Rev. Edward Dorr1

M, b. 2 November 1722, d. 22 October 1772
     Rev. Edward Dorr was born on 2 November 1722 at Lyme, New London County, Connecticut; Son of Edmund Dorr & Mary Griswold.1 He's estate was probated in 1742 at New Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut, Graduated Yale 1742.1 He was ordained on 20 April 1748 at Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut; He was ordained in the First Church in Hartford Conn.1 He married Helena Talcott at Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut, in May 1748.1 Rev. Edward Dorr was buried on 22 October 1772 at Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut; His monument had the following inscription: "Here lies interred thebody of the Reverend Edward Dorr, the late Learned and Pious Pastor ofthe first Church of Christ in Hartford, who departed this life Oct.20th Anno Dommini 1772 in the 50th year of his age and 25th of hisministry. And Jesus said I am the Resurrection and the life. 11.1 He died on 22 October 1772 at Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut, at age 49; After many months of paralytic disability he died 20 Oct. 1772, at the age of 50. The sermon at his funeral, by the Rev. Elnathan Whitman(Y.C. 1726), was printed.1 Rev. Edward Dorr was born at Lyme, CT, November 2, 1722. He was thesecond son of Edmund Dorr, Clothier of Lyme, and grandson of EdwardDorr, first of the name in this country of Roxbury, MA, about 1670.his mother was Mary, daughter of Matthew Griswold of Lyme.
From the age of eight to his entrance at Yale College, probably at 16,his religious impressions, outside of those of home life, must havebeen derived from the ministrations of Rev. Jonathan Parsons, whosettled at Lyme in 1730, and was one of the most zealous and useful ofConnecticut ministers in the era of Great Awakening. to whom heespecially was indebted for the impels which prompted his union withthe church in Lyme, June 7, 1741 is not entirely clear. He was, atthe time, a member of Yale College, and may have been converted in thecollege revival, or previously under Mr. Parson's ministry at home.His name stands eleventh on the list of fifteen graduates of the classof 1742; the order of names on such list, in that day was determined,not by scholarship or by the alphabet, but by the considered socialstanding of the graduate or of his family.
Mr. Dorr was licensed to preach by the New Haven Association, May 29,1744. In September 13th following he received a call to the church inKensington. There was a complicated disturbance in the church andparish at that time, and a council of ministers advised on January 2,1745 that Mr. Dorr continue to preach until the following June, "bywhich time God in His providence may make more open and clear the wayof his and your duty." On June 5, 1745 the Association advised hissettlement, and on October 10th the Society voted him 700 pounds "Oldtenor" as a settlement, and 50 pounds annually as salary for sixyears, and 60 pounds a year afterwards.
These conditions were accepted by Mr. Dorr, in a letter dated at Lyme,October 30, 1745. Nevertheless the church and parish quarrelcontinued, and on august 20, 1747, found Mr. Dorr preaching inHartford, and the Society voted to authorize him to "continue to doso." He did so, under the supervision of Minster Wad worth, until hisdeath in November of that year. On the third Thursday of January,1748, a committee proceeded formally to invite Mr. Dorr to thepastorate.
Mr. Dorr recorded the subsequent procedure with his own hand: "Aprilthe 27th, 1748. Edward Dorr was ordained Pastor of the First Churchof Christ in Hartford. the Rev. Mr. Bissell began with prayer. YeRev. Mr. Whitman preached a sermon from 2 Cor. 4-5 the Rev. Mr.Colton made the first prayer. Mr. Whitman of Farmington gave thecharge. Mr. Steel made the second prayer, and Mr. Whitman of Hartfordgave the right hand of fellowship. Give me grace, O God, to be afaithful servant and make me a successful minister of the Gospel ofJesus Christ -- E. Dorr.
Mr. Dorr subsequently married Helena, youngest daughter of the thenlately deceased Governor Joseph Talcott of Connecticut. She was bornMarch 13, 1720, being two and one-half years his senior. Pastor Dorrwas, at the time of his settlement, a little more than 25 years ofage. He exercised a laborious and faithful ministry. As a result ofhis labors 207 persons owned the covenant, and fifty-five wereadmitted to full communion, during the 24 years and five months of hispastorate. A paralytic affliction seems to have overtaken Mr. Dorrabout the age of 47 and its ravages increased until his death. On the20th of October, 1772, Mr. Dorr died, age 49 years and 9 mos. Mr. &Mrs. Dorr had no children. Rev. Edward Dorr Griffin was Mr. Dorr'snephew, and was named for him, being the child of his sister, EveDorr, remembered in his will.
Mr. Dorr's will, dated January 2, 1770, and approved December 2, 1772,gave all his real and personal property in Hartford (except hiswearing apparel which were left to his brothers, George and MatthewDorr of Lyme, and 5 pounds each to his sisters, Elizabeth and Eve tohis wife Helena Dorr, who later married Rev. Robert Breck of Vermont,later returning to Hartford, dying July 9, 1797, and being buried inthe same grave with Mr. Dorr.
The value of his Hartford property was 726 pounds, 6 pence, 10d. Hislibrary was valued at 19 pounds, 4s, and 4d; his house and homesteadat 400 pounds; other lands at 126 pounds. Among the items ofinventory were "Negro woman called Sikey, 15 pounds; a Negro boycalled Pater 55 pounds; a horse, 10 pounds; a Chemise 9 pounds; andsilver to the value of 54 oz, 7 penny weit."1 He Biographical Sketch Yale College Edward Dorr, second son of Edmund Dorr, a cloth-dresser, of Lyme, CT.,and grandson of Edward and Elizabeth (Hawley) Dorr, of Roxbury, MA.,was born in Lyme, 2 Nov 1722. By his mother, Mary, daughter ofMatthew and Phebe (Hyde) Griswold, of Lyme, he was a nephew of theRev. George Griswold (Y.C. 1717).
He united with the church in Lyme, 7 June 1741, under the inspiringministry of the Rev. Jonathan Parsons.
He studied theology, and was license to preach by the New HavenAssociation, 29 May 1744. For more then two years (1744 - 46) hepreached in Kensington Society, in what is now Berlin, CT; butdifficulties about the salary, and the recovery of the minister whosecolleague he was expected to be, prevented his settlement.
Before midsummer, 1747, he begun to supply the pulpit of the Rev.Daniel Wadsworth (Y.C. 1726), pastor of the First Church in Hartford,CT., an after Mr. Wadsworth's death a committee was appointed (10December) to consult the Association on the propriety of settling Mr.Dorr. A call was given him, 20 Jan. 1748, and on the 27th of April,he was ordained over this church, where he remained until his death,after many months of paralytic disability, 20 Oct. 1772, at the age of50. The sermon at his funeral, by the Rev. Elnathan Whitman (Y.C.1726), was printed.
He married Helena, youngest daughter of Governor Joseph Talcott, ofHartford, and sister of the wife of his predecessor. they had nochildren. His name was perpetuated in the name of his sister's son,the Rev. Edward Dorr Griffin (Y.C. 1790). The widow next married theRev. Robert Breck ( Harvard 1730), of Springfield, MA., 2 Nov 1773.After his death (23 April 1784) she returned to Hartford, where shedied 9 July 1797, in her 78th year.
The period of his ministry was one of general declension, but, sayshis latest successor in office, "the tokens that survive of him givenot only a fair but an honorable place in the ministry of thischurch."
He published:
1. Duty of Civil Rules to be nursing Fathers to the Church of Christ.A Sermon (from Isa. xlix, 23) Preached before the General Assembly ofthe Colony of Connecticut; on the Day of Anniversary Election; 9 May1765. Hartford. pp 34.

Robert Breck1

M, b. 25 July 1713, d. 23 April 1784
     Robert Breck was born on 25 July 1713 at Marlborough, Middlesex County, Massachusetts; "Robert Breck, the minister of the First Church of Springfield, was born on July 25 1713 a son of the Reverend Robert (A.B. 1700) and Elizabeth (Wainwright) Breck of Marlborough. The family used a coat of arms, an the father was famous as a scholar, particularly of Hebrew, whih is the only rasonable explanation of the fact that young Robert was placed fifth in his class at Harvard, much above the normal place of a son of a country minister."2 He graduated from high school at Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, on 11 June 1730. School: an unknown place .2 He lived between 1732 and 1735 at Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts; "Parson Breck died in 1731, and in May 1732, Robert again took up residence at college, still disorderly. He was given a Hopkins scholarship but he never received the stipend. . . On May 8 1733, the Overseers voted Brek 30 pounds from the Mary Saltonstall legacy. This was an unprecedented grant, and it has been the basis for the claim of the librals that Breck was in high favor at Harvard. However, the Corporation never took action on this grant and no such credit appears in Sir Breck's acount in the steward's record. Unfortunately, his debit page has been torn out of the steward's book so th point cannot be proved by balancing the account. Without doubt his mental abilities had begun to be apparent, for when he took his M.A. in 1733 he was assigned a speaking part at the commencement. . .
Breck remained in residence at the college for two years after taking his second degree. With a group of six students he ha joined the First Church of Cambridge, as his father had done thirty years before. On November 12 1734, the Corporation voted that h should have half of th income of th Madam Saltonstall legacy if he remained in residence, but on April 8 1735, the Overseers ordered that this payment should be withheld. He had, indeed, gone down to Connecticut to preach, but he was technically still in residence, and the action of the Overseers was probably due less to the fact that he had gone there tan to what he was doing there. The ecclesiastical controvery which has always been associated with his name had begun."2 He was pastor of First Church, Springfield, MA between 26 May 1734 and 23 April 1784 at Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts.3 He was ordained on 26 January 1736 at Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts; [The ordination] "was accomplished on January 26 1736."2 He married Eunice Brewer on 28 April 1736 at Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts.3 Robert Breck "Breck never attempted to hide his Arminianism although he would never accept that name for it. In his own church he obtained the abolition of public testimonials of personal conversion and introduced the Halfway Covenant, a too-liberal step which the church retracted after his death. More than any other minister of his group and generation he concentrated his preaching on the problem of toleration and orthodoxy. Force, he argued, must never be used to compel a belief in Christianity. Belief and faith should come from reason alone, and from the reasoning of the individual worshipper rather than that of the clergy: "If Persons should receiv the Doctrines of the Gospel upon our bare Assertion, this would not be to believe in God, but to believe in us. This would be in a criminal Sense to call us Masters." Ministers should however be sound in the faith." say 1750 at Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts.2 He witnessed Eunice Brewer's death at Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, on 12 August 1767.3 He married Helena Dorr at Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, on 16 November 1773.3,2 Robert died on 23 April 1784 at Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, at age 70. "In the early part of the summer of 1783 the consumption from which Breck suffered began to get the better of him: He found his constitution, which was naturally slender, sensibly failing. Though his people and friends flattered themselves, they could not flatter him, with the hope of his recovery. He often, both in publik and private, with the greatest imaginable composure, expressed his apprehension that the time of his departur was very near. Anxious for the welfare of his people, he protracted his publick labours, till weakness constrainted him to desist, and then, on a small return of strength, resumed them again." But this was not for long, and he was carried off on April 23 1784, an "awful and important event" for the town of Springfield." Colonial Collegians.3,2

     William Davenport was born on 18 September 1665 at Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut; "Willam Davenport was purportdly born Sept 18 1665 at Hartford, Conn, the purported son of Humphrey Davenport and Rachel Holmes. Neither the date of his birth nor parentage can be proved by available records, although there is circumstantial evidence that Humphrey and Rachel were his parents.

Gov Charles Morris1,2

M, b. 8 June 1711, d. 17 November 1781
     Gov Charles Morris was born on 8 June 1711 at Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.1,2 He married Mary Read at Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, in 1730.1,2 Gov Charles Morris died on 17 November 1781 at Windsor, Hants County, Nova Scotia, Canada, at age 70; Charles Morris was surveyor general of lands for the province for 32 years, a period which saw the founding of Halifax and Lunenburg and the coming of the pre-loyalists, when the colony's foundation was laid. Charles Morris also played a very important part in the development of the province's justice system. Charles Morris was born in Boston. His mother was a Rainstorpe. Charles was to marry into one of the high circles at Boston; his bride was Mary, the daughter of the Attorney General, John Read. He lived on his father's farm and taught school at Hopkinton, Massachusetts.In 1746 he was to receive a commission from Governor Shirley. Morris was to raise a regiment and go to Nova scotia. In 1746, there was a great deal of concern for the safety of Annapolis Royal, indeed of Boston itself, thi, on account of a large French fleet, d'Anville's Armada, which was expected to arrie on the coastl. By the time Morris arrived with his 100 New Englanders, the immediate threat had passed. He was ordered by Mascarene to march with his 100 to Minas and wait the arrival, coming by sea, of 400 more under Arthur Noble. He was thus there, in February 1747, with Noble, at the Battle of Grand Prac. Morris, unlike his friend Noble, was to survive the battle, so to return to boston.2

Wife Of Minister
A woman noted for her high spirited actions and sharp business icumen was Ruth Read Hunn who lived in Redding during the middle of the 18th century. Mrs. Hunn was the daughter of John Read and Ruth Talcott. In 1737, Ruth married the Rev. Nathaniel Hunn, the first minister of the Congregational Church.
Mrs. Hunn was not a mild, shy, and retiring minister's wife. She was determined and forceful, both in her private life and her business dealings.
In 1756, Mrs. Hunn enlisted the services of an arbitrator to settle a dispute between herself and Thomas Chambers of Newtown. Mrs. Hunn had commissioned Mr. Chambers to make a saddle for her, she was displeased with both the workmanship and the price or the saddle. She refused io pay Mr. Chambers for his work. Unfortunately, records regarding the outcome of the case could not be located.

Real Estate Saleswoman
Mrs. Hunn, unlike many women of Redding, owned property in her own right. She also dabbled in real estate adventures. In 1751 she purchased 26 rods of land with a dwelling from Gordon Marchant of Redding. Not long after, Mrs. Hunn leased this property, which was listed as being "near the Widow Ferry's lot," to William Trusdel for the sum of 51 shillings per quarter. The agreement signed in April of 1752 stipulated that at the end of said agreement both the land and dwelling should be returned to Mrs. Hunn in good condition.
Mrs. Hunn's estate, probated in 1767, was quite extensive, Indicating she had been very successful in her real estate dealings. Upon the death of Ruth Hunn her estate was listed at 1,297 pounds, her personal estate was 132 pounds and included many silver, pewter, and porcelain pieces. Mrs. Hunn's real estate holdings amounted to 1,165 pounds, this included 700 acres of land and a house and barn in Newtown, and 20 acres, a house and barn in Redding.
Mrs. Hunn may have been the prototype of many of the successful business women who live in Redding today.1,2 She DWT (#1824) has Ruth Hynn Read.
