8. ELEAZER PRINDLE.

Eleazer- Prindle {\Yilliani^), son of William and Mary (Des-
borough) Prindle, was born in New Haven, Conn., June 7, 1669;
married Elizabeth Andrews, daughter of Thomas Andrews, of Mil-
ford, formerly of Farmington, Conn.; and died abt. 1713. He
settled in Milford, at a place called Burwell's farms, and was one
of the original proprietors of New Milford, in 1712. He was a
blacksmith and preacher.

Eleazer was left the homestead in consideration of his taking
care of his parents in their latter days, and was twenty years old
when his father died. In 1697 he and his mother sold ten acres
from the north end of the homestead to Joseph Smith. His mother
died probably about 1700-1701, and in 1702 Eleazer sold the house
and remaining land, of seven and one-half acres, to Isaac Jones
and Gershom Brown, of New Haven.

This Isaac Jones had an interesting ancestry, which it may be
well to refer to in this connection here. His father was William
Jones, son of one of the judges that condemned Charles I. to
death, and himself deputy governor of this Colony for over thirty
years. His mother was Hannah, daughter of Theophilus Eaton.
Jones sold his one-half interest in the place, in 1705, to Brown, in
whose family (with possibly the exception of one transfer) it re-
mained, without subdivision, for 150 years.

The year before he sold the remainder of the homestead, Eleazer
had taken steps toward locating in Milford, influenced doubtless
by the settlement there of his brothers Samuel and Ebenezer.
In 1701 he bought four and one-half acres in Oyster Meadow
Plain of Jeremiah Canfield, and in 1702 as much more of John
Ford in the same neighborhood, and probably married soon after.

Administration on his estate was granted to his widow, Eliza-
beth, July 6, 171s. The inventory included the house and barn
and land in Milford, <£150; land in Wallingford bounds, 83 acres,
<£70; "spelling book and sermon book, 4 shillings," etc., the es-
timated value after payment of debt* being about £275.

The widow Elizabeth married, 2nd, and before February 3,
1714, Mr. John Bronson, one of the first settlers of Waterbury,
Conn. He was appointed guardian of the children for their father's

Oranage by Stratford River, wliich they inherited from their ma-

in 1726, where he d. AprillO, 1782. She was b. May
16, 1710, and d. Nov. 24, 1798, ae. 88.

Upon his mother's removal to Waterbury, she brought
her son Jonathan with her and bound him as an ap-
prentice to Isaac Bronson, of Waterbury, to learn the
art or trade of shoe making and tanning. His name ap-
pears on a list of petitioners to the General Court, Oct.
4, 1732, for exemption from the old parish rates during
the winter months, and the privilege of having a min-
ister at their own expense during this time, etc., which
was granted and the privilege allowed for four years;
also, May, 1738, on a list of heads of families included
within the limits of the new society with the number of
persons in each, by which it appears that his family com-
prised seven persons at this time; also, in 1742, on a
list of subscribers to a building fund for an Episcopal
Church; also, April 20, 1743, on a list of persons to
whom John Judd conveyed a lot of ground for the new
church, donated by him; and also, April 22, 1744, on
a list of petitioners to the Assembly for parish priv-
ileges to enable them to lay taxes for building a church,
which was not granted.

In Oct., 1752, he was appointed by the General As-
sembly Lieutenant of " the Company or trainband,
parish of Westbury, in the town of Waterberry."

March 25, 1731, and d. April 17, 1789.

His gr. stone contains also the following inscrip-
tion: "Abigail Prindle, Died June 3, 1812, ae. 75,"
who may have been his second wife.

He was the Rev. Eleazer Prindle who helped to
establish the Episcopal Church in Waterbury, and his
name appears on a list of " the Churchman of Water-
bury," in 1764, entering into an agreement "to hold
public worship in Westbury on those Sundays when
there was no preaching in Waterbury," until a church
could be built there.

Waterbury, who was b. Oct. 29, 1755, and d. Oct.
22, 1840; d. Aug. 25, 1833, ae, 80; and both were
buried at Gunntown.

He entered Yale College in 1772, graduated as
A.B., July 17, 1776, and received the degree of
A.M. in Sept., 1779- He prepared for the ministry,
and was admitted to the Holy Orders of Deacon in
St. John's Church, Stamford, by the Rt. Rev. Bishop
Seabury, in June, 1787, and was ordained Priest
in St. James' Church, Xew London, by the same
Bishop, Feb. 24, 1788.

When in deacon's orders he officiated as lay
reader in the Episcopal Church at Westbury at
a salary of £30, "to be paid in beef, pork, butter,
tallow, wool, flax, or any sort of grain," and con-
tinued as rector until his resignation in 1804. He
was for several years rector of the churches at
Naugatuck and Oxford, having been the first min-
ister of the parish of St. Peter's at the latter
place, and was rector of Trinity P. E. Church, Sey-
mour, Conn., in 1815.

It is said of him that " he was a most worthy
and indefatigable man, and it is related as an in-
stance of his punctuality in the discharge of duty.

that on one occasion, when he was to preach at
Waterbury, he found the Naugatuck much swollen
by a flood, and rather than fail in his apjDointment
he plunged in on his horse and swam the stream.
He was noted for a sound and forcible intellect
and stern integrity, and was orthodox and firm
in principles. He was a useful minister."

Upon a memorial tablet in St. John's Episcopal
Church, Waterbury, is written the following in-
scription :

Commemorative of

the faithful labors

in this parish of

The Rev. James Scovill

and

The Rev. Chauncey Prindle

A.D. 1759-1804

Their Record is on High



Upon his gr. stone in Gunntown is the following
inscription :

Sacred
to the memory of

the Rev.

Chauncey Prindle

who died Aug. 25 1833

AE 85

The deceased was a graduate of Yale College
and received his ordination to the ministry in the
Protestant Episcopal Church from the hands of
the Rt. Rev. Samiiel Seabury. For a period of
nearly twenty years his time was devoted to the
united charges of Christ Church, Watertown, and
St. Peter's Church, Plymouth. Subsequently at
different periods he had the pastoral charges of the
churches in Oxford, Salem and Bethany.

He lived to exercise the ministry for a period
of fifty years.

And this stone is erected by his remaining friends
and parishioners as a token of their high regard for
his character, his zeal, his fidelity, his talents and
his worth, both as a man and as a minister.
"Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord."

inhabitants presented a memorial in the case of
Hezekiah Brown:

That he had said that the Congress ought to be
punished for putting the country to so much cost and
charge, for they did no more good than a 23arcel of
squaws ; that it was an unnecessary expense, and the
Assembly had no right to do it; that Boston had
wrongfully undertaken to quarrel about the tea, and
we had no hand in it; tliat our General Assembly was
as arbitrary as the Pope of Rome when it cashiered

to the Northbury Compan^^ which was so disaifected
toward the cause of American liberty that the Co. was
dissolved and these two men cashiered), and that he
would not go one step further for the relief of the
people of Boston than he was obliged to go."

Two months later, laws were enacted that any per-
sons defaming Congress or the General Assembly
should be deprived of arms and office, and should
be punished by fine and imprisonment or disfran-
chisement. He was tried and deprived of hold-
ing any further military office. He left Waterbury
not long after and joined the British in New York,
where he received a Captain's commission, and died
there Aug. 27, 1777.

His wife, the dau. of Lieut. Jonathan Prindle, re-
mained loyal to the cause of the Colonies, and the
real estate of her husband, which had been confiscated
because of his giving help to the enemy, was re-
stored to her.
