CT2 CRAZY CRATE CT2: BOOK 5: EARLY NEW HAVEN. By Sarah Day Woodward. Printed by The Edward F. Judd Company, 1929, 125 pages, hardbound plus Appendix. Some of the incidents in this book were told the writer by her father, whose memory went back to 1821. Dr. Joseph Darling (Yale 1777) and Capt. Nathan Beers (born in 1753) were two of his chief sources of information. Twenty-two sources of written materials were consulted and are listed in the Appendix. The ten illustrations were originally drawn and engraved by John Warner Barber, about 1830-1840. The chapter titles list the broad items of coverage. I. Early New Haven (Plymouth had been settled in 1620 by the Pilgrims who had already lived in Holland for twelve years. In 1628 the Puritan emigration began, and Salem, Boston, and other towns in Massachusetts had been settled, and Hartford, Windsor and Weathersfield were established in Connecticut before the New Haven Colony was established. The Rev. John Davenport and Mr. Theophilus Eaton, both having been involved in the Massachusetts Bay Colony were two men who were instrumental in setting up this venture. Several of Eaton's family, as well as a number of Davenport's parishioners were on the two ships, the Hector and its consort(name apparently lost to history), that headed to New England. The emigrants came from London, a party from Kent, another from Hertfordshire and still another from Yorkshire were added. They sailed into Boston harbor in June of 1637. They found land away from the other towns, a broad flat plain going two miles inland ending at the ocean with a harbor. They arranged with the Indians to purchase the land. Chapter II Thr First Year. A spring of water which was said to never freeze in winter and to have always been cool in summer was found near what is now the corner of George and Church Streets. By this spot the little group of eight built their winter quarters. The winter of 1637-38 was very long and cold. One of the men, probably John Beecher, died and was buried near their hut.
It is thought that about 250 of the settlers who had come on the ships, joined by about 200 more from the Massachusetts Bay Colony who were ready to move somewhere else came the next spring, also. With settlers, servants and children in all there were about 800 people who came to claim the land. Caves or cellars were dug in the sand banks. These were very unhealthy and were replaced with rude log huts to shelter them until the land could be distributed. Their first planted crop failed as it was too cold and rainy and the seed rotted in the ground. However, the second crop prospered in the hot, dry summer, so the planters felt greatly encouraged. Chapter III. Laying out the Town. There were surveyors in the group and they measured and platted the town. The terms under which the land was given out are stated in this chapter. The name was changed from Quinnipiac to New Haven in 1640. Chapter IV is The Fundamental Agreement. Drawn up by seven men - Theophilus Eaton, John Davenport, Robert Newman, Matthew Gilbert, Thomas Fugill, John Punderson and Jeremiah Dixon were chosen and covenanted together, and then received others into the fellowship of the First Church of Christ on the 22nd of August 1639. The Fundamental Agreement meant that the very foundation on which the colony stood was that only members of the Church should have the privilege of voting. Chapter V covers Commerce. Trouble with the Dutch. At this time, 1640, Capt. Nathaniel Turner purchased land on the southwestern coast of New Jersey, and some land near Philadelphia. Fifty families moved there. The planters built a "Great Shipp" to take furs, peas, wheat to England. 70 persons embarked on her, ten of whom were members of the church. The loss of the ship at sea shook the colonists. In 1648, after a great thunderstorm, the air cleared, and the sky was serene. A strange sight was seen in the sky. It lasted for over a quarter of an hour, and was beheld by many men, women and children. In the sky over the harbor, was the representation of a ship, with her sails set and full as if blown out by the gale. The ship sailed along, over the harbor, against the wind, until she was over the landing place. A puff of smoke was seen on the side of the ship away from the land, and in the smoke she vanished away. Little towns sprang up over the years in the plantation and jurisdiction of New Haven including Branford, Milford, Guilford, Stanford and Southold, Long Island. These plantations sent magistrates to sit in the General Court in New Haven. Eaton was elected Governor every year during his life. Chapter VI covers The Meetinghouse. Chapter VII covers The Green, Chapter VIII discusses the homes of the First Settlers. Chapter IX discusses the Internal Dissensions. Chapter X fills in informational materials on Davenport and Eaton. Chapter XI covers the regicides: Wiliam Goffe and Edward Whaley, two of the judges who had found Charles the First Guilty of High Treason, and had escaped capture by Charles II by coming to America. [Would have made a wonderful movie!]. XII traes another Regicide, John Dixwell/a.k.a. James Davids. XIII. The Union with Connecticut. XIV After the Union. XV The Breaking Out of the Rvolution. XVI The British Invasion of New Haven. XVII Early Schools and Schoolmasters. XVIII Yale College. XIX The Cemteries. XX Early Maps of the Colony of New Haven. XXI Mrs. Eaton. XXII A Retrospect. This book is full of names and history. A delight to read. Good and interesting writing makes this book a pleasure to read to help you understand the experiences which our ancestor endured. PRICE $20
CT2 CRAZY CRATE CT2: BOOK 5B: THE GUARDIANS OF THE NEW WORLD. By Doris H. Wackerbar. If you were intrigued by Chapter 11 of the book above, you will love each chapter of the trials and tribulations of these two gentlemen. Here is some backdrop for their story. This is a virtual script for what would be a thriller movie!
In 1630, John Winthrop led a Great Migration of over 3,000 souls westward across the Atlantic to establish a new England. The Massachusetts Bay Company, unlike the lonely band of near martyrs of the Mayflower Plymouth Company who had come ten years before, was not off-course nor was it of one mind. Indeed, some members never agreed much with anyone else.
Winthrop's Puritan company were political refugees. The leaders were men of estate, and the majority were businessmen, tradesmen and freeholders; many had left Old England without permission; the dependent families and single men and women passengers were chosen for the contribution they could make in the new undertaking. From the first, dissenters struck out in every direction seeking like-minds.
In 1675, Hadley, on the Connecticut River, was a pre-planned community, the third fresh start for its chief engagers. When King Phillip's Indi9an War began, they had been secretly and treasonously sheltering in their midst, for eleven years, a pair of old political allies with a price on their heads. They had retreated from not-so-safe-keeping in Milford and New Haven. The Guardians is the story of the pioneer-settler protectors of two Judges of Charles I, friends who sheltered them at the time New England was coming of age. The Guardians is a stirring account of the settlers who came to the wilderness of the New World in an effort to preserve representative government, and their struggle to prevent their established governments from being corrupted by absolute power. Wonderfully instructive about our early history. PRICE: $18

All copies are 5 ½" by 8 ½", are typed in a small font, and have laminated cardstock covers. Since each entry is typed in alphabetical order, there is no further index.

Well, that was quite a stroll through the beautiful fields and towns of Connecticut, wasn't it? I enjoy every minute of putting these rates together. I hope it helps you to know that there is so much material out there to help you get to know your ancestors, who were real people, a lot like we are in many ways, but their life was so different than ours in so many ways. I sometimes think I make a pretty good loyal American today, but would I have been anything like the person I am today, if I had been living in the 17th, or 18th, or even the 19th centuries? Have you given any thought to what their daily lives were really like. What they ate, what they wore, what they read if they even could read, I know I can milk a cow, gather the eggs, ride a horse, but I think I would really get in trouble if i had to weed the garden!
