    • THE HARVEY BOOK

      (57) JOHN HARVEY5 (John,4 Thomas,3 Thomas,2 Thomas1). He was born about 1716 at Taunton. Residing there in 1735, and designated as "Lieutenant," he became one of the original proprietors of "Township No. 1," or New Taunton. [See page 45 ante.] In 1736 he was actively engaged in laying out and "lotting" the new township; and in 1739 and again in 1740 and '41 he was elected Treasurer of the company of proprietors. At a meeting of the proprietors held at Taunton in December, 1740, an "allowance of "10 is granted to Lieut. John Harvey for work done towards improving his lot in 1739." In the Autumn of 1741 he acted as moderator of a meeting of the proprietors, and was appointed one of a committee to survey the township lands.

      In April, 1779, being then "Captain," he was, with six other citizens of Taunton, "chosen a committee to hire for sd. town as reesonably as may be, the men for the Continental or State Service that the Town or Several Captins or Commanders of Companies, Shall be called upon to Raise for ye futer."

      At the annual meeting this year the following was passed : "Whereas Mr. John Harvey and others, inhabitants of Swanzey, have requested said town that they would vote that they and their lands may be annexed to the town of Marlborough, representing that they live much more convenient to Marlborough meeting-house than to Swanzey, etc., the town having considered the said request, think the same to be reasonable ; therefore voted that Messrs. John Harvey, Kimber Har-
      ve}^ and Samuel Stearns, and the land whereon they dAvell, and the land belonging to Mr. Timothy Harvey be set off from the town of Swanzey and annexed to the town of Marlborough ; said tract of land lies in the northeastwardly part of said Swanzey, and is the most northwardly part of that gore of land which was set off from Richmond to Swanzey ; and is bounded as follows : viz. : Beginning at a heap of stones, being the southeast corner of the town of Keene, then runs on said Keene west 8 degrees north, 32 rods to the old corner of Swanzey ; then runs south 34 degrees west on Swanzey's old line, 418
      rods to a white pine tree ; then runs east 20 degrees 30 minutes south on common land 2 1 2 rods to a stake and stones in the patent line ; then runs on the patent line north 9 degrees 30 minutes east 418 rods to the first mentioned corner ; containing tliree hundred and five acres."
