NOTE: From Pioneers of Maine and New Hampshire 1623-1660 by POPE page 667-68: FIELD, FEILD, FEILLD, Darby, an Irishman (sic), resident at Marblehead in 1637. Rem. to Exeter. Signed the comination 5 (4) 1639. Travelled in Maine and went with two Indians up the Saco river valley in 1642. Was the first white man to visit and climb "the White Hill" or one of the peaks of the White mountains. Made the journey from Saco in 18 days. His reports led Thomas Georges and Mr. Vines to make a journey thither in August following. [W.]

Rem. to Dover, Proprietor. Sued a man in 1642 for setting the woods afire and burning up his pipe staves. Licensed to sell wine in 1644. Taxed in 1648. He became "distracted"; the court ordered that Strawberry Bank should pay a share of the expenses of his "imprisonment and keeing". "Goodie Feild" was mentioned as a proprietor in 1650. Admin. of his estate was granted 1 (8) 1651 to Ambrose Gibbins.

History of Saco and Biddeford by Folsom page 7: A visit of Mr. Vines to the White Mountains described by Winthrop, is worthy of notice. It was performed in the month of August, 1642, by him in company with Thomas Gorges, the deputy-governor. Darby Field, who was living at Exeter 1639, has the credit of being the first visitor to these mountains. His journey also is described by Winthrop, who says it was performed in the year 1642. He appears to have returned by the way of Saco. "The report he brought," says Winthrop, "of shining stones, &c., caused divers others to travel, but they found nothing worth their pains. Mr. Gorges and Mr. Vines, two of the magistrates of Sir F. Gorges' province, went thither about the end of this month." (August) They set out, probably, a few days after the return of Field, dazzled by visions of diamonds and other precious minerals, with which the fancy of this man had garnished his story. "They went up Saco river in birch canoes, and that way they found it 90 miles to Pegwagget, an Indian town, but by land it is but 60. Upon Saco river they found many thousand acres of rich meadow, but there are ten falls which hinder boats, &c. From the Indian town they went up hill (for the most part) about 30 miles in woody lands, then they went about 7 or 8 miles upon shattered stones, and upon that is another rock or spire about a mile in height, and about an acre of ground at the top. At the top of the plain arise four great rivers, each of them so much water at the issue as would drive a mill: Connecticut river from two heads at the north west and south west, which join in one about 60 miles off; Saco river on the south east; Androscoggin, which runs into Casco bay, at the north east; and the Kennebeck at then north by east. The mountain runs east to west 30 or 40 miles, but the peak is above all the rest. They went and returned in 15 days."...

From Directory of Ancestral Heads of New England Families 1620-1700 by Holmes: DARBY, son of John, tenth generation from Roger del Feld, b.Boston, Eng. 1610, came to Boston, Mass., 1636, removed to Exeter, N.H., 1638, and ten years later was at Dover, N.H.
ROBERT, tailor, brother of Darby, Berkshire, Eng. came to N.E. in 1635, was at Providence, R.I., 1638, removed to Boston, Mass., 1650, was at Saco, ME, 1653.
