PREFACE. Page. 02

IT was not altogether intentional, this becoming the historian of the family here essayed to be shown genealogically. To explain let me say; incidentally making inquiry for some one to look at sundry records of Middlesex county, Conn., for the purpose of learning the names of certain of my own line of progenitors, I was referred to the late Hon. Edwin Stearns of Middletown, Conn. This gentleman having a taste for such research, an extensive acquaintance and an ample library to consult, and with leisure also, offered to collect, for a mere nominal compensation, all the facts relating to our family, readily attainable in that neighborhood, from public or private records, from living witnesses and printed books. It is scarcely necessary to say that I requested him to proceed, and the result was (excepting some error's and inaccuracies) a fair beginning for a genealogical history of the descendants of our paternal emigrant ancestor, comprising several hundred names. Having thus formed for me the groundwork or foundation upon which I might build, should the materials be tolerably well gathered, a somewhat colossal superstructure, I very naturally, as genealogists at least will understand. fell into the desire of knowing something more of the matter. It is perhaps unfortunate, that some other of the family (in place of leaving it for the Present compiler) had not at an earlier period, say a half century before, caught the mania for doing this genealogy. One with the proper zeal and plenty of pocket money to pay expense of travel, might have saved from the mists of oblivion, not a few now Lost branches, and regarding particularly the earlier generations, a more complete record.

Upon the whole, I think that the families herein displayed may very reasonably feel themselves obliged to me for the service; yet at the risk of losing half the credit for the philanthropy of the thing, I will be frank enough to say, that had not the research been a pleasurable pursuit, there would be no occasion for a vote of thanks to the undersigned, by the present generation, nor by the many which will no doubt succeed it.
It is proper here to mention the fact that the name of our family has gained, or suffered no Less then Thirteen various mutations in form since the settlement of our early ancestor at WETHERSFIELD, Ct., some 250 years ago. The fancies, I believe, of some have occasion. ally wrought changes for which the excuse does not appear. It was necessary for the compiler to adopt in this volume, some common form of the name, and whether he has judged properly and hit upon the true, original orthography or not is yet perha
