      CARE OF COWS AND CALVES

      An arrangement somewhat different from the one heretofore noticed was made in 1648, about the care of the cows and calves for the season. For convenience, the cows were to be pastured in two separate herds nearly equal, with two keepers to each herd. John Cass, for himself and Isaac Perkins, agreed with the selectmen, carefully to keep one of the herds, or one-half of the cows in the town, from the 18th of April till a fortnight after Michaelmas, or near the middle of October. The keepers were to go in the morning, to the fall-gate near Robert Tuck?s, about half an hour after sunrise, to take charge of the cows, on all days except the Sabbath, and they were also to have the care of them every third Sabbath. For the performance of this service, the selectmen agreed that they should receive ??15 10s.

      In payment, they were to have one pound of butter for each cow in the herd, at 6d. per pound. One half of the remainder was to be paid in wheat, to be delivered the next September, at 4s. 6d. per bushel; and the rest in the following February, in Indian corn, at 3s. 6d. per bushel. In the case of a failure, on the part of any owners, to pay their proportion in due season, it was stipulated that they should pay the keepers 6d. per week, smart money, till be debt should be cancelled.

      The commission for the new government was passed, September 18, 1679;?in an act, ?which inhibits and restrains the jurisdiction exercised by the colony of Massachusetts over the towns of Portsmouth, Dover, Exeter and Hampton, and all other lands extending from three miles to the northward of the Merrimack River or any part thereof unto the province of Maine.? New Hampshire was created a Royal Province, to be governed by a president and council. . . .

      Having completed the organization, a proclamation was made, for all officers to keep their respective places till further ordered. Shortly after (February 4, 1680), a warrant was sent to the selectmen of each of the towns, requiring that a list of the names of their inhabitants and inventory of their estates be sent to the president and council at their sitting on the 16th of the same month.

      Being required by their commission, to call a General Assembly, and being empowered to determine who should have the privilege of choosing deputies, the president and council ordered: ?that the persons hereafter named in the several towns shall meet together on the first day of March next, by 9 of the clock in the morning, and having first each of them taken the oath of allegiance (if they have not taken it already), which oath is to be administered by the member or members of the said Council there residing, choose from among themselves, by the major vote given in writing, not exceeding the number of three persons, which persons so chosen are to appear at Portsmouth on the 16th day of March following, by 9 o?clock, there to attend his Majesty?s service for the concerns of the said Province of New Hampshire, provided that we do not intend that what is now done be precedential for the future, and that it shall extend no farther than to the calling this first Assembly.? None were to be permitted to vote except those mentioned in the list appended to the order, on penalty of paying a fine of five pounds.

      A farm, lying in the south part of the town, near Salisbury, was granted to Mr. Dalton?s son, Timothy Dalton, Jr., who died soon after, when the farm came into his father?s possession, and, on the 21st of January, 1652, was confirmed to him by a vote of the town. This act of the town, however, was based on the following condition: ?that Mr. Dalton should free and discharge the town of Hampton from all debts and dues for his ministry till he had a set pay given him by the town.? To this Mr. Dalton agreed, and a release was executed accordingly, five days after the confirmation of the last grant. In June, of the same year, this farm was sold to Isaac Perkins.

      . . . Mr. Cotton (the reverend of Hampton) has left a list of members in full communion on the 18th of September, 1671. The whole number at that time was 68, 30 males, and 38 females. The list is subjoined:

      PERKINS.

      A few months after the settlement of the town, there were living in Hampton, two men of the name of Perkins, with their families.

      According to tradition, these men, Abraham and Isaac, were brothers?which is very probable, though we may not be able to verify it. They appear to have come at nearly the same time, and the house-lots, assigned to them by the town, adjoined each other, each containing five acres. Isaac's house was on nearly the site of the Baptist parsonage, and Abraham's between that and the corner lot west-ward, which then belonged to William English. . . .

      II. ISAAC PERKINS lived for more than ten years where he first settled. In June, 1652, Rev. Timothy Dalton sold to him, for fifty pounds, his farm (granted first to his son, who died,) lying next Salisbury line (in Seabrook); and Perkins probably removed thither soon after. He died Nov., 1685. His wife's name was Susanna. Their children:
