At the time they sailed from Hull England to Newbury MA (1637), John and Elizabeth had two sons, John and Thomas, both born in Yorkshire.

The reason they immigrated was probably religious. Not long after they arrived, they joined with a group led by Rev. Ezekial Rogers, a Puritan minister who was suspended for not conforming to the regulations as to public worship of King Charles I and Archbishop Laud.

John was a Lieutenant of the Rowley Company during the Pequor War, May 26, 1647. He was a carpenter, and a school teacher. His father left him 300 pounds and an annuity of 30 pounds per year. His brother Timothy left him a ten pound per year annuity.

After his wife Elizabeth died, John moved to Roxbury where he married Rhoda Gardner Gore (1607-1698), the widow of John Gore. After John died, Rhoda married for the third time (13 June 1674) Edward Proter (1610-1677).

The first Remington immigrant in the Northeast was John Remington, who came to Massachusetts Bay Colony from England about 1637. Most -- though not all -- Remingtons in America are descendants of this first John Remington. His sons settled in MA, RI, & CT. The famous artist Frederic Remington, as well as Eliphalet Remington, founder of the Remington Arms Co., were both descendants of the CT branch of these Remingtons. This is well documented. Many families in these later generations migrated westward just before and just after the Revolutionary War, and then increasingly during the 1800s. So, many Remingtons throughout the country can trace their ancestry back to these first New England Remingtons.

John, his wife Elizabeth and sons John and Thomas sailed from Hull, England to Newbury, Massachusetts in 1637. They joined a group of Puritans led by Rev. Ezekial Rogers. John served as a First Lieutenant in the the First Military Company of Rosley, Massachusetts, under Captain Sebastian Brigham in the Pequot War. Descendants include: Bess Truman, artist Frederic Femington, R. Buckminister Fuller and publisher Henry Roinson Luce. Marilyn Monroe is presumed to be a descendant.
