    • From The Marston Genealogy, pages 5-6:

      “Robert Marston was born in England, not far from 1683, and came to Salem. Mass., probably with William, Sr. (who is supposed to be his brother), in 1634 and went with the said William, Sr., to Newbury about 1637, thence in October, 1638, to Winnicumet with William, Sr., his three sons and twelve others from Newbury, and thirty-eight from Salem and that vicinity, who made the first organized settlement there; and this community was afterwards incorportated as the town of Hampton, in the old county of Norfolk (now obsolete), and when said county was divided to settle the boundary dispute, New Hampshire took all that part east of the Merrimack river, which included the twon of Hampton. Robert Marston died in 1643, leaving a small estate, consisting of a house and lot of seven acres lying on Robert Page; also fifteen acres of upland in the North-Field (now North Hampton), and thirty acres of upland granted Mr. Rushwood by the town; also five acres of salt-marsh on the other side of the landing place, and ten acres of salt-marsh in the Little Ox-common, which was granted Mr. Rushwood by the town, with two shars in the Ox-common and three shares in the Cow-common. His age was about sixty years.
      “It is evident from the action of the Probate Court that he left children in England, else the Marstons in America were not his near relatives. See order of the Court.
      “ORDER OF THE COURT, 23D DAY, 10TH MO., 1763
      “The Court at Salem doeth appoint John Marston and Thomas Marston as administrators unto Robert Marston, of his estate until the true heris unto the est estate, who are in England, shall either come or send to take order therein. And that ye administrators shall in the mean-tyme bind themselves, each fo the other to this Court for the well managing, as also the improvement of the said estate; and that there shall be joined with thm, for the better directing of them, as also improving of the said estate, John Saunders and Thomas Macery, both of Salisbury. The administrators are bound in ye bond of an hundred pounds, for the performing of the promises. And that ye bring in at the next Court at Ipswich, upon oath, a true inventory of the estate of the said Robert Marston, deceased.” [1]
