Braintree, Massachusetts

Braintree, Massachusetts is founded on land first colonized in 1625 by Captain Wollaston, and initially named Mount Wollaston. Under the rule of Thomas Morton it was renamed Merry Mount. The area was resettled and incorporated as a town in 1640, on land which is now part of the current Braintree, from which Randolph[?], Holbrook[?], the City of Quincy, and part of Milton[?] were split off.
