  • Notes 
    • William was an ensign in the colonial militia, and hence was denominated as "Ensign Roe". He was admitted into the church 9 Apr 1699 and his wife Mary on 30 Apr 1699. His second wife, Johanna, was admitted on 24 Dec. 1727.

      He was a constable in 1708, assessor in 1713, and selectman in 1724, 1734, and 1735.

      He built the Munroe Tavern which was still standing in 1964.

      **********
      «i»William Jr., built a house for himself--a tavern. The house, built in 1695, was a famous hostelry for 163 years. Its fame began with its purchase in 1770 by Col. William Munroe, grandson of the builder and great-grandson of the original settler.«/i»
