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."

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.
