About Capt. Daniel Fitch

He settled in the North Parish of New London, now Montville, near the Norwich line. It appears that he lived at one time in Preston, as a partial record of his family is found in that town. He was an active soldier in the Indian ware of his day. His inventory shows that he owned three farms in North Parish, one at Trading Cove, on which he lived, one at Dry Brook, and one lying on both sides of the path leading to Hartford, through Montville and Colchester. The homestead farm at Trading Cove was a town grant to his father, and a portion of it still occupied by his descendants.
