Capt. Charles Case1,2

b. 1 July 1723, d. 17 October 1808
     Capt. Charles Case was born on 1 July 1723 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.3 He was the son of John Case and Abigail Humphrey. Capt. Charles Case married Phoebe Griswold, daughter of Shubael Griswold and Phebe Cornish, before 1748.3 Capt. Charles Case died on 17 October 1808 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT, at age 85.3 He was buried at Hopmeadow Cemetery, Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.

(Charles Case) Charles, the third son of John, was born in his father's home at Terry's Plain in Simsbury. He lived an dworked all his life in Simsbury except for some time spent away on military duty."

"Charles apparently served in military action during the French and Indian War which broke out in 1756 and acheived the rank of Captain."

"It is possible that Charles served in the Revolutinary War, although there is no clear verification of his participation and no record that he made an application for a veteran's pension. This, however, is not proof that he did not serve, since a majority of the people at Simsbury, including both veterans and civilians, were opposed to any pensions or other rewards for service in the war."

Despite owning much real property during his lifetime, "Charles was eighty years old in 1803 and apparently destitute. He died on October 17, 1808, at the age of eighty-five and, as far as is kkown, he left no will or inventory of personal property. He apparently had already given his home lot to his son, shubael, with whom he had lived druing the last years of his life."

"Charles lived a long life and he saw many momentous changes both inSimsbury and in the nation. He witnessed the defeat of the French in Canada and the removal of that trheat from the north. He also saw the separation of the colonies from England and the birth of a new nation. He was middle-aged when the industrial revolution began, but lived to hear about the first steam engines and the successful voyage of the first steamboat on the Connecticut River. He probably knew of John Fitch, born in East Windsor, fifteen miles east of simsbury, who conducted the first successful steam-powered voyage on August 22, 1787. Charles was still alive in 1807 when Fulton made his memorial run up the Hudson river. he may also have known of Eli Whitney, living a few miles away, who constructed the first cotton gin in 1793."

"Close at home, the area near Salmon Brook and Turkey Hill in the northern part of town became the separate community of Granby. In 1798, he also saw the first mail route established between Hartford and Simsbury."

Ruth Cost Duncan cites the Simsbury Vital Records. The burials of Charles and his wife, in the Hopmeadow Cemetery in Simsbury, were paid for by the town. Charles was a captain in the Revolutionary War.

Humphrey Pinney1,2

b. 20 November 1605, d. 20 August 1683
     Humphrey Pinney was baptized on 20 November 1605.3 He was the son of John Pinney and Johanna (?) Humphrey Pinney married Mary Hull. Humphrey Pinney died on 20 August 1683 at age 77.

Humphrey was originally thought to have come to America in the Mary and John with the Rev. Mr. Warham's company; 1630. However, Robert Charles Anderson and Judith L. Osborn have challenged that, finding that he most likely arrived on the ship Thunder in July 1633.3


Humprey Pinney appears in the Massachusetts Freemen List on 14 May 1634 even though he had attained his majority by 1630. 3


Edmond Pinney's (Humprey's uncle) will was dated 7 December 1631 and proved 7 February 1631/02. In it he named Humprey as executor. Humprey was therefore likely still in England during this time. 3


Humphrey's father, John, made a will dated 5 April 1632 that gave no indication that Humphrey was absent. 3


The very first record of Humphrey that we see in Massachusetts Bay is as a grantee of 4 acres at Dorchester Neck on 5 August 1633. Judith Osborn concludes: "In view of the overwehlming proponderance of evidence, we are compelled to conclude that Humphrey Pinney made his first and only passagae to New England on an unnamed ship from Weymouth, England which arrived at Dorchester, MA on or about 24 July 1633." 3


He was an original member of the Dorchester Church, moved to and settled at Windsor in 1635. His residence was on the East side of the main street, about a mile and a quarter North of the present Congregational Church on a lot North and adjoining Gov. Haynes lot, which lay between Deacon William Gaylord's lot and "Mr." Pinney's lot.
