Text accompanying Picture entitled "Lawrence House abt 1847": Historical sketches of some members of the Lawrence family. By Robert Means Lawrence. interleaved at p. 28. Adapted from a painting by H.I. Brown. THE "OLD LAWRENCE FARM" AND LANDS IN LITTLETON. More than two hundred years ago Peleg Lawrence purchased from the Nashobah Indians a tract of land adjacent to the south-eastern boundary of old Groton township, and now in Littleton. He also owned other lands in the neighborhood. On April 1, 1717, Capt. Jonathan Prescott, "Prof of Phy[sick] & Chir[urgery]," Capt. Joseph Bulkley of Concord, and Isaac Powers, a committee of the Littleton proprietors, conveyed by a deed to Eleazer Lawrence one hundred and twenty-three acres of land in the north-west part of Littleton, of which eighty-eight acres were for a house-lot " whereon the saw-mill now stands." 1 Again, in the year 1728, Eleazer Lawrence purchased of Robert Robbins all of the latter's real estate in Littleton; and twenty years afterwards he conveyed to his son, Capt. David Lawrence, the homestead, with one hundred and thirty acres of land, of which the north-western boundary was "Groton old line," — "always reserving to my own use and to the use and improvement of Mary my wife and to the Longest Liver of us the Improvement of the Dwelling I now live in and the Barn and all the Land that is now under my improvement." The above extracts have been selected, because, together with facts mentioned later, they seem to prove conclusively that the homestead just described is identical with the place in Littleton still known as the "old Lawrence Farm," which originally extended northerly as far as Forge Pond.
