The town of Billerica have granted unto Roger Toothaker lyberty to live in ye Towne, and to settle upon and Improve yt lot which his father Ralph Hill, sen., gave him, which Iyeth in the great comon feild on ye East side of Concord River, below ye great bridge; also the Towne do grant him comonage and herbage, wood and timber, for his use," Here he had his home, which was prob.. when built, the extreme northern house in town. It is said to be still standing as the 'ell' of the Rogers house at the place where the canal leaves the river. In 1664. he exchanged about five acres which lay west of the road for twelve acres "lying on both sides, and taking in that long spang of meadow up° the pine plaine, on this side the comon feild, on the East side of it." This exchange was doubtless made to secure to the town the mill privilege for future use. He seems to have practised medicine, and was called 'doctor' at Salem, but our Records do not give the title. In 1682-3, March 12. at a Selectmen's meeting. "Roger Toothaker, being sent for and spoken unto concerning many things amiss in his family, he desired they would exercise a little more patience towards him, and he promised amendm't " But the amendment was not thorough; and 1684, Dec. 15, the Selectmen wrote a letter to him. prob. at Salem, where he seems to have gone, "to come for his wife ye midle of next week, and that they would help away with his family — in case of need and help fit them out." There was "need" enough, but he did not heed it. His wife received charitable aid, and two of his children were put out by the Selectmen to Joseph Walker and Edward Farmer. When the witchcraft trials came, in which his wife's sister, Martha Carrier, suffered, he appears as a ready witness. Abatement of his tax as '"deceased" was made 1694, July.
