"On 23 June, 1657, John King of Weymouth deposed before Thomas Danforth in Middlesex County Court in the case of Joshua Tead versus Richard Collicut. He stated that he was "about 57 years" of age and " that he was with Mr. Richard Colicut in Xenebeak River . . . " in May, 1656. (The Genealogical Advertiser, 1: 90-95.) This deposition gives his approximate age as born near 1600."
"John Humphrey came from Dorchester in the county of Dorset, which is six miles north from Weymouth, and it is likely that John and Mary King came from the same locality. Neither the marriage of John Humphrey nor that of John King is on record in the parish of Holy Trinity in Dorchester."
