The Maxson Family Records by Walter LeRoy Brown, pub 1954, has a Joseph Maxson and his wife Bethia (Maxson) Maxson sailing to Shrewsbury, NJ from Westerly, RI in 1742. They both died 1747. A son Joseph, b. 1723 m. Elizabeth _____. They lived at Navasink, NJ. Children: Capt. John b. 1761, Lydia, Hannah Amy. I found no Britton. But then, when this was written, all records were gathered by correspondence or personal visits and were not always reliable. LDS records are entered at the whim of amateur genealogists and aren't always accurate, either.
