    • Excerpt from "New England Families Genealogical and Memorial: Third Serices, Vol. IV":
      "William Spooner, the immigrant ancestor, was of Colchester, England, and apprenticed himself, March 27, 1637, to John Holmes, of New Plymouth, in America, gentleman. He was probably a brother of Thomas Spooner, of Salem, Massachusetts, thought to be son of John and Ann Spooner, who in 1616 were living at Leyden, Holland, where Ann, widow of John, was living in 1630; in 1637 Ann Spooner, doubtless mother of Thomas and William Spooner, was in salem in 1637. William Spooner, as apprentice, was transferred to John Coombs, of Plymouth, July 1, 1637. His name was on the list of those able to bear arms in Plymouth in 1643, and in 1648 he ordered by the court to pay the debts of his master and to take care of the children. He was admitted a freeman, June 6, 1654, and in the same year was surveyor of highways. In 1657 and 1666 he was a juror. About 1660 he removed to Dartmouth, where he and his sons built the first grist mill, in what is now Acusnet Village. He married (first) Elizabeth Partridge, who died Apr 28, 1648; (second) March 18, 1651; Hannah Pratt. He died in 1694. His will was dated March 8, 1693-1694, and his inventory was dated Mar 14. Child by first wife: John. Children by second wife: Sarah, born Oct 5, 1653; Samuel; Martha; William; Isaac, died in 1709; Hannah; Ebenezer, born 1666; Mercy.
