286 HISTORY OF DURHAM

WILLIAMS.

Thomas Williams came from England, Feb. i8, 1717, "when
gooseberries were in blow," and reached Boston, April 17, 1717,
'"when the snow was very deep." He was employed in teaching
Latin in Boston, and subsequently removed to the part of
Georgetown that is now Bath. It is said that he was a physi-
cian, and that he often expressed his regrets at having ever left
England.

The above is cited from Wheeler's History of Brunswick,
p. 757. "Thomas Williams lived at Winnegance in 1729, and
remaining there became the first permanent settler of Bath." So
says Reed's Hist, of Bath, p. 23. He seems to have had sons
Thomas, who married in 1746 Margaret Drummond; George,
who signed a petition for a new parish in Georgetown in 1753,
which parish was afterwards Bath ; and Samuel. Perhaps there
were others. A daughter married James Hunter of Topsham.
Thomas Williams was Lieut, of Georgetown Militia in 1757.

Samuel Williams married (Int. Rec. 14 Sept. 1754) Mercy,
dau. of Anthony Coombs who lived on lot 28 in Brunswick.
This was probably the Anthony Coombs who married in 1722
Mercy Hodgkins in Gloucester, Mass. He migrated to Fal-
mouth and thence to New Meadows, Brunswick in 1739. Sam-
uel Williams bought, in 1761, parts of lots 20 and 7 on Sebascod-
igan or Great Island, Harpswell. He was living at " Duck
Cove" in 1799. It seems that he died soon after. He had chil-
dren, Samuel, Jr., who lived on the Island ; Benjamin, Daniel
and Peter, who all moved to Thomaston ; and George, who
settled in Durham. There were also several daughters. Mercy
Williams, wife of Samuel, Senr., died in Thomaston Sept. 1824,
aged 94 yrs.

Samuel Williams was a private in Capt. James Curtis' Co.;
enlisting 10 June 1775 and serving two months and four days.
He reenlisted 9 Aug. 1775 and served five months and five days.
A Samuel Williams of Harpswell was Sergeant in Capt. Nathan-
iel Larrabee's Co., enlisting 9 July 1775 and serving six months
and seven days. These were probably father and son.

George Williams, born in Harpswell 3 Aug. 1777, married
Mabel, dau. of Noah Litchfield of South Lewiston. Noah Litch-
field was born in Scituate, Mass.. 24 Jan. 1753. He married 9
July 1778 Mabel Wade of Scituate, born 9 June 1758. He was
