The History of Braintree, MA
The first English settlement in the area that is now Braintree,
MA, was by a Captain Wollaston, who in 1625 with a company of thirty
or forty colonists, cleared the land and built log-huts on the seaward
slopes of the hills in what is now the city of Quincy. The settlement
was called Mount Wollaston. Captain Wollaston remained only about
a year and then left for Virginia with many of his followers.
After his departure
one of his company, Thomas Morton, assumed the leadership of the
colony and renamed it Merry Mount. Morton was most definitely not
a Puritan and the revelry and "loose morals" of the men
at Merry Mount shocked the Pilgrims in nearby Plymouth-they even
had the audacity to erect a Maypole and dance and frolic with Indian
women. In 1627 the scandalized Pilgrims sent Captain Miles Standish
to arrest Morton who was then sent back to England.
