    • "The Talcott Pedigree": Capt. Samuel Talcott was graduated at Harvard College in 1658, and made a freeman in 1662. His father settled him upon land, which he possessed, in Wethersfield. From 1669 to 1684 he was commissioner for Wethersfield; from 1670 to 1684, Deputy to the General Court, of which he was Secretary, in the absence of Col. Allyn, during the October session of 1684. May 16, 1676, he was appointed "one of a standing committee to order measures and dispose of such affairs as shall be necessary to attend to in the intervals of General Court. May 12, 1677, confirmed Lieutenant of Wethersfield Trained band; Oct. 14, 1679, Lieutenant of the Troop; Oct. 16, 1681, Captain of the Troop of Hartford Co. From 1683, except during Andros' administration, was Assistant till his death.

      Capt. Samuel was one of the original proprietors of the town of Glastenbury, and owned the lot which was purchased by his father, in 1643, of Samuel Sherman and Richard Gildersleeve, "being 44 rods wide, running back from the river three miles to the great wilderness." It is still owned by his descendants. He was the scholar of the family, and to him, his Father bequeathed all his books, except his "martyr Book," which he gave to his son John. From these two sons, John and Samuel, are descended all of the name of Talcott in America. [1]
