  • Notes 
    • Freeman, 1657; a merchant and tavern-keeper, and active in town affairs.

      Two pieces of evidence that he was the John, son of Richard Beldon, baptised 8 Feb 1634 at Ayringden are: (1), he said he was 27 years old in a deposition taken at Wethersfield in 1661, and (2) the medical journal of John Winthrop, Jr. recorded, in 1658, that John Belden's brother Samuel was 26 years old, matching up to the 1632 baptismal record of Samuel, son of Richard.
