Daniel Hudson, a brickmaker and bricklayer from Watertown, was admitted
an inhabitant in 1664. When he made his will two years before his
death, he was in possession of two house lots of twenty acres each,
namely, the John Moore Lot and Gibson's Hill, which last he purchased
in 1670 of Major Simon Willard. In short, he owned the upland from the
Rowlandson Garrison site to Mrs. Ware's corner. The exact position of
his house is not discovered. He had at least five sons and five
daughters, and those surviving signed an agreement Dec. 2nd 1697, from
which are transcribed these provisions:
"For our sisters' wearing clothes we mutually agree to leave them un-
divided at present, hoping that one of them, namely: either Johanah or
Elizabeth may be yet alive. Also in case that either of our said
sisters shall by God's goodnes be againe Reduced from Captivity, that
then we do farther oblige ourselves as aforesaid to allow & pay unto
either of them that so Returne her portion doubly."
Nathaniel Hudson is signed to a petition to Joseph Dudley, Esq in 1703.

William Hudson, son of Daniel Hudson was born June 12, 1664, in Lancaster.
In 1690 he was prosecuted for bastardy, made a brilliant
but unavailing written defence, and fled, so far as the records show,
never to return. His neighbor, George Newby, about the same date was
convicted of being a libertine, probably a thief, and certainly, what
was perhaps esteemed more unpardonable in those days, a slanderer of
the minister, and a despiser of the catechism. He too disappeared.
They lived on George Hill, perhaps not far from the Divoll place.
Newby lived upon land belonging to Joseph Rowlandson.
