US ambassador set to visit to Groton
An American ambassador with ancestral connections to Groton will visit the village this month.
Matthew Winthrop Barzun, who is the American ambassador in London, is a direct descendent John Winthrop, the first governor of Massachusetts and founder of Boston, who came from Groton.
Mr Barzun is visiting the village with his wife, Libby, and mother, Serita, on June 24. It’s the second time an American ambassador has visited Groton in 18 years.
