"Samuel (Maverick), Boston, found here on Noddle's isl. by the Mass. comp. in 1630, hav. built a little fort with four small pieces of artil. so that we may be sure he was here in 1629, perhaps came in 1628, too late for liability to expense of the expedit. of Endicott against Morton. He desir. adm. 19 Oct. 1630, into the comp. but did not take the freeman's o. until 2 Oct. 1632. Against all probabil. he is call. s. of Rev. John by a writer of more animation than exactness, in Hist. of E. Boston; and even the careful Hist. of Dorchester, 404, confident. says the same. For his habit of hospitality, he was requir. in the spring of 1635, to change his resid. and move to the peninsula, but that tyranny was not enforced, and in the autumn of the same yr. he went to Virg. to buy corn, was absent almost a yr. He was one of the king's Commissrs. 1665, and in a depon. 9 Dec. 1665, sw. he was 63 yrs. old. Of his fam. only w. Amias, d. Mary, and s. Nathaniel, and Samuel are kn. Nathaniel, wh. was a merch. in a conveyance by his f. and mo. 1650, of the isl. to some creditors, is styled heir of Noddle's isl. and he join. in the security. But we never hear more of him. Mary m. 8 Feb. 1656, John Palsgrave, and next, 20 Sept. 1660, Francis Hooke. She, in a petitn. to Andros, a few wks. bef. his overthrow, tells a strange story a. her elder br. defraud. his f. of the title to Noddle's isl. wh. had above seventeen yrs. been own. by Col. Samuel Shrimpton, under sale from Sir Thomas Temple. It may be, that, as Shrimpton was oppos. to Sir Edmund A. tho. one of his council, that this was a contrivance to get rid of him. See Geneal. Reg. VIII. 334."
