    Notes 
    • From Temple’s History of Framingham:
      John Bent bought in 1662 from Henry Rice land on the west side Chchituate brook, and build a house a short distance southeast of the Albert G. Gibbs house; and 16 Apr 1683 bought 60 acres of Gookin & How, adjoinging his first purchase. Probably he was the fourth man to build on Framingham land.

      From Allen H. Bent’s article “The Bent Family”:
      “John Bent bought in 1662 land on the west side of the old Connecticut Path, in what is now the town of Framingham. The first petition for the incorporation of this township was headed by Corporal John Bent, who was chosen one of the tythingmen at the second town meeting in 1701.” [2, 3]
