Beckley Quarter

[Transcribed by Jane Devlin]


As early as 1668, Sergeant Richard BECKLEY bought from Turramuggus, Sachem of the Matttabesett tribe of Indians, a tract of 300 acres in what is known as Beckley Quarter, in the northeast part of the town of Berlin. In May, 1713, Newington, including Beckley Quarter, was incorporated as the Second or West Society of Wethersfield; in October, 1715, Beckley Quarter wa annexed to the Second Society of Farmington (Great Swamp), named Kensington in May, 1722, and now a part of the town of Berlin. The cemetery at Beckley Quarter was opened in 1760, Daniel BECKLEY, Jr., who died 4 March 1760, being the first to be buried there. The town of Berlin, taken from Wethersfield, Farmington, & Middletown, was incorporated in May 1785.
