    Robert Webster settled in Middletown, CT. upon the organization of the town in Sept 1651, and was chosen Recorder. He married in 1652. In 1653 he served as Middletown representative to the General Court in Hartford. Their first 4 children were born here. He was active in the town & is mentioned in the town records many times. They returned to Hartford in 1658. He was in battle against Indian attackers of the area settlements in 1675. Called King Philip's War, he was paid for his services with a land grant of 300 acres. His will shows his estate to be valued at 670 pounds.The land grant of 300 acres given him by the General Assembly in 1672, it was laid out in the "Nipmug country on the E. side of Quenabaug River SE frm Woodstock"

    His will, dated 10 days before his death(1676) in Hartford, CT is in the Webster Genealogy in full. He bequeathed to his wife Susannah his entire estate and made her sole executrix. As long as she did not remarry, every thing was hers. Otherwise, she would get only one third of the estate. She outlived her husband by nearly 30 yrs and vastly improved the value of the estate.In her wil in 1705, she left her children land and cash: John (dec'd)'s 7 children, 8acres; Jonathon, 8acres; Samuel, 8acres; Robert, 40 acres; Joseph, 15 acres; William, 15 acres. The girls got money. Those 8 acres plots are in what is now downtown Hartford, CT.
