-- Harrington Genealogical Gazetteer, by George Harrington, CS71.H311 1939

When John Harrington arrived in Boston Harbor in about 1630, with his wife and two young sons, Abraham, then aged 10 years, and Benjamin, then aged about 12 years, there was another Harrington boy, Robert, still in England, and who came to America some four years later in 1634, on the ship "Elizabeth," when he was 18 years old, probably at the expiration of a contract of apprenticeship. He disembarked at the same harbor in Boston, and settled in Watertown, Mass., a neighboring town to Charleston, and we find his name there on a list of land proprietors as early as 1642, and where, in 1649, he married Susannah George. It is thought that this Robert Harrington, and a brother of Abraham of Charleston, Mass., and Benjamin of Providence, R.I.
