About 100 Puritans, led by the Rev. Thomas Hooker, created a settlement on the banks of the Connecticut River in June 1636. Though this became Hartford, Hooker and his followers were not the first Europeans on the scene.
West Hartford, CT was incorporated in 1854; it had been a part of Hartford Parrish. First set apart as a separate Parrish so that the people on the west side wouldn't have to make the trip to the center of Hartford to worship, the division was requested in a petition to the General Assembly in 1710. They wished to establish a church in their district. See the link below for more history of the church leadership that led to the creation of West Hartford.
To protest the war
The Hartford Convention was a series of meeting in Hartford, discussing grievances about the War of 1812. The main topics were New England's secession (which was never acted on), removing the three-fifths compromise, and the American relation with Great Britain and France. Nothing much happened other than these talks.
