    From the Wikipedia article about John Strong:

    John Strong (1610-1699) was an English-born New England colonist, politician, Puritan church leader, tanner and one of the founders of Windsor, Connecticut and Northampton, Massachusetts as well as the progenitor of nearly all the Strong families in what is now the United States. Often referred to as Elder John Strong to help tell him apart from his son, John Strong Jr., also present in New England in this same period.

    John Strong was born in England in about 1610 in Chard, Somerset, England and emigrated to Massachusetts with his pregnant wife and a one year old child in 1635 aboard the sailing ship Hopewell. During the 70-day sea voyage, his wife, Marjory Deane (md. 1632) had a baby while they were still at sea. She and their infant child died within two months of their arrival. With a one year old son to take care of, John Strong Jr., in December of 1635 John Sr. married sixteen year old Mary & John (1630) passenger Abigail Ford, daughter of Thomas Ford and Elizabeth Charde. They settled originally in Hingham, Massachusetts, in 1635. In 1638 he was made a "Freeman" (eligible to vote in town and colony elections and serve in the church), and went to Taunton, Massachusetts. While in Taunton, Strong represented the town in the General Court of Plymouth Colony for four years, from 1641 to 1644.

    He later moved to Windsor, Connecticut, on the Connecticut River where he was a leading figure in the new Connecticut colony. In 1659 he moved 40 miles further up the river to the Connecticut River town of Northampton, Massachusetts--then a frontier town surrounded by Indians about 100 miles (160 km) inland from Boston. One of the early settlers of the town, he operated a tannery for many years, helped defend the town against Indian attacks during King Philip's War (1675-1676) and also played an important role in town and church affairs.

    In 1661, John Strong was one of the eight men who founded the First Church of Northampton. Of their number, Eleazer Mather, the older brother of Boston minister Increase Mather, was chosen as the first pastor. Two years later, 1663, Strong was ordained an elder of the church. The Puritan pastor Mather died in 1669, and Strong was tasked with finding a suitable minister to replace him. The following year, he and several other church leaders extended a call to Solomon Stoddard, who formally accepted in 1672, and was ordained by John Strong. Stoddard served as pastor for many years, until his death in 1729, and was succeeded by his grandson, Jonathan Edwards, whose subsequent ministry in Northampton would play a major role in the Great Awakening.

    John Strong died on April 14, 1699, at Northampton and is buried at the Bridge Street Cemetery, Northampton, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    Also called Hewitt, Huett.

    From Stott, "The Higginson Family" (citation details below):

    He matriculated sizar from St. John's College, Cambridge, Easter 1611 and was curate in Cheshire and Knowle, Warws. He was probably the "Mr. Huett" who lectured in Shotwick, Ches., in 1622. His brother-in-law Rev. Samuel Clark was also connected to Knowle and Shotwick. Ephraim was chaplain in Wroxhall, Warws., until silenced by Archbishop Laud. He was in Wroxhall on 4 Nov. 1631, when he was party to an indenture involving land in Knowle. Elizabeth Tompson of Wroxhall referred to "my Minister Mr Huitt" in her will of 1637.

    The Huit family went to New England in 1639, settling in Windsor, Conn., where Ephraim was a teacher in the church until his death 4 Sept. 1644. His gravestone in the Old Burying Ground, Windsor, is reportedly the oldest surviving gravestone in Connecticut. His published works include The Anatomy of Conscience, or the Summe of Paul's Regeneracy (London, 1626), and The Whole Prophecie of Daniel Explained, by a Paraphrase, Analysis, and Briefe Comment (London, 1644). The latter book was published for his bookseller brother-in-law Henry Overton and included a dedication written by Simeon Ash, Samuel Clarke, and William Overton, the latter two being non-conformist ministers and Ephraim's brothers-in-law.

    He was baptized at St. Giles Cripplegate, London, 25 October 1565, the son of "Mr. Overton," as recorded in the parish register. Valentine's father was likely a near relative of Bishop William Overton, who presented Valentine with positions within his diocese. [...]

He was installed prebendary of Tarvin, Cheshire, by William Overton, Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield, on 31 October 1592.

During Britain's Civil War, he was one of thirty Puritan ministers who took refuge in the city of Coventry to escape Royalist persecution. He was described by his son-in-law, Rev. Samuel Clark, as "a constant, and painful Preacher of God's Holy Word." Clark described Isabel as "a gracious Woman, and an excellent Huswife, who took oft the whole burden of Family affairs, both within, and without Doors from her Husband, that he might with the more freedom attend his Holy Calling."
