    Notes 
    • Isaac Mirick earned his title of captain in both the commercial and military service. He was a ship captain, sailing from Boston and from Newburyport. In the year 1680 he went to London in some capacity on board ship, probably as a mate; there he was given command of a ship, sailing for Boston, where he arrived in the same year. From Boston he went back to Newburyport, where he contracted for a ship of his own to be built, on completion of which he took command and sailed for England, there taking a return cargo for Newburyport, where he arrived in safety. He then gave up the sea, settling in Newburyport as a ship builder. He was a captain in Colonel Benjamin Church's regiment, commanding his company in the attack on and siege of Port Royal, Canada, in 1704, in the war with the French and Indians, who molested the English settlers. He died in 1731 in Newbury, Mass. His tombstone is yet to be seen in the cemetery opposite the First Church, Newbury, but the inscription is almost illegible; that of his wife, Mary, evidently erected at a later date, is in a perfect state of preservation, the inscription being perfectly clear.
