Shurtleff, Plymouth County Records, Pg.116) The list of Plymouth townsmen dated 15 February 1668 included John and a 16 June 1668 list of those entitled to vote included John Barrow and Robert Barrows. John was granted land there and on 15 June 1674 a grant of land to him was excepted with certain rules.
