I have so many Connecticut ancestors, I don’t know where to start! The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about colonial Connecticut is that I have at least two family members who served as governor for the Colony of Connecticut.
First is my 11th great-grandfather, John Webster, who served as governor from 1656 to 1657. He was also the deputy governor from 1655 to 1656. Before and after these roles, he served as a magistrate from 1639 to 1655 and from 1657 to 1659.
