The corps which Captain Isaac Hall commanded was made up of men from Medford, Charlestown, Woburn, Malden, Cambridge, and Stoneham, and were called the eight months men.

Chapter 9: public buildings. First meeting-house. First meeting-house, 1696. during the first years of their residence in Medford, our pious ancestors were not sufficiently numerous and rich to support a minister of the gospel; hence they joined the churches of Cambridge, Charlestown, Watertown, Woburn, and Malden. That they had preaching in the town at funerals and baptisms, is most probable; but the loss of our earliest records prevents our stating any specific action on the subject till about 1690, when the desire to build a meeting-house became strong and effectual. They worshipped in private rooms; and we find a vote of the town to pay Thomas Willis thirty shillings for the use of his rooms for one year. January 17, 1693, we find the following record:-- At a general town-meeting of the inhabitants of Medford, being fifteen days warned, voted that there shall be a meeting-house erected, to be finished the first of October following, on the land of Mr. Thomas

Whereas the fishery in Mystic River, in the county of Middle-sex, if properly regulated, will be of great public utility, as it serves to promote the codeserved, &c. The act provides that each of the three towns is empowered to choose a committee for the preservation of fish, whose duty it shall be to keep out of the river all obstructions to the free ingress of the fish. The act grants to Cambridge the right to fish, within the limits of that town, on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday; and to Charlestown and Medford the right of fishing, within the limits of those towns, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday,--from the first of March to the last day

Redress by law was vainly attempted by the master. The case was tried, first at Cambridge, in the Court of Common Pleas, and then by appeal, at Concord; large numbers of witnesses being summoned from Medford. Caesar worked at his trade in Medford several years with great approbation, and afterwards removed to Woburn, where he marri to prevent any person from coming into the town that may be suspicious of burden or damage to said town. This vote of Medford looked at a case then existing. April 1, 1685, the selectmen protest as follows:-- Whereas William Burges, of Cambridge, hath lately intruded himself, with his family, into the town of Meadford, contrary to law, without the approbation of the town or townsmen, and he having been warned to be gone, and yet continues in said town without liberty, we, as selectmen,
appointed a committee to lay out a road from Cambridge to Woburn. 1643.--Middlesex was the firstis wife, dwelling near Meadford, coming from Cambridge, where they had spent their sabbath, and beithe council concerning the question, whether Cambridge or Charlestown should be the shire-town of Maring.
