From S.R. Durand:
"John Harriman was a resident of New Haven, Connecticut, in 1646. He was the "innholder", that is, he kept an inn. His wife's name was Elizabeth, and they had children named John, Jr., baptized January 24, 1647 and a graduate of Harvard College in 1667; our ancestress, Elizabeth; Richard, Samuel, and Mary, all of whom were mentioned in his will. In this will of 1681, he calls himself 'stricken in years.'
The Harriman Inn was in a house built on land in New Haven originally allotted to William Hawkins of London. However, he did not emigrate, and the lot was bought by Deputy Governor Goodyear. He built the house, which became known as the 'mansion house.' After Goodyear's death, John Harriman purchased the house and converted it into an inn. When he died in 1683, one of his sons operated the inn until 1690. In that year Captain John Miles, our ancestor, took over and operated it."
