    Notes:

    Name:
    ...Both are buried in the Old Commons cemetery. William Pabodie grew up in Duxbury with his father and then took for himself various occupations. He has been identified as yeoman (1648), boatman (1672), and planter. He was also a land surveyor and surveyed the land in Little Compton with Constant Southworth.

    He acquired by purchase with others a share of land in Little Compton and moved there about 1684. He purchased most of the three quarters of a mile square in Little Compton, which was formerly laid out to 32 different purchasers. The bounds of his land were as follows: bounded east on the great main road, west on the Sakonet river, south on Col. Benjamin Church, which land now belongs to the Benjamin F. Wilbour heirs, and north on the John Wood farm which was made up of the northernmost lots from the road to the river and one lot wide, bounded on the north by Taylor's land. William Pabodie owned most of the three quarters of a mile square, formerly the reservation of Awashonks, queen of the Sogonates, expecting the lots that border on Taylor's land and the lots on the other side of the road, one lot wide. there has been much controversy as to where he lived and for a lont time it was claimed that he lived in the so called Betty Alden house, the property of the late Lizzie Gray. This was however, claimed by people who did not know that besides owning this land he also owned the Isaac C. Wilbour place and the present David Brayton place. (It is the belief of the editor that he lived in what in 1890 was the Isaac C. Wilbour house.) He also bought land in Mettapoisett and Sepecan which he later sold.

    Also a school teacher, he taught in Little Compton, as well as serving as secretary and record keeper of the first proprietors of Little Compton.

    On 1 Aug. 1654 he was elected to the General Court which met at Plymouth, and he served there until 1663, and again from 1668 to 1682.

    His will, recorded in Taunton Probate, book 2, page 193, made 13 May 1707 and proved 27 Feb. 1708: "Executors, wife Elizabeth and son William...To wife, east end of house in Little Compton and part of the land given formerly to son William, all to be hers while widow, and also to her all household goods, cattle, bills due and money, but if she choose to claim her thirds of my land and house at Duxbury and make use of them, then my son William to have the whole of housing and lands in Little Compton and to pay Samuel Barlett 50 shillings er year during the time his mother makes use of her thirds at Duxbury. To son William after death of his mother, the part of house and land bequeathed her for life. To son William other land and all my books, tools...To three grandsons, namely Stephen Southworth, son of daughter Rebecca, deceased, and John and William Pabodie, sons of son William, land and Westquadnaug, part purchased by son-in-law William Fobes of Shubael Painter and assigned by William Fobes to my son-in-law Ichabod Wiswall...To daughters Mary, Mercy, Martha, Priscilla, Ruth, Sarah, Hannah and Lyda, each one shilling. To daughter Lydia Grinnell a set of green curtains, she having already received her part... " Inventory: 407 pounds-14 shillings. 70 acres of land at 315 pounds, dwelling house and half of barn 30 pounds. Two feather beds....
