    Notes:

    Excerpt from "Dawes-Gates Ancestral Lines":
    The parents of Joseph Loomis, of New England, were probably John and Agnes Loomis, of Braintree, co. Essex, England. If so, he was their only son and the executor of the father's will in May and June, 1619.......
    They remained in England until the spring of 1638 when, on april 11, with their eight children, they embarked at Maldon (the nearest seaport to Braintree) on the "Susan and Ellen" on which their goods also came and arrived in Boston on July 17, following. It is theorized that they spent their first year in this country at Dorchester though proof of that opinion has not yet been found, but in the summer and fall of 1639 the family removed overland to Windsor, Connecticut, probably in the company with the Reverend Ephraim Huet who arried there August 17, 1639.......
    Joseph served on a jury on March 2, 1642, and on another in company with NATHANIEL FOOTE in September 1644. On January 6, 1650, he was sued by William Buell for trespass and for damage to the extent of seven bushels of corn; one may infer that his stock got away from him...

    Name:
    "The Hull Family in America": Joseph Loomis, the father-in-law of Lieut. Josiah Hull, before coming to New England, was a woolen draper of Brintree essex County, England, and was married in said county, June 30, 1614, to Mary White, daughter of Robert White and his wife Bridget Alger. He came to America in the ship "Susan and Ellen", leaving England April 1, 1638.....

    He was a woolen draper in Braintree, co Essex, Engl., and came in the ship "Susan and ellen," leaving London, april 11, 1638 and arriving at Boston, July 17, 163, as is proved by the deposition of Joseph Hills of Charlestown. (N.E. Reg., 30, p. 459.) He brought with him his sons, Joseph, John, Thomas, Samuel and Nathaniel, and daughters, Mary, Elizabeth, and another who m. Nicholas Olmstead. He is supposed to have come to Windsor, Conn. in company with rev. Ephraim Huit, who arrived there Au. 17, 1639. Feb 2, 1640, he was granted twenty-one acres of land adjoining the Farmington river, and his house was on what was known as the "the Island" because at every freshet it became temporarily an island. Stiles says "This Ancestral Home" has been in perpetual possession of his descendants coming down in an unbroken regular succession to Epaphras Loomis,who sold it to Rev. George Loomis, who in turn sold it to John Mason Loomis. He served twice on the jury of the Particular Court, March 2, 1642/3 and September, 1644.

    Joseph married Mary WHITE 30 Jun 1614, Messing, Essex, England. Mary (daughter of Robert WHITE and Bridget ALLGAR) was born Bef 24 Aug 1590, England; was christened 24 Aug 1590; died 23 Aug 1652, Windsor, Hartford Co., Connecticut. [Group Sheet]

  5. 12.  John DRAKE died 17 Aug 1659.

    Notes:

    "The Descendants of John Drake of Windsor, Connecticut":

    The will of Francis Drake of Esher, County Surrey, England, dated 133, has this bequest: "And unto John Drake my Cozen William Drake's sonne twenty punde to be sent unto him into New England in Comodityes such as my Executor shall thinke fitt" (43 Seager). Mr. henry Waters in his notes upon this will expresses the belief that this refers to John Drake of Windsor, Conn. Vivian in his "Visitations of Devon" makes the same assertion. With two such eminent authorities to support us we may trace the roots of the Drake family tree on English sol back to John of Ashe or even farther if our interest and time permits.

    Just when John Drake arrived in New Englandm we do not know, but we find his name on a list of those to be made freemen Oct. 19, 1630 (Boston Record Commissioner's Report, Vol. 29, p. 133). For some reason his name does not appear upon any list made in Boston and of his activities during the next few years we know little. In 1637 John Drake's name appears among the forty-six purchasers of Taunton, but his sojourn there must have been very brief for in natthew Grant's Record of the Church at Windsor, Conn., we find this entry, "Womin admited here - "ould wido Drake. feb. 23. 1639." Just why John Drake's wife (if it was she) should have been called an "ould wido" twenty years before she really became one, is dificult to understand. It is somewhat at variance with the record of her death Oct. 7, 1681, "hir 100 yer of age have liued a wido 22 y()." This record also might tax one's credulity. We gain from Matthew Grant the fact that the Drakes were in Windsor early in the year 1639. John Drake was granted fourteen acres, an homelot with meadow adjoining fro the plantation at Windsor, Conn., Jan. 26, 1640.

    "Aug. 17, 1659. John Drake Senior dyed accidentaly, as he was Driving a Cart, Loaded with corn, to carry from his house to his son Jacob's the Cattle being 2 oxen and his mare, in the high way against John Griffin's Something Scar'd the Cattle, and they Set a runing, and he Labouring to Stop them, by takeing hold on the mare, was thrown down on his face, and the Cart Wheele went over him: brake one of his Legs and bruised his body, so that he was taken up Dead, being carried into his Daughters house had Life come again, but Dyed in a Short time and was buried on the 18th day of August '59."

  7. 14.  Deacon John MOORE was born , England (son of Thomas MOORE and ? UNKNOWN); died Between 14-16 Sep 1677, Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut, USA.

    Notes:

    Name:
    He came as a Deacon of the Dorchester church in 1630, (History of Dorchester, p. 68), probably in the "Mary and John." He with Thomas Moore, Rev. John Warham, Roger Williams, Ralph Mousall, and others were made Freemen of Massachusetts, May 18, 1631. He went with Warham to Windsor in 1635 or 6. He has been confused with what seems to have been another John Moore, whose name appears on the Dorchester Records in 1638; he was one of the chief men at Windsor; was on the jury of the Particular Court in October, 1642; Representative at the May session of 1661 and many times after; "Ordayned Deacon Janu 11, 1651," (O.C.R.) and was an excellent and esteemed citizen. At a session of the General Court, held March 13, 1661/2, he and "Scery Daniel Clark" were granted 400 acres to be divided between them. He dealt largely in real estate; farmed; manufactured pike heads and built a ferry about 1671; was a contributor to the Connecticut fund for the relief of the poor in other colonies.

    The will of Deacon John Moore shows that he left four daughters and a son John, but as Thomas and Elizabeth Moore are recorded on the Dorchester Records as "children" baptized apparently at the same tie and as Elizabeth is known to have been the daughter of Deacon John Moore, it seem as if Thomas must have been a son of his. (Records of First Ch., Dorchester, p. 149.) Stiles says the wife of John Moore was Abigail and that he married her June 16, 1639, but in the record of John Moore's family in the Old Windsor Church record, we find: Abigail Moore Feb. 14, 1639. then follows: Mindwell, dau. of John Moore, b. 10July 1643. The original looks as if Abigail was interlined after Mindwell had been written. The records says nothing about marriage or wife and the Abigail here recorded was evidently the first child. b. 14 Feb. 1639/40. She was the first child born in Windsor.
