About Nathaniel Church, I

Elizabeth Soule and Nathaniel Church were fined five pounds on March 3, 1663, for fornication. On October 5,1663, Elizabeth sued Nathaniel for 200 pounds for failing to marry her but the court awarded her only 10 pounds. -------------------- Nathaniel Church settled what was then Scituate (now Norwell) in 1666. His farm was on the North River, south of Cornet Stetson's, and included the "Bald Hills." His house stood by the river, nearly opposite Job's Landing. Job's Landing was reached from Water St. in Pembroke at the home for many years of the Ware family, which places the Church site not far from Till Rock. Most likely, any remains of the original site were disturbed when Barque Hill was developed, though it is possible that the 2 acres preserved with Rose Cottage may include the site. He was a younger brother of Col. Benjamin Church, the noted hero of the Indian wars. Nathaniel had sons: Nathaniel, Joseph and Caleb, whose descendants lived in Hanover and Marshfield. Nathaniel, the shipbuilder, died in 1700. Ref: The National Cyclopaedia of American Biography. Volume XIII.
