From Dow’s History of the Town of Hampton:38
    “William Marson, Captain, the ancestor of all the Hampton Marstons, was married and had several children before his emigration. He came to Hampton soon after the settlement was commenced. Land was granted to him as early as June 30, 1640, and it is probable that a house-lot had been assigned to him earlier. He leaved near the present [1893] site of the town-house (now owned by Frank Green). There are reasons for believeing that he had a wife living in 1651 and that she died not many years afterward. He died June 30, 1672, leaving a widow named Sabina, who was the executrix of his will. She had borne him one child, but it is evident that his other children were by a former marriage.”

From The Marston Genealogy, pages 6-7:
    “William Marston, Sr., patriarch of the Hampton, N. H., branch, was born in England (tradition says in Yorkshire county), about A. D. 1592, and came to Salem, Mass., in 1634 with his family (and probably two brothers, Robert and John), and resided there about three years, receiving a grant of land in 1636 from the General Court of Massachusetts, but soon after went to Newbury for a short time; thence, in October, 1738, to Winnecumet, where he with fifty-five others settled on lands granted them by the General Court of Massachusetts, and they called the place Hampton (Norfolk county), after the English home of a part of the settlers, and by this name it was incorporated. It is quite probable that his first wife lived till about 1660. Then about 1662, when about seventy years old, he married second, Sabrina Page, aged eithteen or twenty eyars, a daughter of Robert and Lucia Page, of Ormesby (Yarmouth), Norfolk county, England, by whom he had one daughter, Tryphena. He was a kind hearted, benevolent, and godly man, and was a member of the Quaker or Friends, church, and suffered persecutions for his religous tenets. He often harbored and aided his distressed and persecuted brethren, for which Christian deeds he was robbed by exorbitant fines by the zealous and bigoted courts. In Felt’s Annals of New England I find this record:
    “ ‘Oct. 14, 1657, WIlliam Marston petitioned the court at Hampton, that the fine of £15 may be remitted that had been imposed on him for keeping a paper and two books which inculcated Quaker doctrines.’
    “He died in Hampton, June 30, 1672, ages about eighty years.”
