    Notes:

    Emigrated on the Lyon in 1632; first at Cambridge, then Hartford in 1636. His name is on the Founders Monument in downtown Hartford.

    From Timothy Lester Jacobs at the Founders of Hartford site:

    John White of Messing, Essex, England was a passenger on the ship Lyon, which sailed from England about 22 June 1632 and arrived at Boston 16 September 1632. His sister Mary married in Messing, Joseph Loomis, one of the founders of Windsor, Connecticut, whose children married into the families of Hartford Founders James Olmstead, Thomas Scott, and Thomas Judd. John White settled first at Cambridge, where his home lot was on the street then called Cow-Yard Row. He was admitted a freeman of Massachusetts on 4 March 1633. He was selectman of Cambridge starting February 1635. He probably was in the main body of the company of the Rev. Thomas Hooker in June 1636, removing to Hartford.

    In the Hartford land inventory of 1639/40, his home lot of about two acres was on the west side of the road from George Steele's to the Great Swamp. He owned in addition about forty acres of meadow; about thirty-two acres of upland; ten acres of swamp; and one hundred fifty acres of upland east of the Great River.

    He was chosen as selectman of Hartford in 1642, 1646, 1651, and 1656. When controversy arose between William Goodwin and Samuel Stone, John White signed the agreement to remove to Hadley on 18 April 1659. His home lot in Hadley was on the east side of Hadley Street, containing approximately eight acres.

    In Hadley he was chosen Selectman in 1662, 1663, and 1665. He also was Deputy to the General Court of Massachusetts in 1664 and 1669. He returned to Hartford after 1670, when the Second Church of Hartford, under the ministry of the Reverend John Whiting, was established. He was ordained Ruling Elder of that church, March 1677.

    John married Mary Levit on 26 Dec 1622 in Messing, Essex, England. Mary died before 1684. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    From Britannica.com (accessed 11 Sep 2020):

    Richard Dyer-Bennet, (born October 6, 1913, Leicester, Leicestershire, England—died December 14, 1991, Monterey, Massachusetts, U.S.), British-born American tenor and guitarist who helped to revive the popularity of folk music through his concert performances, recordings, compositions, and teaching.

    Though born in England, Dyer-Bennet grew up in Canada and California and attended the University of California at Berkeley (1932–35), where he studied English and music. (He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1935.) After visiting Swedish folklorist Sven Scholander in 1935, Dyer-Bennet adopted Scholander's trinity of song interpretation—poetry, melody, and lute accompaniment. In 1944, though, he switched to the Spanish guitar and gave the first of what would become annual solo concerts at New York City's Town Hall; the impresario Sol Hurok signed him for national and foreign tours for many years. He gained a cult following with his approximately 800 songs (including about 100 of his own composition) that ranged through British and French ballads, European medieval songs, Swedish shepherd tunes, and American cowboy songs. Curiously, though identified as a folk singer, he preferred the label minstrel or troubadour.

    Dyer-Bennet stopped giving concerts after a stroke in 1972 limited use of his left hand. From 1970 to 1983 he taught at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
