John was an haberdasher in London. From the court documents regarding the will of Mr. John Maplett:

The nuncupative Will of Mr. John Maplett of the parish of St. Lawrence in the old Jury [London], 11 January 1629 [1629-1630]. Memorandum that on the 11th day of January, 1629, about 7 o'clock in the morning, Mr. John Maplett of the parish of St. Lawrence in the old Jury sent for Mr. William King of the same parish to come and speak with him, he being sick in body but sound in memory, and he told Mr. King that he prepared himself for another world, but that his desire was to make known that he appointed his wife, Mary Maplett his sole executrix, & did give her his whole estate to dispose of th his children as she thought fitting, and did also bequeath to his daughter Mary Gorton forty shillings: Mr King urged him to give a better legacy to his said daughter but he answered again that he had ginven her a great portion in marriage, & that he knew not how his estate would fall out. Therefore he concluded this to be his last will & testament. [Witnesses:] John Maplett, William Kinges, Elizabeth ffreeman, William ffreeman, John Maplett, Susanna Kinge. Proved 15 January 1629/30 by Marie Maplett, relict and sole executrix nominated in said will, William Kinge and Susanna King bearing witness that this was the last will and testament made by said deceased.

In the records at Haberdashers' Hall in London the following entry has been found:

John Maplett, free by George Brough, 4th April 1600." This shows that John Maplett, the father-in-law of Samuel Gorton, was admitted to the freedom of the Company of Haberdashers, after he had served his time as an apprentice to George Brough. A careful search has been made for the entry of the apprenticeship, but it has not been found." 29 Hillside Avenue, Malden, Mass George Walter Chamberlin
