Since no probate record or similar type record has been found for John, it has been difficult to establish his family. Several of the children are only lpresumed to belong to his family. There is little if any doubt concerning the parentage of Harman, John and Agnes (children 2,3, and 5). Abigail Atwo Shurtleff, great gd dau. of John (child 3)--she herself born 1755--ma statement to the effect that John had two brothers Stephen and William. John, Stephen and Henry were closely associated in the Plymouth Colony, having land adjoining each other, and by their actions indicating a close relationship. Johanna, child no. 1, is known to be a child of a John Atwood, and since the above father is the only John Atwood known to have been in this parish at that time, it is assumed she was his first child. IOt could have been by a former marriage, but there is no additional evidence. The claim that a Mary and Philip Atwood also belong to this family cannot be supported by any evidence.

b. 30 Jan 1580/1581 St Martin-, In-The-Field, London, England Occupation: Leather seller "In 1644 Mr. John Atwood, a prominent and wealthy citizen, who had come over about 1633. In 1638 he was an assistant; in 1641-2-3-4, a deputy from Plymouth; and in 1641, Colonial Treasurer. He lived on North Street, near the Rock, a in a house which in 1638 he bought of Governor Prence for �80. In 1649 his widow, Ann, sold this estate, for �35, to Benjamin Vermayes, who the year before had married Bradford's daughter Mercy. The deed was careful to state that it included "all the fruit-trees on the land;" but it excepted the shingles I the cellar, - which is the first notice yet found of this new covering for roof. To this deed the excellent Mistress Atwood made her mark, as many of even the foremost dames of that day would have been forced to do. Mr. Atwood, with all his prominence, is frequently mentioned in the Annals as John Wood. (There was in Duxbury a less-known John Atwood, a weaver.) Source: The Pilgrim Republic" p 436He helped finance the building of the largest ship (as of that time) built in Plymouth and had a 1/16th share.Gen. Dic. says he had no child. mentioned in will.
