    Notes 
    • From the Briggs genealogy:
      “The Thaxters were Tories, and Mary, a woman of remarkable character, was strongly in sympathy with King George, and they had many a hot discussion. When a son was born to her in 1775 she insisted that he be named George, for her beloved King, and after much argument her husband was obliged to promise her that he should bear that name. He took the baby away to be baptized, and when he came back the child bore the name of George Washington Otis.” [3]
