General note

The neighborhood in the town of Norwich, CT, now called Chelsea Landing, began as a public landing built on the then-colony's Thames River in 1694 to accommodate the increasingly busy coastal shipping traffic and later industrial mills. In 18th-century newspaper advertisements, the landing was often referred to as "New Chelsy," and was frequented by Occom and other missionaries and associates who traveled to and from the area by boat.
