About John Pierce
This profile has no birth or death dates in its biographical summary so calculated dates of birth of 1610 and death of 1650 were added only to help him not get merged with others accidentally.
John Pierce was a landholder in 1639 "by courtesie of the town." His home-lot was on the east side of the road to the Cow Pasture, but it was given to Robert Wade, before February 1639-40. He evidently did not remain long in Hartford, but where he settled is unknown. It is thought that he may have served in the Pequot War, as he owned a lot in the Soldier's Field, which he sold to Richard Goodman. December 1642, "It was agreed by the town that William Clarke shall hafe John Pearce's allotment."
