Nichoals of Watertown, freem. 1662, is by me presum. to be that man
made freem. 1662, whose name in Conn. Col. Rec. I. 391, is giv. Threed;
but he was of too much value to be thus obscur. rep. 1671, 3, 5, 6, and
7; aft. 1687; had good est. rem. to Bedford, just beyond the Col. bound.
in jurisdict. of N. Y. and I regret that no genealog. details are attain.
