  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Benson, Richard H. The Nash Family of Weymouth, Massachusetts. (Boston: Newbury Street Press, 1998)

    Joseph Nash, was a son of James and Alice Nash, as evidenced by a deed of 15 November 1675, in which James Nash, Senior, of Weymouth and Alice his wife, sold land and buildings in Boston to their son, Joseph Nash of Boston, mariner. [ Suffolk County Deeds, XI:45. It is interesting that early Nash family genealogists evidently had not seen this deed and another deed of 1679, which call Joseph a son of James and Alice....]

    Joseph married first Elizabeth Holbrook about 1673, since their son Joseph was born in 1674. She was the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Stream) Holbrook of Weymouth. In his will of 23 November 1699, John Holbrook listed Elizabeth's children, Elizabeth and Joseph Nash. [Suffolk County Probate, 14:3.]

    Joseph then married Grace (Stoddard?) sometime before the end of 1684. She was probably Grace Stoddard, daughter of Anthony and Barbara (Clap) (Weld) Stoddard, who was baptized at Boston 16 July 1648. [Second Report of the Record Commissioners of the City of Boston, Boston Records 1634-1660 (Boston, 1902).]

    Joseph owned a house and land on Greenfield Lane in Scituate, Massachusetts in 1670, which he purchased from Walter Hatch. [Samuel Deane, History of Scituate, Massachusetts (Boston, 1831), page 314

    Joseph and Elizabeth probably moved to Boston when they purchased land from Joseph's father on 15 November 1675, as discussed above. A deed dated 18 May 1676, refers to land at the north end of Boston next to the street "that leadeth from the Mill Bridge and over to the sea channel next to land now in the tenure and occupation of Joseph Nash, Jr." [Suffolk County Deeds, 9:337.]

    Joseph died before 24 September 1697, when his widow, Grace declined to administer his estate. [Suffok County Probate, 2:342.]
