    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!
