    Notes:

    Name:
    His baptism is not found on the records, there being a break in them from 1602-1610, but we find his name in the will of his father, Ralph Prescott, in 1808. John Prescott lived in Sowerby, where five of his children were born, three of whom he brought to New England, while two were buried in Sowerby. In 1638 he was living in the Island of Barbadoes, owning more than ten acres of land on the island, as proved by an old record recently found there. In 1640, they came to New England, and settled for a time in Watertown, where he had large grants of land allotted to him. In 1643, he associated himself with Thomas King and others, for the purpose of purchasing from Sholam, the Indian Sachem of the Nashaway tribe of Indians, a tract of land for a township, which was to be ten miles long and eight miles in breadth, known as "Nashaway Plantation," afterwards Lancaster, Mass., of which he was one of the original settlers and is considered the founder. The town received its name 18th May, 1653; and the name, it is said, was given in honor of Mr. Prescott, it being the name of his native county in England. After the completion of his corn-mill, in 1654, he took up his residence near it, and the site of the garrison house has been noted as near the southeast corner of High and Water Streets, Clinton, Mass. At the time of his death, he was possessed of about seven hundred acres of land, and had given lands and a mill at Nonaicoiacus (now Ayer) to his son Jonas. three hundred acres of this estate lay about the Washacum Ponds, including the Sterling camp-grounds. He owned nearly all the land upon which the manufactories and most densely peopled streets of Clinton are located, and one hundred acres in South Lancaster, stretching from the summit of George Hill to the meeting of the river. M. 11 Apr. 1629, in Halifax Parish, Yorkshire, England, 'Mary Gawkroger' or Platts, d. 1674. We find that "Gawkroger" meant "left-handed" or left-handed Roger." There ws probably a Roger Platts, who was left-handed or "gawky." We do not wonder that Mary and other members of the family when they came to New England, left the name of Gawky or left-handed Roger behind.

    John married Mary Gawkroger (PLATTS) 24 Jan 1629, Halifax Parish, Yorkshire, England. Mary (daughter of Abraham Gawkroger (PLATTS) and Martha RILEY) was born , Halifax, England; died 1674. [Group Sheet]
