Parents unknown. Nott John Eddy of Martha's Vineyard, the son of Samuel Eddy.

--------------------

There has been some dispute about which of the John Eddys in Massachusetts was the John Eddy born 25 December 1637 at Plymouth to Samuel Eddy. According to The Eddy Family Association (1980), it was John Eddy of Tisbury, not John Eddy of Taunton.

This John Eddy came to Martha's Vineyard in 1660 and settled at Tisbury, where his wife's family lived. He seems to have been connected to the Daggett family, even before his marriage to Hepzibah Daggett, as his uncle John Eddy had married in England to Amey Doggett, of the same family.
