1998)Made free in Westerly, Washington Co., RI - 28 October 1638
His father, John Maxson, Senior, was the first settler of Throgs Neck,
then called "Maxson's Point," on the north shore of Long Island Sound, in
the present town and county of Westchester, New York, where he and his
son Richard were murdered in the early spring of 1638, by the Indians.
Mrs. Maxson and a few others escaped to a shallop lying in the sound, and
after a long and tedious voyage, landed on the Island of Rhode Island,
where a son was born to Mrs. Maxson a few days after landing, and
probably about the middle of March, 1638, who received the name of John
Maxson, after his recently murdered father. On the 24th of the same month
the Island was purchased from the Indian sachems, Canonicus and
Miantunomi. From John Maxson, the first white child born in Rhode Island,
descended John Maxson, Jr., his son, born in 1666, and to him was born
John Maxson 3d, in 1701, whose son, David Maxson, was the father of Chloe
Maxson, the mother of the subject of this sketch, who with her husband,
Capt. Samuel Clark, and nine children, removed to Brookfield, Madison
county, New York, in 1801, where Capt. Clark died, Feb. 13, 1830, and his
wife on the 19th of March, 1833.

1.Deed of John Maxson to his son, John of Westerly, 5 Sep 1726:three
tracts: 1/2 the tract I now dwell on that was ( ?, hard to read) by my
honored fatther, that is to say the north half of the farm; half of the
tract I bought of Mr. John Saunders; and all that part of my lands that I
bought of Mr. John Wells bounding upon lands of Joseph Maxson's and
lands of Joseph Covey, lands of Tobias Brand, lands of John Davis, and
lands of John Lewis. (I have photocopy of this.)(FHL #0940223 Westerly,

2. Deed of John Maxson to his "son-in-law John Davis, Joyner", 7 Sep
1726: 56 Acres bounded byOliver Babcock, John Crandall, John Lewis,
Tobias Brand, land by name of 'Egypt'. (This is on page 173 of the First
Book of Land Records.
3.Deed of John Davis, Joyner, to Jonathan Maxson, Jun., 30 Nov 1731,
land known by the name of 'Egypt", bounded by Oliver Babcock, John
Maxson, land lately sold by John Crandall to Jonathan Maxson, land of
Tobias Brand, land of John Lewis. This deed is signed by John and
It seems clear that the same land is being transferred in the above
deeds. The only possible problem would be a question as to which John
Maxson is the man in #1. However, since he mentions his honored father,
presumably the man of the will above, and all the other John Maxsons can
be shown to be living in 1726, John of #1 is the son of the John Maxson
who wrote the will and it is his daughter, Elizabeth, who m. John Davis.
And he is the Joyner who rec'd 13 shillings for the coffin he made for
his wife's grandfather.
