The following is quoted from Mansfield Genealogy by Daland and Mansfield:

ANDREW MANSFIELD (Robert1) was born in England about 1620. He came to Boston in 1636 and to Lynn in 1639 before his father (Lewis and Newhall, p. 187). On 26 March 1661 being then about 38 years old, he made affidavit to the Court at Ipswich, Mass., that he had been an inhabitant of Lynn about 22 or 23 years and in June 1669 "about 49 years old, he testified in court concerning the estate of Frances Axey." (Records and files of the Quarterly Courts of Essex County, Mass. Vol. VIII 1680-1683 p. 256-257, also Warner).

Andrew was very active in Town affairs. He was made freeman 8 July 1645. He was a selectman, was on committees for laying out roads and settling land disputes. He served as trial juror and on Grand Jury 1650-1677. He was called "sergeant" from 15 March 1663. This showed the confidence which the people had for his legal ability. "There are many letters on file in the clerk of the courts office of Essex County in his clear legiable handwriting showing his ability and that the esteem in which he was held was well merited. He was deputy to the General Court from l880-1883 inclusive. By reference to the Court records it wilt be seen that he was entrusted by that body with important commissions." (Moulton).

Andrew was married three times; 1st about 1850 to BETHIAH who died 2 July 1672. Bethiah's maiden name may have been Gedney (Lynn Hist. Register 1913) or  Townsend (Warner-Harrington Genealogy). He married second 4 June 1673, MRS. MARY NEAL, widow of John Neal and only child of Francis Lawes, a wealthy citizen of Salem. She died 27 June 1681. He married third, 10 Jan. 1661-82, MRS. ELIZABETH CONANT widow of Lot Conant of Beverly and daughter of Rev. Wm. and Elizabeth Walton of Marblehead. She was born in England, baptized at the Parish of Seaton, Devonshire 27 Oct. 1629. She died 29 Sept. 1674. She had 10 children by her first marriage and two of her sons, Nathaniel and John Conant had previously married two of Andrew's daughters. Andrew lived in Beverly for a time after he married Elizabeth Conant.

Andrew's will was dated 1 June 1679, with a codicil dated at Boston 19 Nov. 1683. It seems that while attending the General Court he was taken suddenly and seriously ill, as the codicl was witnessed by members of the court then in session. The Exact date of his death is not known but the inventory of his estate was returned to the Probate Court 28 Nov. 1683, nine days after the codicil was made (Moulton).
