William Nickerson

He came from Norwich England in 1637. He acquired from the Indians by a series of purchases prior to the year 1683 the greater part of the present Township then known as Monomoyick. He and his sons and sons-in-laws

Robert Nickerson · Samuel Nickerson · John Nickerson · William Nickerson · Joseph Nickerson · Robert Eldredge · Tristram Hedges · Nathaniel Covell

were with their families the first settlers. They were soon followed by:

Edward Cottle · Thomas Crowell · John Doaning · William Griffith · Teague Jones · Caleb Lumbert · John Savage · Hugh Stuart

Later came:

John Atkins · Samuel Atkins · Thomas Atkins · Nathan Bassett · Benjamin Bearse · William Cahoon · John Collins · John Crowell · Paul Crowell · Thomas Doane · Johoshephat Eldredge · John Ellis · Morris Farris · George Godfrey · Jonathan Godfrey · Moses Godfrey · Daniel Hamilton · Joseph Harding · Ebenezer Hawes · Isaac Hawes · Thomas Howes · Richard Knowles · Elisha Mayo · Judah Mayo · William Mitchell · Robert Paddock · Benjamin Phillips · John Ryder · Daniel Sears · Edward Small · John Smith · John Taylor · Nathaniel Tomlon · Samuel Tucker · Jonathan Vickery

He who has no feelings of veneration for his predecessors should expect none from those who follow him.
