"(Bond found the baptism at Shelf, Halifax, Yorkshire, 17 Nov 1600, of Michael Barstow, son of Matthew Barstow [Bond 677]; Matthew Wood found the baptism at Halifax, 6 Jan 1600/1, of Michael Barstow, son of Michael Barstow of Northowram [NYGBR 121:98]. Given the size of this parish and the multiplicity of Barstow families therein, further research needs to be undertaken before we can identify the parents of Michael Barstow and his brothers.) There are also baptisms of Michael's (son of Michael) on 17 Feb 1599 and 18 Jan 1600 at St. john the Baptist in Halifax.
Four Barstow brothers lived in New England, Michael, William, George and John.
The time of John's arrival in New England is unknown. The inventory of Bozoun Allen was dated 22 Sep 1652 and mentions a debt due by John Bersto.
It is sometimes said he had a wife Hannah, who married Prince. By Michael Barstow's will, Hannah Prince had formerly been married to Michaels brother, William, not John.
The will of Michael Barstow, dated June 23, 1674, and proved 20 June 1676 made bequest to among others:
The wording of the will does not call John his brother, but in a matter in the Plymouth Court 1 Nov 1679, Lydia Standlake (formerly the wife of John's son Jeremiah) allowed to be guardian to her two sons John Barstow and Jeremiah Barstow was given permission to recover a legacy due them from the estate of their uncle Micaell Barstow, late of Watertown, deceased.
