John Fuller – Cambridge Early Years


Harvard College 1776

We did not find the name ‘John Fuller’ in the Cambridge Town Records,[1] town transactions, activities or as an officer for the years 1632-1664. Also, we did not find him on the list the land owners or homesteaders on the Cambridge Town Plan for the years of 1635 and 1642.[2]

However, starting in 1665, we did find John Fuller as an elected town officer and his name appears in the Cambridge Town Records.
