- The following notes all come from 
- John received his education at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge and an apprenticeship with the chartered Fellows of Surgeons in Monkwell Street, London. He was a contemporary of John Milton (Christ's), Oliver Cromwell (Sidney Sussex) and Rev. Roger Williams (Pembroke) while at Cambridge. On 6 April 1635, John and Joan and their kids sailed to Boston to join Rev. Roger Williams in Salem who had sailed there 4 year prior from England. In September 1637, John was imprisoned and fined 20 pounds for speaking disrespectfully of Salem magistrates and exiled on 12 March 1638. In October of the same year, Roger Williams deeded John land at Providence, and was one of the original 12 members of the first Baptist church in North America. On 12 January 1643, he and 10 others bought Shawomet from the Narragansett chief, Miantonomi, and established the colony Warwick.
- Burke's General Armory (1884) mentions John Green's herald: “Greene (New England) descended from John Greene, a descendant of the Greenes of county Northampton, who emigrated to New England in 1635; was a companion of Roger Williams, and a party to the Providence Purchase from the Indians...(Arms) Azure, three bucks trippant, or. Crest, a buck's head, or”. Kirkconnell then states "The Northampton family of Greens, to which Burke's Armory assigns the earlier source of John Greene..., goes back to at least Sir Henry de Greene, Bart., who was lord chief justice of England in the reign of Edward III".
