Note: Simon and Hannah removed from Hingham to South Weymouth "near" 1737. David Joy was born "near" 1738. There is no way to tell if David Joy was born in Hingham or Weymouth, neither towns have the Vitals for his birth.
If a family member wants to research his removal from Hingham, they could inquire from the Hingham Historical Society when he sold his property at Hingham; or contact the Weymouth Historical Society or Braintree Historical Society to find when he bought his property at Weymouth and Braintree.
