What Savage Had To Say...

About the Early Settlers of Woburn


This database was painstakingly created and edited for your genealogical use.  Savage abbreviated quite a bit, but most of it is understandable.  Also, some of his research is out of date with new discoveries since he wrote these volumes, but most of it is still in date and can tell you more about the families of Woburn.


  (Any mention of the word, "Woburn" is listed in "red")  I would advise using the "Edit" command and then "Find", then type in the surname that you are looking for!

Bachiler, Bachelor, Bacheller, Bachelder, Batchelor, or Batchelder, Alexander, Portsmouth 1652, of wh. I kn. no more, but that he was the ferryman. DAVID, Reading, s. of John the first, of the same, is no otherwise kn. to me. HENRY, Ipswich, a brewer, from Dover, Co. Kent, came in 1636, with w. Martha, and four serv. as set forth in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 276, bec. the founder of a num. line, as was thot. in former days from so many spring. at Ipswich; prob. ch. of two brs. of Henry; but any kn. of his childr. is not gain. and we kn. only that he d. 2 Feb. 1679, and his wid. d. 4 Apr. 1686. Yet inv. of his est. was not ret. bef. many yrs. Its date is 15 May 1696. Of his br. John are nam. three ch. John, Josiah, and Hannah; and of his br. Joshua are nam. three, John, Eliz. and Hannah Warner, w. I presume of John Warner, unless her d. Hannah be meant, if these names are found in order of distrib. of the est. as is most prob. HENRY, Reading, prob. s. of Rev. Stephen, may be he, wh. was persecut. 1660,as a Quaker. JOHN, Dedham, had been of Watertown, freem. 6 May 1635, not, as Bond states, 13 May 1640, that being the day of ano. hav. the same name, was selectman of W. 1636, and at D. had Samuel, b. 8 (Bond says 11) Jan. 1640; Jonathan, and David, b. 14, bapt. 24 Dec. 1643, doscrib. in the homely phrase of ch. rec. “being the childr. of one burthen to our br. J. B. and bis w. our sis.” when it would have been agreeable to see her name. He rem. Mr. [p.88] Haven, 13, says, to Hampton. JOHN, Salem 1638, perhaps earlier, had gr. of ld. 1639, was the freem. of 13 May 1640, is by tradit. said to be from Dorsetsh. but more prob. was that tailor from Canterbury, Co. Kent, wh. came in 1636, perhaps br. of Henry, bef. ment. by w. Mary had at S. John, bapt. Jan. 1639, d. at 7 yrs.; Mary, Sept. 1640; Abigail, 12 Feb. 1643; Hannah, 23 June 1644, d. soon; Hannah, again, 25 May 1645; John, again, 23 June 1650; and Joseph, 8 May 1653; and d. 13 Nov. 1675, his w. Eliz. hav. d. three days bef. unless some confus. of name exit in the report. JOHN, Reading, freem. 1666, had Jonathan, wh. d. 4 Dec. 1653; David; and John, but the order of b. is not seen, beside Samuel, wh. d. 25 Mar. 1662, the mo. Rebecca hav. d. sixteen days bef. and he d. May 1676. Of ano. JOHN, freem. 1670, it is not kn. where he liv. but it may well seem, that he was s. of the preced. bec. he d. at Reading, 1705. JOHN, Salem, prob. s. of the first John, m. 14 Aug. 1673, Mary Herrick, perhaps d. of Zechary, had John b. 26 Apr. 1675; and Jonathan, 29 Mar. 1678; was one of the jurors in the sad witchcraft trials, and recant. magnanimous. from their damnable verdicts. John P. late Presid. of the Berksh. Med. Inst. and other descend. of this stock give uniform. spell. of their name Batchelder. *JOSEPH, Salem, a tailor, perhaps elder br. of John the first, came, 1636, from Canterbury, Co. Kent, with w. Eliz. one ch. and three serv. acc. the certif. of the Mayor of Sandwich, where they emb. was freem. Mar. 1638; rem. to Wenham, of wh. he was rep. 1644. What was the name of the ch. he brot. or whether he had more on our side of the water, or when he d. are unkn. JOSHUA, Ipswich, br. of Henry, of the same, came from Kent, but no more can be heard of him, exc. that he had at least three ch. John, Eliz. and Hannah Warner, w. of Daniel of the same, entit. to sh. in the est. of his br. Henry. MARK, Wenham, freem. 1663, may have been s. of the prcced. or not, was a soldier in the comp. of Gardner, and in the great battle of 19 Dec. 1675 was k. with his capt. NATHANIEL, Hampton, eldest s. of the Rev. Stephen, b. a. 1611, m. 1656 Deborah, d. of John Smith, and had, it is said, seventeen childr. (only nine by her), many of whose names it might be not easy to find, but one was Nathaniel. At Woburn he took sec. w. 31 Oct. 1676, Mary Wyman, wid. of John, and d. of Rev. Thomas Carter, had eight ch. and from Coffin's gatherings in Geneal. Reg. VI. 207 we learn that he had third w. Eliz. STEPHEN, Lynn, the first min. there, b. a. 1561, came to Boston in the William and Francis, 5 June 1632, from London, preach. at L. next yr. was freem. 6 May 1635, and next yr. was at Ipswich, perhaps at Yarmouth 1637, but in 1638 went to Newbury, in 1639 to Hampton, whence in 1641 he was dism. and some time after may be heard of at Saco. Willis, I. 37. Finally in 1653 or 4 he went home, leav. third w. Mary here, wh. pray. for div. in 1656, bec. he was [p.89] gone to Eng. and had tak. new w. Her suit may hardly have prosper. for, in his Hist. of Lynn, Lewis copies from York rec. sentence against her, in 1651, for adultery, and that she and her paramour were whip. for it. Prob. he had good reason for leav. her, and in few yrs. after, he d. 1660, at Hackney, near London. Some acco. tho. imperf. we have of four s. and three ds. One had m. in Eng. John Sanborn, wh. was d. bef. the fam. cross. the ocean; ano. call. Theodata, had, in Eng. prob. m. Christopher Hussey, after of Lynn, rem. to Hampton, and she d. 1649; and Deborah m. John Wing of L. wh. rem. to Sandwich. Names of s. were Henry, Nathaniel, bef. ment. Francis, and Stephen, wh. both were of London, and the last is said to have been liv. 1685, but the dates of b. are all unkn. Descend. are very num. ce Winth. I. and II. in many places; Prince's Ann. sub. 1632; and Lewis, most copiously, Ed. 2d pp. 78, and 92-97. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1634, freem. 1644, by w. Jane had Seaborn, bapt. 11 Jan. 1635, prob. d. young; Abigail, 2 July 1637; and by w. Rachel had Joseph, b. 20 Aug. 1644; and he d. says the gr. st. 20 Feb. 1670, aged a. 72. His will made nine days bef. gives us knowl. of other ch. beside Joseph and Abigail, wh. are nam. in it. She had m. 11 Nov. 1659, Richard Austin. The w. Rachel was made Ex'trix, and provis. in the will follows for her d. of the same name, w. of Philip Atwood, as I judge; for Susanna, his gr. ch.. d. of Susanna his d. wh. had m. 2 Nov. 1664, John Lawrence, and was d. and for sev. other gr. ch.. named Cromwell, of whose f. or mo. I have inq. assidu. but in vain. Correct spell. of various fam. with name of so nearly sim. sound, must be unattain. and after trying differ. heads, I felt compel. to use only one. Under its many shapes, in 1829, Farmer found eleven had been gr. at N. E. coll.

Of this first John descend. still enjoy part of their ancestral prop. and from this stock is the Rev. Leonard of New Haven, the perspicacious stud. of early N. E. manners. JOHN, Charlestown, perhaps s. of Daniel the first, for all the knowl. of wh. we are indebt. to Hammond's Diary, relat. that his ch.

JOHN, Watertown, and Newton, perhaps youngest br. of Jacob, freem. 1690, by w. Abigail, wh. d. 10 July 1715, had Mary, bapt.

Pierpont, prob. wid. of one whose name is not seen, had Beriah, 17 Aug. of the same yr. unless we suppose an error in the rec. of m. or of b. He was neph. of Andrew, had part of his uncle's est. and d. 27 Jan. 1706, hav. made his will 1698, pro. twelve days after his d. in wh. are nam. s. Thomas, John, Andrew, Nathaniel, and Beriah, with ds. Hannah, Mary, Abigail, and Lydia. Evidence, giv. in 1661, by deac. John Fletcher of Milford [p.92] (wh. d. the foll. yr.) relative to the ancestry of this Nathaniel, at wh. was present a party advers. interest. might, without violence, be constr. to refer equally to the Barnstable fam. tho. it is less prob. NATHANIEL, Barnstable, s. of the first Nathaniel, m. 27 Mar. 1673, Sarah, d. of Gov. Hinckley, had Nathaniel, b. 9 Sept. 1674; Mary, 9 Oct. 1677; Eliz. 11 Apr. 1680; and Samuel, 20 Jan. 1682. His w. d. 16 Feb. 1687; and he d. Dec. 1691. RICHARD, may be that passeng. in 1635 on board the James from Bristol, call. Becon by Richard Mather, when he relates the loss of his right hand in the gr. Aug. storm, for wh. see Young's Chron. of Mass. 475. Certain. no more is kn. of him. SAMUEL, Barnstable, m. 9 May 1659, Martha Foxwell, had Samuel, b. 9 Mar. 1660; and Martha, 6 Jan. 1662. SAMUEL, Barnstable, s. of Nathaniel the first, m. 17 Dec. 1675, Mary, d. of John Jacob of Hingham, whither he rem. had Hannah, b. 12 Oct. 1676, d. at 2 mos.; Hannah, again, 10 Feb. 1678; and Mary, 7 Feb. 1680; and he d. 18 Feb. 1681. THOMAS, Roxbury 1665, had Joseph, b. 1 Jan. 1666; and George, 12 Sept. 1671, wh. d. at 2 yrs. and the f. d. 25 Oct. 1701. WILLIAM, Salem 1640, had Isaac, bapt. 12 Sept. 1641; and d. 1653, leav. wid. Rebecca, d. it is said, of Thomas Potter of Coventry, wh. had been mayor of that borough. They had liv. in Dublin, and, on the outbreak of the Irish rebellion, she was sent over here, says tradit. and her h. foll. soon; but her br. Humphrey P. and other relat. perish. in the massacre. Some community of origin may be, perhaps, traced to this tradit. and to that of Michael; yet the flight from the rebellion would seem more natural in that early day to be direct. to Eng. Felt says, William was freem. after 1643; but the evidence is not seen. In 1834 Farmer found the gr. of this name to be seven at Yale, four at Harv. and four at other N. E. coll. the earliest of wh. Jacob, H. C. 1731, min. of Plymouth, was gr.gr.s. of the first Michael.

Baker, Alexander, Boston, ropemaker, came in the Elizabeth and Ann, 1635, aged 28, from London, with w. Eliz. 23; and ch.

Not on of the four last were bapt. in first ch. wh. may provoke inq. for the reason. At Gloucester he had sat down on first coming; and in the gr. to Rev. Richard Blinman, 1642, the same ld. is giv. that had bef. been offer. to Alexander B. His d. Christina m. 18 July 1654 Simon Roberts. CORNELIUS, Salem, m. 26 Apr. 1658, Hannah, d. of John Woodbury, had Hannah, b. 14 Oct. 1660, d. at 2 yrs. Hannah, again, 28 Nov. 1662; liv. on Beverly side 1671-86.

EBENEZER, Salem, a soldier in Gardner's comp. wound. 19 Dec. 1675, in the gr. Narraganset battle. EDWARD, Lynn 1630, freem. 14 Mar. 1638, had w. Jane, certain. five s. perhaps other ch. beside d.

John Marshall, was ens. of the milit. and freem. 1691. FRANCIS, Boston, came in the Planter, 1635, aged 24, m. 1641, Isabel Twining, perhaps d. of William, had Nathaniel, b. 27 Mar. 1642; rem. to Yarmouth, and there had John; Samuel, 1 May 1648; Daniel, 2 Sept. 1650; William; Thomas; Eliz. wh. m. John Chase; and Hannah, wh. m. a Pierce, and [p.96] he . 1696, in 85th yr. In his will of 4 Mar. 1693, as all these ch. but Samuel are nam. it may be thot. that he was d. His wid. d. 16 May 1706. JAMES, Dorchester, kn. to us solely by the gr.stone, wh. tells, that he d. 30 Mar. 1721, aged 69; but we may guess, that he was f. of that James, whose gr.stone says, that he “d. 24 Aug. 1734, aged 60 yrs. 20 days.” JEFFREY, Windsor, m. 25 Nov. 1642, Joan, d. of William Rockwell, had Samuel, b. 30 Mar. 1644; Hepzibah, 10 May 1646; Mary, 15 July 1649; Abiel, a d. 23 Dec. 1652, d. young; and Joseph, 18 June 1655; in wh. yr. the f. d. His wid. m. 1668, Richard Ingram. JOHN, Ipswich, 1634, freem. 14 May of that yr. perhaps, is in later yrs. ment. in the town rec. with prefix of respect; yet so frequent is the concur. of this name of bapt. with the surname, as to justify doubt, whether that day's freem. were not JOHN, ment. by Frothingham, 80, as com. to Charlestown 1630, and rem. 1637, or that JOHN, of wh. Winth. II. 29, tells, how he rem. from Boston to Newbury, grew rich too fast, went thence to York, and back with contrition to B. Assignm. of resid. becomes especial. diffic. in such cases, as in the freem. of 2 June 1641, where twice John Baker is count. and after minute comparis. of the incid. belong to the names above and below each John, a confid. conject. may be offer. that one was of Ipswich, perhaps he wh. was b. at Norwich, Co. Norf. a grocer, that came 1637, aged 39, to Boston, in the Rose of Yarmouth, with Eliz. his w. 31, three ch. Eliz. John, and Thomas, four serv. Merey, and Ann Alexarson, aged 24, and 20, respectiv. Bridget Bull, 32; and Samuel Ayres or Acres, 14, as certif. copy of rec. from her Majesty's Remembrancer Office instr. me. For the other, Charlestown is entitl. unless better claim. appear, for he had, by w. Rebecca, there bapt. Sarah 13 Sept. 1640, may be the *JOHN, wh. rem. 1642 to Dover, and was rep. 1650. JOHN, Boston, that early mem. of the ch. wh. by w. Charity had Charity, bapt. 12 Apr. 1635, may be the freem. of 18 May 1642. JOHN of Wells, wh. may be the man, that had ho. in 1675 on w. side of Kennebeck riv. near Arowsick isl. when the war broke out, was, we kn. sw. freem. 1653; but tolerab. sure am I, that JOHN of Woburn was not, since he was sentenc. to be whip. and to m. Susanna Martin (the infliet. of the latter pt. of the punish. being on 28 May 1654); by her he had John, b. 25 Mar. preced.

JOHN, Woburn, perhaps s. of John of the same, m. 18 Oct. 1682, Hannah, d. of George Polley, had Hannah, b. 5 Dec. 1683, d. soon; Hannah, again, 3 Aug. 1685; and John, 27 June 1687, perhaps more. JOSEPH, Northampton, s. of Edward, m. 5 Feb. 1663, Ruth, d. of William Holton, was k. by the Ind. 29 Oct. 1675, with his s. Joseph, b. 20 Jan. 1665; leav.

His d. Eliz. m. Richard Atwell. LANCELOT, Boston, by w. Judith had Eliz. b. 13 Dec. 1644; rem. to New Have, and had John, 1651. MARK, Hampton 1678. NATHANIEL, Hingham 1635, by w. (wh. is ment. but not nam. in the will of her f. William Lane of Dorchester), had Mary, wh. m. 16 Dec. 1657, John Loring, perhaps his only ch. and d. 3 June 1682. In his will of 11 May preced. after provis. for his wid. and two Ind. slaves, he gave most of his prop. to gr.-childr. yet with a reasona. mem. to six ch. of his late br. Nicholas, of Scituate. See Lincoln, Cent. Addr. 39. Farmer mistook him for s. of Nicholas. NATHANIEL, Yarmouth, eldest s. of Francis, had three s. Samuel, b. 29 Oct. 1670; Nathaniel, 27 Jan. 1672; and prob. the other was nam. Silas, says Mr. Otis. Both he and his w. d. Dec. 1691, as Mr. O. assures me. *NICHOLAS, Hingham 1635, br. of the first Nathaniel, freem. 3 Mar. 1636, rep. 1636 and 8, rem. to Scituate, there was ord. 1660, third min. of the first ch. and was of such good temper as to reconcile the two chhs. wh. had quarrel. for thirty yrs. Mather, with his habitual carelessness, says, in the Magn. III. 219, “he had but a private educat.” taking occasion to utter one of his brilliant clauses; yet I found at St. John's Coll. Cambr. that he had his A. B. 1631-2, and A. M. 1635. A short time he stopped at Roxbury. His w. that prob. was mo. of all his ch. d. 1661, and he next yr. took ano. of wh. the bapt. name Grace only is kn. and d. 22 Aug. 1678, aged 67. Her he made Extrix. of his will, in wh. he names six ch. Samuel, Nicholas, Eliz. Sarah, Deborah, and Mary. All the ds. were m. Mary, 26 Feb. 1662, to Stephen Vinal; Eliz. m. 1664 to John Vinal; Sarah m. 1671, Josiah Litchfield; and Deborah m. 1678, Israel Chittenden. Deane, 181-3. NICHOLAS, Marblehead, wh. Willis, I. 135, says m. Eliz. d. of George Bartlett of Searborough, may have been s. of the preced. but we want the illumin. of a date. Of one Nicholas, late of Boston, mariner, wh. may have been a gr. s.. of Rev. Nicholas, admin. was gr. 8 Oct. 1695, to his mo. in law, Jane Colyer of Hull. ||RICHARD, Dorchester, 1639, freem. 18 May 1642, ar. co. 1658, by w. Faith, d. of Henry Withington, wh. d. 3 Feb. 1689, had Mary, b. 27 Apr. 1643, beside five other ds. perhaps, and certain. two s. only one having date, and one even without a giv. name, as by his will of 7 Oct. 1689 is shown, viz. John; James; Thankful, w. of William Griggs; Eliz. w. of a Pratt; Hannah, b. 9 Jan. 1663, wh. had m. 5 May 1685, John Wiswall; Sarah, then dec. wh. had been w. of James; and one, the w. of Samuel Robinson. He had been selectman 1653, constable, 1663, and d. 25 Oct. 1689, as Geneal. Reg. V. 395 [p.99] teaches. ROBERT, Salem, wh. had gr. of ld. 1637, was k. by casualty 1640. See Winth. II. 24. ROBERT, Roxbury, by w. Mary had Robert, b. 29 Oct. 1673, wh. d. at 11 yrs.; Mary, 11 Oct. 1675; Sarah, 24 Dec. 1676; Matthew, 5 Sept. 1678, wh. d. at 17 yrs.; Joseph, 4 Nov. 1680; Benjamin, 15 Aug. 1682; and Ann, 8 June 1685; and he d. 25 Oct. 1720. Ment. on the rec. of d. is seen of two ch. viz. Eliz. 11 Sept. and Jonathan, 24 Sept. 1694, of neither of wh. can the b. be found. SAMUEL, Lynn, came in the Elizabeth and Ann 1635, aged 30, from London; but he was of Co. Kent, says tradit. and d. 16 Dec. 1666. SAMUEL, Marshfield, not s. of Nicholas, as was once thot. m. 29 Dec. 1656, Elinor, d. of Kenelm Winslow, had Kenelm, b. 23 Mar. 1658; Lydia, 18 Feh. 1660; Eliz. 18 Mar. 1662; Alice, 19 May 1663; and Elinor, 1665; beside others in 1667, 9, and 71, of whose names, in the mutilat. state of the rec. no certainty can. be attain. His w. d. or was bur. 27 Aug. 1676, and he m. 21 Feb. foll. Patience, wid. perhaps of the first Moses Simmons of Duxbury, had Samuel. SAMUEL, Windsor 1669, m. 30 June 1670, Sarah, eldest d. of Nathaniel Cooke of the same. SAMUEL, Hull, s. of Rev. Nicholas, freem. 1677, m. Fear, d. of Isaac Robinson, rem. to Barnstable, there had sdm. with his w. 1687, to that ch. on dism. from II. ‡THOMAS, Milford 1639, Easthampton, L. I. 1650, was, perhaps, that Assist. of Conn. from 1658 to 63. THOMAS, Roxbury, s. of John the first of Ipswich, freem. 1649, by w. Eliz. had Eliz. b. 2 Oct. 1641; John; Joseph, 24, bapt. 27 Feb. 1648; Sarah, 24, bapt. 28 Apr. 1650; Mary, bapt. 6 June 1652, d. in 5 weeks; Mary, again, 11 Sept. 1653; and for sec. w. took 27 Mar. or May 1663, Mary, d. of Robert Gamlin, had Thomas, b. 7 Jan. 1664; and Mary, 27 July 1667; and he d. 28 Jan. 1684, “old, blind, godly,” in the express. rec. of ch. His s. Thomas was k. by the Ind. at Sudbury fight, Apr. 1676, surely a very young soldier, under Wadsworth, but he had serv. in the Narraganset campaign as one of Johnson's comp. in Dec. bef. i. e. less than twelve yrs. old. No incid. of those days more striking. gives proof of the extens. reach of the perils. Sarah m. 19 Apr. 1671, Sebas Jackson; and Mary m. Roger Adams. THOMAS, Lynn, s. of the first Edward of the same, m. 10 July 1689, Mary Lewis, perhaps d. of John. In June 1730, he testif. that he was 77 yrs. old, and that Andrew Townsend of L. wh. he had well kn. 55 yrs. was wound. in the gr. Narraganset fight, 19 Dec. 1675, under Capt. Gardner. *THOMAS, Topsfield, freem. 1665, m. a. 1673, Priscilla, d. of Dept. Gov. Samuel Symonds, had Priscilla, and prob. more ch. was a milit. officer, and rep. 1686, 9, and 90. THOMAS, a min. 1678 at Newport, I hear nothing more of. THOMAS, New London 1686, may have been s. of William, and certain. left ch. but names and dates of them are unkn. One THOMAS, of Boston, was [p.100] head of a fam. 1691; and ano. THOMAS at Lynn was freem. 1691. THOMAS, Yarmouth, youngest s. of Francis, by w. Bathsheba had Mary, b. 7 Apr. 1701; and Thomas, 4 Mar. 1703. TIMOTHY, Northampton, s. of Edward, freem. 1676, m. 16 Jan. 1672, Grace, d. of John Marsh of Hadley, had Grace, b. 1673, d. soon; Timothy, 1675; and his w. d. 31 May 1676. For sec. w. he took Sarah, wid. of Rev. Hope Atherton, d. of John Hollister, and had John, b. 3 Feb. 1680; Thomas, 14 May 1682; Edward, 12 Nov. 1685; Prudence, 14 May 1687; and Deliverance, 13 Nov. 1689. His w. d. 8 Dec. 1691; and he d. 30 Aug. 1729. His third s. was the youth, wh. m. Christina, d. of Richard Otis, that was taken by the Ind. at 3 mos. old, from Dover, with her mo. when they k. her f. 1689, and car. to Canada, there after a priestly educat. made a Catholic by bapt. and m. a Frenchman, wh. had by her two ch. bef. his d. Baker had been made a pris. by the Ind. prob. tak. to Canada in 1704, and in differ. capacity in 1714, accomp. Col. Stoddard to bring home the prisoners from Quebec. Many descend. in N. E. and remote parts spring from this m. among others Hon. John Wentworth, late M. C. from Chicago, and present mayor of that prosper. city. WALTER, Scituate, was suspect. in 1651, of murder of John Winter; but no support was found for that surmise. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1633, freem. 3 Sept. 1634, hav. join. the ch. in Aug. 1633, was one of the petitnrs. in favor of Wheelwright, but seasona. chang. his mind, and contin. in good stand.; by w. Joan had Sarah, bapt. 20 May 1638; Stephen, 20 Feb. 1642; and Martha, 21 Apr. 1644; was a selectman 1646, and d. 8 Nov. 1658. His wid. d. 26 Sept. 1669. Frothingham, 82, 5. WILLIAM, Plymouth 1643, may, I think, have been first of R. I. as early as 1638, and prob. went thither again, being count. among the frcem. 1655, at Portsmouth. WILLIAM, Boston, pump-maker, m. 23 Sept. 1651, Mary, d. of Edmund Eddington, had Mary, b. 16 May 1652, d. at 3 mos.; John, 14 Dec. 1653; and William, 19 Oct. 1655. His w. d. 12 Dec. foll. and he m. 22 Apr. next, Pilgrim, eldest d. of John Eddy of Watertown. But gr. uncert. or confus. appears after this, for Bond, 203, and 755, makes a doubt, whether she were w. of P. Stedman bef. or after Baker. Yet she was young, when B. m. ber, and he rem. prob. to Concord, and there he or ano. William d. leav. wid. Mary and s. William. His inv. is of 17 June 1679. WILLIAM, New London 1652-60, was perhaps f. of Thomas. WILLIAM, Yarmouth, s. of Francis, by w. Mercy had Mercy, b. 6 Jan. 1692; William, 8 Jan. 1694; Dorcas, 15 Nov. 1696; Experience, 8 Jan. 1698; Judah, 2 Mar. 1701; Eliz. 11 Feb. 1703; Josiah, 16 Dec. 1704; Joanna, 8 Feb. 1707; and Patience, 27 Feb. 1709; andd. 1727. His wid. d. 1753. Of this name, 1834, Farmer counts nine gr. at Harv. seven at Yale, four at Dart. and seven at the [p.101] other coll. in N. E. Prob. as the name is so very common, some fams. are omit.

See Adams, Ann. 18. HENRY, Woburn, freem. 1652, was, as is said, from Devonsh. m. 1 Nov. 1649, Phebe, eldest d. of Ezekiel Richardson, of the same, had Susanna, b. 30 Aug. 1650, d. soon; Susanna, again, 25 July 1652; Phebe, 7 Sept. 1654; John, 28 Oct. 1656; Daniel, 15 Mar. 1659; Timothy, 27 May 1661; Mary, 19 July 1663, d. within 6 mos.; Henry, 15 Nov. 1664; Abigail, 20 Aug. 1667; Ruth, 21 July 1670; and Benjamin, 20 Feb. 1673; was deac. and d. 14 Feb. 1698.

From giv. a ch. the name Sylvester, Miss Caulkins infers, that the f. was s. of the s. of him of the same name wh. d. 1638 on his voyage to our shore. JOHN, the passeng. in the Speedwell to Boston from London, 1656, aged 21, with Mary, 20 (perhaps his sis. more prob. his w.), may not be certain. determin. Among so many of this name. JOHN, Salem, m.

I have taken for m. of her mo. with the f. of this h. tho. he may be right, and possib. mo. and d. f. and s. were m. on one day, yet it seems less prob. He had Ellis, . 22 Apr. 1655; Hannah, 6 Mar. 1658; Eliz. 14 Apr. 1660, d. soon; Sarah, 4 Nov. 1662; and perhaps Eliz. again; rem. to Groton, there had Grace, 29 July 1665; Mehitable, 22 June 1668; Timothy, 18 Apr. 1673; Dorothy, 6 Mar. 1675, perhaps d. young; and Abigail, 14 Nov. 1676.

JOHN, Groton, s. of Ellis the first, had John, b. 4 Apr. 1665; Moses, 26 Mar 1669; Ellis, 4 June 1672; and Eliz. 28 Sept. 1677; but the name of his w. or date of his d. is not seen. MOSES, br. of the preced. may have liv. at Woburn, at least he m. Mary, eldest d. of Isaac Learned of that place, but prob. d. early.

HENRY, the freem. of 1645, was, I think, of Hingham, and s. of the preced. but no more is heard of him, exc. that he had s. Nathaniel, and possib. Henry.

RICHARD, Braintree, had Richard, b. 19 Dec. 1642, d. in six days; rem. to Roxbury, there had Benjamin, Joseph, Mary, Rebecca, and Ann, all bapt. 4 June 1665; and Mehitable, 28 Jan. 1666. His w. was Sarah, d. of the first Edward Bugbee, but she could only be sec. w. He rem. to Sudbury, and d. bef. 15 Apr. 1673, when his will of 12 Feb. preced. was pro. It names those six ch. as then liv. calls one Mary Smith, and adds to the number Eliz. Daniel, beside gr.ch. John Graves, and perhaps his sis. Mary G. but of such Graves I kn. nothing. ‡RICHARD, Portsmouth, was the Seer. and a Couns. under the Provinc. gov. 1682.

Thomas Hammond of the same, had Thomas, b. 10 Sept. 1683; Eliz. 1 Aug. 1686; Rebecca, 11 Mar. 1689; Mary, 11 Feb. 1693; Sarah, 18 Oct. 1695; and John, 26 Sept. 1698. WILLIAM, Boston 1647, rem. 1649, perhaps to Hingham or Hull, was prob. s. of Henry the first, was liv. there 1657; and in Dec. 1675 one William, his s. or perhaps neph. was one of the Hull soldiers in the Narraganset campaign under Moseley.

His w. Rebecca, mo. of the four last ch. perhaps of more, d. 26 Sept. 1692, in pris. on the preposter. charge of witcherf. and he d. 31 May 1706, aged 85. This name, like [p.355] Parker, Wheeler, or other designat. of office or employm. was so wide. diffus. in our mo. country, that it must be vain to attempt trac. of relationsh. in various pts. of this coutin. In 1834, Farmer found the gr. of this name were three at Dart. one at Harv. one at Yale, and five at other N. E. coll.

By fam. rec. he was of Bedfordsh. third s. of Thomas and Rose, b. 8 Oct. 1609; bec. treasr. of the Col. 1649, and was sent to Eng. two yrs. after to prevail on the Council of State to revoke the extra. powers giv. to Coddington, but on his coming to Boston to embark was imprison. 1651. In 1652 he pub. at London his valua. tract, a narrative of the persecut. of his friends here; after long serv. in Eng. he was made dept.-gov. of the unit. col. of R.

More than one other Samuel was of Boston in early days, but I have not learn. any thing of either to convince me, that he was inhab. here bef. 1692. THADDEUS, Falmouth, m. 1663, Eliz. d. of Michael Mitton, was lieut. in the war with the E. Ind. 1689, and was k. 1690 by them at F. His wid. d. at Boston 1736, aged 91. Of his ch. Isaac is above ment. ano. was a wid. Hervey at Boston, 1719, and Eliz. was w. of capt. Edward Tyng. Willis, I. 208. *THOMAS, Plymouth, a carpenter, came in the Ann 1623, m. Susanna, d. of wid. Mary Ring (bef. 1631, when in her mo.'s will he is nam.), had Andrew; James; Susanna, wh. m. 3 Nov. 1658, Barnabas Lothrop; William; John; and Nathaniel. He was rep. 1651 and 5, m. sec. w. 1664, wid. Alice Nichols, d. of Richard Hallet, liv. in 1670 at Harwich, where he had third w. Eliz. Crow, perhaps wid. of John, and d. 24 Mar. 1697, aged, says the gr.stone, 98, or more prob. only 92, since in 1664 he [p.401] made o. that he was a. 59 yrs. old. But to this suffie. longev. the “Guide to Plymouth,” 255, would make alarming addit. in his note, “suppos. mate of the Mayflower.” We can hardly doubt, that the oldest surv. of that memo. voyage, within the bounds of the Old Colony, would have been too well known to need a weak tradit. to lean on; and that officer of 1620 must have been older than the oldest liv. in 1697, had he not been d. many yrs. bef. In 1627 this Thomas, not the mate, had sh. in the div. of lds. as com. in the Ann, not Mayflower. THOMAS, Newport 1638, elder br. of John of the same, bapt. soon after b. 31 Mar. 1605, one of the found. of the first ch. of Bapt. 1644, and d. 2 Dec. 1674, without ch. leav. est. to childr. of his br. Joseph in his will, where alone we find their names. ‡*||THOMAS, Boston, merch. had first liv. at Dorchester, 1636, selectman there 1641 and 2, ar. co. 1638, freem. 14 Mar. 1639, a capt. in 1653, and after head of the Boston reg. rep. 1651, and many yrs. more, speaker in 1662, and sev. yrs. later, chos. an Assist. 1673, and d. 28 July 1678. His first w. was Mary, by wh. he had Mehitable, b. 18 Apr. 1640; Eliz. 22 May 1642; and Deborah, bapt. 9 June 1644. Other ch. were Thomas, the only s. and Leab, perhaps, both b. in Eng. but his will, made shortly bef. his d. instr. us that she was w. of Thomas Baker, Deborah, w. of Nathaniel Byfield, and Eliz. Stevens among ds. and sev. gr.ch. with conting. provision for gr. gr.ch. and his wid. was Ann. Surnames of either w. are not kn. High should be our esteem of C. wh. was one of only two mem. of the legislat. the Boston reps. in 1656, that voted against the law for putt. to d. Quakers, wh. ret. after banishm. Dr. Harris, with doubtful propriety, suppos. him to be one of three brs. Bray, Joseph, and Thomas, of D. 1630, commemo. in epit. on a gr.stone: Here lie three Clarks, their accounts are even, Entered on earth, carried up to heaven. Ano. THOMAS of Boston, early, adm. of the ch. 18 July 1640, and perhaps the freem. of 2 June 1641, was a blacksmith, and may have liv. on N. side of the harbor, call. Winnesimette, now Chelsea, by w. Eliz. had Cornelius, b. Dec. 1639, bapt. 19 July foll.; Jacob, 16, bapt. 22 May 1642; Rachel, 6 July 1646, d. at 7 yrs. and perhaps Benjamin, 4 May 1656. THOMAS, New Haven 1645, prob. d. bef. 1648. THOMAS, Lynn 1640, rem. to Reading, there d. 1693. *||THOMAS, Boston, call. jr. but tho. b. in Eng. he may not be s. of the Hon. Thomas, yet he liv. prob. some time, earlier or later, at Dorchester, was of ar. co. 1644, more than once its capt. rep. 1673-6, and d. 13 Mar. 1683. He was one of the wealthiest merch. of B. and by his will of 15 Aug. 1679, anew declar. 22 May 1680, pro. 22 Mar. 1683, it is judg. that only two ch. were then liv. Mehitable Warren, and Eliz. wh. had m. 28 May 1661, Mr. John [p.402] Freak, and was then w. of Elisha Hutchinson. To his wid. Eliz. he gives £80 a yr. and £50 in plate, to s. Warren £100, and to eldest s. of his d. Mehitable W. at 21 yrs. of age, or m. with consent of parents, £1000; but if she have no s. this to be equal. div. among ds. if God give them, also to ea. of said ds. at 21 yrs. or m. with consent £300; to s. Elisha H. £100, and to eldest s. of his d. Eliz. H. at 21 yrs. or m. with consent £1000; then to many relat. in Eng. to sis. Ann Haynes, Dorothy Muscate, and Joan Smith, sis. Stoughton, cous. i. e. neph. Thomas Smith; then to the ch. of wh. he was mem. £50, to ten of his poor kindr. £5 ea. to the poor of Boston £50, to the poor of Dorchester £20, to the art. comp. to purch. arms for poor mem. £10, with this striking final provis. “if both my ds. fail of posterity,” he gives “for a good hospital in Boston £1500,” and he made overseers his kinsm. William Stoughton, capt. John Richards, Mr. William Tailer, and Mr. Thomas Smith, and £10 to ea. of them. It is not easy to discrimin. betw. this Thomas and the first of the name, wh. was the speaker. Perhaps in Geneal. Reg. V. 398, the two in some particul. are confus. THOMAS, Reading, had first w. Else, wh. d. 28 June 1658, and he m. 31 Aug. foll. Mary, had Eliz. b. 3 Nov. 1659; and Thomas, 13 Oct. 1661. THOMAS, Hartford, s. of Nicholas, made freem. 1658, had (says Hinman, 203) Thomas, Daniel, and Joseph. THOMAS, Boston, early liv. on Noddle's isl. had d. Sarah, that m. 11 June 1662, George Hiskett. THOMAS, New Haven, master of the iron works there 1669. THOMAS, Ipswich, freem. 1674. THOMAS, Scituate 1674, by Deane lightly conject. to be s. or gr. s. of the mate of the Mayflower, because he came from Plymouth, m. 1676, Martha, d. of Richard Curtis, had Thomas, Joseph, Daniel, Samuel, Nathaniel, Mercy, Deborah, Rachel, Ann. Charity, and Mary. Bef. that m. he serv. in Philip's war. THOMAS, Chelmsford, s. of Jonas, ord. 1677, by w. Mary had Lucy; Eliz. both liv. to m. beside sev. wh. d. young; Jonas, b. 20 Dec. 1684; and Thomas, 28 Sept. 1694. His w. d. 2 Dec. 1700, and he m. 2 Oct. 1702, Eliz. d. of Rev. Samuel Whiting, and d. 7 Dec. 1704. He was an able man, and by the exercise of strong common sense, that (in so early a day) too many of the clergy were afraid to show, saved one woman, accus. as a witch. THOMAS, Yarmouth, m. 15 Feb. 1682, Rebecca, d. of the sec. John Miller of the same, had Susanna, b. 21 Feb. 1684; and Thomas, 25 Dec. 1685. THOMAS, Charlestown, m. 15 Oct. 1684, Sarah, d. of Joseph Lynde of the same, had Thomas, b. 22 June foll. He liv. on Malden side, I presume, d. early, and his wid. m. 12 Jan. 1692, Seth Sweetser. THOMAS, Newbury, s. of Nathaniel, by w. Sarah had Sarah, b. 25 Dec. 1690; Thomas, 2 Sept. 1692; Nathaniel, 23 Oct. 1694; Martha, 12 Apr. 1696; Mary, 16 Aug. 1698; and Daniel, 26 Jan. 1701. *TIMOTHY, [p.403] Boston, an import. man, was constable 1693; rep. 1700, capt. and some yrs. selectman. He was s. of the first Jonas by sec. w. d. 15 June 1737, aged 80. TRISTRAM, or THURSTON, Plymouth, came from Ipswich, Co. Suffk. in the Francis 1634, aged 44, prob. with w.

He had rem. to Duxbury, and d. 6 Dec. 1661; had s. Thurston, and Henry, both imbec. put under guardians. URIAH, Roxbury, s. of Hugh, by w. Joanna, in Boston, had Uriah, b. 5 Oct. 1677; but by w. Mary had at R. Thomas, 29, bapt. 30 Nov. 1679; John, 10, bapt. 12 Feb. 1682; Mary, bapt. 26 Aug. 1683, at the same time with her br. Uriah; and a ch. b. in Apr. 1685, that d. soon ; Hannah; Richard; rem. 1693 to Watertown, and had Peter, 12 Mar. 1694, H. C. 1712, a celebr. min. of Danvers, progenit. of a num. line; Benjamin, 6 Nov. 1696; Nathaniel, 20 June 1698; and Samuel, 15 July 1700. Soon after his w. d. and he m. 21 Nov. of that yr. third w. Martha Pease, had Susanna, 13 Nov. 1701, d. young; and Pease, bapt. 2 Aug. 1703. He was selectman 1699 and 1700; and d. 26 July 1721, in his will of 27 May preced. of wh. s.

Hastings on acco. of dec. s. Thomas, has tender remembr. yet it is not seen in Bond, that s. Pease was ment. in it. The name is pervert. to Uzijab in Geneal. Reg. V. 394. §†‡WALTER, Newport, eldest s. of Jeremiah (an absurd tradit. that he was b. a. 1637, on the ocean, prob. had its origin from the sound of his name, Water), by first w. Content, bur. 27 Mar. 1666, had, perhaps, near half of his ch. but one was a s. whose name is not told, and only Mary, b. 11 Jan. 1662, is ment. By sec. w. m. 1666, Hannah, d. of Richard Scott sec. of N. wh. d. 24 July 1681, he had Hannah, 28 Oct. 1667; beside other ds. Catharine, Content, and Deliverance, of wh. it is not kn. whether the sec. w. or a third was mo. of the youngest. His s. Jeremiah, b. 21 Feb. 1674, wh. d. young, was prob. his only one, if Francis, b. 17 Jan. 1673, were a d. as is supposed. The third w. was Freeborn, d. of famous Roger Williams, wid. of Thomas Hart, wh. he m. 6 Mar. 1683, and wh. d. 10 Dec. 1709. Late in life he m. 1711 fourth w. Sarah, d. of Matthew Prior of L.

He was a Quaker, and emin. for attract. confidence of his brethr. had been dept.-gov. bef. 1676, in wh. yr. of trial he was chos. gov. again in 1686, made one of Andros' Counc. by K. James II. when he unit. the N. E. cols. and gov. again after the separat. 1696, 7 and last in 1700, and d. 22 May 1714, aged 74. WESTON, Newport, br. of the preced. m. 25 Dec. 1668, Mary, eldest d. of Peter, not Nicholas (as sometimes said) Easton, [p.404] had Mary, b. 11 Jan. 1670; John, 15 July 1672; Weston, 18 Feb. 1675, d. soon; Weston, again, 15 Apr. 1677; and Jeremiah, 29 Nov. 1685. Yet this last may have been ch. of his sec. w. Rebecca, d. of Edward Thurston. WILLIAM, Ipswich, came, prob. in the fleet with Winth. desir. in Oct. 1630, adm. as freem. and was sw. 18 May foll. went with the earliest sett. 1633, to I. and may have rem. to other town bef. his d. for we kn. nothing more of him.

A careful writer in Geneal. Reg.

WILLIAM, Salem, was suppos. by Mr. Felt to be the man wh. wish. adm. as freem. 1630, tho. in my opin. he came first in 1634, by the Mary and John. He kept an ordinary, and was censur. by the governm. 1645, for offence in petitn. to Eng. See Winth. II. 301. By a former w. he had a s. and d. and by w.

He had been a soldier in Moseley's comp. in the gr. Narraganset fight, 19 Dec. 1675.

JOHN, Boston, s. of Samuel of [p.428] the same, was, prob. b. in Eng. m. 30 Dec. 1651, Susanna, youngest ch. of William Hutchinson, wh. had been tak. by the Ind. 1643, when they k. her wid. mo. had Samuel, b. 24 Mar. 1656; Mary, 6 Oct. 1658; John, 23 Jan. 1660, prob. d. soon; Ann, 7 Mar. 1661; John, again, 17 Jan. 1666; Hannah, 17 Dec. 1668; and William, 13 July 1671; perhaps Elisha, and other ch. whose names are not heard, rem. bef. 1664 to look after lds. of Hutchinson, to the Narraganset, when the jurisdict. of Conn. appoint. him and others to be magistr. there, and d. early in 1707.

JOHN, Boston, m. 10 Nov. 1659, Susanna, d. of Nicholas Upshur; but this rec. is more prob. of Joseph Cox, yet John and Susanna Cole by rec. had John, b. 22 Jan. 1661. JOHN, Hadley 1666, freem. that yr. is the same as Cowles. He was call. farmer, to disting. him from the other John, the carpenter, when both liv. at Hartford; and the object of change in surname was to prevent confus. but it has increas. the evil. As well as the carpenter John, this farmer had ch. John, Samuel, and perhaps others. JOHN, Duxbury, s. of Job, m. 21 Nov. 1667, Eliz. Rider; but this man is very indistinet. seen in Windsor, 247. JOHN, Swanzey 1669. JOHN, Farmington, s. of John, the Hartford carpenter, may be the man, wh. by w. Rachel had John, aged 24; Rachel, perhaps wid. of Joseph Smith, 21; Samuel, 13; and Nathaniel, 11, when his will of Sept. 1689, and his inv. of Nov. foll. were brot. in. But no slight uncertain. attends this inquiry. Ano. JOHN of Farmington, perhaps s. of the Cowles farmer, had Dorothy, bapt. 3 July 1681; and Lydia, 22 Mar. 1685. Under Cowles the cloud may be scattered or increas. JOHN, Gloucester, by w. Mehitable had Daniel, b. 14 May 1669. JOHN, Pemaquid 1674. JOHN, Groton, had a d. perhaps Hepzibah, b. 20 Feb. 1672.

Almost every word of Trumbull, and of Cothren. borro. from T. in relat. to the Roxbury deriv. of John, and William, is wrong; and must have been a tradit. of the mid. of the eighteenth century. Yet a true John of S. by w. Eliz. wh. d. as Cothren tells, 1682, beside that John of 1642, had Israel, Apr. 1644; Eliz.

But my confidence does not reach to all the statem. in a genealog. table, puld. in 1852, by a descend. that makes this last ch. b. “soon after his parents landed.” Prob. the compiler paid too much regard to an a trustworthy tradit. that they. “William and Eliz, emigra. from Scotland a. that time, i. e. 1667– that he was a seafar. man. and that be d. soon aft. land. in Mass. that Eliz. his wid. m. a man by the name of Baldwin. and sett. in Woburn.” The only William in Boston, wh. had near those days w. Eliz. had been here, I think, at least thirteen yrs. and to me it seems very improb. that he came from Scotland bef. 1655. I may not disbelieve, that he d. soon aft. b. of the only s. bat fourth ch. yet much do I doubt the story of wid's m. to a Baldwin of Woburn, for the only man at W. of that surname wh. had w. Eliz. was Timothy, and she bore him sev. ch. down to 1692, wh. is quite inconsist, with her being wd. of Boston Wittiam Brown.

Ann wh. d. soon; and m. 20 July 1651, Sarah, d. of Richard Thayer of B. had Samuel, b. 22 Mar. 1654; William, 4 Sept. 1656, d. next yr.; and Sarah, 19 Dec. 1657. Prob. he is the freem. of 1645, and perhaps br. of George. It may be, that his wid. m. 6 May 1663, Jonathan Hayward. SAMUEL, Groton, by w. Mary had a d. b. 31 Jan. 1662; John, 10 Mar. 1664; Sarah, 12 Aug. 1667; Samuel, 10 Jan. 1669; Barnabas, 17 Apr. 1672; and a d. 10 Apr. 1674; and d. 28 Dec. 1699. SAMUEL, Salisbury, m. 19 Dec. 1663, Deborah, d. of William Barnes, had Samuel, b. 26 Jan. 1667. Perhaps he was of Amesbury, there took o. of aleg. 20 Dec. 1677. SAMUEL, Concord, s. of Dolor, m. 11 Jan. 1665, Mary Mead, had Mary, b. 27 Sept. 1666; Samuel, 21 June 1669; Daniel, 26 Mar. 1673; Eliezer, Stephen; and Simon, 9 Aug. 1683. I presume this is the man, by Felt insert. as of Lynn, m. 11 Jan. 1666, Mary Meddowes. Geneal. Reg. V. 96. SAMUEL, Roxbury, perhaps s. of William of the same, rem. to Northampton 1668, was freem. 1676, had two ws. of wh. sec. was Eliz. d. of William Smead, m. 1681; and he d. 26 July 1690, leav. beside three ds.

SAMUEL, Charlestown, had serv. under Capt. Turner, 1676, in Philip's war, but as early as 22 Nov. 1658 by w.

Wilts, came in the James 1635, embark. at Southampton in Apr. arr. at Boston 3 June, freem. 2 June 1641, rem. next yr. to Haverhill, where he had s. Joseph, and d. 1683, aged 80. He brot. says Coffin, w. Christian from Eng. and his posterity is num. This name among the passeng. from Southampton in the James, by rec. at State Paper off. Somerby read Thomas James. It seems a wild error of his or mine; but if my read. be correct, his surname may be that of the ship. THOMAS, Saco, an early sett. assessed towards pub. worship 1636. THOMAS, Boston, s. of William, m. 12 Sept. 1689, Hannah Allen (wid. of one whom no research of mine, or even of Shurtleff, can identify), d. of Gov. Leverett, had Thomas, the Secr. of the Prov. of New Hamp. 1692. The late, beloved, John Davis, editor of Morton's Memo. Presid. of the Mass. Hist. Soc. above forty yrs. judge of the Distr. Court of the U. S. was not, in male line, of N. E. ancestry, but was s. of Thomas, wh. was b. 1722 at Albany, whither his f. had rem. from N. Carolina. ||TOBIAS, Roxbury, br. of Richard of the same, m. Sarah, d. of Isaac Morrill, had Sarah, b. 10 Feb. 1647, and his w. d. 23 Jan. by ch. rec. but 15 Feb. says the town, 1649. He m. 13 Dec. next, Bridget Kinsman, had John, b. 17 Apr. 1651; Tobias, 10 June 1653; Isaac, 7 Dec. 1655; Samuel, bapt. with the three preced. 12 June 1659, wh. d. young; Samuel, again, 24 Mar. 1661, d. at 18; and Abigail, in town rec. said to be b. 5 Sept. 1671; was of ar. co. 1666, and d. 25 Apr. 1690. TOBIAS, Dover, freem. 1666. TRISTRAM, Scituate, s. of Robert of Yarmouth, m. 1694, perhaps for sec. w. Sarah Archer of Braintree, had Eliz. b. 1695, and rem. as Deane thinks, but yet supposes Hannah D. wh. m. there 1709 to be a d. WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Mary had Abigail, b. 31 Oct. 1635, d. at 4 yrs.; Thomas, 15 Mar. 1637, d. young; Aaron, 20 July 1638, d. next yr.; John, wh. d. young, in 1641; Trine, 10 Aug. 1642; Mary, 3 Oct. 1644, perhaps d. soon; and Thomas, again, 3, bapt. 7 Sept. 1645. The Book of possessions in early days shows W. sen. and W. jr. in Boston, but wh. was f. of these ch. is to be determin. I fear, only by conject. One was a gunsmith, and one was d. 10 Nov. 1655, when Isaac Collamore gave in the inv. of his est. only £7. His wid. Mary soon m. John Cowdall. WILLIAM, New Haven 1639, had John, H. C. 1651, the scholar, bef. ment. lost on his voyage to Eng. He d. 1659, leav. wid. Martha, wh. [p.23] was sis. of John Wakeman, and d. 1663. His only surv. ch. Sarah m. William Russell, and to educate his s. Noadiah, the gr.mo. left £60. WILLIAM, Salem 1639, had that yr. gr. of ld. prob. rem. to Boston or elsewhere, may be the mariner, wh. at B. made his will 14 Sept. 1655, as in Geneal. Reg. V. 298, and Ib. IX. 141. *||WILLIAM, Boston, apothecary, adm. of the ch. 28 July 1644, in wh. yr. he m. Margaret, d. of William Pynchon of Springfield, perhaps a sec. w. By her he had sev. ch. of wh. Thomas, b. 3 Sept. 1645, may have been one; also, Benjamin; Eliz.; Ephraim, wh. d. 2 Aug. 1652; and William, the last, b. 25 June 1653; and his w. d. 3 July after. He m. next, Huldah, d. of Rev. Zechariah Symmes, had Mary, b. 3 Dec. 1656; Rebecca, 3 Aug. 1658; Huldah, 21 Dec. 1659; Ruth, 12 Feb. 1662; John, 10 June 1663; and Deborah, 13 Apr. 1665, d. young; by ano. w. Judith, had Margaret, 13 Nov. 1667; and perhaps Hannah. He had still ano. w. Sarah, and hope of progeny by her when he made his will, in wh. all of these ch. exc. Deborah, are ment. He was a man of wealth, enterprise, and discretion, ar. co. 1643, freem. 1645, a Capt. rep. for Springfield 1652, where prob. he liv. some few yrs. also for Haverhill 1668, was employ. as commander of a troop in Ninigret's troubles, joint commiss. in 1653 with Leverett to the Dutch Gov. at N. York, and one of the found. of the third ch. His will, made 17 May 1676, pro. 9 days after, being only two days after his d. gave £400 to w. Sarah, and contains many particulars. His wid. m. Capt. Edward Palmes of New London. WILLIAM, Roxbury, prob. br. of Tobias, freem. 1673, had John, b. 1 Oct. 1643; Samuel, 21 Feb. 1645; Joseph, whose date, presumed, is 12 Oct. 1649. His w. Eliz. d. or was bur. 4 May 1658; and he m. 21 Oct. next Alice Thorp, wh. had William and Eliz. bapt. 14 June 1663; but perhaps they were not liv. when this sec. w. d. 1667, prob. soon after b. of Jonathan, 28 Feb. of that yr. He had, also, Matthew, but I kn. not the day of his b. or whether he were not by a third w. made Extrix. but not nam. in his will of 6 Dec. 1683, in wh. he ment. all these ch. and that Matthew and Jonathan are under age. He d. 9 Dec. 1683, aged 66. WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Mary, d. of Nicholas Parker, had Joanna, b. 16 Aug. 1655; and I presume, that the same man by w. Susanna had Joanna, b. 26 July 1657, sold his est. in 1658, and went to Barbados. WILLIAM, Marblehead, a petitnr. 1668 against imposts. WILLIAM, Roxbury, perhaps s. of William the first of Boston, had Mary, b. 28 Mar. 1669; Ann, 24 Dec. 1670; next rec. of 1672 gives him Benjamin, 31 May, and Rachel, 26 Aug. but wh. rec. of the two is false is uncert.; perhaps the yr. 1674 is omit. for the latter ch. Ichabod, 1 Apr. 1676; Ebenezer, 9 Apr. 1678; William, 3 Jan. 1680; Sarah, 20 July 1681; and Isaac, 18 Apr. 1683; and a William, perhaps the same, d. there 23 Jan. 1706. WILLIAM, Boston, mariner, in his will 31 Oct. 1690, not pro. bef. 5 Aug. 1701, gives est. [p.24] to w. Mary, and childr. not nam. WILLIAM, Haverhill, m. 31 Dec. 1700, Mary, d. of John Kelly, jr. of Newbury. ZACHARY, Newbury, s. of John of the same, m. 4 Feb. 1681, Judith Brown, had Judith, b. 7 Sept. 1684, d. at 18 yrs.; and Eliz. 26 Apr. 1687. In many instance, some of the above nam. are spelled Davies, as well as Davis; and the utmost care, in arranging relationsh. betw. parties with a name so wide. diffus. will sometimes be at fault. “A courageous soldier,” is the designat. of a serj. D. in the Pequot war 1637; but wh. can individualize him? There came in the Elizabeth 1635, from London to Boston, Margaret Davis, aged 32, with her ch. John, 9; Mary, 4; and Eliz. 1; the w. and fam. no doubt of some person wh. had come a yr. or two bef. and to find the h. and f. may be the happiness of some more skilful inquirer. Twenty of this name had in 1834 been gr. at Harv. and as many more at the other N. E. coll.

Perhaps this caused Farmer to say that George, his f. was at R. bef. going to Woburn; but I find no ment. of this name at R. bef. the eighteenth cent. Caleb, a descend. of George, b. at Billerica, d. 5 Apr. 1833, aged 102, at Hollis, and the fm. is much diffused in that and neighb. parts of N. H.

Of this name, sometimes spelled without e, twenty had many yrs. ago been gr. at Harv. of wh. 7 were clerg. and twenty at other N. E. coll. of wh. 9 were clerg. That the Coll. catal. capriciously divides the fam. is plain eno. as Rev. Moses has the authentic Eng. letters, and his s. Rev. Samuel loses the [p.168] final letter. Much of the foregoing is deriv. from a very val. tract on Suff. Emigr. by Rev. Joseph Hunter, F. A. S. in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. X. 158, wh. informs us, that, at the Herald's office it appears, in early times, this fam. was entit. to coat armor.

He was deac. left ch. Sarah, Abraham, Joseph, and [p.189] James; and his wid. Abigail d. 4 June 1729. JACOB, Topsfield, freem. 1685, may have been one of the two preced. in all prob.

Bucks, ar. co. 1679, of the council of safety 1689, rep. 1690, at May session, for Portsmouth, where the inhab. earnestly desir. to continue the union with Mass. after the overthrow of Andros; Col. of Boston reg. named in the Chart. of William and Mary by approb. of Increase Mather, a couns. d. 9 Feb. 1711, says his gr.s. Gov. Hutch. II. 190. His wid. Abigail d. 5 Mar. foll. JOSEPH, Billerica, freem. 1690. REGINALD, or RENOLD, Ipswich, came, it is said, in 1638, had gr. of ld. 6 Apr. 1641, and brot. Abraham, Reginald, William, Isaac, and Jacob, beside two ds. of wh. Mary is report. without probabil. to have first m. a Wood, and next, when she must have been a very young wid. Francis Peabody. As to him, tradit. was rather wild, for tho. it seems prob. that all the ch. nam. in Geneal. Reg. I. 343, as there told, were b. in Eng. yet it does not give the d. Sarah, w. of William Story, and must be wrong a. Mary, w. of Peabody, as hav. first m. a Wood. It appears, also, that he had sec. w. Judith, wh. d. Oct. 1664, hav. brot. him Judith, 20 Jan. 1660; Mary, 18 June 1662; and John, 15 July 1664. Very remarkab. was the residue of his exper. and the relat. of it long distrust. by me, that he m. next, Sept. 1665, Sarah Martin, and had Ruth, b. 19 Dec. 1671, d. next mo.; Ellen, 14 June 1673; Hannah, 5 Oct. 1675; and Nathaniel, 19 Sept. 1678. Now this unusual blessing of fruit in old age, when the last ch. came fifty-six yrs. after the first, I doubted, might have arisen from mistake, and that both [p.190] the last ws. and their offspring should really belong to his s. Reginald, wh. might well have had Judith to w. bef. he took Eliz. Dane, and after d. of the latter have m. Sarah Martin, inasmuch as sen. and jr. are changeable characters, and he wh. was jr. on the d. of his f. would be call. sen. But this explanat. is not receivab. bec. the first Reginald d. 1681, as we infer from the date of inv. 30 May in this yr. and the Prob. rec. of his will of 30 Apr. bef. proving that he left w. Sarah, and ch. Abraham, Renold, Sarah, w. of William Story, Isaac, Jacob, William, and Mary, w. of Francis Peabody. REGINALD, Ipswich, s. of the preced. m. Eliz. d. of John Dane, sec. of the same, had Rebecca, b. 25 Feb. 1667, prob. d. young; Naomi, 6 May 1669; a ch. whose name is not seen, 17 Dec. 1671; and Rebecca, again, 1 July 1684. RICHARD, Plymouth 1651, m. 10 Sept. of that yr. Mary, d. of Robert Bartlett of the same; had Mary, b. 8 Mar. 1653; but he liv. not long, for his wid. m. 8 July 1659, Jonathan Morey. RICHARD, Charlestown, s. of William, by w. Parnell, d. of Isaac Winslow, m. 4 May 1686, had Parnell, b. 23 Feb. 1687, wh. d. young; Richard, 28 Nov. 1689, d. at 4 yrs.; Mary, 16 Feb. 1692; Richard, again, 23 Mar. 1694; Parnell, again, 25 Aug. 1696; Ann, 8 Nov. 1699; Sarah, 16 Nov. 1701; Isaac, 3 Jan. 1704, d. young; and Eliz. 21 Aug. 1706. *SAMUEL, Wenham, freem. 1650, rem. to Chelmsford in 1655; by w. Esther had there Edward, b. 29 Apr. 1657; Esther, 1 Nov. 1659; and Hannah, a. 1649; Samuel, a. 1650; and Eli, a. 1653; all bef. rem.; was deac. rep. 1679, d. 10 July 1702, aged 82. Allen, Hist. 117.

THOMAS, Boston 1641, had prob. come in the Hercules 1634, was empl. by the gov. as gunner at Castle isl. adm. of our ch. 26 Mar. and made freem. 18 May 1642. THOMAS, Weymouth, freem. 1647, had Thomas, b. 18 Aug. 1640; John, 7 Oct. 1642; and Increase. THOMAS, Braintree, had Hopestill, b. 26 Mar. 1648; and Joseph, 28 Mar. 1650. He may be the same as the last preced. THOMAS, Roxbury, m. 15 Oct. 1662, Sarah, d. of Robert Parker, had Thomas, b. 1 Aug. 1663, d. in few days; Thomas, again; Sarah, 3 June 1667; Hannah, 23 July 1669; and Jonathan, 21 Sept. 1671; freem. 1666. THOMAS, New London, call. in the rec. s. of John Forster of Kingsware, m. 27 Mar. 1666, Susanna, d. of Ralph Parker, had Susanna, b. 1667; Thomas, 26 Feb. 1669; Jonathan, 17 Aug. 1673; Mary, 14 June 1675; Edward, 1677, d. soon; Samuel, 1678; Rebeeca, 1681; and Ebenezer, 1683; was a master marin. trad. to Barbados and Boston, d. 1685. THOMAS, Cambridge, d. 16 Sept. 1679 (as town rec. says, but the gr.stone, 28 Oct.), [p.191] aged 39. Possib. this may be the freem. from Roxbury. THOMAS, Billerica, one of the early Bapt. was serg. d. 20 Apr. 1682, says Farmer; and he thot. he might be the Braintree man. TIMOTHY, Dorchester, s. of Edward, sold part of his paternal est. at Scituate, m. 13 Oct. 1663, Ruth, d. of Thomas Tileston, wid. of Richard Denton, by wh. (wh. d. 3 Dec. 1677), he had Ruth, b. 4 Aug. 1664; Eliz. 8 Sept. 1667, d. soon; Naomi, 11 Feb. 1669; Hatherly, 22 Sept. 1671; Rebecca, 1675; he m. 9 Mar. 1681, sec. w. Relief, wid. perhaps of John Dowse of Charlestown, had Timothy, b. 8 Jan. 1682; Edward, 22 Jan. 1683; Prudence, 3 Dec. 1684; Thomas, 3 Nov. 1686; and Eliz. again, 13 Oct. 1688; and d. 16 Dec. of the same yr. Many of the name at D. are of his descend. but Hatherly went to Scituate, there m. and his descend. still enjoy the est. that was his gr.f.'s. His f. made his will the day bef. his d. leav. w. Relief extrix. wh. m. Henry Leadbetter. WILLIAM, Ipswich, prob. s. of Reginald, perhaps came bef. his f. in the Hercules 1634, for he had gr. of land there 1635, says Felt; was disarmed Nov. 1637, as a follower of Wheelwright, and supporter of Mrs. Hutchinson, yet nam. with prefix of respect; and was in Sept. foll. “inform. that we conceive him not fit to live with us; therefore he was wished to depart bef. the Gen. Court in Mar. next.” Yet he may have, like not a few of his associate misbeliev. made his peace or been too much respected for his est. and thot. less dangerous soon after, and perhaps was of Rowley 1661, freem. 1677. WILLIAM, Newport 1639, with prefix of respect. WILLIAM, Salem 1638, sold his est. there 1641, and may possib. be either of the preced. but I think it more likely, rem. to Saco, for his br.-in-law Christopher Hobbs was by Court appoint. 1654 to admin. there his est. WILLIAM, Boston 1644, had w. Susanna, rem. I think in a short time to Charlestown, where he was adm. of the ch. Aug. 1652, m. sec. w. Ann, d. of William Brackenbury, had beside the Isaac, H.

Being an enterpris. merch. he was taken, with one of his s. by a Barbary corsair on the coast of Spain. From that captiv. his restor. is attribut. in the Magn. III. 183, to the untimely d. of the Dey, caus. by imprecat. of our Apostle Eliot. He d. 8 May 1698, aged 80, and his wid. d. 22 Sept. 1714 in 86th yr. WILLIAM, New Hampsh. 1644.

Perhaps he had est. at Braintree, but was adm. of our ch. 26 Mar. 1643, yet never a freem. tho. selectman of Boston in co. with Gov. Winth. He in Boston seems to have been among the most active, had the agent of Daulney, in the troubles of La Tour, to lodge at his house, and his ship was seiz. at London for dams. by the other party; in 1646 he was earnest for extens. of liberties, fined heavily, and went home in disgust, Nov. 1646.

[p.197] wid. of Charles Chadwick, wh. 22 Feb. 1685, left him again a widower, and he d. 25 Apr. 1693, aged 85. Prob. he had no ch. exc. Jabez, b. 1647, H. C. 1665, to bear up the uncert. tradit. honor, ascribed to him, of descent from the auth. of the Book of Martyrs. For these two Thomases, I have varied from Farmer in the dates, respectively, of freem.'s oath. The reason may be very slight, but the Concord man seems to have been the elder of the two; and tho. of the four names of freem., above and below those of these two Foxes, three are of Concord, yet two of them heard of not indeed bef. 1639, while Hayward, of those adm. early in 1638, was of Concord 1635, and, of course, Hutchins of Cambridge might seem to balance him; still the preponderance is for Concord. Certainly the Smeedly two were here some yrs. bef. being adm. freem. Bond boldly conject. p. 765, that he was the same as Thomas of Concord, in wh. I dare not follow his lead. He thereby makes the wid. of Percival Greene to be third w. and the wid. of Chadwick fourth w. of Thomas Fox. Seven of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and equal number at Yale, Brown, and Dart. coll.

Possib. he was one of the rison. taken by Cromwell at Worcester, and sent here for sale, 1651, in the John and Sarah, arr. at Boston, in May 1652; yet I think very few of that freight of misery liv. so long.

Edward was employ. in 1643, to bring, with others, the cattle of the Gortonists, taken near Providence, under the absurd pretence of being spoil of war. No doubt he was of the true, or popular faith, or he would not thus have been trusted; and this may, perhaps, render it less prob. that he was the same Edward subject. in 1639 to cens. by the Gen. Ct. for distemper. with wine. EDWARD, Lynn, frem. 1691, was, perhaps, s. of Robert of the same. GILES, Hampton, 1640, d. 2 Apr. 1673. JACOB, Salem vill. now Danvers, freem. 1690. JAMES, Ipswich, by w. Mary, had James, b. 2 Dec. 1673; Mary, 30 May 1675; John, 20 Feb. 1677; Eliz. 25 Feb. 1679; Daniel, 24 Feb. 1681; Nathaniel, 18 Feb. 1683; and Dorothy, 18 Dec. 1684. His wid. prob. liv. to 16 Oct. 1732, aged 85. JEREMIAH, Newton, s. of the first John of the same, was lieut. had bur. four ws. Mary, wh. d. 17 Aug. 1689; Eliz. wh. d. 1700, in which yr. he took Thankful, wh. d. 1729; and Rachel, d. 1742; by first and last had no ch. but by Eliz. had Eliz. b. 14 Apr. 1694, d. soon; and Jeremiah, 3 July 1697, d.

JOHN, Ipswich 1634, perhaps one of the first sett. at Salisbury 1639 or 40. *JOHN, Lynn 1644, may be the same as preced. was rep. 155 and 64, had s. John, William, and James, and d. 29 June 1666. JOHN, Cambridge, in that part now Newton, may seem the youth wh. came with John Winthrop, jr. in his sec. voyage in the Abigail 1635, call. 15 yrs. old, but that Jackson, wh. perhaps quotes the gr.st. says he d. 7 Feb. 1699, in 87th yr. and he was freem. 1690, tho. his first four s. were together made freem. ten yrs. earlier. His wid. Eliz. d. 13 Apr. 1700. He had John, b. 1645; Eliz. Jonathan, 1648; Joseph, 10 Feb. 1652; Joshua, 2 Apr. 1654; Jeremiah, 4 Feb. 1658; of wh. two were in Capt.

Narraganset fight, 19 Dec. 1675); Bethia, 23 Nov. 1661; and Isaac, 2 Feb. 1665, wh. d. 5 Oct. 1691. All the other five s. liv. from 74 to 98 yrs. Bethia m. 27 Feb. 1685, Nathaniel Bond; and Eliz. m. 1663, Job Hyde, and d. 28 Nov. 1685. Hon. Abraham, a descend. in 4th generat. b. 23 Mar. 1720, was rep. for N. 20 yrs. begin. 1764; and parts of the ancestr. est. are now enjoy. by the seventh and eighth degr. *JOHN, Lynn, s. of the first John of the same, was rep. 1674, and four yrs. in succ. was a lieut. d. 26 Apr. 1695, had s. John; Thomas; Edward; Elisha, b. 5 Apr. 1657; Joseph, 1 Nov. 1661; and Benjamin, 16 Dec. 1665; at wh. time his w. was Eliz.

JOHN, Rehoboth, m. 25 Apr. 1673, Abigail Titus, perhaps d. of John or Robert of the same, had John, b. 8 Sept. 1674, d. under two yrs.; Abiel, 30 Dec. 1676. One John, aged 15, came 1635, in the Abigail, and he may be the man of Lynn, or of Cambridge. JOHN, Barnstable, s. of Matthew, a physician, by first w. had Lydia, b. 1675; and by sec. w. Hannah, of Boston, whose surname is not found, had Bethia, b. Dec. 1687; John, Oct. 1689; and Reliance, 8 Sept. 1691. In this yr. he d. and his wid. m. 9 Dec. 1695, Capt. John Lothrop, it is thot. Of ano. at Barnstable, call. little JOHN (to disting. him from his cous. John, s. of Matthew wh. was elder), when his w. Mehitable was adm. of the ch. 30 Sept. 1688, and was s. of that Samuel wh. was s. of Edward, we kn. his ch. bapt. were Samuel, Thomas, and Shubael, on 21 Oct. foll. and Thankful, 19 May after; he rem. to East Haddam, there had John, 10 Nov. 1697; Joseph, 1 Mar. 1700; Benjamin, [p.217] 20 Oct. 1701; and Mehitable, 16 Apr. 1706; and perhaps others. JOHN, Newton, eldest s. of John of the same, freem. 1680 (ten yrs. bef. his f.), m. 1682, Abigail, perhaps d. of the sec. Thomas Boylston, had Sarah, b. 5 Oct. 1683; John, 2 Sept. 1685; Abigail, 8 Mar. 1688; James, 4 Feb. 1690; Hannah, 31 Aug. 1693; Isaac, 22 Nov. 1695; Jonathan, 13 Feb. 1698, d. soon; Jonathan, again, 28 Mar. 1700; Caleb, 24 Feb. 1702; and he m. 14 Oct. 1714, Margaret Hicks, and d. 1720. JONATHAN, Rehoboth, eldest s. of Robert of Salem, m. 14 Dec. 1664, Eliz. Wilmot, perhaps d. of Thomas, had Jonathan, b. 23 Dec. 1665; David, 11 Sept. 1667; Daniel, 6 Aug. 1669; Robert, and Thomas tw. 28 June 1671, of wh. one, if not both, d. soon; Robert, again, 2 Mar. 1673; Nathaniel, 1676; Eliz. 12 May 1678; Sarah, 23 Apr. 1680; Mary, 1 Oct. 1681; and Noah, 12 Feb. 1685. JONATHAN, Dedham, a. 1642, freem. 1671. JONATHAN, Dedham, the freem. of 1672, was, perhaps, s. of Robert of Dorchester, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 20 Apr. 1679, prob. d. young; Samuel, 15 Feb. 1682; John, 3 Dec. 1684; Mary, again, 21 Feb. 1687; Joshua, 23 Jan. 1689, d. soon; and Joshua, again, 15 Feb. 1692. His w. d. 29 Mar. 1701; and he d. 1720. JONATHAN, Newton, s. of the first John of the same, m. Mindwell, d. of deac. James Trowbridge, d. 12 Aug. 1722, aged 74, without ch. and his wid. d. 1758, aged 96. He was freem. 1680; and gave most of his est. to Jonathan, s. of his br. Joseph. JOSEPH, Newton, s. of the first John of the same, freem. 1680, was under Turner in the Falls fight, 1676, m. 13 Feb. 1681, Lydia, d. of Edward Jackson, wh. d. 12 Jan. 1726, had John, b. 15 Dec. 1681; Joseph, 4 July 1685; Jonathan, 7 Jan. 1687; Lydia, 15 Feb. 1692; Edward, 7 Mar. 1694; Isaac, 16 Mar. 1698; and Eliz. 1 July 1701; and he d. 5 Jan. 1740. JOSHUA, Newton, br. of the preced. freem. 1680, m. 7 June 1679, Eliz. d. of John Ward, had only ds. Eliz. b. 22 Feb. 1680; Hannah, 8 July 1682; Experience, 5 Nov. 1685; and Mercy, 11 Mar. 1689. His w. d. 6 Sept. 1691. By 2d w. he had Abigail, a. 1697; Sarah; and Ruth; d. 1752. He was in 89th yr. when he m. 19 July 1742, Mary Dana, in her 75th for third w. but they had no ch. LANCELOT, New Haven 1643. MATTHEW, Plymouth, a. 1640, s. of Edward the first, b. in Eng. rem. to Barnstable 1652, a physician, appoint. surg. of the force of the col. 1673, a capt. 1675, as Thatcher says, and d. 1678. By w. Frances he had Mary, wh. m. 17 Apr. 1650, Ralph Jones; Eliz. wh. m. 1652. Moses Rowley; Samuel; and John; and by Hannah, had Ann, wh. m. her cous. Samuel Fuller. ROBERT, Dorchester 1640, freem. 2 June 1641, by w. Ann had Jonathan, b. 15 Aug. 1643; rem. to Dedham, there had Benoni, 16 June 1646; and perhaps his w. d. very soon; by w. Sarah, had Sarah, 21 Sept. 1647; John, 26 Nov. 1649; Patience, 22 Feb. 1652; and Mary, [p.218] 1 Mar. 1654. His w. Sarah d. 1680, and he d. 14 Dec. 1688. ROBERT, Salem 1639, rem. to Rehoboth, there was freem. 1658, wh. he had visited perhaps fifteen yrs. bef. and may there have had one or more ch. of wh. we kn. only, that he calls Jonathan his eldest s. in a deed of 28 May 1696 for ld. in R. but had, also, Benjamin, old eno. to take deed of 1 Dec. 1679 for ho. and six acres at R. while he styles hims. in both, of Salem, bricklayer. Prob. he had been driv. in Philip's war from enjoym. of his est. and would encourage his s. to ascertain if it might be profit. in peace. By the rec. at R. his w. Sarah was bur. 14 Oct. 1676; and w. Margaret, wh. may not have been mo. of any ch. d. 30 Jan. 1700;and he d. 10 May 1706. Abigail, perhaps his d. m. at R. 16 Oct. 1679, Thomas Cushman. ROBERT, Lynn, freem. 1680, may be the same as preced. but not prob. SAMUEL, Plymouth 1620, one of the most valu. pilgrims of the Mayflower, the first physician that came to sett. in our country. He had been a deac. at least 8 yrs. at Leyden, tho. his w. Bridget, wh. came in the Ann 1623, with a ch. that, I think, liv. not long, may have been m. but short time bef. he left Holland. He brot. serv. William Butten, a youth, wh. d. bef. reach. the coast; had Samuel, and Mercy, b. here, both after 22 May 1627, and both liv. 1650; and d. 1633, betw. 30 July, the date of his will, and end of Oct. foll. when it was pro. His w. Bridget liv. until 1664. SAMUEL, Plymouth, neph. of the preced. made excor. of his will, was s. of the first Edward, and by him brot. in the Mayflower 1620; after d. of his parents, liv. with the uncle, and at the div. of lds. 1624, was count. I presume, out of respect to f. and mo. for three persons; freem. of the col. 1634, rem. to Scituate, thence to Barnstable, at Scituate hav. m. 8 Apr. 1635, Jane, d. of Rev. John Lothrop, had Hannah, wh. m. 1 Jan. 1659, Nicholas Bonham; Samuel, wh. was bapt. at S. 11 Feb. 1638, and may be the one wh. d. at Rehoboth 15 Aug. 1676; Sarah, tho. b. at S. bapt. at B. 1 Aug. 1641, d. young; and b. at B. were Mary, 16 June 1644, wh. m. Joseph Williams, 18 Nov. 1674; Thomas, 18 May 1651; Sarah, again, 14 Dec. 1654, wh. m. a Crow; and John; beside one, 8 Feb. 1658, wh. d. at a fortnight; and he d. 31 Oct. 1683; one of the latest Mayflowers. SAMUEL, Plymouth, s. of the first Samuel, was a preach. but seems to have been slow to rem. prob. giving his time to pious care of his mo. refus. invit. to Rehoboth after d. of Newman, but preach. at Middleborough sixteen yrs. and at last was ord. there when the first ch. was gather. 26 Dec. 1694, and d. 17 Aug. foll. in 71st yr. if his gr.stone be correct. Of this the doubt is almost invinc. for it would carry his b. to 1623 or 4, at least, whereas in the div. of cattle, May 1627, his f. head of the eighth lot, counts only for hims. w. and cous. or neph. bef. ment. Still stranger, however, to our modern notions, seems the nomin. of him as excor. of will, when he could not be [p.219] 8, and prob. was only 5 yrs. old. He had w. Eliz. but was not m. bef. 1650, ch. nam. in the will, pro. 1 Oct. 1695, Mercy, w. of Daniel Cole, perhaps his sec.; Samuel, b. 1659; Experience, w. of James Wood; John; Eliz. w. of Samuel Eaton; Hannah, w. of Eleazer Lewis, and Isaac, wh. was under age, as may have been the last d. By Lewis, in Hist. of Lynn, ed. 2, p. 111, this Samuel is call. br. of John, s. of Edward, and he speaks of his arr. in Boston 1630, so as to lead to confusion, if not starting from it. Deane, in Hist. of Scituate, seems almost as confus. as his br. Hist. of Lynn. The name of his w. is giv. in the ch. Hist. of M. as Brewster, and perhaps she was gr.d. of the noble William; she d. at Plymouth 4 Nov. 1713. Confusion, indeed, is often unavoida. With all the aid deriv. from books, and the scrupulous dilig. of Otis, I am uncert. whether SAMUEL, Barnstable, s. of the first Samuel of the same, wh. m. Ann, d. of his uncle Matthew and had Matthew, Barnabas, Joseph, Benjamin, Desire, and Sarah, were the same man as SAMUEL, Rehoboth, wh. m. 17 Apr. 1673, Mary Ide, perhaps d. of Nicholas. SAMUEL, Barnstable, s. of Capt. Matthew, by w. Mary had Thomas, Jabez, Timothy, Matthias, wh. d. unm. Abigail, Ann, and Samuel, posthum. b. 1676. THOMAS, Salem, perhaps 1638, in that N. W. part now Middleton, had Thomas, John, Jacob, Benjamin, Joseph, Samuel, and Ruth. THOMAS, Woburn, m. 13 June 1643, Eliz. Tidd, had Thomas, b. 22 or 30 Apr. 1644; Eliz. 12 Sept. 1645; Ruth, 17 May 1648; Deborah, 12 May 1650; John, 1 Mar. 1653; Jacob, 14 May 1655; Joseph, 8 Aug. 1658; Benjamin, 15 Apr. 1660; and Samuel, 9 May 1662. Prob. he was of Salem 1670, but perhaps went back to W. and m. 25 Aug. 1684, Sarah, wid. of John Wyman, d. of Miles Nutt. *THOMAS, Dedham 1643, by w. Hannah Flower, m. 22 Nov. of that yr. had John, b. 1 Nov. 1644, d. soon; John, again, 28 Dec. 1645; Eliz. 1 Apr. 1648; Hannah, 9 Nov. 1650; Thomas, 26 Feb. 1652, d. young; Mary, 25 Mar. 1655; Samuel, 25 Apr. 1657; Sarah, 3 Sept. 1659; and Thomas, again, 23 June 1662; freem. not in 1653, as Farmer said, but perhaps in 1672, was ensign, rep. 1673, 9, and 86. His w. d. 11 Apr. 1672; and he d. 28 Sept. 1690, hav. made his will four days bef. Eliz. m. the sec. John Kingsbury of the same, and next, 17 Sept. 1672, m. third Michael Metcalf. THOMAS, Dedham, prob. s. of Thomas of the same, freem. 1690. THOMAS, perhaps s. of Thomas of Woburn, m. 25 Aug. 1684, Sarah Wyman, may hav. liv. at Danvers, and been freem. 1690. *WILLIAM, Ipswich 1635, came that yr. in the Abigail, aged 25, with John, perhaps his br. aged 15, may have had w. Frances, rem. 1639 to Hampton, rep. 1667, d. 26 May 1693. WILLIAM, Concord, appoint. gunsmith May 1637, to accomp. the troops against the Pequots; was a miller there 1639; had Hannah, b. 8 Aug. 1641; and his w. Eliz. [p.220] d. 24 July foll. Possib. he was freem. 2 June 1641. WILLIAM, Hampton, prob. s. of William of the same, freem. 1678, m. 22 June 1680, Susanna, d. of Isaac Perkins, and wid. of Isaac Buzzell of Salisbury. Nine of this name had been gr. at Harv. in 1829, nine at Yale, three at Dart. and twenty-two at other N. E. coll. and at Union, of wh. twelve were clerg.
