Said to have settled in Dorchester 1630, removed to Windsor 1635. He is on the list of founders of Windsor (arriving by 1640) and his marriage was recorded there in 1640, but he does not appear in the Great Migration volumes through 1635, indicating there is no evidence of his presence in New England before that time.

Founders of Windsor, CT
Windsor was the first permanent English settlement in Connecticut. Local indians granted Plymouth settlers land at the confluence of the Farmington River and the west side of the Connecticut River, and Plymouth settlers (including Jonathan Brewster, son of William) built a trading post in 1633. But the bulk of the settlement came in 1635, when 60 or more people led by Reverend Warham arrived, having trekked overland from Dorchester, Massachusetts. Most had arrived in the New World five years earlier on the ship "Mary and John" from Plymouth, England. The settlement was first called Dorchester, and was renamed Windsor in 1637.
