      Byrams in America, John Arnold Byram, 1988, page 2,3.
      Both Nicholas and Mary were "first named members" of the Third Church
      of Christ in East Bridgewater and were burried there.
      Nicholas Jr. went iwth his parrents to Bridgewater in 1662. He was
      known as Captain Nicholas Byram and took an active part in the defense
      of the settlement. He also held many postitions of trust in the town
      government. Judge N. Mitchell wrote "Nicholas Byram Jr. was mad a
      freeman of Bridgewater, MA, by the Court of Plymouth May 29, 1670."
      About the Indian fighting Mitchell wrote: "On Monday morning, May 21,
      1676, a company of twenty-one men (including Nicholas Byram Jr.) went
      out supposing to meet Captain Church and his men, but they cam upon
      the enemy (Indians) and fought with them, and took seventeen of them
      alive, alos much plunder, and they all returned and not one of them
      fell by the enemy, and received no help from Captain Church." "There
      was also naother skirmish with the enemy in the south part of the
      town, July 31, 1676, when some of King Phillip's special friends were
      killed, among others his uncle, who fell by his side. John Adams and
      Nicholas Byram Jr. are said to have distinguished themselves on this
      occasion."
      Nicholas refused to take shelter in the blockhouse, but occupied his
      own house, which was some distance from the fort, during the time of
      the King Philip's War.
