Dorchester Petition of 1641
Here's the 1641 Dorchester petition about Thompson's Island. Please note how John
name is spelled vs. Thomson Island and David Thomson. John clearly
changed it to the English spelling. Also note how the H is formed in Thompson and Thomson. That was
the H was typically written at that time. Now contrast it to
signature and his formation of the letter H and how it is identical to
the H in the Mendon petition.

Attention All Tommies:
Has anyone seen the transcription to this Dorchester Petition? I thought I had a copy from the Mass Bay Court documents, but was unable to find it, though the petition itself is mentioned.
If we can't find the transcription...perhaps people could submit what they think the document says. Though I can figure out a few words, other Tommies seem better at that task and I look forward to reading their interpretation.
