In Reply to: Atwaters, Yale University by MaggieB of 408

Many New Haven families were involved in the founding of Yale in one way or another, from giving land to giving community support. the New Haven Atwaters descended from David Atwater who arrived in here with John Davenport and Theopolis Eaton's original group of settlers. Given that David died in 1692 and Yale was founded in 1701, it would have been his children or grandchildren (most likely children)who were involved with the founding of Yale. Yale started out as the Collegiate School in Saybrook, Ct, but moved to New Haven early on. Yale University's website is, you might find more information there. Family Treemaker's online genealogy library has three books about the Atwater family. My connection is through Eunice Atwater, David's great-granddaughter. I'd be happy to try and answer any other questions.
