  • Notes 
    • On 7 April 1662, John Milk was appointed cowherd for the town of Salem, Mass.
      "The cows were sent to the common pasture, and a herdsman by the appropriate name of John Milk conducted the herd back and forth 6."
      "The Cattle were to be kept all summer for 20 Pounds, one quarter of this to be paid in butter, one quarter in wheat, and the other half in Indian corn. During this same year, John Milk was chosen for the duty of chimney sweep, and his compensation was fixed at 4d a chimney where cash was paid, or 6d. where payment was made in barter. On 1 Apr. 1677 John Milk was warned by Harry West to appear before worshipful Mayor Hawthorne to take the oath of allegiance."

      "Mr. Hale conveyed the John Milk Lot to John Milk of Salem, Mass., Oct. 6, 1666."
      John Milk built a house on the Lot and lived there until his death in 1689. In his will he left the northern half of the Lot and house to his son John, and the southern half of the Lot and barn to his daughter Mary Milk, to be equally divided lengthwise. His widow, Sarah, lived in the house.

      On April 11, 1726, the southern half was conveyed to Joshua Hicks of Salem by John Wesson of Reading and Wife Sarah, granddaughter of John Milk I, daughter of Mary Milk.

      The northern half was conveyed by John Milk, and James Milk sons and heirs of John Milk II to Joshua Hicks on May 13, 1734. (reference: Essex Antiquarian 2:174)
