The boundaries were thus set forth in a vote taken at a special town meeting held in York, December 27, 1731:

      Voted that the Inhabitants of the Upper End of this Town, viz: Those that do or shall inhabit above, or to the nothwest of the Mill Creek on the Southwest side of York River & on the North-east side of sd River above or to the Northwest of Bass Cove, so a Strait Line from Capt Carnes Grist Mill, to the Middle Point between Baker's Spring & the Marked Trees at the Country Road, in the Bounds between Wells and York. Have hereby granted to them the free Consent of this Town, to be set off, a distinct Parish, if the Honoable General Court shall see meet so to order.

    • The only other Remick I could find in the vicinity of Lincoln County, Maine, in the 1700s was William Remick who married Elizabeth Austin. He was born about 1763. He married in Topsham or Lewiston in 1789, and lived at Wales, Industry and Brunswick. No record of military service can be found.

      It is interesting to note that some suggest that William Remick was an Indian:
      http://boards.ancestry.com/thread.aspx?mv=flat&m=56&p=surnames.remick
      Posts about William Remick being Indian.

      http://www.genealogy.com/forum/surnames/topics/remick/147/
      Quite a long post suggesting William being Indian

      Perhaps this is why his ancestry is so opaque. That being said, perhaps Lydia Remick is closely related to William Remick. Thus her own murky origins could be explained in the same way. All that being said, I see no evidence that these Remicks are in fact Indians.
