From The Story of Peabody by Wells (pub. Essex Institute, Salem, 1972)

Captain Eleazer Lindsey was a mariner. He was the son of Eleazer and Sarah (Alley) 
Lindsey of Lynn. His grandfather was one of the early settlers of Lynn and was 
prominent in the Pequot Indian War. His father served in King Phillip's War and in the 
expedition against the Narragnasetts.
Captain Lindsey lived in one of the houses that stood at the Peabody-Lynn line by 
Brown's Pond, shown on the map of the common lands. One of the houses was used 
as a public house or tavern in 1722 when his widow Elizabeth Lindsey was approved 
as a keeper of a public house. This was located at the site of Whyte's Cleaners at 297 
Lynn Street.
In the early commerce of Salem, Captain Lindsey was mentioned. In 1697 he hired the 
sloop HOPE of 30 tons in which he transported families and goods to Pennsylvania, 
Maryland, and Virginia. He also was a part owner with Philip English, the famous 
Salem merchant, of the Brigantine NEPTUNE. In 1702 he commanded the ship 
SPEEDWELL on a voyage to Maryland and Virginia, and from there with a cargo of 
tobacco for England. Captian Lindsey married Elizabeth Maule, and they were the 
parents of eight children. He died in 1716 when he was just 45 years of age.
The Lindsey farm was divided in 1727, on a petition of Elizabeth Lindsey to the 
General Court, amongst her children and their spouses. Eventually Eleazer Linsey, Jr., 
and the family of Joseph Boyce, an early Peabody tanner, acquired most of the 
Lindsey Pond farm.
