I am seeking information on John Preston, b. in Ashford 1737. He was married to Sarah Eastman in 1759. Also, any information on his father, also a John Preston (b. 1715 in Andover, MA and married to Mary Ford) would be helpful. Thank you!

These PRESTONs descended from one Roger PRESTON who arrived in 1635 on the ship Elizabeth. After Roger passed on, his wife Martha married Nickolas HOLT. Her sons migrated to Wyndham CT. along with some of the HOLT familes. See the book FOUR GENERATIONS Population, Land, and Family in Colonial Andover, Massachusetts by Philip J. Greven, Jr. 1970 Cornall University pages 155-167.
