"Care must be taken not to confuse members of this family with the descendants of Adam Mott of Portsmouth, R.I., who also settled in Kingston and Westerly, R.I." 
MOTT, Nathaniel (I599)

"The date of his emigration to New England [with wife and five children] is not known; but he may have come with his brother William, on his second trip to New England, in the CASTLE, in 1638. He settled at Scituate, and was proposed as a freeman 5 Mar 1638/9." 
HATCH, Thomas of Scituate (I4867)

"[O]n October 29, 1638, Robert appeared at a town meeting in Salem and asked for 'accomodation," that is to say, a grant of land, which be obtained. Thomasine and her children became strong Quakers and suffered severely for their faith." 
BUFFUM, Robert (I690)

Nathaniel "is first mentioned, as an inhabitant of Scituate, in the list of men able to bear arms in Plymouth Colony in 1643. In 1645 he was one of the eight Scituate men sent out in the expedition of Plymouth Colony against the Narragansett Indians . . . . The births of his children are all recorded in the Braintree records, and the same records state that he was one of the four Braintree men killed by the Indians, 23 Feb. 1675/6, when they made their incursion into that town." 
MOTT, Nathaniel (I599)

Thomas Parris "was selectman of Duxbury in 1710. The west part of that town was incorporated Pembroke, March 21, 1712. In 1713 he was town clerk of the latter town. In 1716 he was again chosen to that office and continued as clerk to 1733. In 1722 was selectman and constable in 1738. He was the first school teacher in Pembroke, 1712." 
PARRIS, Thomas the Emigrant (I55)

Joshua "was Dea. Joshua Fisher of Dedham, Mass." 
FISHER, Joshua (I3481)

William "fled with his father in Q. Maries dayes" [Chandler Manuscripts]. He was a churchwarden in the parish of St. James in 1601. 
FISKE, William (I3493)
 
32
"He desires to be buried at the chancel end of the Church of All Saints, in Laxfield, next [sic] his father, son Robert, son William, and wife Elizabeth, son Jeffrey, daus. Joan Iverton, Gelyne Warner, Agnes Fiske, son Simon." 
FISKE, Simon (I4665)
 
33
"Simon Fiske was probably a grandson of Hugh Fiske or Fisqs, who appears as a landholder at Laxfield about the middle of the fourteenth century and in his turn was probably a descendant of Daniel Fiske of Laxfield, 1208. . . The name of the wife of Hugh Fiske has not been discovered, nor the Christian name of his son, who is supposed to have been of Laxfield about 1390 and to have been the father of the Simon Fiske [i4669] with whom this pedigree begins." 
FISKE, Simon (I4669)
 
34 "Nathaniel Mott, the son of Nathaniel & Hanna born 6.30.1661."  MOTT, Nathaniel (I2729)
 
35 "?Samuel. It is certain that Robert McCracken left no son of this name when he made his will, but in one of the tax lists there are two men named Samuel McCracken, and we therefore posit a son of Robert who died vita patris." (The McCrackens of Mount Bethel, p. 264) MCCRACKEN, Samuel (I902)
 
36 "'Tamoson Buffum' -- This Christian name is a corruption of Thomasine. It is variously spelled in early records. The complier prefers to concur with Walter N Buffum, the writer, with the spelling "Tamoson", because that is the way Joshua Buffum spells the name (his mother's) in his account book . . ."! For the sake of consistency this form, "Tamoson", has been assigned to the wife of Robert Buffum and all bearing the name through the third generation. Thereafter the best evidence is that those who possessed the name used the shorter form, Tamson." (WARD) THOMPSON, Tamoson (Thomasine) (I691)
 
37 ". . .Thomas Parris of London, who is the oldest ancester known."

"The name Parris is sometimes differently spelled by different branches of the family. Some write their name Paris, with but one r, while others write it Parish. In the will of John Parris of Barbadoes, the brother of Thomas Parris of London, the family name is spelled Parris, and hence we suppose that to be the true name. We also find in the church records of Salem, mass., the minister, Samuel Parris, wrote his name the same way."  
PARRIS, Thomas of London (I58)
 
38 "10 children on whom see Mrs Spicer and DAR Lineage Book 91:183." (The McCrackens of Mount Bethel, p. 263) REA, William (I541)

41 "2 i. Andrew ROSS2 died before 1730 in Scotland. He was born in Parish of Fern, Ross-shire, Scotland. Andrew became third Laird of Balblair in 1710. He married Margaret Gallic before 1710. He was a scrivener and lawyer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

"He left an only son Andrew, fourth Laird of Balblair and a surgeon at Kingston, Jamaica, who in 1730 sold the estate of Balblair to John Cruikshank, a London merchant. Andrew died without a male heir and so the title of fifth Laird of Balblair was vested in John Ross, eldest son of Rev. George Ross, of New Castle, DE, as eldest male heir of the House of Balblair.

"The Balblair estate was then conveyed in 1732 by John Cruikshank to a family who happened also to be called Ross (but from the Norman name de Roos). William Ross, seventh Laird of Shandwick and a writer in Edinburgh, Scotland, was born in 1694 and died, unmarried, in April 1739. At his death, his brother Hugh inherited the estates of Balblair and Shandwick. Hugh, born about 1695, was a London merchant. A letter written by Hugh in 1764 to John Ross of Philadelphia said "You stand Cadet of the decayed house of Ballamuchy. Balblair of your title was purchased by my brother, as it was part of his house originally. It remains yet. My eldest brother dying a bachelor, you shall find me his heir, as the historyographer of Scotland's deductions show." Hugh died 12 Apr 1775."

42 "6 i. David ROSS was born about 1708 in New Castle, New Castle Co., DE. He died before 1754. David was said to have married Sarah Rolfe. She was from the line of Thomas Rolfe, son of John and Rebecca Rolfe. Rebecca was the Indian princess Pocahontas. David and Sarah had four children: Daniel; George; John, born 1732; and James Michael, born about 1740 and died 1801 in Stoneycreek Twp., Somerset Co., PA.

"David was said to be a Church of England missionary. However, Edmund Hayes Bell, a Ross family researcher at the turn of the century, said in a letter to Frank Willing Leach, another Ross researcher: 'I have never been able to locate him at Albany, N.Y, and doubt his having been a clergyman...The name of Rev. David Ross does not appear in the records of the London Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts nor can it be found in any of the records of St. Pater's Church, Albany, N.Y. or of the Episcopal Church in New York State. On the other hand, Holcomb's History of Immanuel Church, New Castle, De, pg. 178, mentions Rev. David Ross, and Mr. Thompson Read in his life of George Read of Delaware, pg. 62, mentions Rev. George Ross' eldest son David who died a missionary of the Church of England at Albany, N.Y.' "  
ROSS, Rev. David (I2342)
 
43 "A wheelwright, he was a member of the Church of England. It is said that he fled (from Laxfield?) to escape persecution because of his religious convictions during the reign of Queen Mary, but the date assigned to this flight, also by his brother Robert Fiske . . . should have been after 1546, when Henry VIII was still King." FISKE, William (I5283)
 
44 "Aaron was 'in his father's company at Lexington and is probably the Aaron Smith 3rd in the town records; also called Aaron Smith Esq." SMITH, Aaron Jr. (I3311)
 
45 "About 1720, the Indians at the East again began to manifest open hostilities to the whites, which soon assumed the proportions of war. There had been occasional fights previous to 1722, instigated by the French Jesuits, and in August 1723 the General Court met and approved of the proclamation of war which had been issued by Gov. Samuel Shute . . . . By the death of Gov. Shute the conduct of the war fell to the lot of Lieut-Gov William Dummer, acting governor of the colony; hence it is sometimes known as Dummer's War. Expeditions were sent in successive years, with great loss of men and money,until the natives were subdued.

" 'First in the order of tie of our military heroes, in these days of trial,' says Marvin, 'was Lieut. afterwards Capt. Jabez Fairbank. He was a famous scouting officer, and traversed large sections of the country to the north, east and west, in search of prowling Indians." 
FAIRBANKS, Capt. Jabez (I3248)
 
46 "Adm was granted on his estate June 30, 1715." BEAN, William (I3440)
 
47 "Admitted townsman in Dedham 'ye 1 of ye 11: 1654,' and signed the covenant.

"He was a soldier in King Phillip's War, serving in the first or Mr. Hope campaign in 1675, also in several subsequent campaigns. His name appears in the list of 'Assignment of Wages' to the town of Roxbury, Aug 26, which leads to the supposition that at that time he resided there . . . " 
FAIRBANKS, Jonathan (I1891)

His family are all dead, save two -- one living in Hancock county, West Virginia, and the other in Meigs county, Ohio." (Pan-Handle History, p 443.) SCOTT, Alexander (I503)
 
49 "Anthony Fisher lived in the latter part of Queen Elizabeth's reign, in the parish of Syleham, County Suffolk, England, on the south bank of the Waveney River, which separates Suffolk from Norfolk, on a freehold estate called 'Wignotte.'" FISHER, Anthony (I3492)
