Ipswich in the Massachusetts Bay Colony

Part I Historical.  Part II Houses and Lands

At the beginning of the 20th Century, Ipswich pastor Thomas Franklin Waters, founder of the Ipswich Historical Society,  wrote the two volume set Ipswich in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. They are the authoritative  source for  research about the town from its early beginnings up to the 20th Century, and my copies are well-worn from use.

The two volumes are online through Archive.org and I provide links below to each chapter:

Ipswich in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Vol. I: 1633-1700, published in 1905

Ipswich in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Vol. II: 1700-1917, published in 1917
