On list of Emigrants aboard the SPARROW in May, 1622, was Nicholas Patch of Petherton, South. The Sparrow was sent out by London merchant Thomas Weston, and arrived in Massachusetts Bay in 1622. In Charles Bolton's REAL FOUNDERS OF NEW ENGLAND, as sited by Amesbury, the account indicates that Edmund (first cousin to Nicholas) and Nicholas were part of a group that in 1622 settled at Wessagusset (Weymouth). Not long after, it seems, they joined the Roger Conant group in the Cape Ann area; then by 1626 they had moved on to Naumkeag (Salem.) (Bolton, pp 43-53; 158-177.) Nicholas and Edmund were among the first to settle in Salem and were part of the group known as the "Old Planters. Their names were frequently on early land transactions recorded in the Essex County Book of Deeds, Book 1. Nicholas was granted 40 acres of land near Mackerel Cove in Beverly, part of Salem, on the sough side of Blad Hill (HISTORY OF SALEM, Vol 2, pp. 416-418, by Sidney Perley) as sited by Amsbury.
