Excerpt from Proceedings on the Two Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary of the Permanent Settlement of Weymouth, 1874

I have stated that Thomas Morton came over as one of Weston's company. This has been denied, Young's C. Of P. (p. 334, but Morton himself twice states in the New English Canaan, that he came to New England in 1622, and in one of the two cases fixes the time as in June of that year. The New English Canaan, (pp. 15, Force's Hist. Tracts, (v. Winslow states that the Charity and Swan arrived in the end of June or beginning of July, 1622. Young's C. Of P., (p. Now no other ships from England came to Plymouth that year, and no company such as Morton describes his to have been, except Weston's, arrived in Massachusetts between 1622 and Wollaston's arrival in 1625. Morton, however, not only positively says that he arrived at the very time the Weston company arrived, but he shows throughout his book a remarkable familiarity not only with the events which occurred in the Weston settlement, but with the people composing it. A connection with that settlement was not athing which Morton would have been likely to boast of in subsequent years; but, judging by internal evidence, I should feel inclined not only to venture a surm1$e that Morton was one of Weston's colony, but also that it was Morton himself who proposed to the Wessagusset Parliament the vicarious execution presently to be described. The whole tone of his account of that affair is highly suggestive of a close connection with it, and of great sympathy with the real culprit and his ingenious counsel.
