Notes

Alexander Gordon was born in Scotland in 1635. At the age of sixteen he was a young soldier in General Monk’s army in 1651 which went forth with the design to place Charles II as king on the throne which was vacant by the execution of his father King Charles I. On September 3 1651, roughly 12,000 Royalist of General Monk's army were holed up in the English town of Worcester. This became known as the "Battle of Worcester". During the 10 hour battle 3,000 were killed and 7,000 taken prisoner. Alexander was captured by English Soldiers led by Oliver Cromwell and was jailed as a prisoner of war at Tuthill Fields prison near St. Margaret’s church in London, England. Alexander was held prisoner thru the winter of 1651 and 1652. Daniel Stone of Cambridge, England secured his release from prison in the spring of 1652 on condition that he be deported to the colonies. That year Alexander sailed to America aboard the Liberty, a ship commanded by Captain John Allen. The liberty landed in Boston. Alexander paid for his passage with a six year bound labor contract with John Cloyes, also called indentured servitude. As part of his contract Alexander was confined to Watertown, Massachusetts. John Cloyes sold his apprenticeship to Samual Stratton in October of 1652 without compensation to Alexander for his year worked. Alexander appealed to the court twice. On his second appeal, Alexander was released from his contract. Alexender then moved to Exeter, New Hampshire and found employment at a sawmill owned by Nicholas Lissen. In October 10, 1664 he married Nicholas Lissen's daughter, Mary Lissen in Exeter, New Hampshire and was given twenty acres of land as dowry by his father-in-law. He received a grant of land of twenty acres from Exeter on 10 October 1664 which was adjacent to the land given to him by Nicholas Lissen. Mary and Alexander had eight children, 2 daughters and 6 sons. In 1675 enlisted the colonists army to help defend the colony against the Indian chief, King Philip. In 1695, at the age of 60, Alexander again enlisted in the army, serving in Capt. Kingsley Hall's company in "King Williams War". Alexander eventually owned several sawmills. Alexander died in Exeter, New Hampshire in 1697 at the age of 62.
