Ellington

This region was named by Indian inhabitants Weaxskashuck, meaning Great Marsh. Early white settlers called it Windsor Goshen or Great Marsh. In 1671 Town of Windsor purchased western part from the Indians, receiving eastern portion later from General Assembly to replace land taken from Windsor to settle boundary dispute between Massachusetts and Connecticut. Samuel Pinney was first settler in 1717. Former home of the Reverend John McKinstry 1730, is probably oldest house standing in Ellington. Legislative action established parish in 1735. Part of Windsor east of Connecticut River was set off 1768, becoming East Windsor. Ellington was taken from East Windsor and incorporated in 1786.
