  • Notes 
    • He was a weaver. He may have been the Nicholas Busby who was a selectman in Watertown, Massachusetts in 1640 and 1644. Savage's G enealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England says "Nicholas Busby of Watertown came from Norwich in 1637, aged 50, with wife Bridget, aged 53, and four children." He definitely died in Boston, though.
