From Genealogy of Some Descendants of Captain Matthew Fuller, John Fuller of Newton, John Fuller of Lynn, John Fuller of Ipswich, Robert Fuller of Dorchester and Dedham.:

John Fuller, son of William, aged about 15 years, came to America on the ship Abigail, May 4, 1635, from England, with his brother William, aged about 25 years...

John settled in Ipswich and married Elizabeth Emerson, daughter of Thomas Emerson, who came to America in 1638, settled in Ipswich, and died there May 1, 1681, aged 81.

John Fuller removed to Salisbury about 1639, but returned to Ipswich before 1648, and was town surveyor in 1663; commissioner in 1664, and owned land near Rocky Hill. He died June 4, 1666, at Ipswich, and his widow married, between 1666 and 1672, Thomas Perrin. His will was proved Sept. 25, 1666, and names sons John and William, "who have been sufficiently supplied by their uncle," daughters Susannah and Elizabeth -- "their grandfather hath early given them a portion"; names wife, sons James, Thomas, Nathaniel, Joseph, daughter Sarah, and a child unborn, to have one seventh each, with wife and son James as executors.
