Provenance

Ebenezer Storer may have been the original owner, as it is his crest found on the back of the spoon handle; By probable descent to Mary Storer, m. Edward Green in 1757. They died without issue and the spoon doubtless went to her niece Susanna, who married Rev. Asa Eaton (1778-1858), grandparents of the donor.
