Court, to command the militia of the Colony. Except as a military man, his character does not appear to have been very reputable. In 1637 he had liberty to remove to Ipswich, but seems rather to have gone to Watertown, where he was Selectman, in 1638. He afterwards removed to Connecticut, and was killed by a Dutchman, at Stamford, in 1643. John Poole probably remained here only a few months, as he is not named in the list of proprietors, in 1633. He was of Lynn, 1638, and afterwards of Read1638, and afterwards of Reading, where he died April 1, 1667. William Spencer, uniformly styled Mr. on the court records, was one of the principal gentlemen. He was associated with Mr. Lockwood, May, 1632, to confer with the Court about raising of a public stock; was Deputy or Representative of the New Town, 1634-1637; one of the first Board of Townsmen, 1635; lieutenant of the trainband, 1637, and a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, at its organization in 1639; he probably removed to Hartford in 163

Very probably Gov. Winthrop intended that Mr. Hooker should make a personal application of his general remarks contained in a letter addressed to him as early as 1638: If you could show us the men that reproached you, we should teach them better manners than to speak evil of this good land God hath brought us to, and to discourae up to the time of his removal in the spring of 1637;—the latter was elected Assistant in 1636, at the first election after his arrival, and reelected in 1637 and 1638. One was colonel, and the other lieutenant-colonel, of the military force. Both were conspicuous for moral excellence and mental ability, and each bore a large shby this most precious servant of Jesus Christ, and bitterly lamented his early death; This loss was partially repaired by the accession of Herbert Pelham, Esq., in 1638 or 1639. He married the widow of Mr. Harlakenden, and was successively Treasurer of Harvard College, 1643, Assistant, 1645-49, and Commissioner of the United Colo
ht mile line were soon afterwards granted by the town; among which grants was one to Richard Harlakenden of six hundred acres of upland and meadow, at the place called Vine Brook, in the midway between Newtowne and Concord, on certain conditions, Jan. 2, 1636-7. This tract of land was in the central portion of the present town of Lexington. The conditions of the grant not being performed by Richard Harlakenden, the land was subsequently granted to his brother, Roger Harlakenden, who died in 1638. Herbert Pelham married the widow of Harlakenden, and became the owner of his real estate; he bequeathed this property to his son Edward Pelham, who conveyed by deeds, Oct. 28, 1693, to Benjamin Muzzey 206 acres in Cambridge, towards Concord, being a part of Mr. Pelham's farm, and to John Poulter 212 acres of the same farm. Precisely when the first houses were erected and actual settlements commenced at the Farms, so called, does not appear on record; but as early as 1682, about thirty fami
reet; also on the northerly side of Main Street, from a point about two hundred feet westerly from Remington Street to a point about midway between Hancock and Lee streets. The Judge had therefore a strong personal interest in the improvement of this part of the town. Of the large lots lying eastwardly from small lot hill, the first two were owned by Governor Thomas Dudley and his son Samuel Dudley. When Dudley left Cambridge his real estate was purchased by Roger Harlakenden, who died in 1638, and his widow married Herbert Pelham. In 1642, Pelham appears to have owned the above mentioned lots, together with the next two, formerly owned by Richard Goodman and William Westwood; the whole containing 118 acres, After 1719, Mr. Pelham's great lot is generally described as containing 104 acres. and extending from Main Street to Somerville line. Pelham also became the owner of the real estate of Simon Bradstreet, one portion of which was a lot of upland and marsh, long known as Pelh
