Escumbuit, an Abenaki Indian and thirty of his tribeman tribe attacked and killed Pasco Chubb, an Indian living in Andover. In this attack Colonel Bradstreet and his family was captured. They were subsequently released.

Diaries show two different dates for the attack, according to Sarah Bailey. on February 22, or March 4, 1698.

The Abenaki Indians were being hunted to extinction in the mid to late 1700's for their scalps.
