    Notes 
    • Excerpt from "A Genealogy of The Kidder Family": Ephraim Kidder with others took the oath of fidelity "before their chiefe officer," 4 Feb. 1677/8. He was taxed in Billerica in 1688. His name appears in a list of men sharing in a distribution of lots in the vicinity of "Rocky Hill," southeast of Billerica, and in a second division made in the Spring of 1708 he received an additional allotment of forty-seven acres. He inherited the old homestead in Billrica, on which he was born, and there he died "in ye 65th year of his age," as the inscription on his tombstone in the old burying ground on the Bedford Road reads. Nereby "lies ye body of Mrs. Rachel (Crosby)," his wife. The estate of Ephraim was administered by two of his sons, Thomas and Benjamin, Joseph "being gone to sea." His inventory totalled L224, a tidy sum for his day.
