notomy road, so across Menotomy fields, over the Ware, through Medford, to the place called Mr. Convers Mills in Woburn, the Court appointed a committee to enquire into the convenience of the Highway and whether it is needful. . . . July 8, 1709, the committee report that having visited the road leading from Menotomy to Convers Mill in the township of Woburn, both in the Ancient road where Wheeler his mill formerly stood, and also the road leading through Adams his gate, leading by Mr. Jonathan Dunster over Mistick River, at a place commonly called the Wears. And we do judge it most convenient for the publick and least prejudicial to any private person, that said ancient road leading by said mill, cannot reasonably be made passable, but that the road leading from Adams his gate, is the most advantagious for the publick and least prejudicial to any particular person. And that the said road should be continued as it is now improved, allowing three rods in width from said gate to the
oseph afterward came into the possession of the whole estate. These deeds contain the first reference to lands on the north side of the river as being connected with the mill on the Charlestown side. In the year 1710 Joseph Prout sold to Jonathan Dunster mill, mill yard, buildings and orchard one acre. Also one and three-fourths acres of meadow land on the north side of the river at the end of the mill dam. Also one and one-half acres of upland on the north side of the river at the end of tas above referred to, was built sometime previous to the year 1709, especially as the mills on the Menotomy side of the river were out of use, according to the report of the committee above quoted. The estate remained in the possession of Jonathan Dunster until his death in the year 1742, when it was divided among his heirs, his daughter Elizabeth, wife of Captain Philip Carteret, receiving the westerly portion of the Medford lands. In the year 1767 Mrs. Carteret deeded all her estate in Med
oughton mill on the Charlestown side of the river. In the year 1711 Joseph Prout sold to Jonathan Dunster, mill, mill-yard, buildings and Orchard one Acre also one and one-half acres of upland on ts is correct, it shows that while in all probability Joseph Prout built the dam, or allowed Jonathan Dunster to build it, Mr. Dunster must have the credit of building a new mill where those remains weMr. Dunster must have the credit of building a new mill where those remains were found on this land. It is to be noted that Broughton's mill was built before he received a deed of the land from Henry Dunster. In the year 1822, Moses Robbins, a descendant of Jonathan DunsteJonathan Dunster, deeded to Cyrus Cutter one acre of marsh land, bounded southwest on Mystic river, northeast on Deacon John Larkin, southeast on James Cutter, together with all the mill privileges if there be any b owned the other part of the acre and three-fourths of marsh land that Joseph Prout sold to Jonathan Dunster. Mr. Brooks says, in writing of a mill a short distance below Wear bridge, the place is
years after the petition we have quoted, as shown by the following, which is a copy of the deed of Joseph Prout to Jonathan Dunster referred to by Mr. Hooper. Middlesex Registry, Book 15, page 201. All that his millstead lying and being on Mrchard within the bounds of Charlestowne containing one acre more or less bounding easterly, south, and westerly by said Dunster's lands and northerly on the river. Also one acre and three quarters of Medow Land belonging thereto be it more or leton millstead must have been decadent. By acquiring of Prout the acre and three quarters of meadow land in Medford, Jonathan Dunster, who lived opposite, by building a mill on this suitable place in Medford could supply the needs of Medford people appeal. At an interview, he furnished us the following from the Middlesex Court File of June, 1679, in case of Prout vs. Dunster, et al.: I Thomas Gleison aged abt. 66: years do testifie yt when I was tenant to Mr Henr Dunster wch is now nee
