Jacob Magus was a Nipmuc leader. Around 1680, he sold a parcel of land near Sudbury to John Grout. Four years later, Magus’ son asked the General Court to confirm said sale. In the summer of that year, he and his son, along with many other Nipmuc Indians deeded a two-mile tract to Sudbury. Petition of John Grout, 1684.02.00.00. Hudson, History of Sudbury, 67.
