  • Notes 
    • Westerly is only the first possible place Torrey lists for his marriage; the others are Stonington (next door to Westerly), Norwich CT, and Roxbury CT. Torrey doesn't name the wife.

      The unsigned and unsourced Find a Grave page for a Jonathan Armstrong 1630-1701, father of Benjamin Armstrong 1648-1717, has him in Westerly 1670.

      "JONATHAN ARMSTRONG, of Westerly or Pawcatuck, R.I., settled in the debatable part of the Narragansett territoryy, called in the native speech Mesquamicuck, by the English Squamicuck, claimed by Connecticut jurisdiction as belonging to their plantation of Stonington. He removed in 1670 or 1678 to Norwich, probably as land was granted to him there. He probably removed afterward to Roxbury, Mass., where his daughter Mercy died, October 2, 1694, and Martha died December, 1709."
