SOLDIERS

IN

KING PHILIP'S WAR

Chapter 28, Part IV 

The original list from which I copied the above is signed by "Andrew Darby, Proprietor's Clark." The Company held their first meeting in Cambridge, December 20, 1633, and increased the committee to five persons by the addition of Ebenezer Breed and Samuel Trumbull, to those already named. There are, in the above list, 118 names. Phineas Upham appears twice. I think John Barnard, then alive, was the son of John, for whom Capt. Bowman drew in the right of his wife. Much more matter of interest may be found in the excellent "History of Westminster," by Rev. Wm. S. Heywood.

NARRAGANSET TOWNSHIP NO. 3, AMHERST, N.H.

The second of the two townships granted in 1728 became No. 3, "Souhegan West," in the later division; and was drawn to the grantees represented in the towns of Salem, Lynn, Marblehead, Gloucester, Andover, Topsfield, Beverly, Wenham, Boxford, Bradford, Scarborough, York, Falmouth, Chatham.

The committee chosen to manage the propriety were: Richard Mower, of Lynn; John Trask, Salem; and Ebenezer Rayment. This township was incorporated as Amherst, N.H., and originally embraced parts of the present towns of Merrimack, Mt. Vernon, and Milford, N.H. An excellent history of this town, by D. F. Secomb, was published in 1883.
