    Notes 
    • John “was a ship builder in Scituate from 1698 to 1709, when he removed to Marshfield and purchased land of Charles Little at Rexhame, now [1901] owned by Ray T. Ames. In 1709-10 he was chosen on a commission to divide the common and undivided lands of Marshfield. In 1724-24 he was sent as Representative to the General Court. In 1725-26 he was one of the Selectmen of Marshfield.”

      (Although some sources say John had a second wife Elizabeth who was the mother of all the children born after 1697, the vital records of Scituate which give the birth dates of those children name their parents John and Sarah, not John and Elizabeth.) [2, 3]
