  • Notes 
    • Robert was a Freeman in 1666. He was a member of a military co. of men from
      Marblehead and Salem. The company engaged in the war with the Narragansett
      Indians under the chief King Philip. Robert was wounded in the famous "Swamp
      Fight" in Dec. 16-19, 1675. One record states that his first wife's name may
      have been Mary Jenkins. His first four children were born in Scituate. After
      his second marriage he moved to Prince St. in Boston, where his other children
      were born. He owned considerable property, and was a fisherman by trade.
