John Waterbury was born in Sudbury, England and came in America in 1629. He was an innkeeper in Watertown, MA in 1639. He was in Stamford by 1650. He lived in a house on the south side of North Street, which is now Broad Street, and moved into Thomas Morehouse' home on the east side of South Street, which is now Atlantic Street. He was married to a woman named Rose, whose surname is shown as Lockwood in many sources. Paul Prindle, in his book, "Ancestry of Elizabeth Barrett Gillespie," offers a convincing argument on pages 496-498 that Rose was not a Lockwood, but rather a daughter of Gregory and Achsa Taylor.
