"(I) John Johnson, brother of Edward and William, and son of William of Herne Hill, England, brought with him his wife Margery and five children. He was admitted a freeman in 1630, settled in Roxbury, and was called a yeoman. October 19, 1630, he was chosen constable of Roxbury and surveyor of all the arms of the colony. He kept a tavern, was a man of wealth and distinction, and a deputy to the general court in 1634 and for many years afterward. His house was burned August 6, 1645, when seventeen barrels of powder and many arms belonging to the colony were lost. He was elected a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company in 1638. He was granted three hundred acres of land by the general court as compensation for his services as surveyor-general. His wife Margery died in 1635.

William Heath +

"2. WILLIAMA HEATH, born say 1550-1555, and probably the eldest son in the family, was buried at Ware 7 January 1624/5. The name of his wife has not been learned.*
That William, and not either of his brothers Robert or John, was the father of the next generation of Heaths in Ware is strongly suggested by the fact that he inherited his father's house there, to the exclusion of his brothers. He was probably well established there already.
Although the Ware parish registers do not include the name of the father of children baptized there in the period 1581-1604, the spacing of the baptisms strongly implies that there was only one Heath family having children in the parish in the 1580s and 1590s. Beginning in 1604, the baptismal registers include the father's name, and that year William's son Thomas was baptized there. Chronology suggests that this was William Heath's last child. Significantly, no further children for this William appear in the registers of either Ware or Great Amwell.
Probable children; surname Heath:
i. JOHN, bp. at Ware 5 Aug. 1581; d. probably young, before 25 July 1591 when another son was named John.

ALICE, bp. at Ware 22 Dec. 1583; buried at Great Amwell 10 Oct. 1640; probably the Alice Heath who m. there 19 Sept. 1624, as his first wife, NATHANIEL LARKE of Amwell Street, Great Amwell, who was buried there 24 Feb. 1648/9, having survived his second wife, Annis _____, by only a few days. He was one of the overseers of the will of Thomas Johnson of Ware, dated 13 Aug. 1639, proved 9 Feb. 1640 (ERO, D/ABW 57/46).

iii. ISAAC1, bp. at Ware 13 Feb. 1586/7; d. at Roxbury, Mass., 21 Jan. 1660/1 aged about 75 years; m. at Ware, Herts., 14 Jan. 1628/9, ELIZABETH MILLER, bp. at Bishop's Stortford, Herts., 3 March 1593/4, bur. at Roxbury 14 Jan. 1664/5 aged about 70 years, daughter of Thomas Miller, gentleman, and his wife Agnes. (For information about the Miller family, see Spencer Miller, "The Millers of Bishop's Stortford," in New York Genealogical and Biographical Record [hereinafter NYGBR], 70[1939]:148.) Elizabeth was sister of the immigrants Agnes, wife of Robert Burnap, and Margaret, wife of Thomas Waterman. On 22 Dec.1630, Isaac Heath witnessed the will of Agnes Porter, widow, of Ware (ERO, D/ABW 50/101), whose stepson, Edward Porter, and stepdaughter, Elizabeth Porter (later wife of heath's nephew, Isaac Johnson of Roxbury, Mass.), immigrated to New England.
Isaac Heath came to New England in 1635 on the ship Hopewell, with his wife Elizabeth, one child, and a cousin, Martha Heath. Upon landing, he proceeded to Roxbury where William Heath was already settled; he represented the town in the General Court in 1637 and 1638. In 1637 he was chosen Ruling Elder of the Roxbury church, and held that position until his death. He was one of the founders of the Roxbury free school in 1645. (For more information, see Davis, Ancestry of Annis Spear, 29-31.)

v. WILLIAM1, baptism not found at Ware, Herts.; bur. at Roxbury, Mass., 30 May 1652. Peter walne, County Archivist for Hertfordshire, suggests that William may have been born at Great Amwell during the period, Oct. 1586 to May 1590, when there is a gap in the records (Register, 122:21). If so, his birth would necessarily be in early to mid-1590, in order to fit his birth between his brothers George and John; such spacing is consistent with the date of his first marriage and the birthdate of his first wife. he m. (1) at Great Amwell, 10 Feb. 1616/7, MARY CRAMPHORNE [sic], bp. at Sawbridgeworth, Herts., 16 Jan. 1592, bur. at Great Amwell 24 Nov. 1621, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Lyndesell) Cramphorne. He m.

He became a prominent figure in Roxbury, representing the town in the colony's first General Court on 14 May 1634 and in the courts of 1637, 1639, and 1640 through 1642.
