    Notes 
    • John was one of the original settlers of Guilford, his first home lot being a 1.5 acre parcel on the east side of Crooked Lane, the fourth lot north of Buck Lane. He took the oath of freeman in Guilford on February 14, 1649/1650, a little less than a year after his father did. He became the drummer of the train band, the colony's chief defense unit, and served as sexton for many years, "warning" residents to meetings and church services by beating his drum. His name appears in Guilford's town records, being sued in 1648 by a fellow planter who complained that John's hogs had rooted through his corn, and for reporting to train band practice while intoxicated on January 1, 1656/1657.
