    Notes 
    • Ezra was made "freeman" in Dorchester, Ma, in 1666 and lived there for
      a few years after the death of his father in 1665. His father left him
      land which was situated in Milton, MA, which had been incorporated as
      a separate town 7 May 1662. Milton previously constituted a part of
      Dorchester, which embraced within its limits the present towns of
      Stoughton, Canton, Sharon, and parts of Wrentham and Foxborough. Ezra
      and his family moved to his inherited land in Milton perhaps as early
      as 1667 and joined the church which was established there in 1678.
      About 1712, he built a mill on Neponset River at the request of some
      of his neighbors. This project was beneficial to the town and he was
      granted as much water from the River as was needed for his mill.
      Ezra and his first wife Abigail (Pond) Clapp had seven children, all
      born in Milton, MA:
