"John, the youngest son, seems to have been a favorite of both parents. He was executor of his mother's will. He went to Wroxhall in Warwickshire, where he located, becoming a near neighbor of his brother Thomas2, father of the three emigrant brothers, at Wedgnock Park. John Fyshe of Wroxhall in 1640 had money transactions with Thomas Dexter, an early settler in Lynn and Sandwich, Mass., which was settled in 1637. He had also loaned money to Rev. Ephraim Huit of the Wroxhall Church, who through persecution by the Bishop of Worchester for non-conformity, was driven from his church and from England and migrated to Hartford, Conn., where he died in 1644. The money for the payment of the debt to John Fysh of Wroxhall, 60 pounds, seems to have been turned over by the Huit Estate, and held by the Colonial Treasurer as late as 1686. As this money had not reached its proper destination, the Huit heirs claimed that it should be returned to them, but the General Court of Connecticut formally refused "because this court are informed that there is a nephew of Fish that doth demand it." A question of some interest is the identity of this nephew, who might have been William3 of Windsor or John3 of Stonington, Conn. No record of his marriage or death, or of offspring, was found."
