MA1 - MASSACHUSETTS CRAZY CRATE MA1  BOOK 4 and 5:  Two copies.  CHRONICLES OF OLD SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS.  By Frances Diane Robotti.  Foreword by Russell Leigh Jackson.  Subtitle:  A History in Miniature.  Bonanza Books, ©1948.  129 pages, 5.5 by 8.5 inches, (1) book jacket,  Here she has covered the colonial expansion period of England during which Massachusetts was founded.  The growth of Salem from 1626 to 1932 is portrayed against the background of the state and national scene.  The author traces the history of witchcraft from 1484, when a Papal decree made it a crime, to Salem's participation in the mass madness.  The book covers the Quaker whippings, the military disaster of King Phillip's War for Indian or white survival, the "privateering years" in which Salem became so great a sea power that Salem meant America in exotic ports of the world.  Comprehensive in scope, the book is authenticated by leading scholars in America and England, contains bibliography, index, addendum and is illustrated with twenty-eight selections from the Essex Institute Collections - woodcuts and portraits are scattered throughout.  Two copies, one with dust jacket, one without.  First caller gets choice.  PRICE:  $10  Summer SALE:  20% OFF $8
MA1 - MASSACHUSETTS CRAZY CRATE MA1  BOOK 6:  THE GUARDIANS OF THE NEW WORLD.  By Doris H. Wackerbarth.  278 pages, softbound, wrappers, ©1980.  Signed by the author. This interesting SAGA started in New Haven
In 1630, John Winthrop led a Great Migration of over 3,000 souls westward across the Atlantic to establish a new England.  The Massachusetts Bay Company, unlike the lonely band of near martyrs of the Mayflower Plymouth Company who had come ten years before, was not off-course nor was it of one mind.  Indeed, some members never seemed to agree with anyone!

Winthrop's Puritan company were political refugees.  The leaders were men of estate, and the majority were businessmen, tradesmen and freeholders; many had left Old England without permission; the dependent families and single men and women passengers were chosen for the contribution they could make in the new undertaking.  From the first, dissenters struck out in every direction seeking like-minds. 
In 1675, Hadley, on the Connecticut River, was a pre-planned community, the third fresh start for its chief engagers.  When King Phillip's War began, they had been secretly, and treasonously, sheltering in their midst, for eleven years, a pair of old English political allies with a price on their heads.  They had retreated from not-so-safe-keeping in Milford and New Haven.  The Guardians is the story of the pioneer-settler protectors of two Judges of Charles I, men who found the English King guilty, and the judge's friends who sheltered them at the time New England was coming of age.  The Guardians is a stirring account of the settlers who came to the wilderness of the New World in an effort to preserve representative government, and their struggle to prevent their established governments from being corrupted by absolute power.  Wonderfully instructive about our early history.  PRICE: $18 SUMMER SALE 20% OFF $14.40
PLYMOUTH COLONY PROBATE GUIDE.  Compiled by Ruth Wilder Sherman Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists and Robert S. Wakefield, FASG.  Published by Plymouth Colony Research Group.  Publication #2.  ©1983.   Wonderful map of the approximate boundaries of towns in Plymouth Colony about 1690 on inside front cover, and on the inside back cover it has a 1980 map of the boundaries of present day towns in what was once Plymouth Colony.  167 6" by 9" pages.  Hardbound.  Plymouth Colony came into being in 1620 with the arrival of the Pilgrims from England, and lasted until absorbed by the Massachusetts Bay Colony in October of 1691.  During those seven decades the Colony encompassed most of the area now lying within three southeastern counties of Massachusetts - Barnstable, Bristol and Plymouth - and also portions of two adjacent counties of what became Rhode Island - Bristol and Newport.  Of the resident adults living herein less than one-fifth even left any kind of probate record.  The bulk of that material is found in Colony records.  A significant additional portion is found in the three Massachusetts counties listed above, all of which were incorporated in 1685.  Furthermore, because the law stipulated that all colony estates of more than £50 value probated during the term of Sir Edmund Andros as Royal Governor of the Dominion of New England (1686-1689), and also during the final years of the Colony (1689-1691) were to be handled at Boston, these are found in the records of Suffolk County.  The largest single published source of Colony records is Nathaniel B. Shurtleff and David Pulsifer's RECORDS OF THE COLONY OF NEW PLYMOUTH.  That work has been supplemented, corrected and/or duplicated by George Bowman and/or Lucy Hall Greenlaw.(Two other good sources!)  Information in this volume will help you to locate the information you want from the probate records of about 800 Plymouth Colony men and women.
This book actually includes many, many abstracts of the actual wills as found, as well as the location for you to look for the actual original records themselves!  Too many names to list here.  Sorry!  New Book. PRICE:  $25.
