About Andrew Newcomb

Added by E. C. Nickerson about my Great grandfather: Mr. Newcomb's first purchase of land on Martha's Vineyard was made 13 Feb. 1677, of John Daggett, for £25, 10 acresland, "according to the bounds thereat as it was layed out, unto John Freeman, Blacksmith, and to him granted by the said town; as likewise half a Commonage in the said townshippe; for him, the said Andrew Newcomb, to have and to hold the aforesaid land and premisses, with the now dwelling house thereone standing and being, with all and singular the outhouseing banres shoppes hovells fence and fencing stuff on the said land and premisses being." This land situated on the south side of the village, together with a house-lot, he sold Israel Dagget for £40, 3 Feb 1702. May 13, 1686, he bought of Jacob Washaman and Notickquanum (also written Wonnottoohquanam) alias Elizabeth, his wife, Sachem, and Queen of Nunpauquee, for £5, a pice of land called Job's Neck, 22 Jan. 1701-2, to his son, Simon, one of the witnesses to the deed being Peeter Newcomb.

He sold for £22 land at Sanchacantaket, bought of Misam alias Wabamuch; and in 1700 he sold the land, later occupied as a famous camp-meeting ground on Martha's Vineyard. (Vol. 3, p. 320)

In June 1703 he, with others, gave Samuel Holman, the tanner, a lot of land "to encourage him in his business." Mar. 10, 1709-10, Thomas Harlock sold lands bought of "Mr. Andrew Newcomb late deceased." He owned the land in Edgartown upon which the Court House was afterwards built.

Mrs. Newcomb's name is in the earliest preserved list of church members, 13 July 1717; also in the list of 24 Jan 1730-1. She received in 1680, by will of her father dated 4 Feb. 1679-80, £50; also, a three-eights interest in his real estate, which was increased by rights of her sister bought by Mr. Newcomb in 1686. Of the Indian lands of Capt. Bayes Mr. and Mrs. Newcomb owned, in 1688, three and a half shares at Sanchacantaket, near the camp-meeting ground, ten acres at Pompineches neck, and one half-share on the Island of Chappaquiddick. ./ECN/ children: Simeon, Andrew, SIMON (3), Thomas, Sarah, Mary (or Mercy), Peter
