Cemetery records from the Farmingbury area of Waterbury
(now Wolcott) list an African American with the last name
of Cambridge, no first name known, dying on October 22,
1782. Also in Farmingbury was an African American man
named Dan Cambridge, who died in 1788.
Waterbury tax records show a Stephen Cambridge first appearing
in 1781 in Farmingbury. Dan Cambridge first shows up in
Waterbury tax lists in 1783, and the two are the only
men in Waterbury with the last name Cambridge in this
time period. Both lived in Farmingbury.
