CONT On 20 April 1669 "Moses Simons" of Duxbury, planter, deeded to "John Simons his true and natural son all that his dwelling house, outhouses and buildings, land, meadow and upland, orchards and gardens" in Duxbury, containing forty acres of upland and three acres of meadow, "with two acres of meadow ... at little wood island in the great marsh" [ PCLR 3:139]. On 30 December 1674 Moses Simons of Duxbury, yeoman, "in consideration of a marriage heretofore consummated between John Soule of Duxburrow and my eldest daughter Rebeckah" deeded to them "all my purchased lands at Namaskett" [ MD 19:96, citing PCLR 4:43].

CONT CONT ASSOCIATIONS: In the land division of 1623 Moses Simonson was paired with PHILIP DELANO in a grant of land, suggesting that they may have come together from Leiden. CONT There was a THOMAS SYMONS in Plymouth by 1633, and several authors have attempted to squeeze him into the family of Moses Simonson, but there is no evidence that he belongs. The most egregious attempt in this direction was perpetrated in 1935 by Raymon Meyers Tingley, who fabricated documents, including an alleged deposition made by Thomas, and managed to make Thomas both son and brother of Moses [ Tingley-Meyers 371-72]. CONT COMMENTS: On 3 June 1673 Richard Sutton of Roxbury brought suit against "Moses Symonds," Sarah his wife, and Elizabeth their daughter, saying that Elizabeth had promised to marry him, but her parents prevented it. The court refused the engagement but ordered "Symonds" to pay Sutton £3 [ PCR 5:116]. CONT Pope included in the sketch of the immigrant an abstract of the will of his son Moses, who predeceased his father.
