From The History of Fairfield, vol. 2, pp. 441-442:
History of Fairfield, p. 441, states that he was born in Essex, England.
John married Bethiah Kirby, daughter of John Kirby Middletown, Connecticut and Elizabeth, in 1678 in Fairfield, Connecticut, (United States).1 (Bethiah Kirby was born on 14 Feb 1656 in Middlesex, Connecticut, (United States) and died on 21 Nov 1700 in Hartford, Connecticut, (United States).)
History of Fairfield, vol. 2, p. 441 has m. Feb. 14, 1658, but that date makes no sense. Using 1678 instead.
