  • Notes 
    • According to NE Families Gen & Hist by Cutter,

      William came from England in 1630, the same year that
      Boston was founded, probably in the fleet with Sir Richard Saltonstall and Governor
      Winthrop. William was made freeman in 1631, and was a very prominent man; he was
      ensign in command of one of the four companies sent from Watertown tochastise the
      Pequot Indians, August, 1636; he was later made captain for Watertown, and in May,
      1637, he was one of four commissioners appointed by the court to provide men, ammunition
      and provisions for the Pequot war. On September 3, 1638, the court granted William
      200 acres for his services in what was afterwards Framingham; he had no family; he
      was an original member of the "Great Artillery Company", incorporatedMarch 13, 1638-9,
      long known as the "Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company". William returned to
      England shortly after 1645, and was living there as late as 1657.
