  • Notes 
    • Captain John Godfrey, of Newport, a mariner, who, in 1689, under the authority of the Colony of Rhode Island, was given command of an armed brigantine fitted out from that place and sent in pursuit of a French privateer which had invaded and plundered Block Island. This was presumably the John Godfrey, brother of Richard -, of Taunton, Mass., who "went to the Narragansett country" and of whom there is little record beyond the above.
