    Notes:

    Samuel, of Haverhill, lived in the West Parish, and his house stood on the spot where the West Parish Church now (1889) stands. Chase, in his History of Haverhill, says: "February 22, 1698, this Samuel Ladd, with his son Daniel, and Jonathan Haynes, with his son Joseph, who lived in the western part of the town, had started that morning with their teams, consisting of a yoke of oxen and a horse each, to bring home some hay which had been cut and stacked the preceding summer in their meadow in the extreme western part of the town. While they were slowly returning, little dreaming of present danger, they suddenly found themselves between two files of Indians, who had concealed themselves in the bushes on each side of their path. There were 7 of them on each side, with guns, presented and cocked, and the fathers seeing that it was impossible to escape begged for 'quarter.' To this the Indians replied' boon quarter, boon quarter.' (good quarter.) Young Ladd, who did not relish the idea of being quietly taken prisoner, told his father that he would mount the horse and endeavor to escape. But the old man forbade him to make the attempt, telling him it was better to risk remaining a prisoner. He cut his father's horse loose, however, and giving him the lash the horse started off at full speed, and though repeatedly fired at by the Indians, succeeded in reaching home, and was the mans of giving an immediate and general alarm. Two of the Indians then stepped behind the fathers and dealt them a heavy blow upon the head. Mr Haynes, who was quite aged, instantly fell, but Ladd did not. Another of the savages then stepped before the latter and raised his hatchet as if to strike. Ladd closed his eyes, expecting the blow would fall, but it came not, and when he again opened his eyes he saw the Indian stepped behind him and felled him at a blow. The Indians, on being asked why they killed the old men, said they killed Haynes because 'he was so old he no go with us,' meaning that he was too aged and infirm to travel; and that they killed Ladd, who was a fierce, stern looking man, because, 'he so sour.' They started for Penacook, where they arrived with the 2 boys."

    Notes:

    A descendant of the emigrant Daniel Ladd writes:
    "Horace Walpole, when speaking of the times of Charles the 2nd, said, 'that there were no Englishmen then left in England for that all men worthy the name had gone to American; and though this is the language of hyperbole, there was enough of truth in it to give it point; and Lord Brougham said that New England was founded by men of whom Old England was not worthy It has been wisely as well as beautifully said that 'God sifted a whole nation that He might send choice grain over into this wilderness Of this grain was 'that Daniel Ladd from whom we are descended. He came here in the prime of his youth, and for sixty years thereafter labored, trusting God and fearing nothing,---neither labor, nor cold, nor privation, nor savage enemies, so that he might help to build up, on these rough shores, a better England than he had left behind. And wisely his work, and the work of those who were like him, do follow them. "That Daniel Ladd was accounted a man of good social position, when that was a matter of no small consequence, though all were practically nearly on the same level in point of fortune, we have every reason to believe. He held at one time the rank of "Lieutenant,' and his son Nataniel, who came to Exeter, married there the daughter of Hon. John Gilman, one of the Council for the Government of Province, Speaker of the House of Assembly in 1697, and the leading man, both for wealth and influence, in the Province out of Portsmouth, and the founder of a family which, down to this day, has been one of the most distinguished in the Province and State. Other marriages, in this and the next generation, bear witness to the respectability and social consideration of the Ladd family."
    By: Rev. Mr. Stoughton, in his Election Sermon, Memorial History of Boston, Vol., 1, pg 148.
    Daniel, the emigrant settler, came with wife Ann from Wiltshire, England,; according to one authority in the ship "Mary and John," of London, March 24, 1633-1634, Robert Sayres, master. His name appears next in Ipswich records in 1637, when he was granted 6 acres of land by the town, upon which he built a dwelling house, which 7 years later, in 1644, he sold to Henry Kingsbury of Ipswich, who afterwards removed to Rowley, an adjoining town, and then to Haverhill. In 1639 Daniel had removed to Salisbury, Mass., on the North side of the Merrimac River. At this time Salisbury, which at first was called Colchester, was one of the towns of the ancient county of Norfolk, which also included Hampton and Exeter, all towns on the north side of the Merrimac River. Haverhill at this time (1639) was not organized. Ladd took a party with 50 other men in the affairs of Salisbury, By the record of the birth of 3 of his children, it appears that he was residing in Salisbury in 1644, and by the record of his fourth child; he was in Haverhill in 1646, and here he continued to reside until his death.

    Notes:

    George came to New England in 1639, and setled in Newbury, Massachusetts. He soon moved to Haverhill, where he resided the remainder of his life.

    George was a prosperous man; his daughters all marrying, and as these marriage connections were important to this genealogy.
    George settled in the West Parish in 1640.. he owned the land on both sides of the Spicket Path for a distance of three miles. In his will he gave to Mary Neff the land her husband lives upon, Pond Meadow, ect.; gave to Martha Ladd 90 acres at West Meadow; to Joanna Hutchins 200 acres, to Huldah Kingsbury 30 acres of land at West Meadow. To daughter, Ann Robie, 200 acres; to Deborah Eastman one-half of the sixth division, and one-half of the upper Spicket Meadow; to Sarah Ayer, one-half of the sixth division, and one-half of the upper Spicket Meadow.

    According to the "New England Families Genealogical and Memorial": George, his son John and his grandson John, all died on the same farm, and each one sitting in the same chair. A remarkable coincidence!
