NARRAGANSET TOWNSHIP NO. 7, NOW GORHAM, ME

This township was assigned by lot, at the memorable meeting at Luke Verdey's, October 17, 1733, to grantees resident in the towns of Barnstable, Yarmouth, Eastham, Sandwich, Plymouth, Tisbury, Abington, Duxbury, and "one of Scituate." The committee chosen to manage the affairs of this township were Col. Shubael Gorham, Mr. Timothy White, and Mr. Robert Standford. The township was located to the eastward of No. 1, and adjoining Falmouth and Presumpscot River.

The list below is copied directly from the old Proprietors' Record Book. There are two lists, almost identical, with the exception that one contains the residences and number of lots drawn to each name; the other contains a few additional facts serving to identify some of the claimants. The lists purport to be lists of grantees, but for a long time I have questioned this, and feared it was simply the claimants or proprietors, and find still some perplexing questions. For instance, "Mary Douener" or (Dovenour). How could she be a grantee? But, on the other hand, all the tests from other sources, which I have been able to apply, support the theory that these were the names of the "soldier grantees." The "partial list," in the Archives, often referred to above, contains the names of the grantees resident in Yarmouth, and simply gives the names of the soldier-grantees, followed by the word "Heirs;" and in every case these names agree with the list I copy here. I have included here the additional facts from the second list; for instance, "Thomas Standish, for his uncle, Henry Clark," which may be of help to students of genealogy. The starred items are the additions from the second list.
