"John Bennet was one of those killed at Deerfield, Massachusetts, in September, 1675. He was a son of Henry Bennet, and grand-son of John Perkins, the first permanent settler of that name in Ipswich, who was the ancestor of all of that surname now residing in Essex. Henry Bennet had a farm, of which the southern boundary was Castle Neck Creek, and a part of the dividing line between Essex and Ipswich. He [Henry] also owned land upon Hog Island, upon which his son Jacob lived, and which Jacob's widow and children sold to Captain Thomas Choate."
