  • Notes 
    • PETER GOULDING was of Boston, in 1665. He acted as an attorney in the Court of Sessions. He was prosecuted and fined for charges that he had divulged against the Court and clerk of Suffolk County. The occurrence not improbably disgusted him into a resolve to remove from Boston. A second attempt to settle Quinsigamond (Worcester) was undertaken in 1683. Besides his town right, which he purchased of Thomas Hall, he owned 3,020 acres in Hassanamesit, which were valued at only £4. In 1694, when the settlement of Worcester was broken up, he removed to Sudbury, and died there in 1703. [History of Grafton, pg. 492]

      "He was a lawyer of ability. Although neither a Churchman nor Puritan he was held in high esteem by his fellow citizens. His handwriting, probably acquired in some English school, was "most Beautiful." [From Historic Homes and Institutions, pg. 152]
