In 1669 he was chosen by the selectmen ‘to keep an ordinary, and to sell sack and strong water in the town of Hingham by retail, and also to be considered to the County Court for their approbation thereto.’ Nathaniel and Martha resided on South St. opposite Thaxter’s Bridge.

  4. Mary Beal (21 Feb 1652/3-)

  9. Susanna Beal (3 Mar 1664/5-22 Jun 1689)
  10. Sarah Beal (ca 1667-)

Some family genealogist have Nathaniel's mother as John Beal's first wife Francis Ripley (vs. Nazareth Hobart) who was born or bapt. 4-15-1584 at Wramplingham, and who m. to John Beal on 6-11-1616 at Wymondham, Norfolk, England and who died (supposedly) 3-16-1630 at Wymondham. This would seem more likely as there are some who say John m. Nazareth (Hobart) Turner in July of 1630 at Hingham, Norfolk, England.
