About meBenjamin Wolcott (1685 - ~1723), son of John and Mary (Chester) Wolcott, and a lieutenant in Capt. James Steele's company of Hartford militia. Benjamin returned to England to lay claim to family lands at Tolland that had passed to female relatives; he was unsuccessful in the attempt, but found a wife instead, marrying Joan Galhampton.

Wolcott died before he could make his return to Connecticut.

About my libraryWolcott's small library is documented in an addendum to his estate inventory, taken 21 August 1723 and transcribed in A Digest of the Early Connecticut Probate Records, Vol. II, p. 626.
