John Budd is an ancestor of mine. The information that I have is this: John Budd came to America on a ship called the Swallow in 1632 from England where he was born ca. 1600. I have him listed as a Puritan who originally settled Southold, NY. He married Katherine Brown while in England and she is a descendant of Sir Anthony Browne. I am researching my ancestory and i found our family tree documented by my great grandmother in the 1960's. i hopes this helps your research as well.
