    "7 Robert1 Ring† [or Ringe], of Salisbury, 'cooper' and 'planter,' prob. b. ab. 1614; per. bro. of Richard; m. Elizabeth (_____). He recd. land in the 'first division' and in 1640; free. Oct., 1640; carried on the fishing business on Ring's Island in 1642;‡ 'householder' in S. in 1677; signed petition of 1680; d. 1690; will Jan. 23, 1687-8; March 31, 1691.§

    †He was prob. the Robert 'King,' aged 24, who came as servant of John Sanders, with John Cole, Roger Eastman, William Cottle, John 'Roaff' and others, in the 'Confidence,' 1638. [G. R. 1860, p. 335.]

    ‡Robert Ring returned to England and made Robert Pike his agent by a writing bearing date 1643. He was away about 8 years, and stated that he could not return to America by reason of the wars in England. His name is not on the list of commoners in 1650; but he was taxed in 1650 and 1652, signed the agreement of 1654, and recd. land that year. After his return to Salis. he endeavored to regain his common right and that of John Fuller, which he owned. The town claimed that, on account of his absence, land had been given to those who bought his first lots. Various papers relating to the case, bearing date from 1658 to 1665, are in the Norfolk Co. records, the Mass. Archives, and Supreme Court Files, Boston. In one of them he states that he 'sent over a servant who is now a useful man in the town and admitted a townsman.'

    §In it he gave property to 'Will Cottle, son to Sarah, now wife of John Hale of Nb., and Joanna, dau. to said Sarah;' also to Rev. Thomas Wells and his son Titus; in addition to his children and grandchildren, named as such."
