    Notes:

    That the mother of Elizabeth Robinson who married Nathaniel Whitney was Elizabeth Cutter, daughter of Richard Cutter, was established in 1879 by William R. Cutter (citation details below), when he showed that on 2 Jan 1726/7, Nathaniel and Mary Whitney of Watertown quitclaimed their right in Richard Cutter's estate, being the right of their mother Elizabeth Robinson (alias Cutter) deceased.

    Note that Richard Cutter had another daughter Elizabeth by his second wife; she married Nathaniel Hall of Medford in 1690, and is called "Elizabeth, now Hall" in Richard Cutter's will.

    Michael Roman (citation details below) points out that this Elizabeth Cutter must have died by 1693 as she does not appear in William Robinson's will.

    Notes:

    "The home the Browns used as a residence and inn is located at 562 Main Street, Watertown, MA--adjacent on the east is the Abraham Brown School. Known as the Abraham Brown Jr. House to distinguish the owner from his immigrant grandfather Abraham Browne, the house was built by 1690, and possibly as early as 1663, and an addition made to it in 1729. It remained in the Brown family until 1897, and is currently on the register of the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities. Gothic in construction, the restored house has a pilastered chimney believed to be similar to the original. The original house, the current North Hall, features a very large fireplace with a massive oak lintel, floors and walls of white pine, and ceiling beams of hewn oak. The Hall, used as residence and inn, is currently furnished with a canopied bed, a trestle table, bannister back chairs, and other 17th century furniture and utensils. A unique feature of the house is the use of three part casement window frames duplicated from a frame found during restoration--the earliest example of such a window found in New England."
