    Notes 
    • Paul came with his father to North Yarmouth in 1727 and, in boyhood and youth, bore his share of the hardships incident to a newly settled town in Maine. At the time of their marriage, as it was, in those days, deemed essential that every family should be within reach of a place of refuge from the Indians, the young couple resided a few years in the "Loring Block house," with their brother-in-law, Mr. Solomon Loring, and there their two children Sarah and Cushing were born. Soon after 1745, they chose, for a permanent home, a spot convenient to the Scales garrison, and on it built their one-storied house which was to be the home-nest for their ten children, and which, it is said, never had a room finished off, though the parents were wealthy enough to give each son a hundred acres of land, and each daughter fifty acres. Some of this land is still owned by the heirs of those to whom it was originally given. Their house stood on the site now occupied by the dwelling of the late Capt. Reul Drinkwater. In Aug., 1762, Geo. II, Paul Prince, Yeoman, sold his inheritance, the farm numbered as Lot No. 1, or Prince's Point, to John Drinkwater.
