THE NEWBERRY FAMILY. 



IN y* Year of our Lord 1629, Divers Godly Persons in 
Devonshire, Somersetshire, Dorcetshire & other places, 
Proposed a Remoue to New England, among whom were two 
Famous Ministers, viz. Mr. John Maverick (who I suppose 
was somewhat advanced in Age) and Mr. John Warham (I 
suppose a ^'ounger Man), then a Preacher in y* City of Ezon, 
or {Exeter, in 3*"* County of Devon. These good People met 
together at Plymouth, a Seaport Town in y* S* County of 
Devon, in order to Ship tbemsclues & Families for New Eng- 
land; and because they designed to Hue together after they 
should arriue here, they met tc^ether in the New Hospital in 
Plymouth and Associated into Church Fellowship, and Chose 
y* S' Mr. Mauerick and Mr. Warham to be their Ministers and 
Officers keeping y* Day as a Day of Solemn Fasting & Prayer, 
and y* S*^ Ministers accepted of y* Call & Expressed y* same ; 
the Revd. Mr. John White of Dorchester in Dorcet (who was an 
active Instrument to promote y* Settlement of New England, 
and I think a means of procuring y* Charter) being present & 
Preaching }-• fore part of y* Da}', and in y* latter part of y* Day, 
they performed y* work aforesaid. 

This People being too many in Number to come in one Vessel, 
they hired one Capt Squeb to bring them in a large Ship of 400 
Tons ; they set Sail from Plymouth y* 20*** of March 1629-30, 
and arriued at Nantasket (now Hull) y« 30^ of May 1630, . . . 
They had agreed with Capt. Squeb to bring them into Charles

River, but he was false to his bargain & would not come any 
further than Nantasket, where he turned them and their Goods 
Ashore on y* point, leaving them in a forlorn Wilderness desti- 
tute of any habitation & most other comforts of life. But it 
pleased God, they got a Boat of some that had staid in y* 
Country, . . . and put their goods in y* Boat, and Instead of 
Sailing up to Charles River in a Ship were forced (as I suppose) 
to Row up in a Boat, it being about 3 Leagues to y* Mouth of 
y* River. They went up y* River until it grew narrow & Shal- 
low, & then put ashore & built a hut to shelter their Goods, 
Intending there to set down, it being about y* place where 
Watertown now is. The Indians upon their arrival Mustered 
thick, they thought about 300, but having with them an Old 
Planter as they called him, one that had stayed in the Country 
& could speak something of the Indian Language, (I suppose 
they took him from Charlestown that now is, for they called 
there & saw several Wigwams & one English Man in an Hquse 
where the}' ate boiled Bass, but had no Bread to eat with it) 
they sent him to y"* Indians, who were persuaded to keep at 
a distance y* first night, and y* next morning when the Indians 
appeared, they otfered no violence but sent some of their 
number holding out a Bass; our people sent a man with a 
Bisquet, <& so they exchanged not only then but often after- 
wards, a bisquet for a Bass, and y* Indians were very friendly 
to them, which our people ascribed to God's watchful Provi- 
dence ouer them in their weak beginnings ; for all the Company 
were not gone up y* River, but about Ten men to seek y* way 
for y* Rest. . . . They had not sta3-ed here at Watertown but 
a few days but y* Rest of their Company below had found out 
a neck of Land Joyning to a place called by y* Indians Matta- 
pan, (now Dorchester) that was a fit place to turn their Cattle 
upon to prevent their straying ; so they sent to their friends to 
come away from Watertown, and settled at Mattapan, & tnrni»d 
their Cattle upon y^ S^ neck, then called Mattapannock now 
called Dorchester Neck. They began their Settlement here at

THOMAS NEWBERRY. 7 

Mattapan y* beginniDg of June as I suppose, or thereabout, 
A. D. 1630, and changed y* name into Dorchester, calling it 
Dorchester Plantation. 

Why they called it Dorchester I have never heard, but there 
was some of Dorcet Shire, & some of y* Town of Dorchester 
that settled here ; and it is very likely it might be in Honour of 
y* aforesaid Revd. Mr. White of Dorchester. 

Our People were Settled here a month or two before Governor 
Winthrop & y* Ships that came with him arriued at Charles- 
town, so that Dorchester Plantation was settled next to y* Town 
of Salem in y* Massachusetts Colony, being before Charlestown 
or Boston : And y* Church of Dorchester y* oldest Church in 
y' Colony Except Salem ; and I suppose y* only Church that 
came over in ^Church Fellowship, the other Churches being 
gathered here. The Indians here at Dorchester were also kind 
to our People. 

The first Inhabitants of Dorchester came chiefly from y* S'' 
Countys of Devon, Dorcet & Somerset, and I think from some 
other places. They were a very Godly & Religious people; 
and many of them Persons of Note and figure, being dignified 
with y* Title of Master ; which but few in those days were.^ 

Unfortunately for the student of history, the first four 
pages of the earliest volume of Dorchester Town Records, 
covering the period down to January, 1632-8, as also the 
Church Records prior to August, 1686, are lost 

Governor Winthrop, in his History of New England, 
under date of June 24, 1688, says : — 

*'A ship arrived from Weymouth, with about eighty passen- 
gers, and twelve kine, who sate down at Dorchester." '

Whether Thomas Nswbebby was one of the passengers, 
we do not know, but certainly he was a resident of Dor- 
chester on the 1st of September, 1684, at which date we 
find these entries on the Town Records : — 

'^ Item — It is ordered that M' Newberj shall have 80 acres for 
his accommodation in the Plantation." 

" Item It is ordered that M' Newbery is to have for his purchase 
that he bought of M' Pincheon the house M' Pincheon. built 40 
acres of upland ground to the house 40 of marsh 20 acres in 
Quantq necke." * 

On the 8d of September, 1634, he was admitted a free- 
man of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay,^ which shows he 
must have been a member of the Church at Dorchester, in 
accordance with the following vote passed by the General 
Court at a session held in Boston in May, 1631 : — 

^' & to the end the body of the comons may be preserved of hon- 
est & good men, it was likewise ordered and agreed that for time 
to come noe man shalbc admitted to the freedome of this body 
polliticke, but such as are members of some of the churches 
within the ly mitts of the same." ^ 

At a town meeting held October 28, 1634, he was one of 
the " Tenn men chosen to order all the afifayres of the Plan- 
tation, to continue for one yeere " ; and he was re-elected 
in November, 1635.* He was a Deputy to the General Court 
held " att Newe Towne," March 4, 1634-5, and May 6th 
following.^ At the latter session he was " chosen ouerseer 
of the worke att Castle Ileland, in the roome of Roger

power to presse men for the worke, that Mr Ludlowe hadd, 
as also to presse carts for such allowance as hee thinks 
meete." ^ At the session of July 8, 1635, it is recorded, 
" Mr Neweberry & Will" Phelpes are appoyncted to sett out 
the bounds betwixte Wessaguscus & Barecove." ^ 

At a session of the General Court, held March 4, 1634-6,

to take it over the Water." * 

The date of Thomas Newberry's death does not appear on 
the Dorchester records as now preserved, but it must have 
occurred between December 12, 1635, and January 28, 1686, 
a period of thirteen months, as is proved by his will and 
inventory, which are number 1 of Suffolk County Probate 
Files, and are of a date prior to the entries in the first volume 
of the Probate Becords. 

The Last will & testament of M' Thomas Newberry of the Church 
of Christ of Dorchester who beeiuge iu pffect memory the

This present day there was returned into the Court by Mr

Land Records, lands are recorded under date of October 10, 

1640, to the seven children of Thomas Newberry by " grant 
from the Plantation." About September, 1645, there was 
presented the following petition : —

Sarah Newbebby was, according to all the evidence 
now obtainable, the oldest child of Thomas Newberry (1), 
and was undoubtedly born prior to his emigration to 
America. In the division of lands at Windsor, Connecti- 
cut, she received by " grant from the Plantation" 18 acres 
" Southwest from the Mill," 4 acres in the Great Meadow, 
and "over the Great River" a tract ten rods wide and 
three miles long, also 1 acre " towards Podunk." ^ 

She married, November 18, 1641, Henby Woixjott, 
born in England, 1610, son of Henry and Elizabeth 
(^Sanders) Wolcott of Windsor. Mr. Wolcott was a con- 
spicuous man in the town and colony, holding many 
positions of trust and responsibility.

Dorchester, but the date of his birth is unknown. There 
is recorded to him on the land records of Windsor, Con-

8 acres with meadow for a home lot, also 16 acres south-

John Wareham, Henrj Woleott, and his brothers and sis- 
ters, Benjamin, John, Mary, Rebecca, and Hannah New- 
berry lOJ acres of meadow near Podunk.^ June 24, 1644, 
he sells to John Wareham 1| acres of land '^with the 
standing frame thereon." ^ On leaf 6 of the Henry Wol- 
cott ledger, preserved in the library of the Connecticut 
Historical Society, there is an account with Joseph New- 
berry. The last entry is dated April 23, 1648, and proves 
him to have been living at that time. He soon disappears 
from the town, and all further trace of him is lost. 



Benjamin Newbebby. second son of Thomas New- 
berry (1) of Dorchester, Massachusetts, was by far the 
most prominent of any of his children, all of whom before 
1640 became residents of Windsor, Connecticut In the 
first volume of Windsor Town Votes, we find it recorded, 
that 

" The Townesmen mett Mrch the 9*** ^J and concluded 
That M^ Newbery shal take care for making and coppyng out 
the several rates y* are to be gathered and to gather the Towne 
rate and dispose of it accord to y" several occasions of the 
Towne and to be payd for his paynes herin." 

Also, 

"The Townesmen being met on Munday the 13 Sept** 58. 
Lt Nubery is desired to get such sills for y^ meeting house as 
are wanting and to bringe them to y* water side."

He was chosen one of the Townsmen in 1656, 57, 58, 59, 
60, 61, 67, 71, and 72, a Lister in 1663 and 1687. In 1677 
he was appointed one of the committee to seat the meeting- 
house, and 

'' At a Towne Meting, June 23, 1685,"

Connecticut for fifty sessions, from May, 1656, to October, 
1684, both inclusive, and at the Court of Election held in 
May, 1685, he was chosen one of the Assistants, which 
position he held (except during the usurpation of Andros, 
October, 1687, to May, 1689) for the rest of his life, being 
present at a session which opened eight days before his 
death. He was annually appointed a Commissioner for 
Windsor from May, 1669, to May, 1684, both inclusive, and 
chosen to this oflSce by his townsmen in May, 1688. Gov-

the militia or any part thereof as they shall judge meet, to 
appoint and commissionate officers how and which way to 
act and proceed soe as in their best judgm^ may most 
aptly conduce to a present preuention of the enemies 
designe and the conseruation of the Colony and the peace 
of the Plantations and people inhabiting the same." ^ In 
June, 1672, various vacancies on the committee were filled. 
" And in case any forces should be drawn from one county 
into another, it is by this Court ordered that the cheife 
millitary officer of that county where the forces are shall 
command in cheife all the forces in that county that belong 
to their county or that com from other countyes to their

county of Hartford, and Capt" Benjamen Newbery his 
second." 2 In August, 1673, this committee was superseded 
by the " Grand Committee," of which he was a member, 
and was appointed Captain of any forces that might be 
sent out of the county.* 

In November of this year, the General Court at a special 
session passed an act establishing a ^' standing Councell of 
Warr in this Colony," which " shall haue full power to act

1676-7. 

At a meeting of the Council held August 6, 1675, it was 
ordered that a company of one hundred dragoons should 
be raised in Hartford County ^^ to be in readiness upon an 
bower's warning for a march, whoe are to haue their armes 
well fixed and fitted for seruice." ^ Twenty days later it 
was voted that " Capt. Newbery being of the Councill and 
his attendance being necessary is released from his at- 
tendance as Capt. of the dragoones that are to goe out 
of the county of Hartford, and L'^ Nicholas Olmsteed is 
appoynted their Captaine."^ 

May 20, 1676, he was appointed to the command of a 
body of eighty men from Hartford and the neighboring 
towns, which were " raysed to march to North Hampton,

BENJAMIN NEWBEREY. 27 

In March, 1662-3, the General Court appointed him and 
two others as a committee ^' to laj out all those lands that 
are yet vndevided at Mussaco,* to such inhabitants in Wind- 
sor as desire and need it";^ and in 1668 the committee 
were given further instructions regarding the division of 
lands, and the making of a settlement there. 

In October, 1664, he with four others was appointed " a 
Committee in the behalfe of this Colony to use their en- 
deauours to issue and setle the bownds of the Colony 
between the Bay and vs, and Road Island and vs, and 
o' Sowth bownds " ; * and in May, 1666, he was appointed 
one of a committee ^^ to settle the matter in difference be- 
twixt Stonington Inhab^ and the Indians at Coassatuck." 

He dealt very extensively in real estate.

End of his forty foot^ and George Griswolds plat Set out to 
him.^ 

The records show that he purchased numerous other 
tracts of land. 

In October, 1667, the General Assembly granted " Mr 
Thomas Stanton & Capt*^ Newbery the sume of Two Hun- 
dred & Fifty Acres of land a piece for a farme, whereof 
there may be thirty acres apiece of meadow if it may be 
fownd."2 

Bbnjamin Nbweebby married, June 11, 1646, Maby 
AtiTiYN, daughter of Matthew Allyn of Hartford and 
Windsor. 

The General Assembly, at a session which commenced 
September 3, 1689, still further honored him by promoting 
him to the position of Major of the Hartford County Regi- 
ment of militia.^ He was not destined to bear his new 
honors long, for on the Windsor records we find that 
" Major Benjamin Newbery dyed September 11, 1689." 

Mrs. Mary (Allyn) Newberry died July 29, 1689. 

On the Hartford Probate Records, under date of Novem- 
ber 11, 1689, appears this entry: — 

" An Inventory of the estate of Majo' Benjamin Newbery

JOHN NEWBERRY. 85 

6. 

John Newbebby, youngest son of Thomas Newberry (1) 
of Dorchester, Massachusetts, was probably born about 1680. 
With the rest of his father's children, he became a resident 
of Windsor, Connecticut, where it is recorded : — 

^^ Octob. 10, 1640 John Nuberry hath graunted from the plan- 
tation southwest from the mill thirteeue acres, the breadth 
thirteene rodd more or less the length fr6 Arthur Williams lott 
backe west eight schoore rodd bounded north by Henry Woolcott 
South by Benjamin Nuberrj'. 

" In the greate meade thre acre the breadth three rodd more or 
lesse the length from the rivulett back to the great river 
bounded North by Beniemin Nuberry South by Sarah Nnberr}^ 

^'Ouerthe greate river towards Podancke one acre three quar- 
ters of meade the breadth foure rodd more or lesse the length 
from the river backe to the swampe seventytwo rodd bounded 
North by Beniamin Nuberrj- South by Sarah Nuberry. 

^*- Over the greate river in breadth ten rodd more or lesse, the 
length from the greate riuer backe to the east three miles bounded 
north by Beniamin Nuberry South by Sarah Nuberry 

'* Purchased of John Wareham over the greate river in breadth 
next the same forty rodd in length three miles bounded north by 
the land of Baggatt Eggleston South by land of Thomas Staynes 
and W" Hosford 

'' John Nuberry by an exchange hath altered the form of his 
three acres in the greate meadow, the length is twenty three 
rodd, the breadth twenty one rodd with the ditch it bound north by 
Mr Wareham South by Henr}' Woolcott East by the greate river 
west by Hannah Nubury." * 

The records of the Particular Court of Connecticut show 
that he was living December 2, 1647.* It is inferred that

Rbhecca Newhebby, daughter of Thomas Newberry (1), 
was, according to her age at death, born about 1632. 
Like lier brothers and sisters, she is recorded, October 10, 
1640, as having at Windsor, Connecticut, " by grant from 
the Plantation '* 13 acres Northwest from the Mill, 4 acres 
in the Great Meadow, and " over the Great River " a tract 
10 rods wide and 8 miles long, also 1 acre near Podunk. 
Later she was also ^^ possessed by virtue of the death of 
John Nubery " of a tract over the Great River 20 rods wide 
and 8 miles long.^

REBECCA NEWBERRY RUSSELL. 87 

She became the second wife of JoHir Rtjbsesll, Pastor 
of the churches in Wethersfield, Conn., and Hadley, Mass. 
The date of her marriage is not on record, but in the Henry 
Wolcott Ledger before referred to is " a noate of the aples 
I sould 1651," and among the charges we find ^^ It. to brother 
Russell 6 bushel 1 - 4 - 0." This would seem to prove that 
the marriage took place before 1652.

8. 

Hannah Newbesby, daughter of Thomas Newberry (1) 
of Dorchester, Massachusetts, was but a young child at 
her father's death. With the widow aud other cliildren she 
soon became a resident of Windsor, Connecticut, where, 
October 10, 1640, there was recorded to her as a grant 
from the Plantation 13 acres Northwest from the Mill, 4 
acres in the Great Meadow, and " over the Great River " a 
tract 11 rods wide and 3 miles long, also one acre near 
Podunk. Later, she became " possessed by virtue of the 
death of John Nubery " of a tract over the Great River 20 
rods wide and 3 miles long, beside other lands bought of her 
sister Rebecca.^ 

She married, date unknown, Thouab Hanfobd, Pas- 
tor of the Church at Norwalk, Connecticut." The second 

1 From gravestone at Barnstable, Mass. John Talcott of Hartford 
was the father of the first wife of the Rev. John Rassell. Mr. Talcott, 
in his will made in August, 1659, gives property '* to my grandchild, 
John Rassell." Later in the will, he provides, that in case the said 
grandchild died before the age of 21, the property should go to Jona- 
than Rassell. It is very significant that, in the same clause where he 
refers to John Rassell as " my grand child," he mentions Jonathan 
Rassell without using any word to indicate relationship.

entry in the first volume of Norwalk Town Votes is dated 
December 18, 1653, and relates to the building of ^^Mr 
Hanfords house." 

Hannah (Newberry) Hanford died some time prior to 
October 22^ 1661, when her husband married, second, Widow 
Mary Ince of New Haven. The date of Rev. Thomas Han- 
ford's death is not on record. On page 402 of Volume 1 of 
the Fairfield Probate Records is entered the inventory of 
the estate of Rev. Tliomas Hanford of Norwalk, ^Uate 
dec'd." The inventory is dated January 4, 1693, and shows 
property amounting to X681 Ts. 6d. The " Widow, her 
son Eliezer Hanford and her soninlaw John Edwards" 
were appointed Administrators. 

Rev. Thomas Hanford had several children, but none 
of them were the issue of his marriage with Hannah 
Newberry.

Thouab Nswhibbby (JBenjaminhi ThomaBl) was bom 
in Windsor, Connecticut, September 1, 1657. He married, 
March 12, 1676-7, Awn Fobd. Whether she was a rela- 
tive or not of Thomas Ford, one of the settlers of Windsor, 
and later a resident of Northampton, it has been impossible 
to determine. In anticipation of his marriage, Thomas re- 
ceived from his father a deed of four tracts of land on the 
East side of Connecticut River. We print the deed in full, 
as recorded on page 264 of Volume 1 of the Land Records 
of Windsor.

Cap! Benjamin Nubery personally appeared This Eighth day 
of ffebf one Thousand Six Hundred and Seventy Six and ac- 
knowledged the above written Deed, of Gifb to be his free and 

voUentary act & Deed, before me, 

John AUyn, Assis! 

Thomas is believed to have resided on the first piece 
described in the foregoing deed, part of which is still in 
the possession of his descendants. A very old house stood 
on the west side of the highway, a short distance north of 
the present South Windsor Congregational Church, and 
was torn down some time after the erection of this Church 
in 1845. There are good reasons for believing that Thomas 
Newberry resided in this house. 

At a town meeting held February 4, 1684, he was chosen 
fence viewer for that part of the town east of the " Great 
River '' ; and in January following was one of a committee 
appointed to perambulate the line between the towns of 
Hai*tford and Windsor on the east side of Connecticut 
River. 

He died April 80, 1688. From the Records of Births, 
Marriages, and Deaths, in the City Clerk's oflSce, Spring- 
field, Mass., we take the following entry: —

According to adjournment, Leonard appeared before 
the Court in September, and presented his administration 
account, " which is not sutably prepared & methodized." 
The Court therefore again postponed the case until 
November. The final issue is not a matter of record, and 
we therefore copy from the files.

east side of the Connecticut River in Windsor in 1720, we 
find him rated at £71. 5s. In the report of the committee 
appointed to seat the meeting-house in February, 1722-3, 
we find that he was to sit in '^ the pew by the great 
dore."i 

On the Records of the Hartford County Court for No- 
vember, 1736, there appears this entry : " This Court do 
Establish and Confirm MF Jo? Newberry, Mf Thomas Grant, 
Mr Joseph Rockwell and M! Gershom Loomiss to be Ser- 
jeants of the South Company or Trainband on the East Side 
Connecticutt River in the Town of Windsor." 

Joseph Newberry died August 30, 1751, in the sixty- 
eighth year of his age. The gravestone erected to his 
memory is still to be seen in the old graveyard in South 
Windsor, and is the oldest to any of the name in that town. 
There was no probate action on his estate. In 1764 the 
two sons divided the real estate between them^ Benjamin 
taking the north half and Joseph the south half of the 
home lot. In the deeds of partition no mention was made 
of his widow or daughter Sarah. 

His widow Sarah (Loomis) Newberry was buried July 
31, 1771.

JOSEPH NEWBERRY. 66 

11. 

JosEiFH NswBiSBBY (Joseph 10, Thomas 9, Benjamin 6, 
Thomas 1) was born January 11, 1709-10. He was nearly 
foi-ty years old when he married July 6, 1749, SYHEEi 
Stouohton, born June 9, 1730, daughter of William and 
Elizabeth (^Strickland') Stoughton. He was elected fence- 
viewer in 1740 and '43 ; Surveyor of Highways in 1744 ; 
Tithingman in 1745 and '66 ; Lister in 1746 and '47 ; and 
brander of horses from 1748 to 1772, inclusive. Joseph 
" Nuberry " is mentioned in " An acct. of ye Men that went 
upon an Expedition into y* frontiers," December 19, 1745, 
in the company commanded by Captain Ebenezer Grant.' 
He is believed to have been this Joseph, who was still un- 
married, rather than his father, who was then sixty-one 
years old, and the head of a family. 

February 22, 1754, Joseph and his brother Benjamin 
divided between them the real estate left by their father 
Joseph at his death, which was situated in the towns of 
Windsor, Barkhamsted, and Torrington. Joseph deeded to 
Benjamin " the North half of the lot where my father lived, 
and both of us now live," lying partly east and partly west 
of the country road, and bounded north by lands of Na- 
thaniel and Hezekiah Porter and Richard Skinner, south on 
land of John Wolcott, and west on Connecticut River. 
The whole lot being forty rods wide and three miles long. 
Benjamin deeded to Joseph the south half of this lot, in- 
cluded in the before mentioned boundaries.^ 

In 1760, the inhabitants of the Second Society in Windsor 
petitioned the General Assembly to appoint a committee to 
locate the site for a new meeting-house to be erected in the

said society. The committee reported in May, 1761, " that 
they repair'd to said society, view'd the parts and heard 
the parties, and affixed a stake on the west side of the street 
near the course of the line between the lands of Mr. Benja- 
min Newberry and Mr. Joseph Newberry on which their 
dwelling houses stand, which stake is to be included within 
the sills of said meeting house." ^ The General Assembly 
accepted this report, and the meeting-house was accordingly 
built on this site. 

Joseph Newberry died January 28 or 29, 1797, at the 
advanced age of 87, having outlived his wife Sybil (Stough- 
ton) Newberry, who died May 6, 1794. 

Joseph left a will, which was dated April 9, 1784. In it 
he gave his wife Sybil one third of the personal estate abso- 
lutely, and the life use of one third of the real estate. To 
John, "the eldest son now living," £20 in one year. To 
daughter Ann, wife of Warham Moore, <£60 in one year 
after death of testator, and the remainder of the estate to 
three sons, John, Joseph, and Dyer.^ We are unable to 
learn the value of the estate, as there was no inventory- 
The sons by mutual agreement made a division of the real 
estate, by which Dyer took the north part of the home lot 
on the west side of the road, bounding west on the Connect- 
icut River, and east on the street. John the middle divis- 
ion, and Joseph the south part of the home lot with the 
buildings, each division being six and two thirds rods in 
width. To John were set thirty -five acres of the lot on the

CLARINDA NEWBERRY GOODWIN. 59 

Church of East Windsor, to Jonathan Q-oodwin. He 
was born on the Goodwin place, Albany Road, in Hartford, 
December 28, 1799, and was the eldest son of James and 
Eunice (Roberts) Goodwin. He resided on tlie Albany 
Avenue farm which he inherited from his father. He 
became early interested in military affairs, and held the 
positions of Captain and Major in the First Company Gov- 
ernor's Foot Guard. Mr. Goodwin was prominent in both 
civic and business affairs, being elected a Representative to 
the General Assembly in 1836. He was Assessor in 1838, 
and from 1846 to 1862 ; member of the Board of Belief in 
1840, '43, '44, and '46 ; one of the Selectmen for ten years 
from 1842 ; and a member of the High School Committee in 
1849. He was one of the Incorporators of the Hartford 
Hospital in 1854, and from August, 1859, until his death, 
a Director of tlie Farmers and Mechanics Bank. He was 
a man of commanding presence, and throughout his life 
enjoyed the entire confidence and respect of all who knew 
him. 

Mrs. Goodwin's married life was uneventful, but charac- 
terized by an earnest loving devotion to her family and 
home. In the old farmhouse (nearly opposite to her hus- 
band's birthplace) which was provided by her father in 
law at the time of her marriage, there her children were 
bom, there her peaceful life was spent, and there she died. 
A pure minded Christian woman, true to her New England 
ancestry, of simple habits which were traditional she left a 
very pleasant memory. 

Jonathan Goodwin died in Hartford, October 8, 1877. 

Mrs. Clarinda (Newberry) Goodwin died in Hartford, 
May 6, 1866.
