--------------------

Capt. Robert Denison, the first of the name that settled in the North Parish of New London, now Montville, was son of John Denison and Phebe Lay, and a grandson of Capt. George Denison, the first of Stonington. This Capt. George Denison was born in England in 1618. He came to this country with his father and two brothers about1631, and settled at Roxbury, Mass. In 1640 he married Bridget Thompson of Stonington, by whom he had two daughters. Upon her death, in 1643, Capt. Denison returned to England and engaged in the civil war, which was then going on there. And the tradition in the family is that in an engagement in Ireland he was dangerously wounded, and in this situation was cast upon the hospitality of Mr. John Brodil of Cork, a gentleman of wealth who had an only daughter, Anne Brodil, who became a ministering angel to him in his critical condition and great need. That he recovered and persuaded her to marry him and to share his fortunes in this new world the sequel of events clearly prove. He had by her seven children, John, George, William, Anne, Margaret, Brodil, and Mary. The two daughters by his first wife were Sarah, born 20 March, 1641; married ___Stanton; and Hannah, born 20 May, 1643; married ___Saxton. Capt. George Denison was the first representative of Stonington in the General Assembly at Hartford. He died 23 Oct., 1694, while attending the assembly at Hartford, at the age of 76. His widow died 26 Sept., 1712, aged 97.

John Denison, their eldest son, born 1646, at Roxbury; married in 1667 Phebo Lay of Saybrook, daughter of Robert Lay. Their son, Robert, born 17 Oct., 1673, married Joanna Stanton, born 5 Jan., 1679. He is known to the records as Capt. Robert Denison of the North Parish. In January, 1709, Owaneco, the sachem of the Mohegans, convoyed by deed to Capt. Robert Denison, then of Stonington, a tract of 500 acres of land " on the southmost side of the little pond called ' Opsoboxuk' and adjoining land of Oliver Manwaring in the North Parish of New London." He moved on to this land within two or three years thereafter, and built his house. This house is still standing, though it may have been several times remodeled since. This house was afterwards occupied by Erastus Gardner, and now by Mr. Theodore Lehman. Capt. Robert Denison died about 1737.
