Provided, that ifques and the Cutters at the Medford line were the only intermediate dwellers on the line. The Ursuline Convent grounds bordered it, but had their outlet on the Winter Hill road, and so would have no occasion to patronize the turnpike, while the original outlet of the Ten Hills farm was by way of Temple street to Winter Hill road.

n) Story. He was nephew of the Hon. Joseph Story, justice of the supreme court of the United States, grandson of Dr. Elisha Story, who was a surgeon in the Revolutionary War, a member of the Sons of Liberty, and of the Tea Party, and was one of the patriots who captured the British cannon on Boston Common, one of which is now in Bunker Hill monument.

heir cattle should be pastured outside the neck upon the main land, and they chose for grazing grounds lands which are now a large part of the city of Somerville. This territory belonged to the town. It is variously spoken of in the old records as the main, the Cow commones, the Stinted Pasture, the Stinted Common, and the land without the neck, meaning the land beyond the neck. This tract embraced what is now East Somerville, Prospect, Central, and Spring hills, the southerly slope of Winter hill, and a considerable portion of West Somerville, its boundaries not being very clearly defined at that time. The dividing of this common ground among the citizens, or stinting of the pasture, as they termed it, received attention as early as 1635—a committee being then appointed to consider the matter. At a town meeting held February 6, 1636 (27th 1637 n. s.) four of the inhabitants, viz., William Brackenbury, Ezekial Richeson, Thomas Ewar, and Ralph Sprague, were chosen to assist the
s to the then West Cambridge, now Arlington. line at Alewife brook. Commencing on the left-hand side at the Charlestown line, pasture land of the heirs of Major Timothy Walker had a frontage on Broadway to the land and house of Ebenezer F. Cutter. Near to it and beyond was the house of Fitch Cutter. These two houses were long ago replaced by more modern structures. On what is now Franklin street, then a rangeway, stood a small, one-story schoolhouse, which was afterwards removed to Winter Hill, and is still standing. At the corners of Cross street, then a rangeway, and called Three-Pole lane, stood two small wooden houses owned and occupied by members of the Tufts family. The houses were taken down long ago. Beyond this there was no building till Walnut street,—another rangeway,—was crossed. On the upper corner was a blacksmith shop, not now standing. Then dame two houses owned, and one of them occupied at about this time, by Albert Kenneson; They are still standing. The
