"WILLIAM GUTTERSON appeared in Ipswich as early as 1643 for the will of William Nevill, singleman of Ipswich dated April 15, of that year showed that a partnership existed between them whereby GUTTERSON was to have half the profits and bear half the charges accruing from the team hired of Mr. Bradstreet and the ground hired of Mr. Carner. In April, 1646, WILLIAM was a witness to the will of Joseph Morse of Ipswich whereon he signed by his mark. He appears to have been one of three herdsmen to keep the Ipswich cows on the north side of the river in 1647 from April to November. The first three weeks all three men were to go with the herd and thereafter two of them constantly and they were to attend at two gathering points one-half hour after sunrise so as to reach the common with the herd one hour after sunrise. They were to 'winde a horne before their goeing out' and were to bring the cattle home about one-half hour before sunset. In 1648 WILLIAM subscribed the sum of two shillings to be paid three times a year toward the salary for Maj. Dennison while he remained at the head of their military company. In 1649 WILLIAM was one of the 'watch.' In May, 1658, thirty-three men of Ipswich, including WILLIAM GUTTERSON, petitioned the General Court as to the extent of their voting rights. They were then, with the approval of the local freemen, permitted to act as jurymen and to have certain other civic privileges but were not, themselves, freemen. WILLIAM is supposed to have been a fisherman, though no proof is seen. In 1664 a part of Plum Island was divided as a permanent possession among the bona fide sesttlers of Ipswich in portions commensurate with their former rights of commonage on a community basis--and WILLIAM GUTTERSON had a share of the island with the others. He died intestate on June 26, 1666, leaving an estate of over 56 Pounds and ELIZABETH, his widow, was appointed administratix in July, 1666. The court ruled that she should have the estate for the support of the five children and should pay each one of them twenty shillings apiece as they came of age. The inventory showed among other things the possession of four cows, a sow and two 'shottes,' tools, old iron, a musket and sword 'and what it belongs to it,' twelve shillings value in books and napkins! She was unquestionably the widow ELIZABETH who married secondly in Haverhill on November 17, 1670, John called Callum, Collins, or Kilham. She bore him a child, Joanna, in May, 1672, and Callum died on February 25, 1693/4 being called 'husband of Elizabeth' so she must have died later. The known children of WILLIAM and ELIZABETH (___) GUTTERSON, all but the first one recorded at Ipswich, were: " See Family Group Sheets.
