cognizance of divisions in churches – of all criminal offences – of all civil matters – the appointment and confirmation of all officers in the jurisdiction – declared war – regulated commerce – formed and
governed the militia; -- indeed every thing in the Colony came under their supervision. They ordered that no young unmarried man, unless a public officer, or he kept a servant, should keep house alone, except by license of the town, under a penalty of twenty shillings per week; and that no head of a family should entertain such young man under a like penalty, without liberty of the town. The object of this law probably was, to compel early marriages, to aid in settling the colony, and to prevent their keeping bad company.

As early as 1640 the General Court intended that the inhabitants should measure their apparel by the length of their purses – the Court being the judges. The constable in each town was ordered to take notice of all persons, and if he judged any persons exceeded their rank and condition in life, in their attire, to warn them to appear before the Particular Court to answer for the offence. Most of the penalties attached to the criminal laws, were accompanied with flogging and pillory; so much so that a law was enacted in 1643, which made it imperative upon all the towns on Connecticut River to appoint a whipper to do execution upon offenders. The Puritans appear to have punished offenders by whipping, with the same object that a parent corrects his children, only to improve their habits,
morals and manners, and not to disgrace them, unless the offence committed was a great immorality and violation of law. Men who had been publicly whipped, are found afterwards holding places of honor in the colony.

As Massachusetts and Plymouth were settled a few years earlier than Connecticut, and had become somewhat organized as a government, many of their laws were copied into the code of laws enacted by Connecticut. Labor and dress were regulated by law in those colonies before it was in this. Their laws upon these subjects were much more severe than in this jurisdiction. They had a law that ladies dresses should be made so long as to cover their shoe buckles. They prohibited short sleeves, and ordered the sleeves to be lengthened to cover the arms to the wrists. They forbid by law, immoderate great breeches, knots of ribbon, broad shoulder bands, silk roses, double ruffs and cuffs. Evan as late as 1653, John Fairbanks was solemnly tried for wearing great boots. He probably shewed that he was afflicted with corns on his toes, and therefore he could not comfortably wear small ones, as he was acquitted on trial. The colonies were poor, and it appears the object of the law was to prevent all kinds of extravagance, and to compel the inhabitants to govern their living, strictly by their means.

As there were no printing presses in the colony or country in the early settlement of Connecticut, the laws enacted at each session of the General Court were sent to the constables at each town and read by them at public meetings to the people. This inconvenient practice was continued in the Colony nearly forty years, until 1672. This year all the laws in force were prepared and sent to Cambridge to be printed, and bound with blank paper interspersed in
the book, to enter the laws which should be afterwards enacted. The book is now a curiosity of ancient days. Its introduction to the public is vastly better fitted for Watt’s Psalms, than a code of laws. After the book was printed, the General Assembly ordered that every family in the Colony should have a law book. The New Haven Colony procured a code of laws to be printed for that Colony, of about 100 pages, entitled, “New Haven’s Settling in New England, and some Laws for Government; published for the use of that Colony.” This early and first volume of laws was printed in London, for the New Haven Colony. I know of only two copies extant of the edition of 500 that were printed.

Chimney Viewers:
As the office of Chimney Viewer is attached to the names of some of the first settlers, I take the liberty of explaining the cause. Immediately after the organization of the town of Hartford as a town, or rather as a company of land holders – a law was enacted that all chimneys should be cleansed by the owner once in a month, upon a penalty provided by law. Therefore that the law should be strictly obeyed and carried out by the inhabitants, for several years a committee of respectable men, (for no others held offices at that day) were appointed to see that all house-holders fully obeyed the law. It was also a law that each house-holder should provide a ladder for his house, where there was not a tree standing by his house which reached within two feet of the top of the chimney. This law also came within the duties of the viewers of chimneys. At the time these laws were in force, men were selected to fill every office, high or low, with a single eye to the fact, that men who held the offices should be of such standing in society, as the men should honor their offices, and not the offices the holders of them. To effect this object you
find men who had filled a seat at the General Court, the next year filling the office of hayward or chimney viewer. It was this practice of our worthy ancestors, which caused an officer, either civil or military, who held any place of power, to hold on to his titles with a tenacity, that living or dead, he never lost them. You find them now upon ancient tomb-stones of more than 200 years standing, and upon the Colony, State and Town Records as far back as
1637. Even a sergeant or corporal never lost his title – they were entombed and recorded. These days existed before the spoils-men were known in the land of steady habits, when the love of country was the primary object of all, and when political partizans were unknown in the Colony or country – when leading men were honest – when principles were of more importance to our country than party.

Bingham, Thomas, is first found at Norwich as a proprietor in 1660, after which he married, and had eleven children. The name yet remains in New London county. Thomas, of Windham, ’97.

[Cogswell]. Davenport, Rev. John, of Stamford, was the only son of Rev. John Davenport,one of the founders of New Haven. Rev. John, of Stamford, had a daughter, Sarah, who married Rev. Eleazer Wheelock, D.D. of Lebanon. Dr. Wheelock was known as the “founder of Moor’s Charity School for Christianizing the Indians.” Sarah married Rev. Mr. Maltby, of New Haven, by whom she had a son and two daughters; the son became a minister, and settled in Bermuda in the West Indies, and afterwards settled in Charleston, S.C.; one of the daughters died young, the other married Doct. Betts, of Norwalk, Conn. After the death of Mr. Maltby, she married Dr. Wheelock, while a widow, and by her 2d marriage had three children, viz. Theodora, Ruth and Ralph. Theodora married Alexander Phelps, Esq., of Hebron, who afterwards removed to Oxford in New Hampshire;
Ruth married Rev. William Patten; Ralph was also a clergyman, and an assistant of his father in the ministry – and died without children. Ruth was born Mar. 4, 1740. Rev. James Davenport was a brother of Sarah Wheelock. James had a son, John Davenport, who was a minister; Hon. Abraham Davenport, of Stamford, was also a son of John, and brother of James and Sarah. A daughter of Hon Abraham, married Dr. James Cogswell, a son of Rev. Dr. COGSWELL, of WINDHAM – he had but one daughter, to married the Rev. Samuel Fisher. Hon John, son of Abraham, married a daughter of the Rev. Noah Welles, of Stamford, and one of their daughters married Judge Radcliff of Brooklyn, Long Island. The 2d son of Abraham, viz. Hon. James, was a gentleman of great ability; three of his daughters married clergymen, viz. Rev. Messrs. Whelpley, Buren, of New York, and Dr. Skinner, late a Professor in the Theological Institution at Andover. It is supposed by the Compiler, that a sister of Sarah Wheelock married the Rev. Dr. Williams, of Springfield, who had three sons who were ministers, of which Rev. Dr. Williams, of Tolland, was one. By the different marriages into the Davenport family, they are now the relatives of the following families, viz. Pattens, Williams, Cogswells, Fishers, Welles, Radcliffs, Whelpleys, Burens, Skinners, Storrs, Stebbins, Streets, Barkers, Reynolds, Kirklands, Wheelocks, and many other distinguished families in this country.

Conant, Exercise and Sarah, Windham, as early as 1697. This name is first found at Windham – perhaps the name might have been at New London earlier.

Samuel Whiting, of said Windham, and other personal property. To the church of the town he gave 10 [English pounds] in money. He made Mary Howard executrix, and gave her the remainder of his estate, unless his child, or any of his children then in England, should come to New England, and if so, such as should come should have all his estate. He was the first of the name in the colony. This name is spelt Kates, on record, and by himself in his will – but he was the same Lieut. John Cates who served under Oliver Cromwell’s administration of the British Government. His negro Jo. Whom he gave to Mr. Whiting, he procured in Virginia, where he first landed. He escaped his pursuers in Virginia, and came to Norwich, yet feeling unsafe, he went to Windham, when a wilderness and in ’89 raised the first house, where he closed his life in safety from punishment by Charles II.

Ripley, (see also Samuel Abbe). Ripley, Joshua, of Windham, was one of the early settlers of the town, and was a commissioner there before 1697. He was a leading man, and well educated. He is the first of the name found in the
colony, and was probably the ancestor of those of the name in Connecticut.

Wade, Robert, of Windham – died in 1696. Peter Cross, administrator. [a note at the end referred you to another page: Wade, Robert, Hartford, 1639 – of Saybrook in ’57.
