The son of my ancestors, HENRY & "GOODIE" GREGORY, the name of his wife was "Sarah". John probably came with his parents to New England in the early 1630's. He is in the records of New Haven, New Haven Colony by 1639, and was assigned the 8th seat in the middle section of the meeting house on March 10, 1646 in New Haven. In 1644, he was admitted to the New Haven Court. His sons, Joseph & Thomas were baptized in New Haven in 1646 and 1648, resp. He was a shoemaker, as was his father, and testified on behalf of his father in 1647.
About 1653 to 1655, his family removed to Norwalk. He was a representative for Norwalk to the General Court in Hartford for several years. "John Griggorie, Sr and John Griggorie, Junr." were on the list of Freemen of Norwalk.
His will was written August 15, 1689 and witnessed by Thomas Benedict, naming his wife, Sarah and sons-in-law, John & James Benedict (Thomas' sons).
