  • Notes 
    • John. There are conflicting dates and facts surrounding the John Greeneā€™s of the second and third generations, which give rise to the speculations that indeed there may be a third immigrant line which never has been successfully traced. For example, there is a record of Mary Jefferay (born in 1642 who married "John Green of N. " This couple has no place in the genealogical charts of either John Greene of Warwick or John Greene of Quidnessett. He is recorded as owning land with his Father, in 1666, in Quidnessett (again the 1651 birth date becomes illogical). He married about or before 1685. Some records give his Wife's name as Abigail D ____. However, it is generally agreed that she was Abigail Wardwell... In 1685... as John Greene, II, he was awarded land as a partner in the Fones Purchase... He remained in East Greenwich until 1690.... About 1690, he removed to Coventry where he had purchased a large tract of forest land.... He died 6 Oct. 1729, and was buried in the Old Field Cemetery, which he had set aside on his land as a family burying ground. His will made Oct. 2, 1729, was proved Oct. 21, of the same year.
