IN the ship Lyon, which arrived in Boston, Sunday, September 16, 1632, came William Curtis, with his wife and four children. In the same ship came William Heath and Daniel Brewer, and all three settled in Roxbury, William Curtis on Stony river. In the earliest records of Roxbury was a list of "Ye estates of the Inhabitants of Rocksbury." There is no date to this list, but it was between 1634 and 1643. In it are the names of the families of William Curteis with thirteen persons in his family; forty acres of land, estate eight -- probably pounds sterling. Also, John Corteis, with five persons in family. William Curtis appears to be the largest land-holder in this list, which contains fifty-three names; but there is another list of about a dozen larger land-holders, among whom are Dudley, Weld, Gore and Heath. Curtis is spelled in various ways in the old records, as was the case with most other names. His wife was recorded only as "Sarah".
