[p. 42] on the northerly boundary was the way to John Albree's farm and mill. In the year 1720 John Albree purchased of Percival Hall the following described estate, ‘Thirty-two acres of land with house and other buildings bounded westerly on land formerly of Deacon John Willis; north on woodland laid out to Major Jonathan Wade's heirs; east on land of John Bradshaw; south on land of Ebenezer Nutting, excepting one-fourth of Mill.’ This estate comprises a considerable portion of the ‘Lawrence farm’ being that portion upon which the farmhouse and other buildings connected therewith are located. Marble, or Meeting-house brook runs through the southerly portion of the estate, and the mill of John Albree, weaver, must have been located upon this brook near the location of North Winthrop street (formerly Purchase street).
