About Henry Travers

According to "Ould Newbury": Historical and Biographical Sketches by John J. Currier (Boston: Damrell and Upham, 1896) page 102:

"In consideration of Henry Travers receiving a house lot at the new town on South Street and Merrimack, he resigned up into the Town's hand his house lot at the old town upon the little hill.

    "In his will, dated July 26, 1648, Henry Travers says: --
   '' "Having occasion to go to sea and know not whether I shall live to come again'', I do by this present declare my last will and testament as followeth: to my Son James my house and half acre lot and my four acre lot at New town and my division land and my eight acres of salt marsh, etc.
    "Evidently, Henry Travers did not return to Newury. His will was probated, and an inventory of his estate taken July 15, 1659. "A house and four acres of land with the orchard and eight acres of marsh land and eight acres of divident land with privelege of commonage" are mentioned in the appraisal. [In October of 1659] Richard Window, of Gloucester, and his wife Bridget, widow and executrix of Henry Travers, deceased, conveyed to Nicholas Wallington, of Newbury, "four acres, formerly land of said Travers, bounded with the street going to Merrimack on the east, and the South Street on the South, and Richard Brown's land on the west, and Tristram Coffin's on the north, with the house thereon" (Ipswich Deeds, book 2, leaf 12 (21)."
