Dea. Humphrey/2 Barrett Jr., born in England circa 16301,2, emigrated to New England with his parents, who settled at Concord, Massachusetts,in 1639.1 There he married (1), 17 Jul 1661, Elizabeth Paine.1,3 In the 1666 tax list, he lived at Abel Heywood's place in the North Quarter.4 In 1672 he was one of a committee presenting the selectmen with 17 articles of instruction.5
     His wife Elizabeth died at Concord 21 Dec 16746, and there he married (2), 23 Mar 1674/75, Mary/2 Potter, daughter of Dea. Luke/1 Potter and Mary/2 Edmunds.7 He was admitted a freeman of Concord, 24 May 16828, witnessed the will of Capt. Timothy/1 Wheeler of Concord, 1 Mar 1686/879,10, and was Concord's deputy to the General Court, 1691.11 Named overseer, 20 Apr 1691, with Steven Willis of Medford, in the will of Mary Wheeler of Concord, and each provided 10s. for the task.10
     His wife Mary died at Concord 17 Nov 1713.12 There Humphrey, ensign of the trainband and deacon, died 3 Jan 1715/16 ("aged 86 yrs.", g.s.)13,14 He is interred in the South Burying Ground with his 2nd wife.15,16
     Concord's 1666 tax list notes Richard Temple in the North District "near Barrett's Mills." Since Humphrey was the town's only Barrett poll at the time, the mills appear to have been his. 109 years later, Barrett's Mills would be the target of the British expeditionary force which arrived at Concord on April 19th, 1775.4
