    Notes 
    • From Forster’s article:
      “The grave of Deacon Foster is marked by a stone rudely carved; the inscription is,—‘Here lies Dec’n Jacob Foster, who died July ye 9th 1710, in ye 75 yr of His Age.’
      “Deacon Foster lived in the first house built by his father Reginald. It stood on the south side of the Ipswich river, near the stone bridge; and on a portion of what is now the Hard Estate. The house lots as they were granted from the bridge, were given as follows:—1. to John Proctor. His house, built in 1635, yet stands; and is now [1876] owned by the venerable Capt. Samuel Baker. 2. Thomas Wells, probably a physician, as he had ‘phissic books.’ In 1677 mention is made of ‘the house that Thomas Wells built.’ 3. Samuel Younglove. The house he doubtless built was taken down in 1862. 4. The Foster lot. An old ‘Foster House’ remained on this lot till within the recollection of the present generation. Its last Foster occupant was an aged woman, known as ‘Molly Foster.’
      “The house was called in Ipswich ‘the old Foster house,’ as long as it stood. It was given by Reginald Foster at his death to Deacon Jacob, his son, and the Deacon lived in it. The deacon also owned another house, which he sold to Abraham Perkins,—son of John, and grandson of Elder John Perkins. For in the will of Hannah (Bemsley) Perkins, widow of Abraham, she bequeths the house her husband bought of ‘Deacon Foster, dec’d,’ to three of her grandsons.” [1]
