Guilford Vital Records Transcript at the Connecticut State Library and NEHGS
"The Vital records of Guilford prior to 1850 are found in two volumes. The entries from the volume known as 'Volume A' were made from a copy of the original.
This alphabetical list was taken from a set of cards based on a copy of the Guilford Vital Records made in 1914 by James N. Arnold, of Providence, R.I. The Arnold Copy, now in the possession of the Connecticut State Library, has not been compared with the original and doubtless errors exist. It is hoped that as errors or omissions are found notes will be entered in this volume and on the cards which are included in the General Index of Connecticut Vital Records also in the possession of the Connecticut State Library.
Hartford, Conn., June, 1924"
Guilford is a town in New Haven County, Connecticut, United States, that borders Madison, Branford, North Branford and Durham, and is situated on I-95 and the coast. The population was 22,375 at the 2010 census. It was named one of the top 100 places to live in the United States by Money magazine in 2005.
First settled in 1639 after being purchased from Native American leader Wequash, Guilford is considered by some to have the third largest collection of historic homes in New England, with important buildings from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. There are five historic house museums, including Dudley Farm and the Henry Whitfield House (1639), the oldest dwelling house in Connecticut and the oldest stone house in North America. The Comfort Starr House (1645–46) is one of the oldest wooden framed private dwellings in Connecticut, and one of the few houses remaining of the original signers who settled Guilford.
