Notes:
John's father, who was born in 1618 and died in 1686, was a prominent Quaker, who accompanied George Fox, William Penn and his son's wife's father, William Talcott, on an organising trip to Holland in 1677. John (1618-1686) was also the son of a John Furly (c.1590-1673) who was Alderman of Colchester in 1637 and Mayor in 1650, so we see some references to John (1616-1686) as "junior" (before the death of his father in 1673), and sometimes as "senior", when his son, John (1644 - ? ) is referred to as "junior".

John (1644 - ? ) was an executor of the will of Steven Crisp, who refers to him as a cousin (Steven Crisp and his correspondents p76) dated 23 May 1693:
I do nominate, constitute, and appoint my loving cozens, Sol. Freemantel, John Furly, and Richard Waller, all of Colchester, to be my exors of this my last will and testament, and doe give them five pound apeece.
