Notes for Samuel Prindle:
His name appears on a List of Names of the Original Purchasers (109 in number) and Proprietors of the Township of New Milford, April 1706. He was one of the first twelve settlers of New Milford which was organized in October, 1712, and where he appears as a signer of the petition in 1711.
John Noble, Sr., laid out Mr. Prindle's first forty acres, on Second Hill before 1714, and on the Right of William Fowler, which was described as "lying upon the westerly side of the Second Hill at a place called Prindle's Pitch, 80 rods on the square, common land on all sides."
In 1721, William Fowler deeded his Right, including this land improved, and another piece at the south end of the village, to Samuel Prindle and Joseph Bostwick. Mr Prindle had paid all the charges against this Right for seven years, by which he secured one-half the right to himself. His dwelling stood at the south end of the village.
He and his wife united with the First Church there in 1720, but, with six of their children (John, Samuel, Jr., Sarah, Elizabeth, Dorothy and Daniel) are named in the Record of the Church book as "Sundry Members who fell away to Quakerism in ye year 1731 and 1732." Eight years after he returned to the First Church, but she had returned in 1736. It appears that the three sons left the Quakers and united with the Episcopal Church in 1743, the records of which show that on March 17, 1743, it was "Voted upon the desire of John Prindle, Samuel Prindle, David Prindle" (and nine others) "to grant them a piece of land in the street east of Mr. Samuel Prindle's house, upon the hill near where the old pound used to stand, sixty feet in length and forty feet in bredth, in orderto build a Church of England upon, and for no other purpose."

To Samuel and John, "my tract or parcel of Land lying at ye three mile
brook, to be equally divided between them."
