    Notes 
    • He early learned his father's trade of miller, and became an enterprising business man. "The town intended to grant leave for another mill to be set upon South River in 1663 ; but John Trask so engaged for his father to grind the corn of the inhabitants or have it ground at Lynn, as to have such intention suspended." (Annals of Salem, 1st edition, p. 587.) In 1697 he purchased all the right, title and interest of his nephew, William Trask of Weymouth, in the dam, stream and mill standing upon the North River in Salem. He was afterwards associated in business with his son-in-law, Joseph Boyce, Jr.; and we learn that in 1712 "Leave was granted them to move, their mill on the upper part of North river, down to Spooner's point, if within three years they made and supported a way across the same stream. This of course included a bridge for men and teams." (Annals of Salem, Vol. 1, p. 305)
