There are several representatives of FOOTE this family among the early American immigrants Nathaniel Foote of Wethcrsfield Connecticut was born in England about 1593 and was one of the pioneers of that New England settlement where he died in 1644 He left a numerous progeny and a large number of the name in this country trace their ancestry to him This branch of the family has a coat of arms bestowed by King James and there is a pretty legend connected therewith The symbol consists of a shield divided by a chevron and having quarterings of clover leaves The crest is an oak tree and the motto Loyalty and truth It is said that during one of the wars between the English and the Scotch King James was in danger of his life and was rescued by an officer named Foote and conveyed to a wood nearby where he was concealed in a hollow oak tree anci that the arms and motto were bestowed in recognition of this deed The following line is probably descended from the Massachusetts Footes though all may have had a common English ancestry if it could be traced sufficiently far The early links are lacking but the unusual name of Pasco would seem to indicate that the present branch is derived from Pasco Foote who had land granted him in Salem Massachusetts in 1637 He probably did not actually settle there till some years later perhaps in 1653 in which year all of his eight children were baptized on the same day February 6 Among these children was Thcophilus who also lived in Salem By his first wife he had three children the youngest of whom was named Pasco 2 I Deacon William Lowell Foote son of Chellis and Sarah Lowell Foote and grandson of Pasco Foote was born at South Berwick Maine near the close of the sixteenth century He was a woolen manufacturer He was a deacon of the First Baptist Church for many years He married Mary Plummer Wood daughter of Daniel and Miriam Bodwell Wood of Lebanon New Hampshire and granddaughter of Major Daniel Wood They had six children Daniel W William Lowell .

Thomas Foote (et al). /// The following is a list of persons taxed for the support of preaching in the west parish for the year 1726. It is given here as showing very nearly the whole male population of the parish who were voters or above twenty one years of age/ It may not be improper to remark that all were taxed for the support of the legal church. This list of persons was assessed to raise the sum of 220 8s 7d to carry on the work of the ministry. John Foot Jr., Samuel Foot, Capt. John Foot, (et al) /// On the 25th of November a town meeting was held to choose a representative for the fall session of the General Court and the choice fell upon Capt John Foot. He was to represent "sd town at a General Court now holden at Boston to endeavor to have ye County of Essex divided into two countys." The object of this move does not appear. It may have been an attempt to re establish the Old Norfolk county north of the river.

Collections of the Maine Historical Society. [1st ser By Maine Historical Society: Thomas Foote on list - The above no doubt were the "adventurers" who went to Falmouth Neck with Colonel Thompson for the purpose of capturing the hated British vessel and its commander many of whom living by the sea had good and sufficient reason for their hatred. This company served until the latter part of October, Captain Curtis being credited with five months five days service. These men did not stop here but again entered the army and many had long and honorable service while some gave all that man can give their lives for the cause and their names are among the honored dead of the Republic.

Genealogy of Richard Currier of Salisbury and Amesbury, Massachusetts: Hannah Currier only daughter of Richard and Ann Currier was born in Salisbury Mass July 8 1643. She married June 23 1659 Captain Samuel Foot of Amesbury Mass planter who received land in Amesbury in 1659, 1660, 1662, and 1668. He was a townsman in 1660, had seat in meeting house in 1667 being one of the favored three who were seated at the tabell. He took the oath of allegiance in 1677, frequently served as moderator held other local offices and was a representative to the General Court in 1689 and 1690. He was not a signer of the articles of agreement between the old and new town of Salisbury but took up his residence in the new town about 1658 when he was chosen one of a committee to lay out the river lots. He drew lot No 1 which lay along the western side of the Buttonwood road but cut off from the river by John Weed's ten acre lot. He lived at a place called Jamaca and it is very probable that his house was the garrison house several times spoken of in Merrill's History of Amesbury as Captain Foot's fort. He was taken by the Indians in the assault on Amesbury and tortured to death July 7 1690. She died after August 26 1708, she having witnessed her brother's will on that date. They had one son John Foot born July 9 1660. See The Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury and Merrill's History of Amesbury.
