He was a soldier of the Revolutionary war, having
served at various periods each year, as private in
5th Conn. Regt. from May, 1775, to Oct. 1777, then
as sergeant until discharged in the summer of 1780.
He was present at the battle of White Plains, and
in a skirmish at Horseneck, in 1776, he was severely
wounded by a musket ball in the neck. "He was a
good and faithful soldier." From the records of the
Treasury Dept. it is stated that "Peter Prindle, cer-
tificate No. 28,674, late a sergeant in the Revolution-
ary Arm}', was paid a pension at $120 per annum
from March 4, 1831, to January 28, 1840, date of
death. He died at Stratford, Conn., leaving a widow,
Sarah Prindle, to whom the accrued pension was paid."
He lived in Tompkins and Genessee Cos., N. Y., with
some of his children and grandchildren prior to 1834;
visited other children and grandchildren in ]\Iichi-
gan Territory in 1835-6; then returned to Newtown,
Conn. ; and had a grandson, William" Prindle, living
in Bergen, Genessee Co., N. Y., in 1836. John French,
aged 72 years, of Newtown, deposed Dec. 12, 1836,
"I have known Peter Prindle since I was a child.
He is Brother to my Mother." (She was prob. Lucy*'

Joseph- Prixdle (Willicnn^), son of William and Mary (Des-
borough) Prindle, was born in New Haven, Conn., June 11, 1663.
He married August 19, 1686, Mary Brown, daughter of John-
(Francis^) and Mary (Walker) Brown, of New Haven, Mr. James
Bishop officiating, who was born there May 2, 1664.

His father deeded him, in 1689, one acre of land at the N.E.
corner of his homestead, near the corner of what is now Elm
Street and Second Avenue, in W^est Haven, and also one-fourth
acre on the S.W. corner. On December 10, I69I, he bought of
Peter Mallary, Sr., six acres near Elm Street and Union Avenue,
where is now the residence of Mr. Edw. G. Mansfield, and there
built a house. He describes himself as a house carpenter, as dis-
tinguished from a ship carpenter. He sold this shortly after to
Peter Mallary, Jr., and on February 8, 1697-8, bought of Jonathan
Atwater, for 24 pounds, a tract of 88 acres located about two and
one-half miles from West Haven, and which is described in the
deed as lying "upon ye hill commonly called the half way liill as
they goe to Milford." A part of this land is believed to have
been the nucleus of the homestead, which remained in the Prindle
family for 173 years.

The hill naturally took the name of "Prindle Hill," and the
farm came to be called "Scotland," at just what time is now un-
certain, but it was so named and known for at least the last 7-')
years of the Prindle occupancy. He is belicA'cd to have been, with
Rev. Samuel Johnson, one of the founders of the Episcopal Church
in West Haven.

He died :March 18, 1737-8, and in the record of his death is
called "Mr. Joseph Prindle," a title of distinction in tliose days.
A small red sandstone slab marks his grave, the inscription now
being nearly illegible, whereon he is entitled "Serjeant."

In his will, dated December 12, 1728, and probated May 29,
1738, he gives to his wife the use of the whole of his estate, and
after her death to Joseph, he to pay the following legacies:

To Samuel, 100 pounds above what he has had already; Tn
Hepzibah and Mary, 50 pounds each; and to the children of Joel,
40 pounds, or 10 pounds each. His son Joseph, Jr., was named

A few days after his marriage, Joseph received from
his father by deed one-half acre of land — being a part
of his farm — ^with the new house thereon; and by his
father's will he became the owner of the homestead
where he lived and died, leaving an estate of 6S5 pounds,
7 shillings, two-pence. His will, dated Jan. 15, 1770,
bequeathed to his wife one-third of the movable and the
use and improvement of one-third of the real estate. His
daughter Elizabeth was to be allowed to dwell with her
mother while she lived, and afterwards to have, if im-
married, the use of her father's part of the house, which
eventually was to go to Elijah. The remainder of the
estate was to be divided into 15 parts, 4 going to Elijah,
3 to Joseph, and 2 each to the others. Joseph and
Elijah were made executors.

to this country. Soon after his arrival he became
acquainted with many theological students who were
pursuing their studies at Yale College, and with the
faculty of that celebrated institute of learning, and so
became a regular visitor at its examinations and com-
mencements. And it was upon one of these journeys
that the following interesting incident occurred, as
extracted from an old paper now in possession of a

"About a year after his settlement at Phillips
Patent, N. Y., in the fall of 1757, while on his way to
commencement which then took place at the beginning
of the fall term, he became somewhat belated on a
dark and stormy night and lost his way some two or
three miles west of New Haven. While traveling along
he hears a lad whistling in the distance, and ajjproach-
ing him states his difficulty and requests the young
man to set him on the right road. The lad informs
him that the road is quite obscure for a stranger on so
dark and inclement a night, and invited him to his
father's house, and tells him that he and his brothers
will put him on the right track in the morning. Weary
with some sixty miles of travel on horseback since
morning, he follows the young man to his father's
house. Received with the frankness so common in that
day by the lad's parents, the mother and sisters pre-
pared a supper for the stranger guest.

"In the meantime the father finds the stranger to
be from the bonnie land of Scotland, even from the
very neighborhood from which his own grandfather
came to this country. Thus thej^ were old friends at
once, and it was late the next day when our hero was
set on his way to the City of Elms, with the re-
quest that he should call on his return home.

"On the return call it appears a contract of mar-
riage was made between him and the eldest daughter,
Betty Prindle. The honored father and the two eldest
brothers objected, as he was a Dissenter (Calvinistic
Presbyterian), but Betty met their objections by say-
ing that he was little less than a Churchman, since on
his mother's side a birthright Churchman to remotest
generations, and on his father's side by many links.

That Betty's intercession was successful, is shown

by the following copy of their marriage record from
an old Scotch Bible:

"To the glory of God and the profit of the Church
and Commonwealth as we earnestly hope and desire,

"The Rev. Mr. Ebenezer Knibloe, Minister of the
Gospel at Amenia near Sharon, was married with
Miss Betty Prindle, of New Haven, by the Rev. Mr.
Elijah Sill, ^Minister of the Gospel at New Fairfield,
upon Thursday, about 8 o'clock at night, being the
eighth day of June, Anno Domini 1758."

He was for more tl>an 25 years minister of the
Round Top meeting-house, in the south part of Sharon,
Conn. He was a Loyalist during the Revolutionary
war, and is said to have relinquished the ministry in

"He was a sound and sensible man, a good preach-
er, and apparently a sincere christian. They lived at

By the removal of his brothers and sisters, he
became the owner of the homestead in West Haven,
where he lived and died. He was for many years a
warden of Christ Church, and naturally a Loyalist
during the Revolutionary war.

It is related that when the British fleet Avas at
anchor off Oldfield shore, at the time of Tryon's In-
vasion, the Prindle boys carried them some beef. The
West Haven people hearing of this came up to Scot-
land to arrest them, and upon inquiring for the boys
at the door were told they were there or had been
only a short time before. The house was searched,
but the boys, having observed their apjjroach, left by
another door and escaped to the woods. This occurred
in the old home then located across the road from the
present one, but which was pulled down immediately
after building the latter, about 1827.

Bela Hubbard, Sybil Clark, dau. of Samuel Clark,
of Oyster River; d. Mar. 4, 1841; rem. to Sharon,
Conn., in 1814.

He lived more or less with his uncle Charles* at
New Haven, before his marriage. His home was
the old house on the right-hand side of the road
leading to Scotland, and the one which Elizabeth,
his father's sister, was given apart for her life use.
After the death of his father, in 1814, he removed
to Sharon, Conn., induced to go there perhaps be-
cause his sister Lois and her family had gone there
eight years before, and also because his daughter
Sybil, who married Anson Prindle, and his son
Samuel were then living there. He bought a farm
on Gay Street (so-called), about two miles from
the village, where his grandson Charles', son of
Samuel J.", is now living, and owner of the farm
■which still remains in the possession of the family.
