'Joseph, 1711 and 1713, deeded lands to his sons, Joseph and Jonathan." pg. 545: Abraham Finch was born in County York, England, about 1585 and probably came to New England with Governor Winthrop in 1630. He settled first at Watertown, MA; removed to Wethersfield, CT in 1634 where he died, probably in 1638. His children were: Abraham, John, Daniel, and perhaps David. Abraham Finch was killed by the Indians in 1637 at Wethersfield, John removed to Stamford, CT in 1641 and died there Sep. 5, 1657."
      3. "Families of Old Fairfield," vol. 1. See Anne 1-10-"3-8. Appendix pg. 718-20: "Finch. It is the writer's belief that Abraham (1) is fictitious; that Abraham (2) who was killed by the Indians was son of Daniel; and that Abraham (3) and Abraham (4) are identical. The conventional pedigree above is built on a single record; for in 1640, in records of the estate of Abraham (2), who left an only son Abraham (3), the Child's grandfather, erroneously called Abraham, offered to educate it. The child's grand-father should have been called Daniel." There are further reasons given in explanation as to why Jacobus believes the above."
