East Hartford
This part of the lands once inhabited by the Podunk Indians saw its first permanent colonists in 1655, when Thomas Hooker and his followers came from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to found Hartford. The east side of the Connecticut River was at that time a part of Hartford, and early settlers here included William Goodwin, Thomas Burnham, and William Pitkin. The first petition by residents to establish a separate Town was rejected by the General Assembly in 1726. Several more petitions were submitted between that year and 1783, when the Assembly at last gave its approval to the incorporation of East Hartford.
