For more information on John King see "Descendants of John King" at Information is unsourced and therefore somewhat suspect.

    "John King, 'The Puritan' father of Sarah, came from England about 1645, at the age of sixteen years; m. Nov. 18, 1658, Sarah Holton; they had twelve children."

    "John King, a tanner, came from England in 1645, aged 16, and went to Northampton in 1655 among its first settlers. He came from Northampton, Eng., and at his suggestion or in honor of him it is supposed that the new town then formed in Western Massachusetts received the same name."

    "John (King), Northampton, is by Hinman said to have come at the age of 16 in 1645, liv. at Hartford, and 5 yrs. aft. m. Sarah Holton, d. of John; but part of this is erron. for he m. 18 Nov. 1656, Sarah, d. of William Holton, wh. of course, was sis. not d. of John; had John, b. July 1657; William, 28 Mar. 1660; Thomas, 14 July 1662 ; Samuel, 6 Jan. 1665; Eleazer, 26 Mar. 1667, wh. d. at 32 yrs. unm.; Joseph, 23 Mar. 1669, a. next yr.; Sarah, 3 May 1671; Joseph, again, 8 May 1673; Benjamin, 1 Mar. 1675; Thankful, Sept. 1679; David, 1677, or 1681; and Jonathan, 25 Apr. 1683; and his w. d. 8 May foll.; was rep. 1679 and 89; m. sec. w. Sarah, wid. of Jacob Mygatt, d. of William Whiting, was a capt. and d. 3 Dec. 1703. Sarah m. 22 Dec. 1692, Ebenezer Pomeroy; and Thankful m. 1704, Samuel Clapp."

  4. John King, in Find A Grave.

    No image provided; no actual evidence of burial presented.

    "John was a son of John King of Boyle, Ireland, who was secretary for Ireland under the reign of Queen Elizabeth. He was a grandson of Reverend and Bishop Edward King, first archbishop of Ireland after the Reformation.

    John King, Jr. came from Northampton, England to New England. He was living in Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts by 1645. [Northampton was not settled until 1653/54.] He removed to Hartford, Connecticut, then back to Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts in 1655. He married Sarah Horton in Northampton on November 18, 1656. He was an officer in the Northampton forces, and deputy to the General Court."

  5. The proposed Irish origin seems unlikely for a man who apparently became a tanner in Northampton.
