52 Ancestors: #48 John Gardner/Garnet – England to Massachusetts

John Gardner was my ninth great-grandfather. Born in England around 1624 and died November 24, 1668 in Hingham, Massachusetts.

The son of Thomas Gardner and Margarete Frier, he was baptized: 15 May 1624 – St Gregory by St Paul, London, England.

He came to Hingham in 1650.

He married on April 10, 1651 in Boston, Massachusetts to Mary Arnold, daughter of William Arnold. She was born 1630 in Leeds, Yorkshire, England and died October 9, 1710 in Hingham, Plymouth county, Massachusetts.

John came to Hingham about 1650 and in 1656 had land granted to him in the south part of the town. Whether he was a connection of the early Garners, or Gardners, of Boston is uncertain, as but little information has come down to us relating to his early history. The christian name of his wife, whom he married at Boston April 10, 1651, was Mary. She survived him and married secondly, June 18, 1669 to Nathaniel Chubbuck.
John died 24 November 1668.
