    Notes 
    • About 1654, John, purchased in New London,CT the homestead of
      Capt.Daniel Dennison, who moved to Mystic. In 1657 John's agent sold
      the estate to William Chapman. It is possible that John stayed at New
      London only a short time. At the time of his death in 1675, his
      estate inventory included a house and 8 acres, his homestall, 10 acres
      of pasture, 5 acres of land all in Watertown and a right to land in
      New London,Ct. John was in Capt. Beers' Company in King Philps War.
      As the story is stated, about 11Sep1675, Capt.Beers, with 36 men went
      up the Connecticut River to observe how things stood at a new
      plantation called Squakeag, now Northfield. The Indians a few days
      before(unknown to them) had fallen upon the place and killed 10
      persons, and now laid an ambush for the English, whom it appears they
      expected. Capt. Beers' Company had marched 30 miles through a hideous
      forest. On arriving within three miles of the place, they were fired
      upon by a host of enemies and a large portion of their number fell.
      The other gained an eminence and fought bravely till their Captain was
      slain, when they fled in every direction. Only sixteen escaped, John
      Chinery was wounded and died the next day at Northfield, leaving one
      child. His widow Sarah never remarried and died almost 30 years later.
