Misc. Notes
According to the Dodge Genealogy,716 Capt. William Dodge was “born 1640; dies 1720. Lived in Beverly, was a malster. Inherited his father’s homestead. Deputy in 1689, overseer in 1679, freeman in 1683, Representative in 1690. In 1674, September 29th, helps make inventory of estate of Lot Conant (born 1624). In 1675 he was engaged against the Narragansetts, and acquired distinction for courage and skill. Hubbard, in his narrative, gives a particular account of his bravery and success. In this expedition, Josiah Dodge, perhaps brother of Capt. William, Peter Woodberry and John Balch, were killed at Muddy Brook, under Capt. Lathrop. In the historic controversy about the bell of Bass River Church (First Church of Beverly), which was captured at Port Royal in 1654, William Dodge, Jr., and Thomas Tuck, Sr., with military spirit, took the bell and put it to its intended use. He married 1st, Mary (Conant), widow of John Balch (drowned). He married 2d, 26th May, 1685, widow Joanna Larkin, daughter of Dea. Robert Hale, of Charlestown, who died 18th August, 1694, aged 47. He married 3d, in 1698, Mary Creatty, who died about 1st February, 1701-2. She was widow of Capt. Andrew Creatty of Marblehead. Her will was dated 23d January, 1701-2.” A chronology of more than fifty events in the life of William Dodge, compiled by John I. Baker, follows, along with a list of William’s children. The Dodge Genealogy continues:717 “The will of Roger Conant, dated 1st _____, 1677, gives to his daughter, Mary Dodge, wife of Capt. William, £5, and £5 more for her five children. His inventory was £258 10s.

“[p. 22] In the will of Capt. William, he says: my brother, the Rev. Mr. Hale of Beverly, To Edward Larkin his late wife’s son he forgives a debt, makes his son Dea. William his executor, his bro. Capt. John, Rev. Mr. Hale & Lot Conant his overseers.”
