Genealogical and Family History of the State of Connecticut: A Record of the Achievements of Her People in the Making of a Commonwealth and the Founding of a Nation. Volume III

Thomas Catlin, immigrant ancestor of the American family, was born in 1600, according to a deposition in 1687 in court, giving his age as eighty-seven years. Savage states that he died in 1690, aged about seventy-eight. One of the records is in error, presumably that of Savage. He came to Hartford, Connecticut, about 1640, and is first mentioned in the colonial records in 1644 ; was chimney viewer, 1647-48-53 ; surveyor of highways in 1655 ; townsman in 1659 ; constable in 1662-74, then an office of importance. He married (first) Mary -, who died before 1675 ; married (second), Mary Elmer or Elmore, widow of Edward Elmer or Elmore, who was killed in King Philip 's war by the Indians. Children: Mary ; Mary, born May 6, 1649, married Churchill, Joseph.

(II) John, son of Thomas Catlin, was born about 1640 in England . He received by deed of gift, January 29, 1689-90, property from his father. He married, July 27, 1665, Mary, daughter of Captain Samuel Marshall, of Windsor . She died in Hartford, October 20, 1716 . According to the Wethersfield record, however, he married Mary -, September 23, 1662 . These may be different wives, instead of there being an error in the records. Children: John, born at Wethersfield, moved to Deerfield, Massachusetts ; Mary ; Samuel, mentioned below; Thomas ; Benjamin.
