About Thomas Trowbridge, II

A Modern History of New Haven, p. 14.:

His son, Thomas Trowbridge (III), was baptized in Exeter, Devonshire, England, December 11, 1631 and was but a child when his parents emigrated to America and settled in New Haven. He became one of New Haven's successful merchants and ship owners and was also active in politics. On the 1st of October, 1653, he was chosen watch sentry; in 1667 became county treasurer; and was made a freeman of Connecticut, May 20, 1668. He was confirmed a lieutenant of the New Haven Troop, May 20, 1675, and doubtless saw service in King Philip's war. He was treasurer of the town in 1679, justice of the peace in 1687 and acted as agent for the town in the purchase of much land from the Indians. He was Commissioner of New Haven from 1690 to 1693 and he was also actively interested in educational matters. He died August 22, 1702, and his grave is now included in the crypt of Center church (c. 1912). He was married June 24, 1657, in New Haven, and his first wife, Sarah Rutherford, daughter of Henry and Sarah Rutherford, was born in this city July 31, 1641, and died January 5, 1687.
