Old Saybrook CT Town Travel Business Information
Welcome to the Connecticut shoreline town called Old Saybrook.
The Saybrook Colony was established in late 1635 at the mouth of the Connecticut River, in what is today Old Saybrook, Connecticut and its environs. John Winthrop, the Younger, son of the Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, was designated Governor by the group that claimed possession of the land via a deed of conveyance from the Earl of Warwick. Winthrop was aided by Colonel George Fenwick and Captain Lion Gardiner. As the principals of the group who had planned to settle the colony were supporters of Oliver Cromwell and remained in England during the English Civil War, the colony struggled.
In 1644, Fenwick agreed to merge the colony with the more vibrant Connecticut Colony a few miles up river, which purchased the land and fort from him.
