     Captain Francis Norton Junior was born circa 1606 in Southwark, England.2,3 He was the son of Captain Francis Norton Senior and Mary (?).2
          Francis married Mary Houghton, daughter of Nicholas Houghton and Elinor Newnam, in March 1627/28.4
          Scott Robinson gives Francis' wife name as Elizabeth Coldham. I have not yet entered her into this database.5 Francis and Mary may have had numerous children but I only know the name of one child, Mary.2
          Francis and Mary immigrated on 26 June 1637 to the American Colonies, with Reverend Peter Prudden's group from Yorkshire, England. Rev. Prudden preached in Hertfordshire, England until 1637. That was when he was driven out by persecution. He and, I presume, his group arrived in Boston and traveled to New Haven, Connecticut.6 Francis and Mary moved to New Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut.7 In 1639, Francis was living in Wethersfield, Hartford County, Connecticut.8,9 He was a sea captain.8 Sometime before 1658, Francis and family moved to Branford Connecticut. They later ended up in New Haven, Connecticut.10
          Francis died on 3 February 1666/67 in Milford, New Haven County, Connecticut. The cause of death was drowning.2,11 He was about 61 years old. He left a will on 28 January 1666.8 He has also been reported as dying on 27 July 1667 in Charlestown, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.12
