Daniel Warner was baptized on 16 May 1658 in Farmington, Connecticut, America.2 He and Thomas Warner were (an unknown value.) Circa 1670 in Waterbury, in New Haven, Connecticut, America, Daniel Warner married Sarah Roe. Thomas(2), John(2), and Daniel(2), sons of John(1) were granted lots in Mattetuck when the plantation was authorized. (lots 23, 18, and 20 respectively.)3 Daniel Warner was an heir in the will of John Warner on 14 March 1678/79 in Farmington, Connecticut, America.4
DANIEL WARNER died in 1679, shortly after his father, who died the same year. His wife, SARAH ROE, was given the rights to the lot alloted to DANIEL. The lot was on the east side of Bank Street between Main and Grand Streets. Before his death, DANIEL built the cellar of his house on his house lot, near where South Main Street begins, and also the part of Exchange place that was taken for that street when South Main was laid out about 1806. It probably included the site of Apothecaries' Hall. The cellar was built before the location of the highway was laid out and apparently was an intrusion upon the road. The results of this intrusion can be seen today by the curved line of the east side of Bank Street. After DANIEL died, SARAH married second John Warner, of Springfield, Hampden, MA, not related to DANIEL WARNER. They were married Aug. 31, 1683, and had one child, Nathaniel, born Aug. 19, 1684.

Abraham Andruss

b. circa 1645, d. December 1729
     Abraham Andruss was also known as Abraham Andrews. He was born circa 1645 in Fairfield, Connecticut, AmericaG.1 He was the son of Thomas Andruss. Circa 1670 in New Haven, Connecticut, America, Abraham Andruss married Rebecca Carrington, daughter of John Carrington and Joanne (?). Abraham Andruss and John Carrington were among the thirty who signed the articles of 1674 establishing Mattatuck which is now called Waterbury. John Carrington's house lot of two acres was on West Main Btreet, the south side, about where Leavenworth street now runs. It was bounded north and south on highway, east on Timothy Stanley, west on George Scott. It was sold, in 1710, by the heirs, to Timothy Stanley and George Scott, for 12 pounds.1 Abraham Andruss recorded a deed on 22 January 1680 in Mattatuck, New Haven, Connecticut, AmericaG. He had an £80 propriety, and was among the earliest settlers of Mattatuck. The property had a tan-yard indicating he was a tanner.1 His name is on all the lists of those who had early divisions of fence. He and Timothy Stanley were the first townsmen, or selectmen of the town, they being spoken of as holding this oflice in 1681. He subsequently occupied the same position in 1690, 1692,1706, 1707, 1711, 1716. He was town surveyor in 1700 and afterwards; a deputy to the General Court at tlie May session, in 1712; one of the signers of the agreement to pay Mr. Peck £60 per year, in 16S9, and a frequent member of important committees appointed by tlie town and proprietors. On the whole, he was a man of considerable note among the first settlers of Waterbury.1 Andruss had a *' house lot" in Nov., 1687, at the west end of the village, near where the late Dr. Buckley lived. It was bounded east on John Welton, west on " a great lot," (the corner lot.) Nothing is said of a house. The lot was conveyed, April 18th, 1696, to David Scott, and afterwards to Robert Scott, Thomas Judd, Jr. and John Southmayd. There is no house mentioned in any of the conveyances.
"January 22 1680 [?] the town granted to abraham andrus senor a peic of land buting on ye mill Riuer and on ye common fenc aganst sr andruses three acre lot prouided it do not pregedis high waycs and he build a hous or set up a tan yard."
This lot was recorded in 1687, as four acres, and is described as butting north on the common, easterly on the river, southerly on the common, westerly on the top of the hill. March 10, 1704, it was again recorded, and is mentioned as containing 3 acres, with a dwelling house, " butting south on the common fence, north and west on the highway, east at the southeast corner coming to the river, and at the northeast corner falling four rods and a half from the mill river, so cattle may pass safely over the river."
It was situated below the mill, immediately below the present bridge, on the west side of the river, bounding on the river at the lower corner, and falling four and a half rods from it, next the road which came from the village. From the fact tliat a tan-yard is mentioned in the original grant, it is probable that Andruss was a tanner
.1 He recorded a deed in 1717. In 1717-8, when it became necessary to provide for declining years, Andruss conveyed to his youngest son, Thomas,
lands, &c., as follows—(the deed is signed by a mark, and bears the date of January 4th, 1717) :
"For and in concediration of my son thomas andrus who now lives with me tacking the care of my self and my wife while we live unles my wife should be left by me and mary again and finding of us with a sutable and comfortable maintenance and tacking the whole care of us both while we live both in sixnes and in helth and for the loue and good will which I do bare towards my son thomas -- I giue him the whole of my teame and all the tackling there unto belonging both of Iron and wood and all tools that I have that is nesary to carry on husbandry work. I give unto my son thomas all the lands I stand posest of within the bounds of Waterbury with the bulding fencing orcharding thare to belonging and the whole of my propriety in the undeuided land he to tacke posesion of the one half now and the other half at my deceas [&c.]."1 When the new meeting honse was seated, in 1729, " Good- man Andruss and his wife" were placed in the seat next the pulpit, on the west side, opposite the minister, this high posi- tion being due to their age and worth. But the poor man died soon after, or before December of the same year, he being the last (who settled in Waterbury) of the original thirty subscribers.
His inventory, taken in Dec, 1731, amounted to £36, 15s.1
