      FIRST GENERATION.

      JOHN EATON,with his wife ANNE and six children, two sons and
      four daughters, is known to have been in Colchester, now Salisbury,
      Mass., as early as "ye 26th of ye 6th mo. 1640," when there were
      granted to him " 2 acres, more or less, for his house lott, lying between
      the house lotts of Mr. Samuel Hall and Ralfe Blesdale," said to be
      about equally distant from the Atlantic and the Merrimack. He
      remained here about six years from the above date, when he removed
      to Haverhill, about fifteen miles up the river where he received a deed
      of land dated Nov. 25, 1646, from Rev. Nathaniel Ward of Ipswich,
      for which he gave "the full sum of twelve pounds of wheate and pipe
      staves, six pounds worth of one and six pounds worth of the other."
      He resided here the remainder of his life. Anne, his wife, died Feb.
      5, 1660. He married for his 2nd wife Mrs. Phebe Dow, Nov. 20,

      1661. He died, testate, Oct. 29, 1668.

      JOHN EATON was a cooper and farmer, and dealt considerably in real
      estate. He was a man of strong will power, tempered by a sound
      practical judgment, who believed in liberty of conscience and tolera-
      tion in society. Endowed with these qualities of mind he was well
      fitted to act a highly useful part in this new country.
      Of his two sons, John and Thomas, John settled in Salisbury and
      became the head of a numerous race which for convenience sake we
      call the SALISBURY BRANCH.

      Thomas settled in Haverhill and became the head of a long line of
      descendants which we call the HAVERHILL BRANCH.

      JOHN and ANNE EATON,it is supposed, were married somewhere in
      England about 1618, as their first child seems to have been born in
      1619. _It is thought that their six children were all born in England,
      though their names are recorded in Salisbury in the following order,
      without date, except the first. The other dates are given by calculation. Gen Sketch of NS Eatons, pg 7.
