Isaac was of Boston about 1640, and removed to Charlestown, before 1644. In
1645 he went with John Winthrop Jr., to New London, CT. What is known about
him there is given in Mrs. Caulkin's History of New London. From this we
learn that in 1645 Isaac Willey and John Stebbins mowed the meadows of the
Upper Mamacook. At a meeting held 25 Feb 1647, he was chosen with John
Winthrop, Robert Hempsteed, Samuel Lothroup and Thomas Minor, "to act in all
Toune affaires;" and at the same meeting he was granted "to have a planting
lot at the other side of the cove, near Mr. deane winthrops lot.". The first
grantee was John Wimthrop and Isaac Willey was the fifth after him, "his
home lying north west of Mr. Winthrop's on the upper part of what are now
Williams street and Main street." More information available.
