Does anyone have information on John Tey (d. 1641, Boston, Massachusetts)?

The only information I have found on John Tey of Boston, Mass., is his will in 1641 in which he names his cousin "Jackson of Watterton" (that would be Henry Jackson; Jackson-2047).  I did not find John Tey listed in The Great Migration Directory.   It would be helpful to know how John Tey and Henry Jackson are related.

Looks like they may have also spelled it Tay.

John Tay (-1641) & Elizabeth Allen, Nazing, Eng, 28 Aug 1621; Boston {Mrs. White's notes(confidential); Reg. 2:104}

Thanks Susan,

      That is interesting.  Nazeing, Essexshire, is also where the Eliot brothers, the Ruggles brothers, and the Payson brothers (all settlers of Roxbury) came from.  

     Anyway, I am now wondering if it was John Tey or his wife Elizabeth Allen who was actually a blood relative of Henry Jackson.
