    Notes 
    • He settled in Concord, MA by 1639 and was made freeman Jun 1641, removed we suppose in Sep 1644 with Rev. Mr. Jones, the Wheelers and others to Fairfield. Here he died in 1648 and it may be guessed that he or his wife was closely related to Ann wife of Thomas Wheeler Sr. for in her will 1659, which was witnessed by Robert Turney, Mrs. Wheeler gave her best hat to Rebecca Turney.

Receipts were given to Joseph Middlebrook in 1661 by Nathaniel Seeley in behalf of his wife and for use of sister Sarah; John Wheeler in behalf of his wife and for use of sister Ruth Turney and brother Benjamin Turney and sister Rebecca; and Stephen Sherwood who married the said Rebecca acknowledged receipt of her portion; also Thomas Sherwood receipted to Middlebrook for his wife's portion. John Wheeler by 1673 purchased from Stephen and Matthew Sherwood all their interest in right of their wives, the daughters of Benjamin Turney deceased.
