Woodruff, Matthew, 1616 - 1682

Born in England, the immigrant Matthew Woodruff (1616-September 6, 1682) became one of the first English settler-colonists of Farmington.  In his will, an inventory indicated that at that time he owned eight acres land in the Little Meadow, four and a half acres in the Great Meadow, and other property in the "ought lands" to his children.
