Notes
a. Note:   Conant, Joshua (Joshua2 Roger1) was born 15 Apr 1657 at Salem and baptized 4 June. After the death of his father he was brought up in Salem. There, at the age of nineteen, Joshua Conant married twenty-four-year-old Christian More. She died 30 May 1680, nearly four years later, just eighteen days after the birth of their only child, Joshua. In 1684, her husband sold for �30 seventeen acres in Beverly that his grandfather Roger had bequeathed to him .
  Joshua was involved in historic events in 1689. In the spring of that year when William and Mary supplanted James II in the Bloodless Revolution , the colonists at Boston deposed Sir Edmund Andros, the Governor of New England, who they claimed was plotting with France, and sent him to England for trial. On 17 Sep, a French fleet captured several vessels out of Salem, including Captain Joshua Conant's ketch 'Thomas and Mary' off the port of Torbay. On 23 Nov, Captain Joshua appeared before John Hathorne, assistant magistrate, and gave this deposition: Two French warships and a merchant ship seized his ketch, put him on board the flagship 'Lumbuscado', and carried him as a prisoner to Port Royal. In conversation with a Mr. Mero, who had it from the French, he learned that thirteen ships from France were headed for Boston because Sir E. A. had sent to the French king for them and would deliver up the country into their hands. Near the French coast, English warships captured several of them and dispersed the rest; 'but hearing that Sir E. A. was taken and now held [the French decided] they should not proceed at present but threatened what they would do next summer.' Little evidence and much hearsay!
