Lands of Glastonbury co-founder Ephraim Goodrich acquired from 1692-1709 in South Glastonbury, Hartford, Connecticut.

All of the land shown north (north = left in map) of the Four-Score Acre Lots in the map above was at one time part of the Treat Farm, which at one time was a full 310 rods in width on both its west and east side; a total of 1,860 acres. Deeds dated 1692-1693 have been found involving transfer of 440 acres from Richard Treat (1623-1693) to daughter Sarah Treat (1664-1712) and husband Ephraim Goodrich, with the remainder going to son Thomas Treat (1668-1713).

However, when the will of Thomas Treat was drafted on June 9, 1709 and co-signed that same day by his nephews-neighbors Richard Goodrich and Thomas Goodrich, the 240 acre lot designated Richard Goodrich 1713 in the map above was in the possession of Richard Goodrich, and the transfer was later formalized by a deed from his father, Ephraim Goodrich, dated April 3, 1713.

The reason for additional Treat Farm allocations is not known, and no documentation of the transfers has been found other than the confirmation by Thomas Treat found in his 1709 will.
