According to Mr. Jesse Root, as quoted in J. P. Root's "Root Genealogical Records," John was a Puritan who lived with a paternal uncle after his father's death. This uncle later adopted John. The uncle was a wealthy man, possibly of noble birth, advanced in years, and a zealous opponent of popery [the Catholic church]. He insisted that John go into the Parliamentary army under Cromwell, to fight against Charles I and the Catholics. John had an aversion to war, and chose instead to join a company of Puritans who were going to America. He was one of the first settlers of Farmington, CT, in 1640. He and his wife were members of the Farmington Congregational church. At his death, he left what was considered then a good estate valued at £819. -------------------- From: Genealogical and Family History of Modern NY by Wm. Richard Cutter
