See map relating to estate of Bridget Phillips from same Record Book (314264-I002).
The land which comprises the present town of Waterboro was originally a part of a large tract of land which was purchased by Major William Phillips who died in Boston in 1683. By his last will, he bequeathed his lands to his widow Bridget and sons Samuel and William. Under the Wills of his sons, the title to the territory passed to 10 Proprietors, one of whom was Col. Josiah Waters, and for whom the town was named. Josiah Waters purchased most of the land from the other nine proprietors. The remainder of the land was divided into lots and sold to settlers.
