Records indicate he stayed about a year in Dorchester, Mass. Town records of Windsor, Conn. show that on 2 Feb. 1640, he was granted 21 acres from the Plantation adjoining Farmington River on the west side of the Conn. River. This acreage included the site of the first English settlement made in Conn. Also there were several large tracts of land on the east side of the Conn., partly from the town and partly purchased. His house was near the mouth of the Farmington River on "The Island." That area was called "the Island" because when raining, the Connecticut River overflowed, causing it to temporarily become an island.
