From the: "Foreword.
"In gathering material for a complete history of the almost three hundred years of old North Yarmouth and Yarmouth, Maine, such a wealth of material relating to the shipping interests of this small but active old New England port was found -- which, if unpreserved, must soon disappear -- that, lest it be lost forever on the shores of oblivion, it seemed worth while to haul to for a little and rescue at least a part of this treasure for the benefit of generations to come.
"Our only desire is thus to revive and perpetuate the memory of those golden days in a ship-building, ship-owning, ship-sailing and ship-loving community."

From the: "Foreword.
"There is a gap in the historical coast line of Maine between old Falmouth and Brunswick where was Ancient North Yarmouth. To fill this and give a connected, readable account of its three hundred years this book has been written. It is not a genealogical treatise nor a documentary history, merely an attempt to bring the story, much of it never told before, in a concise, accurate narrative to those who love the town or whose family roots are deep in its soil. Especially do we wish our young people to know what the contribution of this small community has been to the nation. For as Lester Hart said of Maine so we may say of Ancient North Yarmouth,
"Rugged men and rugged deeds,
"You've nurtured for your own,
"Much good the world has harvested,
"From broadcast seeds you've sown.
"Dear reader, this is the purpose of the book. For our sins of omission and commission we ask your indulgence. To our many helpers we express our thanks and appreciation. But a book should start when it begins. We will detain you no longer."

* As a young boy in Yarmouth, the webmaster knew the author, Mr. Rowe, as a church leader and town clerk. I had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Rowe's study on one occasion.
