Hezekiah Wyllys
American, 1672 - 1741
Biography: Hezekiah Wyllys was the son of Governor George Wyllys (1590-1645) of Connecticut. He lived in the Wyllys Mansion on Charter Oak Place in Hartford, Connecticut. Three generations of the Wyllys family were all secretaries of the colony/state of Connecticut, effectively monopolizing the office from 1712 to 1809: Hezekiah Wyllys (1672-1741); his son, George Wyllys (1710-1796); and his grandson, Samuel Wyllys (1738-1823).
