??Soldiers in King Philip's war: being a critical account of that war: Brookfield after the Attack. Capt Wheeler relates that soon after his own return from Brookfield the inhabitants of the town also men women and children removed safely with what they had left to several places either where they had lived before their planting or settling down there or where they had relations to receive and entertain them, and the Honored Major Willard stayed several weeks after our coming away. A small garrison was undoubtedly maintained at the fortified house some time after the withdrawal of the inhabitants probably up to the 12th of October and it is likely that widow Susannah Ayres [John Ayres was slain in the fight.] remained during that time as is indicated by her petition and account presented the Court in October 1677 which charges supplies to soldiers under Ephraim Curtis Major Willard and Capt Poole but some time before November l0th the place was vacant for the Council on that date instructs Capt Appleton in his march homeward from Connecticut River if he comes by way of Quaboag to drive down some of the cattle and swine which they have heard have gathered about the house as a relief to the poore people that are concerned therein. There is much material preserved in the Mass Archives bearing upon this point of the withdrawal of the garrison from Brookneld in numerous letters and orders of the Council to various officers all giving evidence of the complete desertion of the town about Oct 12th. See especially correspondence with Capt Apple ton and Lieut John Ruddock etc also petition of John Ayres's sons Mass Arch vol 10.
