Providing his fishermen with vessels as fast as possible must have made Medford a place of brisk trade and commercial consequence. These first movements of Mr. Cradock here were in keeping with his expansive mind and great wealth. We have proof of his wide enterprise in the following record: Feb. 1, 1634: Mr. Cradock's house at Marblehead was burnt down about midnight before, there being in it Mr. Allerton and many fishermen, whom he employed that season. Mr. Allerton fished with eight boats. Jossylyn speaks of Mr. Cradock's plantation, in 1638, on the west of Mystick River, where he has impaled a park; unquestionably the first park for deer impaled in this country. In 1630, Mr. Cradock provides a man (Richard Waterman), whose chief employment, he says to his men at Medford, will be to get you good venison. The Compan

ord of tax; in 1642, £ 10; in 1643, £ 7. Winthrop tells us, that,-- Of a tax of £ 1,500, levied by the General Court in 1637, the proportion paid by Medford was £ 52. 10s.; by Boston, £ 233. 10s.; Ipswich, £ 180; Salem, £ 170. 10s.; Dorchester, £ 140; Charles-town, £ 138; Roxbury, £ 115; Watertown, £ 110; Newton, £ 106; Lynn, £ 105. Mr. Savage says of this time (1637), Property and numbers, in a very short period, appear to have been very unequally distributed between Medford and Marblehead. The diversity in the several years was owing to accidental occurrences, such as supporting the expedition against the Pequods; also for service-money, to prevent the effort in England to withdraw the charter of Massachusetts, and to liquidate charges in London.
