Frederick G. Parker and Mary Burdick, parents of Frank E. Parker, were reportedly born in Centerbrook and Westbrook, respectively. Centerbrook and Westbrook were originally part of the Saybrook Colony. The following was taken from "A Brief History of Essex," by Don Malcarne, Town Historian:
"The Saybrook Colony was first settled at Saybrook Point adjacent to the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound in late 1635. This was not part of the Colony of Connecticut originally, and encompassed an area that today includes the towns of Old Saybrook, Old Lyme, Lyme, a small section of East Lyme, Essex, Deep River, Chester, and Westbrook. It became part of Connecticut in the mid-1640s, and by early 1648, had been divided into formal quarters. One of these sections was Potapoug Quarter and included what now are the towns of Essex, Deep River, and Chester, with their villages of Centerbrook, Ivoryton, and Winthrop."
