To the right honourable, the Earl of Shelbourne, His Majesty's principal Secretary of State for the Southern Department. This plan of the colony of Connecticut in North-America. Is humbly dedicated by his lordships most obedient humble servt. Moses Park. Novr. 24, 1766.

In 1633 the first English settlers created a colony at Windsor, and in 1635 settlers from Massachusetts founded the Saybrook Colony. By 1636 the region was drawing more and more people to the area, and the Connecticut Colony at Hartford was founded, followed by the New Haven Colony in 1638. One of the first constitutions in North America was drafted in 1639 - the "Fundamental Orders" - giving the state it's current nickname, the Constitution State. In 1662 the three major colonies were merged under a royal charter, creating a Crown Colony.

The state is now the 29th most populous state in the United States, though due to it's small size it is currently the 4th most densely populated state in the country.
