  • Notes 
    • MILITARY: "Connecticut Historical Society's Collections", vol. 9, p. 55, 138-9, 237. John Trowbridge was brought in infancy by his parents to the parish of Wilton in Norwalk, Conn. He lived there until the spring of 1749, when he removed to Danbury, Conn. He served in the French and Indian War as corporal of the Fifth Company, 4th Connecticut Regiment, enlisting September 12, and being discharged November 8, 1755. He was sergeant of the Seventh Company, 3d Connecticut Regiment, on a roll dated Fort William Henry October 13, 1756. He was a sergeant of Capt. John Barnum's Danbury militia company for eighteen days in August, 1757, in the alarm for the relief of Fort William Henry. John Trowbridge was engaged in farming in Danbury the rest of his life. His farmhouse was in the Miry Brook district, just west of the town, and during the Revolution, soldiers were quartered there, among them his son-in-law, Mr. Eames. In Norwalk, Mr. Trowbridge was chosen tithingman in 1735, grand juror in 1740, and lister in 1746. In Danbury, he was chosen a selectman in 1753 and collector of rates in 1761. He was also a prominent member of the Danbury Congregational church.
