I believe that John's father was Thomas Maxwell, born 1666 in Kirkconnell, Scotland. He went to Ireland in support of James II in the Irish Rebellion and capitulated in Tyrone, Ireland in 1691 Some researchers have connected him on back into the Maxwell line in the Scottish peerage, but I cannot make the same connection that they did. I have not worked hard to either prove or disprove it. We know that Thomas came to America with son John: in Orange County VA Court Order Book in 1770 you can find record or their naturalization hearing (check on World Connect).
