    Thomas Nelson was one of the wealthiest men of Mr. Roger's Company, and owned a six acre house lot in 1643. Soon after the settlement of Rowley, Massachusetts, probably as early as 1642 or perhaps earlier, he built a grist mill, and a sawmill, on Mill River, the first to be erected in the town.

    In the first allotment of lands, he was granted "thirty-six acres of upland in the field called the Mill field, twenty-six whereof was laid out to him as part of his division of upland; the other ten was given to him for encouragement towards building the Mill. Grist mills, known in later years as "Glen Mills" were in operation on this spot from that time until destroyed by fire in 1916.
