Dr. Dyer resided in Barnstable from about 1686, and moved to Truro approximately 1705. He was born in England.

Dr. William of Barnstable, b. 1653. Settled at Truro before the proprietors. He m. 1686, Mary, dau of Wm. Taylor of B. The house occupied by the late Capt. Ebenezer Atkins taken down within the last twenty years, was built by him. The gravestones from which we copy, are still in good condition in the Old North.

The old doctor had a knack of keeping in hot water with his neighbors, and like Tristam Shandy's father, had a spice in his temper known by the name of perseverance in a good cause, and obstinacy in a bad one. I should do great injustice to a long line of descendants, justly proud of their ancestors,to deny them a like precious inheritance. His family all married and settled around him, soon became among the largest and most influential in town ; a position maintained to this day.
