e inhabitants of Medford, but for those of the northern towns who took loads on horseback to Boston. If the earliest records of the town had been preserved, we should doubtless have found in them some notices of the Ford, and some regulations concerning it. May 3, 1642: The General Court say: It is declared by this Court, that the selected town's men have power to lay out particular and private ways concerning their own town only. The road from the landing, called No man's friend (now Mr. Lapham's ship-yard), was made by Charlestown, 1641, to their land north of Medford. The road is now called Cross and Fulton Streets. To have free access to the river, the great highway, they opened private roads for the use of owners of lands, and what were called range-ways for the free use of the public. Many of these are found in Charlestown. One of these was Cross Street; the next, west of it, was at the Ford, and the Governor Lane was a part of it; the next was by the easterly side of

They finally recommended the erection of a wooden house; and on the 2d of April, 1839, the parish passed the following vote: That the present house be taken down, and a new one built on the same spot in its stead, not to exceed in cost the sum of $12,000. The building-committee were Messrs. Samuel P. Heywood, Andrew Blanchard, jun., George W. Porter, Samuel Lapham, and Milton James, Esqrs.
