8a) Recorded in "History of Marlow,

NH" edited by D. Hamilton Hurd (1886)

"The township of Marlow was granted

on October 7, 1761, to William Noyes and

sixty-three others, at which time it received

it's present name. ...The grantees were residents

of CT, principally in the vicinity of the towns

of Lyme, and Colchester. "At the Province of

New Hampshire, April 26, 1773, County of

Chesire, personally appeared Nicodemus

Miller and Samuel Canfield, Selectmen of

Marlow and made Solomn oath that

the above Inventory by them taken

and signed by them as above is just

and true as there set down taken."

 

8b) Also in the History of Marlow, NH:

There is record of a sworn oath to the court

regarding a land dispute between the towns of

Marlow and Stoddard, Nicodemus signed

as Selectman, along with Abisha Tubbs,

March 4, 1777

 

8c) Nicodemus was a country store owner;

p-321; "The mercantile history of the town (of

Marlow) is a varied one. The first dealer in country

store commodiities was Nicodemus Miller, who

it seems was a merchant in CT, and brought

his stock of goods with him to this town,

though it consisted principally of

Rumbe and melases, (Rum & Molasses)

if we are to believe an old account book."

11) Gazeteer, NH, P 313 states: "It is

reasonable to suppose that very few

of the grantees of the town ever intended

to endure the hardships incident to the

settlement of a new township, for only three,

William Noyes, Samuel Gustin, and

Nehemiah Royce, ever became actual residents.

Some of the proprietors sold their rights

to the Tubbses, Millers, Huntleys, Lewises,

Gees, and Macks, while others, retaining

theirs, realized little, if anything from them.

The first to begin their preparations for a

home in Marlow, were Samuel and John

Gustin, brothers who built their log hut on

the farrm now owned by Willard Lane in

1764-65, the spot being but a short

distance from the pond which bears

their name. Previous to the Spring of 1767,

they were followed by fifteen families, a

portion of whom located as follows; Joseph

Tubbs, on Isaiah Davis's farm, Abisha Tubbs,

where Charles Elliott lives, Nehemiaah Royce

at Lauren Tinker's, Nathan Huntlley,

on Marlow Hill, a few rods East from

M.G. Priests, Eber Lewis, in Rufus Winham's

pasture, West from the Hill, Nicodemus

Miller, where Eli Washburn resides, Samuel

Canfield, on the road leading from G.H.

Priest's to Acworth, Jonathan Royce,

on the Meisser farm, and Solomon

Gee on the Dr. Baker farm."
