His father was the original grantee at Newport N.S. from Tiverton, RI and Dartmouth, Mass. This John Densmore may have been the man of that name who in May 1776 was shown as John Densmore, tailor in Windsor N.S. who leased a farm from Michael Francklin of Halifax, N.S. The farm consisted of 24 acres and an island in the marsh lots of Windsor. The lease was to be based on the "Longest liver of John Densmore's daughter Elizabeth and his son William". This lease was transferred to Richard Nesbitt of Windsor, N.S. on April 3, 1778, (HCReg.BK.3/346). The traditional list of John Densmore's family does not include a daughter named Elizabeth nor a son William and for this reason there is the possibility that the man who leased the Francklin farm may have been a brother of James Densmore. John Densmore inherited under his father's will "that part of farm I purchased from Cornelius Potter with buildings - lies on south side of the road." (Research):HEN-30, DEN-1, HEN-53, MCL-1
