Notes

Note: #H719
Note H719John and son Peter came from Norwich County, Norfolk, England in 1635 when Peter was about 18 years old. Just when they settled in Watertown, MA. is not known, but John owned a homestead and 6 acres there in 1642. It is probable that John and Peter accompanied Thomas Mayhew Jr. to Martha's Vineyard about this time and John purchased a house and considerable land there as shown by the records of the Vineyard. John died about 1660 and his widow Meribell was living in 1664.
