From Lincoln’s History of the Town of Hingham:42
    “John, son of Robert and Dorothy (Damon) Tower, and baptized in Hingham, England, May 17, 1609, became a resident of our Hingham, 1637. He was made freeman 13 March, 1738-9. In his deposition concerning the highway near the residences of John foulsham and Matthew hawke, 9 Jan. 1676-7, and recorded in the selectmen’s first book of records, his age is given at ‘about 69 years.’ The year of his birth, therefore, was not far from 1608, which coincides very nearly with the date of his baptism. Upon his arrival in Hingham, he had a grant of three acres of land for a house-lot on Bachelor (Main) St., nearly opposite what is now Water St. He also had other lands granted to him at subsequent dates. In 1654, his name appears among others from Hingham upon the records of Lancaster, Mass. It is doubtful, however, whether he ever resided there. His home place, which has been held in the family name throught successive generations, and is still [in 1893] recognized as ‘the old Tower estate,’ was on Main St., next south of the garrison house, near Tower’s Bridge, South Hingham. Sept. 6, 1657, he purchased of William cockraine, Jr., Att’y, land at Great Lots; also at Cooper’s Island, in the second precinct [now Cohasset]. Apr. 18, 1661, he bought of Edward Wilder, ‘planter,’ dwelling-house, orchard, etc., with five acres of land which was given by the town of Hingham to Martha Wilder, the mother of Edward; also a lot of three acres, and another lot of four acres which the said Edward had previously purchased of Samuel Ward. Also three acres of salt-marsh lying in the Conahasset marshes, next adjoining Henry Chamberlin’s. Deed recorded 13 May, 1673. In 1645 he was one of the seven men ‘chosen out of the body of the town, as well non-freeman as freeman’, to order the prudential affairs of the town. ‘Farmer;’ or, as he is called in conveyances ‘planter.’ Fence-viewer 1669, etc.”
