Maximilian Jewett, son of Edward Jewett (l), was born in Bradford, England, and was baptized there October 4, 1607. He came to this country with Rev. Ezekiel Rogers in 1639. He settled at Rowley, Massachusetts, and was admitted a freeman May 13, 1640. He was very early a deacon of the church and always known as Deacon Jewett, even on the town records. He was for many years selectman and a deputy to the general court.
His wife Ann, whom he married in England, died November, 1667, buried November 9. He died October 19, 1684. He drew his home lot at Rowley, January 10, 1643-4, on Bradford street, named for his home in England. It consisted of two acres and was alongside the home lot of his brother Joseph, part west and part east of the street. He drew many lots of land in later years. In 1652 he and Thomas Dickerman, the two largest taxpayers of Rowley, each had six cows, but Dickerman's stock was valued by the assessors at a slightly larger amount. Jewett's assessed property was valued at one hundred and five pounds, eight shillings, four pence.
