  • Notes 
    • Stukely Westcott, the founder of the family of this name in Rhode Island, was one of the twenty-nine who signed the agreement for the civil government of Providence, 27 July 1640, and was one of the original members of the First Baptist Church. Coming to the New World from the town of Yeovil in Somerset, England, he first settled in Salem in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, but difficulties with the authorities prompted him to join Roger Williams in settling on the Narragansett Bay in 1638 at a place named Providence. He remained there for a few years, but in 1648 he was recorded as an inhabitant of Warwick, probably having settled there several years earlier. He was most active in colonial affairs from 1650 to 1660 when he was a commissioner, surveyor of highways, and the keeper of a house of entertainment. His highest office held was deputy of the colony in 1671. He made his will on January 12, 1677, dying the same day with the will unsigned, leaving his affairs in limbo for the following two decades.
