  • Notes 
    • John was a landowner and one of the thirty nine original settlers of Norwich, Connecticut. He was the first County Clerk and Schoolmaster there. He is also said to have owned property inLebanon, Franklin, and Bean Hill, Connecticut. By the many documents he signed while Clerk, he fixed the present spelling of the family name. (See Burpee's Story of Connecticut). He was a Deputy to the General Court of Connecticut from Norwich in October, 1691. His autograph can be found in Caulkin's History of Norwich.
      He was one of the four original proprietors the five miles tract purchased from Owaneco the Indian in 1692, and moved there about 1698.
      Can anyone imagine the pain and anguish John and his wife must have endured? Out of thirteen children, six died under the age of five, including the first five children the couple bore.
