    Notes 
    • Ezekiel Sanford was an Englishman. By profession he was a Civil Engineer and doubtless came to America in the employ of the English Government. The old stockade fort at Saybrook was planned by him and erected under his supervision. He subsequently settled in the town of Fairfield, and built there, at his personal expense, the first grist mill erected in New England, receiving by way of reward for his enterprise the patent for an extensive tract of land.

      10 Oct 1669- Ezekiell Sanford & Cornelius Hull were listed among the "names of ye freemen of towne of Fairefield." [1]
