Riassunto: Excerpt from History of Western Massachusetts, Vol. 3 of 2: The Counties of Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin, and Berkshire, Embracing an Outline, or General History, of the Section, and Account of Its Scientific Aspects and Leading Interests, and Separate Histories of Its One Hundred Towns
The settlement of the boundary line between Massachusetts and Connecticut, in 1713, threw the town of Suffield into Connecticut. In 1732, the Legislature of Massachusetts Bay, in compliance with the petition of the owners of common and undivided lands in that town, at the time the line was run, granted to them an equivalent tract of six miles square, and this tract is now covered by the town of Blandford. Christopher Jacob Lawton, then of Suffield, became the purchaser of this tract, and, in 1735, conveyed two undivided fourth parts of the township to Francis Wells and John Faye, and another fourth part to Francis Brinley of Eoxbury. Messrs. Lawton, Wells, Faye and Brinley thus became equally the proprietors of the township. There is interesting early history contained in the following statement, in the hand-writing of Francis Brinley, not before published: -
"It's generally well known in your parts that Mr. Christopher Jacob Lawton obtained a grant for a tract of land called now Blandford, alias New Glasco, and in the time of it, in order to carry on the settlement, took in two partners for one half, viz: Capt. Francis Welds and Mr. John Fay.
