The son of WILLIAM & AGNES CURTIS of Nazing, England, he was baptized in Nazing on September 15, 1577. JOHN married Elizabeth Hutchins on April 19, 1610 in Nazing, England. I am descended from his son, JOHN CURTISS, Jr..

History of Ancient Woodbury, by William Cothren, Baltimore: Gen. Publishing Co., Inc., 1977, p.531

"William (John's brother) Curtiss embarked on the ship, Lion, June 22, 1632 and landed Dec. 16, 1632, at Scituate, Mass. He removed with his family to Roxbury, Mass., whence they removed to Stratford, Conn. By the records of Stratford it apears that the father of these must have died before the removal of the family thither.."

THIS IS ONLY A MEMORIAL THAT THE FAMILY PUT UP IN HONOR OF HIM. HE ACTUALLY DIED IN WETHERSFIELD.
