About Capt. Thomas Yale

About two years after marrying Rebecca, he, with others, began to agitate the settlement of Wallingford, to which place he removed in May, 1670, with a small band of other adventurers, under the guidance and direction of the New Haven Committee. He assisted in the formation of the church, February 15, 1675 and in the call of the first two ministers. In 1710 he and the Rev. Samuel Street were the only surviving signers of the Plantation Covenant of Wallingford. September 19, 1710 he was one of the committee of three appointed to sell Indian lands in the town. He was a justice of the peace, captain of the train-band, surveyor of land, and moderator of their meetings.
