    Notes 
    • He settled in Stratham, NH, on a farm deeded to him by his father, Nathaniel Ladd, March 28, 1747. He had lived in Stratham but a few years before he sold his farm there and removed to Epping, NH, where he bought a farm leading from Epping Corner (that now is) to Nottingham Square, where he built a log house near a spring, where the road ran at that time. The place has since been known as the Drake farm and is a part of the Nottingham town farm. At or near the commencement of the French and Indian war of 1754, being araid, as tradition says, of hostile Indians, he bought a farm on Red Oak Hill, in Epping NH, (not far from his other place, but in a more thickly settled neighborhood) of Edward Dearborn, of Stratham, NH. The deed is dated 1755. He was a well-to-do farmer, whose education was as good as could be obtained at that time in the common town schools. He was a man of sound and discriminating judgment, and was often consulted by his neighbors and towns-people in times of difficulties, trials and trouble. In religion he was a disciple if Whitefield, at that time called "New Lights" and declined to pay to the Congregationalist a minister's tax, which caused some trouble.
