Items of interest for further research:
Elisha Clark vs. William Goodwin, 1711. “Maine, York County, Court of Common Pleas records.”

The suit apparently involved Sarah Taylor, brought by Elisha Clark, her husband, against her sister Deliverance Taylor, directed at her husband William Goodwin. The case was concerning the inheritance left by the women’s parents, John Taylor and Martha (_____) Taylor. There are 31 documents in the case.


From Sally Nelson 29 Mar 2019:
“It is now clear that I descend from John Taylor through his daughter Deliverance who married William Goodwin and their daughter Hannah Goodwin who married Etherington Hearl and their daughter Mary Huntress who married Jacob and their daughter Mary (Polly) Lord who married Maturin Abbot. Moses Abbot, son of Polly and Maturin, is my gr great grandfather. Sally Furber Nelson.”

From Sandy Andrews:
“Taylor, John ~ 1650 ~ of Scotland ~ According to “The Scots In Unity” (4/7/2001) John Taylor was among the prisoners taken at the Battle of Dunbar, Scotland, winter of 1650, and transported on the “Unity” to America. They were taken to the Saugus Iron Works to work in the mine there. John and others were removed to Berwick, Maine to work the sawmills there under the direction of Leader. (Mr. Richard Leader, who was engaged to manage the Saugus Ironworks, came to Saugus from England in 1644. Mr. Leader was not successful in Saugus and moved to Maine by March 1650/51). John Taylor had a land grant in Kittery by 1655/6. He was a constable in 1665 and served on Grand Jury in 1671 and 72. In his will, he gave each of his five daughters, 30 acres of land. John died between 1689 & 1690 in Berwick, Maine and his wife, Martha _____, after September 7, 1702 in Berwick, Maine.
This is my John Taylor’s line:
John Taylor b___ Scotland d Between 1689 and 1690 Berwick, Maine; m Martha____ d After September 7, 1702 Berwick, Maine
