Misc. Notes
Pg 314 1st Gen, 2800 Farmington, CT John Roote71209 - Note made by Mr. Jesse Root, deceased, who was a school teacher in Berlin, CT, where his ancestors had lived from generation to generation, and not many miles distant from the old homestead in Farmington, CT, and who, being an invalid for many years, spent some leisure time in investigating the family history, reveals the English origin of the family, and has been confirmed by investigations abroad. He writes: “John Root, our Puritan ancestor, emigrated from a place in England called Badby. His father was deceased, and he lived with an uncle, a brother of his father, and was adopted. His uncle was a man of wealth, advanced in years, and a zealous opponent of popery, and it is my impression one of the nobility. He insisted that John, our ancestor, should go into the Parliamentary army under Cromwell, to fight against Charles I, and the Catholics. He had an aversion to war, and chose rather to join a company of Puritans who were coming to this country. When he arrived he came to Farmington, and was one of its first settlers, in 1640. He married Mary Kilbourn about that date.”
