Joseph Knight was born about 1624 in Romsey, Southampton, England.[citation needed]

Joseph Knight, Sr. died 13 August 1687 in Woburn, Massachusetts.[1]

He married, apparently 10 Dec 1649 Hannah Lamb. Online trees claim Watertown, but no such marriage is recorded in the published Watertown vital records; nor is such a marriage recorded in Woburn, MA, where the family resided
