Pethus was the son of Turramuggas, successors of Sequassen, the grand sachem of Suckiaug, and proprietors of his territory. In 1640, Pethus signed an agreement with English settlers which devised to them land around what became Hartford, Connecticut. He and his son Ahamo reconfirmed the deed ten years later. Pethus most likely died before the summer of 1670 as his name is not found among the signers of a treaty at that time. However, since it does appear on a 1727 deed -- over 100 years from when we suppose his birth to be -- we conjecture that this later Pethus is a different person.
