Pompey Lovejoy was born in 1724 in Boston. His Andover master Captain William Lovejoy gave him his last name and granted him freedom in 1762, eighteen years before slavery was officially abolished in Massachusetts.  Along with his freedom Captain Lovejoy gave Pompey a 31 acre parcel of land to build a home. Pomp's Pound is located on this land. After he married Rose Foster, a slave belonging to John Foster, on December 26, 1751, they built a home on that property.
