  1. 1.  John Webster, Governor of Connecticut was born before 16 Aug 1590; died on 5 Apr 1661 in Hadley, Hampshire, Massachusetts; was buried in Old Hadley Cemetery, Hadley, Hampshire, Massachusetts.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 16 Aug 1590, Cossington, Leicestershire, England

    Notes:

    Emigrated in 1635; first at Watertown, then in 1636 to Hartford, probably with the Rev. Hooker's party. His name is on the Founders Monument in downtown Hartford.

    His gravestone at Old Hadley cemetery was erected in 1818 by his descendant Noah Webster, the lexicographer, and gives the year of his death, incorrectly, as 1665.

    From Timothy Lester Jacobs at the Founders of Hartford site:

    He became an Assistant to the Connecticut General Court in 1639, which office he held until 1655. He was a Commissioner to the United Colonies of New England in 1654. He became Deputy Governor of Connecticut in 1655, then Governor in 1656. In 1657 he was named as Chief Magistrate.

    He was among the dissenters against Samuel Stone becoming Hartford's minister in 1659, and he left shortly after that as one of the leaders of the Hadley Company, although he first resided in Northampton, Massachusetts. He later removed to Hadley, where he was made a magistrate in May 1660, dying the next year on 5 April 1661.
