notes

10 (3:3) The earliest Greenwood to settle in New England was Nathaniel. He was from Norwich, Eng., and was a son of Miles Greenwood, a worsted weaver of Norwich, where he was baptized at the chapel of St. Michael-at-Pleas, Aug. 23, 1631. He came to this country as early as 1654, then 23 years of age, and on Jan. 24, 1655, at Weymouth, Mass., m. Mary, the daughter of Samuel Allen of Braintree, Mass. He engaged in ship building in Boston, Mass., and for 30 years successfully pursued that occupation, his death occurring, as appears from his tombstone now standing in Copp's Hill Cemetery, Boston, July 31, 1684, aged 53. He left a widow and three children and considerable property.
