Jonathan Fish was the immigrant Puritan ancestor of a line of statesmen, leading down to Congressman Hamilton11 Fish of New York. At an early age he decided to try his fortune in the new colony of New England, and with his younger brothers, John and Nathaniel, he landed at Lynn, Mass., in 1635, at the age of 25. (See p. 320). John3 who was probably 19 at the time, cleared a farm at Sandwich, where he remained until his death in 1663, age about 47. Nathaniel, then about 17, also remained at Sandwich as a farmer. His estate was inventoried in Plymouth Probate Court Oct. 4, 1694.
