Nathaniel Foote (abt. 1592-1644)
This week, WeRelate looks at the Person Page of Nathaniel Foote, born abt. 1592 in Cambridgeshire, England, son of Robert Foote (est. 1550-1608/9) and his wife Joan Brooke (b. 1555). Nathaniel Foote "The Settler" - came to New England with his wife Elizabeth. He took the oath of freeman at Watertown, Massachusetts Bay on 3 Sept 1634, which, if typical, was within a year of his arrival in New England. Watertown was the principal place from where many of the early Wethersfield, CT settlers came. Nathaniel soon sold his Watertown lands and as early as 1635 arrived at Wethersfield as one the ten original "adventurers". He was among the first to whom land was distributed at Wethersfield, Connecticut in 1640. He was a juryman for the Connecticut Colony's General Court in 1641, 1642 and 1644 and of the Particular Court in June 1643. This Person Page, is a good example of the type of Person Page that you can add to WeRelate for your ancestors. (learn more...)
