    Notes 
    • p.324:”He resided in his native town, and followed the trade of a miller. He was a soldier in Philip’s War, and for his services, his heirs received a grant of land in Narrangansett No. 3, Souhegan West; now the town of Amherst, N.H. It is somomewhat uncertain whether or not he occupied the homestead, for in 1668, says Mr. Felt in his Annals of Salem, v. 2: p. 215, “William Trask agreed to give him (John Mason) 15s. a year for the use of his house and land. Payments of this rent were to be “on the day of St. John Baptist’s nativity, and on the feast-day of our Lord’s nativity; and in 1672 he sells to his brother John “that my pt of the dwelling house he now possesseth the which house was by our father’s legacy willed between us.” (Essex County Deeds, v. 5: p. 214.)”
