  • Notes 
    • He was a hornbreaker. "In June 1678 Jonathan Watson and Joseph Beard saw him overtaken in drink, a habit which brought distress to his family. In 1680 the court took drastic steps, ordering him confined with one leg chained to a post, and supplied with materials for his trade, the proceeds to go for his and his children's maintenance. His letter to his wife 29 Jan 1682 mentions only his child. [...] In Boston drunk and abusing the constable 1684." [Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, citation details below.]

      After 1684, he is not seen again unless he is the John Waldron from Wells recorded as playing cards in a Boston tavern in Feb 1690, who paid a fine in court saying "There is something for you to make merry with" and was as a result sent to jail. This John Waldron was also sued in Suffolk court, Aug 1690.
