Research Notes

Disproven Death Date

This profile was originally uploaded with a death date of 10 October 1659. However, since three of his children were born after this date, it has been removed. The Visitation source also notes that he was executor and heir to his uncle in July 1660 which means he was still alive after 1659. The 1659 death date is found on many other trees online but should not be re-added to this profile without a legitimate source.

The Visitation source notes that his wife also married a 'John Revett'. Finding a record of this marriage may give an idea of when John may have actually died.


Jeremy's wife was transcribed as Dorcas Caton in the England Marriages source (given here) and 'Catton' in Boyd's Marriage Index. Peyton was used in the Visitations source and in some of their children's baptism records
