Ambrose Seymour Todd of Stamford CT

Ambrose Seymour Todd7, (Ambrose6, Jonah5, Stephen4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Dec. 6, 1798, died Jan. 22, 1861, married Oct. 3, 1821, Elizabeth, daughter of Gen. Andrew Hull, of Cheshire, (Conn.?). He was ordained deacon of the Episcopal Church July 15, 1820; priest June 20, 1823; he was rector of St. James Church at Stamford, Conn., for thirty-eight years.

“With more than ordinary ability in the pulpit, he showed great tact and wisdom in his pastoral oversight of his charge. Few men have secured more universal esteem. Few pastors have won so much regard and confidence at the same time from both their own and other denominations.”

From Huntington’s History of Stamford.

In 1844, Columbia College confered upon him the degree of Doctor of Divinity.
