7. SAMUEL PRINDLE.

Samuel- Prindle {William'^), son of William and Mary (Des-
borough) Prindle, was born in New Haven, Conn., April 15, 1668,
and died in New ]\Iilford, Conn., September 29, 1750. He mar-
ried 1st, by Robert Treat, January 1, 1699, Dorothy Plum, daughter
of John Plum, of Milford, who was born May 26, l660, and died
after 1736; 2nd, March 31, 1747, Sarah Chapyman; removed to
Milford, and thence to New Milford, Conn.

His name appears on a List of Names of the Original Pur-
chasers (109 in number) and Proprietors of the Township of New
Milford, April 1706. He was one of the first twelve settlers of
New Milford which was organized in October, 1712, and wher^.
he appears as a signer of the petition in 1711.

John Noble, Sr., laid out Mr. Prindle's first forty acres, on
Second Hill before r71-i, and on the Right of William Fowler,
which was described as " lying upon the westerh- side of the
Second Hill at a place called Prindle's Pitch, 80 rods on the square,
common land on all sides."

In 17'C1, William Fowler deeded his Right, including this land
improved, and another piece at the south end of the village, to
Samuel Prindle and Joseph Bostwick. ]Mr. Prindle had paid all
the charges against this Right for seven years, by which lie se-
cured one-half the Right to himself. His dwelling stood at the
south end of the village.

He and his wife united with the First Church there in 1720,
but, with six of their children (John, Samuel, Jr., Sarah, Elizabeth,
Dorothy and Daniel), are named in the Record of the Church
book as " Sundry Members who fell away to Quakerisin in ye
year 1731 and 1732." Eight years after he returned to the First
Church, but she had returned in 1736. It appears that the three
sons left the Quakers and united with the Episcopal Churcli in
1743, the records of which show that on [March 17, 1743, it was

" Voted, upon the desire of John Prindle, Samuel Prindle,
David Prindle" (and nine others) "to grant them a piece of land
in the street east of Mr. Samuel Prindle's house, upon the hill near
where the old pound used to stand, sixty feet in length and forty
feet in breadth, in order to build a Church of England upon, and
for no other purpose.

house shall be kept on the land; also that Mr. Nathaniel Bost-
wick, David Noble, and Daniel Bostwick, shall be Committee to set
out the bounds of said land."

His will was dated New Milford, November 24, 174<9, "in the
23d year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord George the 2nd,"
and probated at Woodbury, Conn., October 30, 1750. Sons Samuel,
John and Daniel were named as executors, and beloved daughters
