    Notes 
    • John Turner was one of the workmen employed at the ironworks that started operations in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1643. The Saugus Ironworks Restoration is a reconstruction of this first American ironworks at the original site. The village near the blast furnace and forge where the workmen lived was called Hammersmith after the place in England, not far from London, from which many of the workmen came. It is quite possible that John Turner was among the group that came from there. Several references to this John Turner are found in the records of Essex Co. The earliest, at a court held at Salem 28 Oct 1647, refers to him as "John Turner, living at the ironworks in Lin." Other records and court actions involving John Turner, his son Lawrence, the latter's wife Sarah, and others living at Hammersmith make it appear that the ironworkers were a rough-and ready lot, prone to frequent brawls and drinking. No record has been found of John Turner's wife. Presumably she died in England, and he came to this country with his two grown sons, John, Jr., and Lawrence, whose names occur in the court records. There is no reference to John Turner, Sr., and none to either of his sons in Lynn after 1654.
