    Notes 


    • "On 27 Dec 1782 William was bequeathed 7 acres of York land "next to Deborah's land" by his maternal grandfather William Dunning. William later sold this parcel to Samuel Baker Fairfax husbandman 7 Jun 1810 for $75 when William was styled "of a place called Amos Town (Ames Town) in the County of Summersett(Somerset)". Ames Town was the former name of Sangerville, which was also known as "Number Four, Sixth Range". Samuel Baker was married to Deborah Farnum (Zebedian, Daniel, Ralph3, Ralph2,Ralph1st, Henry) who was Williams' 2nd cousin. Their respective grandfather's Ralph(4) and Daniel(4) Farnum were brothers and progenitors of the Farnums in Maine. The property in York was descrbed as on the road leading from "Sewall's Bridge so called to Portmouth Ferry" and was bounded by land of "David & Timothy Baker and nearly opposite to dwelling house of said Farnham's mothers.... being the same land.... given William Farnham, by William Dunning of York deceased". Witnesses were Henry and Ralph Baker to the deed signed by William and Hannah. A week later William deposed before Abrm Burrell, JP at Kennebeck 13 Jun 1810 (but not Hannah) that the instrument was his own and free act and deed [Rec: 23 Jun 1810]
