Excerpt from The Seal of Connecticut On March 19, 1628, the Council, by a deed under its com mon seal to Sir Henry Rosewell and five others, and their heirs and associates forever, made a grant of lands for a settlement on Massachusetts Bay. They, having first associated twenty others with them, obtained the charter from the Crown, of March 4, 1629 (n. S.) under which Winthrop and his company set up the colony of Massachusetts. Robert, Earl of Warwick, was the President of the Council at least as early as January 13, 1630 (n. S.), T and we have the high authority of Dr. Douglass and Dr. Trumbull): for the assertion that in that year the Council conveyed to him, by a grant soon afterwards confirmed by a royal patent, the territory which on March 19, 1631, he transferred by a deed under his own seal to Lord Say and Seal and ten others, and their heirs and associates forever.
