Who Wrote The Articles Of Agreement Springfield Massachusetts 1636

Two months later, William Pynchon, Henry Smith and Jehu Burr reached an agreement with the Indians to purchase land on both sides of Connecticut. When they signed the deed of sale, the Indians kept them almost everything valued, fishing all over the land, hunting deer, picking up nuts, acorns, Sasachiminesh (Cranberries) and having and enjoying all that cottinackeesh (kitkanakish, planting stock or bottom planted now) were the cultivated fields on which they grew their tobacco. Corn, beans, pumpkins and pumpkins. Records show that in January, February and March 1666, numerous grants were granted for ponds adjacent to land owned by several individuals. In the case of the widow Margaret Bliss, her purse was as much of the pond as at the end of her lot. All of these subsidies were in the long-term prairies and all were made on the condition that the Indians were not unfairly put in place in their pease. Pease was referring to the caneliers, the sasachiminesh, whom they had indeed reserved from 1636. The fellows had cranberry-moore. It appears in the language of the time, a bog was called a pond. The case concerning the claims and the complainants in the area that is now Springfield is confusing and I do not pretend to understand here. The subject would be a long study in itself.

However, as I have read many articles on this subject, it seems that first thought of the new colony at Agawam (like Windsor, Hartford, Wethersfield all river towns) under connecticut`s authority. Mr. Pynchon and Mr. Smith were in the legislative branch of Hartford. Major Pynchon, when he heard the news, immediately brought his soldiers to help, so to speak, but he found his city in ruins. Almost immediately he wrote to the parish priest Mr. Russell, dated Springfield, on October 5, 1675: Since most of the New England settlers were farmers or skilled labourers, they did not earn much money. Although some make more money from fishing and the fur trade. Nor did New England have to spend money on land. In accordance with the article of the Massachusetts Agreement 1636 (doc. E) is supposed to have a share in the plantation or in the meadow.

In addition to getting a good sized house lot, as they suit all the quality. It is a valid document because it was an article that was shared by everyone. This means that no money that goes to the economy with real estate money has been a major problem in the North. Pynchon also had his own scouts who drew recruits from other cities. In 1643 he wrote that the Lord had recently added three or four young men from the river. He has written about Thomas Cooper, John Harmon and Roger Pritchard of the river towns of Windsor, Hartford and Wethersfield. John, Pynchon`s son, went out in search of worthy men to bring him. He wrote in his father`s story: In 1646, Nathaniell Browne came to my fathers on the night of April 21: he came from Hartford. I agreed with him in Hartford for 4, 15s for 6 months, viz, the 6 summer months of the 21st: from Aprill to October 22, 1646. For a time, the Indians lived in peace and indolence and were kept against their own old enemies, the Mohawks. With the English tools they now had, their daily tasks were made much more comfortable. So they lingered where there was good relations with the Whites until 1675.

William Pynchon and his son John had frequent and friendly relations with them in the trade. The Indians sold their beaver and other furs to the Pynchons.
