GENEALOGY OF THE ORIGINAL SIMPSON FAMILY OF
YORK AND HANCOCK COUNTIES, MAINE.*
243 -245 248
By John S. Emery of Boston, Mass. .240 242
FIRST GENERATION. The first representative of this family in America was Henry Simpson, who came from England sometime during the period between the years 1630 and 1640. He settled in what is now the town of York, Maine, then a portion of the Colony of Massachusetts. From the fact of the name of Simpson not appearing among the signers of the submission to Massachusetts, which was signed in 1652 by all the residents of that district, we conclude he must have (lied previous to that year, and that he had no children sufficiently old to sign it. We have no record of his children with the exception of one whose name was also Henry, and who we think was born about the year 1647, and died sometime during the year 1695.
