    • Born about 1603, since he was freed from training April 1663, having then attained age of 60. Settled in Hartford by 1639, where he received land "by courtesy of the town"; not a proprietor or freeman. He wrote letter to John Winthrop, Jr., at New London, 22 Feb 1649, saying he was coming to settle there. Here he was one of the earliest settlers, but shortly removed to Fairfield, where he entered for record 17 Dec 1651, land purchased from George Stuckey, and by 1658 bought land also from John Fossecar and William Hayden. He died in 1669.
