Gold of INIilford, " certain house and house lott Wing in Milford
containing half an acre more or less bounded north south east &
west by comon land . . . for £24- country pay."

May 17, 1713. — Deed, Ebenezer Prindle of Newtcwn to James
Prime of Milford " all my right of lands in Milford Comons as
sequestered land, for 42 shillings in currant money."

Witnesses: Theophilus Baldwin & Enos Prindle.

Newtown town records show, among other early transfers, the
following:

January 19, 1703. — Deed, to Ebenezer Prindle of Milford
" from Lemuel Eells of Milford all my right title and interest in
and unto a place called Newtown as will more fully appear by the
Grant of the General Court." Also on

March 2, 1709- — Deed to Ebenezer Prindle o£ Milford, from
Lemuel Eells of Milford; showing that up to this time he had not
removed to Newtown.

In May, 1708, the Colonial Legislature gave a town grant, leav-
ing it to the people to choose between Preston and Newtown for a
name; and

In March, 1710, the name of Ebenezer Pringle appears as one
of twenty-two proprietors in " An a countt of a Division of Land
laid out by the Committee for Newtown, each lot Contauning 20
acres," etc., when he was allotted five lots on the west side of the
town.

In May, 1711, the town was given the right to elect local offi-
cers, a town clerk, constable, surveyor, etc., and these officers were
obliged to go to Danbury to take the oath of office, and

On September 24, 1711, at a meeting of the proprietors, Eben-
ezer Prindle was appointed surveyor of highways.

In October, 1711, the town was incorporated and granted the
right to elect townsmen, or selectmen, and at a meeting held at the
house of Daniel Foote, December 4, 1711, Ebenezer Pringle, Samuel
Sanford and John Piatt were chosen select men, thus inaugurating
the first town government. He was also re-elected in 1712 and
following years.

In 1711 he was also appointed surveyor of the land purchased
from the Indians.

On December 4, 1711, at the second town meeting held that day,
he was appointed on a committee of three to consider the matter

of establishing a grist mill on Pond brook and to draw articles con-
cerning the same.

Ebenezer Prindle was one of the thirty-seven original proprie-
tors of Newtown in 1710. Each settler had a lot of certain given
dimensions on the main street; and it was recorded on November 18,
1713, that " Ebenezer Prindle hath taken his pitch South westerly
of Chestnut Ridge, length north and south 140 rods, width 80
rods," which was doubtless the original Prindle home lot.

The minutes of following town meetings contain many refer-
ences to Ebenezer as a prominent citizen, as well as to his children,
as time passed on. The land records show many transfers since
then made in the names of Ebenezer, his children and their descend-
ants down to the jDresent time, more than three hundred of which
have been examined for data relating to this branch of the family
for use in this compilation.

By the will of Ebenezer Pringle (signed Prindle) of Newtown,
Conn., dated June 26, 174'(), and probated August 8, 17'iO, he gives to
his "son Joseph one acre of Land adjoining to his house lot, bounded

and my house lot or Home lot, . . . excepting two acres at

Benjamin Prindle, of Greenwich, was appointe'd ad-
ministrator of his estate, with bond dated December 3,
1724; and inventory taken December 18, 1724, by Joseph
Ferris and Ebenezer Renels, valued at .£21-08-03.

In the administration account it is stated that the de-
ceased (who is called brother by the administrator) was
partner with several people in Norwalk, Conn., in build-
ing a mill. He died probably unmarried. ^ ,^,

d. Greenwich, Conn., 1733, leaving children who were
heirs to his father's estate and mentioned in his father's
will, in 1740, but whose names are not known. Inventory
of Benjamin's estate, dated Greenwich, Feb. 6, 1733, and
valued at £3i-7-8, was made by Caleb Knap and Na-
thaniel Huested.

Note. — It has been thought that the Enos Prindle
who m. Deborah Jones of Milford, Jan. 16, 1750, and
had ten children, was a son of Benjamin, but the proof
is still lacking. Orcutt's History of Derby gives an in-
complete record of this family. One of the sons, Enos
Jones, was a soldier of the Revolutionary war, 1777-
1786. Another son, John, served under Gen. Wooster
at the siege of Boston.

This note is here made Avitli the hope that it may
lead to the discovery of further facts relating to the
descendants of Benjamin and the ancestry of this Enos
and John,

appearing on a list of "names of men enlisted at

Dickinson were allowed to have their proportion of
school money among themselves. He was chosen one
