About 1700, certain members of the family changed the spelling of the name from Hoyt to Hait.

He removed from Branford, Conn., to “Long Ridge,” in the town of Stamford, Conn., where he bought land, March 22, 1739, passed the remaining days of his life, and died there. He was the only settler in the town of Stamford by the name of Todd, at that time, and interesting entries may be found in the town records, of the different tracts of land bought by him at “the South end of ye Long Ridge.” He seems to have inherited a taste for the milling industry, for now (1914) there are ruins of two mills at Long Ridge, one for grain, the other a saw-mill, both owned and operated by him during his residence there. He became one of the leading and influential men of that region. It is not known who he married, except that her given name was Hannah. Children: 109. John Todd, b. Jan. 8, 1731. 110. Hannah Todd, b.

Jesse Todd of West Springfield MA

Jesse Todd4, (Benjamin3, Michael2, Christopher1) born Jan. 1, 1735, probably in North Haven, Conn., died Oct. 27, 1819, in Agawam, Mass., married first Nov. 26, 1761, Lydia Cooper. He is mentioned in the Cooper Gen. He married second Feb. 24, 1790, Susannah, dau. of Isaac and Abigail (Hale) Chandler, of Enfield, Ct., born Feb. 3, 1754. He was mentioned in the “Century Sermon” by Rev. Benjamin Trumbull of North Haven, Conn., as having removed to “Springfield in Massachusetts.” He was buried in the cemetery at Agawam, which was originally a part of West Springfield, Mass., which was the town in which he lived. The Thorpe records of his children appear to be somewhat wrong. It mentions ten children, seven of whom are assumed to have lived only a year or two in each instance. The town records of West Springfield, Mass. have been carefully searched and it appears there, that five of the ten children by his first wife, lived to be married and have families. Of the remaining five, no record could be found. Children by Lydia Cooper: 189. Solomon, bapt. 1765, lived about one year. 190. Solomon, m. and had children, but their names are unknown, but had a grand-daughter, Ruth Naomi Todd, who m. (1)(???)Bullard; (2)(???) Cole. 191.
