Descended from an ancient English family settled in the counties of Kent and Sussex, William Curtis came to New England in 1632 aboard the "Lion." His great-grandson, David Curtis, became the first of his family to move to Maine, settling in Harpswell about 1744 with his wife Bethia Sprague of Duxbury, Massachusetts. The couple had six children, the most prominent being Nehemiah Curtis, a militia commander before and during the Revolutionary War, and many descendants throughout Freeport and Harpswell, including Captain William Curtis.

Contains genealogical material on the Curtis family of Maine, collected by the Reverend C.N. Sinnett. Includes information on many branches of the Curtis Family from 16th century England to 19th century Maine, focusing primarily on the branches that settled in Harpswell and Freeport.
