Wallingford Mill

Civic records show him actively involved in the construction and operation of a mill in 1677 in Wallingford, CT for which he received 33 acres and later even more land.

The following is provided by Carole (Lathrop) Myers:

The next year we find him called to Wallingford, as the following vote on record shows: "Sept. 10, 1677. "Vote to send for Jo. Lothrop to come and conclude arrangements for building the mill." By some marvel of dispatch which we could hardly look for in those early days, within three days time he had already entered on the work of building the mill. The only explanation of it seems to have been in the pressing necessities of the new town, which would not allow them to wait even for the usual settlement of the terms on which the mill should be built, as the following record will suggest: "Sept. 13, 1667. Vote that if Jo. Lothrop go on with all speed and complete his mill which he hath begun — leaving all agreements to a convenient time — the town grants him his 30 acres.""

"That grant covered the site of the mill. To it were added two other grants, one of 44 acres "peculiar" to it, and one of 40 acres upland. The town also remits his tax for building the mill. In 1681, the entire control of the mill was put into his hands. His heirs sold the property in 1704, but to this day the meadow is called the "Lothrop Lot." He died, as the Wallingford records show, Aug. 25, 1688, aet. 44. Ruth, his widow, in Feb. 19, 1689/90, drew lot No.4, in the distribution of that date. The inventory of his estate was presented to probate May 18, 169_?, and is recorded in Book No. 2, of the New Haven probate records, and in it he is named "John Lothrop, late of Wallingford."[10]

He "married Dec. 15, 1669, Ruth Royce, daughter of Robert. He and his sister Elizabeth were married at the same time by Commissioner Daniel Wetherell, and the record appears among the other records of the Commissioner's Court." John's sister, Elizabeth Lathrop (1648-1690), married Ruth's brother, Isaac Royce.

Ruth would marry later to Joseph Thompson of Wallingford.
