f the conditions of the sale was that the grantees should forever maintain and keep in repair the southerly half of Mistick bridge and the causey adjoining. The records of the County Court say that March 15, 1736, the towns of Medford, Charlestown, Woburn, Reading and Malden by their respective agents appear in Court, to answer to their presentment for not repairing Mistick bridge, and the said towns plead not guilty, and move to be tried by the Court.

No doubt he lived in the old house we are now considering. Mr. Wyman in his History of Charlestown Estates says that Thomas Marrable lived at Usher's farm. Such was p
