About Benjamin Stevens

Benjamin Stevens (b. c.1655) was the third son born to Thomas Stevens, probably in Stamford, Connecticut. He resided in Stamford, Connecticut, and along with his brother Obadiah, was granted a house lot in 1676, by the town of Stamford, "for their services against the common enemy."

He married Hannah about 1680.

He relocated in 1680 to a place called "Hop Grounds" which is now Bedford, New York but then under the jurisdiction of Stamford, and claimed by Stamford as a part of the town.

About 1700, at least previous to 1710, Benjamin moved to Danbury, CT. Benjamin had four sons who came with him to Danbury, probably all underage at the time.

He lived on the east side of Main street, Danbury, between Rev. Mr. Shove on the north of him, and Lieut. Daniel Benedict south of him.

He died in Danbury, Connecticut around 1746.
