About John Ogden

This John Ogden was one of the petitioners to King Charles II. for the

charter of Connecticut, and in 1674-5 was deputy Governor of the state.

He was instrumental in settling the dispute about the boundary line between

New York and Connecticut, and in many ways is shown to have been an important member of the Colony and in the confidence of the people. There

appears to be no record of his death, but the inventory of his estate was exhibited to the Probate Court at Fairfield, by his widow Judith, on Aug. 7, 1682

His descendants are numerous, and their record worthy of being preserved.
