Connecticut Ratification Convention Roster (January 3, 1788)

Connecticut Convention Roster This roster is compiled from the Weekly Monitor, 14 January; the Connecticut Courant, 14 January; and Glorious News, a broadside published by Josiah Meigs. The Courant listed the names of the delegates, with their military and honorific titles, in two paragraphs-one headed "yeas" and the other "nays." The Monitor and the broadside listed the delegates by towns and counties. The Monitor indicated how each delegate had voted, while the broadside marked only those delegates who had voted against ratification.

A total of 174 men was elected to the Convention. A "Y" has been placed after the names of those delegates who voted for ratification, an "N" after those who voted against ratification, and an "A" after those who were either absent or abstained.
The first names of the delegates have been spelled out, and their last names are spelled correctly so far as the sources make it possible to do so. The names of two towns were later changed. Bethlem became Bethlehem and Chatham became East Hampton. HARTFORD COUNTY
