    Notes 
    • He lived at Salisbury Point, Mass., and was a "ship-builder."

      From the website for Lowell’s Boat Shop:
      “In 1878, Salisbury historian W.H.B. currier noted: “Nearly ninety years ago [i.e. in 1791] Simeon Lowell of Amesbury, bought an estate of one Edmunds, ship-builder in Salisbury, and soon after, with his sons, commenced boat-building [on the Edmunds lot]. Thay built many boats for ships and other vessels, also small schooners for fishing, privateering, etc.’

      Prior to moving to Salisbury in 1791, Simeon Lowell practiced as a “boat builder” in Amnesbury as early as 1774 (Essex County Deed 144:127), and he moved to the Edmunds lot following the death of his first wife Anna Wadleigh in 1789. Two years after his re-marriage to Anna Webster of Salisbury, Simeon Lowell purchased the Edmunds lot on the Merrimack River.

      By 1793, Simeon Lowell (with his 20-year old son Stephen Lowell and his 16-year old son Benjamin Wadleigh Lowell) commenced the Lowell family boat building business on the Merrimack River shore. Located three lots downstream of the recent Lowell’s Boat Shop site, the historic Edmunds lot was used for ship-building and boat-building by the Lowells between 1791 and 1797; it was purchasd with a house, barn, wharf and shop buildings and was still owned by descendants of Simeon Lowell in 1927. In 1797 and 1815, Simeon Lowell expanded his waterfront holdings to include the two vacant lots which now support the surviving Lowell’s Boat Shop buildings.”
