The earliest Phelps who settled in New England arrived in 1630 and hailed from Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire, England. Shortly thereafter, the family migrated to Windsor, Connecticut, where they prospered and became prominent in politics. By the time of the American Revolution, the Phelps could be found throughout Connecticut, residing mostly in Hartford and Litchfield Counties. Tavern-keeping proved a popular occupation for family members. By 1800, there were at least four Phelps taverns situated in northwestern Connecticut and located within twenty-five miles of one another.
