  1. My ancestors, so I was told, came over on one of the five ships to Boston in 1718/19. The surname is Otterson, the principal being a weaver…
    Might you know where I can find a passenger manifest, and determine the ship and port of origin?
    I know they settled in Nutfield, Chester, and later Hooksett.
    I am the last of my tribe in NH.
    Thank you in advance.
