Robert/1 Old, of Windsor, Connecticut, there married (1), 31 Dec 1669, Susanna Hanford of Windsor.1,2,3 Of Suffield, Connecticut, 1674, when their daughter Mindwell was born there, the first white child.4,5 He was an original purchaser of land from Maj. John Pynchon, who bought the tract which became Suffield from the Indians for £30, then had it surveyed and subdivided for sale to settlers. Pynchon's account reconciliation, dated Feb 1681, notes that Robert Old had paid 13s. 4d. for an unspecified amount of land.6
     Robert's wife Susanna died at Suffield 6 Jan 1688/89, several weeks after the birth of their 8th child.1 There he married (2), 1 Apr 1689, Dorothy/2 Granger of Suffield, daughter of Lancelot/1 Granger and Joanna Adams.1,7 He died at Suffield 16 Jan 1728.8
     "Robert Old came to Suffield from Windsor in 1673, and settled on the Northampton Road (called Old street), about a quarter of a mile northerly from the road to West Suffield … A small slab in the old church-yard marks his burial place. From whence he came to Windsor, or who were his ancestors is unknown. The addition of the letter (s) to the surname is of late date in Suffield records. In 1696, 'Goodman' Old made brick, and built the chimney for the minister's house. In 1694, he was appointed town agent to manage their case before the General Assembly in regard to their 'rates,' which were burdensome. Several of his sons remained in Suffield, and had families. His sons, Jonathan and Robert, Jr., had lands allotted to them in Springfield, west of the river, in 1720, and lived there at that time. He was not qualified to vote at the first town meeting, and probably was never made a 'Freeman.9'"
