(Colonial Families in The U.S.) The grave of Margaret is the oldest grave in Clinton. He was representative from 1658 - 1661 for Windsor and often times for Killingworth. (Gen. Dict. of New Eng. Settlers, v2, p318)George & Edward were the first settlers at Poquonnock in Windsor. George was made a freeman in 1654.

Edward Griswold, b1607; d1691 - came with Rev. Mr. Hult from England; was in Windsor 1639; removed to Killingworth, CT, called then Kenilworth,in honor of his native place. From this manner of naming it Kenilworth after the home of Edward and Matthew Griswold in England, a fair inference is that Edward Griswold was the most prominent man of the little colony, especially as he was the first delegate to the General Court, a Justice of the Peace in Windsor and first Deacon of the Church. Edward Griswold was 64 years old when he went to Killingworth.He had twenty-nine acres in Windsor granted him, bound south and east by the brook, east by river and Indian Reservation (Indian Neck). He removed with the first settlers to Hamonoscett; George and Joseph had the homestead. Edward Griswold was Deputy from Windsor, 1658-1662. In 1667, he enrolled as Deputy,also Commissioner of Kenilworth.In 1674, granted two hundred acres of land at north end of Lyme. Mr. Edward Griswold, Deputy for Killingworth in 1678, also nominated for assistant and as commissioner; represented his town in every court from 1678 to 1689; was during this period repeatedly made Commissioner.(Public Records of C onnecticut,-1678 - 1689). He was first Deacon of the Church of Killingworth. In 1678, the [p293] County Court appointed a committee to see what could be done toward a Latin school at New London for the County New London. Norwich, Stonington, Saybrook, Lyme and Killingworth were represented by one man each. Mr. Edward Griswold represented Killingworth.(Colonial Families in The U.S.)

In 1681, the General Assembly appointed John Tully & Abraham Post to lay out several grants of land to Edward Griswold of Kennelworth, & Matthew Griswold of Lyme, which was laid out to them jointly in the north part of Lyme. (Connecticult puritan Settlers, 1633-1845)

The Biographical Cyclopædia of American Women, V II, Daughters of America; or Women of the Century Griswold, Edith Julia Educational Work, p 29, Edward Griswold, born 1607, came from Kenilworth, Warwickshire, England, to Connecticut, with the first company to plant the flag on the shores of the Connecticut River.

Taken 2 October, 1704, by Timothy Phelps, Joseph Griswol and Benajah Holcomb. - An agreement made by the widow and children of George Griswold, Sen., late of Windsor, decd., for the division a nd settlement of his estate: Whereas, by the overruling providence of God our hond. father, George Griswold, Sen., of Windsor, hath departed this life and left a considerable part of his estate not made over unto his wife and children by will or otherwise, according to law, but left a draught drawn, unsubscribed or witnessed, wherein is expressed how he would have sd. estate distributed to his sd. wife and surviving posterity hereinafter nominated: We therefore whose names are subscribed, being heirs or le g atees unto the estate fore mentioned, for the settlement of sd. estate and maintenance of peace and love one with another, have come to this agreement with and amongst ourselves, if it shall please the Hond. Court to grant us a confirmation: 1st. We agree in general that what our honoured father’s will was, as expressed in the writing fore mentioned, excepting in some few particulars, shall stand. It is agreed that Daniel Griswold, eldest son, shall, after our honoured mother’s decease, have one parcel of m arsh land in Simsbury, under the mountain; also one parcel lying in the bounds of New London, and also 1/2 of the upland which was John Tinker’s, which belonged to our father, and that which was our father’s part at the Grist Mill. We also agree that sd. Daniel shall have a peice of woodland in Quarry Field. Whereas, it is said a parcel of land in New London bounds, it seems, was a mistake, but it is our father’s right to a parcel of land made over to him by our grandfather Griswold as a grant from the General Court in Killingworth Town. And that Thomas Griswol shall have out of our father’s estate 1/2 of the upland belonging to Tinker’s farm, 1 acre. We agree that George Griswold shall have a parcel of land bounding south and east by Ensign Griswol, and from the highway 100 rods in length, and in breadth 5 rods, with the house which stands on it. We further agree that John Griswol shall possess one parcel of land bounded southerly by Andrew Moore, northerly by the way which leads to Simsbury. Also agreed, that Benjamin Griswold, besides what land he hath in possession, formerly given to sd. Benjamin by deed, shall have also in reversion one parcel of land in the Third Meadow. Also agreed, that Edward Griswold, son to Edward Griswold decd., shall have 20 paid to him, and the gr. daughter Abigail Griswold 40 Shillings, and to have the south end of the house called Benjamin’s house. Also, that the two daughters, Mary Cooly and Deborah Moore, shall have their portion out of the estate now divided. It is also further agreed, that our honoured mother, Mary Griswold, shall have during her natural life the use and improvement of the dwelling house, barn, and orchards and lands which our father had in possession at his death, with the moveable estate and household g oods, cattle, sheep, swine and corn, and our father’s part of the Corne Mill, or what shall be meet for her comfortable subsistence, while she liveth. Now, that this is our mutual agreement, wee signify by our subscribing our Hands and fixing our Seals. Attest: Matthew Allyn, Justice, William Whiting, Clerk. Mary Griswold, Daniel Griswold, Thomas Griswold, George Griswold, John Griswold, Benjamin Griswold, Edward Griswold, Abigail Griswold, Joseph Cooly, Thomas Moore, And we do all agree to abide by the awarde of Joseph Wadsworth, Matthew Allyn and Joseph Barnard. 9 November, 1704. - Court Record, Page 61-10 November, 1704: This Court grant Adms. unto Daniel and George Griswold.
