    Notes 
    • Deputy (Wethersfield) to Connecticut Legislature April 1644 - Oct. 1657.  Assistant, Connecticut Colonial, May 1658 - May 1644.  Patentee -- Royal Charter of Connecticut from Charles II of England, 1662.  One of the twelve appointed Assistants of said Company established in said Royal Charter.  Ensign -- Wethersfield Trainband, Feb. 1653.  Corporal -- Connecticut Colonial Troop, March 1658.
          Richard was baptized under the name Trott, married under the name Trett; his children were baptized as Trott, and Tratt, and he was called Treat when he died.
          It is not known when he came to the colonies.  Some theorized he settled in Watertown, Massachusetts in 1637, but he is first recorded at Wethersfield, CT September 6, 1641, when he recorded his purchase of John Whitmore's house, barn and 12-1/2 acres of land.
          On November 13 1654, Richard and his son Richard were censured by the Particular Court saying "there is several in Wethersfield hath not upheld theire howses upon theire home lotts according as the Law requires ...."
          He was one of the judges who presided over the witchcraft trial of Nathaniel Greensmith and his wife, in December of 1662.
      Extracts from the Pitminster Church, Pitminster, Somerset, England, visitor brochure concerning the Trott / Treat family:
      “The present organ was built by Messrs. Minns of Taunton in 1905 and has an oak case presented by John Harvey Treat of America, who also gave the clock tower in 1903.
          The name Treat is also connected with the oldest bell in the present ring of eight bells. The bell of 1630 was cast at Nvnehead, a few miles away, by two brothers from a famous family of bell-founders, Richard and Roger Purdie. In all, three bells were then cast at the order of the young Vicar, Walter Travers, but the question of payment caused discontent among some folks in the parish. They were led by one Richard Trott, a respected yeoman. Some years after the case had been heard in the Bishop's Court at Wells, Richard Trott, (then aged 53) emigrated to the New World with his large family. He became a leader of the English colony of Connecticut (his surname then spelt as 'Treat"), his son Robert was made Governor and one of his very numerous descendants signed the Declaration of Independence.  His story is told on the memorial tablet fixed to the north wall.”
