  • Notes 
    • Doane Family Association Family Chart Summary:
      John1 Doane was born in England about 1590, and died in Eastham, Massachusetts on February 21, 1684\1685. The date of his birth is from his will, which was written on May 18, 1678.

      He married Ann Surname Unknown in England. Ann was born in England, and died in Eastham before 1659. She signed a deed with John in 1648. By 1659, she was deceased because John signed a deed with Lydia, his daughter during that year.

      He was a pilgrim and a farmer. Eastham was called Nauset when John lived there.

      The Doane's are a well-organized family and has a reunion every two years. They have a historian and have published two books which are in many major libraries. The Snow, Young, Bickford, Smalley, Hopkins, and other early families have also pubished books and are well established. The Doane Family Association address is Doane College, Crete, Nebraska.1 Internet Webpage:

      A lot of research has been purchased from Genealogist in England and members have been there and done research. The family believes several things. John came over, and then Ann and their children came at another time on a different ship. Ann erkins was not John Doane?s wife. The family believes Martha was John?s sister. The family has throughly researched the Leiden Group and John Doane was not a member.
    • From WFT#1670-
      Much has been written in the A.A. Doane book about John Doane. He was likely aboard one five ships sailing to Massachusetts Bay Colony in the spring of 1629, his final destination being the Plymouth Colony. He was in business with John d of London, who represented agent James Sherley in 1641. He was chosen Deacon of the church at Plymouth in 1634 and was involved in the rewriting of the laws of the colony in 1636. John moved to Eastham on Cape Cod, around 1645.

      other from (record source unknown)...

      ...Deacon John Doane was one of the few who bore the title of "Mr." In 1633, he was on the list of Freemen. By 1632/33, he began serving on the General Court. He preferred to be a Deacon in the church, rather than an Assistant to the Governor. In 1644, Deacon John Doane was the among those leading the enterprise of new settlement in the Nauset (now Eastham) area of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
