way leading to the mouth of the Woodbridge Creek being shut up, and not
being legally vacated, the surveyors of the highways reopened it, in 1799,
to the width of six rods, as it was laid out Feb. 8th, 1668. The survey
which we give above (1725) was, therefore, illegal. The survey of 1799,
which restored the road to its original width, will be found recorded in
Road Book, pages 53 and 54.
