This is one of 100 copies of a special edition printed for the Stonington Historical Society in 1966

Like many of the historical and genealogical books written during the 1800's and early 1900's, this work consists of two main sections: the "History of Stonington," which consumes the book's first 200 pages, and concludes with the 500 page, "Genealogical Register of Stonington Families." Beginning with the original patents in 1631, the author summarizes the history of the town, and addresses the development of the various facets of society, such as their religious institutions, the military component, government, infrastructure, commercial development, the various wars endured, and other historical events. The narrative is filled with the names of residents involved with, or prominent in, the town's sectors or institutions. There are also numerous lists and military rosters of those who served, elected officials, and of individuals involved in the commercial and ecclesiastical development. The second section of the book, the "Genealogical Register of Stonington Families," comprises an alphabetical listing beginning with the immigrant ancestor, and progresses through five or more generations, providing names, birth and marriage dates, and, often times, a narrative of the background and accomplishments of the individual. In addition to this alphabetically arranged register, an index is also available, which exceeds more than 12,000 entries. Following are the immigrant surnames whose genealogies are outlined: Avery, Babcock, Baldwin, Bennett, Bentley, Billings, Breed, Brown, Browning, Burch, Burrows, Chapman, Chesebrough, Clift, Coates, Cobb, Collins, Copp, Cottrell, Davis, Dean, Denison, Eells, Fanning, Fish, Frink, Gallup, Gore, Grant, Greenman, Haley, Hallam, Hancox, Hart, Hewitt, Hinckley, Hobart, Holmes, Hull, Hyde, Kellogg, Main, Mallory, Manning, Mathews, Mason, Miner, Morgan, Noyes, Page, Palmer, Park, Peabody, Pendleton, Phelps, Pollard, Pomeroy, Prentice, Randall, Rhodes, Rossiter, Russell, Searle, Sheffield, Sisson, Smith Stanton, Stewart/Steward, Swan, Thompson, Trumbull, Vincent, West, Wheeler, Wilcox, Williams, Witter, Woodbridge, and York.
