married John Skidmore
born about 1602 in Holt, Norfolk Co., England, died 13 November 1692 in
Weymouth, Norfolk Co., Massachusetts; married Ruth
in 1625, who died in 1662. John was one of the earliest settlers
of Weymouth, Massachusetts, and was made a freeman of the Massachusetts
Bay Colony on 13 March 1638-39, and a town officer of Weymouth in 1643.
In 1645 he was appointed an Ensign by the Governor and was probably the
first military officerin Weymouth.
On 14 May 1645 he was made magistrate of the town, or commissioner to end
small causes, as the office was termed. He was also deacon of the church
probably from its foundation until his death 13 November 1692. He was likely
near 90 yrs old when he died, as the youngest of his 9 children was born
in 1646, the eldest in 1629, while some of his daughters may have been
older. It is thought he was married in England about 1625. The family did
not follow him to Weymouth until 1641. The fact that Zachariah and Robert
came in 1635 makes it probable that John came also in that year.
John owned and lived upon a farm adjoining the north side of the highway
near the town center, the farm until 1830 was owned by a descendant. He
had many grants of land and by this and purchase became one of the largest
land owners in the town. He held the office of Ensign until 16 March 1680.
On 15 May 1664 he was appointed a messenger to the Indians and held other
positions of trust in the colony.
