Stiles' Notes on the Grants of Guilford, Connecticut
Uncas’ right was derived to him by marring the daughter of Sebequenish who dwelt Hammonasset. The above agreement was confirmed by deed January 13, 1663 by Uncas and his son, Ahaddon, Sebequanash’s grandson, unto William Leete and Samuel Kitchel in consideration of an Indian coat and shirt cloth to the value of forty shillings, together with remainder that lays between the East River and Hammonasset, except part which was sold by said Uncas long since to Mr. Phoenix and by Mr. Phoenix given Mr. Eliot and by him sold to Guilford inhabitants.
The above grants make up what is now called Guilford, bounded west on Branford line or Stony Creek, east on Killingworth lines or Hammonasset River, south on the sea, running about ten miles north.
1641, at a public meeting of the first planters, agreed that the sole power of administering justice and preserving peace should remain in the hands Robert Kitchel, William Chittenden, John Bishop, and William Leete until a church shall formed from whence others may be chosen. 1643, on the 19th day of the fourth month a church is gathered consisting of seven, viz. Henry Whitfield, John Higginson, Samuel Disborough, William Leete, Jacob Sheafe, John Mipham, and John Hoadley, unto whom the above said feoffees in trust resign the power of governing the plantation; the same is confirmed the planters.
