It is hoped that this will be the final surviving record once all mergers possible have been completed. THANK YOU!! See also BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: See sketch by Donald Lines Jacobus and Edgar Francis Waterman in "Hale, House and Related Families..." (Reprinted by Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore, MD, 1978, and first published in 1952 by The Connecticut Historical Society, pages 763/9) and also data included in "A Story of One Line of Treats from England to Connecticut, 1454 - 1781," by Elizabeth Thompson Schack (privately published, New York, NY, 2000). He was baptized under the name of Trott, married under the name of Trett; his children were baptized by the names of Trott and Tratt, and he was called Treat when he died. He signed documents with the spellings of Treat and Treate. The family lived in the hamlet of Trendle (now in the parish of Trull) in the large parish
      of Pitminster, less than five miles south of Taunton, in Somerset. Richard was a "well-rooted and well-to-do countryman," according to Somerset historian Joan D. Peden. At the time, he owned one messuage and one virgate of land as well as a cottage and its appurtanances in the tithing of South Trendle. He owned other lands in addition, as well as two cottages with courtyards. The main residence of the family, known as Amberd House, still stands in Pitminster [in hamlet of Trendle, now Trull]. It was purchased by his grandfather in about 1533 and was inherited by Richard from his father Robert. Once settled in America, Richard disposed of the property. Here all of his children were born. He emigrated to New England after the baptism of his youngest child in June 1637 and was living in Wethersfield, CT by 1641 when the entry of his land holdings was made there. He had a large tract of land at Wethersfield known as the "farm of Nayog," which bordered on the Conneticut River. He bought at least seven other dwelling places and additional lots of land, later either selling them or giving some of them to his children. In 1643 he was a juror and he served as Deputy for Wethersfield to the General Court at the sessions starting in Apr 1644 and going through 1657 and was Assistant of the Colony from May 1658 to May 1665. Richard Treat was named as a Patentee of the Royal Charter of Connecticut in 1662. He made his will on 13 Feb 1668/9 and the inventory of his estate was taken on 3 Mar 1669/70. He had amassed an estate
      of considerable size for those times. [For additional information, view the biographical sketches about Richard Treat or Trott attached as stories to this record (9M4J-G4V).]
