The following, (copied from Dr. Hawes' Centennial Address,) is a list of the names of all persons holding land in Hartford, in February, 1639.  At that time is appears that all the lands of the inhabitants were recorded in a book, and we have every reason to suppose this to be a perfect list.  The ancient orthography is retained.
