Biographical or historical data :

James Udall was born on Sept. 10, 1779, in Hartford (or possibly South Woodstock), Windsor County, Vermont, the son of Samuel Udall (1739-1805) of Stonington, New London, Connecticut, and Lydia Chapman. On Sept. 23, 1809, James married Sophiah Downer Champlin (born Sept. 7, 1791), daughter of William Champlin and Content Leeds Brown of Connecticut. During his lifetime in Hartford, James Udall held such public offices as selectman, town representative to the general assembly and probate court judge (1839-1840), and was said to be a founding member of the local Masonic Lodge.

When James' father, Samuel Udall, died in 1805, he left the 500-acre Quechee farm to his son James, with widow's rights retained for his wife Sophiah. In 1862, the property passed to Henry Douglass Udall, James' youngest son. The dwelling-house survives today, in nearly original condition, as a Vermont State Historic site. The property is known alternatively as the Burtch-Udall Homestead and the Theron Boyd Homestead.
