The Scott family history begins with Winston’s great-grandfather Michael Scott, arriving from England in 1883 to work as a weaver.
In 1894 he purchased 50 apple trees.
Around 1902, his sons Walter and Wilfred began to supplement their work in the woolen mills by farming part time in East Lyme.
Eventually Walter and his wife Lillian, along with their sons R. Woodrow and Wainwright, established their orchards and farm stands on the Boston Post Road in East Lyme, CT.
Woodrow Scott married Jane Meadnis in 1945 and they had nine children – Enid, Walter, Naomi, Woodland, Winston, Wilson, Wayne, Webster and Whitney.
At one time, all seven sons were employed on the family farm, eventually marrying and venturing out on their own.
