Date: Sat, 25 Mar 2000 13:34:19 EST
Charles Henry Pope's "Pioneers of Massachusetts" says this:
Quinton, fineryman, Lynn, in the employ of the Iron Works Co. before
1646. In Court, 1647. Deposed 27 (8) 1653, in the case of John Gifford vs.
the I.W. Co., age about 58 years. Removed to Braintree, and continued in the
same business. Wife Joan; children Richard and John, Hannah (m. as his
second wife, Henry Neale), Dorothy (age about 16 years in 1650, m. Richard
He d. 17 (4) 1667. Inv. of his estate taken 21 (5) 1667, and admin gr.
to widow Joan.
Note: Interesting that he was a "fineryman." Now, I think, we have
"refineries." I wonder what the difference might be?---Jan
