  • Notes 
    • Emigrated to New England in 1630 on the Mary and John. First at Dorchester, then at Windsor. Inherited property in England in 1639; the following year he travelled back to England to deal with it, returning in 1641.

      He was one of the first twelve men elected to the lower house of Connecticut's first General Assembly in 1637, and in 1643 he was elected to the Magistrates, the upper house of that assembly where he was a member until his death.
