We have been researching genealogy just a few months. We have two possible lines of descendancy from John of New Haven. First through son Benjamin and granddaughter Mary intersecting with Moulthrop, Potter, and Goodsell families. Second through daughter Silence who married Bradley and intersecting with other members of the Moulthrop family and back to the same Goodsell ancestor. Then going through some Hoags, Smith, etc.

I've read some of the info on and the Broket Archive at They reach different conclusions. And then there was a discussion between Fleming, Arwen and Brockett in this forum during 2005. It looked like there was some leaning toward the Hitchin/Dunton/yeoman theory that appears to have been the conclusion of the Broket Archive at the time. But then that seems to have been disproved by the DNA study? I think that says that the New Haven John in 4 and 5 can't be related to the Hitchin/Dunton/yeoman line in 7, 8 and 9.

So I'm very confused about what the current status of John of New Haven's parentage. Was the Wheathampstead > Caswell line proved impossible? Is his parentage just unknown at this time?
