Encyclopedia > Roger Ludlow

Roger Ludlow (1590-1664) was one of the founders of the colony (later the state) of Connecticut. He was born in England. He founded Fairfield in 1639 and Norwalk in 1651. He moved to Windsor--Connecticut's first town--in 1634, the year after its founding. In 1636 he presided over the first court held in Connecticut (in Windsor) and was the principal framer of the Fundamental Orders, adopted by the colony in 1639. The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut is the world's first written constitution for a self-governing people. He also completed the first codification of Connecticut laws, known as Ludlow's Code or the Code of 1650. Roger Ludlowe Middle School and Fairfield Ludlowe High School, both in Fairfield, are named for him.
