      The records of Lyme show that 27 Jan 1730, show that John Harvey, son of Thomasdec'd "records the ear marks of his cattle".

      When he was nineteen years old his mother and step father conveyed to him "inconsideration of our goodwill and natural affection that we bear to our lovingson John Harvey all our right of land in ye 3rd part of ye 4th division of landin said Lyme. To be taken up in land in said division that accrues to us by yerights of Richard Smith Sr., and Richard Smith Jr, and James Smith, all of saidLyme dec'd. unto which said Abigail is heir". These "rights" called for 17and one half acres which were "laid out to John Harvey ye 3rd" 21 April 1735on the West side of Nikerson's Hill. Nickerson's Hill is 485 feet high and isthe highest point in Lyme.

      In Dec 1738 he bought 16 acres on Nickerson' Hill for £35. In Feb 1739 hebought eight more acres for £74. In January 1741 he purchased his brotherRichard's one fifth interest in 60 acres of land at Eight-mile river inheritedfrom their father, for £45.
