USAGE TIPS

A register of marriages, births and deaths in the families of the first settlers for Simsbury appears on pages 168-175.

"This Register is compiled chiefly from an old manuscript book in the possession of James Loomis, Esq. of Windsor, 'made out May 18, 1674,' from an older book then stated to be full; to which additions were made, during a few years, after 1674. These books unquestionably contain the records kept of these events, by the several clergymen who officiated at Windsor, during their occurrence. The one, from which these extracts are made, is in a mutilated condition, and in many places, illegible. It does not of course contain the births of children born before their parents removed to Windsor, nor, generally, after they settled in Simsbury.

In compiling this Register, a considerable amount of matter, in addition to the above, has been derived from the state records, and from the town records of Windsor and Simsbury..."
