Birth: 1583
Old Windsor, England
Death: 1649
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA

The exact date of the birth of JOHN BIRDSEYE is not known, but he was probably born in Reading, Berkshire, England and probably immigrated to New England in the early 1600's settling in Wethersfield & then Glastonbury in the Colony of Conn. Rev. Samuel Peters in his book, "History of Hugh Peters, A.M.", 1807, states that he was a Puritan who immigrated to New Haven, Conn with two sons, but I believe that he is talking about this John's son John who settled in Stratford.

Glastonbury, Conn. records state that he died in 1649. His wife, known as "Alice" died in Stratford in 1697.

I am descended from two of their children: DEACON JOHN BIRDSEYE & MARGARET (BIRDSEYE) WILCOXSON.
