Connecticut, the state was originally part of the land claimed and granted to Massachuestts Bay Colony and under the supervison of the Massachusetts General Court. Whne the British Parliament and King Chalres and the Cromwellian Protectorate governed, like New Hampshire, in post-separatist settlements at New Haven. like Providence Plantation in Rhode Island, the colony was divided with separate charters for the three.|
Connecticut, retaining the basic claim in its lower third tier of Massachusetts, like the former, claimed a territory literally to the Pacific Ocean. This of course crossed the Dutch New Amsterdam (later New York) some of New Jersey to the Delaware River and seacoast; and the to third tier of Pennsylvania.
The Scott and Hale ancestry, here, was probably represented in those settlers, by people from Mansfield, Ct. (now a town in Warren County, Pa. as well) where GGGGG-GF Henry Scott and others ahd been stepped and stayed in Central Eastern Connecticut new towns. One sone of that Henry, an Abel Scott, who shres the name with one of Henry Scott's sons, or grandsons' by Thomas Scott, appears to transit from Mansfield to Ashford, Ct, to Bradford, Pa, to Halifax, Vermont. Connecticut settlers, encourgaed by Conneticut born Ethan Allen, also settled Vermont, more abundantly after Massachusetts ceded Vermont lands it owned to Connecticut; in resolving a southern Massachusetts-Connecticut border. Those Connecticut grants in Vermont received my GGGG-GF Thomas Scott and his wife GGGG-GM Sarah Hale and family; Halifax, Vermont is where GGG-GF Henry Scott was born - which reason we know now.
