  "Name was changed to Hoisington. Thought to have orginally been Horsington or Hossington. Also known as "John of Long Island". 22
  He served as a sergeant in Capt. Samuel Wadsworth's company of Mass. militia in King Philip's war, 29 Feb through 24 Mar 1675/76. 36 86
  According to Dr. James Tompsett of Avon NY 7/20/1994 John Hoisington I (Horsington) was born in Hossington England, married in 1684. " He took the Oath of Allegiance at Hadley MA on 2/8/1678 before Major Pynchon and was in Captain Wasworth Co. in the King Philips War. Later we find brief records of him as living in Weathersfield, Conn. We do not know the name of his wife but we do know that he was the father of but one son." **
  From "Genealogies and Biographs of Ancient Wethersfield" (page 427): HOISINGTON, JOHN, who was a soldier in Capt. Samuel Wadsworth's Mass. Co in King Philip's War, 1675-6, and on Feb 8, 1678-9, took the freeman's oath at Hatfield; abt. 1689, was a signer, at Weth., to a petition for the erection of a plantation at Wabaquesset, or Mattabeset Country, etc.---A. Kidder"
  "On 8 February 1678/9 "Jno Hossenton" and "Timo Wales" were among ninety-two men who took the oath of allegiance 'administered to all Persons from 16 years old and upward' at Hadley, Mass. a Connecticut River town (Register 4 [1850]:25). Contrary to Almon Kidder's statement, no Horsington signed in Hatfield for that date..." 36
  "It is my present belief however that he had been married before while in Connecticut and that his only son of record, John II was by his former wife for in the probate records of Early Connecticut (Mainwaring) appears the statement that about Michaelmas, 1692 one William Hills of Hocanum (Weathersfield) is proved to have willed that "_the boy Hossington be at the dispose of his (Hills') dau Phyllis (24 yrs old) until he come of full age". 22
  "John Hossington held local office in Suffolk County Long Island and married Mary (Stanborough) Edwards..." 22
  From East-Hampton [LI, NY] Records (index)Hossington, John 226, w. of 80.....226
  "1702, April 7, John Mulford, Supervisor; Robert Hudson and John Hossinton, Constables; Thomas Chatfield, Town Clerk; Josiah Hobart, Justice." Fred Q. Bowman cites the "Records of the Town of East-Hampton" in giving his death date as 20 Dec 1703 36 .
