The land was described as beginning at a stake and heap of stones which was on bounds of his own land, then running northerly about 5 rods to a red oak tree marked on two sides and running still on the low range 6 rods and a half further to a stake and a heap of stones. From there running easterly about 20 rods (by a double red oak and a single red oak) to a rock by the side of the river, then bounded by the river upstream to John Bolton Jr.'s land.

(2nd Son-in-Law) Estate and Land25 September 1730Michael's sister-in-law, Mary Bolton, had died intestate and the settlement and distribution of her real estate was completed on 25 September 1730. Mary's estate was divided into ten equal shares and distributed between her mother, Sarah (Chesebrough) Bolton, and brothers and sisters, John Bolton, Samuel Bolton, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, Elizabeth (Bolton) May, Nicholas Bolton, Elisha Bolton, Joseph Bolton, Nathaniel Bolton, and Abigail Bolton.

A special committee of five freeholders consisting of Joseph Alden, whose land bordered the deceased's, and Joseph Edson, Eleazer Carver, Daniel Hudson and Jonathan Sprague had earlier been appointed by Judge Isaac Winslow on 15 June 1730 to inventory Mary's land and to determine, in their best judgment, an equitable division of her real estate, which they estimated to be 6 acres. Their recommendation, submitted to the court on 10 August 1730 and approved on 21 August 1730, distributed the lands into ten equal shares or lots.

Michael's wife, Elizabeth (Bolton) May, received the lot identified by the committee as the seventh share which contained about 3/4 of an acre of land. It was on the south side of the lot distributed to her older sister, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard. It was bounded at the west end by the lands which contained the Bolton house, beginning at the north-west corner of the house land at a stake and heap of stones standing near an apple tree, and from there ranged north 78 degrees west 31 rods to a stake and heap of stones, and from there ranged south 30 degrees west 5 rods to a stake and heap of stones standing by the highway, and then bounding by the highway 31 rods to a stake and heap of stones standing about 1 rod from the south-west corner of the Bolton house, and from there ranged north 30 degrees east 4 rods and 1/4 to the bounds first mentioned at the north-west corner of the house land.5,6
(2nd Brother-in-Law) Land Records22 February 1730/31 On 22 February 1730/31, Michael May and his wife Elizabeth (Bolton) May, William Leonard and his wife Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, Nicholas Bolton and Joseph Bolton, all of Bridgewater, sold to Jonathan Washburn of Bridgewater, for the sum of £40, the land in Bridgewater they had, a few months earlier, received as heirs in the distribution of their deceased sister Mary Bolton's estate. Josiah Edson and Sarah Edson witnessed the signatures of the Boltons and their husbands on 22 February 1730/31 and the deed was recorded in Plymouth County on 18 May 1761. It described the property as four tenths part of their sister Mary's real estate, being the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh shares as described, with the details of quantity and bounds, in the earlier settlement document for the division of Mary Bolton's estate on file with the Judge of Probate.7
(Brother-in-Law) Land Transfer12 February 1732Joseph Bolton of Bridgewater, in the County of Plymouth in New England, signed a deed agreement on 12 February 1732 to sell a certain piece of land in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, to his brother-in-law Michael May and sister Elizabeth (Bolton) May his Wife, also of Bridgewater, for the sum of One Hundred and Ten Pounds. The deed was witnessed by Samuel Bolton and Nathaniel Bolton, brothers of Joseph Bolton, on 5 Mar 1732 and recorded on 13 Dec 1732. The land was described as containing by estimation twelve acres, be there more or less, bounded as follows: Beginning at a Stake and Heap of Stones by the Highway which is the South Easterly corner and from there bounded Northerly as the fence now stands next to his brother Elisha Bolton's land to a Stake and Heap of Stones by the Side of the Swamp and then running North Easterly to the land of Joseph Alden, and then bounded by the land of Joseph Alden Westerly to the land of John Willis and then bounded by the land of John Willis Southerly to the Highway and then by the Highway to the bounds first mentioned.8
(Brother-in-Law) Land Records10 November 1732Michael May witnessed the signature of his brother-in-law William Leonard on 10 November 1732 when William sold land in Bridgewater to Richard Davenport. The second witness was Ephraim Leonard, whose relationship to William, if any, has not been determined.9
Land Records*5 May 1733Michael May and David Johnson, both of Bridgewater, mutually agreed on a settlement of the bounds between their lands and their agreement was signed by them both and recorded in the town's Purchasers Book on 5 May 1733. The neighbors had a difference of opinion regarding the bounds between the land that joined their property and also adjoined the dwelling house of David Johnson that Thomas Washburn had lived and died in. Their agreement restated the bounds for the record as follows: beginning at a stake and heap of stones standing in the fence between Michael May and another neighbor, Elisha Bolton, a little to the north and west of the house by a large plum tree and running westerly about 4 rods to another stake with stones about it and standing by the trodden way.10
Town Poor2 November 1767The names of Michael May and his wife Elizabeth (Bolton) May appeared separately on a list of paupers at a Town Meeting held in Bridgewater on 2 November 1767.

Passengers Mayflower (The)

Mayflower Passenger*9 November 1620 When the Mayflower departed Plymouth, England on 6 Sep 1620, she was carrying 102 passengers, including three pregnant women. During the voyage one baby, Oceanus Hopkins, was born making a total of 103 passengers. Three days before land was sighted, passenger William Button died, so when the Mayflower arrived at Provincetown Harbor in Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts on 9 November 1620 there were again 102 passengers. A full list of the passengers may be accessed by clicking on the PDF icon at the end of this section and those included in this project so far include adult males John Alden, Francis Cooke and James Chilton, adult females Susanna (Furner) Chilton, young male John Cooke, and young females Priscilla Mullins and Mary Chilton.

During the weeks ahead, while everyone still "lived" on the ship, the men explored the area looking for a place to build their settlement. Another baby, Peregrine (meaning "wanderer") White, son of William and Susannah, was born in America onboard the Mayflower on 20 Nov, the first English child born to the Pilgrims in the New World. The White's servant, Edward Thompson, died on 4 Dec, followed shortly by 7 year old Jasper More, one of the four illegitimate children placed on the Mayflower in the care of the William Brewster family by their mother's humiliated husband. Two of the other More children died as well. And, tragically, Dorothy May Bradford, William Bradford's wife, slipped over the side of the anchored Mayflower and drowned. In early December the group decided to move the ship and look somewhere else for a settlement location. The ship and its passengers left Provincetown Harbor on 15 Dec. Two days later on 17 Dec, the Mayflower dropped anchor at Plymouth Harbor and on 21 Dec the first landing party arrived at the site of what would become the settlement of Plymouth. The weather, however, was so terrible they could not begin work on shore for several days. In the meantime, the Mayflower had become a hospital ship, the passengers suffering from colds, coughs, fevers and scurvy. James Chilton had died even before the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth Harbor. Richard Britteridge passed away the day the ship arrived, and two days later Solomon Prower, the stepson of Christopher Martin, the ship's designated "governor", died. The following day Mary Allerton gave birth to a stillborn son.

By the end of January 1621, enough of the settlement had been built to begin unloading provisions from the Mayflower, however the emigrants' ordeal was far from over. With two and sometimes three people dying a day during February and March, almost everyone had lost a loved one. Christopher Martin died in early January, his wife Mary soon after. The Rigsdale, Tinker and Turner families were completely wiped out, followed by Susannah Chilton whose husband James had died while the ship was at Provincetown Harbor. The Chilton's 13 year old daughter Mary had become an orphan. Also orphaned that first winter were 17 year old Joseph Rogers, 12 year old Samuel Fuller, 18 year old John Crackston, 17 year old Priscilla Mullins and 13 year old Elizabeth Tilley, who also lost her aunt and uncle, Edward and Ann Tilley. By mid-March, William Bradford, Myles Standish, Francis Eaton and Isaac Allerton, who had three children between the ages of eight and four, had all become widowers. When William White died, his widow Susannah was left with their newborn son Peregrine and 5 year old Resolved. Susannah was the plantation's only surviving widow. By that first spring, 52 of the 102 who had originally arrived at Provincetown were dead. Half, however, survived. And, miraculously, the families of William Brewster, Francis Cooke, Stephen Hopkins and John Billington were completely untouched by all the disease. The remaining "Pilgrims" worked, prayed and fought together and their settlement of Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth Colony had begun.1,2,3

Signers Mayflower Compact

Mayflower Compact*11 November 1620Francis Cooke, James Chilton, John Alden and George Soule were among the 41 passengers who composed and signed the Mayflower Compact on 11 November 1620 while still aboard the Mayflower after arriving and anchoring in what is now Provincetown Harbor, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). All 41 of the adult male members on the Mayflower signed the Compact. It outlined the first written laws for the new land, determined authority within the settlement and was observed as "the law" until 1691. The Compact established that the colony of mostly persecuted Separatists was to be free of English law. It was devised to set up a government from within themselves and was written by those to be governed. When creating the Mayflower Compact, the signers believed that covenants were not only to be honored between God and man, but also between each other. They had always honored covenants as part of their righteous integrity and agreed to be bound by this same principle with the Compact. John Adams and many historians have referred to the Mayflower Compact as the foundation of the U.S. Constitution written more than 150 later.1,2,3

The deed began by outlining the Hinds family's history with the lands, reciting first that Walter Hinds, formerly of Corrakane in the county of Cavan, was seized in fee of and in the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy previous to the year 1770, and that, being so seized, had conveyed the lands to his son Thomas Hinds as a child's portion in the marriage settlement agreement he made in August 1770 with Alexander Slator of Whitehill, County Longford, father of Thomas' wife Anne (Slator) Hinds. And reciting that, as a part of that agreement, after the death of Thomas, his widow Anne was to receive a jointure of £50 a year payable out of the lands. The agreement also directed that, after the death of Thomas, the lands should descend to his male issue and that, after the death of his widow Anne, her jointure should revert to the couple's male issue. The agreement also permitted Thomas, at any time he thought proper, to raise the sum of £1000 as a portion for each of his younger children, whether males or females.

The 1821 deed then recited that the marriage between Thomas Hinds and Anne Slator was duly had and solemnized and that Thomas entered into possession of the lands and remained seized thereof until the time of his death. It recited that he died in 1794 leaving Anne Hinds otherwise Slator his widow, also since deceased, and seven children of the marriage, namely Walter Hinds, his eldest son and heir at law, Alexander Hinds, his second son since deceased, Thomas Hinds, his third son since deceased, Isaac Hinds, Martha Warner, now the wife of George Warner, Elizabeth Kennedy and Mary Hinds. It recited that previous to his death, Thomas Hinds duly made and published his last will and testament whereby he left to his eldest son Walter the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy, and to each of his six younger children the sum of £1000. His will had appointed his wife Anne Hinds, his son-in-law George Warner, and his second son Alexander Hinds his executors.

The 1821 deed next recited that Thomas Hinds the younger was also dead, having first duly made his will whereof he appointed his wife Anne McCluskey his executrix, and that his second son Alexander Hinds was also dead but, previous to his death, had duly made and published his last will and testament by which he appointed his mother, Anne Hinds the elder, his sole executrix, and that Anne Hinds the elder was also deceased and that she had by her last will appointed her son Isaac Hinds her sole executor. The death of Mary Hinds, another of the children of Thomas and Anne Hinds the elder, was also recited, with the statement that her brother Isaac had obtained letters of administration for all of her properties.

The 1821 deed went on to recite that Walter Hinds, upon the death of his father Thomas, entered into possession of the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy and that by deeds of lease and release, followed by a deed of common recovery, both in 1795, had become seized in his demesne, as of fee, of and in the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy. And that being so thereof seized, he duly made and published his last will and testament whereby he gave and bequeathed to his wife Anne Hinds and his brother-in-law George Warner, as trustees, the said towns and lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy. To hold the same unto the said George Warner and Anne Hinds and the survivor of them and the heirs of such survivor forever subject to his just debts and chargeables as therein mentioned upon trust to levy and pay out of said lands unto his widow Anne Hinds a sum of £50 and also one annuity of £100 in lieu of all dower and the will gave his son George Hinds the sum of £1500 payable as therein mentioned and to any other child he might have by his wife Anne the sum of £1000 provided however that if he should have such other child, his son George should only be paid a sum of £1000 instead of the legacy of £1500 and subject to such annuity and legacies the will directed his trustees should stand seized and possessed of such lands for and to the use of his eldest son Walter Hinds Esq., party to the indenture of release first herein mentioned, his heirs and assigns forever, and of his said will he appointed his wife Anne (Hinds) Hinds and George Warner executors and died leaving his widow Anne and three children, namely Walter Hinds Esq., his eldest son and heir at law, George Hinds, and Martha Hinds. And then also reciting the death of Martha Hinds intestate and unmarried and that Walter Hinds, her brother, had obtained letters of administration of her goods and chattels, and also reciting that the said George Warner in right of his wife Martha Warner, otherwise Hinds, the said Isaac Hinds in his own right, and also as executor of the said Alexander Hinds, and also as administrator of the said Mary Hinds, the said Anne McCluskey and executrix of Thomas Hinds Junior, and the said Samuel Kennedy and Elizabeth Kennedy his wife , parties to the said first mentioned indenture of release were under the marriage articles of the first day of August 1770 and the will of the said Thomas Hinds, entitled to what remained of the said sum of £1000, and which then amounted to a sum of £769,12s,6p, and that the said George Hinds was then entitled to the sum of £1500 for principal and interest on the sum of £1000 bequeathed to him by his father the said Walter Hinds, and that there was nothing due to Walter Hinds the younger as administrator of his sister Martha Hinds, of her legacy of £1000.

Finally, after reviewing all of the pertinent past history regarding the family and the lands, the 1821 deed recited that Robert Burrowes, late of Bolton Street in the county of Middlesex, England, deceased, by his last will and testament in writing, directed the residue of his fortune to be laid out in lands, as contiguous as practicable, to Stradone in the county of Cavan and he appointed Thomas Burrowes, Arnold Robinson Burrowes and John Woolmore his executors.
