Nicholas may have been one of several young men brought over to America by William Wadsworth. Daniel Brainerd and Nicholas were pioneers of Haddam CT. Nicholas had two pieces of land recorded to him in Hartford, one piece bought after 1655 and sold on Mar 20 1667/8 to a John Mitchell. The second piece he sold to Nathaniel Standley in Dec 1663. (or 1668).

He was one of 28 young men who bought land in 1662 at "30 Mile Island" later called Haddam. He moved his family to this land in 1667. Nicholas owned in Haddam a 14 Acre home lot as well as the "little Island at thelowerend of the cove" and a "6 acre lot towards Saybrook. This cove is where the Salmon River enters the CT River.

At his death his estate showed a valuation of 188-11-00 pounds. He did not leave a will and on 5 Sep 1695, adm. of his estate was granted to his son John. On 20 Mar 1696 the widow his 2nd wife and his children signed an agreement giving 12 pounds and the estate she bought to the "house" to his 2nd wife and to the eldest son John a double share and to each of the other children a single share.[1][2]

Religion

Occupation

  • 1662, in Hartford, was chimney viewer.[10]

Note: In the "Earliest Volume of the Town Votes of Hartford" appears this record, "It is ordered that evry howse shall have a ladder or tre at Most who shall reach (within) Two ffoote of the Topp of his howse uppon (the) forfeteur of fave shillings A mounth for (each) mounth he shall want the same." This vote gives us a hint only of the duties of a chimney-viewer, but Hinman, in his "First Puritan Settlers," makes the matter plain, thus--"As the office of Chimney-viewer is attached to the names of some of the first settlers, I take the liberty of explaining the cause. Immediately after the organization of the town of Hartford as a town, or, rather, as a company of land-holders, a law was enacted that all chimneys should be cleansed by the owner, once in a month, by a penalty provided by law. Therefore, that the law should be strictly obeyed and carried out by the inhabitants, for several years, a committee of respectable men (for no others held offices at that day) were appointed to see that all householders fully obeyed the law. It was also a law that each householder should provide a ladder for his house, where there was not a tree standing by his house, which reached within two feet of the top of the chimney. This law also came within the duties of the viewers of chimneys. At the time these laws were in force, men were selected to fill every office, high or low, with a single eye to the fact, that men who held the offices, should be of such a standing in society, as the men should honor their offices, and not the offices the holders of them. To effect this object, you find men who had filled a seat at the General Court, the next year filling the office of Hayward or Chimney-viewer. It was this practice of our worthy ancestors, which caused an officer--either civil or military, who held any place of power, to hold on to his titles with a tenacity--that living or dead--he never lost them."[11]

NICHOLAS AND HANNAH ACKLEY

Nicholas Ackley was located on lot No 42 Trumbull Street Hartford Ct in 1665 In 1662 he was chimney viewer in Hartford In the Earliest Volume of the Town Votes of Hartford appears this record It is ordered that evry howse shall have a ladder or tre at Most who shall reach within Two ffoote of the Topp of his howse uppon the forfeteur of fave shillings A mounth for each mounth he shall want the same This vote gives us a hint only of the duties of a chimney viewer but Hinmau in his First Puritan Settlers makes the matter plain thus As the office of Chimney viewer is attached to the names of some of the first settlers I take the liberty of explaining the cause Immediately after the organization of the town of Hartford as a town or rather as a company of land holders a law was enacted that all chimneys should be cleansed by the owner once in a month by a penalty provided by law Therefore that the law should be strictly obeyed and carried out by the inhabitants for several a committee of respectable men for no others held offices that day were appointed to see that all householders obeyed the law It was also a law that each should provide a ladder for his house where there was not tree standing by his house which reached within two feet the top of the chimney This law also came within duties of the viewers of chimneys At the time these were in force men were selected to fill every office high low with a single eye to the fact that men who held offices should be of such a standing in society as the should honor their offices and not the offices the holders them To effect this object you find men who had filled seat at the General Court the next year filling the office Hayward or Chimney viewer It was this practice of worthy ancestors which caused an officer either civil military who held any place of power to hold on to his with a tenacity that living or dead he never lost them."

Nicholas Ackley was one of the twenty eight young men who in bought the land where the Haddams and some adjoining towns now stand This purchase was long denominated The lands at Thirty Mile Island from an Island in Connecticut River which it was calculated was thirty miles from its mouth The Indians who reserved for themselves forty acres together with Thirty Mile Island and the right to hunt and fish where they pleased roamed over the plantation for many years.

Dr Field says For forty or forty five years from the time of settlement the people were accustomed to carry arms with them to the place of public worship that they might be able to defend themselves in case of a sudden attack As the men could not have stayed in their homes with guns in their hands all the rest of the week it is difficult to conjecture what comfort or security was left with the women and children However we have no account of any serious mischief to the first planters or their immediate descendants All the inhabitants settled at first along the western border of the river in what is now called Old Haddam The larger number of their houses stood near together on a hill overlooking at the present day a landscape of great beauty Most of the owners of these lands settled on them in the summer of 1662 or soon after but some of the company were so slow in improving their rights that action was taken by the little colony to prompt them Nicholas Ackley was one of these delinquents and he was reminded that he was wanted at Thirty Mile Island in a way that resulted in the following promise from him to assure them that he would in fact become one of them although it was perhaps pleasanter to view chimneys in Hartford:

This writing made ye eight off November 1666 bindeth me niklis Akly of harford to come with my ffamely to settle att thirte mille Island by ye twenty ninth of October next inseuing date hearof ealso to have my part of fence up yt belongs to my home lot by ye Last of next insueing as of failing hearof to forfit ten pounds to ye inhabitant of thirte mile Island as witness ray hand and Seall

Nicholas Ackly
witnes James Bate."

Nicholas Ackley appears to have kept this agreement as he removed from Hartford and his name is recorded among the first settlers at Thirty Mile Island where he had a six acre lot towards Say brook and he owned the little island near the Cove Every one of his sons seven in number moved to the east side of the Great River but he died on the west side Having settled there nearly thirty years before he still kept his home on that side Dr Patterson says March 19 1671 2 Nicholas Ackley and wife Hannah of Haddam deeded to William Spencer of same town all their right in land between Sammon River and Lyme bounds both divided and undivided The Hartford probate records show that he died at Haddam April 29 1695 and that his 2nd wife Miriam survived him."

ACKLEY, NICHOLAS, was located on lot No. 42 Trumbull street, in Hartford, in 1665, and was chimney viewer in Hartford in 1662--he for a time lived at 30 Mile Island, at the lower end of the Cove, and had a 6 acre lot toward Saybrook.

the sons of Nicholas, settled east of the Connecticut river

Nicholas Ackley was located on lot No. 42, Trumbull Street, Hartford, CT., in 1665. In 1662 he was chimney viewer in Hartford.

In the "Earliest Volume of the Town Votes of Hartford" appears this record, "It is ordered that evry howse shall have a ladder or tre at Most who shall reach (within) Two ffoote of the Topp of his howse uppon (the) forfeteur of fave shillings A mounth for (each) mounth he shall want the same." This vote gives us a hint only of the duties of a chimney-viewer, but Hinman, in his "First Puritan Settlers," makes the matter plain, thus--"As the office of Chimney-viewer is attached to the names of some of the first settlers, I take the liberty of explaining the cause. Immediately after the organization of the town of Hartford as a town, or, rather, as a company of land-holders, a law was enacted that all chimneys should be cleansed by the owner, once in a month, by a penalty provided by law. Therefore, that the law should be strictly obeyed and carried out by the inhabitants, for several years, a committee of respectable men (for no others held offices at that day) were appointed to see that all householders fully obeyed the law. It was also a law that each householder should provide a ladder for his house, where there was not a tree standing by his house, which reached within two feet of the top of the chimney. This law also came within the duties of the viewers of chimneys. At the time these laws were in force, men were selected to fill every office, high or low, with a single eye to the fact, that men who held the offices, should be of such a standing in society, as the men should honor their offices, and not the offices the holders of them. To effect this object, you find men who had filled a seat at the General Court, the next year filling the office of Hayward or Chimney-viewer. It was this practice of our worthy ancestors, which caused an officer--either civil or military, who held any place of power, to hold on to his titles with a tenacity--that living or dead--he never lost them."

Nicholas Ackley was one of the twenty-eight young men who, in 1662, bought the land where the Haddams and some adjoining towns now stand. This purchase was long denominated "The lands at Thirty Mile Island," from an Island in Connecticut River which, it was calculated, was thirty miles from its mouth. The Indians, who reserved for themselves forty acres, together with Thirty Mile Island, and the right to hunt and fish where they pleased, roamed over the plantation for many years.

Dr. Field says: "For forty or forty-five years from the time of settlement, the people were accustomed to carry arms with them to the place of public worship, that they might be able to defend themselves in case of a sudden attack." As the men could not have stayed in their homes with guns in their hands all the rest of the week, it is difficult to conjecture what comfort or security was left with the women and children. However, we have no account of any serious mischief to the first planters or their immediate descendants. All the inhabitants settled, at first, along the western border of the river, in what is now called Old Haddam. The larger number of their houses stood near together, on a hill overlooking at the present day, a landscape of great beauty.

Most of the owners of these lands settled on them in the summer of 1662 or soon after; but some of the company were so slow in improving their rights that action was taken by the little colony to prompt them. Nicholas Ackley was one of these delinquents and he was reminded that he was wanted at Thirty Mile Island, in a way that resulted in the following promise from him to assure them that he would in fact become one of them, although it was perhaps, pleasanter to view chimneys in Hartford:

"This writing made ye eight off November 1666 bindeth me niklis Akly of harford to come with my ffamely to settle att thirte mille Island by ye twenty ninth of October next inseuing date hearof ealso to have my part of fence up yt belongs to my home lot by ye Last of next insueing as of failing hearof to forfit ten pounds to ye inhabitant of thirte mile Island as witness my hand and Seall Nicholas Ackly witnes James Bate."

Nicholas Ackley appears to have kept this agreement, as he removed from Hartford, and his name is recorded among the "first settlers at Thirty Mile Island," where he had a "six acre lot towards Saybrook," and he owned the little island near the Cove. Every one of his sons, seven in number, moved to the east side of the Great River, but he died on the west side. Having settled there nearly thirty years before, he still kept his home on that side. Dr. Patterson says: "March 19, 1671-2, Nicholas Ackley and wife Hannah, of Haddam, deeded to William Spencer, of same town, all their right in land between Sammon River and Lyme bounds; both divided and undivided. The Hartford probate records show that he died at Haddam April 29, 1695, and that his 2nd wife, Miriam, survived him
