Note

Settled in Fairfield, CT in 1654.
29 May 1654, at New Haven. Christopher made affidavit about a visit to goodwife Knapp accused of witchcraft. She was executed. [In another place this date is given as 22 Jan 1661. Knapp was apparently not of the Knapp family that married into my Allen family. Hester, wife of Andrew Ward [the Wards being my direct ancesters] also testified that Goodwife Knapp had told her the wife of Thomas Staples was also a witch.]
He also served on a grand jury, 19 Sep 1692, to examine witches.
Purchased a home and house lot in Norwalk 27 Jan 1661. [ "Connecticut Puritan Settlers" by Royal R. Hinman] Will dated Dec 22 1701 in Norwalk CT
