Capt. Richard2 Seymour (Richard2), of Farmington, Conn., born at Hartford, Conn., died at Farmington prior to 29 Nov. 1710, being killed by the fall of a tree, and was buried on a portion of his own land which was afterwards used as a burial place. He married Hannah2 Woodruff, born about 1648, died at Farmington 16 Sept. 1712, daughter of Matthew1 and Hannah of Farmington. He was a freeman at Farmington in 1669 and one of the eighty-four proprietors of that town in 1672. His wife appears in a list of church members at Farmington, dated 1 Mar. 1679/80, and Richard became a member of the same church on 31 May 1685. He settled in that part of Farmington called Kensington (now the town of Berlin), and became a leader in the settlement. There the Seymour fort was built, within which were the cabins where the inhabitants sought refuge at night during the Indian alarms, Richard Seymour being the captain of the garrison. The well in front of the fort still remains.
