|Death: ||Jan. 27, 1718|
Born at Aldie, Scotland.
William married three times.
1. Martha George
2. Mary Ball
3. Elizabeth Johnson
William was a Scottish soldier captured by Cromwell's forces at the Battle of Worcester and then marched to London to be sent to the colonies as an indentured servant.
William may have been aboard the "John and Sara" as there were four Monros (sic) aboard but the first name of one of the Munros is illegible.
William was indentured to John Adams, a millwright of Cambridge, Mass. before he earned his freedom.
William started buying land in Cambridge Farms (now Lexington), married Martha George and his family lived in the area known as Scotland.
William and Martha had four children, John, Martha, William and George.
About 1671 a woman named Mary Ball joined the household, likely as help for Martha.
Martha died within the next year and William then married Mary Ball.
William and Mary had 11 children before Mary died, possibly during childbirth, in 1692.
William then married Elizabeth Johnson.
William is buried in the Old Burying Ground in Lexington next to his second wife Mary Ball.
