    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 [2]
