      Note:
      . Settled in Windsor Connecticut 163 9. Information taken from Descendants of Joseph Loomis in A merica and his Antecedents in the Old World, 1875. 1908.: " Nearly all of those persons in the United States who are known by the name of Loomis are descended from Joseph Loomis , who settled in Windsor, Conn., in 1639...He came from Braintree, Essex County, England, in the year 1638 in the
      ship called the Susan & Ellen of London whereof was master Mr . Edward Payne."

      "Joseph Loomis was a woolen-draper in Braintree, Essex county, England;sailed from London April 11, 1638, in the shi p "Susan and Ellen," and arrived at Boston July 17, 1638, t arrying about 1 year at Dorchester, Mass., it is thought. It is mentioned in the town records of Windsor that on the 2 nd of Feb., 1640, he had granted him from the plantation 21 acres adjoining Farmington river, on the west side of th e Connecticut river, this 21 acres including the site of th e first English settlement made in Connalso several larg e tracts of land on th east side of the Connecticut, partl y from the town and partly by purchase."
      " He therefore probably came to Windsor in the summer or aut umn of 1639, and he is generally supposed to have come in c ompany with Rev. Ephraim Huet, who arrived at Windsor, Aug . 17, 1639. He brought with him five sons, all of whom wer e freemen, Oct. 7, 1669, and three daughters. His house was situated near the mouth of the Farmington river on "The I sland," so called because at every freshet it became tempor arily an island by the overflowing of the Connecticut River . He died Nov. 25, 1658...This first settlement of Connecti cut was made on "the Island", so-called, now owned by the Loomis Institute."
      " "Joseph Loomis was not one of these unfortunate yet ambitious farmers. His wife was the daughter of a man considered a s very well-to-do in that time and region; a man whose test amentary bequests of money alone were upwards of fourteen t housand dollars (present reckoning). Loomis is known to hav e been a woolen draper, a merchant engated in the purchas e of cloth from the many weavers who wove on hand-looms i n their cottage-homes. He had a store in Braintree stocke d therewith and with other goods which a "draper" dealth in . These products, he sold at large, both wholesale and retail, to tailors and consumers in general. Braintree and near by towns were centres of cloth manufacture."

      "John Lummys, the father and tailor, is shown by his will , dated 1619 to have been a tradesman and real-estate holde r in comfortable circumstances, and a citizen of esteem i n the church and community. His son Joseph advanced the for tune of the family. Contemplating his means and position i n England, and his situation in America, it seems entirel y fair to say that he was a prosperous man in England, an d of the better class of settlers in New England. Long it h as been seen that he was independent in Windsor-and particu larly so as to the location of his estate there."

      "JOSEPH LOOMIS, son of John and Agnes Loomis, was probably b orn before 1590, England; married in Messing, Co. Essex, England, June 30, 1614, Mary White, bap. Aug. 24, 1590, Mary White was a daughter of Robert and Bridget (Allgar) White of Messing, Co. Essex, England, who were married June 2 4, 1585.

      Joseph Loomis was a woolen-draper in Braintree, Essex count y, England; sailed from London April 11, 1638, in the shi p "Susan and Ellen," and arrived at Boston July 17, 1638, t arrying about 1 year at Dorchester, Mass., it is thought. I t is mentioned in the town records of Windsor, Vol. 1, tha t on the 2nd of Feb., 1640, he had granted him from the pla ntation 21 acres adjoining Farmington river, on the west si de of the Connecticut river, this 21 acres including the si te of the first English settlement made in Conn.; (See Reco rds of Abigail Wolcott Ellsworth Chapter, D. A. R.), also s everal large tracts of land on the east side of the Connect icut, partly from the town and partly by purchase.

      He therefore probably came to Windsor in the summer or autu mn of 1639, and he is generally supposed to have come in co mpany with Rev. Ephraim Huet, who arrived at Windsor, Aug . 17, 1639. He brought with him five sons, all of whom wer e freemen, Oct. 7, 1669, and three daughters. His house wa s situated near the mouth of the Farmington river on "The I sland," so called because at every great freshet it becam e temporarily an island by the overflowing of the Connectic ut River. He died Nov. 25, 1658, as appears from the follow ing record:
