- There is a strong probability that the family has its roots in
Newcastle-on-Tyne in England and that our branch of the family
descends from John Trumbull and wife Ellen. John came to America, in
1637, was at Roxbury in 1639, and at Rowley, Massachusetts, in 1640.
Wife Ann died in 1648/49. Ann Hopkinson, widow of Mighill Hopkinson,
was John's second wife and after his death in 1657, she married
Richard Swan but died shortly thereafter (1658).

I forgot one other thing. The History of Stonington, CT stated:
"His wife d. in England before he came to this country.....He m.
second wife Mrs. Ann Trumbull. She m. for her first husband Michael
Hopkinson, who buried feb 28,1648; and for her second husband, John
Trumbull in june 1650, and for her third husband, Richard Swan March 1
This affirms your research.
Pope says: "Ann, widow of John Trumble" (p 442)
