The birth of John is recorded at Boxford as 21 Feb. 1710. It seems probable that when, years later, John Hazen had all his children recorded at Norwich, a mistake was made as to the exact age of his firstborn, for John, the eldest child, is there recorded as born 21 Feb 1711/12. It is possible that there were two Johns born exactly a year apart, but the above explanation is more reasonable. The birth of Hannah is given above as on the Norwich town record; on the Lyme records the same child is given as born 18 May 1731 at Norwich. The birth of Thomas, according to his own family record, was 16 Jan. 1733, but as he gives the name of his father John on that record, there can be no question that he is to be identified with the Thomas born in Lyme. The case of Hannah proves that either the father or the town clerk was not to be relied on, and considering the numerous cases among the descendants, of parents who cannot give the ages of children, and sometimes not even their own, accurately, such discrepancies ought to have no great weight. He received land from his father by a deed dated 25 Jan. 1736/7; "I John Hazen of Lyme for ye love good will and natural affection I have owe and do bear unto my loveing and dutifull son John Hazen of sd Lyme . . . . give . . . unto him" two pieces of land containing 25 1/2 acres in the East Parish of Lyme. This land with a dwelling house was conveyed by John Hazen, Jr., to Robert Miller, 3 Jan 1739/40, and on the same date he bought of Robert Miller another house and 25 acres for 400 pounds. This place he sold again, with 7 1/2 acres purchased of "his honored father," to David Huntley for 500 pounds, 14 Sept. 1742. No later Hazen deeds are recorded in Lyme, though from the record of births of the children, it is evident that the family was there at least twelve years later. He seems to have made a prospecting trip in New Jersey about 1745, but there is no evidence that he had any residence outside of Connecticut.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with John by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with John:
