  • Note:
    Daniel Garrett's Eglish ancestry and the details of his immigration are not known at this time. That he was the "Danielus Garrod" who married "Maria Ussher" at St. Mary's parish, Bocking, Essex Co., England, is also not proven, but appears likely. However, by at least 1665, and perhaps as early as 1657, his wife at Hartford, CT was a "Margaret," possibly a second or later wife who may also be the mother of some of his children. See detailed discussion in Gale Ion Harris, PhD., "Daniel Garrett & His Family of Hartford, CT, TAG, Vol. 71," April, 1996: pp. 93-104.

    It appears that Daniel arrived at Hartford about 1637. His house lot was recorded there in Jan. 1640, on the north side of the road from Centinel Hill to the Cow Pasture (North Main St.). "Most of these lots were granted to young men not with the pioneer settlers of 1635-1636, but who were veterans of the Pequot War of 1637. In October 1640, the town also gave Daniel the lot that had been assigned to Nicholas Gennings in Soldiers' Field at the north end of Hartford. Given these circumstances, it has been argued that Garrett was one of the soldiers from Hartford in the Pequot campaign of 1637. All known circumstances are therefore at least consistent with the claim that Daniel was the man who had married Mary Usher at Bocking in May 1636." (from Gale Ion Harris, PhD., "Daniel Garrett & His Family of Hartford, CT, TAG, Vol. 71," April, 1996: pg. 95.)

    Daniel was made Freeman 9 April 1640 and made master of the colony's prison 11 July 1654, a post which he held until 1682. He was town chimney-viewer 15 Feb. 1656 and assessed for mil rates as an inhabitant of Hartford "north side" in 1655, 1656 and 1657. On 11 May 1682 Daniel was granted a pension of 5 pounds per year for two years "in regard of his poverty" and "long time in the country service." No probate is recorded.
