Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 30., The
Brooks Estates in Medford from to 1660 . (search)
Patriot's day. As the Register goes to press, another notable anniversary approaches. Our Society, by the hearty cooperation of our vigorous neighbor, will, in the large hall of the Woman's Club, on evening of April 18, visualize something of that early day which was a glorious morning for America. We are also looking forward to that Tercentenary day of Greater Boston which will be unitedly observed by Boston, Cambridge, Watertown, Somerville, Dorchester and Medford. Of course, by common consent, 1930 will be the year of observance, and much will be made of the coming of Governor John Winthrop and company, on June 17. But William Blaxton, Samuel Maverick, Thomas Walford, who preceded him in various places as actual residents, will not be forgotten, nor indeed, will Medford fail to mention that Cradock's men were here settled and at work in 1628, when the explorers came from Salem to discover Charlestown. Medford was a pioneer hereabouts.
