there may have been 2 John Hollisters; 1- at Weymouth, Mass and 1- at Wethersfield.
"say that he was at Weymouth, Mass., in 1643, and represented that town in the Massachusetts legislature in 1644." the town clerk of Weymouth on Feb 9, 1886 writes also: "I find on examining the records of this town the name of John Hollister signed as one of the 'townsmen' Nov. 20th, 1645, Feb. 9th 1645, ... April 17th, 1646'
DWS: now Case presents evidence of a different John Hollister at Wethersfield at the same time...
"According to Trumbull's 'Colonial Records of Connecticut', John Hollister was in Wethersfield March 2, 1642, in April 1645, and in June 1646. Goodwin says he was made a freeman there in May, 1643.
From these facts it would appear that either there were two John Hollisters in New England at the same time, or that one owned property in both towns, and while holding office in Wethersfield was regarded as a "Townsman" in Weymouth.
I am inclined to the opinion that there were two John Hollisters, and that the one in Weymouth afterward returned to England, still holding his lands in Weymouth.
Wm. H. Upton of Walla Walla. Washington Territory, published in the January (1886) number of the "N.-E. Historical and Genealogical Register." page 62, an abstract of the will of John Hollister of Bristol, England, proved Dec. 5, 1690, in which he mentions land leased to Capt William Torrey and his son, Mr. Samuel Torrey, living in Weymouth, Mass. This John Hollister apparently had no children, except perhaps a daughter Elizabeth, who was probably his step-daughter, as he calls her his daughter in one place and daughter-in-law in another. He mentions cousin John Hollister, son of Abel, late of Yeate, in Gloucestershire, Eng.. deceased; cousin Samuel Hollister of Burrington, Somerset; cousin Abel Hollisters six sons; and appoints his cousin Philip Hollister sole executor.

"THE HOLLISTER FAMILY. THE AMERICAN HOLLISTERS. LIEUT. JOHN HOLLISTER.
John1 Hollister, the ancestor of the American family of that name, is said to have been born in England in 1612, and to have emigrated to America about 1642. The compiler has sought in vain for some conclusive authority for these two statements. Nor can the place of his birth be positively given, though it is supposed he sailed from Bristol, England.
That he was of a good family and educated is almost certain, as he immediately became one of the most prominent and influential men of Wethersfield and the Connecticut Colony. His name first appears in the annals of that colony as juror of the particular court held March 2 1642. He was admitted freeman in 1643; was a deputy in 1644, again in April, 1645, and represented the town of Wethersfield many times thereafter until 1656. His name appears also as a juror in June, 1646. Mr. Hollister, with Thos. Coleman and Nathaniel Dickerson were appointed for Wethersfield, Oct. 3, 1654, to join with the deputy governor to press men at Wethersfield for an expedition (probably against the Indians). Mr. Hollister and others were appointed by the general court, February, 1656, to give "the best and safe advice to the Indians, if they agreed to meet and should crave their advice."
His name first appears as Lieut. Hollister in March, 1658-9, when he applied to the general court as to the charges of the church at Wethersfield against him for which he had been excommunicated. The following account of that unfortunate quarrel is taken from Hollister's "History of Connecticut:" .......
pg 24...
Lieut. John1 Hollister married Joanna, daughter of Hon. Richard Treat, Sr., and his first wife Joanna. She survived him, and is mentioned in his will... He died at Wethersfield in April, 1665. His widow died in October, 1694."

"(3.) John2 Hollister (John1).
John2 son of Lieut John1 Hollister and Joanna Treat, was born in Wethersfield probably, about 1644. He married Sarah Goodrich, Nov. 20, 1667. She was a daughter of William Goodrich and Sarah Marvin, and died in Glastonbury, Conn., in 1700.
Edwin Hubbard, the veteran genealogist, now engaged upon a genealogy of the Goodrich family, in a personal communication to the compiler of this work, says that he has conclusively established that John and William Goodrich of Wethersfield were sons of William Goodrich, Sr., of Watertown, Mass. (See Bond's 'Watertown,' page 777.) This fact will probably be shown in Hubbard's 'Goodrich Memorial,' Part III. Ensign William Goodrich married Sarah, daughter of Matthew Marvin of Hartford, Oct. 4, 1648. Mr. Goodrich died in Wethersfield in 1676, and his widow Sarah married Capt William Curtis, and died in Stratford, Conn., in 1702.
Matthew Marvin came to America from London in the ship 'Increase', in 1635. He was then 35 years of age, and brought with him his wife Elizabeth, aged 31, and children: Elizabeth, 11; Matthew, 8; Mary, 6; Sarah, 3; and"

"Hannah. 6 months. He was an original proprietor of Hartford in 1638, and was one of the original grantees of Norwalk, and settled there in 1653. He was a representative the next year.
John Hollister, Jr., was one of the principal men of Glastonbury, where he died Nov. 24, 1711. He seemed to possess the beligerant spirit of his father, and was for some years engaged in the noted lawsuit between Hollister and Bulkley over the boundary line of certain lands, which trial finally resulted in a resurvey of all the "lots" from the Hartford line to Nayaug by order of the general court, and which has been preserved in the archives of the State. The papers preserved relative to this case are of importance to the history of the town. This was in 1684-85, (See Chapin's 'Glastonbury for Two Hundred Years,' pages 181, 182, 183.) Children:
