    • Notes for Isaac Learned:

      From The Learned Family, compiled by William Law Learned in part from the papers of the late Joseph Gay Eaton
      Learned, Joel Munsell's Sons, 1882.

      "Isaac was born Feb. 25, 1623, in Bermondsey parish, county Surrey, England, and probably came with his father to this country, when about seven or eight years old. He probably went with his father, when about seventeen
      or eighteen years old, from Charlestown to Woburn. He married, at Woburn, July 9, 1646, Mary, daughter of Isaac Sternes, of Watertown, who was born in England and bapt. Jan. 26, 1626, in the parish of Nayland, Suffolk. April 2,
      1652, he sold his house and lands in Woburn to Bartholomew Pierson, of Watertown, and removed to Chelmsford, where he died, Nov. 27, 1657. (County records say Dec. 4.) His inventory, dated Dec. 7, 1657, amounted to £187 18s.
      6d. April 6, 1658, administration was granted to widow Mary and her father, Isaac Sterne. The record of his marriage is in the Woburn records, although his wife came from Watertown.

      Lands were repeatedly laid out for him in Woburn, both before and after his father's death. The last time his name appears in the records is when he was appointed, Jan. 4, 1651-2, on a committee to lay out a drift way for cattle, etc.,
      through Henry Brock's lot, near Horn pond.

      He was chosen one of the selectmen of Chelmsford, Dec. 22, 1654; sergeant of the (train) band March 24, 1656; a committee to lay out certain meadow lands, Jan. 11, 1656. App. Comm to decide small cases at Chelmsford.
      In the office of the Secretary of State, Boston, vol. 112, p. 80, is a petition signed by him for a grant of additional land to Chelmsford, dated May 7, 1656. A petition from Woburn, signed by him, "Isaac Larnitt," and by others, is printed in Mass. Hist. Coll., 3d series, vol. i, p. 38 to 45; in which the petitioners remonstrate against an order forbidding any person to undertake a constant course of preaching, or prophesying, without the approbation of the elders of the four next churches or of the County Court.

      The Chelmsford records contain several grants of land to him. At page 162 is a record of such land, including house lot, upland and meadow, purporting to have been originally granted January 26, 1659, and attested as follows: "A true copy of the original in Town Book, page 58, and here entered this 20th of June, 1705;" also on the same page a copy of a similar grant of thirty acres, originally made Oct, 24, 1664. Feb. 9, 1708, thirty acres of land, of the heirs of Isaac Larned, apparently the same last mentioned, laid out at further Tadmuck, were exchanged for another tract (page 147). At page 164 are given the bounds of the meadow of Isaac Larnard lying at Great Tadmuck. At page 165 the renewal of the bounds between lot of Isaac Larned and Joseph Parker, lying in the pine plain near the Crain meadow, dated January 29, 1711, recorded Feb. 1, 1711. Under date of Nov. 24, 1665, John Parker, Isaac Learned and Thomas Chamberline, "sometime inhabitants of Woburn," planters, sell to George Farley, of Billerica, sundry parcels of land in Billerica, which they bought of Thomas Dudley, Esq., dec'd. But this deed is not executed by Isaac Learned. (Register of Deeds, Middlesex, vol. iii, p. 181.) His widow, Mary, was married to John Burg, late of Weymouth, June 7, 1662, by Capt. Johnson, of Woburn. (Records of Chelmsford.) The proposed division of Isaac Learned's estate, April 1, 1662, signed by Mary Learned and Isaac Sterne, had been witnessed by John Burg. (Middlesex Court Files, p. 141 1/2.) April 7, 1664, the court allowed the division of the estate between John Burg and the children of Isaac Learned. (id. vol. 2,p. 5), and following this is an "inventory of the estate belonging to Mary Lernet, widow, now in the hands of John Burg, of Chelmsford," her surviving husband, dated Dec. 21, 1663, and amounting to £222. She must, therefore, have died within eighteen months after her second marriage. 1673, Sept. 23, there was a division of the estate of Isaac Learned."
