    Notes:

    Name:
    William Comstock arrived in the Massachusetts Colony about 1635, with his wife (2) Elizabeth Daniel, and four or five of his children. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Wethersfield CT.

    He was one of 26 men from Wethersfield in the expedition commanded by Capt. John Mason that captured the Pequot fort at Mystic CT.

    About 1650, he moved his family to New London, where he had received a grant of land in 1647. He worked with John Winthrop to establish a corn mill, and in 1651 he "wrought on the mill dam". This mill is still in existence.

    In 1662, "Olde Goodman Comstock" was elected Sextant, "to order youth in the meeting house, sweep the meeting house and beat out dogs," at 40 shillings per year, to dig all graves, and have 4s for an adult grave, and 2s for children.

    The date of his death is unknown, but the history of New London states that he lived to an old age, on Post Hill near the north corner of Williams and Vauxhall streets.

    The Comstocks had six children; John b.1624, Samuel b.1628, Daniel b. 1630, Elizabeth b.1633, Christopher b. 1635.
