Notes for David Lombard
He was one of those who promised work on the fortifications of the new meeting house in Springfield on 5 Feb 1677, along with his cousins James and John Dorchester and his uncle Nathaniel Pritchard.

David was appointed fence viewer on 9 Feb. 1679. He was chosen as constable for a year on 9 Mar 1702, but he hired Samuel Warner to serve in his place and the town forund that acceptable. He was chosen highway surveyor on 14 Mar 1709.

He died intestate, undoubtedly due to the accidental nature of his death. His estate is inventoried in the Hampshire Co. probate records (v. 4, p. 5). His son John Lombard was the administrator.

Fortson recounts a traditional story about his activities in the Indian wars.

Four of his children were among the first settlers of Brimfield. The rest remained in Springfield.427

He "died by misfortune." A family tradition has that he was riding up the lower part of Main Street in Springfield with two oxen and a cart and somehow fell forward and the cart ran over his neck.
