Children with Daniel Lovett:

Immigrant Ancestor

In 1632, Johanna Blott arrived in Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay Colony, New England, with her parents, Robert and Susanna Blott. The Rev. John Elliot's Record of Church Members, "A recorde of such as adjoyned themselves vnto the fellowship of the Church of Christ at Roxborough", has the entry, "Mary Blott a maide servant, she came in the yeare 1632, & was after married to Steward Woodfrod of this church, who after removed to Couecticott to Hartford church, where she lived in christian sort". Mary was the daughter of Robert and Susanna Blott (Robert mentions her by the name Woodford in his will) and, as a single young lady of 23 years in 1632, she presumably would have accompanied them when they immigrated, probably arriving in Boston but soon removing to Charlestown. The earliest record of Robert and Susannah in New England is a 1634 reference to a garden plot in Charlestown Records. In March 1636, when he was a resident of Charlestown, Robert forfeited, for not having built upon it, a land allotment formerly granted to him in Boston, conceivably granted upon his arrival from England.6,2,7
