Are you the Son of Morris Truant/Trouant/Trufant listed in his Will dated 31 December 1678?
A very interesting Newspaper Article appears in the Fitchburg Daily Sentinel (Fitchburg, Massachusetts) on Wednesday July 12, 1916.
--An agent for a prominent museum
was in town this morning and carried
away the John Trouant chest which
has been displayed in the windows of
the Stafford antique store. The piece
is a very valuable one in all respects,
its original owner being John Trouant
of Plymounth, who was in possession
of the chest as early as 1690, showing
the article to be at least 225 years old.
