The Hartford History

The Hartford was founded in 1810 in Hartford, Connecticut. A group of local merchants gathered in a Hartford inn and, with working capital of $15,000, founded the Hartford Fire Insurance Company. The company survived some of the greatest peacetime tragedies in American history. After a huge fire destroyed New York’s financial district in 1835, The Hartford’s president, Eliphalet Terry, used his personal wealth to cover all of the company’s damage claims. Other catastrophic events included the Chicago fire of 1871 and the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.

The company logo shows a male deer, which in full maturity was referred to by the medieval hunting term hart. The etymology of ‘Hartford’ is the ford where harts cross (deer crossing). The Seal of the City of Hartford likewise features a mature male deer.
