Notes for Edward GRISWOLD
Very active in early community. Served as first deacon of church. [636]

Came with Rev. Mr. HUIT from England; was in Windsor 1639; removed to Killingworth, Connecticut, called then "Kenilworth," in honor of his native place. "From this manner of naming it Kenilworth after the home of Edward and Matthew GRISWOLD in England, a fair inference is that Edward GRISWOLD was the most prominent man of the little colony, especially as he was the first delegate to the General Court, a Justice of the Peace in Windsor and first Deacon of the Church. Edward GRISWOLD was 64 years old when he went to Killingworth." He had twenty-nine acres in Windsor granted him, bound south and east by the brook, east by river and Indian Reservation (Indian Neck). He removed with the first settlers to Hamonoscett; George and Joseph had the homestead. Edward GRISWOLD was Deputy from Windsor, 1658-1662. "In 1667, enrolled as Deputy," also "Commissioner of Kenilworth." In 1674 granted two hundred acres of land at north end of Lyme. Mr. Edward GRISWOLD, "Deputy for Killingworth in 1678, also nominated for assistant and as commissioner; represented his town in every court from 1678 to 1689; was during this period repeatedly made Commissioner." ("Public Records of Connecticut," 1678-1689). "He was first Deacon of the Church of Killingworth. In 1678 the [p.293] County Court appointed a committee to see what could be done toward a Latin school at New London for the County New London. Norwich, Stonington, Saybrook, Lyme and Killingworth were represented by one man each. Mr. Edward GRISWOLD represented Killingworth." [503]

Recorded in the 1640 Town Records at Windsor in the list of “First Settlers of Windsor, five years after their removal from Dorchester.” (NEHGR 5:365) [The list includes people who arrived after 1635, such as those who came with Huit in 1639]
