John JUoss ,lm;algimnt sneestor, was first about ^ooton 
In 1636, than New Haven in 1640, or bo fore, where ho was a founder* 
and represented the poodle In the General Court at Hartford, Conn. 

In 1667 he settled a distriot between Now Haven and 
Hartford, and secured the name of Walllngford in the Court for 
the tract extending to Pilgrim's Harbor on the north, and inoludod 
within Its bounds the towns or parishes of Merlden, Cheshire, and 
nil tha or stern part of Prospect, and the eases name for the town 
whloh in atill knowfa as Wnlllngf ord, Connecticut. He was already 
between sixty-five and sesranty years of age when accomplishing 
thane things. Until 1670 he continued to bo a member of the 
Genaral Court from Haw Havon, and resided there; then removed to 
Walllngford, thereafter frequently representing the district as 
n member of the General Court, being very active and alert for 
the welfare of his community, and a leader among the settlers, 
which soon wero increasing rapidly. . He was known as Kr.Moss* 
commissioner for tha now plantation. Those appointed a eommltteo 
to manage all plantation affairs were Mr. Samuel Street, John Koss, 
John Brocl:ott,and Abraham Doollttle,the three others fooing. close 
friends of John Lioss,an& Ur.Doollttle also a member of his family 
by marriage.

John IIodb was from England, and the of Walllngford 
w-». derived therefron,to which Inland refers: "And by tho parents 
and donations of Edmundo , Er le of Cornwaul,and lord of the House 
of "alli,ngford,that thoro wer fourteen Parich chirches In fralllng-

The caotle of great also rnd nagnificence Dtood by tho river. 
Once doctroyod,tho ancient town was robfcllt,lt la believed, by 
V/llllnia 1. 

In flla dfrlier years in this country, tho nane of John 
Koss was spelled Uosse, and is so given in tho books of "Suffolk 
Deeds, "and enrly histories of Mass. and Conn. In more recent 
tines tho majority of tho family ure the apolllmg, Morse. 
The Court Rolls of Ed ard lit, of Englrnd,have Ilonry del ilosse, 
rn& ft Yorkshire poll-tax, of 1579,Eobert de Mos, those surnames 
bains taken from some nose or moor, says Baring-Gould. 

John Moss of America was a Godly nan, one of tho moot 
cincero Puritans, and of hie it has boon said ,that the wisest 
and nost pious sought for his counsel. A writer in the Genealogy 
of Control How York,. i ays, "Of those who euigrated to New England 
in early days nonw were more highly honored by their fellows 
than John Moos, who Is believed to have boon a member of a family 
of high standing in England on account of his high attainments 
and evident culture. The family hrs included many educators, min- 
isters and won of tho learned professions, and the name has always 
stood for good citlzenshi; ." Tho saao writer says that John 
Moss was ror.dy to perform his full duty at all 

His children were; John, died young, Samuel, Abigail, 
Rev. Joseph, Ephmim, probably died young , Mary, Mercy, lived in New 
Haven, John , born Oot. 12, 1650, Elisabeth, Hester, Isaac, died young. 

With him, in establishing the now town, and among the 
original proprietors thereof ,were his eons, Mercy end John, though 
Mercy seems never to have resided there, and his descendants 
evidently removed, most of them, from New Haven to Massachusetts. 
Some of the other participants in forming the now co:^iunity were 
Thomas Yale, John Parker, Sr., John Hall* Joshua Culver, John Lathrop, 
Thomas Beach, and Roger Tyler. 

Ho went to Nap Haven with Rev. John Davenport, Theophllus 
F.aton, afterwards Governor, and feUnijIopklns.Theophilus Eaton being 
a family connection of the Hopkins, and his wife the mother of 
David and Thomas Yale. John Y/inthrop as tha loading figure 
in the purchase of the new plantation. In the "History of 
the Colony of Now Haven" by Edward M./4rtra*er,wo read that John 
Moss was one of the first planters of the colony, laying the 
foundation for church and state. Mr. Hoes, John Hall, Sr., John 
Hall, Jr., with Mr.Sruauel Street, Eli asaph Preston, and others,held 
r oonforonoo to establish a church. For the first two years 
Ur.John Harriman preached in the town on the Sabbath for thorn j 
then Hr. Samuel Street for more than sixteen years, and was followed 
by Ur. Samuel Tihittlesoy,who published a sermon on the j.assing of 
John Hall, in 1730. When the growth of the church, which the founder 
had organized as Congregational, admitted of a now building, tho 
second, the Rev. John Davenport was present to assist in laying the 
foundation, and gave a discourse from the words of IsUah/'My beloved 
hath a vineyard in a very t -ultful hill." 


Tho wife of Jolxn Moss was Abigail ChaBlae . He mentioned 
as his brother-in-law, John Charles, vrtio had beon soao years in 
Mas 8*, was a sea-faring man,v?h© removed first to Branford,and 
afterwards to Snybrook. It Is said that the year of the birth 
of John Hoss was l605,and that he died in W7 at the advanced
