About Samuel Blakeslee

History of Wallingford, Conn. by Charles Henry Stanley Davis

Genealogies - Part 1, pg. 656

"There is a tradition among the descendants that two broth­ers of the name of Blakeslee came from the west of England, designing to settle in the Plymouth Colony, and that one of them died on the passage. The other came to Plymouth, where he died in the early days of the Colony, leaving one son, who was placed with a blacksmith in New Haven, Conn., to learn the trade. It is also asserted that the brothers brought an anvil with them, and that it was seen but a few years since in Roxbury, Conn.

Samuel and Elizabeth Blakeslee appear to be the first of the name in Wallingford; they were in the place about the year 1712; of their history very little now appears. "
