EDUCATION: Signed his deeds by mark. OFFICES: In Pl ymouth section of 1643 Plymouth Colony list of men able to bear arms [ PCR 8:187]. ESTATE: In the 1623 Plymouth division of land there are t wo consecutive entries for "Edward [blank]," granted one acr e; one of these must be for Edward Doty [PCR 12:4]. In the 1627 Plymou th division of cattle "Edward Dolton" was the eleventh perso n in the fourth company [PCR 12:10]. Assessed £1 7s. in the Plymou th tax list of 25 March 1633, and 18s. in the list of 27 March 1634 [P CR 1:10, 27].

If Richa rd Derby failed to return from old England or failed to have the £15 0 paid by harvest time, Doty could sow another crop and reap it unti l Derby returned or paid [PCR 12:20-21].
