  • Notes 
    • Emigrated from Southampton, 5 Apr 1635, on the James; arrived in Boston 3 Jun 1635.

      He was a carpenter and innkeeper in Newbury. In Sep 1646 he was fined for "showing attentions" to Bridget Travers, wife of Henry Travers, and was "bound not to frequent her company." He was constable of Newbury in 1655, clerk of the Newbury market in 1656, and a Newbury selectman in 1661. In 1663 he was fined for entertaining Quakers in his house; in the legal proceeding, a witness testified that "two men quakers wr entertained very kindly to bed and table & John Emmerie shok ym by ye hand and bid ym welcome," and that "the witness heard John Emery and his wife say that he had entertained quakers and that he would not put them from his house and used argument for the lawfulness of it." He was also prominent in the case of Lt. Robert Pike, refusing to recognize the General Court's authority to deprive the men of the town of the right of petition. Walter Goodwin Davis describes John Emery as "a courageous man who did not hesitate to back his opinions with action."
