   1.   JOHN, s. of Robert and Dorothy (Damon) Tower, and bt. in Hing., Eng., May 17, 1609, became a resident of our Hing., 1637.   He was made freeman 13 March, 1638-39.   In his deposition concerning the highway near the residences of John Foulsham and Matthew Hawke, 9 Jan. 1676-77, and recorded in the selectmen's first book of rec's, his age is given at "about 69 years."   The year of his birth, therefore, was not far from 1608, which coincides very nearly with the date of his baptism.   Upon his arrival in Hing. he had a grant of three acres of land for a house-lot on Bachelor (Main) St., nearly opp. what is now Water St.   He also had other lands granted
