The First Puritan Settlers of Connecticut
By Royal R. Hinman
Foreword by Christopher C. Child
Paperback, 388 pp., 6 x 9
Compiled by Royal Ralph Hinman, Secretary of the State of Connecticut from 1825 to 1842, this listing of Connecticut settlers includes for many the time of their arrival in the colony, their standing in society, and their place of residence. Hinman strove to include all the settlers he could find on record, continuing to add sections to this work as he discovered new information. Originally published in 1846, this resource is still valuable to family historians today.
