      History of Fairfield, CT
      From time to time they were joined by a few other planters among whom were Giles Smith Simon Couch Henry Plaistead Joseph Lockwood Robert Rumsie Robert Meaker and Thomas Barnum The Bankside farmers appear to have lived in a luxurious manner for those days Some of them owned slaves and with the cheap hire of Indian labor they reaped large and valuable crops The inventories of their estates exhibit an accumulation of handsome fortunes In the month of November the General Court ordered that as Fairfield had not rendered a just & perfect list of the estates of her inhabitants according to the order of the Court that the sd town should pay twenty nobles as a fine for their neglect & contempt thereof & that they should pay rate for the present year according to the estates they had formerly given
