Vital Records of East Granby, Connecticut, 1737-1886

The New England Historic Genealogical Society has released a new database, Vital Records of East Granby, Connecticut, 1737-1886.

 “The town of East Granby was incorporated June 2, 1858, being set off from the towns of Granby and Windsor Locks. This section had previously borne that name for a considerable time before its incorporation. Its boundaries, except for a small addition on the east side, were practically the same as those of the Turkey Hills Ecclesiastical Society. This society, comprising the north-east quarter of the town of Simsbury, was established in 1736 by action of the General Assembly. The following year the Assembly added to it on the east side a small section of the town of Windsor, which from its width was often referred to as “the half mile.” In 1786 a portion of Windsor including this society was incorporated as the town of Granby, and in 1852 a portion of Windsor including this society was incorporated as the town of Windsor Locks. The name of the ecclesiastical society was changed in 1895 to conform with that of the town.”

This database contains 524 births and baptisms, 846 marriages, and 3,578 deaths.  The images of the original book pages may be viewed from the search results page.

This volume is also available in our Boston research library, call number F104.E1 E15 1947.
