Birth: 1600, England
Death: unknown, England

Born by about 1600 based on estimated year of birth of presumed elder son. Planter & yeoman who came to Massachusetts Bay in 1633. First settled in Dorchester; later moved to Windsor, & then back to Dorchester. Returned to England permanently after 1641. Died in England after 1641.
Married by 1624 _____ _____; not seen in any record in New England.
John Insley Coddington has raised the possibility that John Eells came from the vicinity of Chichester, Sussex. A more likely possibility, based on his residence in Dorchester and Windsor, and his transactions with Thomas Allen in 1641 just before his return to England, is that he was from Barnstable, Devonshire, or somewhere in that area. In this connection, this John Eells may be the same as the "John Iles of Dorchester in New England" who in January 1638/9 gave to Thomas Marshfield of Windsor 28 which the latter was to pay to Adam Hurden of Barnstable, Devonshire, to whom Iles owed the sum; Henry Woolcot and William Gaylord were sureties for Marshfield in this matter on 29 July 1639.
