    Notes 
    • “544. Lieut. James Nash. Occupation: shoemaker.

      "Lieut. James Nash of Weymouth, shoemaker, appeared with a wife Alice, and was made a freeman of Massachusetts Bay Colony in May, 1645. He was a representative from Weymouth, 1665, 1666, and 1667. Administration of his estate was granted to his sons John Nash of Boston, cooper, and Jacob Nash of Weymouth, housewright, 31 Dec 1680."89

      Robert Charles Anderson and Richard H. Benson concur that the Samuel Nash of Weymouth, shoemaker, was James Nash, and he was in Weymouth in 1641. James Nash appeared in the records of Weymouth when a description of his land was included on an undated list written between 26 Oct 1642 and 21 May 1644.

      James and Alice lived alternately between Weymouth and Boston. He owned land in Boston as early as 1645, and on 7 Jun 1648 purchased a parcel of marsh land along Mill Creek there. Their home was on Hanover Street at Mill Creek. James owned a whaarf 'on the East Side of Mill Creek near the bridge.' He owned a sloop and probably sailed it between Weymouth and Boston. At one time he owned 29 acres of land in Braintree which was bought by John Whitman of Weymouth, and later sold in 1748. In 1650 James purchased lands including a house, garden and orchards from James Waterman in Marshfield, but sold part or all of it the next year. He sold some of his Boston property in 1654 and 1664, the year he purchased 20 acres of land north of the common in Weymouth from Edmund Hart. He continued to buy and sell land until the year of his death.

      James was captain of the Weymouth militia, and he served as a representative from Weymouth to the General Court of Massachusetts in 1655 and from 1662 to 1667.

      On 1 Feb 1633 James married Alice Higgins, at Great Hampden, Buckinghamshire, Eng.Alice died aft 20 Apr 1680.

      Richard H. Benson argues convincingly that the Alice who was James Nash's wife was not Alice Burges, the daughter of Robert and Alice Burges, who is frequently listed as the wife of James, but Alice Higgins.”, [1]
