Since Daniel Sr, likely lived on the North End of Boston and signed a deed in 1682;

Daniel Elliot deed 1682

On deed; Daniel Elliot Sr, father of Daniel Elliot Jr of the Salem Testimony, Thomas Kemble own mills, and brought Scottish indentures to the American Plantation, George Hollard, a Kings Chapel, Episcopalian, hid Philip English, French  Huguenot merchant, like and good friend of; Gabriel Bernon, French  Huguenot merchant, away during the Salem Witch Trials. By hiding Philip English is likely the way Daniel Elliot Jr along with refugees of the Salem Witch Trials the Town, and Barton families is likely how these families established themselves among the first thirty and listed among the first of the thirty to receive land of  Gabriel Bernon’s, French Huguenot community of (New) Oxford, Massachusetts.

John Brooking was a maltster and later owner of the Salutation Tavern in North Boston. Daniel Elliot is felt to be a miller at the north side tidal mill, and an innholder in Boston by 1704. It should be noted that Daniel Elliott as a miller would likely mill malt for John Brooking when he made malt.

Malt is a grain like mainly barley, which a malter like John Brooking would sprout, heat dry send to mill, then sold/traded to taverns, where it would be steeped to change the sugar to starch, then fermented and so as an ale to consumers. So a miller, and a tavern would go hand and hand with a malter. Later John Brooking own the Salutation Tavern, and Daniel Elliott Sr as expected in 1704 was an Innholder in Boston.

Daniel Elliott Jr in 1714 Oxford, Massachusetts followed suit with father and friend, and became a tavern owner for a year, then as then as needed by this Grabrial Gernon, French Huguenot, accepting “English” settlers like his father before he and his sons built a mill on the north end of Oxford so the people of Oxford could thrive.


Daniel Jr or Sr could easily travel from mill to mill by boat.


Then as refugee of witch trials moved on to Salem End;
