Notes for Nathaniel Mott
Listed in 1643 at Scituate as man able to bear arms. In 1645 he was a soldier in the Narraganset expedition against the Indians. No further records until his 1656 marriage to Hannah, widow of Peter Shooter. In 1663, he was living on Mr. Parker’s farm (Middlesex Ct. Rec) - either Richard Parker’s grant or Moore’s farm. Mott was probably the tenant farmer. He also had land near Elm St. and Monataquot River in 1662. In 1674/5, a widow sold her land which had been late in the
‘tenure and occupation’ of Nathanial Mott. Killed by Indians in 1675/6 according to Braintree records. (From Sprague Manuscript at NEHGS, Register, Am. Gen Vol 19 and Middlesex Recs, passed on by Frederick Myers ( 12/94)

Savage’s: NATHANIEL, Scituate, able to bear arms 1643, rem. to Braintree, m. 1656, Hannah, Shooter had Nathaniel, b. 28 Dec. 1657.

The most commonly used birthdate of this man is 21 Aug 1631 in Braintree. This makes him too young to bear arms in 1643. Furthermore, it is the baptism date found for the son of Nathaniel Mott and Elizabeth Bridett in Hertfordshire. If he was baptized at several years old, which is possible given that a sister was baptized just two days later, this could be the right Nathaniel. However, this family also baptized a Nathaniel in 1639, which typically indicates the first kid died. [2]
Notes for Hanna Niles? [Shooter]
Widow of Peter Shooter. Often listed as the possible daughter of John Niles. 1637 birthdate is for his daughter. See son Edward's wife Penelope for that ancestry. If that is the case, she would have been only about 16 when she married Peter.
