About Nathan Chesebrough, Captain and Deacon

Captain and Deacon Nathan Chesebrough was an extensive landholder of

Stonington, Connecticut. He married Bridget, daughter of Doctor James Noyes,

of Stonington, and granddaughter of the Reverend James Noyes (Harvard College,

1659), first pastor of the Church in Stonington and senior member of the

original Board of Trustees of Yale College. As their sons grew up he gave each

of them a large farm. Captain Chesebrough was of the third generation in the

line of descent from William Chesebrough, who migrated from Boston, England,

to Boston, Massachusetts, with Governor Winthrop's colony in 1630, and planted

himself in Stonington, Connecticut, in 1649, as the first white settler.
