JA's name appears at Ipswich in 1637. He was a soldier in the Pequot war. He was thought by many to have been a nephew of Capt. Robert Andrews, master of the ship Angel Gabriel (wrecked off Pemaquid in 1635) and later an innkeeper at Ipswich - however, no record exists of this relationship.
JA was a house carpenter and farmer and lived in that part of Ipswich that in 1679 was organized as Chebacco Parish and that in 1819 was icluded as the town of Essex, Mass. In 1687 he resisted the tax of Sir Edmond Andros and was the chariman of the Selectmen at the time that he was arrested, brought before the court at Boston and tried. During the witchcraft delusion, JA and his sons were among those who signed the petition to save John Proctor and his wife (unsuccessfully).
