bullet  General Notes:

History of Framingham (Temple) on page 748 states he (Samuel) was in Sudbury as early as 1670, when he bought 8 acres of land of Samuel How, at Lanham. Probably he took up land in Framingham, immediately after King Phillip's war, and built about 1683, what is called in the records "Winch's old house" which stood where is now the Timothy Stearns cellar-hole, on the road from Samuel Cutting's to the New bridge. October 20, 1683, he took a deed of widow Anne Stone, who "for a sum of money paid to her late husband in his lifetime, sells the said Samuel 56 acres, situated at a place called Wolf Swamp, being part of the Corlett farm." April 16, 1690, he bought of the Stone heirs, 12 acres more of the same farm. March 25, 1693, Thomas Danforth executed a lease to Samuel Winch and Thomas Frost, of 300 acres of land, for 999 years. In 1694, Mr. Winch was living in his new house, on his Corlett farm lot. The house stood across the way from the Elisha Frost, which has lately (1884) been taken down. He gave the "old house" and his interest in the Danforth lease to his son John, and built for his son Thomas, the Elisha Frost house above named.
