General Notes (Husband)

Daniel was a taylor. In 1719 he went with his brothers to Stafford and became one of the first proprietors of the new town. In partnership with his brother Josiah he built the "Mill" at Stafford Hollow. It is recorded the "Each proprietor of the town shall give one day's work or its equivalent in money towards building the Mill of Daniel and Josiah Blogget and the proprietors shall have the privilege of the Mill by paying due and lawful toll" This Mill was used for grinding and as a saw-mill for more than two hundred years, when it passed into the hands of the Woolen Company. The village of Stafford Hollow seems to have changed very little during the years. The land appears to be rather a hard farming proposition and the Compiler has been unable to find a reason why the early settlers took up the stony land in the first place. This may explain why most of the proprietors had a special added occupation which they may have found more sustaining than their rocky acres.
