    Name Prefix: Capt.
    Mentioned in 1st Settlers of New England by Farmer, he was a Cap
    12/91 From the book "First Settlers of New England" by James Sav
    age; Vol 4, pages 322-3. Trask William, Salem, one of the firs
    t settlers before Endicot, perhaps in 1626. He requested adminis
    tered to freeman 19 Oct. 1630, but was never swore in (that we c
    an find) yet was captain in 1632, representative in 1635, 6, 7
    , and 9, had command in the expedition under Endicott, 1637, aga
    inst the Pequots. For that service his modest petition of 1661
    , is printed in Genealogical Register VI, page 370, and the gran
    t of 400 acres was then added to one of 250, bestowed soon afte
    r the war of 1637. Of his children Sarah was probably eldest; M
    ary, baptized 1 Jan. 1637; Susanna 10 June 1638; William 19
    Sept. 1640; John, 18 Sept. 1642; Elizabeth, 21 Sept. 1645; Ma
    ry, again born 14
    Aug. Baptized 2 Oct. 1652; Ann 14 Apr. baptized 18 June 1654
    ; we are ignorant
    if one mother bore all, but infer that the wife Sarah, perhaps b
    aptized 14 Sept. 1656, named in the will of 15 May 1666, was a s
    econd wife and had brought him the last three; and that the firs
    t Mary, with Elizabeth and Ann were dead before that. He died a
    t the age of 77 years very soon after the will bears date, proba
    bly the next day. Of the daughters we know that Sarah, marrie
    d 13 Oct. 1656, the second Elias Parkman; Susanna, married 19 F
    eb. 1664, Samuel Ebborne, as second wife; and Mary married a Bat
    ter, probably Daniel. See Wm son for the rest.
