    Notes:

    Name:
    The "Descendants of Nicholas Knapp" from The USGenWeb Project- Fairfield County, Ct, states the following: Hannah, in many circles is claimed to have married Zerubabel Hoyt, son of Walter & Rhoda (Tinker)(Hobbs)(Taylor) Hoyt. The only record for such marriage is found in the Nicholas Knapp Genealogy (1953),: 1. Beyond that there is no foundation for the claim. The Hoyt Genealogy reflects Zerubabel with an "Unknown" first wife, whose identification remains unknown. Edwin Hall in his extracts of the Norwalk Records (1847), reflects nothing relative to the first marriage of Zerubabel Hoyt and the Stamford Records that are extant do not present any future for her. Thus claims to a marriage and/or death as found in many early day publications must be considered in error.

    Based on the findings found in 1995 research (The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1620-1633,: 1137), no further record is known to exist as pertains to Hannah Knapp's future. She is last identified in the 15 Apr 1670 Will of her father, Nicholas and then a single woman. To indicate anything otherwise as pertains to her or her future would be nothing more than pure speculation

    Name:
    JOHN BOUTON, son as is supposed, of the Count Nichols Bouton, was a Huguenot and during the existence of the great persecution fled to England, where the Government were offering to send emigrants to America, on condition they would swear allegiance to the Crown of England. A registry of such emigrants was kept at London, a copy of which has been examined by the compiler of this work, and as only one person by the Bouton name is found on that registry, embracing a period of 100 years, from 1600 to 1700, it is supposed that said person was the John bouton of whom this account is traced, and that all the families of Boutons or Boughtons in this country prior to 1700, were descended from said John Bouton, who embarked from Gravesend, England, in the barque ASSURANCE, July, 1635, and landed at Boston, Massachusetts, in December, 1635, aged 20 years; whether married or not at the time is not known.

    He married 1st, Joan Turney, and lived in Boston and Watertown, Mass., and early in the settlement of Hartford, Conn., moved to that place, and again in 1651, soon after the commencement of the settlement of Norwalk, he removed to that place, where his wife Joan soon died, and where he became an influential citizen, and in 1671, and for several years subsequent, he was a representative in the general court of the colony of Connecticut, and served his townsmen in many official capacities in Norwalk. He m. 2nd at Norwalk Ct., Jan. 1, 1656, Abigail Marvin, (dau. of Matthew Marvin, who came from London, Eng.) She was born at Hartford about 1640 and died at Norwalk, about 1672. He married 3d, at Norwalk about 1673, Mrs. Mary Stevenson, widow of Jonathan Stevenson, who was killed in a swamp fight with the Indians near Norwalk.

    He gave land to his sons John and Matthew, as appears on the Norwalk town records, and at his death, which occurred at Danbury, Ct., 174-5, he left in estate at Norwalk, a part of which has remained in possession of his descendants until the present time, July,1888, now over 200 years.
