Royal Hinman collected information on every seventeenth-century immigrant to New England, and then concentrated on those immigrants who came to Connecticut, tracing many of the lines into the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, providing information on thousands of Connecticut settlers.           

The author used a wide range of sources, frequently setting forth much biographical data on his subjects, even some of those who were not so prominent. On the genealogical side, he did not limit himself to vital records, but made extensive use of the probate records as well, not a common practice among genealogists of his time.

Hinman's project was too ambitious, and he only reached into the letter D in his sweep through the alphabet of New England settlers. At some point, he must have realized that he would not finish his study, for he appended to the portion he did complete a detailed account of the Hinman family.

Note: This book is also among the 22 volumes in our popular Compendium of New England Pioneers, which is available at 66% OFF the regular retail price of the individual books if purchased separately.
Despite the fact that he only made it about a quarter of the way through the alphabet, his massive efforts in behalf of Connecticut families make this an important reference for the families of that colony.

Hinman's frequent references to coats of arms should in most cases not be taken to mean that these heraldic achievements actually belonged to the New England settlers.
