Misc. Notes

"In Barnstable in 1640. He was a Mariner, one of the purchasers of Oyster Bay, Long Island in April 1653, and had his vessel seized for intercourse with the Dutch, then our enemies, by Thomas Baxter under a Rhode Island Authority, but obtained restitution with decree for 150 pounds. [Savage 3:188]" Hadaway, Gedcom: pg.05409
In 1647 the town deeded him land for a fishhouse on Crowell's Point, below his house. He owned several ships - fishing smacks, coasters, and ran a picket to Boston, long before Barnstable had her great fleet to make it the busiest Cape Cod port. In 1650 Samuel became master of the bark "Desire," the first important ship to hail from Barnstable. She was swift, and the third vessel built in Massachusetts, built at Marblehead in the summer of 1636, 120 tons. The Desire, under Capt. William Pierce, was the vessel which took Endicott's soldiers to Block Island for the Pequot War.
