Remington had a son, John, who was a carpenter and a proprietor at Rowley, 1652, and had a very large family. It is sometimes difficult to separate on the records the two sets of children, and the dates of their respective births, especially as some of the Christian names are the same in each family. Lieut. John Remington died June 8, 1667, and administration on his estate was granted to his son Jonathan, who resided at Cambridge, and to John Stedman.

Jonathan2 Remington, the son of Lieut. John Remington, was born at Newbury, Mass., Feb. 12, 1639; settled at Cambridge and married Martha Belcher, daughter of Andrew Belcher, July 13, 1664. He was quite prominent in public life and especially in military affairs. He was in command of a military company during the winter and spring 1675-6, and was very active in the later Indian War in 1689 at Groton, and in 1691 at Wells, and in the Eastern parts. He served with the Cambridge men under Capt. Davenport in the Narraganset Campaign, King Philip's War, and was in the great Swamp Fight where King Philip was killed. In the winter following, he was active in the command and supply of some of the garrisons in the interior towns. (See New Eng. Hist. & Gen. Register, Vol. 42, p. 96, and Vol. 8, pp. 317-320.) From 1682 until his death on April 21, 1700, he was the proprietor of the original "Blue Anchor Tavern" at Cambridge. He was Selectman, Town Clerk and Treasurer. He left a large family among whom was a son Jonathan, born July 27, 1677, graduated from Harvard 1696, and was a professor there in 1703-1707. (New Eng. Hist. & Gen. Register, Vol. 46, pp. 5-6, Vol. 8, pp. 317-320.) He was afterward Judge of the Probate Court for a period of more than forty years and was very highly esteemed for his learning, ability and high character. Up to the year 1798, there had been five of the Remington family graduated at Harvard and one at Yale.
