er the location and plan had been reported it still took three years with eight town meetings to secure this simple wooden structure, twenty-four feet long, twenty feet wide, ten feet high, on land already owned by the town. The house was doubtless completed on time or very nearly so, because we find next to the last entry for the year in the Treasurer's Book: Pd Benj. Willis on account of the School House £ 10; and in 1733: Pd. Jona. Watson for work at School House£ 18-10s. Jacob Polly for work at School House1-15s. Sam. Francis for work at School House1-15s. The school house cost up to this time £ 32, but in 1734-5, month impossible of determination: To Cash pd to Deacn Willis for the School house materials £ 20-2s. –6d.

The entire number of persons holding slaves in the last half of the 18th century probably did not exceed thirty, the town records giving, indirectly, the names of twenty. Partial list of slaveholders: Capt. Caleb Brooks, Ebenezer Brooks, Samuel Brooks, Capt. Thomas Brooks,—Bishop,—Brown, Mary Bradshaw, Andrew Hall, Jonathan Hall, Jr., Stephen Hall, Benj.
