Windsor founder Jonathan Brewster’s time in our town was brief, but pivotal. He was Plymouth Colony’s resident agent here, and in 1635 he penned a letter to Governor William Bradford expressing his concern over the influx of newcomers into the fledgling settlement. He wrote, “Ye Massachusetts men are coming almost dayly...some have a great mind to ye place we are upon...I shall doe what I can to withstand them.”
