About Jane (Joan) Masters (Cox)

Jane Master's husband, John Masters, and his young family arrived in the American Colonies

as a party in the Winthrop fleet, the "Great Immigration".

They likely arrived aboard the flagship "Arbella" on 6-22-1630.

John and his family accompanied Sir Richard Sulton-Stall, when

they paddled up the Charles River to a green place whose Indian

name sounded to some like (Pigs-go-suck).

Here they found the settlement of Watertown, Massachusetts.

In 1631, when Sir Richard was forced to return to England due

to the illlness of his two daughters, John Masters was placed

in charge of all Sir Richard's interest in Watertown.
