Oath of allegiance was given to Thomas Alvord at Northampton, Mass., Feb. 8, 1678. Among the early grants of land upon the town records of Northampton, Mass., the town grants to Thomas Alvord:

"In prim-s a home Lot which is thus bounded; on the south on Mr. Hawleys land being in length 26 rods, bounded on the commons, on the north butting on the Round Hill on the (sequestered land), westerly in breadth at this end 16 rods and 5 1/2 feet, being four acres more or less."

Thomas Alvord was a tailor. His homestead No. 26 was first assigned to William Smead in 1676 and was in the family of Thomas Alvord until 1725. It was the Dr. Hunt place. His widow married 1690 Samuel King (son of John), whom she outlived, and Nov. 26, 1702, married Deliverance Bridgeman. In 1724-5, when her son Thomas Alvord sold the homestead, she, with her husband, Deliverance Bridgeman, relinquished their right. He father, Jophn Taylor, was killed in the present limits of Easthampton, while going to the rescue of those captured in the "Pascommuck Massacre."

Thomas Alvord (son of the above) of Northampton, in consideration of thirty pounds conveyed to Samuel Fairfield of Northampton:

"A certain homestead in Northampton with the buildings thereon; containing by estimation half an acre be it more or less, butted and bounded, Northerly on the street; Westerly on the lane running to the Mill River; Easterly on the homestead of Moses Lymons, running from front to rear about fifteen rods, and lying in a triangular form etc.

"Jan 26, 1724-5 Thomas Alvord and seal.

"I, Deliverance Bridgeman, and Joanna my wife, do relinquish our right and title to Sam-l fairfield of the within mentioned homestead as witness o-r hands ye twenty nigth January 1724/5

Deliverance Bridgman

Joanna Bridgman"

Thomas Alvord fought under Capt. Wm. Turner in the Falls Fight, May 19, 1676. For this service his son Thomas, as his eldest male heir, received from the General Court of Mass. in 1734 a grant of land in Fallstown (now Bernardston), Mass.

The following incident was a tradition in the family of John Alvord, father of Coridon A. Alvord, and is taken from a letter, written by David S. Alvord to his brother and he gives the story as his mother remembered it:

In the attack upon Deerfield he (Thomas Alvord) was a Capt. and acted very heroically in defending against the Indians. After the garrison was nearly famished for water, he went out to a well where he was much exposed and continued to draw water for the garrison until the well-pole was shot off above his hands." (The foregoing may refer to Thoams, Jr.)

An inventory of the estate of Thomas Alvord was presented by Lt. John Taylor, Aug. 10, 1688. It shows a house an dland valued at 50£, pasture land over the river 18£, 2 cows, horse, swine, shears, pressing-iron, lamp, smoothing iron, saddle and bridle, curtains and bedding, slice tongs, hand irons, gun, cutlass, hoes, axes, pewter and brass, 4 chairs and sushion, table, chest, boxes, warming-pan, grid-iron, candlesticks, etc.

Samuel King, who had married the widow, prayed the court that he might have use of the whole estate, that he might bring up the children. Estate was valued at 155£. He was granted the use of the real estate and --£ in moveables for bringing up the three children.
