   This book discusses the origination of the name in England and gives brief sketches of individuals bearing the name in that country.  It then begins a genealogy report on John Paybody of Plymouth, thought to be the progenitor of those with the name in the colony of New England.

   JOHN PAYBODY1, born in England; came to Plymouth, N. E., as early as 1636, for his name is in the list of freemen of the colony dated March 7, 1636-7, and he was admitted and sworn with others whose names are in that list Jan. 2, 1637-8. He received a grant of ten acres of land Jan. 1, 1637-8, "on Duxburrow [Duxbury] side, lying betwixt the lands of William Tubs on the north side and those of Experience Mitchell on the south side, and from the sea in the west, and from Blew Fish River in the easte."  Another tract, granted him Nov. 2, 1640, was 30 acres "with meadow to it" at North River. He was a member of the jury which convicted three young Englishmen of the murder of an Indian Sept. 4, 1638, and of "the Grand Inquest " at the court June 4, 1639. He was one of the sureties on a neighbor's bond June 4, 1645. No other references to him appear in the records of the colony, save the following copy of his will and testimony about it.

   Neither the name of his wife, nor the date and place of his death have been located in records by the compiler of this book.  The genealogy carries on with the descendants of John Paybody's sons:  Francis of Ipswitch, and William of Duxbury and Little Compton, R. I..
