  • Notes 
    • "Came to Lynn in 1630, freeman 7 Sep 1638, removed to Reading 1644. Nicholas lived in Lynn ten years during which time he was the representative to the General Court from Lynn." [Pane-Joyce Genealogy, citation details below.]

      Differing slightly, Marcia Wiswall Lindberg (citation details below) says "[H]e probably came about 1637 with his wife and three small children. Alonzo Lewis, in his History of Lynn (Lynn, 1890), 119, has Nicholas in Lynn in 1630, but the first official record is on 13 Mar 1638 when he was one of the 100 settlers who received allotments of land in the 'six-mile grant.'"
