    Notes 
    • John, age 25, came to New England on the ship Susan & Ellen from London in 1635. He and Margaret Dix, age 18, were listed as servants, perhaps of Percival and Margaret Greene, on the passenger list. They arrived at the port of Boston and passengers by this vessel settled almost exclusively in the Town of Watertown. The Traine family were early settlers in Watertown Farms, later Weston, Massachusetts.

      It is said that this John Traine was the ancestor of all persons bearing the name of Traine in the United States. The family tradition that John came to New England from the southwestern part of Scotland proves correct in that the Trains are a sept, or members of the Clan MacDonald inhabiting the region of Ayrshire bordering on the coast. The family of Tran are from the earliest times found in the town of Irvine, about 30 miles south of Glasgow.
