The Case of the Piglet’s Paternity: Trials from the New Haven Colony, 1639-1663

In the middle of the seventeenth century, judges in the short-lived New Haven Colony presided over a remarkable series of trials ranging from murder and bestiality to drunken sailors, frisky couples, faulty shoes, and shipwrecks. The Case of the Piglet’s Paternity assembles thirty-three of the most significant and intriguing trials from the records of the New Haven Colony. Join author Jon C. Blue for a fascinating look at colonial life in early America.

Jon C. Blue is a Superior Court Judge and presides over criminal trials in New Haven. Copies of his book will be available for purchase and signing. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
