    Notes 
    • From the Loring Genealogy, pages 19–20:
      Josiah remained on the Hingham homestead where his father had lived before removing to Hull; the house and lands were assigned to him in the division of the estate by the sons after their father’s death.
      He was a juror in October, 1679. Was a member of the local company of foot soldiers that year; signed several petitions regarding town matters with his neighbors.
      He died February 14, 1712-13. In his will, dated July 26, 1712, proved March 7, 1712-13, he provided comfortable maintenance for his wife; confirmed a deed of land, “which was my son Josiah's,” he had made to his son Job; gave to his daughter, Jane Gifford, and her son Josiah; and gave the residue to his son Jonathan.

      Josiah and Elizabeth resided on North St., Hingham.

      Josiah contributed £3 17s. 1d. at 1680 toward the building of the Hingham Meeting House, now known as the Old Ship Church and the oldest frame church in continuous use in the United States. [1, 2, 3]
