    Notes 
    • Excerpt from "Records of William Spooner, Second Generation": As early as Oct 16, 1669, John Spooner was one of a jury apppointed by the Court of Assistants "to lay out a highway, a county road from Middleboro, Bridgewater, and other places toward Boston." - establishes the fact, that at that date he was a man of consideration, and esteemed by the Court as of sound judgment, - such services were then only confided to men of known worth and intelligence, and usually of mature years.
      He further served the Colony as Grand Juror, in 1702; and, his townsmen as Surveyor of Highways, 1686, 1699 and 1700, and was a member of the Town Council 1690. It is recorded that John Spooner was elected, may 18th 1710, to represent Dartmouth in the General Court, but on reference to the published list of officers as complied by Mr. Whittemore, it is not seen that he took his seat as Representative.
      It is believed that John married twice, but the names of his wives are unknown.
