______________________________________
John was made a freeman in 1682 and was largely employed in public offices: Colonel in the militia of an Ipswich Regiment and a merchant; town clerk in 1687; Deputy to the General Court with the title Lieutenant-Colonel; Counselor under the Charter of William and Mary in 1697; Judge of Probate of Essex County from 1702 to 1739; Justice of the General Sessions and Court of Common Pleas during all of which no appeal of his decision was ever made. He was strictly just, righteous, faithful, obliging, kind and condescending in all his relations and offices, whether as a counselor, judge (there was never an appeal of his judgment), husband, father, master, Christian, friend, or neighbor. He extended his respects to all his Lord's commandments. (bio by Tom Ayres)
