bullet  General Notes:

1641 Map of New Haven, "Nine Squares", shows a lot assigned to Joshua Atwater p12

See the notes on his brother David for evidence of their immigration and the founding of New Haven.

Representative of the colony in 1652.

Magistrate in 1658

1655: moved to Milford.

1659: moved to Boston, retaining the house in New Haven, until 1665, when he sold it to his brother David.

His descendants in the male line became extinct after several generations, and hence the subject of Francis Atwater's 'History' is the genealogy of the David Atwater line. Atwater indicates that there are other sons and daughters of record, but since the male line dies out, he does not seem to be concerned with them. 820
