accepted this settlement. Saco and Scarborough were in the same state. In 1652, he and others refused to take the oath of office. In 1662, Massachussetts came down on him. He protested and refused again to take the oath.

In 1664, King Charles appointed four commissioners to come to New England and settle the peace and security of the provinces. In June 1665, they were in York; and June 23, issued a proclamation in which they severely rebuked Massachusetts for its unloyal conduct. They instituted new courts and appointed eleven of the principal men of the county as Royal Justices to try civil and criminal cases in the Province. Josselyn was the Chief Justice. The first court was held in Wells in July 1665. This state of things continued until 1668, when upon the request of some of the principal inhabitants and of their own free will and desire. Massachusetts again sent her commissioners to Yorksbire. At York July 7, they took possession of the church and held their court therein, while Josselyn held his court on the steps and when the commissioners had gone to dinner Josselyn and his associates made proclamation and went into the church and held their courts there. The commissioners were shocked at such treatment, and wish to talk the matter over with the judges. The commissioners justified their course by repeating the old story of the rights conferred by the charter of the Province of Massachusetts Bay. But the fight was unequal. It was much better for Josselyn to retire than to contest against such a superior force and a divided people. In this way Massachusetts completed her second usurpation of Maine.

This ended Josselyn's official career. All the authorities of tbe time wrote of him in the highest terms.

General Sullivan in his history of Maine says that Josselyn was “an enemy to the Puritans.” That is putting it in a mild way.

Io the attack of the Indians on Black Point in the Fall of 1676, Josselyn's buildings were burned and he was taken prisoner. The Indians treated him kindly and after a short time set him free. In 1677, he is found at Jamestown, Pemaquid, where he had removed from Scarborough. He married Margaret, widow of Thomas Cammock, who in his will Sept. 2, 1640, gave Josselyn

a

all his property after the death of his wife Margaret Cammock. Cammock died in 1643, and Josselyn married the widow later on. I do not think they had children. Josselyn acted as a Judge or Justice of the Peace at Pemaquid, until his death in 1683. No worthier man lived in Maine during his time. Samuel Small Nov. 11, 1737, being then seventy-three years of age declared that “when a youth he was a servant to Henry Josselyn, Esquire* then a magistrate in those eastern parts, he lived with bim several years at Pemaquid.”
