Because Governor Winthrop wrote, We went up Mistick river about six miles. But Winthrop did not settle in Medford but in Charlestown, on the other side of the river. However, as seen in Deputy Governor Dudley's letter (of March 28, 1631) to the Countess of Lincoln, of those coming from Salem, some found a good place upon Mistick, which we named Meadford.
