The below information on
Prior taken from “ The Scott Genealogy” by Mary Lovering Holman.
JAMES PRIOR- Hannah Prior Scott Ancestors
JAMES PRIOR resided in Boston, Mass.,
in 1681, where he had three children born by wife Susanna.
He probably died between 1687 and 1690, for on 18 Feb. 1690, Robert Watson
married SUSANNA PRIOR in Boston
and the only available Susanna is the wife of James Prior. What became of
Robert and his wife Susanna is not shown by the Boston Records. It is interesting
to note that both Prior and Watson are early Plymouth
County names and that branches of the
families went to Windsor, Conn. The name of Prior does not appear in
the early probate or land records of Suffolk
