    Notes 
    • Daniel POND, husbandman, the forefather of a long line of descendants, appeared in the town of Dedham, MA about the year 1652. On the 30th day, 1st month (March 30) 1652, he purchased of Nathaniel FISHER two acres of upland. With this were two acres of swamp land. On the 25th day, 12th month, 1662, (12 Feb 1662/3) he bought of Ralph Wheelock, his estate, on which was a dwelling house and barns, with a piece of swamp land "called the dead swamp amongst the rocks."
      His marriage to Abigail SHEPARD of Cambridge, occurred about the time of his first purchase, but it is not recorded either in Dorchester or Cambridge where it would have taken place. He himself was received into full communion in the Dedham Church 8 Jan 1653/4, and a son whose name was not given was baptized there on the 22nd of the same month. Daniel was one of the selectmen of the town in 1660. Wrentham was set off from Dedham in 1661, though the act was not confirmed by the court until 1673. Daniel POND immediately became an owner of real estate there, obtaining a grant of lot No. 15, as early as 22 Mar 1662/3. In 1664 he had a further grant of twelve acres "on the mill creek." He was granted further lands in 1676/7 and in 1685. He probably never lived at Wrentham, but his older sons took up the land and settled there.
      His wife Abigail died at Dedham, 5 July 1661, and if the records are correct in the date, he waited only until 18 September of the same year to wed another, Ann EDWARDS, who survived him. Daniel POND was a lieutenant of the militia, and took the freeman's oath in 1690. He died 4 Feb 1697/8, at Dedham. His will was proved 3 March, 1697/8. !Daniel POND & His Descendants, Edward D.
