Nathaniel RUST was born in Northampton, Massachusetts on 16 Nov 1671 (68) or 17 Nov 1671 (232).

Mercy ATCHISON was born on 30 Oct 1672 to John and Deliverance ATCHISON of Hatfield, Massachusetts. In 1677, when she was only about five years old, her father was killed by Indians (68).

In 1689, at the age of 16, Nathaniel served in King William's War (known as the War of Grand Alliance in Europe). He did not end his service until 1697 at the age of 28 (67).

On 17 May 1692, during his military service, Nathaniel married Mercy ATCHISON in either Northampton, Hampshire, MA (68) or Hadley Hampshire, MA (113).

On 24 Jul 1699, Nathaniel appeared before Springfield Office of Register of Deeds and took out a mortgage for two acres of land with house and barn in Northampton. The loan was financed by Richard Lord of Hartford. On 17 Jul 1702, he paid 11£ 4 shillings in cash to satisfy the loan (67, 232).

In 1700, Nathaniel left his home in Northampton and traveled south along the Connecticut River and arrived in Hartford, a young village in the woods. From there they headed east into a Connecticut wilderness to become the first settlers of what is now south Coventry in Tolland County. The journey was no doubt difficult. The Early History of Coventry, Connecticut (67) records this account as follows:
"On leaving Hartford Nathaniel directed his course eastward to a wild and unsettled wilderness and there made the first 'pitch' in what is now Coventry, Tolland Co., CT. The course followed by Nathaniel was along the Olde Connecticut Path (generally along U.S. Route 44), passed through the Notch at Bolton and continuing along the Path into the territory of Waungumbaug which was renamed Coventry. Finding two closely flowing sizable rivers (Skungamaug and Willimantic), he stopped to reconnoiter the area and finding also a most beautiful lake (Waungumbaug) with its surrounding fertile land, his mind was immediately made up where he was to make his first 'pitch.' This was in 1700; on the west side of this beautiful lake he erected the first house ever built there."

Nathaniel RUST was the first man to settle Coventry, CT and became one of its most prominent citizens (232).

By 1706, a few other families had settled in the area, so the 9 May 1706 session of General Court Hartford appointed a committee to lay out the town that was to include "Wm. Pitkin, Wm. Whiting Joseph Talcott, Richard Lord, and Nathaniel Rust, or any three of them." According to 69, the committee later submitted to the legislature the following report:
"We whose names are underwritten appointed by the General Court of Connecticut a committ. to layout the town of Coventry of the contents of six miles square in a greater tract or parcel of land given by Attawanhood in his last will, to certain men in and about Hartford. We have accordingly laid out the bounds of sd. town as followeth, viz.: "To butt or be bounded by Willimantic river on the E. partly on the bounds of Hebron, and partly on lands given by Joshua, Sachem in his last will to his children on the south etc. is bounded N. & W. by lands given to Hartford gentlemen by sd. Joshua. The sd. town bounded beginning at Willimantic river at a stake & stones set in a field or small enclosure of land made by Samuel Burchard joining the sd. river and thence runs west by the needle of the compass 6 1/2 miles to a heap of stones between two hills; & from that heap of stones it runs N. by the needle to 6 3/4 & 20 1/2 rods to a heap of stones mad on the N. side of a cedar Swamp commonly called Windsor cedar swamp; the sd. heap of stones it runs east by compass to Willimantic River. " Signed: Wm. Pitkin, Joseph Talcott, Wm. Whiting, and Nathaniel Rust.
The 11 Oct 1711 session of the General Court ordered that said town to be called Coventry. Coventry was incorporated less then a year later (232).

According to 232, Nathaniel and Mercy had 10 children. The first were born in Northampton but the last were born in Coventry. It would seem most likely that those that were Coventry-born were born after 1709. All 10 children were raised in the Coventry wilderness. The children eventually raised their own families in Coventry.
1. Experience RUST born Nov 1693. Married Samuel GURLEY. Died 23 Feb 1760 in Mansfield, Tolland, CT.
2. Nathaniel RUST Jr. born Dec 1695 in Northampton

9. Elizabeth RUST born 11 June 1713 in Coventry. My direct line ancestor.
10. Lydia RUST born 9 May 1716 in Coventry. Married Joseph HERRICK.

In 1709, Nathaniel sold his residence in Northampton (previously owned by Samuel Parson) and moved his family to Coventry (232).

The 11 Oct 1711 session of the General Court gave unto the committee the responsibility of "procuring and settling" a minister of the gospel (69).

Nathaniel's father died back in Northampton on 11 Nov 1712. He left Nathaniel about 61£ (67).

According to 232, Nathaniel RUST was extremely active in town affairs.
· He was elected a town selectman for 12 years (71), but the period is unclear in 232 where it records Nathaniel as being elected on 3 Dec 1714, 5 Dec 1715, and 6 Dec 1736.
· He was elected Tavern Keeper on 3 Dec 1714, 3 Dec 1716, and 10 Dec 1717 (232). He kept a tavern for many years (68). The requirement to be tavern keeper, at the time, was to own a stable room for two horses and a spare bed. Nathaniel established himself as a stopover for weary travelers (70).
· Nathaniel signed a 1716 petition to the CT General Assembly asking for settlement of town boundary disputes (Jan).
· He protested the re-deeding or forcing a re-conveyance of Mile and a Quarter - what the locals called Coventry for some time (232).
· He was elected to a committee to re-measure the town plat in 11 Apr 1720 (232).

· On 10 Feb 1726 or 1727, the town elected Nathaniel, Benjamin Carpenter, and Peter Buell to inspect and collect "sartin sums of money due to ye town upon and acount whatsoever" (69).

Mercy died on 21 Jan 1754 at the age of 80. Less than eight months later, on 9 Sep 1754, at the age of 82, Nathaniel married Mary ROSE (68, 232).

Nathaniel was 90 when he wrote his will. He made Samuel RUST and Ezekial HERRICK his executors (67).
