In 1635, his son-in-law bought for him a large tract of land in the province of Maine, extrending half way from Piscataqua (Porsmouth, N. H. ) to the Agamenticus river (York, Me.) . This tract of land was named Kittery Point, in memory of the old home in England and Conveyed before 1650 to Nicholas, third son of Alexander Shapliegh.

      With the name of Nicholas Shapliegh that of Adrian Fry appears often on the Kittery, Me, records. He was a Quaker and married Sarah, dau. of John White. His mark with that of his wife often appeared on legal papers from 1664 to 1692. He witnessed a deed in December 7, 1663, was a witness at court in 1667, and had a grant of 100 acresin 1669.
