96 Palisado Avenue, Windsor, Connecticut – home of Walter Fyler, brother of Anne Fyler

Walter Fyler (my 9th g-grand uncle) settled in Windsor, Connecticut in 1636, as did the rest of the Hoskins family, including my 9th g-grandmother, Anne Fyler. Walter was a lieutenant in the Pequot War 1637, for which he received a land grant on 24 Feb 1640. The site on which he built his home is now occupied by the “Strong House”, which is the headquarters of The Windsor Historical Society (96 Palisado Avenue, Windsor, Connecticut). A memorial in the Old Burying Ground reads: Erected to the memory of Lt. Walter Fyler, died December 12,1683, and his wife, Jane Irving Fyler, died September 11, 1690. Erected July 1969 by the Fyler Family Assn., Inc. In 1925, when the house was acquired by the Society, it was known as “the 1640 Lt. Walter Fyler House”, thought at the time to be one of the oldest wood-frame houses in the state. In its early years, the Fyler house operated as an historic house museum, archives, tea room, and hostel.  In 1999 the Fyler House underwent a name change and significant reinterpretation after architectural analysis and primary source research revealed the house was built around 1758, not 1640. The “John and Sarah Strong House”, as it is now named, stands on land owned by Lt. Walter Fyler.
