  • Notes 
    • "John Waldron is spoken of in John Heard's Will as 'my prentice.' When a boy, he was taken in an 'unfair' manner from a seaport in England, by a 'seafaring man named Heard,' doubtless John Heard, with whom he lived at Dover. He used to drive the cows past the house of Mrs. Mary Home (not the widow of William, killed in Dover by the Indians, in 1689, as is some times stated), granddaughter of John Heard, who lived on the 'upper factory road,' a mile above the falls, where Stephen Palmer (who married, in Dover, 24 April 1825, Abigail Home) lately lived; from whom he received many kindnesses, which were continued until he became a man, and finally her husband. It was said that he was a distant relative of Major Richard Waldron, who was killed in 1689, but nothing is known of such a connection. His wife was Mary, daughter of John and Mary (Heard) Ham; she was born 2 October 1668; married, 1st, 30 June 1686, John Home, who was probably the John Home who was the son of William Home killed in the massacre of 1689; and 2d, 29 August 1698, John Waldron. John Waldron's Will, made 12 May 1740, was proved 30 July following." [The Wentworth Genealogy]
