  • Notes 
    • Emigrated to Salem in 1639-40 with his wife Priscilla and perhaps four or six children. Priscilla was admitted to the Salem church in 1647, but John was admitted only on 4 Apr 1647. Before that, in 1644, he and John Hathorne were appointed "to walk forth in the time of Gods worshippe" to take note of loafers.
