  • Notes 
    • "He was Town Clerk in Suffield from 1682 to 1708 as schoolmaster and he was paid 20 pounds a year. He was brought to New England in 1638 when but two years old by his parents and became one of the original proprietors of Suffield, CT. with a grant of 50 acres on Feather St. in 1674. It is a tribute to the pioneer spirit in the Austin blood stream that his Great-grandson Moses Austin and his G G Grandson Stephen Austin were the founders of the first Anglo colony in Texas. It is for them that Austin Texas today bears its name."
