    Notes 
    • John was one of the most distinguished of the colonists, being appointed by his townsmen to nearly every office of trust and honor. He was a deputy to the general court almost continually for thirty-seven years, from 1659 to 1696, being with few exceptions, the longest term of service known in the annals of the state. In King Philip's war he was a lieutenant and captain, from which he obtained the appellation by which he was most commonly known of "Captain John Stanley." He was constable in Farmington in 1654; sergeant in 1669; ensign in 1674; captain 1767; received a grant of one hundred and twenty acres of land from the general court in 1674 and another in 1687; he was one of a committee on Indian troubles in 1689.
