  • Name George HALL  [1
    • George Hall resided in that section of Taunton, North Purchase, which became Norton in 1711, and Easton in 1725. He owned land and portion of a sawmill which he sold in 1724, and also sold other land in 1828; after the death of his wie in 1826, he was appointed guardian of his children, who were minors, having inherited large tracts of land (being a portion of the Taunton North purchase), lying in Norton, then Easton, from their grandmother, katharine Dean, and aunt, Hannah Dean. records show the sale of that inheritance from time to time, after the heirs became of age. In 1738, Isaac Hall, then in Dedham, Mass., with his sister Lydia, wife of Thomas Morey, of Norton, sold their shares for L150. The same year George, Jr. late of Groton, then resident of Taunton, sold his interest to his brother-in-law, Seth Leonard, for L130. In 1741, Deborah, dau. of George, and her husband, Seth Leonard, sold their interest, with dwelling house, etc., in Easton, for L400---"reserving the right only of our honored father, George Hall, the improvement during his life." They removed to Lyme, Conn., with their brothers where Seth died, as Deborah was a widow in 1751. In 1743, Abial, "refiner" then of Walpole, Mass., sold his share for L50. In 1744, Thomas, of Lyme, Conn., sold his share for L60. Abijah, then resident of Middletown, sold, in 1751, a small share to his brothers and sister for L15. There are indications that George, senior, may have resided several years with his sons in Lyme. Records state that in 1760 (at the age of 79), he acknowledged his deed of sale in 1724, before a magistrate in Norton. In a deed of his first sale of land, in 1702 (inherited from his father), for L60, he is recorded as "a carpenter." [1]
