"Tithing-men, in Massachusetts, were first ordered in 1677. Hadley selectmen chose four, and they were approved by the County Court, in March, 1678, viz., Timothy Nash, Samuel Moody, Samuel Church, Chileab Smith. After 1680, they were chosen by the town, four for some years, and then only two. They were to inspect the conduct of liquor-sellers, Sabbath-breakers, night-walkers, tipplers, &c. and present the names of the disorderly to a magistrate. Surveyors of Highways were first chosen Jan. 27, 1663, viz., Edward Church and Chileab Smith, east side, and Nathaniel Dickinson, Jr., west side. After the town was divided, only two were chosen, one from the north and one from the south part of the village. " The History of Hadley, Massachusetts, by Sylvester Judd, 1860
