  • Name John COWLES  [1, 2
    • John Cowles went with his father to Hadley, Mass., and settled in that part afterwards called Hatfield. He may have accompanied his father in 1660, but whether he remained there or returned to Conn., and went back again with the family in 1664 is not known. He was selectman in 1682, 1683 and 1689; Constable March 1690; freeman May 30, 1690. In 1698 he signed his name to an agreement as John Cols, but it appears as Cowles in the record of his marriage and the settlement of his estate. His estate, inventoried at L591-2-0, was settled Dec. 11, 1711, at Northampton, Mass. He was a large landholder. [1]
