About John Fowler

Not known if he was born in America or England. He was in the list of planters in Milford in 1639, but removed and settled in Guilford in 1649. He was a Deacon in the church, and a deputy to the General Court at New Haven in 1661, 1663 and 1664, and 27 times delegate to the General Court at Hartford after the union of the colonies. He was one of the first deacons in the church in Guilford, beginning about 1662/5. For his services, the Legislature granted him 100 acres of land in Cochin-chaug(Durham). In 1672, his list was L160, the largest in the town of Guilford. He died in 1676 leaving property to the amount of L 612. He was also listed as an Ensign in the Colonial Militia, from Guilford, Record C.2, p. 14 of the Colonial Records.
