As to the strangers who are mentioned on our records, I find that Adrian Lubert Andriesse, of Batavia, was born in Boston, Feb. 9, 1799, and baptized at Medford, July 7, 1805. Charles Dabney's child, which Mr. Albree had to nurse, was baptized July 4, 1742, and named Charles.

Of those not of American birth or parentage, I find, besides the slaves and their children, that Jacob Auld, one of the “Scotch-Irish,” had, by wife Ann, a daughter, Margaret, born Mar. 19, 1750.

There seems to have been some Irish families as early as 1745; but these are named in the foregoing list.

There remains one class of unwilling settlers in our town,--the Acadians; or French Neutrals, as they are called on our records. Of these exiles from Grand Pre, three are mentioned on the records, as follows:--

Eunice, wife of John Degrusha, was bapt. Feb. 12, 1744.

John Le Bosquet, and Sarah, his wife, had--

Joseph, b. Jan. 12, 1781.

Rebecca, b. Jan. 19, 1783.

John Tebodo had, by Ann his wife,--

Ann, b. July 4, 1757.

Elizabeth, b. Nov. 1, 1759.

Joseph, b. Feb. 24, 1762.

The name of Le Bosquet, preserved in recollection by the Le Bosquet House, has been corrupted into Burkit.

Of the others, I know not whether they removed from town, or whether any descendants yet remain.
