The arrival year, 1630, of the Richard Treat family is WRONG. Richard, wife Alice Gaylord, and their nine children (a baby died and is buried in England) came to New England in 1637 after their youngest child, Katharine Treat (wife of William Thompson, son of Reverend William Thompson and Abigail Collins), was born and baptized on June 29, 1637. Unfortunately, there are no records or proof of them living in Dorchester, Massachusetts, upon arrival. Almost all records I have show them settling in Wethersfield, Connecticut, after arriving in New England. We don't know if they stayed in Massachusetts for a while before moving on to Connecticut, or they went straight to Connecticut.
