    Notes 
    • Greenfield, a mariner, was prosecuted in Cumberland County court in Oct 1764 for sailing his schooner out of Falmouth harbor on Sunday 2 Sep 1764, the Lord's Day. This angered him so that he dismantled his house and transported it on his ship to Wolf's Neck, Freeport where it stands today. [Cumberland County Commissioner's Report 1:81; Portland Sunday Telegram, Mar 23, 1913].
