This is the information I have. I also have access to NEHGR so if you can give me a page 1855 is volume 9. I will be glad to do a look up and send you the information.

Hope this helps.

May 19, 1669, Nicholas Doe signed a petition to the General Court of Massachusetts to have his section set off from Dover, "taking into consideration the intolerable inconvenience of our travail manie miles, part by land and part by water, many times by both, the the publick worship of God." ............"Nor are our affairs so well provided for as if we were a township of ourselves, we being in all 220 souls, near 50 families, 70 & odd soldiers, etc." Nicholas Doe and thirty-seven others signed this petition. This section was called Oyster River, Dover being Dover Neck then.

Vol 1, New Hampshire Provincial Papers, p. 309 found in
Doe, Elmer E., Doe - The Descendents of Nicholas Doe, (Montpelier, Vermont: Capital City Pres, c1918 ), 18.
