Newbury, Massachusetts, USA

In 1634, the ship "Mary and John" left the Thames River in England carrying John Parker, James Noyes, and other men, women and children bound for a better life in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. They wintered in Agawan (today Ipswich) and in the Spring of 1635 they moved up the Quascacunquen (today the Parker River) and landed east of the present day Parker River Bridge on Route 1A. At the end of the present day Cottage Road is a Memorial Bolder designating this spot, marking Newbury’s beginnings. townofnewbury.org
