    • Jonathan was born in 1646, in Saybrook, Connecticut. His parents were Thomas and Mary Conway Tracy. He was one of the founders of Preston, New London, Connecticut. The first recorded Town Meeting took place on 30 March 1687. The first order of business wa s to choose a Recorder [town clerk]. Jonathan Tracy was chosen for this position. No other officials were appointed at the first meeting. The business that followed dealt with the granting of land; thus the need for the Recorder being the first official chosen. Jonathan was Commissioned Lt. of the Preston militia, May 1690. Jonathan was Selectman of Preston in 1698, and served as Town Clerk until his death. Colony law required that every town have an 'ordinary'. This term was used very early but changed to the more familiar 'tavern'. Jonathan Tracy was the first Ordinary Keeper. From the town records, 1698 jenewary 25: jonathan Tracy was chosen ordinary keeper. Jonathan married in Preston, on July 11, 1692, Mary Griswold. Jonathan and Mary had at least nine children in Preston.
