|Birth: ||Jan. 9, 1623|
|Death: ||Feb., 1693|
Richard Treat, a son of Richard and Alice (Gaylord) Treat, was baptized January 9, 1622/3 at Pitminster, Somerset, England. His father Richard Treat brought his family to America soon after June, 1637 and settled in Wethersfield as one of its early settlers, and had landholdings recorded there by the February 24, 1640/1 land inventory.
Richard Treat, Jr. was commissioned Ensign of the Wethersfield Train Band in February 1652/3 and later was commissioned Corporal of the Colonial Troop of Horse on March 11, 1657/8. Both commissions were determined by Donald Lines Jacobus to belong to Richard Treat, Jr. rather than either belonging to his father, even though the commission as corporal could be considered a demotion from ensign, yet the scope of the latter "colonial" commission was greater than that of the local first "Wethersfield" commission.
He married Sarah Coleman (1642-1734), daughter of immigrant Thomas Coleman and his unknown first wife, in about 1660 and they had 2 sons and 2 daughters. Ensign Richard Treat died in Wethersfield at age 70 in 1693. His burial is likely in the Wethersfield Village Cemetery, but the marker was one of the perishable types from that time that is no longer visible.
