Height 76 1/4 inches, width 38 1/2 inches.On the banks of the Five Mile River, a Connecticut coastal estuary, the Raymond family began its long association with the oyster industry. Harvesting the area's plentiful oyster beds and later 'seeding' and farming oysters led to a thriving business supplying New York City and parts of Europe, reaching its peak in the late nineteenth century when Rowayton and Norwalk were the "Oyster Capital of the World."Richard Raymond, the family's early ancestor, was involved in coastal trade with the Dutch and English in Manhattan and around 1662, purchased land in the Norwalk area. His great-great grandson, Gershom Raymond (1725-1806) owned almost all of lower Five Mile River. He married Abigail Taylor in 1749 and by the time their youngest child was born in 1762, they were living on Rowayton's main street, which came to be known as Oystermen's Row. During the Revolutionary War period, Gershom, a member of the 3rd Connecticut Regiment, was elected to the Committee of Safety and the Fairfield County Congress. In 1790 he built an eight-room house on Wilson Ave. for his son, Gershom II and daughter-in-law, a house that still stands today.
