Notes

  • See article by John T. Hassam, "Some of the Descendants of William Hilton," New England Historical and Genealogical Register (Vol. 31, 1877, Pages 184).

This William Hilton is described as being a mariner. In a deposition by Major JohnDavess and Capt. Charles Frost, dated 30 May 1683, William Hilton is called the son of William Hilton, Senior, who "formerly lived in Yorke abo[ ] on ye Tract of Land, ye lyeth on the South, or South West side of ye River [ ] yorke over against the fishing flakes, & next the Ferry." Noyes, Libby & Davis, in their "Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire," indicate that he grew up with his stepfather, William White, without benefit of education. He was sued by Captain Francis Raynes in 1675, with judgment for the defendant. He wasin King Philip's War, in November 1677, and went on a looting expedition to "Cape Porpus." He had a grant of land from the town of York, ME on 25 Aug 1679 and another, which is not dated, "upon the neck of Land on the South Side of York River, between Arthur Bales Land, & major Shapleights, and James Wiggens &William mores Land, & the Land that was formerly mr William Hiltons, providedit be free from any mans propriety or former grant." He was one of the 46 menwho took the oath of allegience to the King on 22 Mar 1680. Another grant of land was made to him on 18 Mar 1695/6. He died between March, 1699, and June, 1700, leaving a widow Ann or Anne. In 1700 she was living on the homestead "between Thos. Trafton's and the Harbor's Mouth," land formerly called Inglesby's Point, later Hilton's Point.
