, 1638, or earlier, brother of Ezekiel
, had a homestead in the Highfield.
He also removed to Woburn
, 1646, bought of William Roberts
, ‘of wapping in ould England
A house and Land,’ ten acres in Gibbonsfield.
He had no issue here, and in 1657 sold the estate to Henry Harbard
, 1649, had a house and land ‘without the Neck,’ but whether on the Somerville or Charlestown
side of the line is uncertain; but he left no descendants here.
Francis Grissell, or Griswold
, 1649, had a dwelling, house and three-fourths of an acre of land at the West End
, which he bought of Richard Wilson
Descendants are here through his daughter Hannah, who married John Kent
, and of them, more anon.
Henry Harbour, or Harbard
, 1657, had a house and ten acres of land in Gibbons-field, which he bought of William Kilcop
His first wife was the widow of Richard Miller
, and, having no issue himself, left a large part of his property to her descendants.
, 1658, perhaps lived at the West End
, as he married, when about the age of sixty, Mary Griswold
, widow of Francis, and after about twenty years removed to Dedham
, leaving no issue.
It is not always easy to decide, when a person's dwelling house in the olden time was said to be in the Highfield or on the Road
, on which side of the Charlestown
boundary line he resided; but it is believed that the foregoing is as nearly correct as can now be told.
[To be concluded.]
