He was born in  East Guilford, Connecticut, and after moving to Vermont in 1774, he was active in the Windsor Convention, which declared (1777) Vermont independent. He and Ira Allen drew up the constitution, and Chittenden was elected (1778) first governor. He remained one of the Allen party, and he held office (except 1789–90) through Vermont’s period of independence and early statehood until a few weeks before his death.

  1. I am a direct desc. of Thomas Chittenden and am trying to push further back from Elizabeth Dudley. What are your sources for her parents as Nathaniel and Hannah Hoyt? I have found others who put them as Ebenezer and Elizabeth Graves. I think there is some confusion here. Please help.
