He had moved to Saybrook by 1647. In 1649 he served as a deputy in the General Court from Saybrook and continued to serve as a deputy, off and on, until 1664. He was town selectman in 1656 and served as town justice (commissioner) in 1664.

He was named as a patentee of the Royal Charter of Connecticut in 1662 and moved to Milford a couple of years later.

Lothrop, John (b. 20 DEC 1584, d. 8 NOV 1653)
Note: The Reverend John Lothrop (as he spelled it) was one of the foremost clergymen of early New England.

He was born of a landed family in Yorkshire and received a degree of bachelor of arts from Queens College, Cambridge, in 1609. He preached at Bennington, in Hertfordshire, and Egerton, in Kent, but renounced his orders when he could no longer conform to the rituals of the Church of England. He joined a congregation of non-conformists in London and became pastor of the group in 1625. The congregation was tracked down by Bishop Laud on Apr 29 1632 and Lothrop and most of the congregation were arrested.

Lothrop spent two years in prison, during which time his wife died. His children appealed to the Archbishop and he was freed on Apr 24 1634 on a bond to absent himself from all conventicles and to appear before the Court of High Commission. Instead, he accepted an invitation of the settlers of Scituate, in Plymouth Colony, to become their minister, and fled to New England with thirty of his followers. He arrived in Boston on Sep 18 1634 aboard the Griffin. Also on board that ship were Anne Marbury Hutchinson (see Nos. 1826 and 14229) and the Reverend Zechariah Symmes (No. 3844).

He went immediately to Scituate, arriving on Sep 27 and preached twice the next day. He was ordained the first minister of the new church in Scituate on Jan 19, 1634/5. The church was built and dedicated in 1636. The following year he was admitted as a freeman in the colony of Plymouth.

The colony built a house for him which has been described as follows: "the walls were made of poles filled between with stones and clay, the roof thatched, the chimney to the mantle, of rough stone and above of cob work, the windows of oiled paper and the floor of hand sawed planks."

According to Ernest Flagg, "He was a strong man and an independent thinker, holding views far in advance of his time, which he fearlessly proclaimed in both the old and new worlds. It has been said of him: 'No pastor was ever more beloved by his people and none ever had a greater influence for good.' He is accounted one of the great religious fathers of New England."

Inadequate land in Scituate caused Lothrop and half his congregation to move to Barnstable in Oct 1639 and he lived there the rest of his life as minister to that congregation.

An article on him appears in the Dictionary of American Biography, in the Dictionary of National Biography, and the American National Biography.

The Rev. John Lothrop and Hannah House are the 5th great grandparents of President Ulysses S. Grant, the eighth great grandparents of President Franklin Roosevelt, the 10th great grandparents of President George Bush and the 11th great grandparents of President George W. Bush. In addition, the Rev. Lothrop and his wife, who had a total of nine children, have a vast progeny, including several hundred thousand, at the least, alive today. Among the more famous of their descendants are John Pierpont Morgan, Jr.; George Curzon, 1st Marquess Curzon, Viceroy of India; John Hinckley, who attempted to assassinate Pres. Ronald Reagan; Bendict Arnold, the traitor; Sir Robert Borden, Prime Minister of Canada; Sarah Caldwell, the conductor; Brooke Shields, the actress; Georgia O'Keefe, the artist; Eli Whitney, the inventor of the cotton gin; William Carrier, the inventor of air conditioning; Joseph Smith, the Mormon prophet; Alfred Fuller, founder of the Fuller Brush Company; Melviile Fuller, Chief Justice of the United States; Hart Crane, the author; Charles Ives, the composer; Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape designer; Charles Post, founder of Post Cereals; Thomas Dewey, Governor of New York; George Kennon, the diplomat; Charles Guiteau, the assassin of President James Garfield; Henry Wallace, Vice President of the United States; Oliver Wendell Holmes, the poet, and his son, the Supreme Court Justice; Benjamin Spock, the pediatrician; Tuesday Weld, the actress; Anthony Perkins, the actor; Secretary of State John Foster Dulles; Louis Auchincloss, the author; Secretary of State Robert Bacon; Sir Charles Brooke, Rajah of Sarawak; Kingman Brewster, President of Yale; Louis Comfort Tiffany, the glassmaker; George Gilder, the economist, and Julia Child, the chef.
