Benjamin Churchill was born on May 16 1652 in Wethersfield, CT. He died
in 1730 in Wethersfield, CT.
NOTE: NOTE: Born in Wethersfield, May 16, 1652, and lived there. The records of his native town show that Mr. Churchill was early recognized as of ability and enterprise. At the age of twenty-three he was elected a surveyor, and soon after held successively the offices of collector, assessor, and constable. At the age of thirty-seven years he was chosen selectman, and for years served in that office. He was a surveyor of some note beyond his own town and often served on committees of survey for other towns by appointment of the General Assembly. May 8, 1701, he was elected lieutenant of the "Trainband," for the north precinct of Wethersfield. He was living in April, 1728, but the tax-list of 1730 does not contain his name, and the probability is that he died before 1730, though the date of his death is not found on the records. Married, July 6, (pg 327) 1676, Mary (_________). The surname of the wife of Benjamin as well as that of his brother Joseph's wife has been a matter of much careful research without avail.

to Mary Towsey on Jul 6 1676 in Wethersfield, CT.
