I believe his grandson is John King of Northampton, Massachusetts and the John King was not the son of Sir John King.  Sir John King was from northern England and settled in Boyle, Ireland.  Kings House is today a popular tourist site in Boyle. Just miles to the South lived Reverend Edward King in Richmond House near Elphin, Ireland. Reverend Edward King was born in Stukely, England just north of London.  He had fifteen kids. Second oldest named John.   I think he matches up as very likely son of John son of Edward.  Edward born 1577.  John born 1611.  John, Jr. born 1629.

It would be Reverend Edward King, born 1577 in Stukely, England.  Second son John King born in Elphin, Ireland circa 1611.  Grandson John King born 1629 in Elphin. 1645 takes ship to Massachusetts at Age 16.  John King was second son.  Second sons inherit zero.  Grandson Edward King, an English Protestant kid in Catholic Ireland.  Comes to America.  Becomes very popular.  Dozen page bio on Internet of John King.  Daughter marries into Judge William Clarke's family. Co signs document opening up greater New England to settlement (or conquering by white settlers).  Not son of Sir John King of Boyle, Ireland, because John Milton wrote poem about death of Cambridge classmate John King, Jr. in boating accident with no descendants.  This led me to conclusion that John King of Northampton, Massachusetts was really the grandson of Reverend Edward King, the longest serving Anglican Bishop of Ireland who very oddly lived just ten miles south of Sir John King and does not appear to have been directly related.
