He settled in Wethersfield, Hartford County, Connecticut ca. 1636-1637. He married ca. 1638 to Elizabeth Salmon, sister of William Salmon, of Hashamomuck/Southold,Long Island. He died 13 November 1681, at Hartford. [View descendant tree]

In 1636 (or 1637), Thomas Curtis received 20 1/2 acres of land in the division of the Little West Field. In 1640 he is listed in Stiles as having land west of John Nott, who had 3 acres at the SW corner of Sandy Lane and High Street.

In 1641 he bought of John Livermore a house and 6 acres of land "bd. by the High St. Common, W.; the Meadow lands of John Whitmore and John Livermore E.; the highway next the River [now The Cove] N.; ho-lot of William Butler S." This land is designated as lot B in our analysis of the Meadow Row lots. In 1650 he was given 1/4 acre "by the church" for a building lot; this was located "at the extreme N. end of the Common, bd. N. and E. by way to the Landing Pt.; W. by Thos Wickham's; S. by Mr. John Blackleach's ho-lot." The town gave him additional land adjoining William Butler's in 1656.

In 1660 he bought from Richard Montague two adjoining 3 acre home lots farther south on Meadow Row, also on the east side of High Street (designated as Lots E and F in our analysis of the Meadow Row lots.) In 1662 he sold 135 acres of land, on the east side of the river, to Thomas Wickham. In 1670 he sold the home lot at the extreme north end of High Street to his son John2 Curtis ,who then sold it in 1673 to Theophilus Sherman. In 1671 he bought land from John Blackleach on the south side of Jordan Lane. In 1673 he was taxed to pay for the "Five Mile" purchase.

Although is is probable that Thomas Curtis lived at the North end of High Street, at the Common, from 1641 on (first on the lot purchased from John Livermore, then, sometime between 1660 and 1670, on the lot(s) purchased from Richard Montague), he continued to own property SW of Sandy Lane, between Sandy Lane and Back Lane. In 1649 the Town gave Enock Buck 2 acres of land for a homestead there; it was a triangular piece, bordered "W. by Leonard Dix's ho-lot; S. by Thos. Curtis; N. by highway to Hartford; E.; 'comes to a point about 5th part in Curtis' fence.'" In 1681, Isaac2 Curtis received in the distribution of his father's estate "the homelot by Enock Buck's."

On 21 May 1657 he declared himself to be past 60 years of age and was duly relieved by the General Court from the duty of "training, watching, and warding." He served as a juror in sessions of the Particular Court, at Hartford, on two occasions.

Events involving the Salmons at Hashamomuck, on Long Island, affected Thomas Curtis at Wethersfield, between 1658 and 1663:



Hashamomuck, on Long Island, had been settled as early as 1636 or 1637; one Matthew Sunderland had obtained a grant on June 18, 1639, from James Forrett, agent to William Alexander, First Earl Stirling, to 1600 acres of land there; grant confirmed by Lord Stirling on August 20, 1639. Sunderland m. Kathryn (_____); he d. about 1642-45; William Salmon very soon m. the widow and took full possession. In 1645 Salmon b. Indian title to the place from Paukhamp. In 1649 he sold 3/4, reserving 1/4, the neck on the bay, for himself.--some 400 acres.

By 1st wife Kathryn he had one son and 3 daughters--John, Marie, Rebecca, and Sarah. Kathryn (_____) (Sunderland) Salmon then d. (prior to 1654). William Salmon then m. Sarah Horton, dau. of Barnabas Horton of Southold, by whom he had 2 daughters Hannah & Elizabeth. Salmon then d. ca 1657, leaving the widow Sarah Horton Salmon and 6 minor children, four of whom, John, Marie, Rebecca, and Sarah, were true orphans, their natural mother and natural father both deceased. These orphans were heirs with rights to property, each child to about 44 acres at Hashamomuck neck, if equally divided.

The widow Sarah (Horton) Salmon soon remarried, on 2 December 1657, to John Conklin, Jr. of Southold. Thereafter, as early as March 1658/59, there is evidence in the records of conflict between John Conklin, Jr. and neighbor John Corey, (who was married to Ann Salmon, sister to William and Elizabeth Salmon), and shortly thereafter John Corey deserted his land, which John Conklin then claimed as his own under forfeiture; "Law suits followed." This proved to be but the opening round in a protracted contest for control of Hashamomuck neck. But it was a one sided battle--John Concklin, "as was his wont persisted," and in the end "by some means secured the whole of Hashamomuck neck for himself."


At some point, three of the Salmon orphans, John, Marie, and Sarah, went to Wethersfield to live with their Aunt Elizabeth Curtis, in the household of Thomas Curtis. (Rebecca Salmon is not mentioned in these records. Perhaps she was taken into the household of her Aunt Ann Corey.) This may have been as early as 1659; and the children were still in Wethersfield in 1663, when Thomas Curtis, as guardian, obtained a deed to their land to hold in trust for them, from John Scott, of Ashford, who had been granted magisterial powers throughout the whole of Long Island by John Winthrop. In the 17th Century, if orphans had property, it was "standard operating procedure" for a guardian to hold the deed to their property until their majority, at which time the courts routinely allowed the guardian to deduct his expenses from the estate. In this case, it was impossible for Thomas Curtis to secure title to the children's property until 1663.

The Salmon children, however, did return to Long Island shortly therafter, where the following, dated 22 February 1663, is in evidence:



Whereas our ffather William Sallman in his life tyme did declare that his brother in law Thomas Curtis of weathersfield should not have the educacon of any of his children--his longe forbearance of looking after us manifested little love to us. These may signifie to whom it may consern, that we whose names are here under subscribed have made choyce of John Conckline Junr to be our Gardian, haveing experience of his ffatherly love to us and hereby declare all other Gardianship by authority of any court to be null.

Witness the subscripcon of our names, the two and twentyeth day of ffebruary 1663.

John Salmon

John Conkelyn Sener. Mary (her mark) Solmon

Richard Curtis (his mark) Sara (her mark) Solmon

Thomas Osman

Jacob Conklyne

As far as can be determined, Thomas Curtis never received payment for "his longe forbearance."

Thomas Curtis died 13 November 1681 in Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut. He died intestate. According to an inventory taken 9 December 1681 by Nathaniel Boreman, Samuel Butler, and William Warner, his estate amounted to £717-13-09.

The Connecticut State Library has the Hartford Probate District Records which show the distribution of his estate (1681, No. 1526):



The distribution of the estate of Thomas Curtis of Wethersfield, deceased, made by us underwritten according to an order from the honored Court at Hartford, March 8th 1681 is as followeth viz (____?)

Samuel Curtis resided in Wethersfield and was a weaver. He was a surveyor in 1677. His father gave him three acres of land with a house on it, off from the north side of the homestead, in 1674 (This would have been the home lot designated as Lot E in our analysis of the Meadow Row lots). He bought of Isaac Stiles his share of Mile-in-Breadth, in 1673; of Stephen Chester, his share, in 1678. He died 26 November 1688, age 42 years.

Although administration was granted on his estate February 1689 by the (Andros) Court of Special Sessions, it was not distributed until 1706/7.
