    Notes 
    • John Partridge was born in Medfield. He settled in what is now Millis, in 1681. He was one of the first to take up his residence in that portion of Medfield lying west of Charles River, and was active in having it set off as the town of Medway, in 1713. In 1710, he was chosen master of a school established for residents of the west side. He was interested in church matters, and was a deacon of the Medway church. He was present at Deerfield when news was received of the return of the captives taken at the Deerfield massacre, and is said to have himself made a copy of Benjamin Waite's letter announcing their arrival at Albany, which, in comapany with John Plimpton, Jr., he brought to Medfield and delivered to the Rev. John Wilson, by whom it was forwarded to the Governor of the Colony. He married three times. He died in Medway, 9 Dec. 1743. His will was proved 4 Sept. 1744. All his children are named. His youngest son, Stephen, received the homestead, but dying before his father, and the latter not making a new will, the property passed into the hands of Stephen's widow, who afterwards married Abner Ellis.
