In 1675 Elizabeth Woodworth (Walter) bore a child out of wedlock, fathered by Robert Stetson, Jr. of Scituate. He was ordered by the court to pay her 2 sh. a week for the first three months, and afterwards 1 sh. 6 d. until the child was seven years old. Elizabeth's brother Joseph and Robert's father, Robert Stetson, agreed that the verdict was just. Documentation is in records of Plymouth Colony. Elizabeth evidently went elsewhere to live with her child, for no other trace of her has been found in Scituate or R.I. records. 
It is not known if she married later, but it is certain that she did not marry Robert Stetson, Jr., for he married Joanna or Deborah Brooks in 1676, dau. of William Brooks and removed shortly afterward (after the Narragansett Indian raid upon Scituate?) to Duxbury, Massachusetts (Prior to 1700). 
1676 Married of Joanna or Deborah Brooks to Robert Stetson of Scituate, (Present Plymouth County), Plymouth Colony (Present Massachusetts)
Deane in 1831 says "Robert married Deborah Brooks, b. 1654, daughter of William and Susanna," but 16 years later Mr. Barry, says he married her sister Joanna. The 1933 Genealogy says he may have married both. )
Marriage 1 Deborah Brooks b: BEF 18 MAR 1654/55 in Scituate, Plymouth, MA Married: 1676 in Scituate, Plymouth, MA
On 16 May 1676, the Narragansett Indian raid on Scituate burned the Robert Stetson Jr. house. The next reference we have of Robert is in Duxbury, Massachusetts (Prior to 1700). 
In 19 July 1700 He was deeded (as Robert Stetson of Duxborough) a valuable "River Farm" lying with and being in the township of Scituate on the easterly side of North River...being a part of that tract called the "two mile" 
In 1709-10 in the "division of the common lands of Duxborough" Robert Stetson's grand of one hundred acres served as one of the boundaries in laying out the new lots, and in 1711-12, when Pembroke was incorporated, Robert Stetson with at least seven children with their families were here, and with the one hundred acres (then in Duxbury) were included in the new township of Pembroke (Massachusetts)
Because of the land descriptions and surveys, refering to Robert Stetson's holdings, is is certain that Robert Stetson still lived on his original grant when Pembroke was incorporated in 1712 .
No record of his death is recorded.(Last noted in records 1712)
