From Joseph Loomis by Elisha S. Loomis:

"Joseph was a woolen-draper in Braintree, Essex county, England; sailed from London April 11, 1638, in the ship Susan and Ellen, and arrived at Boston July 17, 1638, tarrying about 1 year at Dorchester, Mass., it is thought. It is mentioned in the town records of Windsor, Vol. I, that on the 2nd of Feb., 1640, he had granted him from the plantation 21 acres adjoining Farmington river, on the west side of the Connecticut river, this 21 acres including the site of the first English settlement made in Conn; also several large tracts of land on the east side of the Connecticut, partly from the town and partly by purchase.

"He therefore probably came to Windsor in the summer or autumn of 1639, and he is generally supposed to have come in company with Rev. Ephraim Huet, who arrived at Windsor, Aug. 17, 1639. He brought with him five sons, all of whom were freemen, Oct. 7, 1669, and three daughters. His house was situated near the mouth of the Farmington River on "The Island," so called because at every great freshet it became temporarily an island by the overflowing of the Connecticut River."
