Robert Screven, shipwright, son of Rev. William Screven, the first Baptist miuister in Maine, who was driven out of the province, then under Massachusetts law, for recusancy in religious matters. [William was founder of Baptist Church in Maine]

With power of attorney for his father, Robert Screven, then of Kittery, sold to Nicholas Frost, of Portsmouth, N. H., a mariner, land in Kittery, dated November 12, 1704, acknowledged by witnesses at Kittery, November 20, 1704.

20 Nov 1707 Nicholas Frost purchased a homestead on Crooked lane, Kittery from Robert Screven, shipwright.

William (Robert's father) and his small band of followers were banned from the Massachusetts Bay Colony because of their beliefs. In 1696, he and most of his congregation sailed from Kittery, Maine, to Charleston, South Carolina, and there founded the first Baptist church in the South.
