Catalogue Note

John Chester (1749-1809) was born in Wethersfield and graduated From Yale College in 1766. He received a commission in the local militia in 1771 and the next year, began serving in the General Assembly. He was an active participant in the American Revolution, being one of the responders to the Lexington Alarm in April of 1775, although he and his men arrived after the battle. He saw action at the Siege of Boston, the Battle of Long Island, there as a colonel under General George Washington, and at Trenton and White Plains. He then retired from military service and returned to Connecticut, the law, and his wife, Elizabeth Huntington (1757-1834). He rose through the ranks of the General Assembly to Speaker of the House, and he served as a Justice of the Peace and a judge in the Hartford County Court. Chester likely met the Reverend Steward shortly after the latter\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’s arrival in Hartford in 1796. Steward was appointed deacon of the First Church of Hartford. That same year, the self-taught portraitist was given the use of a room at the newly constructed Connecticut State House as a studio and gallery. He later added other works, as well as curiosities to his gallery.
