      1. Henry R. Stiles, "The History and Genealogies of Ancient Windsor, Connecticut," 1892, v. 2, pp. 77-78:
      A. John, the founder of the W. line of Bissells, sett. at W. bef. 1640 (see pp. 152, 540, 544, Vol. I.); rec'd 1648 or '49, a grant from the Col. Ct., of the monopoly of a ferry across the Conn. River, located on the E. Side, near the wharf belonging to the Quarry Co... Evidences seem to point to the fact that Bissell had built on the east side of the river as early as 1659-60. In 1662, he gave his homestead with the ferry in Old W. to his son John, and rem. with his son Nathaniel to the east side, below the mouth of the Scantic; being, probably, the first family to actually reside on the east side... 13 years later (King Philip's War) the Bissells had neighbors and their house was fortified and garrisoned, as was Thos. Burnham's at Podunk, 3 of 4 miles below. John, Jr., asked, in 1663, to be released form his ferry contract, which was granted on condition that some one could be found to take his place. Perhaps, from that time, the location of the ferry was rem. down to the mouth of Scantic; but certainly, as early as 1677, Nathaniel B. was ferryman there, and the ferry was still known as Bissells's Ferry... [John had 6 children including Samuel and Nathaniel, each of whom had daughters named Hannah; both Hannahs are in this database. John Bissell, also in this database, was also a son of Samuel and a brother to one of the Hannahs.]
