About Richard Seymour

Came from England in 1636 and settled in Hartford, CT -------------------- He was a freeman at Farmington in 1669 and one of the eighty-four proprietors of that town in 1672. His wife appears in a list of church members at Farmington, dated 1 Mar. 1679/80, and Richard became a member of the same church on 31 May 1685. He settled in that part of Farmington called Kensington (now the town of Berlin), and became a leader in the settlement. There the Seymour fort was built, within which were the cabins where the inhabitants sought refuge at night during the Indian alarms, Richard Seymour being the captain of the garrison. The well in front of the fort still remains.

The inventory of his estate, taken 29 Nov. 1710 by Thomas Seymour, Thomas Hart, and Thomas Curtis, showed property valued at £416. 13s. 3d. Administration on the estate was granted 4 Dec. 1710 to Hannah Seymour, the widow, and to Samuel Seymour, a son of the deceased. An agreement was made 1 Jan. 1710/11 between Hannah Seymour, the widow, sons Samuel, Jonathan, and Ebenezer Seymour, daughter Mercy Seymour, and Joseph Pomeroy in behalf of his wife Hannah, another daughter of the deceased. After the death of Hannah, the widow, a division of her estate was made 7 Nov. 1712, and was signed by Samuel Seymour, Ebenezer Seymour, Jonathan Seymour, Joseph Pomeroy, and George Hubbard.
