Beautitul The town is emptied of mornings by perhaps ten thousand men and women who go into Boston to their various occupations. At evening, they return home.

That takes the history back to but this is merely the white occupation of this area. The first whites who visited Boston Bay of demonstrable certainty were hardy fishermen from Britain, France and Portugal.
These doughty seamen came here to catch the great cod which then flourished in great numbers. In tiny vessels, hardly more than present-day yachts, they sailed westward in the Spring, landed a few men on shore, in such bays as Boston Harbor and built huts.
Then, when the Fall storms came, the fishermen sailed home with their fish and furs. This business' certainly flourished during the latter part of the fifteen hundreds and these fishermen were often on hand to welcome the "discoverers and explorers" when they arrived somewhat later.
There is a reasonably good probability that there were white men here even before the fishermen. These were, of course, the Beautiful ladies seeking dating Overland Park or Norsemen who did sail along the Nova Scotia and New England coasts in and about the year 1, The Norse sagas describe settlements made somewhere along shore, tell of the battles with the Indians and while they cannot tell of the gradual extinction of the colonies, the tragic fate of these first settlers in America is grimly for shadowed in the poems.
There is some evidence that Irish explorers may have Beautiful ladies seeking dating Overland Park New England also at about the same era. There are opinions, of course, but no definite proof has been found -- nor does it seem likely that such will ever appear. No one has ever found proof that the Norse ever visited Boston Harbor -- but it seems unlikely that the little dragon ships of the Vikings, coasting down from Nova Scotia, could have missed Boston Harbor as they explored on to the south.
Thus it is probable that the Norsemen must have at least visited Winthrop's beaches and found refreshment and rest in our forests while they enjoyed the abundance of game and sea-food then blessing this region. Before the white men, Winthrop was, of course, home to Indians. Indeed, the future town, with its wealth of Housewives wants nsa KY Mayfield 42066, clams and lobsters, was a favorite resort in the summer for many Indians who apparently were seated in the hills back from the shore during the winters.
