Dorothy ___, born about 1589; came to America 1635 and first settled in Newtown (now Cambridge) Mass., where his eldest son Richard had already established himself in 1632. He remained in Newtown a year or more, but in 1636-37 he and his family were a part of that large company, led by Rev. Thomas Hooker, from Massachusetts to form a new settlement on the Connecticut River. "they travelled more than a hundred miles through a hideous, trackless wilderness to Hartford," of which they were the founders. Thomas Lord became one of the original propietors and first settlers of Hartford. he lived on the north side fronting Mill River. The date of his death is not known, but he died early. His wife Dorothy died 1675,
