JOHN HOSKINS (also spelled Horskins or Hoskeins) probably came to Dorchester in the Colony of Massachusetts in 1630 on the Mary & John with his wife, Anne, and their children. They may have originally lived in Beaminster, Dorset, England.
On Oct. 18, 1630, he requested to become a freeman and took the Oath of Fidelity on May 18;, 1631. DAVID WILTON and John Hoskins were appointed fence viewers in 1633 in Dorchester. He sold four acres of land in the neck at Dorchester circa 1635 before the family removed to Windsor in the Colony of Connecticut.
In 1640, the Windsor plantation granted John Hoskins the father and Thomas Hoskins the son a homelot with a dwelling house on eighteen acres to be divided between them.
In John Hoskins' will dated May, 1648, he left 3 pounds to the church to be distributed by the deacons to the poor. The remainder was to go to this wife and his son, Thomas. His inventory totalled 338 pounds, 6 shillings, and 8 pence.
My ancestor, KATHERINE HOSKINS, was probably the daughter of JOHN & ANNE HOSKINS, although some question whether she was Anne's daughter only.
