Biographical Note

Thaddeus Larned (1756-1818) was a farmer, magistrate, and land speculator in Thompson, Connecticut. He was a direct descendent of William Learned (1590-1646) who, originally from England, settled and died in Massachusetts. Thaddeus' grandfather, William (1687-1747), moved to Connecticut, where Simon, Thaddeus' father was born. Noadiah Larned, Thaddeus' son, also farmed in Thompson, Connecticut.

Scope and Content Note

These are the papers of the Larned family, of Thompson, Connecticut, dating from 1786-1904. Specifically, they are the papers of Thaddeus and Noadiah Larned, but also include materials by or about Abigail, Albert, Daniel, Esther, Frederick, George, Helen, and Simon.

These papers document the personal, legal, and business dealings of the family. The bulk of materials contain letters, financial records, and legal documents. The correspondence is mostly personal. The financial records almost solely consist of receipts for accounts paid by individuals, but include records of monetary contributions to community projects as well. The legal documents are broken down into three main categories: deeds, leases, and wills.

Of special note are documents pertaining to the Gloucester Turnpike Society, for whom Thaddeus Larned was treasurer, and an unidentified journal covering part of 1819. The journal records the agricultural activities and other business endeavors of its owner and his participation in religious camp meetings along with the Muster Roll of the 4th Company 2nd Regiment Cavalry, 1818.
