About John Twisden

Spencer’s :Pioneer on Maine Rivers, 1930 p 140:

Early settlers who bought lots of Edward Godfrey on the easter side of Scituate path were Joseph Jenks, Abrahm Preble, Thomas Chambers, Richard Banks, John Twisden and Henry Simpson in the order named. All except the last came from Scituate Mass. This would be about where York Village is now, on the path from York Harbor to Point Christian, which is now the same highway.

p 145 “Twisden, John, born 1610, planter at Scituate 1638-1640; York 1640-8, died 1680, widow Susanna; children John born 1634, and Samuel.” [Dates are not plausible, if born 1610, married at age 10, child born age 14 !]
