In October, 1635, we find recorded the arrival of Joseph Middlebrook from Englnad, at Concord, Massachusetts Bay Colony.

There appears to have been some dissatisfaction among the settlers at Concord on account of the excessive taxes levied upon the inhabitants of the colony, particularly those at Concord.  Many of them were not content, especially as the soil was marshy and difficult to profitably utilize.

In the summer of 1644, therefore, sixteen families, under the leadership of the Rev. John Jones, comprising possibly one-eigth of the planters of Concord, removed to Fairfield in the Colony of Connecticut.  Those who came were as follows:
Rev. John Jones,
Thomus Bulkley,
Daniel Bulkley,
Thomas Jones,
William Bateman,
William Odell,
John Evearts,
Peter Johnson,
Joseph Middlebrook,
John Tompkins,
Ephraim Wheeler,
Thomas Wheeler, Jr.,
James Bennett,
Richard Lattin,
Benjain Turney,
George Squire.
Our ancestor, Joseph Middlebrook, settled with eight of the others in the Pequonnock district of Fairfield, where he was granted (Jan. 8, 1649) by the town of Fairfield one home lot, consisting of two and one-half acres, bounded northwest by John Evarts, northeast by Benjamin Turney and George Starkey, southeast by Peter Johnson, and southwest by the highway.
