Notes for Captain John HOMER
From Brief Account of the Family Homer or de Homere of Ettingshall, Co. Stafford, Eng. and Boston Mass. by Benjamin Dixon Homer, 1889.
Captain John Homer, eldest son of Edward Homer (II) [eldest surviving son] of Ettingshall who was baptized March 20, 1665, and who appears to have resigned his right of succession to his younger brother, probably however for an equivalent, as he was owner or part owner of the vessel he commanded.
The term “Captain” by which he is called, is used throughout to distinguish this John as the founder of the American branch.

Captain John Homer emigrated to Boston, circa 1690, and married July 13, 1693 Margery Stevens. They had issue six sons and two daughters.
