Subject: [AncestrySmithBrink] INFORMATION ON JOHN MOSS
From: Dkrkjt@aol.com
Ladies
This information is for Art Hall who is a descendant of John Moss.
WALLINGFORD TERCENTENARY CELEBRATION- 1970-Pages 25 & 26
John Moss was born about 1604 and died in 1707 in Wallingford aged 103. He
came with the first colonists to New Haven and signed the compact there in
1639. He was a representative to the General Court from New Haven for many
years. He held the rank of Corporal and was one of the original purchasers
of the town. He was also prominent in the establishment of the church.
John Moss joined with the magistrates and chief inhabitants of New Haven in
urging permission "to erect a village on our lands lying above ye great
plaine." Permission was granted October 10, 1667. For two years the
territory was prospected for an eligible site by John Moss, John Brockett,
Abraham Doolittle and others who suggested the site which was later chosen.
John Moss and John Brockett had come over together from England, arriving in
Boston June 25, 1637, with the Davenport Co. on the "Hector." It is probable
they resided in the same vicinity, Wallingford, England in Berks County about
10 miles from Oxford. At the time the General Court in Hartford named the
town, John Moss was Deputy to its session. It is presumed, therefore, that
we owe the selection of the town's name to John Moss.
He was 67 in 1670. He had a lot at the south end of the village, adjoining
his friend John Brocket and Samuel Brown. Failing to settle on it within the
time limited, his title was forfeited, and the committee handling such
matters gave it to John Moss Jr.
The title "Mr" is often found before his name, which was a mark of respect in
those days. It is said that Moss Rock here in Wallingford was names for him.
It goes on to name some of his descendants, which we have.
I think it is remarkable that people lived that long back then. Art is going
to send some more information to me later and I will pass it along as it
comes in.

John Moss (1603 or 1604-1707), a Puritan, was one of the earliest settlers of New Haven Colony. New Haven was founded in 1638 as a Puritan theocracy. In 1640 he signed a compact as one of the proprietors and planters of New Haven. He was a member of the first general court in 1639, 1648, 1649, and 1664. He was chosen corporal in 1642. John was elected commissioner eighteen times and it that capacity was authorized to perform marriage ceremonies, among other duties. He was named to committee to distribute commons lands. He headed a committee to organize a church, although in 1646 he was fined ten shillings for neglecting a church service. Occasionally he was appointed to defend the accused in civil court. Upon the union of New Haven with Connecticut in 1665, he was repeatedly appointed to attend the general court at Hartford, and was appointed a magistrate. In 1670 he was one
of the incorporators of the city of Wallingford, which was set off from New Haven. He died in Wallingford when he was 103 years old.

Note: Donald L. Jacobus, Families of Ancient New Haven, 1922-1932, 3 volumes
John was New Haven 1639, signed the original comp. 4 Jun 1643. He was representative 1667-1670, and then removed to Wallingford 1670, of which he was representative 1671-1673, yet continued as proprietor at New Haven, died aged 103, perhaps with slight exaggeration.
