  6. John Flanders b.Feb. 11, 1659 d.Dec. 24, 1716

FROM History of York by Banks page 166/167: STEPHEN FLANDERS This is very rare English name but is found frequently in Yorkshire where it appears as Flunder and Flounder, and in the adjoining county of Lincoln as Flanders. The name of this emigrant is found only once in the records in 1649 when his wife (Jane) was "presented for abusing her husband and his neighbors." (Court Records I, 135.) As there is no further report of the case he must have removed immediately to Salisbury where he was taxed in 1650 and lived there until his death June 27, 1684.

From Directory of Ancestral Heads of New England Families 1620-1700 by Holmes: Stephen, b.Eng., about 1620, was at Salisbury, Mass., 1640.
