    Notes:

    He was a woolen-draper. One of the founders of Windsor, Connecticut.

    That he was from Braintree in Essex is established by a deposition dated 30 Jul 1639, the original of which is still extant, by Joseph Hills of Charlestown (Massachusetts), who says that he, Joseph Hills, came to New England in 1638 on the Susan & Ellen and that the ship also contained various goods and commodities belonging to Joseph Loomis "late of Brayntree in the County of Essex, Woolen-draper." (Loomis and his family were in fact also on the Susan & Ellen, but their presence was not germane to Joseph Hills' deposition.) In addition, the will of Joseph Loomis's father-in-law, Robert White, 27 May 1617, includes a bequest to "my daughter Marie the wife of Joseph Lummis of Branetree".

    Probably spent their first year at Dorchester, then removed overland to Windsor, Connecticut.

The next five families are Edward Griswold and Margaret, Joseph Loomis and Mary White (daughter of Robert and Bridget above), Gerard Spencer and Alice Whitbread, Thomas Ford and Elizabeth Charde, and Thomas Bliss and Margaret Hulins, each with a Mormon posterity of 270,000 and an American posterity of 18 million."
