About the Association

The Platt Family Association was organized in Milford, Connecticut in 1981 to gather and preserve family history information regarding the Descendants of Richard Platt, born at Ware, Herts., England, and coming to Milford, CT in 1639.

Thomas Platt lived in Burlington, NJ by 1712 and was once conjectured to have been a descendant of Richard Platt of Milford, CT. Recent DNA testing on known descendants of both shows no connection.

The Association holds its annual meeting in July, generally in Milford, CT.
