John Atchison is listed as an early settler of Hadley, from which Hatfield
was formed about 1665. Hadley commenced settlement in 1659.
You probably should look elsewhere than Hatfield for John Atchison's birth
in 1646 [or 1636] and Deliverance's birth.

A few rootsweb databases have John born 1636 in Suffolk England, citing a
professional researcher.
Those that have him born 1646 in Hatfield have no credible source, some
Ancestral File, some none. If born 1636 he would be married at about age 36,
which seems a little late for a first marriage, but possible.

John was killed by Indians in 1677.

Hatfield, South Hadley, Amherst and Granby, Massachusetts

According to Torrey Marriages John and Deliverance were married by 1672,
Hadley. [{Hadley Fam. 7 [Judd citation above]; Fulton Anc. 364; Fallass 175;
Sv. 1:72 [no birth data]; Springfield Fam. (ms) 18; Cary Anc. 55}]
