There is some doubt as to the origin of George Phelps of Windsor, Connecticut. Phelps & Servin held that he was the brother of William Phelps from Tewkesbury. This has been completely disproven.

What is know is that In 1635 a George Phelps joined the emigration to the new settlement of Windsor at the junction of the Farmington & Connecticut Rivers, now Windsor. He had eight children by his first wife (1638-1647) and three by his second (1649-1653). About 1670 be moved to Westfield, Massachusetts with his second wife. His chief public duties were on the juries of Hartford, Connecticut & Springfield, Massachusetts. His estate: 317 pounds.

  1. Capt. Isaac Phelps b. 20 Aug. 1638, Windsor, m. Ann Gaylord, 11 Mar. 1665 (1645-1689), dau. of William Gaylord, Jr. & Ann Porter (Gaylord 2.1). She d. 27 Sept. 1690. He d. 2 June 1725, Westfield.

    He moved from Windsor to Westfield where he was town clerk, assessor, surveyor, town treasurer and Schoolmaster. It is said that the Westfield church records contain a long relation to the religious experiences of Isaac Phelps. At the age of 76 he was given the title of Captain, and in 1724, when he was 86, he was chosen Town Treasurer. It appears that Isaac may have been the only one of the family to be able to write, while his father, George, his uncle, William Phelps and his younger brothers used primitive "marks".
