About John North, Sr

John North (1612 - 1692) was the fifth and final child of Dudley North and Frances Brockett. Born in Kirtling, Cambridgeshire, England, he was christened on 27 February 1612 in Harrow-on-Hill, London, Middlesex county, England. He sailed for New England on the Suzan and Ellen when he was just 20 years old, settling in Ipswich, Massachusetts. He married Hannah Bird (1633 - 1662), daughter of Thomas Bird, in 1640 and moved to Hartford (Farmington) by 1652.

John North was called "The Cromwellian" because he went to Ireland about 1650 to take part in the Cromwellian wars. Lands in West Meath and County of Kings, Ireland. His descendants claim an acknowledged kinship with the ancestors of the Guilford Norths, and the right to carry the coat of arms of the North family in America.

Marriages and Children

    2. Mary Bird (1620 - 1679), sister of Hannah

Discussion

The Norths of Ireland are descended from the Norths of Guilford, Surrey, England. This is the family of the Barons North, but the precise relationship is unclear.
