Elias Gillett1

b. 1 July 1649, d. 15 February 1731/32
     Elias Gillett was baptized on 1 July 1649 at Windsor, Hartford Co., CT.1 He was the son of Nathan Gillett and Elizabeth (?)1 Elias Gillett married Sarah Griffin on 29 October 1676 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.1 Elias Gillett died on 15 February 1731/32 at Windsor, Hartford Co., CT, at age 82.1

Elias acquired land in various parts of Simsbury including that which he inherited from his father and father-in-law, as well as deeds received from Simsbury town grants. The earliest of his town grants on record were in the Weatogue Meadow of southeastern Simsbury east of the Farmington River. Before 1690 Elias owned land in several holdings on both sides of King Phillip Mountain and extending east to the boundary lines forming the junction of what was then Windsor (now Bloomfield) and Farmington (now Avon) and south of the road between Simsbury and Hartford. But there is some confusion as to the location of his home lot because he also purchased land in the Greenfield area of Windsor (now Bloomfield) in 1692, the deed for which lists him as a resident of Windsor. In the early 1700s Elias sold his Weatogue holdings as he acquired land on the banks of Salmon Brook.

In 1698 Elias Gillett, as a son-in-law of John Griffin, inherited lands on the east bank of Salmon Brook in the “Griffin Lordship,” located about one and one-half miles north of present-day Tariffville, Connecticut. It was these and other acquired lands in Salmon Brook that Elias passed on to his children, making Salmon Brook the principal home of this line of Gillett’s for the next century. Elias in early Simsbury had the law enforcement task of fence viewer in the entire southern part of Simsbury. He is also in the list of voters for a location of a new meeting house in Simsbury in 1683.1

Until the time of his death this Levi is easily confused in land records with Levi Gillett, son of Nathan, as both lived in Southwick, and both are in Simsbury, Granby, and Southwick land records. In records dating before 1800, Levi, son of Nathan, is usually referred to as Levi 2nd. After the death of Levi, son of Isaac, in 1809, records showing a “Levi Jr.” refer to the son of Levi and Mary listed below.2
