CD: The Memorial History of Hartford County, Connecticut, 1633-1884 - J. Hammond Trumbull. These two volumes were commissioned to coincide with the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the issue of the Earl of Warwick’s grant, “known as the ‘Old Patent” of Connecticut...that date seemed a fitting occasion for the publication of a ‘Memorial History’ of a county whose earlier history is inseparable from that of the Colony and State.” Volume One, Section Once concentrates on the history of the county’ its earliest history, the river towns, the Colonial Period, the War of the Rebellion, the development of the Bench and the Bar, its medical history, its militia and more. Section two concentrates on Hartford, the town and city. Volume Two covers the history of the other towns in Hartford County: Avon, Berlin, Bloomfield, Bristol, Burlington, Canton, East Granby, East Hartford, East Windsor, South Windsor, Enfield, Farmington, Glastonbury, Granby, Hartland, Manchester, Marlborough, New Britain, Newington, Plainville, Simsbury, Southington, Suffield, West Hartford, Wethersfield, Rocky Hill, and Windsor. A subject, place and everyname index includes both Volumes One and Two and is located at the end of both volumes. The pages are also filled with illustrations of locations and noteworthy citizens.
