e to manhood in our vicinity, and who retained a property interest here during his long lifetime are certainly interesting. For instance, note boating, which shows that the river was a highway in earlier days. We read that when a Medford minister [1847] moved away from the pillared house on South street he did so by a vessel that came up to the wharf before his house. Probably the last such boating was in 1874, when lumber for three houses now standing on Boston avenue was brought from East Boston up the river and unloaded at Auburn street (of this we speak from personal observation). Again note,David an Indian, his stonelayer, and Primus, evidently a free negro. Note that the parson spent a week at his farm in January, 1739—going on Monday, preaching on Sunday in the meeting house on the hill in Charlestown (four miles from his farm) on Sunday, the 8th, and returning to Weymouth on the following Tuesday. No steam or electric cars then, and little wonder he needed a new chaise in
interest is revived by examination of original documents in the Massachusetts Archives, of which the following is copy: To the Honble Lt. Governer & Council & Representatives in Genl Court Afsembled The Humble petition of the Inhabitants of the Towne of Medford Showeth That Whereas Your Petitioners have hitherunto been necefsitated for want of a Grist mill within the sd Towne to carry their Corne to be ground as far as Charlestowne or Watertowne and sometimes to Boston and Noddles Island, Whereby many times before they can get their meal home, it costs them as much as the Corne was worth. And Whereas there is a very Suitable place upon the River A little above Mistick Bridge where A Mill may be Erected to the Easg of your Petitioners And Advantage And Convenience of places Adjacent And without damage to the Passage of Boats Timber Rafts &c Wherefore yor most humble Petitioners Prav this Honble Court to to grant them the Privilege of Setting up A Mill on the River in the
cally the same spot at which the first vessel ever built in Massachusetts was launched, nearly 300 years ago, the four-masted schooner Tremont, the second vessel ever built in Somerville, took her initial dip into the waters of the Mystic yesterday afternoon at 3.11 from the Mystic River Ship Company yards, near Wellington Bridge. Five thousand people assembled to watch the schooner slide gracefully into the water, where she was met by two tug-boats, which towed her to Barrett wharf in East Boston. A thousand children from the schools of Somerville and Medford, released from their classes early to attend the launching, set up a great cheer as the vessel took the water. Miss Annie Ferrullo, 7-year old daughter of Generose Ferrullo, one of the contractors, of Medford Hillside, broke a bottle of Italian wine over the bow and christened the schooner Tremont. The vessel is named after the Tremont Trust Company. The 1500— ton Tremont is valued at $200,000. As the date of the abo
ce of any such votes we may rest assured that no mill was built by the town. Broughton's mill must then (1698) have been out of repair and unable to serve Medford people or they would not have complained of being obliged to travel as far as Noddle's Island (East Boston) to be served. This petition affected the interests of Mr. Joseph Prout, owning as he did the Broughton mill, where, as he said, the public had been served for about thirty or forty years, and in all probability it moved him toEast Boston) to be served. This petition affected the interests of Mr. Joseph Prout, owning as he did the Broughton mill, where, as he said, the public had been served for about thirty or forty years, and in all probability it moved him to take action to supply the wants of the Medford people by putting in repair the old Broughton 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 the north side of the river at the end of the old dam. In the same conveyance is named one and three-fourths acres of meadow land on the north side of the river at the end of the mill dam. It is beyond a doubt th
