      John Reynolds
      Born perhaps (about) 1612 at Boxford, Essex County, England (or 1590 in Sussex County, England). Died 1657 in America. Thought to have emigrated from (perhaps) London (or Ipswich), England to America earlier than 1634 (perhaps 1630), settling 1st at Watertown, Massachusetts before 6 May 1635, when he was granted Freeman status by the Massachusetts Bay Colony General Court. Might be the son, nephew, or brother of Robert Reynolds (1580? ? 1659), who was in Boston, Massachusetts in 1632.
      Puritan residents of Watertown, including John and Robert Reynolds, Massachusetts were among the first English settlers of Wethersfield (then called Pyquag), Connecticut. John Reynolds moved from there to Stamford, Connecticut in 1641, near the Greenwich, Connecticut boundary line.
      Wife: Sarah Chesterfield
      Children:
      Elizabeth Reynolds
      Jonathan/Johnathan Reynolds
      John Reynolds, Jr.

      After the death of Elizabeth, Peter Ferris married (2nd) widow Ruth Weed on 25 July 1705. Peter Ferris married (3rd), as her 2nd husband, Judith (Feake) Palmer, widow of William Palmer and mother of Judith Palmer, who married John Reynolds, generation 8, below.
