Note: !Joseph Loomis, son of John and Agnes Loomis, was probably born before 1590, in England. He married in Messing, Essex, England, on June 30, 1614, Mary White, baptized August 24, 1590, (See New England H. and G. Register, Vol. 55, pp. 28-29, for copy of Register of Shalford, England, marriages and baptisms), She died in Windsor, Connecticut, August 23, 1652. Mary White was the daughter of Robert and Bridget (Allger) White of Messing, Essex, England, who were married June 24, 1585. Joseph Loomis was a woolen-draper in Braintree, Essex, England. He sailed from London April 11, 1638, in the ship "Susan and Ellen," and arrived at Boston July 17, 1638, tarrying about 1 year at Dorchester, Massachusetts, it was thought. It is mentioned in the town records of Windsor, Volume I, that on the 2nd of February, 1640, he had granted him from the plantation 21 acres adjoining Farmington River, on the west side of the Connecticut River, this 21 acres including the site of the first English settlement made in Connecticut; (See Records of Abigail Wolcott Ellsworth Chapter, D.A.R.), also several large tracts of land on the east side of the Connecticut, partly from the town and partly by purchase. He therefore probably came to Windsor in the summer or autumn of 1639, and he is generally supposed to have come in company with Reverend Ephraim Huet, who arrived at Windsor, August 17, 1639. He brought with him five sons, all of whom were freemen, October 7, 1669, and three daughters. His house was situated near the mouth of the Farmington River on "The Island," so called because at every great freshet it became temporarily an island by the overflowing of the Connecticut River. He died November 25, 1658, as appears from the "Abstract of the Disposition of the Estate of Joseph Loomis, Windsor Connecticut."
