    Notes 
    • "From an early document: 25 October 1649. John Shepheard of Braintre [sic] in NE: carpender, husband of Margaret Squire, daughter of Henry Squire late of Kinweston[sic] neere Somerton in Somersetshire granted power of attorney to John Adams (Brother of Jonathan; born 1622, husband of Anne Howe) of Concord to receive all rents due for lands now or late in the tenure and occupation of Jonathan Adams living neere Ballsbury [sic] in Somersetshire."

      Jonathan first appears in the town of Medfield in 1658. He had no grant of a house lot. He may have lived with a relative until he soon settled on the west side of the Charles River. Jonathan drew 84 acres in West Medway 1659, a few rods north of his brother Edward's.
      His house was burned by the Indians in 1676, and his name appears among the petitioners for aid from the General Court on account of their losses. He evidently rebuilt on the same spot (in 1888, known as Joseph Adams place, in Millis); and he appears to have been in reduced circumstances for some years, as he had his own town rates remitted in 1684-85. His estate was inventoried 1691 when he had land and buildings west of Charles river.
