===============================================================

This American from England, fifth Governor of the State of Connecticut, is my ninth great grandfather, (John, Thomas, George, Jonathan I, Jonathan II, William, Zenas, Hiram Zenas, and Great Grandfather Hamilton Chauncey Webster, through his daughter, Mertie Mae Webster/Nielsen, and their daughter, my mother, Margaret Marie Nielsen/Fries. It is my desire to know as much as I can about his life, and that of his wife, my ninth great grandmother, as well, as following the lives of his descendants, of which I am only one. In addition, I will be making every effort to find out more about those Webster ancestors in England, in the fond hope that my husband and I will be able to visit there some day - as each of us has English ancestry!

At a meeting of original proprietors of Lebanon, December 1697, who said that the land had been granted to them November 1, 1695, they set off a quantity of land designated opposite their names, and to John Webster nine acres and three yards. About the same time a "home lot" of fifteen acres was set off to him, bounded north-west by the highway; south-east by the home lot of George Webster, south-west by the small street, and north-east by a highway near the brook. March 1700, and April 1701, more land was "layed" out to him, and July 5, 1710, is recorded another grant of land to him.
