Notes for Capt. William Traske
For history see accounts by William Blake Trask21,22]. This is also discussed in the beginning of Gwen Guiou Trask23. Rhode Island Genealogical Records25 says he was the son of William and grandson of John Trask of East Coker, and that he was baptised there on 14 Dec. 1585.

He was one of the thirty founders of the First Church in Salem, listed in the Covenant of August 6, 1629. The town granted 1000 acres on 25 Jan. 1635/6 to a group of five old planters: Capt. William Trask, John Woodbury, Roger Conant, Peter Palfrey and Roger Conant. He lived on the road from Bass River to Balch's Tavern.

Considerably more detail may be added.
