In 1635, Nicholas Danforth bought landed property in Cam- bridge from at least five different landowners. He resided on what is now called Bow Street, near Mount Auburn Street. He became a Representative to the General Court in 1635; he assisted in laying out the boundaries of Roxbury, Dedham and Dorchester, and when Harvard College was inaugurated at Cambridge, Mr. Danforth was elected, Nov. 20, 1637, as one of the Inaugura- tion Committee. He died in 1638. His wife had preceded him in death in 1628. He had at least four sons and daughters, for we know that Andrew Belcher married Elizabeth Danforth on Oct. 1, 1639, and that Anne Danforth married Matthew Bridge, Jan. 19, 1643. Anne Danforth was born in England, about 1622, as was her husband; she was baptized in Framlingham, England, Sept. 3, SECOND GENERATION 5 1622; died in Cambridge, Mass., Dec. 9, 1704, aged 82 years. For the last thirty years of her life, she resided with her husband in Lexington, Mass., where he became a leading citizen. Her children and grandchildren became eminent in their several spheres and also in their marriages. Nicholas Danforth, son of Thomas, and grandson of Thomas, father of a distinguished line, and himself an honored man, came from Framlingham, England, County of Suffolk, in 1634. His wife, Elizabeth Symmes, died at her English home on Feb. 22, 1629. She was the daughter of Rev. William Symmes, whose father William, with his wife, suffered during Queen Mary's reign. Her brother. Rev. Zechariah Symmes, came over in 1634, and was settled in Charlestown. For these facts concerning Mrs. Danforth and her parents, the editor is indebted to the "Genealogy of the Danforth Family," published in 1902, which gives a complete history of that dis- tinguished family.
