Winnepurkit, otherwise called George, Sachem of Saugus, married a daughter of Passaconaway, the great Pennacook chieftain, in 1662. The wedding took place at Pennacook (now Concord, N. H.), and the ceremonies closed with a great feast. According toMoreWinnepurkit, otherwise called George, Sachem of Saugus, married a daughter of Passaconaway, the great Pennacook chieftain, in 1662. The wedding took place at Pennacook (now Concord, N. H.), and the ceremonies closed with a great feast. According to the usages of the chiefs, Passaconaway ordered a select number of his men to accompany the newly-married couple to the dwelling of the husband, where in turn there was another great feast.

Some time after, the wife of Winnepurkit expressing a desire to visit her fathers house was permitted to go, accompanied by a brave escort of her husbands chief men. But when she wished to return, her father sent a messenger to Saugus, informing her husband, and asking him to come and take her away. He returned for answer that he had escorted his wife to her fathers house in a style that became a chief, and that now if she wished to return, her father must send her back, in the same way.

This Passaconaway refused to do, and it is said that here terminated the connection of his daughter with the Saugus chief.-Vide MORTONS New Canaan.
