Birth: 1640
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: May 15, 1706
Plymouth County
Massachusetts, USA

John Haskell was the first son of Roger Haskell, an emigrant from England, and Elizabeth Hardy whose father was in the fishing business, whom Roger worked for or with.

The Haskell family is documented in the book called:
- Haskell Family in North America - Descendants of William Haskell and Elinor Foule

Here's an excerpt from the Haskell family book:

An interesting item was that John was sued for Breach of Promise in an Ipswich, term of Court by John Proctor, in March of 1665 in behalf of his daughter Martha, which he won. It must not have deterred John though, because he married Patience Soule in January 1666.

John was one of the 26 Men's Purchase of Middleboro and may have been why he was designated Middleboro John. He not only was a farmer but also did work in wood. He traded 30 wooden oars to Erasmus/Eramus James for one black horse, to be delivered January 15, 1676 at Bass River Ferry (12 of them to be 26 feet long, 12 to be 24 feet long, and 6 to be 22 feet long).

Even though he lived in Middleboro there were a great many dealings in the public record, several Beverly business transactions where his father lived, and also with his Uncle William. The family may have thought John wasn't given a fair share in his father's Will, for they had him sue his mother and her husband (2) William Berry. A forty acre adjustment of land with Richard Dodge necessitated an original deed of his father.
