About John Rose

Sailed to America on the "Francis" in 1635 at the age of 15, twin to Robert possibly, who was also listed as being 15. His birth date would therefore be circa 1619.

Son of Robert Rose and Margery Rose.

Married three times. His children were: John Rose, Mary, Hannah, Martha and ?.

"John, born circa 1619, married (1) unknown, (2) Ellen (Moulthrop) Luddington, (3) Phebe (Bracey) Dickinson. A Rose researcher states that Deacon John Rose was born circa 1619 in England. (43) He emigrated on November 12, 1634 to Massachusetts Bay Colony. He moved before 1647 to Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut. He owned 47 acres deeded to him by his father before 1647 in Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut. He appeared in court between 1649 and 1653/54. (45) He served as a juror five times during this period. Savage implies that this was in Bradford, but says he was living there after 1667. He appeared in court about 1665 in New Haven, New Haven, Connecticut. According to the genealogist Christine Rose, Robert Pinion testified that attempted access to the house of John Rose, when John and his wife were away at a meeting, and when the children refused to let him in, her entered by way of a window. He made the two younger daughters leave a room so he could be with the elder daughter. Curiously, Christine Rose mentions that among the charges against Robert Pinion were theft and breaking of the Sabbath, but she does not mention that he was charged regarding this incident."

"He moved before 1667 to Branford (East Haven), New Haven, Connecticut. It is not clear whether John lived in Branford or nearby New Haven, but he lived near the iron works, where he was Constable. He was admitted a planter in 1673. He became a member in 1667 in Branford, New Haven, Connecticut. He was Constable (appointed) between 1671 and 1672 in New Haven, New Haven, Connecticut. He was a chosen Constable of New Haven iron works in 1677 in New Haven. These iron works, on the river between East Haven and Branford, were the first in Connecticut when built in 1655. All of the employees lived in the New Haven area. The works operated for 25 years until about 1680, when its supply of iron ore (from North Haven) was exhausted. He admitted a freeman in 1678. He owned and deeded a number of lots to settle his affairs (he made out a will a year later) in 1682 in Branford. He signed a will on April 18, 1683 in Branford. He left his wife Phebe 40 pounds and very little else to his children. He died before May 10, 1683 in Branford. On this date, his will was proved. Children were: John Rose, Mary Rose, Hannah Rose, Martha Rose, Rose."
