Excerpt from Leading Business Men of Marlboro, Hudson, So: Framingham, Natick, and Vicinity; Embracing Also Saxonville and Cochituate

Nearly 250 years have elapsed since the quaintly-worded petition was presented which resulted in the granting of the tract of land from which the present town of Marlborough was to be formed, and yet between the lines of that petition may be found unmistakable proof that human nature is much the same in all ages and among all peoples. The petitioners were thirteen prominent citizens of Sudbury and evidently believed in the adage unto him that hath shall be given, for among the reasons they give why their prayer should be granted are the following:

"God hath been pleased to increase our children, which are now divers of them grown to man's estate, and wee, many of us, grown into years, so as wee should bee glad to see them settled before the Lord take us away from hence, as also God having given us some considerable cattle, so that we are so straightened that we cannot 80 comfortably subsist as could bee desired; and some of us having taken some pains to view the country, we have found a place which lyeth westward, about eight miles from Sudbury, which wee conceive might bee comfortable for our subsistence. They asked for a tract eight miles square but were given one about six miles square, containing 29, 419 acres. This grant was made May 14, 1656, and September 25 of the same year the first meeting of the proprietors was held. Their plantation was called Whipsufferage, this odd name being of Indian origin, or rather a corruption of the Indian Whip-suppcricke, the title of an adjacent hill. In November, 1660, there were set off and confirmed to their proprietors thirty-eight house-lots, among which were one for the minister and one for the smith; the rest of the land being left subject to future grants and being known as cow commons. The town was incorporated May 31, 1660, being named Marlborow in honor of the English town of the same name. It is supposed that this title was chosen because some of the early settlers came from that town but there is no certainty on this point, although it is evident that it could not, like the English Marlborow, be so called on account of the abundance of marl in the vicinity.
