Nehemiah Royce
Birth: 1636
Somerset, England
Death: Nov. 1, 1706
Wallingford
New Haven County
Connecticut, USA

Nehemiah was the son of Mary and Robert ROYCE.

On Nov. 20, 1660, he married Hannah MORGAN at New London, New London County, CT.

Then on 1678, he married Esther (Moss).

He was a carpenter, joiner and blacksmith by trade.

The House plaque reads:
Nehemiah Royce House - 1672
Oldest Wallingford home built two years after the town was settled, overlooking "Dog's Misery". When General Washington came to Wallingford in 1775 he said farewell in front of this house. Wallingford was the 19th settlement in Connecticut and Royce one of it's original proprietors on whose behalf the land was purchased from Mantowese and Sunk Squa, daughter of the Great Sachem of the Quinnipiacs.
"The rest of the state was wilderness. The enemies were the Indians, the wolves and bears, and the French, the Dutch and the Devil."

This is the oldest "salt box" in Wallingford. Many times altered and renovated, it was moved from it's original location opposite the site of the "Washington Elm". It's present restoration to fine condition was done by the Choate School now the owner.
