Nicholas Disborough(Desborough) was born in England in the early 1600's. The best available research indicates that Nicholas came direct from England to the new town of Hartford in the CT Colony; where records show he became a frequent purchaser of lands, beginning in Feb. 1639. Nicholas was a soldier in the Pequot War in 1637. He is listed among the original settlers of Hartford CT.
Nicholas Disborough married on 2 Apr 1640 to Mary Bronson (Brunson). Mary Bronson was born , probably in Braintree, Essex England, where her father Richard Bronson Sr., was a member of the Rev. Hooker's Church at Chelmsford.
