Two brothers, John and Alexander Dennett came from England to Portsmouth between 1660 and 1670. John Dennett died 5 May 1709 at age 63. Buried at Pt. of Groves (carpenter). Wife's name was Amy.

New Eng. Hist. and Gen. Reg. vol 33 p. 109 Genealogies in Preparation: Dennett-by William H. Dennett, 260 Wash. St. Boston, Mass.:

There are two branches of this family descended from Alexander and John, who appear to have settled at Portsmouth. ---Alexander died at New Castle in 1698 and John at Portsmouth in 1709. The first of the names born in America was at Portsmouth in 1675. A third Dennett (Thomas) emigrated as late as 1715 to Philadelphia.


DOB reported by Roxie HOLLAND-MORITZ to be 1615.
Email from Ken Kyle (my reference EMAIL7) dated 6/22/2000. Ken states Alexander was in Dorchester, MA in 1625, then went to Portsmouth possibly as early as 1639.
Email from Dave Best lists Alexander's birth year as 1634, death year as 1698 and marriage year as 1675.
