The very few dates to be found for several years in the first records of Windsor, renders it difficult to designate time in all cases, and for three or four of the first years of the settlement there was little or no record. The following list of names are found in the land record of Windsor, in the hand writing of Bray Rosseter, Town Clerk of Windsor until 1652. Those names which have no date annexed, are entered 1652, though many of them were probably much earlier. Thomas Marshfield, 1642, Thomas Newell, '42, William Hayden, '42, John Banks, '44, Thomas Gibbard, '44, Richard Lyman, '44, James Eno, '46, Lawrence Ellison, '46, Anthony Dorchester, '49, John Wayt, '49, Owen Tudor, '49, John Bennett, '52, Peter Tilton, '52, Samuel Pond, '52, Thomas Orton, '52, Robert Howard, '46, Jasper Raulins, '52 of Roxbury before '46, Thomas Parsons, '50, Jeffery Baker, '52, John Osborn, '52, Robert Sanford, '52, Richard, Church, '52, John Strong, '51, Edward Griswold, '49, John Browton, 49, Miles Merwin, '49, St. John Nicholas, '49, Matthew Allyn, '47, George Alexander, '46, Thomas Huntington, '56, Walter Lee, '55, Edward King, (an Irishman) '62, Timothy Hall, '64, John Pettibone, '66, Joseph Skinner, '66, George Jeffries, '69, John Millington, '70, John Bartlett, '49, John Case, '64, John Griffin, '48, Humphrey Hydes.

Some of the following persons were located within the Palisado at the Windsor trading house, and others on the "common street" north, and many of them on the road leading west from Dr. Pierson's house and Joel Thrall's to sandy bank. Tradition says, that as late as 1700, there were more dwellings upon the two roads mentioned than upon main street, viz: William Gaylord, sen'r., Stephen Terry, John Hoskins and his son, Thomas Hoskins, Thomas Stoughton, Thomas Gunn, Thomas Holcomb, Humphrey Pinney, Josiah Hull, John Rockwell, Thomas Buckland, Joseph Clark, Thomas Dibble, Michael Fry, Philip Randall, Robert Winchell, Joseph Carter, William Hanmer, Eddy Filley, Richard James, George Hull, George Phillips, John Hawkes, Anthony Hawkins, David Wilton, Walter Filer, William Hill, Thomas Ford, Nicholas Denslow, Capt.

The Proprietors of the Undivided Lands of the Town of Hartford, in 1639, who were probably all settlers in the town at that time—I give a list of their names, viz: William Andrews, Jeremy Adams, John Arnold, Francis Andrews, Matthew Allyn, Andrew Bacon, John Barnard, Thomas Birchwood, William Butler, William Bloomfield, Richard Butler, Thomas Bull, John Baser, Robert Bartlett, John Crow, John Clark, James Cole, Nicholas Clark, Richard Church, John Cullick, Clement Chaplin, Dorothy Chester, Robert Day, Nathaniel Ely or Elly, Joseph Easton, Edward Elmer, James Ensign, Zachery Field, William Goodwin, William Gibbons, Richard Goodman, Samuel Greenhill, Geo. Graves, Seth Grant, Bartholomew Green, John Haynes, Edward Hopkins, Thomas Hooker, Thomas Hosmer, Stephen Hart, John Hopkins, William Hills, William Heyden, Thomas Hales, Samuel Hales, Wm. Hide, William Holton, John Higginson, Jonathan Ince, Thomas Judd, William Kelsey, William Lewis, Thomas Lord, Richard Lord, John Moody, John Marsh, John Maynard, Joseph Mygatt, James Olmsted, Richard Olmsted, Thomas Olcock, William Pantry, John Pratt, Stephen Post, William Parker, William Pratt, William Ruscoe, Nathaniel Richards, Thomas Root, Samuel Stone, John Steel, Thomas Scott, William Spencer, Thomas Stanley, Timothy Stanley, Edward Stebbins, George Steel, John Skinner, John Stone, Thomas Spencer, Arthur Smith, George Stocking, Thomas Stanton, Thomas Selden, John Talcott, George Wyllys, Thomas Welles, John Webster, William Whiting, William Westwood, Andrew Warner, Nathanieljard, William Wadsworth, Gregory Winterton, Samuel Wakeman, Richard Webb, Richard Wrisley, John Wilcox. In addition to this class of proprietors, there were others who by the courtesy of the town had the privilege of wood and keeping cows, &c. on the common, viz: John Brunson, John Biddell, (Bidwell) Thomas Barnes, Benjamin Burre, Nathaniel Barding, Thomas Blisse, Thomas Blisse, jr., Widow Betts, Thomas Bunce, William Cornwell, Nicholas Disbroe, Hosea Goodwin, Daniel Garwood, John Ginnings, Thomas Gridley, John Hallaway, John Hall, George Hubbard, Ralph Keylor, Nathaniel Kellogg, Thomas Lord, jr., Benjamin Munn, John Morrice, John Olmsted, John Purcase, William Phillips, John Pierce, Paul Peck, Tho's Richards, Richard Seymour, John Sables, Giles Smith, Thomas Upson, Thomas Woodford, Robert Wade, Richard Watts, Henry Walkley, James Walkley, William Watts, William Westley. Whether Tho's Reed, Thomas Fisher, John Friend, Thomas Goodfellow, Thomas Hungerfoot or ford, Thomas Munson, Renold Marvin, Abraham Pratt, and Samuel Whitehead were there at this time is uncertain—they had owned lots previous to 1639, and had sold them, or not fulfilled the conditions of the grant. If all these persons were settlers in Hartford at the land division in 1639, and had families, as probably most of them had, there must have been from 500 to 800 settlers in Hartford in 1639.

The following persons, it is supposed, came from England to Massachusetts with Mr. Warham in 1632-3, viz: Henry Wolcott, William Phelps, George Phelps, John Whitefield, Humphrey Pinny, Dea. John Moore, Dea. William Gaylord, Lieut. Walter Fyler, Matthew Grant, Thomas Dibble, Samuel Phelps, Nathan Gillett, Richard Vere or Voar, Abraham Randall, B. Egglestone and Thomas Ford, all of whom settled at Windsor under the pastoral charge of Mr. Warham. The following persons who first came to Hartford from Massachusetts, were from the county of Essex, in England, and probably from Braintree, in 1632, viz: Jeremy Adams, Matthew Allyn, Richard Butler, Edward Elmer, Richard Goodman, William Goodwin, Stephen Hart, John Haynes, (Thomas Hooker, Chelmsford) Thomas Hosmer, William Lewis, Richard Lord, James Olmsted, Daniel Patrick, John Pratt, William Pantry, Nathaniel Richards, William Spencer, Thomas Spencer, Edward Stebbins, John Steel, Henry Steel, Samuel Stone, John Talcott, William Wadsworth, Andrew Warner, Richard Webb, William Westwood, John White. These men, with others, went to Newton before Mr. Hooker; Mr. Hooker arrived and was settled there in October, 1633.

The following persons, mentioned by the Rev. Mr. Hotchkiss, were the early settlers of Saybrook, viz: D. Gardner, J. Winthrop, Higginson, Peters, Barker, Bull, William Bushnell, Clark, Lay, Lord, Parker, Pratt, Post, Champion, Griswold, Lee, Wade, Backus, Bliss, Huntington, Hyde, Larrabee, Leffingwell, Breed, Chalker, Waterhouse, Kirtland, Shipman, Whittelsey, and Willard. Many of these persons must have came directly to Saybrook, as their names do not appear upon any of the records of the three towns first settled; the remainder of them removed there from Windsor, Hartford and Wethersfield.
