Excerpt from Memoir of Charles Frost

His father, Nicholas Frost, was also a native Of Tiverton, and resided near Lemon Green, over against Bear Garden. He had one sister, who married Charles Brooks, a brazier in Crown Alley, London. He was born about the year 1595, and arrived at Pascataqua about 1635 or 1636, and settled at the head of Sturgeon Creek, on the south side of Frost's Hill, where he died, July 20, 1663, and was buried in the rear of his house. He brought over a wife and two or three children. The wife is not mentioned in his will, dated 1650, from which it is to be inferred that she died before that time. This will was examined in court Of probate, and, from some cause now unknown, was deemed invalid and Of none effect. The court ordered that his estate be divided among his children equally, excepting that Charles, the Oldest, should have a double share, for his care and former trouble. This amounted to £211. Charles took the homestead, with five hundred acres Of land. TO his second son, John, he gave three hundred acres in York, with a marsh valued at £65, the rest in money. TO William Leighton, for his wife Catherine, personal property. TO Elizabeth, when she should arrive Of age, personal estate. TO Nicholas, a house and lot adjoining Leighton's, and personal property; he being a minor, was placed under the guardianship Of his brother Charles.

Catherine Leighton had a son and a daughter named John and Eliza beth. The latter died young. The son married Oner Langdon, and was the ancestor Of a numerous race, among whom were a grandson, Major Samuel Leighton of Elliot, and his son, General Samuel Leighton, who died in Alfred, Sept, 1848. Catherine married again, to Joseph Hammond, who was Register and Judge Of Probate, and had children by him. She died Aug. 1, 1715.
