Though young when first here he drew 20 acres in the first land division of Hartford in 1639 and had 590 acres in the division of land in East Hartford in 1666. John of Hartford became one of the largest landowners in CT and received many of the honors of the colony. He was Juror at Hartford, May 1647-9. He removed to East Hartford. He and Godwin became dissatisfied and with others moved to Hadley, MA, which town they settled. Goodwin later returned to Farmington where he died, leaving his large property to his daughter and her husband, making them great wealth.
