    Notes 
    • Said to be one of the ten sons of Thomas Fairchild of Stratford.

      Among the early settlers in this country was Thomas Fairchild, a native of England, who located at Stratford in 1639 and became one the leading pioneers of the place, being named by both Barber and Hollister as the first magistrate there…. It is likely that the name was originally Fairbairn, and that the family went to England from Scotland at a very early period. Thomas Fairchild, the pioneer settler at Stratford, was twice married and had several children. (37; CBR)

      "The following spring seventeen families, including about sixty persons, on foot and on horse-back, threaded their way through the wilderness from Wheathersfield, forded the Pootatuck, and halted at the red man's Cupheag and named it home. How familiar to us are many of the names on the lips of the settlers that day as they addressed one another\emdash        Blakeman, Fairchild, Curtis, Sherwood, Judson, Wilcoxson, Beardsley\emdash        a real Stratford in miniature, small in numbers but not in extent, as the original township embraced most of the land afterwards…They were landed at the mouth of Mack's Creek where the settlers made a temporary abiding place\emdash        huts, tents and meeting-house\emdash        until the division of the land could be affected." (39; Stratford's 250th Anniv.)
