Notes for John MANTER
In Dec 1678, he traded his land in Falmouth for the eastern half of the Josiah Standish lot on which the house of the late Henry L. Whiting now stands. For some reason this did not suit his purpose and on May 4, 1678, he bought of Thomas 3 Mayhew the seven-acre lot on the east side of the Chilmark road, at the turn opposite the church, together with that part of a "neck of land" adjoining on the south, and east of "Merrys Field," and a half lot to the north, formerly belonging to James Skiffe, Jr. These properties remained in the family by inheritance for several generations. Two years later he sold the Standish lot to Mayhew. [*Dukes Deeds, I, 98, 267.] He over time served as a surveyor, juror, Ensign in the Foot Company and selectment from 1699 to 1705. [1078]
