    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.

    Notes:

    From Skillington et al., citation details below:

    John Webster III, whose domestic life was punctuated by a pathetic succession of lyings in and layings out, appears to have married shortly after his grandmother's death. His bride, Isabel, died in childbed within a year and he married again very soon, for another babe was laid in the churchyard before sixteen months were out. In those days, when no man could run a farm or a business without a helpmeet, he would not be accused of inconstancy.

    He prospered in business; the accounts show that he ranked extra land and that he was taxed quite highly for parish purposes. He became, after the squire and the parson, a leading man in the village; in fact, his name appears next after theirs in the articles of agreement made in 1585. It is interesting to note that these rules, that were "to conynew for ever," were drawn up at a time when England was in greater peril than she was ever to be again until 1940.

    John married (Unknown second wife of John Webster) after Aug 1560. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
