for ministry under Reverend Hooker and Reverend Stone of Hartford,
CT. He removed to Norwich in 1660 with a large part of his congregation
and continued there until 1696 when he retired and removed to
Lebanon, where he died. A number of his sermons have been published.
He was a man eminent for his piety and good works. He spent some
years as a missionary to the Indians who thought much of him,
showing their friendship and love to him in many ways. Chief Owanech
granted to him and to Major Mason a tract of land five miles long
and one mile wide, upon which he founded the town of Lebanon,
CT. He gave the town this name because of cedars growing upon
the hillside. He also helped found Saybrook and his wife's father,
the Reverend Whitfield (who was a prominent minister of the Church
of England) helped in the founding of Guiliford, CT. More About
