Notes

Note N6628BIO:John Greene was born in 1597, Probably at Bowridge Hall, Gillingham,
Dorsetshire, England, where his father Richard and grandfather Richard (
son of Robert ) resided. He was married in 1619 at St. Thomas Church in
Salisbury, Wiltshire, England, to Joan Tattersall, and there he did
practice his profession as a surgeon. He sailed in the ship "James" on
April 6, 1635 from Southampton, Eng. and arrived in Boston on June 3,
1635. He lived in Salem, Mass for two years and was a friend of Roger
Williams. On August the 1st. 1637, he was bound in 100 marks to appear at
the next Quarter Court for having spoken contemptously of the Mag-
istrates. At this he departed for Providence to join Roger Williams. On
Sept. 29, 1637 he was fined 20 Pounds and to be commited till paid, and
enjoined not to come into the jurisdiction of this Court upon pain of fine
and imprisonment at the pleasure of the Court for speaking so
contemptuously of Magistrates. On March 12, 1638 he sent a letter to the
General Court of Mass. charging them " with usurping the power of Christ
over the churchs and men's consciences" etc., and for this he was ordered
not to come into Mass. under pain of imprisonment and furthur censure. He
was one of the twelve to whom Roger Williams deeded the land he bought on
Oct. 8, 1638 from Canonicus and Miantonomoh. In the same year he was on of
the twelve original members of the First Baptist Church. For 144 Fathoms
of Wampum he and ten others on Jan. 12, 1643 then bought from Miamtonomoh
the tract of land which became the town of Warwick Sept. 12, 1643 the men
of Warwick were summoned to Boston on the complaint of Pomham and
Socconocco, but they refused to go, as they claimed they were beyond the
limits os Mass. authority. Soldiers were sent and besieged the settlers in
a fortified house. He escaped but all the rest were carried to boston and
imprisoned until March, when they and he were banished. With two others he
went to England to obtain redress for thier wrongs. He was oblieged to
take a ship from New York, he returned in 1646 successful. He was
commisioner in 1654, 1655-6-7. His wife Joan died about the time of his
leaving from England. He married Alice Daniels, a widow, who died in 1643.
He Married again this time to Phillis (?), who survived him and died Mar.
10, 1688. He Died in 1658, leaving a will which was proven Jan. 7, 1659.
He named his wife, Phillis executrix (except as to matters with William
Arnold, which his son John was to attend to). In the will he gives to his
wife, sons John, Peter, James, and Thomas and to daut. Mary Sweet and
grand child Ann Hade ( his daut. Joan's child).

(Reposting for Rick P without the long URL)

I found the information you list in "Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620-33". Surgeon John Greene did not arrive until 1635. See "Greenes of Rhode Island" 1903, pages 52-58, for a description of Surgeon John Greene's life. www.archive.org/stream/greenesofrhodeis00gree

I think any information from the John Greene in GMB (812-814) should be removed from this profile.

There are many people named John Greene. A Google search says that Anne Scargell is the wife of the John Green born in 1585, but I am not sure I believe that either. The Surgeon John Greene was married three times, but none were named Scargell. He only had children with Joanne Tattershall.

Okay, I've detached Perserverance Johnson and her children from John Greene of Warwick, RI. I'll leave RI-John Greene to you all. But it looks like what's in the narrative does not match the marriages you've got up top-- who was Anne Scargell?

No Ann Scargeel, no Joanne Tattershall.

Children per GMB: 1) John b abt 1620; will implies he died single; removed to Stow. 2) Jacob b abt 1623; m by 1654 Elizabeth; remained in Charlestown? 3) Abigail, sailed for NE in 1632; NFR 4) (prob) Joseph, sailed for New England in 1632; NFR 5) Mary, b Charlestown 1 Apr 1634; m by 1658 Thomas Stevens.
