     "In the suit of Captain Johnson vs. Ensign John Carter, Dec., 1658, Henry Tottingham, aged 50, testifies. Other witnesses were: William Simonds, aged about 47, Robert Peirce about 38, Joseph Knight about 34, William Locke about 30, William Johnson about 30, Matthew Johnson about 26 (?), Richard Holden, about 50, Thomas Dutton about 39, Francis Kendall about 38, Edward Converse about 68, John Mousall about 63, James Thompson about 65, Josiah Converse about 40, James Converse about 38, Henry Brooks about 66 and Richard Gardner about 39. The following account of this suit is taken from the Court Record:—"
     
Captain Edward Johnson plaintiff, against Ensign John Carter, for slanderous speeches against him, upon attachment, on file, dated Dec. 22, 1658, both parties appeared personally in Court, and joined issue in the case, the which being fully heard, with the witnesses presented by both parties which are on file with the records of this Court, the jury … brought in their verdict, finding for the plaintiff in manner following, (i.e.) that the defendant both publicly and solemnly in the front of the military company at Woburn, upon their next training day, in the former part of the day, as soon as the clerk of the band hath called over the list, shall make this following acknowledgment, in these following words, viz.:—
     I, John Carter do acknowledge that I have wronged, slandered & defamed, Capt. Edw: Johnson in saying that he the said Capt. Johnson, did falsify the Town Records, for which I am sorrowful.
     And in case the defendant shall refuse or neglect to make the said acknowledgment in manner as is above expressed, he the said defendant shall pay unto the plaintiff or his assigns, five pounds sterling in current pay of New England. Also the defendant is to pay unto the plaintiff costs of Court, two pound eighteen shillings and nine pence.' — County Court Records, Vol. 1, page 161. Dec. 1658.4,5

     John Carter's election as lieutenant of the Woburn military company was presented to the Court in Oct 1663.6 He was a selectman, and "The selectmen were accustomed to meet statedly on the first Monday of every month, for the transaction of public business. … they agreed, March 11, 1674, that if any Selectman should fail to make his appearance at the place of meeting, by 9 o'clock of the morning, their appointed hour, he should pay three shillings to the use of the town, unless he were detained by some providence of God, which the majority present should account a sufficient excuse. And at their very next meeting, it is recorded, that they fined Capt. John Carter, one of their number, sixpence, for 'being nere an hour to [too] late;' and shortly after, Francis Kendall, another member of their body, for a like omission of duty, was fined the same sum."7 John Carter was admitted a freeman 23 May 1677.8
     "In Dec. 1677, George Polly, the wife of John Wilson, Senior, John Wilson, Junior, Timothy Brooks, Francis Wyman, Aaron Cleveland and Hopestill Foster are admonished and sentenced to pay costs of court for 'frequent absenting themselves from the public worship of God on the Lord's days.'—Middlesex County Court Records, Vol. III., page 205 … In Dec. 1677, Capt. John Carter and Lieut. William Johnson are allowed ten shillings apiece for attending the courts to give in evidence against the 'Anna baptists.'—Middlesex County Court Records, Vol. III., page 207. Several of these persons were again summoned to court and fined for similar violations of law in 1679."9,10
     John Carter's 1st wife Elizabeth died at Woburn 7 May 1691.11 There he married (2), 1691, Elizabeth Grose.12 He died there 14 Sep 1692, a. 762, and is buried with his 1st wife in the First Burial Ground.13
     "Capt. John Carter, an early inhabitant of Woburn, subscribed the 'town orders,' 1640; styled ensign, 1653, and lieutenant, 1664; was captain in 1675, the time of Philip's War; was selectman 1664, and 1672 to 1679; commissioner 'to end small causes,' 1664, 1674; and commissioner 'of the rate,' 1653, 1658, and 1668. Ensign, 1651; lieutenant, 1664; captain, 1672. Ordered that Lieut. John Carter be captain, 1672. (See Colony Records.) (Vide notice of his family, Sewall's History, 578, and further of him, ibid., 38, 39, 79, 112.)"14
