History of Hampton NH: Robert Page, the first of the name in Hampton, was a son of Robert & Margaret Page of Ormsby, in the county of Norfolk, England, where he was born about 1604. His wife's name was Lucy. The record of their examination, April 12, 1637, preparatory to leaving England, gave his age as 33 years, and hers as 30 years. They, with 3 children, Francis, Margarett, and Susannah, and two servants, William Moulton age 20 years, and Anne Wadd, 15 years, were desirous to pass into New England to inhabit. He settled in Hampton in 1639, having received a grant of 10 acres of land for a house-lot lying between the house-lots of William Marston on the west, and Robert Marston, on the east, abutting on the Meeting house Green, on the south, and other land of his, on the north. This is still the home of the daughters of Josiah Page, a descendant, of the sixth generation. Goodman Page was one of the selectmen six years. He represented the town in the General Court of Massachusetts, two years ; was at one time marshal of the old county of Norfolk. He was also a member of various committees raised by the town from time to time. In 1660, we find him one of the deacons of the church, and from the death of his colleague in 1671, to his own death, he appears to have been the only deacon. He died Sept. 22, 1679, aged seventy-five. Lucy, his wife, died Nov. 12, 1665, aged fifty-eight. Their children were : Margaret, b in England, about 1629; m., 1st, William Moulton (3); 2d, John Sanborn (2) ; d. July 13, 1699. Francis (2), b. about 1633; m. Meribah Smith; d. Nov. 15, 1706.

The New England historical and genealogical register, Volume 26: Robert Page born in Ormsby County of Norfolk England in 1604 emigrated to New England in 1637. He was son of Robert of that place who by his wife Margaret had 1 i Robert b in 1604 m Lucy b in 1607, ii Thomas b 1606, iii Rebecca bap May 16 1608, iv Henry b 1610, v Francis b 1612. Robert Page Sen d in England July 1617, His will was dated Jul 1 1617 and proved July 23d in which he mentions wife Margaret and the five children above named. Robert Page the emigrant with wife Lucy four of his children and two hired servants Wm Moulton and Ann Wadd emigrated to America in 1637 at which time he was 33 and Lucy 30 years of age. He settled in Hampton N.H. and was among the first settlers of that ancient town where he d Sept 22 1679 aged 75. Lucy his wife d Nov 12 1665 aged 58. From the records in Hampton we learn that he was one of the most active energetic and influential men in town. He was elected a member of the first board of selectmen and again in 1647 1652 1655 1659 1667 and 1670. He was a member of the general assembly in 1657 and again in 1668. He was also marshal of the old county of Norfolk in which Hampton was then included. He was granted the privilege by a vote of the town of building the first saw mill which he was required to do within a year but by reason of his being engaged in constructing a parsonage the time was extended to two years. In 1659 when 76 persons were taxed Robert Page's tax was the highest and amounted to one twentieth of the whole sum. A committee was appointed to assign to each person the seat in which he was to sit and a penalty was attached for a violation of the order. The people were seated in accordance with their social position and standing in the community. The front seat was considered the most honorable place. In this seat Robert Page and a few others were placed on one side while to their wives was allotted the front seat on the opposite si de. Mr Page was the only deacon of the church for more than 20 years and was succeeded in that office by his son Francis. Notwithstanding the many offices which he filled and the multiplicity of business which he performed he was unable to write his name and always made use of a mark for a signature and a late town clerk of H. gave it as his opinion that the mark was uniformly made with the left hand. 1 Robert1 and Lucy had the following children: i Margaret b in England 1629 m 1651 Wlm Moulton who came over as the hired servant of her father and they were the ancestors of many of the Moultons in this country.
