KING PHILIP'S WAR

Chapter 28, Part VII 

NARRAGANSET TOWNSHIP NO. 6, NOW TEMPLETON, MASS.

This township was confirmed by the General Court February 12th, 1733, to one hundred and twenty grantees, or their representatives, then residing in the towns of Concord, Groton, Marlboro', Chelmsford, Billerica, Lancaster, Lexington, Stow, Framingham, Littleton, Sherborn, Stoneham, Southboro', Woburn. The committee chosen to manage the affairs of this township were Mr. Samuel Chandler of Concord, Mr. Jacob Wright of Woburn, and Capt. Benjamin Prescott of Groton. This committee seems to have managed so well as not to have troubled the General Court further, except in 1736, when it was found that their grant fell about one thousand acres short of the amount granted, partly by rectifying the line of Narraganset No. 2. In answer to this the Court granted a tract of four hundred acres on the northerly side, from the Province lands. 

The list of names for this township is the least satisfactory of all. After a search extending, at various times, over many years, I have not been able to find any list of grantees, and after long study and research present this list of original claimants with such additional facts and hints as I can glean from various sources. From the old Proprietors' Record-Book, in Templeton, I copied the earliest list of those who drew lots on June 24th, 1735. No residence is mentioned in connection with the names, and only in a few instances is any reference made to the grantees. From the partial list in the State Archives I gather the grantees living in Concord and Billerica. Those items which follow the star, (*) are references to this volume. It is to be plainly understood that these are only hints, and by no means identifications of grantees. Many of the company of Captain Davenport were from the towns represented in this grant. These references may help the student in overcoming some of the defects of this list.
