* On page 12 of Drake's "Founders of New England" and page 150 of
Hotten's "Original Lists of Emigrants" is a list, dated June 22, 1632, of
passengers to be "transported to New England." The names of John
Talcoate, William Goodwin, William Wadsworth, and William Lewis
appear in this list which accounts for their non-appearance at a court held
in Braintree three days later and entries of August 4 show that the emi-
gration had become known. The record of the court held July 16 of that
year shows that John Steele was then in Suffolk county and had been for
some time.

The "Records of the Town and Selectmen of Cambridge (Massa-
chusetts), 1630-1703," pages 4 and 5, show that all five men were residents
of that town on January 7, 1632-33. Some three years later they were of
the party that made settlement at Hartford, Connecticut.
