  • Notes 
    • Orline Alexander, Introduction pg. xiii, paragraph two:
      ..., and I think of our Matthew St. John , who, by the way lived in St. Botolph, Bishopsgate, in London, before going to Conn. (N.E. Hist. and Gen. Register, vol. 54, p. 342; Colonial Papers; British Public Records)

    Residence:
    • Appears to have lived on Kingshead or Kensington High Street

    Died:
    • Town vote probably meant unlike Mathias 1601-1669, that Mathew b. 1590 died in 1671 intestate and his son [Mathias b. 1635] then inherited the property by vote: "On Jan. 3, 1670-71, the Town of Norwalk voted that his son " Matthias Sension is to take up his proportion of six acres to the hundred upon Elie's Nek, next to his uncle Hoite." Probably this was Walter Hoite (Whitney, 573)." OSA pg. 5
