About Nathaniel Perry

Nathaniel evidently lived in Easton on land given Mehitable by her father. In April 1740 for £269 he sold Johnson Tolman of Dorchester 140 acres of land in Stoughton (lot 39, 25th Division); on 29 August 1740, for £181, he bought from Eliakim Perry, administrator of the estate of Thomas Tupper, deceased, 141 acres in Stoughton. On the same date, he sold to his brother Josiah his third of the 386 acres the three brothers had purchased jointly from their father. On 9 September 1740 Nathaniel and Josiah Perry jointly mortgaged the Stoughton land; Nathaniel purchased this land from Josiah on 20 November 1740. On 17 November 1744, Nathaniel purchased land in Easton from Ezekial Titus and Patience, his wife. On 8 November 1748, he bought land in Easton from Samuel and Abigail Pollard of Taunton. On 1 January 1750, "Nathaniel Perry of Easton" sold land in Norton to Mehitable Smith of Norton; in the same year, he bought land in Easton from Samuel Pollard of Taunton and Henry Hix of Middleborough. On 31 October 1752, he sold land in Taunton to Hezekiah Smith of Easton. Nathaniel Perry of Easton received his commission as Captain of the militia under Colonel John Winslow on 6 November 1742. On 6 November 1754, he had a company of 46 enlisted men and the next month received a warrant for further enlistments. On 29 May 1755 he raised a company of 96 men (2d Battalion, Governor Shirley's Regiment) for "removing the French encroachments from His Majesty's Government of Nova Scotia." He died in Nova Scotia in 1757. A letter from Nathaniel to his wife, dated Fort Cumberland, Nova Scotia, 25 June 1755, and other details regarding him may be found in Chaffin's History of the Town of Easton (1886).
