87_highThe heirs of John Lord sold the lot at 87 High St. to Sewall P. Jewett in 1830, which is the year in which the house is believed to have been built. He was the son of Moses Jewett and Abigail Pearson, who lived next door at 89 High St. At one time, this side of High Street was lined with homes owned by members of the Jewett Family.

Sewall Pearson Jewett was born Feb. 25, 1806, in Ipswich. He married Susan Haskell in 1827, and died in Revere in 1876.
