The next seventeen months of Mr. Stanton's life were eventful ones, for in them occured his marriage and settlement in Hartford, Conn. In June, 1636, Rev. Thomas Hooker and 100 other persons came from Newtown (Cambridge), Mass., and founded Hartford, Conn. In February, 1639, there were 127 property-holders in Hartford, and among them were Dr. Thomas Lord and his son-in-law, Thomas Stanton. It is not known whether Dr. Lord came to Hartford with Hooker or at a later date. The time of Mr. Stanton's arrival and marriage is not known, but we do know that his wife was Ann, eldest daughter and third child of Dr. Thomas and Dorothy Lord.
