    Notes:

    Excerpt from "A Merrill Memorial Vol. 1": Abel Merrill was the youngest in the second generation of Newbury Merrills, and dying at forty-five years of age, his ws the shortest life. His descendants, however, are more numerous, and more widely scatteres, than those of most of his brother. At the doath of his father he was only eleven years of age. In 1668 he took the "Oath of ffidelitie" to the government, and in September, 1678, he took the oath of allegiance, his age being then recorded as thirty-two years, although it would appear that he was at that time two years older.
    In 1682 a Baptist church ws formed in Newbury, and Abel Merrill was one of the original members. Under the name of "
    Abil Merell" he appears to have been a soldier in the company of Capt. Thomas Noyes in 1688.
    The tax list of 1688 shows that Abel Merrill was in that year assessed on one house, five acres of "Plow Lands" in Newbury, one horse, five cows, six young cattle, ten sheep and four swine. At his death he was an owner of land in Haverhill, his interest being appraised at oe35. This was no doubt his undivided share in land which he and his brother Daniel purchases in 1673 and 1674. He died intestate.

    Notes:

    Excerpt from "A Merrill Memorial vol. 1": Nathaniel Merrill was one of the earliest settlers of Newbury, Mass., in 1635. He was the ancestor of a vast majority of those who now bear the Merrill name in this country: it is believed, indeed, that less than one percent of the Merrills in America cantrace their pedigree to any other emigrant ancestor.
    Nathaniel Merrill and his older brother John were born in England. The registers of Wherstead, a parish lying three miles south of Ipswich, in Suffolk County, England, contain the following entries:

    1599, Aug. 16 John Merrell son of Nath??Merrell & Mary his wife was baptised.
    1601, May 4, Nathanaell Merrell son of Nath?? Merrell & Mary his wife was baptised.

    Nathaniel Merrill and his brother John settled in Newbury in the Spring of 1635, having passed a year or two at Ipswich, Mass., (then called Agawam) with most of the Newbury settlers. In 1638 Nathaniel became one of the "proprietors" of Newbury

    Notes:

    Excerpt from "A Merrill Memorial Vol. 1": Priscilla Chase was a daughter of Aquila Chase, who had come from Cornwall, England, and settled in Hampton, New Hampshire, about 1639. Aquila Chase possessed some skill as a mariner, and for this reason he ws induced by the inhabitants of Newbury, by a grant of land, to join the settlement at the mouth of the Merrimack in 1646. This grant was made "on condition that he do goe to sea and do service in the towne with a boate for four years." His service was probably confined to short coastwise and fishing cruises. Through ten of his eleven children, who grew up and married, Aquila Chase is ancestor of a very numerous family.
