      1. Citation Information: "The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1620-1633," Volumes I-III:
      "John Ellet
      Origin: Unknown
      Migration: 1633
      First Residence: Watertown
      Removes: Stamford 1646
      Estate: Granted a homestall of eight acres, one acre in Patch Meadow, a twenty-five acre Great Dividend, four acres in the Beaverbrook Plowlands, four acres in the Remote Meadows, nine acres of upland beyond the further plain, and a farm of seventy-eight acres [WaBOP 5, 6, 8, 13, 40, 95]. By the time of the Composite Inventory he had disosed of his grant in the Beaverbrook Plowlands, at that date held by John Whitney Jr. [WaBOP 139]. On 8 May 1646 John Ellet sold the remainder of his Watertown lands to Thomas Wincoll [SLR 1:74]. The Stamford lands of "John Elette" were listed on 5 March 1650: one house & houselot, one acre and a half; two acres meadow in the East Field; three acres meadow in the same field; and five acres in the North field; to which was added on 7 March 1650 "more of John Elot," one acre and a half of upland in the North Field [StTR 1:32-33]. On 27 December 1650 "Edmon Lockwood" sold to "John Ellott" two acres in the East Field [StTR 1:33]. Birth: By about 1608 based on estimated date of marriage. Death: After 30 November 1658 (creditor in inventory of Thomas Stevens [StTR 84]). (John Ellet was named as an abutter in a deed as late as 20 February 1659/60 [StTR 1:58], but this is no guarantee that he was still alive.) Marriage: By 1633 Margaret ____ (who is given as the mother of all the children listed below). "Marget wife to John Eliot" died at Stamford 17 August 1658 [StTR 1:26]. Children (all born Watertown):
      i Elizabeth, b. 2 February 1633[/4] [WaVR 3]; no further record.
      ii John, b. 12 June 1636 [WaVR 4]; no further record.
      iii Anne, b. 12 July 1638 [WaVR 5]; no further record.
      iv Samuel, b. June 1640 [WaVR 8]; bur. 30 July 1640 [WaVR 8].
      v Martha, b. 27 January 1640[/1] [WaVR 8]; bur. 28 January 1640[/1] [WaVR 8]; no further record. (These last two entries are clearly in conflict; given the spacing between the other births, Martha's dates should probably be one year later.)
      vi Sarah, b. 22 December 1643 [WaVR 11]; she may be the Sarah Elliot who married at Stamford 27 January 1658[/9] Thomas Roberts [StTR 1:87].
      Associations: John Ellet and his family were part of the group migration from Watertown to Stamford in 1646, with Nicholas Knapp, Nicholas Theale, William Potter, Robert Lockwood, John Waterbury, Richard Ambler and GREGORY Taylor [GMN 1:8]. Comments: In the grants of Beaverbrook Plowlands and Remote Meadows, which were in part based on size of household, Ellet received four acres. This corresponds to John, his wife Margaret, daughter Elizabeth and son John, and indicates that Elizabeth was in fact the first Child, and there is no evidence of earlier children who might have been born in England. After 1658 this family seems to fade away, and there is no certainty that the marriage of Thomas Roberts and Sarah Elliot belongs here. It may be that more than one of the daughters married in the Stamford area and left descendants, or it may be that the family simply died out. Since there is no record of a probate for John Ellet, it may also be that he moved away from New England."
