Simon/2 Dakin, born circa 1664 (g.s.) at Concord, Massachusetts,(no record surviving)2, married, by 1694, Elizabeth/3a Brooks of Concord, daughter of Dea. Joshua/2a Brooks and Hannah/2 Mason.3,4
     22 Oct 1695, the First Church of Dorchester, Massachusetts set aside its regular lecture day to ordain Joseph Lord, a 1691 graduate of Harvard College, as pastor of a new church gathered that day to carry the gospel to Carolina. Among the eight missionary congregants were Simon Dakin and his father-in-law Joshua Brooks.5 The men sailed in December, 1695, Elizabeth Dakin later went as well, and Threlfall reports that the Dakins remained at what is now Dorchester, South Carolina until 1701, when they returned to Concord.6,7
     The will of his father Thomas/1 Dakin, dated 20 Jan 1697/98 (while Simon was in Carolina), presents a different interpretation of Simon's Carolina sojourn. "… to Simon Dakin beeing he went from mee and wood not stay with me I have gevn him what I have Intended [i.e., nothing in the will] and no more to be demanded out of my estate," his father wrote, as he made his youngest son Joseph his heir.8
     Simon Dakin lived in that part of Concord which is now Lincoln.9 There he died 11 Jan 1739, "76th year,"10 and was interred in the South Burying Place.11 His will, dated 26 Oct 1739, proved 17 Mar following, left his property to his wife and made her executrix. She was to take care of their son, Benjamin, all the other children having had their share.9
     Simon and Elizabeth Dakin are said to be ancestors of playwright Tennessee Williams.12
