From Woodruff genealogy : Matthew Woodruff of Farmington, Conn. 1640-1, and ten generations of his descendants by Mackenzie, George N., Boston: Everett Press, 1925:

Matthew Woodruff (1) and wife Hannah, came from Hartford to Farmington in 1640-1. He was one of the eighteen proprietors of the Town of Farmington in 1672, having been admitted as a freeman in 1657. (History of Southington, Conn., Page ccivii.) He died at a very old age in 1682. He was a man of considerable wealth for those days. He joined the church March 1st, 1672. His will probated Dec. 13th, 1682, mentions his wife Hannah, who was admitted to the church in Farmington, April 2, 1654, also his will mentions three sons and a daughter named Hannah, wife of Richard Seymour, 2nd, but the Probate Court supplies names of another daughter Elizabeth, wife of John Broughton of Northampton, Mass.
