The Early History of the Wilson Family of Kittery Maine: It has been shown that Richard Endle Sr had undisputed possession of the land the Endle home lot on the East side of Spruce Creek. This land was on the South East side of what is now the Norton Road and extended from the shore into the woods in a North Easterly direction containing about sixty acres In October 1682 there was laid out to Richard Endle twenty acres of land the June before 3. It was neary mast waye leading to Spruce Creek and was eighty rods long North and South and forty rods wide East and West. Sergt Wilson and Andrew Haley owned land adjoining on the South and the lot is bounded on the other three sides by town commons. This lot was near Curtis's Creek. The mast waye may have been the creek itself which very likely was used for floating heavy timbers and ships masts and spars down to the deeper water where vessels could be loaded .These two lots comprise all of the land Richard Endle Sr owned in Kittery. He sold his property at the Isles of Shoals to Francis Wainwright who in turn sold out to Roger Kelly in June 1686. Richard Endle Sr died before 1695 for under the date Sept 14 1695. Richard Endle Jr sold to Samuel Penhallow two lots of land one of which is described as ten acres of the twenty acre lot granted to his father Richard Endle June 24 1682. There are records of three children of Richard Endle. Richard, John and Hannah. John Endle died in 1690. Richard his brother was appointed administrator of his estate in July 1690. Richard Endle Jr lived for some years in Kittery but there is very little of record about him excepting some deeds and grants. He was granted twenty acres in 1684 which was one of the two lots just mentioned as deeded to Samuel Penhallow in 1695. In 1699 he was granted twenty acres the right to which he apparently sold to Wm Pepperrell before it was laid out. By a deed dated Dec 1707 he sold to Elisha Ingerson a nephew of Elihu Gunnison herein mentioned a lot of land at Goose Creek. Undoubtedly this was the piece mentioned in the 1701 deed from Elihu Gunnison to Richard Endle as that tract of land that lies on the South side of said Endle's house bounded by the creek and Ingarson's lane and the old highway as the said tract of land is now fenced. 3 The next mention of Richard Endle is in January 1711 when he sold to his brother in law Sergt Wilson ten acres of land by Curtis's Creek. This was a part of the twenty acres granted to his father in June 1682 .This sale apparently disposes of all of his land excepting the home lot at Goose Creek and this was mortgaged to Wm Pepperrell. Richard Endle died previous to 1719 as is shown in the extract already quoted of the mortgage from Gowen Wilson to Wm Pepperrell dated in 1719 and containing the words the tract of land that Richard Endle deceased formerly purchased of Elihu Gunnison.

He bought land on the west side of Spruce Creek in 1679 and ln 1691 deeded the same to John Morgrage for maintenance during life of himself and wife Willmot who was dau of John Baly. His daughter may have married John Morgrage. Savage says he was a juryman in 1659. Ephraim Endle witnessed a deed in 1684.
