    Notes:

    "TIMOTHY COVEL. This settler came first to Roseway probably from Cape Cod about the beginning of the war. He undertook to move to Barrington but their vessel was captured by a privateer and he and his family were landed at Cape Negro. [...] ]There they stayed two years and then came to the Hill. The lands left and forfeited by James Bunker for four years had been occupied by him for four years in 1784. The earliest date we can fix for his residence in Barrington is 1776 when he signed a petition to the Mass. Court. His son Timothy settled on Cape Id. at Centreville and afterwards moved to Liverpool, N. S.; Jonathan also lived on Cape Id. near Cook's Point. He was for a time in charge of John Sargent's mill at the Head. He was drowned in 1812, and his brother Timothy died the same year. These were the last of the old race of Quakers who came to Cape Id. The wives of these brothers were daughters of Simeon Gardner, grantee, and they occupied lands granted to their father-in-law."
