About Lt. Samuel Huntington

"Lieutenant" Samuel Huntington, according to on 1/25/09

Info from "Huntington Family in America", Page 690, and in, "The Huntington Family in America A Supplement,.... 1915.", page 304 & 305 (? check page numbers).

Page 690 states, "Samuel Huntington, born in Norwich, Conn., March 1, 1665. Here he married, October 29, 1686, Mary, daughter, probably of William Clark, of Wethersfield. He removed to Lebanon in 1700, having sold his houselot and house in Norwich for a parsonage. He was Deputy to the General Court from Lebanon in October, 1705 and May 1708; was appointed Lieutenant of first trainband of Lebanon, in May 1709. Before his removal he had become a public man, having filled several offices, being as early as 1692 appointed constable, having already been one of the Townsmen. How well he was thought of in Norwich, appears from his appointment by the citizens of Norwich, ten years after his removal to Lebanon, on a Committee to locate the new meeting house about which a serious dispute had arisen. The site chosen by the committee was not approved by the town, and the church was erected upon another spot. But a few years vindicated the wisdom of the committee, as was abundantly testified by a second church, built upon the place selected by them.

He was a large landholder both in Norwich and Lebanon.

His wife's name appears on the list of the Lebanon church in 1701; but his own was not added until 1707.

In 1687, February 13, the town of Norwich granted him a parcel of land at Trading Cove Brook, 'by his father's, to be laid out by measure, 30 or 40 rods wide the length of his father's land'

He died in Lebanon, May 10, 1717 and his wife, October 5, 1743."

It also states of his children, "The first five were born in Norwich, Conn., and the other three in Lebanon, Conn."

The main book only lists the first eight children, the Supplement of 1962, adds 2 more found in later research.
