    Notes:

    He was Chaplain of the regiment from the Norwich, Connecticut area in King Phillip's War.
    From Burpee's text we find that the Reverend studied in Hartford with Thomas Hooker and Samuel Stone (James' brother Joseph married Stone's daughter Mary). He was ordained a pastor in Saybrook, and subsequently moved to Norwich. Connecticut Trilogy tells us that a company of Saybrook planters, "under the spiritual direction of the Reverend Fitch" and the assistance of John Mason, purchased land just above the Indian fort.
    He apparently spent some energy on helping the Indians. He is mentioned petitioning on behalf of them to the Royal Commission headed by Governor Dudley of Massachusetts. And, of course,he saw it as his mission to convert the heathen to Christianity. From Trilogy comes:

    But he did not make any great headway until in 1676 when a
    great drought ruined all the crops. The Mohegans called in
    the services of a medicine man but all his whirlings and
    howlings did not draw down a drop of moisture. [Chief]
    Uncas then appealed to the white man to see what his God
    could do. The Reverend Fitch saw his chance. He promised
    to try if Uncas would give credit where credit was due
    in case of success. Then the planters set a day for
    prayer. They prayed and they prayed but not a cloud veiled
    the brassy sun until just as it was going down, and then
    a tiny one drifted across its face. For several days
    it was overcast. And then came the deluge. It rained
    and it rained and it rained. And then it rained some
    more.

    Indian stories with Fitch involved continue. During early land grabs, one of Chief Uncas' minions, somewhat drunk, set fire to the Norwich jail. For retribution, Fitch and company were given an additional 100 acres of Mohegan land. This and other land acquisitions gave them quite a parcel. Fitch, Mason and the others proceeded to survey the rattlesnake-infested land and assign Home-Lots. It is said that this was the first settlement in America to be so surveyed and planned before families actually moved in (Trilogy, p. 164).

    Notes:

    The Avery collection also lists alternates to this and the preceding generation. She notes that George Fitch and Joan Thurgood may have been in place of Thomas Fitch and Mary Mauch. In addition, Roger Fitch and Margery (unknown) may have been in place of Thomas Fitch and Anne Bartley (the preceding generation). Her notes make reference to both sets, although the generations earlier than these two in question seem to be certain, at least in her notes.
