About John Page, I

Born in Dedham, Essex, England and came to New England in 1630 as part of the Winthrop Fleet. He died in Watertown Massachusetts, where he had been the first constable of that town.

From Holton:

John Page of Watertown, Mass. acc. to Savage, came in the fleet with Winthrop in 1630, bringing with him son John and another child. He was from Dedham, Co. Essex, England. He was made constable 19 Oct. 1630; admitted freeman 18 May, 1631. His wife was Phebe Payne, sister of William of Ipswich, who came in the Increase from London, 1635, aged 37, with wife Ann, 40, and several children. He removed to Boston, had large estate, and "used it in a public spirit"; died 10 Oct. 1660. His will made 9 Oct. 1670, makes very liberal bequests to his wife, children, grandchildren and to his sister Phebe, "to my sister Page £3 per annum, to her five children, John, Samuel, Elizabeth, Mary and Phebe, £5 each."



John PAGE[1] who came with the Winthrop Fleet in 1630 is believed to be the earliest Page immigrant in the Massachusetts Bay Colony; and the earliest Page arrival to have survived in America. He was from the vicinity of Dedham, county Essex, and one of the first settlers of Watertown, Massachusetts, where he was a well-to-do yeoman. He was constable of that town in 1630, and he was made a Freeman on 18 May 1631. In 1662, he was one of the group of Watertown men who settled the town of Groton, Massachusetts, where he was one of the early Selectman. After the burning of Groton in Philip's war in 1675, he returned to Watertown, where he died on 18 December 1676, "aged about 90 years".

He married in Lavenbam, county Suffolk, 5 June 1621, Phoebe (baptized 1 April 1594), the daughter of William Paine of the town and sister of William Paine of Ipswich and Boston, a prominent New England merchant.
