NOTES: I got the name of Samuel's father and the line back from the Robert Wylie Family History Website at Rootsweb.com. John's name appears on the tax rolls of Newcasle, NH from 1720 through 1743. He was a brick mason, timber dealer, and an inn holder by 1729. In 1726 John and Jane bought and sold property in Newcastle. In 1743 John sold his Newcastle property to Thomas Bell and moved his family to Falmouth, ME where he and second wife bought property in Cape Elizabeth.

Copy of a letter in the B.L. Noyes collection:
Portland, Me., Jan. 25, 1931
My dear Dr. Noyes:
Recently I went over to the Cape (Elizabeth) to call on an aunt, Malvina Trundy Merriman (who is 86 years of age). She showed me a paper clipping from the Press Herald and asked me if I would write you what little knowledge she had of Trundy's Reef.
She says: "The first Trundy (William) settled in Kittery about 200 years ago. He had two children, George and Jane. After death of William the property was divided, George taking all his money and coming to Portland settled on Cape and acquired all the land eastward of what is the main road on Cape Elizabeth. It included many hundreds of acres. The said George built a house on land which is now east of the Methodist Church.
George had two children--son and daughter---the son being named for grandfather, William. The son heired the property. Now William had eight children, one dying in infancy.
William's two sons, William and John, were left the land. William had the part which included the old homestead and the land which, as I said, is to the east of the now main road. How far the land runs I do not know. John's part included the reef and what is now known as Shore Acres. Two of William's children are now living--Malvina Trundy Merriman (86) and Annie Elizabeth Henley (80). John's son Leander also survives."
These are the facts as Mrs. Merriman remembers them. If there are any questions you would like to ask she would be glad to tell you if she knows.
I am the granddaughter of William Trundy and daughter of Julia Trundy Henley. On the Henley side I have a cousin who married a Miss Knowlton of Sunset whom you may recall, as her husband said she knew you.
Trusting this may answer at least part of your queries, I am
Sincerely, (Miss) Annie T. Henley, Eastland Hotel, Portland, Maine.

From Island Chronicles Accounts of Days Past in Deer Isle and Stonington page 62 by Clayton H. Gross 1977: "(This may have been Thomas T. Trundy, who was noted for his photographic memory. It is said that he was chided by the new preacher, upon leaving church, for not paying attention to the sermon, whereupon he preached the sermon back to the astonished preacher, word for word.)"
