It all started when...

Captain George Denison and his lovely wife Ann Borodell Denison, affectionately referred to as Lady Ann, brought their family to live in a lean to hut in Mystic, CT in 1654. From there,  Captain George went on to become a surveyor, selectman, deputy to the General Court in Hartford and a brave captain in the King Phillips War earning him a substantial land grant.  Once in Mystic their family continued to grow and blossom and they became a well respected family within the area.  In 1663, Captain George raised the roof to his great manor house at Pequotsepos. In this home, he and Lady Ann raised their growing family until their deaths in 1694 and 1712, respectively.  In 1717, that manor house burned down and the current house was built by their grandson Captain George Denison and his wife Lucy Gallup Denison.  Since it's construction in 1717, six continuous generations have called this stately manor house their home.
