    George1 Martin, born ca. 1618, since he made a deposition on 3 Nov. 1674, giving his age as 56(Court Files #1563, Suffolk Col, MA, Courthouse). … George's date of death, probably in Amesbury, can be narrowed more than previously to the month between 15 March 1685/6, when he acknowledged a deed, and 15 2m (April) 1686, when the inventory of his estate was taken. … Major Robert Pike stated in 1695 that George Martin had come over as a servant of Samuel Winsley about the time that Salisbury was first settled (Court Files #3231, Suffolk Co., MA, Courthouse). … George Martin was very active in land dealing, for (old Norfolk deed books include) thirty deeds and mortgages in which he was a principal.
