    Notes:

    Name:
    "Connecticut Ancestry": John Waterbury was born say about 1614, based upon the marriage of his daughter Rachel in 1659. However, he may also have been the son of William Waterbury of Sudbury baptized 30 December 1621. He died intestate at Stamford, Connecticut 31 July 1658.

    John Waterbury sold his house and 8 acres of land at Watertown, Massachusetts to Robert Pearce/Pierce on 15 October 1646, and presumably moved about that time to Stamford, where he was first of record in 1650.

    His wife's name was Rose ?, since it was Rose Waterbury who married Joseph Garnsey at Stamford on 11 My 1659. Many early writers have claimed that she was named Rose Lockwood, and this marriage is often found in the secondary literature. Prindle (Gillespie Ancestry) showed, however, that she could not possibly have been a Lockwood, and that she was instead probably named Rose Taylor, that is, a putative daughter of Gregory Taylor of Watertown and Stamford. He was unable to prove this Taylor connection to his own satisfaction, however, and continued to place a question mark before her surname.....

    The connection with the Taylor family, however, is a sure link to this Stamford family's connection with the Massachusetts Bay. Gregory Taylor of Watertown, another passenger of the Winthrop fleet, member of the original Boston Church, and resident of Watertown, also moved from Watertown to Stamford where he died on 24 September 1657. John Waterbury had a claim on the estate of Gregory Taylor at Stamford, as already noted, and our interpretation of this claim is that John Waterbury's mother had become Taylor's wife....

    John Waterbury served as Deputy from Stamford to the General Court of the New Haven Colony in 1657 and 1658 (the year of his death). Prindle assigned an age at death of only "37 or 38 years" in 1658, but when Anderson's estimate of his birth year is used (1614) then his age at death is a bit more reasonable (44 years). this may be an additional reason for following Anderson's caution about the identity of the William and John Waterburys of Sudbury.

    John Waterbury's widow Rose married Joseph Garnsey/Guernsey at Stamford on 11 May 1659, and had a son, Joseph Garnsey Jr., bon 30 june 1662. Waterbury's estate was not settled by the Probate Court until 1669, at which time Joseph Garnsey was appointed administrator, and Mr. Holly and Lieutenant Bell were appointed overseers of the children "and their disposals and portions." On 14 July 1666 and 19 day 12th month (February) 1668 respectively, Zachariah Dibble for his wife Sarah and John Holmes for his wife Rachel, gave receipts to Joseph Garnsey for their shares in the estate of their wives' deceased father, John Waterbury. On 3 July 1674, John, Jonathan and David Waterbury assigned to their father in law Joseph Garnsey their rights to land in Rocky Neck "which our own father Jno. Waterbury deceased bought of Mr. Law of Stamford & is now in ye possession of Jno. Miller of Stamford..." Then, on 12 February 1684/85, Jonathan and David Waterbury discharged their father in law Joseph Garnsey "forever conserning our portions" of their father's estate, having received their portions in full.

    John married Rose TAYLOR 1638, Watertown, Massachusetts. Rose (daughter of Gregory TAYLOR and Achsah ?) was born 1621, England; died Between 12 Feb 1683 and 1684, Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA. [Group Sheet]
