Joseph Loomis - son of John Loomis and Agnes Lingwood, was a woolen-draper. Several sources say he sailed from London, England 11 April 1638 on the Ship "Susan and Ellen", arriving in Boston Mass. 17 July 1638. Other sources claim he probably came to Windsor in the summer or autumn of 1639 in company with Rever and Ephraim Huet , who arrived at Windsor, Aug 17, 1639. Records indicate he stayed about a year in Dorchester, Mass. Town records of Windsor, Conn. show that on 2 Feb 1640, he was granted 21 acres from the Plantation adjoining Farmington River on the west side of the Conn. River. This acreage included the site of the first English settlement made in Conn. Also there were several large tracts of land on the east side of the Conn., partly from the town and partly purchsed. His house was near the mouth of the Farmington River on "The Island." That area was co called because when raining, the Connecticut River overflowed, causing it to temporarily become an island.

In 1614, Joseph married Mary White, daughter of Robert White and Bridgett Allgar- both of Shalford, Essex, England. Joseph and Mary had 8 children, all born in England, and came to America with them. Their 5 sons were freeman--believed to mean those who enjoy political liberty.

Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) and Mary White (1590-1652) were born and raised and married and had their children in England. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) was a woolen and linen draper in Braintree, Essex, England. He was a cloth merchant with a shop. He purchased cloth from many weavers who wove on hand-looms in their homes as well as from all over. He sold cloth all over as well. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) with his wife and 8 children and much baggage sailed from England on 11 April 1638 aboard the "Susan and Ellen" and arrived at Boston Harbor 17 July 1638 and then spent about a year at Dorchester, MA.

Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) was at Windsor, CT by 17 August 1639 with 5 sons (all of whom were on the 07 October 1669 Freeman list). In 1639 (before or after Joseph Loomis arrived?) the people of Windsor and Hartford and Wethersfield met in convention and agreed to govern themselves according to a written constitution and became a republic that was soon called Connecticut. This is believed to be the first republic in the history of the world created by a written constitution with no religious restrictions to be a democracy in which freedom and equality and individuality were potent factors. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) was granted 21 acres in Connecticut on the Windsor Plantation on 02 February 1640 at the mouth of the Farmington River near where it meets the Connecticut River. His home was known as "The Island" because when the Connecticut River flooded, the home became an island. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) is considered to be a founder of Windsor, CT and Windsor, CT believes itself to be the first English settlement in Connecticut. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) represented Windsor as Deputy to the General Court for 1643 and 1644. He was on the 04 October 1669 Freeman list. Many of his children's marriages and the births of his grandchildren are in the Connecticut Colony records. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) had no will. His estate inventory was taken on 25 November 1658 and an agreement about dividing the estate was signed by all 8 of the children on 02 December 1658.

Son Joseph Loomis (1615-1687) was born in England and immigrated to New England in 1638 with his parents and his siblings. On May 1643 he was granted 4 acres of Windsor Plantation land next to his father's land there. Joseph Loomis (1615-1687) married first at Windsor, CT in 1646 to Sarah Hill and they had 4 children there. Sarah Hill Loomis died in 1653. Joseph Loomis (1615-1687) was a Freeman by 1654. In 1659 at Windsor, CT he married second to Mary Sherwood (1642-1681) and they had 8 children there. Joseph Loomis (1615-1687) was a member of the Windsor troop of horse during King Philips War in 1675-1676.

Granddaughter Hannah Loomis (1663-1730), daughter of Joseph Loomis (1615-1687), married in 1690 at Windsor, CT to Abraham Colt and they settled at Glastonbury, CT and had 3 children there.

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

Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) and Mary White (1590-1652) were born and raised and married and had their children in England. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) was a woolen and linen draper in Braintree, Essex, England. He was a cloth merchant with a shop. He purchased cloth from many weavers who wove on hand-looms in their homes as well as from all over. He sold cloth all over as well. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) with his wife and 8 children and much baggage sailed from England on 11 April 1638 aboard the "Susan and Ellen" and arrived at Boston Harbor 17 July 1638 and then spent about a year at Dorchester, MA.

Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) was at Windsor, CT by 17 August 1639 with 5 sons (all of whom were on the 07 October 1669 Freeman list). In 1639 (before or after Joseph Loomis arrived?) the people of Windsor and Hartford and Wethersfield met in convention and agreed to govern themselves according to a written constitution and became a republic that was soon called Connecticut. This is believed to be the first republic in the history of the world created by a written constitution with no religious restrictions to be a democracy in which freedom and equality and individuality were potent factors. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) was granted 21 acres in Connecticut on the Windsor Plantation on 02 February 1640 at the mouth of the Farmington River near where it meets the Connecticut River. His home was known as "The Island" because when the Connecticut River flooded, the home became an island. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) is considered to be a founder of Windsor, CT and Windsor, CT believes itself to be the first English settlement in Connecticut. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) represented Windsor as Deputy to the General Court for 1643 and 1644. He was on the 04 October 1669 Freeman list. Many of his children's marriages and the births of his grandchildren are in the Connecticut Colony records. Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) had no will. His estate inventory was taken on 25 November 1658 and an agreement about dividing the estate was signed by all 8 of the children on 02 December 1658.

Son Joseph Loomis (1615-1687) was born in England and immigrated to New England in 1638 with his parents and his siblings. On May 1643 he was granted 4 acres of Windsor Plantation land next to his father's land there. Joseph Loomis (1615-1687) married first at Windsor, CT in 1646 to Sarah Hill and they had 4 children there. Sarah Hill Loomis died in 1653. Joseph Loomis (1615-1687) was a Freeman by 1654. In 1659 at Windsor, CT he married second to Mary Sherwood (1642-1681) and they had 8 children there. Joseph Loomis (1615-1687) was a member of the Windsor troop of horse during King Philips War in 1675-1676.

Granddaughter Hannah Loomis (1663-1730), daughter of Joseph Loomis (1615-1687), married in 1690 at Windsor, CT to Abraham Colt and they settled at Glastonbury, CT and had 3 children there.
