from Genealogical Notes of Barnstable Families, Volume 2 by Amos Otis

John Scudder, the common ancestor of those of the name in Barnstable, was born in England, in 1619, came from London to America, in 1685, and located first in Charlestown where he was admitted a freeman in 1638. The next year he removed to Barnstable, where he was again admitted a freeman, in 1654, and continued to reside there until his death, in 1689. His wife, Hannah, survived him.

His sister, Elizabeth, removed from Boston to Barnstahle, in 1644, and the same year married Samuel Lothrop, son of the Rev. John, at the father's house. John Scudder's lot and house were near the house of the late Joshua Thayer.
