In 1674 he adm. the est. of his br.-in-law Wm. Everett jr.; in 1678 the est. of his w.'s step-fa. Abraham Conley. The wid. deeded at various times aft. his death, and 12 Mar. 1709 turned the home place and stock at Mount Misery, Berwick, over to a Benj. with life reserva. Ch: Nathan, Abraham, Samuel, Margery, Sarah, Martha, Ann, Mary, Benjamin. [ref 22]

LORD Nathan Lord, the immigrant ancestor, is thought to have come from county Kent, England, with Abraham Conley, whose daughter (Judith?) was his first wife. He married (second) Martha, daughter of William and Margery Everett, who was born in 1640, as a deposition shows. He died about 1690, aged about eighty-seven years. He was a prominent man and held several civil offices. His widow was living in 1723. In 1662 he bought twenty-five acres of land of John Neal in Kittery, Maine, where he lived. In 1652 the commissioners who were appointed to treat with the people of Maine to get them to acknowledge the jurisdiction of Massachusetts failed in their first attempt; the second commission, formed of men who well understood the feelings of the Maine people in the matter, summoned the inhabitants of Kittery to a meeting. After some debate the men signed a paper submitting; another paper, a copy of the first, had seven names added of men who did not sign the submission, and Nathan Lord is one of these; it is likely that these seven signed later after the grant of the commissioners to the town had been made. Children: Nathan, Abraham, Samuel, Margery, Martha, Ann, a dau. married Moses Littlefield, Sarah, Benjamin. [ref 29:1886]
["-- married Moses Littlefield" prob is ommitted child Mary, but it was Martha who married Moses]

Lord probably came over with Abraham Conley, whose daughter Judith was his first wife. This was before 1640. He is first mentioned as a signer of the submission to Massachusetts in 1652. He doubtless lived with Conley near Cold Harbor, and, after his marriage to Martha Everett, in the lower part of Berwick, east from the country road. The place is called "Mount Misery" in a deed, referring presumably to Rocky Hill, called also Craggy Hill. The place of his later sojourn belonged to a region called "Old Fields," stretching south from Great Works River for some distance. It was probably an old Indian planting ground. Here he had a garrison house, which long ago was demolished. The Lords are found still in Berwick and almost everywhere else, for they are very numerous and have borne an honored name. [ref 33:126]

Nathan Lord, 1st, from the County of Kent, England, settled in Kittery, Me. In 1652 he signed a convention acknowledging the judicial authority of Massachusetts in Maine. December 16, 1652, he received his first grant of land in Kittery, sixty acres "at ye heathy marsh," a location now in the center of Eliot, Me. At present the Boston and Maine railroad passes over this grant at a point between Kittery and Eliot depots. "Granted unto Nathan Lord his heirs and assigns forever by the selectmen of Kittery, sixty acres of upland and meadow at the Heathy Marsh with the timber on ye said land, bounded with ye marked trees on ye east and also on ye west with ye marked trees untill the said number of acres be completed." This is said to have been the first grant of land Nathan1 Lord ever received. The land is said to have been located south of Sturgeon Creek in the present town of Eliot, Me. The following are dates of some of the transactions of Nathan Lord, 1st, in real estate in ancient Kittery: September 7, 1662, John Neal sold to Nathan Lord twenty-five acres of land and a house, on the northeast side of the Piscataqua river, one-half of the estate bought of Alexander Maxwell of York, by the said Neal and lying near Whites marsh.

The meadow was formerly in the possession of Jenkins. March 1, 1674. Abraham Conley in his will gives to Nathan Lord his son-in-law, all the land that Nicholas Frost holds of him, besides all the other land, upland or marsh, he has or ought to have at Sturgeon Creek, besides (excepting) that lot as granted to Francis Small.

The said five and twenty acres of land being upon the north side of the said tract of land with five acres of marsh ground lying and being near a place commonly called by the name of Whites marsh. The consideration was 80. March 26, 1686.
