Matthew was one of the original company who came, in 1630, to Dorchester, Mass., in the Mary and John, with Maverick and Warham.

He was admitted a freeman 18 May, 1631, and continued in Dorchester till the removal of the company which settled Windsor, of which he was a prominent member. His name appears on the Dorchester records as late as 2 Nov., 1635, and though he was, without doubt, among those who went, in 1635, to prepare their new homes at Matianuck, now Windsor, it is not likely that his wife and children left Dorchester before 18 April 1636.

With many others, he disliked the close union of church and state that characterized the colony of Massachusetts Bay, as well as the growing tendency to establish the government in the hands of a privileged class and to minimize the voice of the people in the conduct of their own affairs. In Windsor, freed from the trammels of a royal charter, he assisted in forming a true democracy, the germ from which American political institutions have grown. 5

He was the second town clerk in Windsor, also the first and for man years the principal surveyor; was a prominent man in the church; evidently was just and exceedingly conscientious in all his public and private transactions and duties, and, as recorded, he often added notes, explanatory or in correction, to the records which have considerable value to present day investigators; if he had only used women's maiden names more often.

In 1654 he compiled A Book of Records of Town Ways in Windsor. He was also the compiler of the Old Church Record, which has furnished the basis for the histories of most of the families of ancient Windsor. 5



From information prepared by the late Donna Holt Siemiatkoski as part of her planned book Foundations of Windsor Connecticut, published in the DFAW Newsletter, Spring 2009:

Every record which has survived in the official records kept by the Town of Windsor and the First Church in Windsor before 1682 comes from the pen of Matthew Grant. These records come from two of his three major extant writings. Copies of these records have been made, and those copies copied, and sometimes merged with other compilations, so that the contemporary researcher may find as many as a dozen different versions of the town and church records, some two or even three generations removed from the two original records. However, no matter which records are consulted, in whatever from or wherever found, only two documents form the basis of our knowledge of the virtually all the births, marriages, deaths, and church admissions in ancient Windsor before 1682. Those two documents are Matthew Grant’s personal record, often erroneously called “the Old Church Record” and Grant’s reports to the secretary of the colony. His third major work, the Matthew Grand Diary, was more of a personal notebook into which went such entries as notes on sermons and notes on surveying.

Matthew Grant first appears in New England in Dorchester where he applied to become a freeman in October 1631. Most authorities suggest that he was on the Mary and John, although no proof or disproof of his passage exists. He himself notes that he was a member of the church of Dorchester and was one of those who removed to Windsor with Rev. John Warham in the general removal in 1636, and that he was born on Tuesday, October 27, 1601. He was Windsor’s first surveyor but did not assume to the position of Town Clerk until 1652 after the first town clerk, Dr. Bray Rossiter removed to the Guilford. Grant was never the clerk of the church and had no known official duties in the church of which he was a member in full communion at the time of its removal to Windsor.

Grant appears to have been a born writer, making notes on his spare surroundings with scarce ink and paper. In his “Diary,” more accurately called a “Notebook,” he has recorded notes on sermons by the Revs. Warham, Huit, Hooker, Stone, and Moxon, as well as instructions for surveying and other notes for his own use. Very little of the “Diary” has information of genealogical value, other than as historic reference to the prominent people named.

When Windsor’s first town clerk, Dr. Bray Rossiter, removed to Guilford in 1652, the townsmen probably turned to Matthew Grand because of his probably well-known habit of writing things down. Grant faithfully fulfilled his annual duty by recording births, deaths, marriages, and land transactions and forwarding his list to the Secretary of the Colony in compliance with an early order of the General Court. Grant complied with this order more thoroughly than any other contemporary town clerk, as may be seen in the publication Births, Marriages, and Deaths returned from Hartford, Windsor, and Fairfield, in which the returns from Windsor are by far the most extensive. The published reports are continuous from around 1660 to within a few months of his death on December 16, 1681. He also made a concerted effort to discover events before his tenure began and to record these as well. His contemporary recordings and his recordings of previous events were entered into two different volumes of the Colony Land Records, volumes 1 and 2, respectively.

Finally, Grant began to compile what is more accurately called the Record of Families, probably around 1668. An examination of the record suggests that Grant was compiling a list of church members and their baptized children in response to the question of the Half-Way Covenant, which was being debated in Windsor as well as in the rest of New England. His project appeared to grow from that base to being a compilation of the families of Windsor, a project too large for the more narrowly-defined task of town clerk. In 1677 Grant discovered an “ould book” in which were written notations of events from “our beginning” to May 31, 1640, including a day by day account of the flood of March 1639, an account which reads like a contemporary account of the flooding of the Farmington and Connecticut Rivers near “the Island,” now the site of the Loomis Chaffee School. These records, which pre-date the appointment of Rossiter as town clerk, are all that remain from the earliest days of Windsor, and have been preserved for us by Matthew Grant. After recording the text of that discovery, Grant appears to have put an even more intense effort into his catalogue of Windsor’s families. What began as the recording of vital events as town clerk expanded into a catalogue of church members and their families. Finally, Grant’s natural penchant for recording took over and inspired him to write down the details of the births, marriages, and deaths of each family, “as I could best determine.” Grant probably made many preliminary notes over the years, for a variety of purposes, as his reference to an “ould book” with “no room” suggests. In so doing Grant unwittingly became the first Windsor genealogist, as he recorded the families he had watched grow as his own life drew to a close.

Grant apparently completed his life’s work, the only surviving record of the births, marriages, deaths, and church admissions of the people of early Windsor, within weeks of his death at the age of eighty. The book was his own personal work and stayed with his family’s possessions. Although he lived with his son John at the time of his death, the book apparently came into the possession of his eldest son Samuel’s family. Both of these branches of the family had moved to the East side of the River at the close of the century. For awhile the book was in Ellington (“Ellenton”), where more historic material was added by a later owner. Stiles suggests that the book passed to Samuel’s granddaughter, Mary Grant, who married Peletiah Birge. The couple moved back to Windsor and into a house on what is not Palisado Avenue. They moved again to Pine Meadow, now Windsor Locks, leaving various items behind in the house. As Stiles notes, the Birge house was torn down around 1800. Oliver Ellsworth Jr., a Grant cousin on both sides of his family, poked through the remains of the house, found the ancient book, by now over 120o years old, realized what the manuscript was, and rescued it from the rubble. This promising young antiquarian, a Yale graduate who was his father’s secretary on his famous mission to Napoleon’s court, would have been his father’s biographer. If this second Oliver Ellsworth, who died in 1805 at the age of 24 of “slow decline”, accomplished nothing else with his short life, his finding and rescuing of his ancestor’s irreplaceable personal notebook has secured his place in the history of Windsor’s history.

The original of Matthew's Bible is located at the Connecitcut State Library and pdf copies are available at their web page. The Reports to the Colony were entered into the Colony Land Records and were published by Edwin Stanley Welles as Births, Marriages and Deaths Returned from Hartford, Windsor and Fairfield. The "Old Church Record" original is at the Connecticut Historical Society and the State Library holds a typescript.
