Do you have any location Country>Region/Province/State of his b, m or d?  Or do you know whom he married?

If he has a WikiTree profile, please add his ID #

Thanks for your reply, Chris.  Sorry, I need to correct myself on giving the wrong John Randall's birth year.  I meant to ask about his father who was born in 1629 perhaps in Bath, England. His wife was Lady Elizabeth. I thought there might be two John Randalls of about the same age, one in Stonington CT and one in Westerly RI, but I found this in Geni.com:  "settled at Newport, Rhode Island and by 1669 was a free inhabitant at Westerly. They later removed to Stonington, Connecticut but returned to his residence at Westerly because of religious differences in the two communities."  What I would really like to find out is who his father is-- Matthew Randall, mayor of Bath (according to geni.com) England, or Matthew Randall, a clergyman (according to Wikitree).    Very confusing, and haven't been able to figure out the sources. It would make a big difference in tracing earlier ancestors. I don't know what his Wikitree ID # is, but here's a link:  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Randall-5640

Randall-142 and Randall-5640 are being conflated in the description given. Randall-542 was b. 1629 and many family tree's have him related to the Bath, Somerset Randall family which included a Lord Mayor of London. See that profile for the disputed origins. That John Randall's wf. was Elizabeth who didn't have the title Lady. Hope this helps clarify.
Thank you, Leigh Anne!  Knowing the ID numbers helps.  I didn't know where to find them before this.  Now I can proceed.  My mother and brother before me in their family searches had followed the wrong line.
