The settlement of New Meadows was incorporated as the Town of Topsfield by authority of the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1650. The church "gathered" on November 4, 1663 with the Rev. Thomas Gilbert. The third Meeting House was built on the Common in 1703 with Rev. Joseph Capen as pastor.

Lush forests in Colonial America allowed settlers to build wooden homes.

Aaron Estey was born on February 16, 1698/99 in Topsfield, Essex County, Massachusetts. His parents were Isaac Estey, Jr. and Abigail Kimball.

He married Esther Richards in 1723. Their children and life together are described in detail in the section on Aaron and Esther Estey.

He died on April 21, 1783 in Topsfield. He is probably  buried in the South Side Cemetery with his wife Esther.

The South Side Cemetery is in the southern part of Topsfield.  In 1740 Joseph Herrick deeded to David Cummings, John Cummings, Joseph Towne, Nathaniel Porter, Thomas Dwinell, Benjamin Towne, Samuel Curtis, Aaron Estey, Gideon Towne, Nathaniel Porter, Jr., Amos Dorman, Thomas Dorman, Israel Towne, Daniel Robinson and Joseph Hobbs a half acre of land in Topsfield on the south side of Ipswich River, known as the burying place, enclosed with a stone wall, to be used as a cemetery. No stones mark the earliest graves and the resting places of only a few of the Revolutionary soldiers buried here can be identified. Mrs. Esther Estey who lived to be over a hundred years old is buried there.
