Excerpt from Biographical Memoir of Asaph Hall, 1829-1907

In commencing the story of a remarkable man of science, it is necessary to say something of his lineage, in spite of the generally held opinion that the details of genealogy make dry reading.

Asaph Hall undoubtedly descended from John Hall, called of New Haven and Wallingford to distinguish him from the other numerous John Halls of early New England (Savage makes no less than seven before 1660), and who arrived at New Haven shortly after June 4, 1639, as he is one of the after-signers of the New Haven Planters' Covenant. His movements before his arrival are in some obscurity. From his son Thomas of Wallingford receiving a grant of fifty acres of land from the General Court of the Colony at the session of October, 1698, "In consideration of his father's services in the Pequot war," it is inferred that he was a dweller in the colony in 1637. At this date there were only four settlements in Connecticut, and it is supposed that the John Hall of New Haven is identical with a John Hall who appears as the holder of lots in Hartford about 1635. The genealogists are in dispute in the matter. Mr. Shepard sums up thus: John Hall came with the advance Hooker party, in 1632, or perhaps on the Griffin or the Bird (two vessels whose arrival at Massachusetts Bay is mentioned by Winthrop), September 4, 1633.
