Notes for G
George Puffer, the first of the family in this country, and the pioneer ancestory, lived but a few years after coming to New England, and we know very little about him. He was one of the residents of Boston to whom land was granted at Mount Wollaston, which was afterwards the town of Braintree, now the city of Quincy. The records shows that he was granted twenty acres of land and that there were five in his family, indicating that he had three children, February 24, 1639. His homestead was located about two miles east of the railroad station of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad (formerly the Old Colony Railroad) at Quincy. It is the site of the present Fore River shipyards. In the early records the name is often spelled Poffer.

He had sons James and Matthias. The records show that Matthias married Rachel Farnsworth. According to the Farnsworth genealogy and public records, Ruth Farnsworth, born June 3, 1642 married William Puffer. In their accounts of the Puffer family, neither Mr. Appleton or Mr. Nutt, find any further trace of William Puffer. It may still be questioned whether George had a son William.
