The Bliss Family
 in Hartford, Connecticut


Thomas Bliss, cousin of Thomas Bliss of Preston Parva and Rehoboth and George Bliss of Preston Parva and Newport, was probably from Painswick, Glos.  Born about 1590, Thomas married Margaret Hulins of Rodborough at St. Nicholas in Gloucester on October 18, 1621.  Thomas may have emigrated with his cousins about 1638, for he owned land in Hartford on the Connecticut River by 1639.  By the time of his death in 1650 or 1651, he owned 58 acres of land and a house lot on a road west of Lafayette Street in Hartford.  Margaret Bliss died in 1684.
