(I) Daniel Brainerd, immigrant ancestor,
was born probably in Braintree, England, in
1641. An old manuscript, bearing date of
January 20. 1786, gives the following account
of him: "Mr. Daniel Brainerd, who by the
best account was stolen from his native town,
Braintree, in the county of Essex in the
island of Great Britain about eight years of
age. Being brought to America, landed up
Connecticut at Hartford, was sold for his
passage to Mr. Wadsworth, farmer in said
town. His conditiones were — to be learned
to read and write and at the time of his free-
dom, twenty-one years old, two suits of
clothes. At the age of twenty-one years he
labored for him one, perhaps two years in
Hartford at farming, and in the year 1661 or
thereabouts came and purchased a right of
land near the centre west of Haddam, twen-
ty-five miles below Hartford, upon the same
river on the west side. Lived first in a cave
covered like a small hut or cottage. We pre-
sume that he came over in the year 1649. It
is said that his name was Brainwood and that
the family owned and employed two spring
looms, likewise that his mother at his emi-
gration was a widow and by a certain letter
sent him by her she married Mr. Grey. In
Haddam he was the first justice of the peace
and commanded great respect, a judicious,
sagacious and penetrating man of superior
sense but no learning". This manuscript is
at present in the possession of the American
Antiquarian Society of Worcester, Massa-
chusetts. His home lot of four acres was
