The name Pierrepont was created when Charlemagne ordered a stone bridge to be built in place of a ferry. The stone bridge, or Pierre-ponte, became the namesake for the castle and the family who lived at this location.

The earliest death mentioned in the Dedham records occurred in 1637, but it is likely that colonists, especially children, were buried there during the first year of settlement, 1635, after succumbing to the hardships of the wilderness. The ancient burial ground in Dedham includes approximately one acre, but for over a hundred years it was the only burial ground, and since many interments were not marked, some parts of it were dug over several times to furnish graves for successive generations. Fortunately, the epitaphs engraved on stones erected to honor a love one have been preserved here. &... View more info

To say that the arrival of the first Quakers at Boston in 1656 struck terror in the hearts and minds of the Puritan Fathers is a gross understatement. That the arrival of a few pacifists could have induced the leaders of the Colony to so completely subvert the civil and religious rights they had adopted in their "Body of Liberties," shows how fragile the public mind was during the mid-1600s, and makes the witchcraft hysteria of the next generation, as well as numerous subsequent perversions of public good sense, all the more understandable.
