John was a soldier in the bloody Pequot battle of 1637. He is not named among the proprietors of Hartford in the land division of 1639; but is mentioned in the same year in the list of settlers, who, by the "towne's courtesie" had liberty "to getch woode and keepe swine or cowes on the common." His house lot was in the "soldiers field," so called, in the north part of the old village of Hartford, on the " Neck Road" (supposed to have been given for service in the Pequot war,) where he lived in 1640. Nov. 9th 164
