John almost certainly came to America as a Royalist prisoner--one of the 8,000 Scottish prisoners taken by Cromwell at the Battle of Worcester in 1651. Virtually no details are available concerning this John, and the few facts gathered could feasibly belong to more than one John ROSS. Quite likely, however, they relate to the same man because of the locations and years involved.
John was married to Mary Haggett, who was born in 1646, and died at Windham, Connecticut, on November 5, 1725. She had moved to Windham to spend her latter days with her son Joseph "of Ipswich" and who had previously moved to Windham County, Connecticut.
John is recorded as having been a resident of Ipswich, Massachusetts, in 1664, and is further recorded as having had thirteen children: sons John, William, Benjamine, Joshua, Jonathan, Daniel, and Joseph; and daughters Mary, Sarah, Abigail, Susannah, Hannah, and Elizabeth.
