Notes for NATHANIEL FOOTE: CHRISTENING: 5 MAR 1620, St. James, Colchester, Essex,England

   Colchester - In 1864, Charles M. Taintor described the first settlers of Colchester in the Preface of the Extracts From The Records of Colchester as: "a body of men of the highest respectability, and of the first families from different parts of the country..." The group was indeed a company of distinguished families, many members the descendants of New England's first colonial leaders. These prominent men were led to Colchester in 1698 by Quarter Master Nathaniel Foote, also from an important Colonial family. Foote was a leader in the early Connecticut militia and the grandson of a founder of Wethersfield. The Foote's celebrated reputation attracted many members of New England's leading families to the new plantation "at or near the place Called Jermiah's farme upon the Rode to Newlondon."
