of Francis Le Baron of Plymouth, Mass.
It is explained on one of the first pages;
"the birthplace of Francis LeBaron is unknown; the
first mention of him occurs in the Town Records of Plymouth, at
the time of his marriage with Mary Wilder, of Hingham."
Peggy Baker of Pilgrim Hall informs us that
beyond the fact of his marriage as recorded in the Plymouth Vital
Statistics, there is also a mention of the "French doctor"
in the Plymouth Town Meeting records of September 14th, 1696:
"At this Meeting the town Agreed upon the Raising of
Moneys for the defraying the town Charges which is as followeth
Imprimis for... To ffrench doctor fo Care of Hunters wife 05-00-00"
Then a note that in May of 1704, the
"widow labaron" was given enough ground to provide pasturage
for 12 "sheepe" (she had the smallest number of sheep,
the other sheep grazers range between 20 and 40 sheep).
