Excerpt from The Story of Boston Light: With Some Account of the Beacons in Boston Harbor The placing of a lighthouse at the entrance of Boston harbor was thought of as early as the beginning of the eighteenth century, as is manifest from a note in Clough's "New England Almanac" for the year 1701: "Q. Whether or no a Light-House at Alderton's point, may not be of great benefit to Mariners coming on these Coasts?" But the move which finally brought about the establishment of the light did not take place until more than a decade had passed. Saturday, January 3, 1713, the petition of one John George, "merchant," in behalf of himself and associates, "Proposing the Erecting of a Light Hous & Lanthorn on some Head Land at the Entrance of the Harbour of Boston for the Direction of Ships & Vessels in the Night Time bound into the said Harbour," was read in the General Court of Massachusetts, and an order made appointing a committee, consisting of the Lieutenant-Governor (Hon. William Tailer), Eliakim Hutchinson and Andrew Belcher from the Council, and John Clark, Addington Davenport, Major Thomas Fitch, and Samuel Thaxter from the House of Representatives, to confer with Mr. George and his associates, and to report at the next session of the Court.
