    Notes 
    • From Frances Manwaring’s History of Norwich, Connecticut:
      “John, the second son of the proprietor John, born in July, 1661,— probably the third male child born in Norwich,—married Abigail Birchard, Oct. 23, 1690, and subsequently removed to Lebanon. He was the first constable of that town, chosen at its organization, May 31,1698, and corporal of the first militia company, 1700.
      “His youngest son, James, born April 29, 1702, is on the list of Yale College graduates as Mr. Jacobus Calking, 1725. He was an ordained minister, and officiated as such for several years, but afterwards settled as a farmer in the western district of Norwich, where he died in 1756.”

      John and Abigail removed to Lebanon in the mid 1690s, one of the first settlers there. He was of Philips Patent, NY, by 1740 when he was taxed in the Sough Precinct. He probably died soon after 1745 when he sold land to his sons. [2]
