"In this work the writer has tried to weave the doings of his ancestors into the skein of contemporary local history and show the part they played in the founding of New England. This was made easy because of the prominent role so many of them played. Original documents were examined by the most skilful genealogists and much hitherto unpublished information brought to light. The genealogical sheets contain more reliable and fuller information than can be found in any other place concerning the familes to which they refer. There are stars attached to certain names. One star represents prominence in the town, two stars represent prominence in the colony, while more than two indicate still greater importance. Of 172 heads of families, 50 have one star, 27 two stars, and 2 have more than two stars.
