    From: A Genealogical History of the Jennings Families in England and

    "Phileman Jennings attended the Classical School of Dr. Timothy Dwight,
    at Greenfield Hill. He studied navigation and qualified himself to take
    charge of a ship, at the age of fourteen years. He left school to learn
    the practical part, and shipped for St. Domingo. His first voyage was
    successful; on the second voyage his ship was taken by a British
    man-of-war and all on board made prisoners. As soon as he was exchanged
    he enlisted in the Revolutionary army, and was stationed in the fort
    under Lieut. Isaac Jarvis, (the garrison consisting of twenty-three men)
    within cannon shot of Fairfield. On July 8th, 1779, when the British
    under Gov. Tyron burned Fairfield, they made several attempts to take the
    fort by storm, but this small garrison gallantly defended and held out to
    the end. After the war he returned to Weston."--Manuscript of Francis A.
    White.
