    Notes 
    • He was admitted at Providence an equal tenant in common in all the lands which Roger Williams had purchased of two Narraganset sachems, Canannicus and Miantouomi, which consisted of the county of Providence and a large part of the county of Kent. From several circumstances it is presumed that be was young when he came to Providence. It appears that he made choice of land near Whipple's Bridge, in Smithfield, for his settlement.

      John Scott took the oath of allegiance 30 May 1667. He served in King Philip's War from June 1675 to August 1676. He was shot by an Indian on his own doorstep at Pawtucket Ferry, mortally wounded and dying in a few days about 1 June 1677. It seems the Quaker settlement had retreated entirely to Newport during the war. John may have returned to Providence too soon for safety. John & Rebecca WHIPPLE leased for four years to Alexander BALCOM, of Newport, all the tract of land and meadows lying upon the south side of the Pawtucket River, near the former dwelling of William Blackstone (deceased) of Rehoboth, being formerly in the possession of John SCOTT of the Town of Providence. Although John SCOTT's will is referred to in deeds, no known copy is in existance. !Arms of Richard SCOTT, NEHGR 96:3-27 (1942) Silvanus, about 6 years old when his father was killed, lived with his mother in John Whipple's house. !NEHGR Vol. 60:168-175 - Apr 1906
