Notes
a. Note:   The year of Theophilus' birth is not set. Macdonald (TAG, 150:185) estimates 1599. Davis (p. 285) states he was born about 1614. From Davis, p. 285: "His name first appears upon the Ipswich records in 1639, and in 1642 he was one of the young soliders sent by the town to disarm the Indian chief Passaconoway. With Edward Chapman and Thomas Perkins he sued Roger Cheston in the court of March, 1646. In 1648 he was a subscirber to Major General Denison's salary. By 1650 he had moved to Haverhill where he took the Oath of Fidelity and served on a Norfolk county trial jury, as he did in 1652 (dismissed) and 1653. He was possibly not a man of average good health, for in 1653, when he would have been only thirty-nine years old, the town of Haverhill gave him 'liberty to train or not according as he is able, provided he pay 12d. a day to the Haverhill company.' In 1653 he also sold his dwelling house in Ipswich, near the north end of the town, to William Marchent who had been his tenant. He was not often in the courts. In 1653 he was sued by Job Clement for mowing and carrying away Clement's hay in the Hawkes meadow and in 1654 he sued Tristram Coffin for not insuring him three acres of accommodation according to promise. He lost both cases. He was appointed Edward Clarke's attorney in 1659. In 1659, aged forty-five, he testified that he had made an agreement for the sale of a house between merchant Joseph Jewett of Rowley and his kinsman Richard Shatswell. A partner in a Haverhill saw-mill as early as 1651, he and Daniel ladd erected a mill at Spiggot river in 1659. He was a signatory to the petition in favor of the liberal Robert Pike [Ed. Note: See notes on Robert Pike in this database]. "
