Qussuckquansh, the sachem of the Totoket band of the Quinnipiac in present day Branford, Connecticut, was a member of an influential family. He served as councilor to his nephew Momauguin (sachem of the Quinnipiac at New Haven) and his niece Shaumpishuh (sachem of the Menunkatuck at Guilford, Connecticut. He was elderly in 1638, and it is uncertain when he died. He was succeeded by Wampom as sachem. Menta, The Quinnipiac, 19, 53, 55, 85, 93-94
Quibus, presumably a Quinnipiac, lived in Branford, Connecticut perhaps as early as 1680. He was violently assaulted by another Quinnipiac, John Jeffrey, in 1704 and left for dead. As no case for murder was subsequently brought against Jeffrey, Quibus apparently survived his wounds.
John Jeffrey was the son of the Totoket leader Wayawousit (Jeffrey) of Branford, Connecticut. Not much is known about John Jeffrey other than his troubles with English authorities. In 1703 and 1704, authorities prosecuted him for assaults on a number of Indian people and threatening to kill Englishmen. In each case he was found guilty and ordered to pay a heavy fine, the payment of which required selling tribal land.
Nawattokis (alias Richard, later “Old Richard”) was a Totoket Quinnipiac who lived in Branford, Connecticut. While his age is unknown, he was considered elderly in 1717. Called “Richard” by the English, Nawattokis had at least one son, Mannapollet, who was called “Young Richard.” Both served on the tribal council of Wompon, as their names appear in an agreement with Branford officials in 1686. In 1703, Nawattokis was seriously wounded in an attack by John Jeffrey, the son of Wayawousit. He apparently survived his injuries, for in 1717, he and Mannapollet sold eight acres of land in Ind
