85 Gift of Samuel Ward


    B. Further Confirmation of Gift

    [March 6 1681/82]

    Item I give the Island lying betwixt Hingham and Hull called Bumkin Island unto the Colledge and my mind is that it be called by the name of Wards Island Samuel Ward and a Seal.

    Dated Sixth Day of March 1681


    The Island which I have given to the Colledge which lyeth between Hingham and Hull called Bumkin Island my mind is That it should be and remain for ever to Hartford Colledge in New England the Rent of it to be for the easement of the Charges of the Dyet of the students that are in Commons.
