Thomas, born in Norwich, March 18, 1664, must have attained some
distinction, since he appears on the record toward the close of his life with that title, which in those days had the highest significance, Thomas Huntington, Esq.

He married, Feb. 10, 1686-7, Elizabeth, second daughter of Lieut. William and Elizabeth (Pratt) Backus, one of the most enterprising of the Norwich settlers. He was a professed Christian, and as appears from contemporary records, an active and successful business man. In the fall after his marriage he removed with his cousin Joseph, (23) to aid in laying the foundations of the new town of Windham. Here his name occurs often in the early records, and always honorably. He received from his father, a tract of land, lying to the north of the town of Windham; now lying in the towns of Windham and Mansfield, his own house lot lying in the latter town. Accordingly, at the organization of the Mansfield church, Oct. 18, 1710, Thomas Huntington
enters his name with ...
