To restore order, 1710 Edward Hyde was despatched to govern the province; 1711. but he was to receive his commission as deputy from Tynte, the governor of the southern division; and, as Chap XIX.} Tyrning. But North Carolina remained as before; its burgesses, obeying the popular judgment, refused to make provision for 1711 to 1712. defending any part of their country, unless they could introduce into the government the persons most obnoxious fy was their humor. Hence the reports forwarded to England were often contradictory. This government, wrote Spotswood, in 1711, is in perfect peace and tranquillity, under a due obedience to the royal authority, and a gentlemanly conformity to the ey dislike; and the house, remaining inflexible was dissolved. The desire to conquer Canada prevailed, in the summer of 1711, to obtain a specific grant of bills of credit for £ 10,000; but no concession was made in regard to the ordinary expenses

A resolve of the commons, in the days of William and Mary, proposed to lay open the trade in negroes for the better supply of the plantations and the statute-book of England soon declared the opinion of its king and its Chap.

In June, 1712, Queen Anne, in her speech to parliament, boasts of her success in securing to Englishmen a new market for slaves in Spanish America. In 1729, George II. recommended a provision, at the national expense, for the African forts; and the recommendation was followed. At last, in 1749, to give the highest activity to the trade, every ob

But when, in 1711, New York, during the administration of Hunter, was left without a revenue, the high powers of parliament were the resource of the ministers; and they prepared a bill, reciting the neglect of the province, and imposing all the taxes which had been discontinued by its legislature.

And in 1658 Mr. Richard Russell and Thomas Lynde, were appointed to agree with Mr. Collins, to make a gate upon Mistick Bridge, to secure our commons from any stray cattle, the charges to be borne by the proprietors of the commons. In the year 1695 John Hall, Senior, was granted permission by the County Court to hang a gate at the end of his land, that he may have the benefit of the improvements thereon. And in the year 1711 John Usher be allowed to hang two gates in the roads within his farm, one on the road from Charlestown to Medford, and one on the road from Charlestown to Cambridge, for this year. Mr. John Usher owned a part of Governor Winthrop's Ten Hills farm, the same estate afterwards in the possession of Col. Isaac Royall. Colonel Royall maintained a gate across Harvard street, on the southerly limit of his farm, as late as the year 1771. It is to be remembered that the part of Medford situated

An investigation into this tradition will give us an insight into the Medford homes of two centuries ago. Brooks, in his history, used about all the existing material concerning John Albree. The first record of him is in a list of those assessed September 2, 1701, on a country rate, the amount being three shillings. His name appears on the lists each succeeding year. In 1711, he married Elizabeth Green, who was daughter of Samuel Green (John 2, Percival 1), and his wife, Elizabeth Sill, who was daughter of Joseph Sill and his wife, Jemima Belcher, the latter being the daughter of Andrew Belcher and Elizabeth Danforth. He bought first the property afterwards known as the Thatcher Magoun estate, on the banks of the Mystic, and later, selling it, acquired the estate through which Meeting House Brook runs, on which the second meeting-house was built.

On February 1, 1677, he took the oath of fidelity. In 1711 he was appointed one of a committee of three to see about a preacher. At about this time they started a contribution box in the church here and John Whitmore had charge of it. Later on he was asked to render an account of the money so received. e died in 1714. They lived in Bedford and had a large family of children. He was very active in Indian wars, and held many positions in the militia, being appointed Captain by the Earl of Belmont in 1699, Major in a regiment of horse and foot in 1711 by Governor Dudley, and is spoken of as Colonel.
