John Beecher came to New Haven, CT (then Quinnipiack) from Kent, England 1637/38. He died that winter. We present here a framework of 11 generations of his descendants; that is, generally to those persons born over 100 years ago. The focus is on Beecher lines. Some lines on the female side are truncated where they are better listed elsewhere. Included are spouses & parents of spouses only. A few connections are educated speculation. There also are a few "unconnected" lines.
