The first occupation of Cape Ann by people of the English race was in 1623, when a fishing vessel, sent by a company ia' England with a view to the establishment of a settlement somewhere on the coast, not being able to complete her lading at the usual fishing grounds on the coast of Maine, the master thought good to pass into Mattaehusetts Bay, to try whether that would yield him any. Here he Succeeded; and, having completed his cargo, proceeded with the same to Spain; having left fourteen men in the country at Cape Anne, for the purpose, without doubt, of beginning the work of the plantation projected by the English company. History refuses to gratify us with any further information concerning these men, but we know that, besides the pilgrims at Plymouth, the only other persons of European parentage they could then find within the present limits of Massachusetts were a few persons at Nantasket and a few others at Weymouth.
