    1609: "William Randall, was born in Bristol, England.
    "The History of One Branch of the Randall Family, Who Descended from William Randall of Scitu ate, Massachusetts and Settled in Freeport, Maine" by Paul C. Dow, Jr.; unpublished manuscrip t; December 12, 2001 (Randall Archives]

    Note: William Randall came to Rhode Island as a prisoner aboard the ship "Expectation".
    1635, April 24: He landed in Providence, Rhode Island and therein took the oath of allegiance .
    "Original Lists of Persons of Quality 1600-1700" by John Camden Hotton; p. 69; New York City , New York; 1880 (929.3, ORI) (E187.5 .H83 1968 CSL)

    1635, April 24: William Randall came from the port of London in the ship "Expectation" to th e Island of Providence, Rhode Island. He was 26 years of age and took the Oath of Supreme Al legiance as then required of every person leaving England.
    "The History of One Branch of the Randall Family, Who Descended from William Randall of Scitu ate, Massachusetts and Settled in Freeport, Maine"; by Paul C. Dow, Jr.; unpublished manuscri pt; December 12, 2001 (Randall Archives]

    1637: He removed to Marshfield, Massachusetts.
    "Original Lists of Persons of Quality 1600-1700"

    1637: He moved to Marshfield, Massachusetts where he tarried three years, then moved to Scitu ate, which adjoins Marshfield to the north, the North River separating them. At Scituate h e occupied a respectable position, a man of strong opinions and always ready to maintain hi s rights; hence he developed a "litigious" reputation, spending some time in court as a defen dant. Many of the plaintiffs were related to him by marriage or to some member of his family . In some of the causes that he lost, William Randall paid the damages in "shooes", from whi ch circumstance we are led to believe that William was a "cordwainer" or shoemaker. This i s strengthened by reference in Plymouth Colony Probate Court records to payments made to Will iam Randall, Sr., "for shoes." At various times William was Constable, Surveyor of Highways , a Freeman and on lists of those "able to bear arms."

    1640: He settled in Scituate, Massachusetts where he owned a farm on Dwelly's Creek. He wa s also listed as a cordwainer.

    1640: William Randall was in Scituate. His farm was on the brook that falls into Till's or Dw elly's creek: His house was in the valley, twenty rods north of the brook on the west side o f the way, where stands [1831] the mansion of Elisha Foster, sen. late deceased. There is n o record of his marriage here: he probably married at Rhode Island, where we find some trace s of him as early as 1636; or in Marshfield, where he seems to have been 1637. He was an ente rprising and useful man in many respects; but unfortunately for himself, appears to have bee n litigious. There are several disputes on the Colony records, which he prosecuted with his n eighbors about bounds of lands, and when the causes were decided against him, he seems not t o have submitted very quietly.
    1650-70: He, with his wife were of the party that gained much strength, which held it unlawfu l to pay religious teachers. His goods were occasionally taken by the constable. On one of th ese occasions, 1654: "William Randall's wife fined for abusing the Constable, Walter Hatch. " (Colony Records) After these troubles, they both settled down to quiet members of Mr Wither ell's church."
    1660: He was fined "for striking Edward Wanton", in one of these disputes.
    1664: He was fined "for breaking the King's peace by poakeing Jeremiah Hatch with a ho-pole , was fined 00-03-04". (Colony Records).
    1650-70: He, with his wife were of the party that gained much strength, which held it unlawfu l to pay religious teachers. His goods were occasionally taken by the constable. On one of th ese occasions,
