  • Notes 
    • Also called John Babcock.

      "John Babcock and his family were the only settlers to stay in Westerly during [King Philip's War], seeking protection from Connecticut. He joined the Stonington militia, and, according to tradition, was engaged in the 'Great Swamp Fight' on 19 Dec. 1675, the very day his son Elihu was born. While Westerly was controlled by Connecticut he was a freeman of that colony, but upon the conclusion of the war the town passed back under the jurisdiction of Rhode Island, even though Connecticut did not give up her claim to the area until 1728. On 12 June 1678 he was elected by the General Assembly of Rhode Island as Conservator of the Peace for Westerly. He served as Deputy from Westerly to the General Assembly in 1682 and 1684."
