13 ABOUT piNNiPIACS The Indians Who Were Here Before the Settlers of 1838. VERY EARLY NEW HAVEN The, Flcplnnlngs of the, Colony Hero Tntercsllngly Told in file Teach er' Journal. Before the pntlement In W3S, ther ivfis In the region which we now call New Haven, a tribe of Indians railed tho Qulnnlplac, anil near nelKhhnra ot tho Pnquot.8 and .MoheRans. Qulnnlplac wm the land at the head of the New Haven hnrhnr, about the mouths of tho Qulnnlplac and 'Mill rl vol's, and John Davenport In describ ing tho place fiild that the slKht of the place, so pleaded tho captnln of tha hlp that ho called It "Fair Iin.von." The tribe found hero had been re duced In number so that at this time they numbered about forty-six flpfhtlng men, and, Including squaws and papooses, about 150 persons. The Fe quots and Mohawks preutly distressed thorn at times by sending out small bands to attack them. Thus reduced In number and suffering from those at tack", thoy were willing to place them selves under tho protection of tha English settlers. They had several camps on each side of tho harbor and located on high pround above the meadows. Shell heaps, stone weapons of war nnd kitchen utensils have been found as evidence. One of their camps, on the western part of the harbor, was Just east of Savin Rook and others were nt Oyster point and Hamilton park. On tho east side their camps must have b"en from Qulnnlplac bridge along Ferry street and east of Tomllnson bridge on Raynham near the electric railroad station. Those camps were all on sunny hill side clearings, surrounded by n thickly wooded country. They were near springs of fresh water and bail corn and bean plantation, the cultivation Of which was done by the squaws. They bordered the harbor and rivers, which gnvo an abundant supply of shell and scale fish. The former they took from the snd banks and flats at low tide, the latter by means of brush wires or traps, the use of which the Indians taught tho English. Thoy were also taught by the Red Men the art of spearing eels through the Ice; and also how to catch clams with the feet by the treading process. The most Important occupation of the Indians In time of peace was hunting for animals, which was done by means of bows and arrows, spears, clubs, stones and spring -poles, with traps, snares and pits for fur animals. KAR1T PKTTTKMKVT. Davenport nnd Knton. Theophllus Eaton and John Daven port, bad been schoolmates In England. Davenport became an able minister. and Eaton a successful merchant, and one or 'i wvenpori s cnurcn momnors. At tha time of religious troubles In England when the Puritans were pun- ished on account of the stand which they took, Davenport wns ohllgeq to flee In disguise, because certain charges had been made against him. He had been reported to the king, as being a Puritan, by a servant whom he had reproved for swearing. If Davenport had not escaped wh-n the report w made, ho nrohnblv would have boon Imprisoned and would also have lost I his living or been heavily fined. Eaton was also a rurltan In his views nnd both ho nnd pavenport had been ; Interested In the Massachusetts Bay company, having given money towards its expenses, and It Is not surprising ;hnt at this time of trouble they should have thought of settling In n new home.

' It probably took about two months to get to Boston where they receive:! a warm welcome, and, as lliey formed a. very wealthy body, the Mnnsarhu ! sifts colony wished tlietn to settle j there. Wliy Qiiliuilplnc Wn Selected. I Theophllus Eaton and a party started ' out to find a place for their new home. The Pequot war had Just ended. After j the English had destroyed the Indian fort at uMystlc, the Indians had fled westward, and In chasing them tno English came to Qulnnlplac and stayed hero several days. Vlin they .return ed, they gave so glowing nn account of tho place that Eflton went to see It. He left seven here, and returned to Boston to report. The people were so Impressed by the report that some of the iMoBsnchnsetts people Balled with ours when they left Roston In the spring of 1638. Arrival at Qulnnlplac. They skirted the coast until Quln nlplac was reached. At that time they saw three streams west of the Quln nlplac emptying Into the harbor. Tha mouth of the one furtherest east was where the railway now crosses East Water street, and vessels could be, floated t,ip as far as chapel street. The west crook emptier! where the sewer now crosses West Water street, and still further westward beyond Oyster Point (City point), was the West river. Our settlers sailed up the west crook to the corner of College and George where thoy landed tho latter part of the week, a,nd on tho following Sunday worshipped under an oak tree near the place of landing. I'urchnso of Land from Indians. It Is thought that tho land had been bought before the settlors arrived, but no deed was signed until November. The purchase was made from aiomau guln, tho sachem of the Qulnniplacs, and from the sachem of Montowese. It Included most of the land now New I Haven, East Haven, Rrnnford, North Branford, North Havin, Wnllingford, Cheshire, Hamden, rthnny, Wood bridge and Orange. The settlers gave for this large tract or land, twenty three coats, twelve spoons, two dozen knives and four cases of French knlv and sensors, a dozen hatchets, some hoes, and , porringers and to Monto wese a particular coat. The Indians promised not to disturb the settlers In any way, not to come to town armed; at least, not more than six at a time were to do so. They were willing to agree to the terms hocaiiS' they felt more secure from hostile In dians and there was a chance for prof itable trado. Laying Out of tli Town. The first step was to choose a site for their own. It Is said that Oyster 1'oint City Point) would have i r. n settled but It was difficult to dig wells at this place on account of the great depth ot the wntpr. They riecid. d to locate north of west creek, ami have the base line fif the town alon.c 'that stream. George street was the base line, anil a half mile square was laid out on that. Vork, drove and State streets (Neck lane), forming the othir sides. This i square was divided by two streets, running east nnd west and two run I nlng north and south, Into nine equal ; squares. On the olirht outside sqmireM tho principal settlers built their homes, i whll, the central one was kept as n : mf,,.Urt pInW(. The northeast square wns ofln(1 Mr Knton's quarter and j nt,,r (hfl gr)Vprnor'R quarter, and the ( paflt confer was Mr. Davenport's, AftPr tnp town plot was hid out, the i r,ns cllt bv (m greets w re given j t0 famj0(, wn0 ,.rr, well acquainted ; W,n prll.n other, nnd depended partly ; ftn tnp nurrli,r j the family and partly ! on Hie amount of monev which noli had Invested In the common stock. The next step was that, of fencing and planting, and while some Weve do ing that, others wore preparing lumber for the dwellings. As th-y had no mill for sawing, the logs were split by hnnd. Thoy were first hewn by hnnd. They wore first hewn square and then placed on a frame, over a pit so that a man could stand beneath nnd aid In moving the saw.

It Is probable that the six men who had been left here at first, had. provided shelter and o. Morehouse for those who were to com Inter, but the settlers did not be- 8 in to build dwelling houses until 1H3I1. As we Imvo already stated, our settlers were h healthy body, and had been ac customed to live In lnrg nnd elegant houses In London, so that when they built hero they laid out considerable money on. their dwellltms. It Is report ed Unit Luton s house had nineteen tlrepUices, i.nd Davenport's on the oppo- I site side of the street hod thirteen. A has been stated, None were completed I the tlrst. year.

Thr. Hist meeting Iiohsp was built In this name year, and stood In the middle Of the market place, a few rods In front of the present Center church. It was built of wood, fifty feet square, and had a tower and turret In which a sentinel wns placed to give the alarm In oa.i of attack by unfriendly Indians. Tha. people were called together by thfl beating of a drum. The tlrst drum was beaten about S o'clock lu the tower of the meeting house, and then through the streets, and when the second was beaten, tin- families came from their houtcs, and walked In procession to church, (lie children following the par ents. On reaching the meeting house lb" men took their seals on one side of the house and the women on the other each having a certain sat so that It was nn easy matter to note an absent member. The soldiers were placed near the deor and the children seem to have been left tn find their own l ices. f.m eminent.
