Boxford, MA, 1987; p67
"SAMUEL, b. probably ca. 1674, d. after 1705. He was mentally incompetent and under the
care of his brother Joseph, who was allowed 100 by order of the Superior Court at Bristol in
1701 for having maintained him for "ye space of tenn years", this amount to be raised from
the profits of Samuel's land in Tiverton, "he being an Idiott and not able to provide for himself."
His father had left him the 19th Great Lot there, but with the restriction that he was not to have
the disposal of it himself."
