2. Elizabeth _____  bur. 17 Dec. 1686 WoodmancoteJohn Denat was a member of the Hambledon Boys Cavalry Troop who fought for the Parliamentary cause duringthe Civil War.Several web sites list John and Ann as being the parents of Alexander and John of New Hampshire, however, I have been unable to locate any primary sources to document this link. Having two sons named John would not precludeour John being a son of John and Ann as it was not unusual for children of different mothers to bear the same name.

AMY ______ 
d. 5 May 1709 Portsmouth, age 63, bur. Point of Graveswill 17 Mar. 1708/9John and his brother Alexander arrived in Portsmouth from England about 1660 and was made a freeman on 15 May1670.John was a carpenter by trade and built houses, a school house and made repairs to the parsonage chimney for Joshua Moody. He was granted land next to Richard Martyn land at Boiling Rock in exchange for his services to thetown of Portsmouth. John's new land on the road to Bloody Point was called Gravelly Ridge. He built a house with a beehive chimney on the highest part of Christian Shore at the end of Prospect St. Unfortunately, this house has notrecevied much attention probably because it abuts "gasoline alley". John and his sons lumbered the Gravelly Ridgeforests in the northwest part of Portsmouth which is now were the malls are located. Just before his death on 5 May1709 John granted land to the town for a road past the Jackson House to the Piscataqua which is now Northweststreet.
 Address and Petition of the Inhabitants of Exeter, Hampton, Portsmouth, and Dover, against Cranfield-1686 To the king's most excellent Majesty:The humble address and petition of sundry of your Majesty's loyal subjects, the freeholders and inhabitants of your Majesty's Province of New Hampshire, in New England, most humbly sheweth, That you petitioner's predecessors,having, under the encouragement of your Majesty's royal ancestors, by their letters patent to the Great Council of  Plymouth, removed themselves and some of us into this remote and howling wilderness, in pursuance of the gloriousends proposed; namely, the glory of God, the enlarging his Majesty's dominions, and spreading the gospel among the heathen; and, in order thereunto, either found the lands we now possess vacuum domicilium, or purchased themof the heathen, the native proprietors of the same- or at least by their allowance, approbation of consent- have sat down in the peaceable possession of the same for the space of above fifty years; hoping that, as we had attained theends, so we should have shared in the privileges, of these royal patents above mentioned, and thereupon did themore patiently bear and cheerfully grapple with those innumerable evils and difficulties that must necessarilyaccompany the settlers of new plantations, especially in such climates as these, besides the calamities of the late Indian war, to the loss of many of our lives and the great impoverishment of the survivors. We were also further encouraged, from your Majesty's princely care in taking us, by your late commission under your Majesty'simmediate government, and appointing some among ourselves to govern us according to those methods there prescribed, being particularly bound to discountenance vice and promote virtue and good living, and to keep us in adue obedience to your Majesty's authority and continuance of our just liberties and properties, together withliberties of conscience in matters of worship, and all in order to our living in all godliness and honesty, fearing God and honoring the king, which we profess to be our desire to do. But contrariwise, partly by the unreasonable demands of our pretended proprietor, Robert Mason, Esq., and partly from sundry other reasons, that are either effects of concomitants thereof, we are in a far worse condition than anyother your Majesty's plantations, and reduced to such confusions and extremities that necessitate our humbleapplication to your Majesty, upon whose clemency and justice only, under God, we depend for our relief:Your poor, distressed and oppressed petitioners do therefore most humbly supplicate your most gracious Majestythat you will vouchsafe to give leave unto one of ourselves, Mr. Nathaniel Weare, whom we have sent for that end,to spread before your sacred Majesty, and your most honorable Privy Council, our deplorable estate, the beholding 
of which we doubt not will more compassion towards, and your Majesty's propensity to justice will incline to, theusing such means as to your wisdom shall seem best, that the oppressed may be relieved, wronged ones righted, and we, your Majesty's almost undone subjects, now prostrate at your feet, may, upon the tasting of your equity and  goodness, be raised and further engaged in all humility and thankfulness, as in duty bound evermore heartily to pray, &c... the like petition from Portsmouth, in said Province, signed by... John Dennett...
The Humble Address of the Inhabitants and Train Soldiers of the Province of New-Hampshire, February 20,1689/90:To the Honorable, the Governor and Council of their Majesties' Colony of the Massachusetts Bay, in New-England: Humbly showeth, that whereas, since the late revolution in your colony, you have exerted a power of government over their Majesties' subjects and inhabitants therein, which we are given to understand their Majesties have been graciously pleased to approve of, and impowered you to continue the same till further order; and we, who wereunder your government, having been for some time destitute of power sufficient to put ourselves into a capacity of defence against the common enemy; and having, with great expectation, awaited their Majesties' order for a settlement amongst us, which, not yet arriving, considering how liable also we are to destruction by the enemy,which of ourselves we cannot prevent, we are therefore necessitated at present to supplicate your Honors for  government and protection, as formerly, until their Majesties' pleasure shall be known concerning us: herebyobliging ourselves to a due submission thereto, and payment of our equal proportion (according to our capacity), of the charge that shall arise for the defence of the country against the common enemy; praying also that such personsmay be commissioned to command the militia as have already been or shall be chosen by the trained soldiers in therespective towns, desiring your Honors to grant us this our request, and your petitioners shall ever pray...
