    The following copied from Joy Salt, world connect db=joybobsalt:

    George Curwen settled at Salem in company with the celebrated Hugh Peter, and laid the foundation of the commercial enterprise of that place. He first began the building of vessels in that port, and was afterward extensively engaged in commerce during the whole of his long life. His books of account and his mercantile correspondence with Sir William Peake (lord Mayor of London in 1666) show that he had embarked in the London trade previous to 1658. The late Rev. Dr Bentley thus notices him in his Sketch of Salem published in the collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society in 1800. "This year, (1685), Salem lost another eminent man, Captain George Curwin, who came here in 1638 with his family, and was rich. He was often engaged in town affairs, and commanded a troop of horse. He was also a representative in the General Court. There is a three quarter portrait of him in the hands of Samuel Curwen, a son of the Rev. George Curwin his great-grandson. " He left no debts and one of the largest estates that had been administered in the colony, amounting to 5,964-19-7. Besides the homestead, he left four dwelling houses, four warehouses and two wharves in Salem; three farms in the vicinity, containing fifteen hundred acres, a warehouse and wharf in Boston, four ketches, valued at 1,050, merchandise valued at 2,232. p. 78
