  • Name John SMALLEY  [1, 2
    • John Smalley, an associate of Richard Higgins and the other pioneers in the settlement at Nausett, was neither freeman nor tax payer at Plymouth in 1663. He was, however, at Plymouth as early as 1638. By trade he was a tailor. He seems to have taken but very little part in public affairs. he was admitted a freeman at Plymouth in 1642. he was a constable at Nausett in 1646, a surveyor in 1649, and of the Grand Inquest in 1654, 1660 and 1665. He was specially favored by the court, and had land granted him in 1658 between Bridgewater and Weymouth, and in 1662 near Taunton....

      The time of his death is not known, and we fail to find ay settlement of his estate...He was living in January, 1668, and had a ward some six years of age, who wandered six or seven miles from his house into the woods and died from exposure.

      Mr. Smalley was undoubtedly a man who did not seek notoriety. He seemed to enjoy the quietness of his farm more than the honors and troubles of office. He lived in peace with all men, there can be no doubt, and was gathered to his fathers in peace.... [1]
