Biography

Genealogies of Connecticut Families by Gary Boyd Roberts, p. 579-80: birth & death info. Lexington records mention only the birth of David, in Apr 1705 he and his wife are found in Canterbury, when their first child was born. In 1714 Samuel Adams and Obadiah Johnson conveyed a farm of 136 acres to David Monrow, by deed recorded in Canterbury. They joined the Canterbury church in 1722. In 1723, received 1 1/2 acres of land, as one who paid towards the meeting house and ministers' house, which were completed in 1711. His will was probated 8 Sep 1755. The identity of David of Canterbury as the son of William Monroe of Cambridge Farms was questioned because he is not mentioned in William's will; but after much careful research Rev. Mr. Northrup and Dr. Will S. Monroe published in the "Genealogy of Josiah Munroe" that David was without doubt the son of William.
