Abstract:

The collection consists of a variety of documents removed from the collections of the New Haven Colony Historical Society because they lacked any connection to New Haven, Connecticut. The documents include correspondence, deeds, bonds, writs, summons, estate records, military commissions, and proprietors' records. The earliest documents are the proprietors' records which lay out the lands of Windsor, 1729, and the area west of Farmington and Simsbury, 1733. Within the correspondence are letters written to Daniel Sheldon of Litchfield, Connecticut, about the Revolutionary War battle at Kingsbury and the occupation of Washington by the British in 1814. Among his correspondents was Uriah Tracy. Another body of correspondence was written to Charles Sherry of Norwalk, Connecticut, 1836-1844, from his brother MRS. The Brown family of Stonington, Connecticut, is well represented in the collection with estate records, distribution of property, deeds, financial records and receipts for shares in the Groton & Stonington Turnpike, 1827. Brown family members include Ichabod (several generations), Elias, Palmer and Nelson. Another body of records relate to the town of Huntington, Connecticut, and Samuel P. Mills of the same town. There are bonds, writs, land records including plot plans, and tax documents, 1811-1833. Similar materials exist for the Sanford family of Redding, Connecticut, specifically Lemuel, Jonathan R. and Thomas. Within their papers are three tickets to P.T. Barnum's Museum. Of particular interest is a pamphlet entitled "Heads of Inquiry relative to the present state and condition of ... Connecticut", 1775, presented to Colonel John Trumbull by President John Adams, through the person of Josiah Quincy. Inside the pamphlet and affixed to the front cover is a receipt noting that Jeremiah Wadsworth purchased two prints by John Trumbull in 1788. The prints were the Battle of Bunker's Hill and the Death of General Montgomery. Filed under D for Danforth is a bill of sale for pewter, 1814, sold by Samuel Danforth.
