304 (A talk given by John Winthrop at a meeting of the Society held at the New London County Historical Society, 11 Blinman Street, New London, Conn. Mr. Winthrop is president of the host Society. He has lived in New London all his life, except for service in World War II. He is presently Superintendent of Mails in New London.)

I have been asked to talk to you about my Winthrop ancestors in early New London. In doing this I would like to talk about five of the early Winthrops: John Winthrop the Younger, Fitz John Winthrop, Wait Still Winthrop, John Winthrop F.R.S., and John Still Winthrop. Together they were associated with New London history from 1645 to 1776, a period of 131 years.

John Winthrop the Younger was the first of the Winthrop family to be directly involved with the history of New London. He was born February 12, 1606, at Groton, England. His father, then eighteen years old, would later become governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Young John attended school at Bury St. Edmonds, went on to Trinity College, Dublin for two years, and the proceeded to London where he devoted himself to the study of law.

In 1627 he sailed with the Duke of Buckingham's fleet to relieve the Huguenots at La Rochelle, and the following year he was off on a tour that lasted fourteen months and took him to Italy, Constantinople, and Holland.

Upon his return in 1629, then aged 23, he learned of his father's plans to leave for New England and wrote to him as follows:

"...I shall call that my country, where I may most glorify God and enjoy the presence of my dearest friends. Therefore, herein I submit myself to Gods will and yours, and, with your leave, do dedicate myself (laying aside all desires of other employment whatsoever) to the service of God and the company herein (The Massachusetts Bay Company) with the whole endeavors, both of mind and body."

John proved to be of great help to his father in transacting the business of the company, and when the father sailed aboard the Arbella in the spring of 1630, young John remained behind to dispose of the family property. He not only accomplished this task but also found himself a wife in the person of Miss Martha Fones, a cousin, whom he married on February 8, 1631. (Martha was the sister of Elizabeth who was the subject of a novel, "The Winthrop Women," by Anya Seton.) In August of 1631, young John set sail for New England on board the Lion, with his wife Martha, Mrs. Winthrop, Sr., and the rest of the elder Winthrop's children. They arrived in Boston in November of 1631.

Almost immediately John was elected an assistant and in January of 1633, the Court of Assistants directed him to establish a plantation at Ipswich. John left for Ipswich and worked through the spring and summer setting up the plantation. It was here that he gained valuable experience that would be of great help to him at a later date in Connecticut. His wife and a baby daughter joined him at Ipswich in the fall and they lived together there until the following summer when both Martha and the baby died. This double tragedy made John lose interest in Ipswich and a short time later he sailed for England. While there he talked to many people about New England, among them the Lords Say and Brooke. These gentlemen engaged John to establish a fort at the mouth of the Connecticut river and made him Governor of the Connecticut River and lands adjacent thereto, for a period of one year.

Winthrop sailed again for New England in 1635, bringing with him a new wife, Elizabeth Reade. In 1635 and 1636, John spent considerable time in the Saybrook area and it must have been at this time that he saw and fell in love with Fishers Island and that part of the Connecticut shoreline east of Saybrook.

At the end of his contract with Lords Say and Brooke, John returned to Massachusetts and became involved in a project to build iron works at Braintree. He made a trip to England and brought back workers, and at first the operation at Braintree and Saugus was a success. They turned out tools and utensils sufficient to the needs of the colony with a little left over for export. However, labor problems did arise, and production declined.

In 1640, John applied for and was granted Fishers Island and in 1644 he was authorized to start a plantation in the Pequot country. In 1645, at the age of 39, John was in the area of Eastern Connecticut for the settlement to be called Nameaug first, then Pequot, and now known as New London. It is easy to picture John standing on high ground, looking out over a beautiful unspoiled Thames River valley. Perhaps he could see his own Fishers Island and delight in its proximity. To my thinking, he couldn't have made a better choice.

In 1646, John brought his family to Fishers Island. They wintered on the Island, and i the spring moved to Nameaug, where a house had been prepared for them. The next few years were spent in settling in: laying out the town, establishing its government, getting the colony started. John's experience at Ipswich, and again at Saybrook, must have been of great value to him and to the town.

In 1651, John was elected an assistant to the Connecticut government, and in 1657, he was elected governor of Connecticut and ordered to Hartford, which became his headquarters for the next 20 years. In 1661, when the Connecticut Charter issue arose, John was sent to England to obtain a charter for Connecticut. This he did in 1663. In 1667 and again in 1670, John tried to resign his office as governor, and each time his request was denied. He continued in office until his death in 1676, at 70 years of age. He left a will that divided his property with two shares to each of his two sons, and one share to each of his five daughters.
