    Notes:

    "John Porter and his Descendants": Among the early settlers of New England in the great tide of emigration from England subsequent to the granting of the charter for the colony of Massachusetts Bay, in 1628, came John Porter.
    The records in England give his descent, in the sixteenth generation from William de la Grande, a Norman Knight who came in the army of the Norman Duke, at the conquest A.D. 1066, and that he acquired lands at or near Kenilworth in Warwickshire..
    His son Ralph (or Roger) became "Grand Porteur" to henry First A.D, 1120 to 1140 from which he derived the name Porter......

    Notes:

    Name:
    He probably arrived in May, 1634, (Love's Colonial History of Hartford, p. 2), though he is generally said to have come from London in the ship "Planter", 1635 and registered at the Custom House as 16; but this evidently refers to someone else of the same name, for he was much older. He and his brother Timothy were made Freemen of Massachusetts, March 4, 1634/5. His wife was born in 1609 and he was Deputy to the General Court from Lynn, Sep. 2, 1635, when the removal to Connecticut was decided upon. Moreover, he came with his brothers, John and timothy who did not come in the "Planter." At Hartford he was Constable in the years 1644, 48 and 53. He joined the first party for the settlement of Hartford, known as the "Adventurers," who went the year before the main body of Mr. Hooker's congregation. He had been chosen Constable at Lynn and was fined 10 shillings at a Court held in Salem, for not being present June 27, 1636. He was an original proprietor at Hartford and his home lot in 1639 was on what is now Main Street just north of Little River, extending to the present Center Church. He removed to Hadley in 1659 and it has been said he was Townsman there but his name is not included in the list of Hadley's Selectmen.
