    Notes 
    • Richard came with Eliot on the Lion, was at Roxbury, MA, 1631. He went to Connecticut ‘when the great removal was made,’ and suffered greately in the loss of his cattle. He was made freeman 11 Jun 1633, and was among the original proprietors of Hartford.

      In August, 1631, Richard embarked with his wife and five children in the ship Lion, William Pierce, master, for New England. They landed at Boston, and the Lymans settled first at Charlestown. In Oct 1635 they joined a party of about a hundred people to Connecticut to become the first settlers at Hartford. His house was on the south side of what is now Buckinham St., the fifth lot from Main St., westof the South Church and bounded apparently on Wadsworth St. either on the east or west. His name is inscribed on a stone column in the rear of Centre Chruch of Hartford, erected in memory of the first settlers of the city. [2, 3]
