Winchester/Winsted CT history

Annals of Winchester, CT (includes Winsted, CT)

Winchester (and Winsted), Litchfield County, Connecticut

"Annals and Family Records of Winchester, Conn." is available!!  ... but please read this: About CD-ROMs

Annals of Winchester, Conn., by John Boyd, originally  published in 1873, (643+ pages) is the definitive history of Winchester and Winsted, CT.  

(For anyone unclear about the geography:  Winchester is the township within which Winsted is located.  We get asked that question so frequently that it's worth saying it right up front.)

John Boyd, author of Annals of Winchester

The author (his picture is above; click it to see a larger image) spent 15 years documenting the entire history of the township (and the Borough of Winsted within it) from earliest times up through the centennial that was held in 1871.  His topics range from the original division of the Township and its (eventual) settlement all the way to the specifics of the industries of Winsted in 1873. 

He documents the settlers individually through the 1820s, generally noting where they came from, customarily describing their life while residents, and often listing their spouses and children.  Additionally, he frequently tells where people who left the township went (the Vernon area of Oneida County, NY, was one locale to which many Winchester families were drawn, for example).

Boyd provides detailed histories of the churches of Winchester and the Town's involvement in the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and Civil War.  Also included are accounts of the political and geographic disagreements through the years, the effects of some of which are still evident in the Township today.  Part of the Winchester story is the history of technology in the area, and this is included as well. 

Now available!!

What people are saying about this CD:

The Winsted Journal:  "One of the town's most treasured historical works has made a technological leap..."

A Librarian:  "This will help us preserve our two remaining original copies, and let people print out pages they want -- our originals have been too fragile to photocopy for some time."

"G. J.": "Thanks for bringing this wonderful book back to life.  I have been searching for this book for many years."

"J. M.": "It really is a page turner!  It is so well written, so forthright, colorful and heartfelt and detailed.  I felt I really got to know the early settlers of Winchester, to experience their hardships and struggles, their accomplishments and joys, and their great sense of community....Just wanted to thank you for republishing this book, a real glimpse into a bygone era.  It is a valuable resource."

Between the Lakes Group frequently re-indexes books we republish.  One excellent reason is that indexes in old history and genealogy books are often incomplete at best and misleading at worst.  However, Boyd did, for his times, a superb job of indexing.  The more we work with the book the more impressed we are at the attention to detail he devoted to his indexes -- an uncommon place to devote much care in those days, unfortunately.  Boyd's 643 pages include three indices (an index of names, an index of settlers, and an index of subjects), and all seem unusually complete. 

We did find lacking an index of locations (towns, villages, neighborhoods, streets) that would be very useful today in locating sites in Winchester and Winsted and in tracing in- and out-migrations.  We believe that we have added considerable value by creating a brand new index of locations.  Prediction:  people who THOUGHT they had researched this book will find whole new family connections.  

You can view THE FULL NEW PLACE NAME INDEX on this website.

A somewhat peculiar omission in Boyd's book was a Table of Contents.  It seems like a small thing, and it's curious that he would not include one.  We have remedied that, too.  Because it's helpful in understanding the scope of the book, you can check the Table of Contents we created here, too, if you wish.

To facilitate checking to see if this book is ultimately of interest to you, we also  summarize the indexes Boyd provided on this page.  See below.  (We eliminated page numbers in this section to save space and make the indexes less cumbersome to use on-line).

THANKS to Editor Michael Marciano and The Winsted Journal for their very supportive article about this project!  In the same issue that reported Winsted native Ralph Nader's now historic decision to again seek the Presidency on page one, the Journal gave republication of "Annals of Winchester" the entire first page of their second section!  Here's their headline:  "A Treasured Work Transferred to Compact Disc" -- and the first paragraph reads:

"One of the town's most treasured historical works has made a technological leap with the help of a publisher from Salisbury who has a passion for local history."

 

Boyd's Index of "Settlers and Inhabitants Specially Noted with their Family Records".

Winchester/Winsted:  questions and answers

Question:  Is this about Winsted, CT, too?

Answer:  Definitely.  Winsted is a city (called a Borough in Boyd's time) located within the Town of Winchester.  Although Boyd elects to deal with "Old Society" Winchester separately from the Borough of Winsted ("Winsted Society"), each gets roughly half the book.  The same kind of information (who came, when they came, where they came from, what they did when they were in Winchester/Winsted, when they left, where they went when the left, and who their children -- in some cases grandchildren --were) is present in abundance for both rural Winchester and more urban Winsted. 

 

Question:  When will this CD-ROM be available?

Answer:  It is available now, for $20.00  Please   How to order the Winsted/Winchester CD-ROM for ordering information.

 

Question:  Does Between the Lakes Group publish other CD-ROMs about Litchfield County, CT?  About other locations?

Answer:  Yes to both.  We've republished several about Litchfield County and its localities.  Particularly see the Winchester/Winsted page to begin with, but here are some other Litchfield County localities:  

"Scrap Book of North Canaan" (as well as some records from the old Pilgrim Church in North Canaan).

"New Milford: 230 Years" (which includes Two Centuries of New Milford as well as other material).

"The Clergy of Litchfield County" (Arthur Goodenough's classic about the history of religion, churches, and clergy in a county where all counted for very much.)

Question:  My budget is limited.  How expensive is the Winchester/Winsted CD-ROM?

Answer:  It is priced at $20.  How we do business at Between the Lakes Group to go to a page with questions and answers about the way we do business at Between the Lakes Group.   And, How to order the Winchester/Winsted CD-ROM for information about how to order this CD.

 

Question:  I would like to exchange e-mails and post queries about the history and genealogy of the Town of Winchester and the City of Winsted.  Any suggestions?

Answer:  Thanks for asking!  At Between the Lakes Group, when we mount a local history project we usually create an e-group about the project and the subject at "Yahoo!Groups".  These e-mail groups are free, and some that we have started are very popular.  One such group we established has over 130 members and there are usually numerous posts each day.  Others have only a handful of members and there are relatively few posts.  We have created an e-group for Winchester and Winsted.  If you would like to join the group -- and you can leave at any time -- simply Subscribe to the Winchester e-group to send an e-mail to WinchesterCT-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.  The success of this group is up to you!

 

Question:  I don't like books on CD.  Can I get this book in printed form?

Answer:  While original copies of Annals of Winchester, CT are not common they do occasionally turn up.  We located the copy we reprinted in preparing this CD in a rare book store some time ago.  Prices of rare books change frequently and are based on many factors, including condition.  Annals was also reprinted in paperback a few years ago.  We have not seen the paperback edition and cannot comment on it in terms of quality or completeness.  The most recent price we have seen listed for the paperback reprint was $47.00 plus shipping and handling. 

If you conclude that our CD, priced at $20, is a better alternative, please How to order the Winsted CT/Winchester CT book on CD for ordering information.

If you do decide to try to locate a printed copy of the book, we do want you to feel free to make use of the index of place names that we compiled for the CD.  It appears on this website.  It does NOT appear in any printed edition of Annals of Winchester.
