    Notes 
    • John Remington was living in Newbury, Massachusetts in 1637.  He was a freeman in 1639; moved to Andover and thence to Rowley, Massachusetts.

      At the time of his wife's death in 1658, he was a Lieutenant in the Militia.  Afterwards, he removed to Roxbury where he died in June 1667.
      _____________________________

      John , while inheriting an annuity from his father and also from a brother, emigrated to America in 1637, with his wife and two of his children, John and Thomas, both born in Yorkshire.  His departure to America was probably on religious grounds.  Three thousand left for America from different parts of England that year.

      In 1638, The Rev. Ezekiel Rogers, rector of Rowley, within 20 miles of Garrowby, left for America with all the farmers of his parish, for religious freedom.  Rogers, who was M. A. Christ's College, Cambridge, was appointed rector of Rowley in 1620.  Like his father and brother, he attached himself to the Puritan Party, and was suspended for not conforming to the regulations as to public worship of King Charles I and Archbishop Laud.  On reaching America these colonists found John Remington and other Yorkshire people near Boston.  They joined forces and formed a new Settlement near Salem, MA, which they called Rowley, after the old home of so many of them.

      John appeared before the General Court in Boston, 22 March 1639, to take the oath of freeman.  It is impossible to learn the exact date of his arrival or the vessel in which they came, as all Nubery (Newbury) MA records were lost prior to 10 June 1637.

      In the new settlement called Rowley, they all laid labor together and obtained a town charter, 4 Sep 1639.  They laid out to each family a home lot.  Two lots were laid out to John on Weathersfield Street: One lot containing two acres.  In all, John Remington the First had about 114 acres laid out to him at various times.

      John removed to Roxbury and reconstructed its meeting house in 1658.  He became a proprietor there.
