November 1 - “The first legal proprietor within the town [Scarborough] was Capt. Thomas Cammock to whom the Council of Plymouth granted fifteen hundred acres between Black Point and Spurwink Rivers. ... Cammock’s Patent bears the date November 1, 1631, which was nearly two years after his arrival in New England.” [source: Collections of the Maine Historical Society, [Series I], Volume III, page 12.]
