At the time they sailed from Hull England to Newbury MA (1637), John and Elizabeth had two sons, John and Thomas, both born in Yorkshire.

The reason they immigrated was probably religious. Not long after they arrived, they joined with a group led by Rev. Ezekial Rogers, a Puritan minister who was suspended for not conforming to the regulations as to public worship of King Charles I and Archbishop Laud.

John was a Lieutenant of the Rowley Company during the Pequor War, May 26, 1647. He was a carpenter, and a school teacher. His father left him 300 pounds and an annuity of 30 pounds per year. His brother Timothy left him a ten pound per year annuity.

After his wife Elizabeth died, John moved to Roxbury where he married Rhoda Gardner Gore (1607-1698), the widow of John Gore. After John died, Rhoda married for the third time (13 June 1674) Edward Proter (1610-1677).

1. John Remington
b:1 Abt 1629, Yorkshire

The tendency to give a new baby the same name as one that has died leads to a real confusion when trying to sort out how many individuals of a given name actually existed. Two birth dates and a single adult death date seems a good likelihood to mean that the death of the first child was not recorded.
