  • Notes 
    • Many traditions have been handed down. But Roger Eastman seems to have been the sole ancestor of the Eastmans in this country. The name has been written in some cases Easman. He sailed from Southampton, Eng., Apr, 1638, in the ship Confidence of London, John Jobson, Master; settled in Salisbury, Mass. In 1650 his minister's tax was 8s. 3d. Of his ancestry we find no account. It is believed that for political reasons his registered namd and occupation were lower than his true rank. [2]
    • From A.W.C.'s 1875 genealogy, page 239: "Roger Eastman, the founder of the family of that name in New England, came from Wales, Great Britain, in the ship "Confidence," and settled at Salisbury, MA, in 1640. He was a carpenter by trade, and was living at Haverhill, MA, in 1658-9, and employed in that business."
