The transfer of the next lot from William Ellingham to Daniel Ferguson is not on record, but Ferguson must have settled here before 1659, when "the creek by Daniel Ferguson's and Anthony Emery's" is mentioned. He and his neighbor, William Furbish, together bought land further inland of James Emery, in 1667. The dividing line between Ferguson and Furbish was laid out by referees in 1680. Both probably came from Dover, N. H., where William Furbish is found as early as 1648. This name is spelled in more than a score of ways. William Furbish was granted land in Dover, N.H., 18 March 1648, and was a tax-payer there in 1659. He owned land in Kittery in 1664 and had a grant of ten acres in 1668. Lived near Thompson's Point in Eliot. Name of wife unknown. Died in the early part of 1701 [sic]. Children: Daniel, John, Hopewell, Katharine, Sarah, Bethiah, William. [ref 33:121,438]

On 3 Sep 1650, Cromwell's forces took 10,000 Scottish prisoners. The prisoners were shipped to various places in England, Ireland and the colonies as indentured servants. William Furbush, his brother Daniel and about 150 others were transported to New England on the "Unity." The voyage was scheduled to depart 11 Nov 1650, probably arriving Boston harbor about January. Daniel Furbush was probably included in the 60 who went to the Lynn Iron Works; William Furbush was one of 17 sent to the lumber mills of Kittery ME. The voyage cost about 5 pounds of the 20-30 pounds indenture, the remainder was profit for the owners of the ship. The cost would take 6-8 years of labor. William homesteaded on the Piscatqua River as shown by an early map in Stackpole's book "Old Kittery and Her Families." He owned land in Kittery in 1664 and lived near Thompson's Point in what is now Eliot.

William Furbish was taxed in Dover in 1659 as William Ferbush. The statement that he was taxed in Dover in 1648, made in Old Kittery and Her Families, is an error, the result of the misreading of the name William Furber. William Furbish was in Scotland probably William ffarrabas, and a family of the same surname in Massachusetts is now called Forbes, once pronounced in two syllables. William Furbish owned land in Kittery, now Eliot, before 1664, and had a grant from the town in 1668. He died in 1701, having had seven children. He was punished in 1681 for calling His Majesty’s authorities "Divills and hell bound," thus showing his lasting antipathy to the rule of Englishmen. The fight at Dunbar was not yet ended in his breast. [source: EXILED SCOTS]

William was granted 6 acres of land at Dover NH on 18 Mar 1648 and was a taxpayer there in 1659. [source: Old Eliot newspaper]

William was a landowner in Kittery in 1664, about "40 rods wide on the river, and extended back about a mile. His house was thirty or forty rods from the river bank. [source: Old Eliot newspaper]

William deported from Scotland by Cromwell after Battle of Dunbar. First wife, Rebecca living in 1679, second wife, Christiana?

"1 July 1679, Wee present William Furbush for abuseing of the Constable & sleighting of his pouer & sayd hee could not answere what hee did in his office & the sayd Furbush tooke up a dreadful weapon & sayd that hee would dy before his Goods should bee carried away. Jury. The person presented fined for his Delinquency 40s & fees of Court 5s. Rebeccah Furbush presented for strikeing the Constable. Jury. The offender fined tenn shillings & Cost of Court 5s." [p.355, Province and Court Records of Maine, Vol. II, Portland, Maine Historical Society, 1931]

8 May 1681, William fforbes [Furbish] of Newichawannock [upper Kittery] testified that "about two years since he being at the house of Joseph Hammond in the towne of Kittery in the province of Maine Major Waldern, now being of the Councill, took out of his pockett a paper which he read, being in derision of the goverment of England and after some discourse said these words, There was no more a king in England than thou, Richard Nason, unto whom he then spoke." [Colonial Papers, Vol. XLVI, No. 118. Manuscript copy in library of N.H. Hist. Society.]

He was punished in 1681 for calling His Majesty’s authorities "Divills and hell bound."

Vol. 14, #1602 Says his name is Daniel, b. 1635 and married to Rebecca Perriman.

From Bill Blackburn, 1612 N. Old State Rd, Mt. Shasta, CA 96067 "William Furbush...resided at his homestead in Eliot, York, Maine. He was settled by this date in the northwest corner of town, 40 rods on the river. He was fined for abusing the constable and his wife, Rebecca, was fined for striking the constable in 1679. He was fined, along with his wife, for talking against the government in 1683. He was prosecuted again for getting the indians drunk in 1686."

16 Jun 1648 William granted six yeckeres (acres) of land in Dover NH

1664 settled on the family homestead NW corner of Eliot
