    Notes 
    • "The Descendants of John Drake": John Drake had a grant of land at Hop Meadow, Simsbury, in 1667. Just when John Drake, Jr., took up his residence upon it we do not know, but the Committee empowered to lay out the land in Massaco (Simsbury) voted in 1668 that if the "oweners" of lots were not resident upon them by September next, the lots would be forfeited. (Barber's History of Simsbury, p. 36). John Drake's barn was near the site of the present Congregational Church and his name was given to a small stream known as Drake's Brook and to a hill.
      John Drake was buried in the old burying ground at Simsbury; his tombstone is still standing. It give the year o death as 1688, a year earlier than the Town records. the probating of the estate in 1689 would agree with the Town records.
