John was born about 1660.

"A memorandum left by the late Dr. John F. Gray of New York, who had much interest in family matters, and who was a man careful and exact in his statements, says: "Grandfather (the John Gray whose record is above quoted) told me his great grandfather, our ancestor, John Gray (i), came direct from England. Been in British Navy; had lost an arm, was a pensioner, half-pay. Lion couchant his family crest. My grandfather inherited a sleeve button made after the death of the half-pay ancestor from the thimble he wore over the stump of his arm.""[1]
