The preface of the second indicates:

“This revision of a work, published thirty-four years ago, furnishes a striking illustration of the greatly increased interest felt by the American public in matters pertainig to family history. The original volume, a novice’s work, was then (1859) with the exception perhaps of Bond’s Watertown (Mass.) Genealogies, and Cothren’s History of Ancient Woodbury, Conn., the most considerable work of the kind, as to scope and size, which had then appeared... [S]ince the issue of the original History, more than thirty genealogies of original Windsor families (some being works of great extend and value)... have been issued; and that fully as large a number are now in active perparation; and from these, both in print and manuscript, this Revision has received much incidental help.
