Notes:

"In the month of March 1636 James and his two younger brothers, John and Miles, sailed from Bristol and arrived at Boston, Mass. in Apr 1637. James settled in Roxbury, MA where he married Margery. James was made a freeman in 1643 and was a freeholder there as late as 1650, the same year that he moved to Pequot (now New London, Conn.) and he had a house lot assigned him there. He was one of the "townsmen " or selectmen of New London for several years, and was one of the first "Deputies" sent from New London Plantations to the General Court at Hartford in 1657. (at which date he deposed his age to be about 50 years)
On 25 Dec 1656 they sold their homestead and soon moved across the river to what is now Groton, Conn. The spot where he first built his house in Groton in 1657 is about 3 miles from Groton Ferry, on the road to Poquonoc Bridge."
