    Notes 
    • "At a Court held in Boston, by adjournment, March 28, 1680, Adm. on the estate of Richard Griffin, sometime of Muddy River, dec'd, intestate, formerly under the administration of Mary his relict, now also dec'd, is granted to Joseph Griffin, his son." (Suffolk Court Records, Vol. 9, p. 1.)

      An ancient note book kept by Nathaniel Hammond, Jr., is still in existence and is now (1902) in possession of a descendant, Mr. George Warren Hammond, of Yarmouthville, Me. It contains many valuable records relating to early Newton families and is relied upon to prove, without a question of doubt, who his mother really was. So much doubt has been entertained on this point in the past that the author has taken pains to copy a few entries from this very interesting and ancient book. The following are among the earlier entries and may be taken to prove the connection conclusively. Under date of Feb. 23, 1711-12, the entry is as follows:

      Then reckoned with my unkol, Joseph Griffin, and paid for his son's work, the year ending June 12, 1711.

      There is also an entry of money paid to Benjamin Griffin, probably the son.

      August 1, 1712, Paid to my onkel, Joseph Griffin, four pounds.

      May 25, 1713, Then reckoned with my unkol, Joseph Griffin; due to him ten pounds, seven shillings.

      August 31, 1700, James Trowbridge, Thomas Oliver and John Staples, a "committee appointed by Hon. James Russell, Esq., Judge of Probate for the County of Middlesex, for dividing the estate of Nathaniel Hammond, late of Newtowe," report the following division:

      To the widdow for her thirds £170-02-6
      To the eldest son, Nathaniel Hammond, for his duboll share 85-02-6
      To Thomas Hammond, the second son 42-11-3
      To eldest daughter, Mary Hammond 42-11-3
      To second daughter, Sarah Hammond 42-11-3
      To the third daughter, Elizabeth Hammond, 42-11-3
      To the fourth daughter, Easter Hammond 42-11-3
      To Hannah Hammond, youngest daughter 42-11-3
      The sum to all is £510-15-8

      May 6, 1702, Nathaniel and Thomas Hammond, Samuel Truesdale and Elizabeth, his wife, Samuel Prentice and Esther, his wife, Mary and Sarah Hammond, children of Nathaniel Hammond, late of Newton, agreed that the share of their sister, Hannah, deceased, in her minority, should go to their brother, Thomas. In this agreement they mention "Mary Williams, our mother, widow of our father, Nathaniel Hammond."
