||John Briggs Sr. migrated to New England during the Puritan Great Migration (1620-1640).|
Join: Puritan Great Migration Project
John was born in 1595. He passed away before 1687. He immigrated to New England before 1657 but was still in England as late as 1645, therefore, he was not formally part of the puritan great migration.
His sons Richard was born 1642 & William was born 1645 both in England and they immigrated with him after 1640.
There is no record of birth for Joanna but he did have a sister Joane. And there was another totally different Briggs family in Newport/Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
Also no record of birth for Hugh but he is mentioned in Taunton deeds along with his brothers William & Richard. And he was married in Taunton.

As far a FAG accuracy, I agree it is wanting. The location you mentioned at Oakland Cemetery in Taunton on FAG actually does NOT have a John Briggs buried there. There are 90 burials recorded there and he is NOT one of them. This evidently was someones made up grave. The Littleneck death date is correct so I am back on that to find a reason for him possibly being buried there since the Taunton location is bogus.

HOWEVER, the Taunton FAG record indicates a death date of 1690 which cannot be correct as there are documents from his son(s) that say he (John their father) was deceased in 1687

Bio indicates it is but needs more research in Marion,MA (formerly Rochester, MA)
