  Notes for Reverend James Fitch, Sr.:
James was a chaplain in King Phillip's War. He founded Norwich, Connecticut, and was the first minister ordained in Saybrook, in 1646.

He studied in Hartford with Thomas Hooker and Samuel Stone (James' brother Joseph married Stone's daughter Mary).

In 1660, a company of Saybrook planters, under the spiritual direction of Reverend Fitch and some of the names and dates were borrowed from the "Ancestors of Peter James Hill and their decendants" list on rootsweb.com. Thanks MDB.

With the assistance of John Mason, purchased land just above the Indian fort.

He apparently spent some energy on helping the Indians. He is mentioned petitioning on behalf of them to the Royal Commission headed by Governor Dudley of Massachusetts. And, of course, he saw it as his mission to convert the heathen to Christianity. But he did not make any great headway until in 1676 when a great drought ruined all the crops. The Mohegans called in the services of a medicine man but all his whirlings and howlings did not draw down a drop of moisture. (Chieft) Uncas then appealed to the white man to see what his God could do. The Reverend Fitch saw his chance. He promised to try if Uncas would give credit where credit was due in case of success. Then the planters set a day for prayer. They prayed and they prayed but not a cloud veiled the Brassy sun until just as it was going down, and then a tiny one drifted across it's face. For several days it was overcast. And then came the deluge. It rained and it rained and it rained. And then it rained some more. Indian stories with Fitch involved continue. During early land grabs, one of Chief Uncas' minnions, somewhat drunk, set fire to the Norwich jail. For retribution, Fitch and company were given an additional 100 acres of Mohegan land. This and other land acquisions gave then quite a parcel. Fitch, Mason and others proceded to survey the rattlesnake-infested land and assign home-lots. It is said that this was the first settlement in America to be surveyed and planned before families actually moved in. (mason2.FBK.GED)
