   [Carelton-Stickney.FTW]
   John Kimball was born in Rattlesden, county of Suffolk, England, in
   1621, and came to America with his father. He settled in Ipswich,
   Massachusetts, and died there 6 May 1698. In a deposition made in
   1666 he says he is 35 years old. In a deposition made in 1684, when
   he was 53 years old, he and his nephew, Philip Fowler, testify "that
   Mary wife of Thomas patch, Abigail Bosworth, (probably wife of
   Haniniel Bosworth, who Richard, Sr., calls cousin in his will), and
   Elizabeth Spofford were daughters of Thomas Scott Sr." In 1656 he
   was appointed attorney for Thomas Scott of Stamford, Connecticut,
   son of Thomas Scott, Sr., late of Ipswich, and brother-in-law of his
   father, Richard Kimball, Sr. Thomas Scott's will was approved 8
   March 1653-4, and mentions children Thomas, Elizabeth, Abigail,
   Hannah, Sarah, Mary, and brother Richard Kimball. Thomas Scott, Jr.,
   was in the Indian War, under Capt. Lathrop, when he was killed at
   Squakeheage (Northfield, Massachusetts) 8 Sept. 1675.
   By trade John Kimball was a wheelwright, but by occupation he seems,
   like his brothers, to have been also an extensive farmer. He
   frequently bought and sold land, and there are a number of deeds on
   record at Salem bearing his name. 16 October 1665, he was appointed
   one of the executors of the will of Bridget Bradstreet. In her will
   she mentions her oldest daughter, Martha Kimball. (This is
   evidently a clerical error, as Martha was the wife of William Beal.)
   She gives to her "the gound she now hath now in her possession, and
   my greine hood, a peuter dish, and Mr. Morton's Bocke and on sheet
   and on peliber (Pillowbear). To my daughter Mary Kemball my ould
   bible, my cloth waskate, my stamell peticote, on boulster and on
   palow, on peuter dish and on candlestick."
   John Kimball married Mary Bradstreet about 1655. He came over in the
   same ship with her and her father and mother. She was born in
   England in 1633. Most historians say that John married for his
   second wife Mary Jordan. This is an error. On 8 March 1673, he
   united with the church by taking the covenant. His will was made 18
   March 1697-8. In it he mentions his sons Richard, John, and Mosis,
   to whom he gives "sixe shillings a peece in money, which is all I
   intend to for them having by deed of gift giuene before what I them
   intended out of my estat." He mentions his "sixe dafters Mary
   Sarah, hannah, Rebekah, Elizabeth, and Abigail. His sunes Beniamin
   and Joseph kimbal have all the personal property divided between
   them, except one steer" that he gives "to my sun beniamin, and my
   best cubbard I giue toe my sun beniamin's wife: in consideration of
   what they haue dune or may doe for me in my eage and weakues." His
   real estate had all been given away before this time, and his
   personal property which was estimated at £131.9s. 11d. consisted
   mainly of "Quick Stock" as follows Six Oxen £24. Eight cows £26. 13.
   young cattle £18.10s. 29 shepp £6. 12 swine £5.

John and Mary came over together from England on the ship Elizabeth when they were both babies. Their families were closely associated in Ipswich.

John's children were all born in Ipswich.
