  • Notes 
    • The Great Migration Begins, pgs. 706-708: The origins of Nicholas Frost are unknown. He migrated in 1632, first to Damariscove, and removed to Kittery, Maine by 1634. He was a constable of Piscataqua in 1640, Kittery constable in 1660, timber warden in 1648, and served on various juries. He was born bout 1595 (aged about 60 on 30 June 1658 [YLR 2:1]; aged about 70 on 16 April 1662 [YLR 2:1]). The gap of nearly a decade between the births of his second and third children may indicate Nicholas was married twice.

      Ibid, pg. 708: "3 October 1632: 'It is ordered, that Nicholas Frost, for theft committed at Damerill's Cove upon the Indians, for drunkenness and fornication, aof all which he is convicted, shall be fined L5 to the Court, and L40 to Henry Way and John Holman, shall beseverely whipped, & branded in the hand with a hot iron, & after banished out of this patent, with penalty that if ever he be found within the limits of said patent, he shall be put to death; also it is agreed that he shall be kept in bolts by Henry Way & John Holman, till his fines be paid, during which time he is to bear his own charges.' [MBCR 1:100-01]

      "On 14 October 1651 Nicholas Frost was indicated for conspiring with James Bunker, William Ellingham and others to steal from Mr. Shapleigh [MPCR 1:170]. At the same court Nicholas Frost was presented for 'saying he hoped to live so long as to wet his bullets in the blood of the Saints.' [MPCR 1:164]"
