Biography

ChildParent1
Birth1738Henry Mead was born in 1738.
Marriage10 September 1775He and Elizabeth Denton were married on 10 September 1775 at 2nd Congregational Church in Greenwich, Fairfield County, Connecticut,2
Biography25 February 1779On 25 February 1779: On the occasion of General Putnam's ride down Put's Hill, and the Tories' takeover of the town, "The citizens hung about the village as near as they dared, hiding in the swamps and byplaces during the whole day, taking advantage of every opportunity, by some daring feat, to secure prisoners, and even fire upon the enemy.
About an hour after the arrival of the body of Tories, Gov. Tryon with his full force of about twelve hundred men, took full possission of the town. He made his quarters at the house of Mr. Henry Mead, who then kept a public house on the present site of the residence of Miss Sarah Lewis and Mrs. Mason. The soldiers, meantime, separated themselves into squads, and pillaged every house in the neighborhood; a large body of them visited Coscob, where they destroyed the salt-works which were upon Bush's Point, a small sloop, and a sloop's storehouse. A party of them also entered the house of Daniel and Joshua Smith, which was situated a little way south of the present parsonage of the Second Congregational Society."3
Biography1787In 1787: Frederick Hubbard writes, "Lewis and Mason Streets are named after two prominent old-time families. One of the most interesting spots in the Borough, rife as it is with historic memories, is the northeast corner of Putnam Avenue and Lafayette Place, where the Rev. Dr. Lewis lived, and which was subsequently owned by his daughter, Mrs. Mary E. Mason, and his grandson, Theodore L. Mason, M.D.

"Before the war of the Revolution, this corner and many acres besides belonged to Henry Mead. He was the landlord of a Colonial tavern which stood near the junction of the main country road and the road to Sherwood's Bridge, now Glenville. Here he entertained, in such style as the times permitted, Gen. Putnam, Gen. Lafayette and other Revolutionary notables.

"Times were hard in Greenwich after the close of the war and Henry Mead struggled along for a few years and then moved with his family to New York City. As far as is known, none of them returned.

"He sold the old homestead or tavern in 1787 for three hundred and twenty pounds. The land, bounded northerly by the highway and what is now the Lenox House property and westerly by the road to Piping Point, now Greenwich Avenue, was purchased from Amos Mead and Henry Mead, respectively..."

The property was acquired by Dr. Isaac Lewis, for many years pastor of the Second Congregational Church. Hubbard continues, "Upon acquiring the property he at once proceeded to remove the Herry Mead house, and as the church then had no parsonage, he built a fine Colonial mansion about seventy-five feet back from the corner....It was built in the summer of 1786, but was not an old-fashioned sweep-back, because the Colonies had become independent, and the necessity for a one-story house, which is said to have been exempt from taxation by the Crown, no longer existed."

(The date of 1786 conflicts somewhat with the date of 1787 as the sale of the property, and also with that of the deed record.)4

And did give to said Isaac and direct that he should take as a portion of his two shares the two lots north of his house and bounded East by highway, South by land of Hannah Smith, and North and West by said Isaac's land accounting for the same at the rate of one hundred dollars per acre.
