Notes for Samuel Packard:
Samuel Packard and his wife and child came from Windham, near Hingham, in England, in the ship called "The Diligent, of Ipswich, 133 passengers, John Martin, master," and settled in Hingham, MA in 1638; he thence came to West Bridgewater and died about 1684, the date of his will; he was constable in 1664, and licensed to keep an ordinary, or tavern in 1670.
In the early records, both at Hingham and Bridgewater the name is written Packer, and was here formerly invariably pronounced so. The name on the town Records was also sometimes written Peckar, Pecker, Peckard, and Peckerd, but by the family has been generally written Packard
