The Sedgwick Collection (MSS B46) at the New Haven Colony Historical Society
|MSS B46 Sedgwick Family Collection
The Sedgwick Family Collection represents the combined
efforts of several family members which culminated in
the collection amassed by Hubert Merrill Sedgwick (1867-
1950). Hubert Sedgwick's death in 1950 prevented his
plans of publishing a genealogy of the descendants of
Captain Samuel Sedgwick (1667-1795) from being realized.
About the time of Sedgwick's death his family gave the
collection to the New Maven Colony Historical Society.
For a brief history of the collection prior to its being
given to the Historical Society, please see Box 1, Folder L.
Biographical infornation on Hubert M. Sedgwick may be found
in either Box 6, Folder G or Box 11, Folder C under his
code number of 411,324,1.
(see Analysis for an explanation of the code number.)
The correct dates for Captain Samuel Sedgwick are 1667-1735.
