  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: Sgt. John owned a lot of land and property as noted in the many deeds and bequests of land granted him. The oldest record book in Simsbury, called the Red Book, notes that on 9 Jan 1693, land was deeded to John, on the east side of the river toward Weatogue, which was the home site of his father. On the 25th of Feb 1683, he received land west of this lot, and on the 16 Dec 1685, he received 6 or 7 acres at 'hoppe brook'. On the 20th of Dec 1693, a strip of land about 20 acres along the side of his property was deeded to him by the inhabitants of Simsbury. John was named 'vence viewer', 22 Nov, 1682 and in 1684, along with John Moses and again named to this post 1694/95. In 1685 Joshua Holcomb and John Slater with John Humphrey were named to 'run the town bounds'. His estate was assessed at his death at 24.5 pounds, with 15 acres of land, cattle, corn, 3 guns, pistol and holbard, which was inventoried 14 Jan 1697/98 by his son John II and his brother Lt. Samuel Humphrey. Hartford Probate: VI p.12, pp 31,32 and Simsbury Records Vol II. p 48.
