John Kimball(2) (Richard(1)) was born in Rattlesden, county of Suffolk, England, in 1631, and came to America with his father. He settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts, and died there 6 May 1698. In a deposition made in 1666 he says he is 35 years old. In a deposition made in 1684, when he was 53 years old … By trade, John Kimball(2) was a wheelwright, but by occupation, he seems, like his brothers, to have been also an extensive farmer. He frequently bought and sold land, and there are a number of deeds on record in Salem bearing his name. … Most historians say this John married for his second wife Mary Jordan. This is an error [she married John Kimball(3) son of Henry Kimball(2) son of Richard Kimball(1)]. On 8 Mar. 1673, he united with the church by taking the covenant. His will is made 18 Mar. 1697-8. … His real estate had all been given away before this time, and his personal property which was estimated at £131.9s.11d. consisted mainly of "Quick Stock."
