    SAMUEL probably left the Island, may have moved to Exeter, NH.

    Captain Samuel Pease, was the ?commander of the sloop- of-way Mary, manned by all volunteers, fitted out by the Massachusetts Colony in 1689 to protect the coast from the attacks of French privateers and pirates operating under letters of marque granted by the King of France.
    On Oct 4, 1689 they caught the pirates in Vineyard Sound and engaged in battle with one of three pirate vessels. During the encounter Samuel was 'shott in severall places.' ["in the Arme, in the side and in the thigh"] while "off of Wood's Hole" capturing "a Pirate at Tarpolin Cove" in Vineyard Sound.
    He defeated the enemy, capturing vessel and crew, but his wounds were of such a serious character that he was taken to Newport, R.I. for treatment and 'did grievously languish' for 8 days until his death Oct 12, 1689 and his remains were buried there....He 'left a widow and foure Orphans in a poore and low condition,' for whom collections were taken up in churches throughout the Colony....It is believe they removed to New Hampshire."

    Samuel's mother had moved to N.H. when she remarried Captain Thomas Creber of Portsmouth, NH, and she may have taken in her grandchildren.

    [If the above story is about this Samuel, for some reason, I have 6 children instead of 4 for him.]
