crosses raguly azure, within atressure flory, of the second.

ermine maned and tufted of the first, between six ostrich 
feathers argent quilled or, Supporters — On either side a

a collar azure, within another gemel flory counter flory, 
gules therefrom a chain, reflexed over the back, gold,

third. Motto — Deo patria, amicis.

ADAM. 

ADAM. — The surname of Adam is of great anti- 
quity in Scotland, as proved by many documents in the 
public records. Duncan Adam, son of Alexander Adam, 
lived in the reign of King Robert Bruce, and had four 
sons, Robert, John, Reginald, and Duncan, from whom 
all the Adams, Adamsons, and Adies, in Scotland are 
descended. 

For the American ancestor see Adam Genealogy, 
1848, by William Adam. 

ADAMS. — This family is very numerous both in 
England and America, and owing to the similarity and 
repetition of Christian names it is almost impossible to 
locate all the original settlers. By far the largest number 
are descendants of Henry Adams of Braintree. This 
family claims descent in a direct line from Ap. Adam 
who came out of the " Marches of Wales."* 

The earliest record of the English branch of the 
Adam's family is that of John Ap Adam, of Charlton. 
Adam in Somersetshire, who married Elizabeth, daughter 
of and heiress to John Lord Gourmy, of Beviston and 
Tidenhaur, County of Gloucester, who was summoned to 




#t>ams. 



*Lords of the Marches were noblemen, who in the 
early ages inhabited and secured the Marches of Wales 
and Scotland, ruling as if they were petty kings, with 
their private laws, these were subsequently abolished. 



Parliament as Baron of the Realm, 1296 to 1307. In the 
upper part of a Gothic window on the southeast side of 
Sidenham church, near Chopston, the name of Jones 
Ab Adam, 1310; and " Arms, argent on a cross gules five 
mullets or," of Lord Ap Adam, are still to be found 
beautifully excented in stained glass of great thickness 
and in perfect preservation. 

This is probably one of the oldest church edifies in 
England. It originally stood within -the boundary of 
Wales, but at a later period, the boundary line was 
changed, and it now stands on England soil. 

HENRY ADAMS, of Braintree, (now Quincy), 
Mass., was the progenitor of the largest branch of the 
Adams family in this country. He is said to have 
emigrated to New England about 1634, and on Feb. 
1641, was granted forty acres of land by the town of 
Boston, of which Braintree was then a part. He brought 
with him eight sons, and was the great-great-grand- 
father of John Adams, second President of the United 
States, who erected a granite column to his memory in 
the churchyard at Braintree, on which was inscribed the 
following : 

In memory of Henry Adams, who took his flight 
from the Dragon of persecution in Devonshire, England, 
and alighted with eight sons near Mount Walloston. 
One of the sons returned to England, and after taking 
some time to explore the country, four removed to Med- 
field and the neighboring towns; two to Chelmsford. 
One only, Joseph, who lies here at his left hand, re- 
mained here, who was an original proprietor in the 
township of Braintree, 1639. 

This stone and several others have been placed in 
this yard by a great-grandson from a veneration of the 
piety, humility, sympathy, prudence, patience, temper- 
ance, frugality, industry, and perseverance of his ances- 
tors, in hope of recommending an emulation of their 
virtues to their posterity. 

The children oi Henry Adams of Braintree. were: 

HENRY (2), born 1604; settled at Medfield, Mass. 

THOMAS, born in England, 1612; settled at 
Chelmsford, Mass. 

SAMUEL, born 1617, settled at Chelmsford, died 
1666. 

JONATHAN, born 1619, settled at Medfield. 

PETER, born 1622, settled at Medfield. 

JOHN, born 1624, settled in Concord; afterward 
West Cambridge. 

JOSEPH, of Braintree, now Quincy, Mass., who 
died and was buried there. 

EDWARD, born 1620, settled at Medfield; died 
1716. 

Ursula, named in her father's will. 

Among the other branches of the Adams family of 
which there does not appear to be any direct connection 
are: 

JOHN, who came to Plymouth in the ship "For- 
tune," November 11, 1621. 

WILLIAM, of Cambridge, 1635; removed to Ips- 
wich, Mass., before 1642. 

ROBERT, of Ipswich, 1635; Salem, 1638; Newbury, 
1640.

ARMSTRONG. 

Tradition states that the original surname of this 
family was Fairbairn, and that it was changed to Arm- 
strong on the following occasion: An ancient King of 
Scotland having his horse killed under him in battle, 
was immediately remounted by Fairbairn (a man of 
powerful physique,) on his horse. For his timely as- 
sistance the king amply rewarded him with lands on the 
Borders, and to perpetuate the memory of so important 
a service, as well as the manner in which it was performed 
(for Fairbairn took the king by the thigh and set him 
on the saddle,) his royal master gave him the appellation 
of Armstrong — strong-of-arm — and assigned him for a 
crest " an armed hand and arm, in the hand a leg and 
foot in armour, cbuped at the thigh — all ppr." The 
most complete coat armour of the family of the present 
time is Arms — Sable three dexter arms conjoined at the 
shoulders and flexed in triangle or, turned up (or cuffed) 
argent, the hands clenched ppr. Crest — A dexter arm 
vambraced in armour, argent the hand ppr. Motto — Vi 
et armis.

ough acquaintance with the manners and languages of 
the aborigines, became the most effective auxiliary in all 
negotiations with them. In 1653 he removed to New- 
port, was chosen Assistant next year, and in 1663, made

BACON. 

Of this family Burke says: " Various conjectures have 
been hazarded as to the origin of Bacon, but to little 
purpose. But it matters not, the antiquity of the family 
is beyond dispute; and there are few houses in the 
kingdom more distinguished by the production of great 
and eminent men. Besides Friar Bacon, the marvel of 
his day, Sir Nicholas Bacon, and the great Lord Bacon, 
there were five other extraordinary personages of the 
same family." 

This family bore Arms — Gules on a chief argent two 
mullets, pierced, sable. Crest — A boar, passant, ermine. 
Afotfo— Mediocria firma. 

ANDREW BACON, of Hartford, Conn., one of the 
original proprietors, born, probably, in Rutlandshire, 
Eng., had, perhaps, been of Cambridge. He was a rep- 
resentative 1642 to '56, and soon after removed to Had- 
ley, Mass., and died 1669. His wife Elizabeth was 
widow of Timothy Standley. 

NATHANIEL BACON, Middletown, Conn., 1653, 
is called son of William of the parish of Stretton, County 
Rutland, Eng. By wife Ann, daughter of Thomas Mil- . 
ler, he had Nathaniel, 1655, Hannah, Andrew, Nathaniel 
again, 1659, whose name was changed for Thomas; John, 
Andrew again, Abigail, Lydia. He was a nephew of 
Andrew and had part of his uncle's estate. 

WILLIAM BACON, of Salem, Mass., 1640. He had 
married Rebecca, daughter of Thomas Porter, and had 
Isaac, 1641, and William. He died in 1653. They lived 
in Dublin, and on the outbreak of the Irish rebellion, she 
was sent over here, says tradition, and her husband fol- 
lowed her. 

MICHAEL or MIGELL BACON, of Dedham, Mass., 
1640, brought, it is said, from Ireland four children, 
Michael, Daniel, John and Samuel.

sable, on a chief of the second three mullets of the first. 
Crest — Out of the clouds proper a demi lion rampant 
sable, powdered with estoiles argent, holding a globe, or.

BRADFORD :— Governor William Bradford, of ' the .

GENEALOGICAL GUIDE TO THE EARLY SETTLERS OF AMERICA. 



the Bradfords of New England. No connection direct has 
been traced between him and William Bradiord, the Quak- 
er printer of Philadelphia and New York. 

The name of Bradford is derived from the Saxon Brad- 
enford, or Broadenford, and is doubtless very ancient. 
Two towns of considerable size in England are known by 
this name — one in Wiltshire near Bath ; the other in York- 
ham near Leeds. The latter is supposed to have been the 
locality from whence originated the great founder of the 
name in the United States. 

The family was doubtless one of considerable antiquity. 
With the exception of three or four generations previous 
to that of Gov. Bradford, little is known of the early his- 
tory of the family. The fact that Burke gives twelve dif- 
ferent coats of arms .belonging to the Bradfords is an evi- 
dence that they were a family of some distinction. The 
Yorkshire and Wiltshire branches of the family have the 
arms as those described as belonging to the Governor 
William Bradford line, viz : Arms — Argent on a fesse 
sable three stags' heads erased. Crest — A stag's head 
erased or. 

Governor William Bradford,' son of William and 
Alice (Hanson) Bradford, was born in the village of Aus- 
terfield, Yorkshire, England, March 29, 1590. His father 
died the following year, and he was then adopted into the 
family of his grandfather, William, and after the latter's 
death in 1596, he was placed in the family of his uncle, 
Robert. He early became associated with Elder William 
Brewster and other non-conformists, and when but eigh- 
teen years of age he suffered imprisonment in Boston, 
Lincolnshire, for his religious belief. He finally escaped 
and reached Holland, where he apprenticed himself to a 
Frenchman, who taught him the art of silk weaving, and 
soon after reaching his majority he started in business for 
himself. His first marriage to Do'rothy May, of Witez- 
buts, England, took place Nov. 13, 1613. The "bans" 
were published in Leyden, announcing the coming mar- 
riage as follows: November 15, 1613, William Bradford 
fustian maker, young man from Osterfeldt in England, 
affianced to Dorothy May frorn W et ezbuts, England, 
There was a sad ending to this his' first love, for soon 
after the arrival of the Mayflower, and while her husband 
was absent on an expedition around Cape Cod Harbor. 
Dorothy fell overboard and was drowned. 

From this. time forward William Bradford's part in the 
fortunes of the community were important and powerful. 
After the first Governor, William Carver, died, Bradford 
was elected to that office, which he held by annual election 
until his death, excepting the years 1633, '34, '36, '38 and 
'44. He took a prominent part in all the councils which 
were held at his house, and in all the affairs, civic, political 
and military. From his house at the foot of Burial Hill, 
each Sabbath morning the little company of worshipers, 
who all assembled there, marched in procession up the 
steep ascent to its top, where the religious services were 
held. 

One of Gov. Bradford's first acts on assuming the ex- 
ecutive was to send an embassy, July, 1621, to confirm the 
league entered into with the Indian Sachem Massasoit, the 
most influential and powerful of the native chiefs. His 
friendly relations with the Indians, who had known the 
English only as kidnappers, were essential to the continued 
existence of the colony and its future prosperity. When 
a famine threatened the colonists two years later, he ob- 
tained assistance from the Indians. 



In 1624 the Governor and his assistants were consti- 
tuted a judicial court; and afterwards the supreme trib- 
unal of the colony; in 1629 legislation, in which up to that 
date all the freemen took part, was vested in the General 
Court, to which all of the towns sent representatives. 

In 1629 a patent was obtained from the New England 
Council — a band of noblemen who in 1620 received from 
King James absolute property in the country lying be- 
tween 40 and 48 degrees of north latitude — conferring 
upon William Bradford, his .heirs, associates and assigns 
the title to the land on which Plymouth plantation was 
situated. In 1640, at the request of the General Court, 
Governor Bradford conveyed to it the title of the colony, 
reserving to himself his proportion as a proprietor. 

By his wife, Dorothy May, the Pilgrim Gov. Bradford 
had only one child! 

John Bradford born before the inauguration. He was 
of Duxbury 1645, an d in 1652 he was a deputy to the Gen- 
eral Court and a Lieutenant. He removed to Marshfield 
and represented that town at the General Court in 1653. 
He married Martha, daughter of Thomas and Martha 
Bourne, and in 1653 removed to Norwich, Conn. 

Gov. Bradford married 2d, Aug. 14, 1623, Alice, daugh- 
ter of Alexander Carpenter of Wrentham, England, the 
widow of Edward Southworth. By this marriage he had 
William, Mercy and Joseph, , 

Major William Bradford, the oldest child of Governor 
William and Alice (Southworth nee Carpenter) Bradford, 
was born June 17, 1684. He was next to Miles Standish 
the chief military man in the colony, and in the Indian 
wars, in which he took a prominent part he held the rank 
of Major. He was Assistant Treasurer and Deputy Gov- 
ernor of Plymouth Colony from 1682 to 1686 and from 
1689 to 1691, and the latter year was one of the Council 
of Massachusetts. Pie married 1st Alice, daughter of 

Thomas Richards; 2d, widow Wiswall. By his 

first wife he had :

Joseph Warren.

Major James Fitch, son of Rev. James Fitch, of Say- 
brook and Norwich, Conn.

William Bradford, the printer, son of William and 
Annie Bradford, was born in Leicestershire, Eng., May 
23, 1663; died in 1752. There'is no evidence that he was 
immediately related to the Pilgrim, but both, no doubt, 
had a common origin. He served an apprenticeship with 
Andrew Sorole, printer and publisher of Quaker books 
in Grace Church street, London. It is believed that he 
came over with William Penn and his company in the ship 
''Welcome." He was recommended as "a sober young 
man who comes to Pennsylvania to set up the trade of 
printing Friends' books," etc. In 1686 he published Bur- 
nyeat's Epistle, with the imprint "Printed and sold by 
William Bradford, near Philadelphia." He removed to 
New York in 1693 and was appointed Royal Printer in 
Oct., 1725. He established the New York Gazette, which 
was the first newspaper printed in the colony. He was 
buried by the side of his wife in Trinity church-yard, New 
York city, where a simple slab marks his resting place. 
His son Andrew, who learned the trade of his father and 
became a partner, removed in 1712 to Philadelphia. On 
Dec. 19, 1719, he published the first number of the 
American Weekly Mercury — the first newspaper founded 
in the Middle States, which he continued until his death. 

William Bradford, Jr., brother of Andrew, born 1688, 
was a printer and seaman. He served an apprenticeship 
with his father, but, owing to failing health, adopted a 
seafaring life. He had a son William. 

William Bradford (3), son of William, Jr., was born 
in New York City, 1719. He learned the art of printing 
with his uncle Andrew and became his partner in 1739. 
In 1742 he started the Pennsylvania Journal and Weekly 
Advertiser. He earnestly espoused the cause of American 
Independence and his paper bore as a heading from July, 
' 1774, to Oct., 1775. a peculiar device . 



He served as Major in a Philadelphia regiment of mil- 
itia at the battle of Trenton, was wounded at Princeton, 
and returned home as colonelof his regiment. He died in 
Philadelphia, Sept. 25, 1791, and was buried in the Sec- 
ond Presbyterian churchyard on Arch street.

BREWSTER: — Francis Brewster, of New Haven, 
1640, came from London probably with his wife Lucy 
and family, including nine persons. He is supposed to 
have been the father of Nathaniel, who graduated in the 



first class at Harvard 1642, and of Joseph. His widow 
married Thomas Pell. 

Nathaniel Brewster, son of Francis, of New Ha- 
ven, went to England, where he was settled as a minister 
at Abby, in County Norfolk. He returned and was set- 
tled at Brookhaven in 1665. He married Sarah, daugh- 
ter of Roger Ludlow ,and had John, Timothy, Daniel. 

Elder William Brewster, of the "Mayflower," one 
of the earliest of the distinguished Puritan laymen in 
England, was probably born in 1563, at Scrooby, in Not- 
tinghamshire, at the manor hall of which village belonged 
to the archbishop of York. He afterwards long resided 
at the same house at which Cardinal Woolsey had made 
his last stop before reaching home in his final journey on 
compulsory retirement from court, after banishment by 
King Henry VIII. Elder Brewster was of good family, 
his coat of arms being identical with that of the ancient 
Suffolk branch. He entered Cambridge University and 
remained there for a short time, and about 1584 entered 
the service of William Davison, Ambassador, and after- 
wards Secretary of State to Queen Elizabeth, and with 
him visited the Netherlands, remaining in his service two 
years. He then abandoned politics, devoted himself earn- 
estly to the cause of religion and was the first prominent 
layman who rejected conformity to the ceremonies of the 
Church of England- He filled for a time the position of 
postmaster at Scrooby, and continued until his associate 
separatists had become obnoxious to the ecclesiastical 
authorities, and in 1607 he embarked with them and his 
young friend Bradford in a sloop at Boston, bound for 
Holland, intending to flee the country. But the captain 
of the vessel betrayed them and Brewster with others was 
arrested, imprisoned and bound over for trial. In the 
summer of 1608 he sailed from Hull and reached Am- 
sterdam in safety. Having spent most of his substance 
in effecting his own escape and aiding his poorer associ- 
ates , he was obliged to resort to teaching for a living. 
With the aid of friends he set up a printing press and 
printed a series of religious books that were contraband 
in England. He was ruling elder of the church at Leyden. 

Through the assistance of his friend, Sir Edwin 
Sandys, treasurer of the Virginia company, he obtained a 
grant of land in North America, and in September, 1620, 
he set sail in the "Mayflower" with the first company of 
Pilgrims, landing at Plymouth Dec. 21, 1620. 

Brewster was Ruling Elder of the church, and until 
1629 acted as teacher and minister, enduring the hard- 
ships of the memorable first winter with wonderful cour- 
age and cheerfulness. His family which came on the 
"Mayflower" consisted of his wife: Lucretia, wife of Jon- 
athan, a son who came out in the "Fortune" in 1621, and 
two sons, Wrestling and Love. 

His daughters Patience and Fear came in the "Ann," 
1623, and on Aug. 6 of the following year Patience mar- 
ried Thomas Prince, afterwards Governor. Fear married 
in 1626 Isaac Allerton, the first Associate of Governor 
William Bradford. His other children were Jonathan 
and Wrestling. 

Love Brewster married, March 15, 1634, Sarah, 
daughter of William Collier. He moved to Duxbury, 
Mass., and had issue, three sons and one daughter- 

Jonathan Brewster, the eldest son of Elder Will- 
iam Brewster, was born at Scrooby, in County Notting- 
ham. He went with his father to Holland, where he was 
left to the care of two sisters, with his own family. He 
came in the "Fortune" in 1621. He was Associate Judge, 
and established by appointment a trading post on the lands

purchased of Uncas,' chief of the Mohigans, and after- 
wards called Brewster's Neck. He gave notice to John 
Winthrop, governor of the fort at Saybrook, of the evil 
designs of die Piquots. 

He settled subsequently in Duxbury, Mass., where 
he was was a representative of the first General Court 
in 1639; removing thence to New London, Conn., before 
1640. By wife Lucretia he had William and Mary, born 
in Holland; Jonathan, Benjamin, Grac>, R.iih, Hannah, 
Elizabeth.

resentative at Hartford, and soon after went to Fairfield,

purchasers of the Island of Aquidneck, and partner in 
the civil compact. In 1643 he was engaged in the pur- 
chase of Warwick, with Gorton and others, and for sus- 
taining his and their right, was made prisoner, brought 
to Boston, and sentenced to be incarcerated at Roxbury, 
in irons, not to depart on pain of death. The government 
discharged him and his fellow-sufferers the next year with 
sentence of banishment on pain of forfeiting life on com- 
ing back. By wife Mary he had John, Sarah, James 1655,

Willet, son of Capt. Thomas, who died Feb. 2, 1664; and

patriarch died at Charlestown, April 9, 1689, aged about 
eighty-six.

COLT:— John, of Windsor, 1668, lived to old age, 
had Sarah, baptized at Hartford, says Hinman, Feb. 7, 
1647, and several sons of whom one or more settled at 
Lyme. In his second edition 672-8, Hinman gives many 
names of descendants yet with no precision of line. But 
the original is quite mythical. The settler was born in 
Colchester, Co. Essex, about 50 minutes from London, 
came to Dorchester, when about 11 years old, removed 
to Hartford about 1638, as says the book, with no inher- 
ent probability, .but it is sure to encourage distrust of 
such tale, that he is made great-great-great-grandson 
of a peer of England, who was dispossessed of his estate, 
etc. Such examples may, I hope, be shunned and not 
imitated. Mr. Hinman had too respectable a name to 
encourage the relations of such old wives' inventions..

son Francis got grant of land in his father's right.

ordered provision for Barlow's only child and his widow 
who married John Warren as his second wife and died 
early in 1672.

CON ANT:— Christopher, of Plymouth, 1623, came in 
the Ann, had share in division of land next year but was 
gone in 1627, perhaps to Cape Ann, for he had not shared 
in the division of cattle ithat year. But if he had gone 
home, he must have come back to our country, for he 
was on the first jury for criminal trial here, impanneled 



for the case of Walter Palmer, for manslaughter, Nov. 
1630, having been in 1623, at Plymouth, next at Nan- 
tasket, thence removed to Cape Ann, there resided be- 
tween one and two years and removed to Naumkeag, 
about 1627. He was son of Richard and Agnes, brother 
it is said of Dr. John of the great Assembly of Divines 
at Westminster, born in the hundred of E. Budleigh, bap- 
tized at the parish church of the same, in Devonshire, 
April 9, 1593; appointed 1625, governor, agent, or super- 
intendent for the Dorchester projector of the plantation 
as Endicott, who superseded him, was, 1629, for the 
Governor and Comptroller of Mass. before the coming 
of Winthrop, the first Charter Governor in the country. 
(Felt. I, 106; Hubbard, 109, 10.) Gibbs says his grand- 
father John, was of French, i. e. Norman, extraction, his 
ancestors for many generations having been at Gittis- 
ham, between Honiton and Ottery St. Mary's. He 
requested to be freeman Oct. 19, 1630, was admitted May 
18 following, was representative at the first general Court 
of Mass., 1634, died Nov. 19, 1679, in 87th year at Beverly 
(which he earnestly desired to be named Budleigh). 
Young, Chronicle 24, gives him four sons, I think, he 
had five; but even the assiduous fondness of Felt, in a 
Memorandum of great diligence filling fourteen pages of 
Geneal. Reg., II, has not furnished complete family ac- 
count. His abstract of the will, made March 1, 1678, 
refers to son Exercise and children; son Lot's ten child- 
ren; grandchildren John, son of Roger ; grandchild Joshua 
Conant, whose father may have been John, or Roger; 
daughters Elizabeth Conant, probably never married; 
Mary, widow of the second William Dodge, and her five 
children; Sarah, and her children John and four daugh- 
ters; a grandchild Rebecca Conant, whose father may 
have been either of the sons, John or Roger, beside 
cousin Mary, wife of Hilliard Verin, but whose daughter 
is unknown; Adoniram Veren, and his sister Hannah, 
with her two children and three daughters of his cousin 
James Mason, deceased and it is equally unknown who 
she was. Of Exercise; perhaps the third son, born at 
Cape Ann, about 1636, baptized Dec. 24, 1637; Joshua; 
and Lot, above, is all that is known to me; John was of 
Beverly church, 1671, probably died before his father; 
Roger, the first born child at Salem, is spoken next. His 
wife Sarah, but neither he nor wife united early with 
the church.

Hannah, March 13, 1660. He died April 19, 1679, and 
his wife died three days after, probably of small-pox. 

Edward Convers, of Charlestown, came in the fleet 
with Winthrop, 1630, with wife Sarah, and children; 
requested Oct. 19, to be, and, May 18, following was 
admitted freeman. They were dismissed from our church 
to be among the first of that in Charlestown, where he 
was selectman 1634-40, had grant of first ferry to Boston 
in 1631, removed 1643 to Woburn, was representative 
1660, and deacon. His wife Sarah, died Jan. 14, 1662. 
He may have been father of all in this region, except 
Allen, and perhaps, was his brother; died Aug. 10, 1663. 
His daughter Mary, married Dec. 19, 1643, Simon 
Thompson, who died 1658; she married a Sheldon next 
year. His will, of Aug. 1659, names wife Sarah, sons 
Josiah, James and Samuel, Edward, son of James, as 
well as alludes to others, children of daughter Mary 
Thompson, who was then wife of Sheldon, kinsmen Allen 
Convers and John Parker, kinswoman Sarah Smith.

Elizabeth, Oct. 29, 1672; Ruth, Oct. 3, 1674, died at 3 
months; and he died Jan. 22, 1679. Of this name, spelled 
sometimes with "i" for "e" and often with final "e," 
though the soldier wrote it, as I have; two had, in 1834, 
been graduates at Harvard and eight at other New Eng- 
land colleges.

Francis Cook, of Plymouth, came in the Mayflower, 
1620, with one child, John; his wifWisther, and other 
children Jacob, Jane, and Esther, coming in the Ann, 
1623, so that he counted six shares in division of lands 
1624; and in 1626, was born Mary, and he had seven 
shares at division of cattle. He was called by Bradford,

George Cook, of Cambridge, came in the "Defence," 
1635, aged 25, with elder brother Joseph, in Harlaken- 
den's company, in the ship's clearance at the London 
custom house called with others, servants of Harlaken- 
den for description of the government, no doubt, for in 
the year following our record gives both the prefix of 
respectable; freeman March 3, 1636; representative 1636- 
42-5, and speaker 1645, artillery company 1643, captain, 
by wife Alice, had Elizabeth, born March 27, 1640, who 
died August following; Thomas, born June 19, 1642, 
died at 2 months; Joseph Dec. 27, 1643; Elizabeth again, 
August 21, 1644; and Mary August 15, 1646. He went 
home, and was a colonel on service in Ireland, there 
died or was killed 1652. His daughter Mary, married, it 
is said, Samuel Annesley, Esq., of Westminster, called 
"her mother's younger brother," with whom she was 
living 1691; and Elizabeth married Rev. John Quick of 
St. Giles, Cripplegate, London. Administration on his 
estate here was granted 1653, to President Dunster and 
Joseph Cooke. 

Gregory Cook, of Cambridge, shoemaker, by wife 
Mary, who died August 17, 1681, had Stephen, born 
about 1647; and Susanna, who died Nov. 13, 1674; lived 
in that part now Newton, in 1672; next year was of 
Watertown, yet had some years been at Mendon, was 
there selectman 1669; of Watertown again, 1684, and at 
Cambridge was selectman 1678, and after; married Nov. 
1, 1681, widow Susanna Goodwin, and died Jan. 1, 1691, 
and his widow married Sept. 15, following Henry Spring. 

Henry Cook, of Salem, 1638, married June, 1639, 
Judith Burdsall, died Dec. 25, 1661, when his inventory 
is produced and his children named with their ages, 
Isaac, 22; Samuel 20; John, 14; Judith, 18; Rachel, 16; 
Mary and Martha, 12; Henry 8; and Hannah 4. 

Isaac Cook, of Salem, married May 3, 1664, Elizabeth, 
daughter of Anthony Buxton, had Elizabeth, born Sept. 
23, 1665; Isaac, Jan. 9, 1667, and Mary Nov. 12, 1668. 

James Cook, of Boston, died Dec. 15, 1690. 

John Cook, of Plymouth, 1633, called senior, prob- 
ably removed 1643, to Rehoboth, is not known to have 
been relative of the succeeding. Perhaps he removed 
to Warwick, was town-sergeant 1651, freeman there 
1655, and probably died that year, for his widow Mary 
married 1656, Thomas Relph. He left son John, and 
daughter Elizabeth, who married Dec. 24, 1666, John 
Harrod. 

John Cook, of Salem, 1637, came, perhaps, in thte 
Abigail, 1635, aged 27, freeman May 18, 1642, had Sarah, 
baptized Sept. 19, 1640; Elizabeth May 16, 1641; and 
Mary, Oct. 22, 1643. He died, I suppose, in 1650, when 
his inventory was brought in. 

John Cook, of Ipswich, 1664. 

John Cook, of Portsmouth, R. I., 1655, of whom I 
learn no more, unless that he has wife Ruth in 1682, 
then was 51 years old, and John Jr., probably his son, 
was 26, and other sons Joseph and Thomas, beside several 
daughters, and his will was recorded 1691. As early as 
1647, he was made one of two "water bailies" of the 
Colony, if there be no mistake. One John, a young 
man, Winth. II, 97, says, was killed by accident at 
Boston, June 23, 1643; and a John was at Windsor, 1644. 

John Cook, of Boston, was of the vestry of King's 
Chapel, 1689; and a John, a soldier in the company of 
Moseley, Dec, 1675, and again in Philip's war, 1676, at 
Hadley; may have been of Gloucester, married Feb. 2, 



1680, and Mary Elwell, had John, born Nov. 20, 1680. 

John Cook, of Middletown, at his death Jan. 16, 1705, 
left children John and Mary, of full age ; Daniel 14 years ; 
Sarah, 12; Ebenezer, 7. His wife Hannah, daughter of 
Capt. Daniel Harris, could not have been the first. His 
will was made Aug. 15, 1698. 

John Cook, of Hampton, married Nov. 26, 1686, 
Mary Downs. 

Joseph Cook, of Cambridge, elder. brother of George, 
came in the Defence, 1635, aged 27. They were of 
Earl's Colne in Essex, and there had enjoyed the spirit- 
ual guidance of Shepard, who came in the same ship 
"Freeman," March 3, 1636; representative 1636-40, 
artillery company 1640; had wife Elizabeth and children 
Elizabeth, March 16, or August, 1645; Mary Jan. 30, 
1647; Grace Dec. 9, 1648, died soon; Grace, again May 
1, 1650; and Ruth; all baptized at Cambridge. I think 
it not unlikely, that after administration on his brother's 
estate he went home. 

Joseph Cook, of Wells, swore allegiance, 1680. 

Josiah Cook, of Plymouth, married Sept. 16, 1635, 
Elizabeth, widow of Stephen Deane, daughter of widow 
Mary King, freeman 1637, removed with Gov. Prence 
to Eastham, had Josiah and Ann, who married Jan. 18, 
1655, Mark Snow, and died July 7, 1656; Bethia, who 
married April 4, 1660, Joseph Harding; and died Oct. 

17, 1673; and his widow died about 1687. 

Nathaniel Cook, of Windsor, married June 29, 1649, 
Lydia, daughter of Richard Vore, had Sarah, born June 
28, 1650; Lydia, Jan. 9, 1653; Hannah, Sept. 21, 1655; 
Nathaniel, May 13, 1658; Abigail, March 1, 1680; John, 
August 3, 1662; and Josiah, Dec. 22, 1664. He was 
admitted freeman of Conn., 16Z0, and died May 19, 1688. 
The widow died June 14, 1698. Sarah married June 30, 
1670, Samuel Baker; Lydia died unmarried before 24 
years; Hannah married Thomas Buckland the younger, 
who died May 28, 1676; and she next married Joseph 
Baker, who died Dec. 11, 1691; and she married third 
husband John Loomis; and Abigail married Joshua 
Pomeroy, and next, David Hoyt, and next, Nathaniel 
Royce. 

Peyton Cook, of Saco, 1635, called, gentleman, was 
clerk of the assembly of Lygonia 1648. Folsom, 32. 

Philip Cook, of Cambridge, freeman 1647, died Feb. 
10, 1667, by wife Mary, daughter of Barnabas Lamson, 
had Mary, born July 26, 1652; Philip, Aug. 19, 1654; 
Samuel; Hannah, July 4, 1657; and Sarah; all except 
Philip, who probably died young, baptized at Cambridge; 
also Philip again, baptized May 5, 1661 ; John, Aug. 30, 
1603; and Barnabas, June 4, 1665; as in matchless 
Mitchell's register appears, but it must be, that he had 
two daughters named Hannah, for town record shows 
daughter of Hannah, July 13, 1654, and brother of Sam- 
uel, 1655. Sarah died May 12, 1661. His will of July 

18, before his death disposes of children John, 3 years 
old; Philip, 5; and Hannah, 9; leaving widow Mary, to 
bring up others to trades. A discrepance between Mit- 
chell and the inscription on gravestone of second Philip 
may be observed if Harris, 57, has correctly given it, 
that he died March 25, 1718, aged 55 years, 10 months, 
25 days, so that by such computation he was born April 
30, 1662. Probably the gravestone is false, Mitchell may 
be following and we may suppose he was baptized at 5 
days old. 

Ralph Cook, of Charlestown, 1640, may have had wife 
Sarah, admission of the church Nov. 30, 1643.

Richard Cook, of Charlestown, came in the Jonathan, 
1639, aged 31, joined with the children May 30, 1641, 
lived on Maiden side, had wife Frances, and daughter 
Mary, born May, 1649; was of friends of Marmaduke 
Matthew's preaching, and died Oct. 14, 1658. His will 
names children of his wife by former husband Isaac, 
Thomas, Elizabeth and Sarah, Wheeler; but, I think, 
the sons were born in England. Elizabeth married Sept. 
12, 1659, William Greene; and Sarah married Dec. 18, 
1660, John Greene. His widow married Sept. 5, 1659, 
Thomas Green; and his only daughter Mary, married 
1666, Samuel Green. 

Richard Cook, of Boston, tailor, came, it is said, from 
Gloucestershire, freeman March 4, 1635, artillery com- 
pany 1643, lieutenant, 1656, representative for Dover, 
1670; by wife Elizabeth, had Elhanan, born June 30, 
baptized July 17, 1636, died Nov. following; Elisha, 
before mentioned Sept. 16, baptized Nov. 5, 1637, Har- 
vard College 1657; Elkanah, baptized Sept. 12, 1640, 
but the town record gives a false date of birth; Joseph, 
born 2d, baptized May 8, 1642, who may have been 
Harvard College 1660, or 61; and Benjamin, baptized 
August 4, 1644, about 5 days old, died May following. 
His will, made Dec. 18, 1671, probate Dec. 25, 1673, 
names wife Elizabeth and only (child Elisjha, beside 
brothers William and Walter, in England. His widow 
died Oct. 7, 1690, in 75th year. 

Richard Cook, of Norwich, had grant of lot 1680, 
in the part now Preston, and son Obed, born Feb. 1, 
1681. 

Robert Cook, of Charlestown, freeman June 2, 1641, 
by wife Sarah, had Samuel, born Aug. 10, 1644. I feel 
some hesitation in this case, whether he and Richard 
were not one, for Richard is not in the Colonial record as 
freeman, which would not, however, be very surprising 
though rather observing; but how Robert, whose name 
is not found in the church, was admitted freeman is 
strange. 

Robert Cook, of Portsmouth, R. I., married Dec. 5, 
1678, Tamar, daughter of John Tyler of Bristol, had 
Mary, born June 27, 1682; Miriam, Dec. 9, 1689; and 
Samuel, Dec. 19, 1695. 

Roger Cook, of Marshfield, 1643. 

Samson Cook, of Gloucester, died Jan. 26, 1674. 

Samuel Cook, of Dedham, 1640, called gentleman 
late of Dublin, in Ireland, when his executors conveyed 
his estate, 1652. 

Samuel Cook, of New Haven, m. Hope, May 2, 1667, 
daughter of Edward Parker, had Samuel, born March 3, 
1668; John, Dec. 3, 1669; and a daughter without name; 
removed to Wallingford, 1673, where the residue of his 
children named in his will, twelve in all, were born : Mary 
Ives, Judith, Isaac, Joseph, Hope, Israel, Mabel, Benja- 
min, Ephraim and Elizabeth. A second wife Mary, he 
had, but we know not, which of these children, if any, 
were hers. He made his will March, 1703, and soon 
died. 

Stephen Cook, of Mendon, freeman 1673, perhaps 
brother of Gregory, removed to Watertown, was one of 
founders of the second church, a deacon, and died April 
24, 1714. 

Thomas Cook, of Salem, was dead Sept. 1650, when 
inventory of 40 pound sterling was returned. Perhaps 
he was unmarried.

He was next year banished from Plymouth Colony and

Lawrence Copeland, of Braintree, married Dec. 12, 
1651, Lydia Townsend, sadly perverted to Feb. 16, 1654, 
in Genealogical Register, XII, 110, had Thomas, born

married Nov. 23, 1715, says Thayer, but the name of her 
husband is, I think, an impossible one. Ephraim, his 
son died unmarried of small-pox, on board a ship of his 
fleet, before the sailing of the disastrous expedition of 
Sir William Phips, 1690; he died Dec. 30, 1699, born,

Queen Elizabeth of blessed memory." Farmer, who was 
much indebted to Chief Justice Sewall's fondness for 
instances of unusual longevity, refers to his diary, as 
saying he was 110. Perhaps this is mistaken. In the 
diary iof Marshall, called Fairfield's, by Dr. Harris, when 
he presented it to the Historical Society, I read, under 
date Jan. 1, 1700, (so that it seems he was wise enough 
to be half a century ahead of the law in reckoning the 
beginning of a year), "old Lawrence Copeland buried 
aged 100 years, who died last Saturday." Marshall was 
a townsman, and his authority may be sufficient; but the 
grave-stone also says Dec. 30, 1699, 100 years old. His 
wife Lydia, died Jan. 8, 1688.

Elijah Corlet, son of Henry of London, bred at 
Lincoln College Oxford, where he was matriculated 
Mar. 16, 1627; was schoolmaster from 1641, when New 
England First Fruits, written 1642, takes notice of his 
merit in that service until he died Feb. 24, 1687, aged 76, 
as one account tells, or by another in 78th year. He 
was freeman 1.645; by wife Barbara, daughter probably 
of Wiliam Cutter, had Rebecca, born Aug. 14, 1644; 
Hepzibah; and Ammi Ruhamah, Harvard Colege 1670. 
This son taught the grammar school at Plymouth, 1672, 
and died at Cambridge in office of tutor, Feb. 1, 1679. 
Hepzibah married May 21, 1673, James Minot, and June 
4, 1684; Daniel Champney.

COURSER- — Archelaus, of Lancaster, had estate in 
Boston and, I think, was of Charlestown, 1658, where 
the record has the name Hercules; removed to Lancaster 
1664, or earlier. 

William Courser, of Boston, shoemaker, came in 
the Elizabeth and Ann, 1635, aged 26, joined with the 
church a week after Vane, but was not of his side two 
years later; freeman May 25, 1636, was allowed to be inn- 
holder- had Deliverance, born March 4, 1638; Joanna, 
Feb 9' 1640; and John, baptized May 8, 1642, about four 
days old, but the dates of birth suspiciously concur with 
the church record of baptism and the originality of one 
or the other may well be doubted.

other persons, going in a boat from Hampton, Oct. 20,

93 years," is the addendum in the report, Genealogical 
Register, VII, 117, the latitude of which phrase may 
justify a subtraction, if not of twenty, certainly of ten 
years. Alice, perhaps his daughter, married May 24, 
1662, Matthew Abady; another daughter, married 
Francis Jenness; and his daughter Leah, married Dec. 
13, 1681, James Perkins of the same, and died Feb. 19,

1638, aged 15, married August 29, 1654, Elizabeth 
Roberts, had Matthew, born Sept. 5, 1656; Richard, Sept. 
6, 1G58; John, Sept. 2, 1666; and Samuel, February 19,

with him, it is said, in 1638, aged 13, lived some years at 
Boston, before and after 1650; when he was at Salisbury; 
there, by wife Martha, had Caleb, born August 15, 1666; 
was of Brookfield, 1673, there killed by the Indians, Aug. 
2, 1675. Perhaps be and his brother were brought by 
sister Mary, who married John Lake of Boston.

married a Williams.' She made her will April 28, 1658, 
and died Nov. 28, 1659. He was of artillery company 
1639, freeman May 13, 1640, selectman and representa-

of good estate, an enterprising merchant, went on several 
voyages to distant lands, and was lost on a voyage to 
Malaga, by shipwreck, December 27, 1645, on the coast 
of Spain; by wife Martha, daughter of Captain Rains-

born February 25, 1642, baptized next day; and William, 
February 6; 1643, died in six days. His inventory shows 
Feb. 6, 1643, died in six days. His inventory shows 1266 
pounds sterling, 9 sh., 7 p. His widow married Dec, 
1647, Governor Winthrop, brought him son Joshua, who 
died within 'two years, and married next, March 10, 1651, 
John Coggan, bore him Joshua, Caleb, and Sarah; and 
after his death in 1658, wished to be married again, as 
related by Rev. John Davenport; and, it is said, poisoned 
herself for ill-success. The will of his mother aids our 
research for genealogy. Its date is April 30, 1658, and 
names the four children of William Tyng, who had mar- 
ried her eldest daughter Elizabeth; five of Increase 
Nowell; five of Thomas Graves, who were all the living 
grandchildren; besides the daughters, Sarah Williams, 
to whom she gave land at Woburn ; Parnell Nowell ; and 
Catharine Graves, as also Martha, the widow of Coggan, 
who had before been widow of her son Thomas, and of 
Governor Winthrop.

Hannah, the daughter of Thomas Emmons, had Samuel, 
named in the will of his grandfather Emmons, January 
20, 1661. 

John CSabb, of Dorchester, 1630, came, I presume, in 
the "Mary and John," requested October 19th to be made 
freeman, but probably went home soon, at least never 
took the oath; though Dr. Harris, who finds him in town 
records, 1632, says he removed to Connecticut. As this 
could not be before 1635, it is liable to doubt. 

Richard Crabb, of Wethersfield, was representative 
1639, '40 and '41; sold estate 1643, and removed probably 
to Stamford, and in 1655, was of Greenwich. See Hin- 
man, 127; Savage's Gen. Diet., vol. I, 468.

Alice, had John, born October 25, 1639; and Deliverance,

in 1656, and his widow married February 11, 1657, 
Joshua Hewes. Savage's Gen. Diet., vol. I, 468. 

CRACKBONE: — Gilbert, of Dorchester, freeman, 
December, 1636, removed soon to Cambridge, had, per- 
haps, the four, whose death is on record. Mary, May 30, 
Judith, July 7, both of 1655; Hannah September 24, 1658; 
and Benjamin, April 27, 1661; yet we know not who was 
mother of either. But as he married June 17, 1656,, 
Elizabeth Cooledge, it is clear the first two were by 
former wife; and of the last named we may doubt for 
two reasons, that in his register, Matchless says: "his 
son Benjamin was about five or six years old, when his 
father joined here," though he leaves it uncertain how 
old he was when that was written, still we might infer, 



that he was continued in life. Next, we know that one 
Benjamin Crackbone was killed by the Indians, Sept. 
4, 1675, at Northfield, under Captain Beers, and probably 
was that man's son. He died January 9, 1672. His will, 
of December 20, with codicil of January 2, preceding, 
names son Benjamin and his children Joseph and Sarah. 
His widow was Elizabeth. Savage's Gen. Diet., vol. I,

CRAFORD or CRAFFORD. 

CRAFORD:— -John, of Dover, 1671. 
Mordecai Craford, of Salem, in 1663, had wife 
Judith. 

Mungo Craford, of Boston, 1686, a Scotchman, had 
been some years here apprentice, or a servant of John 
Smith, the mason, and this year was allowed to be an 
inhabitant. By wife Mary, he had Elizabeth, born May 
19, 1681, whlo died young; was, I believe, among the ad- 
herents of Andros, imprisoned April, 1689, but did not 
go home, and is among the taxed 1695; by second wife 
Susannah, had only child Mary, who married Stephen 
Paine, and died 1712. The inventory of 109 pounds 
sterl. 9 sh. 10 p. had drugs and medicines for two-fifths. 
His widow Susannah made her will August 27, 1713, 
probated September 15, afterwards making daughter 
Mary and her husband Stephen executor, giving all to 
Mary, except 20 pound sterl. to each of the grandchildren. 
An early settler, Mr. Craford, probably of Watertown, 
had been drowned. See Winthrop 1, 138, and Lieutenant 
Feake, and three other gentlemen of that town, by order 
of October 6, 1684, were to be taken inventory 
of his estate for the Court.

12, 1637; and Moses, April 28, 1641; was lieutenant, 
selectman, representative 1663-7, artillery company, 1668, 
and died 1690, leaving widow Dorcus, his third or fourth 
wife, who died December 30, 1697; but he had former

William Robinson of Dorchester, being her fourth hus-

he names Abigail, who had first married January 24, 1651, 
John Ruggles, as wife, of Edward Adams; Hannah, as 
wife of Nathaniel Wilson; and grandchild Ephraim, son 
of John. Apostle Eliot, spells his name "Crofts;" in

ingworth, but went back to Guilford before marriage of 
third wife Frances, was living there 1685 ; and died Jan. 
31, 1690, leaving good estate. He is the man called b>* 
Kellond and Kirk (to whom Governor Endicott had 
issued warrant for arrest of Whalley and Goffe, the 
regicides,) Dennis Scranton, when they made report of 
their unsuccessful errand. Of this document not ex- 
ceeded in curious detail by any in New England history, 
see Hutchinson Collection, 334. Elizabeth married 1686, 
John Lee, of Westfield, as his second wife, and Sarah 
married John Evarts, as his second wife. 

John Crampton, of Norwalk, 1672, was a soldier in 
Philip's War, had lived 1661, at Fairfield, there married 
Hannah, daughter of Francis Andrews, and by her had 
Hannah, born 1662, who married March 5, 1680, Benja- 
min Scribner, or Scrivener; and for second wife married 
October 8, 1676, Sarah, daughter of John Rockwell, of 
Stamford, had Sarah, born September 10, 1679; Abigail,

Boston for a Baptist, freeman at Newport, 1655, removed 
to Westerly, preached as 7th day Baptist and died 1676. 
He had two daughters, of whom one married Job Bab- 
cock; and other, Josiah Witter. Other children were 
John, Jeremiah, Peter, Joseph and Eber.

"William and John." 

James Cornish, of Saybrook, 1662, school-master, at 
Northampton, 1664, where his wife died Dec. 28, of that 
year, removed to Westfield, freeman 1669; in 1678 was

In an account of town debts Stiles' Ancient Windsor, 
February, 1660-'61, occurs an item of 4 pounds sterling, 
10 shillings, to Mr. Comniish, for schooling. This was 
probably James Cornish, whom we find mentioned at 
different times and places along the river as a school- 
master. He was for some time a resident of Windsor. 

Richard Cornish, of Mass., 1634, surety for his 
wife's behavior (Hutch. I, 436,) may be the same which 
Winthrop II, 210, tells of, as removed from Weymouth, 
to York, there murdered, 1644. 

Samuel Cornish, of Salem, 1637, had daughter Re- 
member, baptized May 3, 1640; and Samuel, March 14, 
1641. Possibly in Felt, I, 174, or Colonial Records or 
Church Records of baptism, Corning and Cornish may 
be confused. 

Thomas Cornish, of Gloucester, married Sept. 4, 1641, 
Mary, daughter of John Stone, had John, born Sept. 1,

CORY, COREE,-COUREE or COREY. 

CORY:— Abraham, of Southold, L. I., 1662, was made 
freeman of Connecticut that year, married Margaret, 
daughter of Jeffry Christophers, and Margaret, who mar- 
ried Wllloughlby Lynde of Saybrook. 

Giles Cory, of Salem, 1649, had daughter Deliver- 
ance, born August 5, 1658, by wife Margaret; and mar- 
ried second wife April 11, 1664, Mary Britz, who died 
August 27, 1684, aged 63. He had third wife Martha, 
who was admitted to the church at the village now 
Danvers, April 27, 1690, imprisoned in March, 1692, con- 
victed and hanged for witchcraft on the Thursday follow- 
ing the suffering of her husband. At the age of almost 
77, he was the victim of that execrable fanaticism of 
1692. When the preposterous indictment was read, he 
stood mute, though he had before said he was not guilty ; 
and was, by force of sentence, under the cruel old com- 
mon law, pressed to death, Felt says, "On Sept. 19, (other 
accounts 16th, which must be wrong,) being the only 
person who ever endured that barbarous process in 
Massachusetts. On July 25th, he confirmed the will 
made in prison April 24th, preceding, giving estate to 
his son-in-law William Cleves, of Beverly, and John 
Moulton, of Salem. He was a member of the first 
church by which of course he was excommunicated, Sept. 
18, the day before his dreadful fate; and so long did the 
infernal delusion last, that this sentence was erased by 
vote only at the end of 20 years though in case of his 
wife's membership of another church the malignity lasted 
but eleven years." Felt II, 475-85. Hutch. II, 59. 
Calef, More Wonders of Invisible World, 217, 18. The 
late Hon. Daniel P. King, of Danvers, occupied the 
homestead of poor Cory. In Essex Hist. Coll., I, 56, 
is petition of his daughter Elizabeth for self and other 
children. His daughter Martha married Cleves. 

John and Thomas Cory, were of Chelmsford, 1691; 
but I know no more of either. 

William Cory, of Portsmouth, R. I., had Michael, 
born April 21, 1688; and no more is heard of him.

August 22, 1685; Isaac, June 2, 1688; Jacob and Joseph, 
twins, August 13, 1692, and Mary, May 10, 1695. Morse 
thinks him son of Iasac, of Rowley, and that he had 
served in the war against Philip. Though the two points 
are not utterly inconsistent I look on their concurrence 
as improbable. 

Edmund Cosin, of Boston, lived at Pulling Point, 
married 1656 or '57, Margaret Bird, servant to John 
Grover, of Rumney Marsh. 

Francis Cosin, was of artillery company 1640. 

George Cosin, whose name is Coussens in the custom 
house records, came in the "James," from Southampton 
to Boston, arrived June 3, 1635. 

Isaac Cosin, of Rowley, about 1650, was from Marl- 
borough, in Wiltshire, went to New London, where he 
had a grant of lot, 1651, but did not take it, and went 
back to Rowley; had wife Ann, in 1658, on the Boston 
records of marriage (when the date is omitted though we 
may be sure it was 1657,) called Hunt, formerly wife of 
John Edwards; but on the same record appears, that by 
former wife Elizabeth, who died Dec. 14, 1656, he had 
Sarah, born August 31, preceding. 

John Cosin, of Casoo, in that part now North Yar- 
mouth, 1645, born about 1596, died at York, 1689.

COTTON. 

COTTON: — John, of Boston, the most distinguished 
divine that came from England in the first age, born at 
Derby, December 4, 1585, son of Rowland Cotton, Esq., 
was entered at the University of Cambridge, when 14 
years old, bred at Trinity College, where he took his A. 
M., 160.6, became fellow of Emanuel, after spending, as 
he says, fourteen years at Cambridge, preached at 
Boston, Lincolnshire, twenty-one years, from 1612, being 
by the choice of the corporation made vicar; came with 
several of his parish in the "Griffin," arrived Sept. 4, 
1633, with wife Sarah and their first child named at bap- 
tism Seaborn, (from the circumstance of his birth,) re- 
ceived at the church on Sunday following, Sept. 8; on 
October 10, was ordained teacher of that church, freeman 
May 4, 1634, died Dec. 23, 1652, yet the old copy of town 
records of which, I presume, no original has been known 
for 150 years, 'has it 15. His daughter ensuing on taking 
cold in crossing the ferry as he went to preach a few days 
before at Cambridge. His will of Nov. 30, of that year 
with codicil of Dec. 12, mentioned the four children, 
Seaborn, John, Elizabeth and Mary, with wife Sarah, and 
"house and garden in the market-place of Boston, in 
Lincolnshire," as well as the "small part of my house, 
which Sir Henry Vane built, whilst he sojourned with 
me," and at his departure, gave by deed, to son Seaborn; 
and also mentioned cousin Henry Smith, and cousin John 
Angier, with his wife and children all living at his house 
and kinswoman Martha Mellowes, who I judge to be 
widow of Abraham. But the name of grandchild Betty 
Day, in the codicil can only be explained by supposing 
that his wife had by former husband a daughter who had 
married a Day and had this child. We know she was not 
grandchild in natural descent. He lived 18 years with 
wife Elizabeth Hoitirocks, add had no children; by second 
wife, widow Sarah Story, who outlived him, and married 
August 26, 1656, Richard Mather, outlined him, and died 
May 27, 1676, had the son before mentioned born on the 
ocean, August 12, 1633, baptized 4 days after he reached 
port; Sarah, born Sept. 12, baptized Sept. 20, 1635, be- 
thirothed to Jonathan Mitchell, but died of small-pox, 
Jan. 20, 1650; Elizabeth 9, baptized Dec. 10, 1637; John, 
March 15, baptized March 22, 1640, Harvard College, 
1657; Mary or Maria, February 16, baptized February 20, 
1642; and Rowland, about 6 days old, baptized Dec. 24, 
1643, died of small-pox, Jan. 29, 1650. Elizabeth mar- 
ried Oct. 12, 165, Jeremiah Eggington, died Aug. 31, 
following, having Elizabeth born Aug. 15, who died soon; 
Maria married M#rch 6 1663, Rev. Increase Mather, and 
died April 4, 1714. Twenty-one of his descendants in 
the male line (beside the many thro male or female of the 
Mather blood, and many grand-daughters and other 
females,) had been in 1818, graduates at Harvard, of 
whom two tihirds were clergymen. 

Thomas Cotton, of Roxbury, had Thomas, born 
April 21/ 1664, may be he who died at Chelmsford, Sept. 
30, 1687. ' 

William Cotton, of Boston, a butcher, may have 
been before joining our church in May, 1647, first at 
Gloucester, for one William, either this or the next, owned

ter, married March 7, 1660, John Matson.

12, 1656, Elinor Breck, probably daughter of Edward, of 
Dorchester, removed to Wethersfield, freeman of Con- 
necticut, 1658, died May 31, 1691, leaving Benjamin, 
Jonathan, Joseph, John, Abraham, Jacob, Israel, Eliza- 
beth and Mary. Perhaps he lived some years late in 
life at Taunton, for his son John there took his wife, 
and (which is better ground for the inference), there 
Samuel Hackett married,, March 28, 1690, his daughter 
Mary. 

Christian Crane, of Cambridge, 1647. But I doubt, 
that Farmer was deluded into deriving this name from 
Christopher Cane, which see. 

Henry Crane, of Dorchester, 1658, in Milton, 1667- 
77, married a daughter of Stephen Kingsley. 

Henry Crane, of Guilford, 1664, was, perhaps father 
of that Mercy, whio married October 30," 1701, John 
Hbadley, the second.

nah, who married Thomas Huntington, Deliverance,

Branford, in 1668, had been representative of New Hamp- 
shire 1650, an assistant of New Haven Colony ten years 
before, and of the United Colony of Connecticut, three 
years. 

John Crane, a youth, came to Boston in the Speed- 
well, 1656, aged 11, from London, of whom I hear no 
more. 

John Crane, of Braintree or Dorchester, married Dec. 
13, 1686, Hannah, daughter of the second James Leonard, 
and no more is known. 

Jonathan Crane, of Norwich, 1680, married Dec. 19, 
1678, Deborah, eldest daughter of Francis Griswold, had 
Sarah, Jonathan, John and Mary. Perhaps he had been 
first of Killingworth. 

Nathaniel Crane, of Newton, by wife Mary, had 
Thomas, born February 27, 1687. 

William Crane, a soldier in Philip's War, from some 
eastern part of the colony, was at Northampton, April,

ably November, 1681.

1647; Eleazer, 1650, and Joseph, 1654; removed probably 
to Barnstable. (Deane.) But one of necessity distrusts the 
names and dates of all the children except the first, be- 
cause they so wonderfully concurwith those of his brother 
William's children, and in his will of Feb. 10, 1669, 1 find 
good reason, for he gives to his wife Joan, and to six 
children of his brother William, viz : John, Job, Samuel, 
Josiah, Elisha and Joseph ; made Job executor, and names 
no children of his own.

Sieuir de La Tour, and Col. Thomas Temple. He was 
to have, in division of this grand province of Acadia, all 
West of Machias for 30 leagues, including Penobscot, 
and up Machias river 130 leagues on its West bank; was 
freeman 1660, and had more productive, though nar- 
rower, estate by grant of the Colony 500 acres near 
Sudbury, in 1662, and by purchase of 1674, at Mendham, 
See valuable paper in Genealogical Register, VI, 46, 
about his serving as friend of New England. But I do 
not concur with the writer in claiming his son John, 
the poet, "as an American by birth," who in my opinion, 
preceded 'the first coming of his father hither.

CUDWORTH:— James Cudwoirth, of Scituate, 1634, 
by Deane, is supposed to have come in the Charles, with 
Hatherly, 1632, a very valuable man, joined the church 
January IS, 1G35, with his wife who bore him James, 
baptized May 3, 1635, under his own roof, probably the 
place where the congregation then worshiped; Mary, 
July 23, 1637; Jonathan, September 16, 1638, died in a 
few days; Israel, April 18, 1641; Joanna, March 26, 1643; 
beside a son buried very young, June 24, 1644; and 
cithers, certainly Hannah, and another Jonathan, of whom 
we find not the baptism; .representative 1649-56, and 
again in 1659, When for his tenderness to the Quakers, 
he was' rejected; an Assistant 1656-8, captain of the 
militia and in the early part of Philip's war commander 
of the Whole force of Plymouth Colony, in 1681 deputy- 
governor, died 16S2. He was in London, as Colonial 
agent, where he died oi small-pox soon after his arrival, 
and he had served as Commissioner of the United 
Colonies, in 1657. Baylies I, 280; IV, 13-15. Mary 
married 1660, Robert Whitcomb, of Scituate. He had 
taken wife in England, a 'daughter of Rev. Dr. Stough- 
ton, as is inferred from a letter in Genealogical Register, 
XIV, 101, and removed with Lothrop to Barnstable, but 
after few years went back to Scituate. In bis will, early 
in 1682, he gives to James, Israel, Jonathan and daugh- 
ters Hannah, Jones and four children of daughter Mary 
Whitcomb.

CULLICK:— John Cullick, of Hartford, 1639, a 
captain, representative, 1644, '46 and '47, Assistant and 
Secretary 1648, and several years afterwards, married 
May 20, 1648, Elizabeth, sister not daughter (as I had 
said in note upon Winthrop's History, I, 228, of Edition 
1853, having been misled by some Connecticut author,) 
of George Fenwick, Esq., of Saybrook, probably as 2d 
wife, had John, born May 4, 1649, Harvard College, 
1668; and Elizabeth, July 15, 1652; removed to Boston, 
where he was received into the church November 27, 
1659, with his. wife and two elder children John and 
Mary. I suppose it was an elder daughter Hannah, 
who married May 20, 1660, Pelitiah Glover. He was 
from Felstead, Essex, served as Commissioner of the 
United Colonies for Connecticut, and died at Boston, 
January 23, 1663. His widow married Richard Ely, 
and much contention followed about the estate. His 
daughter Elizabeth married October, 1671, Benjamin 
Batten, of Boston.

died September 12, 1690. Elizabeth, probably his wife, 
died November 13, 1689. 

Isaac Cummings, of Ipswich, freeman May 18, 1642, 
may have been at Watertown, before and after, at Tops- 
field, for in 1661, Isaac senior, a deacon and Isaac 
junior, (who by wife Mary had a son, born November 
3, in that year, and was living in 1686,) were there. In 
his will of 1676, he names son Isaac, son-in-law John 
Jewett, husband of Elizabeth, and John Pease, husband 
of Ann. 



Richard Cummings, of Isle of Shoals, joined with 
Thomas Turpin in purchase of all estate of Francis 
Williams, of Portsmouth, in December, 1645, and in short 
time removed to Massachusetts, freeman 1669, but went 
back, I presume, to Maine, and died at Scarborough, 
1676, where his property was not small. 

William Cummings, of Salem, 1637, probably the 
supporter of Wheelwright, disarmed that year. Ann,' 
possibly his daughter, married October 8, 1669, at Salem, 
John Pease. Seven of this name, with its various spel- 
ling, bad been graduated at Harvard, in 1820, and 
eleven at other New England colleges.

Rev. George Burrows, suffering by the .same horrid 
delusion. Yet her punishment was, to some extent, less 
than his, .as the greater culprit met the malediction of 
Gorton Mather, the church inquisitor.

joined our church August 4 preceding, called "servant 
to our teacher Mr. John Cotton." He had grant of lot 



for two heads, December 30, 1640, when, probably, he 

was recently married at Muddy river. 

Henry Curtis, of Wa*ertown, 1636, an original 
proprietor of Sudbury, married Mary, daughter of Nich- 
olas Guy, had Ephraim, born March 31, 1642; John,

died November 30, 1661', leaving widow Elizabeth, (who 
married June 22, 1002, Riahard Weller, from Windsor,) 
and these sons, of which Samuel died September 11, 1680. 

Henry Curtis, of Boston, by wife Jane, had John, 
born July 2, 1657. 

Henry Curtis, of Marblehaad, perhaps went to Pema- 
quid, before 1674, where be and Henry Jr., in that year 
took the oath of fidelity. 

John Curtis, of Dover, admitted an inhabitant April 
24, 1656, but, perhaps, as no more is heard of him there, 
he -removed to Roxbury. 

John Curtis, of Stratford, 1650-85. Trumbull, I, 
105, says he came from Roxbury, and he had John, 
born October, 1642. But all of it seems erroneous. He 
was really son of widow Curtis ; bald, says the preposter- 
ous tradition, daughter Elizabeth, old enough to -marry 
John, the eldest son of Governor Thomas Welles, bear- 
ing to him several children, and, next, married March 19, 
1663, John Wilooxson. Almost every word of Trum- 
bull, and of Gothren, borrowed from Trumbull, in rela- 
tion to 'the Roxbury derivation of John,anid William, 
is wrong; and must have been a tradition of the middle 
of the eighteenth century. Yet a true John of Stratford, 
by wife Elizabeth, who died as Cathren, tells, 1682, be- 
side that John, of 1642, had Israel, April, 1644; Eliza-' 
beth, May, 1647, (who by tradition became wife of John 
Welles, .eldest son of the Governor, bore him one son in 
1648, the year after her own birth, anld twins 1651); 
Thomas, January, 1649; Joseph, November, 1650; Ben- 
jamin, September, 1652; and Hannah, February, 1654 
or 5. None of this must be rejected but perhaps when 
Cotibren adds, that he died December 6, 1707, aged 96 
years, and that his widow Margaret, died 1714, acquies- 
cence of our judgment may not be so easy. 

John Curtis, of Topsfield, married December 4, 1672, 
Sarah Locke, freeman 1690. 

Nathaniel Curtis, of Northampton, 1668, was a 
soldier, killed September 2, 1675, at Nortbfield, by the 
Indians, but who was his father is not known. 

Richard Curtis, of Dorchester, 1642, freeman 1647, 
by wife Elizabeth, bad Elizabeth, born July 17, 1643. 
His wife died May 28, 1657; and he married September 
25 following, Sarah had Isaac, June 17, 1658; and 
Joseph, September 4, 1661. 

Richard Curtis, of Salem, there had, by wife Sarah, 
Caleb, born September 24, 1646; and Sarah, March 19, 
1650; both baptized April 21, 1650; Samuel, April 1, 
baptized May 18, 1651; Richard, February 14, baptized 
20, February 1653; Sarah, again, baptized April 15, 
1055; Hannah, born September 16, 1656, baptized Jan. 
25 following; John, born February 2, 1659, died soon; 
John again, born June 4, 1660, died soon; and Mary, 
born February 11, 1663. 

Richard Curtis, of Boston, 1657, had wife Sarah, 
probably widow of John Strange.

Richard Curtis, Marblebead, 1648, removed to Scit- 
uaite, married 1649,Ann, daughter of John Hallet, had 
Ann, born 1649; Elizabeth, 1651; John, December 1, 
1653; Mary, 1655; Martha, 1657; Thomas, March 18, 
1659; Deborah, 1661; and Sarah, 1663; and he died 1693. 
His will of 1692 provides for second wife Lydia, the two 
sons, and daughters Ann, Elizabeth Brooks, wife of 
Nathaniel; Mary Badcocke; and Martha Clark, wife of 
Thomas. So it is inferred that the youngest two daugh- 
ters died before their father. 

Richard Curtis, of Wallingford, had three sons and 
a daughter who married, Nathaniel Howe, but of the 
four, only Isaac is named. The father died September 
17, 1681. 

Samuel Curtis, of Northampton, 1668. 

Theophilus Curtis, of Woburn, freeman 1684. 

Thomas Curtis, of WetihersfreM, an early settler, had 
John, born 1639; James, 1641; Joseph, 1644; Samuel, 
1646; Isaac, 1647; Elizabeth and Ruth, lall living Novem- 
ber 13, 1681, at his daughters in Wallingford, whither 
he removed 1670. Elizabeth married May 26, 1674, John 
Stoddard; Ruth, married Eleazur Kimberlv, the Secre- 
tary of the Colony. 

Thomas Curtis, of York, removed to Scituate, there 
had Elizabeth, baptized 1649; and Samuel, 1659, went 
back to York, 1663; had Benjamin, 1684. With some 
of Courteous, he is seen swearing allegiance to Massa- 
chusetts, 1652, in Colonial Records, IV, pt. I, 129. 

William Curtis, of Roxbury, 1632, came in "Lion," 
arrived at Boston, September 16, with wife Sarah, and 
children Thomas, Mary, John and Philip, freeman March 
4, 1633, first named in the list of that day ; had here, says 
Ellis, Hannah, Elizabeth and Isaac, born July 22, 1641. 
His eldest son William, who came in 1631, perhaps with 
Eliot in the "Lion," was a hopeful scholar, but God 
took him in 1634," says the church record. Thomas, 
died June 26, 1650, of "long and tedious consumption," 
says "the church record, unmarried, it is presumed. His 
daughter Hannah married Aug. 25, 1651, William Geary, 
and Elizabeth married, December 14, 1659, John Newell. 
He died December 8, 1672, aged 80; and his widow 
died March 20 or 26 following, aged 73. 

William Curtis, of Stratford, 1642-1702, son of a 
widow Curtis, that came, so I presume, from England, 
with John and this son, by Trumbull, I, 105 said to 
have come from Roxbury, erroneous, as must be thought 
for his observance on John. But Cothren shows that 
he, of Stratford (who may never have seen Roxbury), 
was one of the grantees of Woodbury, in 1672, though 
he removed not from Stratford, but died there Decem- 
ber 21, 1702, in his will of six days preceding named his 
children Sarah, who was born October, 1642; Jonathan, 
February, 1644; Joshua, October, 1646; Abigail, April, 
1650; Daniel, November, 1652; Elizabeth, February, 
1654; Ebenezer, July, 1657; Zechariah, November, 1659; 
and josiah, August, 1662. Who was his father is un- 
certain. His second wife was Sarah, widow of William 
Goodrich, but all the children were by first wife, whose 
name is not seen. Both husband and wife died 1702, as 
is said. 

William Curtis, of Scituate, 1643, brother of Richard, 
had Joseph, born 1664; Benjamin, 1666; William, 1668; 
John, 1670'; Miriam, 1673; Mehitabe, 1675; Stephen, 
1677; Sarah, 1679; and Samuel, 1681 



born August 30, .16.18; Sarah, October 13, 1060, died 
soon; William, December 26, 1662; Abigail, about Aug. 
15, 1664; John, May 14, 1666; Elizabeth, January, 1668; 
and Hannah, August, 1670; was one of the troop in 
1078. 

Zaacheus Curtis, of Salem, came in the "James" 
from Southampton, 1635, was from DowWton, in Wilt- 
shire, had grant of land 1646, but probably removed to 
Gloucester, there by wife Joan had Mary, born May 12, 
1659, who- married April 19, 1677, at Salem, Richard 
Friend. Of this name, ten had been graduated at 
Harvard, in 1834, and 19 in other New England colleges.

CURWIN or CORWIN:— George Curwin, of Salem, 
1638, cajne with wife Elizabeth, who had beien widow of 
John White, and daughter Abigail from Workington, in 
Cumberland, where he was born December 10," 1610, 
had John, born July 25 or 28, 1638; Jonathan, November

baptized January, 107:1; and George, born 1G74, died 
soon; was freeman 16G5, representative 1GG6, 7, St, 70, 
2, 4 and 0; a selectman; captain in Philip's war, and died 
January 3 or G, 1085, leaving large estate. Abigail mar- 
ried August 28, 1663, Fleazur Hai'hoi ne, and, next, Hon. 
James Russell; Hannah married, December 29, 1GG4, 
William Browne, and died November 21, 1692; Pene- 
lope married Josiah Woloott; and Susanna married 
Edward Lyde, of Boston, and died early. More light 
is wanted as to Abigail's second husband than the Gene- 
alogical Register affords, as also for the marriage of 
Samuel Andrews to another child of Curwin's wife. 

Matthias Curwin, of South-old, Long Island, had 
been -early at Ipswich, it is said. 

Samuel Curwin, of Boston, died November 16, 1698. 
Often this name is written Oorwin, sometimes Currin, 
to conform to sound. . The Curwens were a very ancient 
family in Cumberland, and the name being nearly, or 
quite, extinct, it was assumed two or three generations 
since by Mr. Christian of the Isle of Man, who was a 
member of Parliament of some distinction, 60 years ago.

CUSHING:— David Cushing, of Exeter, 1655. 

Matthew Cushing, o-f Hingham, 1638, from Hing- 
bam, in County Norfolk, son of Peter, born in 1588, the 
year of the Spanish Armada, married, August 5, 1613, 
Nazareth Pitcher, had, as by register of old Hingham 
appears, Daniel, baptized April 20, 1G19 ; Jeremiah, Jan. 

I, 1621; Matthew, April 5, 1623; Deborah, February 17, 
1G25; and John, whose baptism is, I believe, omitted, 
and I have heard that it was in a neighboring parish; 
came -in the "Diligent," embarked at Gravesend, April 26, 
and landed at Boston, August 10, 16:5s, with that wife 
and those children. He is the ancestor of all the myriads 
of this name in New England, and thence indefinitely 
spread; and died December 30, 1660. His widow died 
1681, aged 95, as is said. -Her sister, widow Frances 
Ricroft, came in the sarnie voyage, but died in a few 
weeks after arrival. In bis will all the children, except 
Deborah, who married, May, 1648,' Matthew Briggs, are 
named as living; and the share to this son-in-law was 
large. 

Theophilus Cushing, of Hingham, came in the 
"Griffin," 1G33, with Gov. Haynes, at whose farm he 
lived some years. He was from old Hingham, and died 
March, 1679, aged about 100 years, of which he was blind 
for 25, had, it is thought, no children.

CUSHMAN: — James Cushman, of Scituate, from 1639 
to '48, says Deane. His will, April 25, 1648, probated 
Ma)- 24 following, names only cousins. It is not easy 
to offer a reasonable conjecture what he was. 

Robert Cushman, of Plymcu:h, one of the most active 
promoters of the migration from Holland in 1620 of the 
pilgrims in the "Mayflower,'' of which he was one, but 
when adverse circumstances compelled that ship to put 
back, he gave up his place for the good of other compan- 
ions in the "Speedwell," which was abandoned 1 ; came ' 
next year in the "Fortune," arrived November 10, the 
first ship after the "Mayflower," with son Thomas, yet 
stayed only one month, went home in the same little 
bark, and came again no more. He had married, at 
Leyden, June 3, 1617, Mary Singleton (on the Dutch 
records spelled Chingelton), of Sandwich, he being de- 
signated a woolcarder at Canterbury, both in County 
Kent. The first -sermon preached in New England, was 
by him, on the highly appropriate subject of self- 
denial. He was constant in serving at London for the 
emigrants and in December 1624 spoke of his hope of 
coming in the next season; but Governor Bradford notes, 
that he was dead before receipt of his answer from Ply- 
mouth of June 1625; and his family came soon after to 
partake in the fortunes of the plantation. By general 
consent, he was assigned a share in the division of land 
with the comers of the "Mayflower." Davis, in Morton's 
Memorial, 128; Young's Chronicles of the Pilgrims, 99, 
249. Twelve of this name had been graduatetd at the 
New England colleges in 1834.

Priest (that died at Plymouth January 1, 1621), an;d 
married November 21 following, at Leyden; and son 
Samuel are all ; but we may suppose, that some daughters 
had been married in the interval, and at this division 
?.re counted by other names. Sarah, his daughter, married 
1C30, John Coombs, it is said, and another married 
Phineas Pratt. He was a Dutchman, united with the 
fathers at Leyden, and Winslow and gives his name, as,

perhaps, in earlier life, the man wrote it, Godbert God- 
bertson. He died before -October 23, 16'33, the date of 
inventory of both himself and -wife, so that she was pro- 
bably dead a short time before. By descendants the last 
syllable of the surname is now rejected. Davis, in 
Morton, 379. Savage's Gen. Diet. vol. I, 491. 

CUTLER : — James Cutler, of Watertown, by wife Ann, 
had James, born November 6, 1635; Hannah, July 26, 
163S; Elizabeth, January 28, 1640, died soon; and Mary, 
March 29, 1643. His wife died September in the follow- 
of Thomas King, had Elizabeth, July 29, 1646; Thomas', 
ing year, and he married March 9, 1645, Mary, widow 
about 1648; Sarah, Joanna, Jemima/ John, March 19, 
and perhaps one or more of the latest were by third wife 
Phebe, 1663; Samuel, November 18, 1664; Phebe, daugh- 
ter of John Page. He had removed 1648, to an outlying 
plantation, called Cambridge Farms, now Lexington, 
and there his will of November 24, 1684, calling himself 
78 years old, was made, and yet not probated before 
August 20, 1694. Ann married, probably, John Goller; 
Elizabeth married John Parm enter, of Sudbury; Sarah 
married Thomas White; and Joanna, married Philip 
Russell. 

John Cutler, of Hingham, came in 1637, with wife, 
.seven children and one servant, from some part of Nor- 
folk, Eng., and died, I suppose, about 1671, for next year 
his widow Mary, then became Hewet, joined with son 
Nathaniel, of Reading, Samuel, of Topsfield and Thomas, 
of Charlestown, in sale of the estate at Hinghani. 

John Cutler, of Woburn, married September 3, 1650, 
Olive Thompson, had Mary, born August 7, 1651, died 
young; Susanna, March 22, 1653; and Mary, again, May 
5, 1663. He died of small-pox, 1678 or 9. Mary mar- 
ried June 20, 1684, another record says March 2, 1084, 
Matthew Smith. 

John Cutler, of Woburn, perhaps, married May 12, 
1682, Susanna Baker, probably daughter of John, but 
may have removed after having John, born December 7, 
1684, died soon. 

John Cutler, of Hingham, a surgeon, who changed 
his name from John Demesmaker, married January 4, 
1675, Mary, daughter of Edward Cowell, had John, born 
August 6, 1676; Peter, July 7, 1679; Mary, July 24, 1682; 
Hannah, June, 1685; Abigail, November 1, 1687, died 
in few months; David, November 1, 1689; Ruth, Febru- 
ary 22, 1692; Elizabeth, September 7, 1695; and Abigail, 
again, May 30, 1699, the last two at Boston, to which 
he removed for permanent residence, and here died 1717. 
His widow bad administration of his good estate Novem- 
ber 30, of that year. His elder son John, followed the 
father's profession, married August 21, 1716, Joanna, 
widow of Thomas Richards, whose maiden name was 
Dodd, but had no issue. 

Robert Cutler, of Charlestown, 1037, freeman May 
2, 1638, deacon 1659, died March 7, 1665, leaving 
widow Rebecca and children John, Rebecca, married 
L649, Abraham Errington; Hannah, married August 29, 
1654, Matthew Griffin; and Nathaniel, baptized Novem- 
ber 8, 1640, Harvard College, 1663. He had good estate 
by his will, made May 1, preceding his death, distribut- 
ing to wife, four children and to grand-children, beside 
bequething to officers of the church. 

Samuel Cutler, of Marbleheacl, 1654, was 71 years 
old in 1700. 

Samuel Cutler, of Charlestown, by wife Dorothy 



had Samuel, baptized December 9, 1683, born May 4, 
same year; Abraham, born July 6, 1685, baptized in 
Boston, at Old South Church, January 3 following. His 
wife was daughter iof Abraham Bell, and they were mar- 
ried June 30, 1681. After his death she married Dec. 
3, 1698, Josiah Treadway.

CUTTER:— Richard Cutter, of Cambridge, freeman 
June 2, 1641, artillery company 1643, "by his first wife 
Elizabeth, had Elizabeth, born July 15, 1645, died at 18 
years; Samuel, January 3, 1647; Thomas, July 19, 1648 
died soon; William, February 22, 1650; Ephraim, Ger- 
shoin and Mary; all, says Mitchell, born and baptized in 
thus church, except Thomas. His wife died March 5, 
1662, not 1663, as Harris Epitaphs, I., has it, aged 
about 42, and he married February 14, 1663, Harris, 23 
(which was before the death of Elizabeth, as by him 
given), Frances, widow of Isaac Amsden, had Nathaniel, 
December 11, 1663, baptized January 24, 1664; Rebecca'

widow, outlived him; and his daughter Mary married 
Nathaniel Sanger; Rebecca married December 19, 1688, 
Thomas Fillebrown; Elizabeth married a Hall; and' Sarah

18, 1637, artillery company 1638, brother of the preced- 
ing, was living some years later; had grant 1648, of land 
in Cambridge, and in short time afterward went home, 
and sent power of attorney in 1653, to his brother Corlet^ 
from Newycastle on Tyne. Elizabeth, I think, his 
mother, who died January 10, 1664, in her will of Feb- 
ruray 16 preceding, called herself about 87 vears, says she 
has lived now about 20 years with Mr. Elijah Corlet, 
who married her daughter Barbara, and gives them all 
her little property, making the daughter executrix.

CUTTING:— John Cutting, of Watertown, 1636, 
afterward at Charlestown, thence removed, was about 
1642, at Newbury, had Sarah, married James Brown, and 
Mary, married November 9, 1657, Samuel Moody. He 
made many voyages, and brought very many passengers 
from England, and died November 20, 1650. His widow, 
Mary, married John Miller, and died March 6, 1664. 

John Cutting, of Boston, 1655. 

Richard Cutting, of Watertown, came in the "Eliza- 
beth," from Ipswich, 1634, a youth of 11 years, under 
the care of Henry Kimball; by wife Sarah, who died 
November 4, 1685, aged 60, had James, horn January 26, 
1648; John, Susanna; Sairah, September 2, 1661; and 
Lydia, September 1, 1666, beside Zechariah, who may 
have been the eVlest. He made his will June 24, 1694, 
in Which he mentioned the four children alive, and child 
of John, named John, and child of Sarah, named Eliza- 
beth. Susanna married June 2, 1672, Peter Newcombe, 
of Braintree; Sarah married! March 5, 1683, John Bar- 
nard, Jr., and died May 6, 1694; and Lydia married Henry 
Spring. 

William Cutting, a passenger in the "Elizabeth," 
from Ipswich, 1634, aged 26. It may be asked if he were 
related to Richard Young, who came in the same ship 
with him, or of John, -who was master of the Francis, 
which sailed on the same day from the same port, and 
both reached Boston the same day, without loss of any 
passengers. Yet where the answer will come from, or 
what it will be, is beyond conjecture.

CUTT: — (or Cutts in modern days) John Cutt, of 
Portsmouth, son of that Richard, a member of Oliver's 
Parliament, 1654, in which year he died, was a merchant 
from Wales, married July 30, 1662, Hannah Star, had 
John, born June 30, 1663; Elizabeth, November 30, 1664, 
died next year; Hannah, July 20, 1666; Mary, November 
17, 1669, and Samuel; was appointed by the crown, 1679, 
president of the province, undertook the office next year 
and died March 27, 1681, leaving large estate. A second 
wife Ursula survived, but was killted by the Indians, 
1694, on a Saturday, as Mather tells, VII, 86; and from 
Belknap we may guess it was on July 21. Hannah mar- 
ried February 16, 1681, Richard Waldron, died February 
14, 1683, and Mary married Julv 1, 16S7, Samuel Pen- 
hallow. Belknap I, 90, 01, 141 f Chalmers, 400. 

Robert Cutt, of Portsmouth, brother of John, went 



to Barbados, from New England, came back, lived at 
Kittery, about 1663, built many vessels; by second wife 
Mary, had Richard, Elizabeth, who married Humphrey 
Eliot, Robert; Bridget, who married Rev. William 
Scriven; Mary and Sarah. His will, of June 18, 1674, 
probated July 6 following, names son Richard, also, so 
' that we may assume he was born by former wife. In the 
inventory of 890 pounds sterling, large for that neigh- 
borhood, are included eight negro slaves, but their ag- 
gregate value is only 111 pound's sterl. His widow mar- 
ried Francis Champernoon.

Charlestown, freeman April 1, 1633; by wife Dorothy,

Isaac Dafforne, perhaps grand-son of John.

GENEALOGICAL GUIDE TO THE EARLY SETTLERS OF AMERICA. 



DAMON, D AMMAN, DAMAN or DAM1NG:— 
Edward Damon, of Marblehead, 1674. Dana, 8. 

John Damon, of Scituate, 1643, came with sister Han- 
nah, minors, under care of William Gilson, their uncle, 
one of tshe chief men of the town, as early as 1633, and 
had his estate. He married June, 1644, Catharine, 
daughter of Henry Marritt, had Deborah, born April 25, 
1645; John, November 3, 1647; Zechary, 1649, died soon; 
Mary, July, 1651; Daniel, February, 1653; Zechary again, 
1654; and his wife died. He married 1659, Martha How- 
land, had son Experience, born 1662; Silence, 1663; 
Ebenezer, 1665; Ichabod, 1668; Margaret, 1670; and 
Hannah, 1672. He was representative 1675-6, and died 
1677, and his widow married Pater Bacon, of Taunton. 
Jdhh was on service in Philip's war. Ebenezer married 
a daughter of Baoon, butt was weak, and his estate was 
in his mother's hands, not managed by him, as Deane 
tells. Deborah married 1666, Thomas Woodworth; 
Experience and Idbabod, also, had sons of same names. 

John Damon, of Reading, freeman 1645, had John, 
who died January 14, 1652 ; and John, again, born March 
18, 1652; daughter Abiah, August 26, 1654; Samuel, June 
23, 1656 ; Joseph, August 18, 1661 ; probably also others ; 
was a deacon, and died 1708. In the Reading family the 
"m" is doubled. 

DANA : — Richard Dana, of Cambridge, married Anna 
Bullard, had John, born April 15, 1649, died in six 
months; Hannah, July 8, 1651; Samuel, October 13, 1653, 
died next month; Jacob, February 2, 1655; Joseph, May 
21, 1656; Benjamin, February 20, baptized April 8, 1660; 
Elizabeth, April 27, 1662; Daniel, March 20, baptized 
April 3, 1663; daughter Abiah, died young; Deliverance, 
March 5, 1667; Sarah, who died January 11, 1670; and 
Sarah again, January 1, 1671 ; twelve in all, of which one 
daughter, probably Hannah, married Samuel Oldham; 
one, perhaps Elizabeth, perhaps Deliverance, married 
Daniel Woodward; and Sarah, married Samuel Hyde. 
The time of his death, by a fall in his barn, is given 
April 2, 1690, but the partition of the estate was not be- 
fore April 15, 1695, when division to widow and four 
sons, beside Oldham, Woodward and Hyde is found. 
Thirteen of this family had been graduated in 1839, at 
Harvard, and thirteen at otiher New England Colleges.

D AND : — John Dand, of Boston, 1641, clerk in the 
prothonotary's office (but I bear not where), gave much 
trouble by joining others in petition for enlargement of 
privilege 1645. Winslow describes him as living in an- 
other man's house at board hire. He was not a free- 
holder. See our General Court's Declaration in Hutch- 
inson's Collections, 211, one of the most curious papers 
in that invaluable collection. We might presume, on his 
ill-success in Massachusetts, that he went home, but 
Farmer says he was of Dover, 1654. Winthrop, II, 262, 
92-5. The learned author of "Gens Sylvestrina," one of 
the most agreeable books of genealogy ever printed, 
says, the Dandls were "the most considerable family in 
the sixteenth century at Mansfield in Nottinghamshire." 
Yet there were mersers, as he tells.

ably called Davy in Frothingham, 181, was in 1680 one 
of the tything men of the town. See Dady.

DANE: — .John Dane, of Roxbury, from County 
Essex, England, came 1636, bringing children of a de- 
ceased wife, Francis, Elizabebh, and John; was perhaps 
the freeman of June 2, 1641, married July 2, 1643, Ann, 
or Hannah, or Annis, widow of William Chandler, and 
died, says the town record jburied, says the church record, 
September 14, 1658. His will, of a week preceding, pro- 
bated October 16, names only those children, of which he 
calls Elizabeth, Howe, perhaps wife of the second Abra- 
ham, of Roxbury. Perhaps he had removed a short time 
to Ipswich, and came back to Roxbury. His widow had 
third husband John Parmenter, of Sudbury, and died 
March 15, 1683. 

Thomas Dane, of Concord, had, I suppose, by wife 
Elizabeth, a daughter born February 24, 1643, and cer- 
tainly by her had Hannah, March 18, 1645, if this be the 
real name of him, printed Dann in the Genealogical Reg- 
ister, VIII, 347, with which confer Genealogical Reg- 
ister, IV, 271. 

William Dane, of Woburn, had Martha, born August 
17, 1671; William, July 5, 1673; Samuel, July 26, 1675- 
John, June 25, 1677; Sarah in 1687, by wife Martha! 
Great difficulty occurs in turning over the records, by fre- 
quent substitution of Dean, or Deane, or Daine, for Dane 
and the reverse.

Gov. Jonathan. His wife Elizabeth had died 1629, in 
England. 

William Danforth, of Newbury, 1667, born only 14 
years before at London, perhaps was soldier in December 
1675, of Johnson's company ; by first wife who died Oct. 

18, 1678, bad no children; by second wife Sarah Thurio, 
had William, Mary, Richard, born January 31, 1680; 
John, December 8, 1681, died October 1, 1772; Jonathan, 
May 18, 1685; Thomas, September 11, 1688; Francis, 
March, 15 1691; and Joseph, May 12, 1694. Descendants, 
says Farmer, are in New Hampshire, and some of them 
spell their name Danford. Eleven of this name gradu- 
ated at Harvard, all are male line descendants of 
Nicholas.

ter of Thomas Gregson, had Joanna, born September 1,

Deffet. He died 1677, his will of March, in that year, 
was probated April 27, following. It gave all to his son

married John Briggs, and second Captain John Minot.

DAVENPORT:— Francis Davenport, of Boston, 
1675, mariner, married Ann, daughter of Dr. William

Humphrey Davenport, of Dorchester, came from 
Barbados, married Rachel, daughter of Thomas Holmes, 
had Richard, removed to Hartford, there had Willam, 
and in 1667, his wife was convicted of playing cards. 
They removed to New York, where greater laxity might 
be indulged in. 

John Davenport, of New Haven, first minister there, 
son of John, says Wood's Athenae Oxonienses, not, as 
the fondness of Mather states, mayor of Coventry, in 
idle attempt to magnify a great man, was born 1597, 
bred at Oxford, but not admitted, as Mather has it, of 
Brazen Nose, 1611, entered 1613, at Merton College, 
thence after two years removed to Magdalen Hall, where 
he proceeded B. D. 1625, was preaching at St. Stephen's, 
Coleman street, London, perhaps not quite so early as 
the Magnalia imports; but being in 1633 complained of 
for nonconforming, went to Amsterdam, thence came to 
New England 1637, with Gov. Eaton,, arrived at Boston, 
June 26, and next year with him settled New Haven'

Mr. Haven, the accomplished editor of Archaeologic 
Americana, vol. Ill, in preliminary remark cxxxvi, cor- 
rects that looselessness of the Magnalia as to the mayor 
of Coventry; yet falls into slight error as to the coming 
of this famous divine. On page 85, he says: "'When the 
times grew favorable for the Puritans, he returned to 
England, from his refuge in Holland;" but more exact 
expression should be, in my judgment thus: "As the 
times grew not favorable for the Puritans, he returned 
no more to England," except to embark privily, perhaps 
without landing, for he dared not appear in London. 
After nearly 30 years of great influence in the Colony of 
his own planting, removed to Boston, freeman 1669, 
having with very injurious controversy been installed 
as successor of Wilson, December 9, 1668, at the first 
church, causing foundation of third church in Boston, 
gathered May 12, 1669, at Charlestown, and violent 
heats in the commonwealth for many years. The great 
body of the clergy favored the new church, as did a 
major part of the assistants, of six opponents, three, in- 
cluding Gov. Bellingham, being of the old church. He 
was at New Haven eager in defence of Goffe and Whal- 
ley, the regicides in 1661, and perhaps much aided in 
their escape. Yet a most curious, if not characteristic, 
letter from him furnishes no small light to the history of 
his acting given by Dr. Stiles, as it tends to exculpate 
or inculpate him according to the eyes with which it is 
read, in the 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII, 327. Witlh his name 
is frequently associated that of a cousin, possibly a brother 
Christopher, born 1598, a Catholic priest of great learn- 
ing, not a Jesuit, under the name of Santa Clara, who 
died May 31, 1680. Mather, III, 52, denies that he was 
a brother, "as a certain Wooden Historian, in his Athe- 
nae Oxonienses has report." By this merciless punish- 
ment of honest Anthony, the immortal author of the 
Magnalia fully proves how much better qualified he was 
for executioner than judge. We know no child but John, 
called only son, though he certainly had youngest son 
Joseph, who died probably before his father, and per- 
haps had daughters before or after coming to New Eng- 
land, and he died March 15, 1670. Elizabeth, perhaps 
his widow, died at Boston, September 15, 1676, aged 73, 
if the grave-stone be correct. In the present age a 
descendant of the venerable father of New Haven, A. 
Benedict Davenport, Esq., calls himself of the 24th gen- 
eration, has confidently carried the line of his family back 
to Orme de Davenport, 1086, or the 20th of the Con- 
queror. Such labors aire seldom reverenced in this 
country. 

Richard Davenport, of Salem, came with Capt. En- 
dicot, in the "Abigail," September, 1682, from Wey- 
mouth, in the County Dorset, a few miles from Dor- 
chester, near where probably he was born about 1606. 
He was freeman September 3, 1634, ensign next month, 
when his friend Endicot. cut out the Red Cross in the 
National banner, in admiration of which rashness he 
gave a daughter born that year, her name Truecross; 
lieutenant, with a happier spirit when he was wounded 
1636, in the Pequot expedition, representative 1637, and 
that year directed to receive the arms from Wheel- 
wright's friends; artillery company 1639; removed to 
Boston, 1642, and was appointed captain of the castle, 
where he was killed by lightning, July 15, 1665. His 
wife was Elizabeth, and children Nathaniel, Truecross, 
born 1634 or more probably '35; Experience, baptized 
August 27, 1637; and John, September 19, 1641, all at 
Salem, but the record of the church being for the earliest 
years lost, the baptism of the oldest child is not known; 
and at Boston, he had Samuel, baptized June 28, 1646; 



Sarah, September 30, 1649; Elizabeth, September 13, 
1652; and William, born May 11, 1656, baptized 7 days 
old. His widow died June 24, 1678. Truecross married 
November 10, 1654, Stephen Minot; and Elizabeth, mar- 
ried Asaph Eliot. William was a sergeant in Phips's 
Quebec expedition, but whether he was married is un- 
known and he died soon after reaching home. . Prince 
Annals, 1, 174. Johnson, W. W. P. 

Thomas Davenport, of Dorchester, 1640, freeman 
May 18, 1642, perhaps living 1660, at Cambridge, died 
November 9, 1685, leaving wife Mary, who died October 
4, 1691; had Sarah, born December 28, 1643; Thomas, 
who was killed in Philip's- war December 19, 1675, in 
Johnson's company; Mary, baptized January 21, 1649; 
Charles; Mehitable, born February 14, 1657; Jonathan, 
March 6, 1659; Bbenezer, April 26, 1661; and John, 
baptized November 20, 1654. Mary married Samuel 
Maxfield. Often in early records, inexperienced readers 
will be misled by finding this name as Danfort or Dam- 
port. Five of this name had been graduated in 1834 at 
Harvard, and eight at the other New England Colleges.

DAVIE:— Edmund Davie, of Harvard College, 1674, 
of whom we know nothing, but what the college cata-

and was then dead. Unsatisfactory conjecture may sup-

Humphrey Davie, of Boston, merchant, son of Sir 
John, who had been created a baronet, September 9, 
1641, came from London 1662, possibly to encourage 
Rev. James Allen, freeman 1665, artillery company 1665, 
representative for Bill-erica, because he had estate there 
1665-9, for Woburn 1678, probably on equal reason, an 
assistant 1679-86; married as second or third wife, Sarah, 
widow of James Richards, of Hartford, who had left large 
estate that caused his removal thither; had by her 
Humphrey and William, and died February 18, 1689. By 
former wife he had John, Harvard College, 1681, but 
whether she came with him from London, I cannot find. 
His widow married Hon. Jonathan Tyng.

porter of Wheelwright and Mrs. Hutchinson, punished 
therefor. Winthrop, I, 248. I presume he is the man 
admitted of the church in January before, but the Elder 
wrote the name Davisse, and called him joiner. Most 
of the names Davie or Davy, Davies or Davis, are con- 
vertable. He may have gone to Duxbury, where one 
of his name sold estate 1650.

DAVIS or DAVIES:— Anthony Davis, of Boston, died 
June, 1674, leaving widow Elizabeth. 

Barnaby Davis, of Charlestown, 1636, or after, came 
in the Blessing, 1635, aged 36, died November 27, 1685, 
aged about 86. Frothingham, 152, has his name 1658, 
at division of wood and comimons on Mistick side; and 
page 183, has Barnaby, Jr., probably his son, in the list 
of householders, 1678. 

Daniel Davis, of Kittery, 1649, freeman 1652. 

Dolor, Dollard or Dollar Davis, of Cambridge, 
1634, is said to have married perhaps in England, Mar- 
gery, sister of Simon Willard, if so, he was probably from 
Kent, and this conjecture is confirmed to me by collateral 
evidence. Yet the grave-yard at Benefield, in County 
Northampton, as Dr. Palfrey assures me, contains the 
names of his ancestors. He removed about 1040, and 
had land that year in Duxbury, and was of that church 
when he removed to Barnstable, and joined that August 
27, 1648, with his wife, but had his daughter Ruth, bap- 
tized at Barnstable, March 24, 1645; was freeman of that 
Colony, 1646; and in the list of those able to bear arms 
1643, is this man's name "and his sons." Who may be 



intended by the last word, is not precisely understood, 
but probably John alone. Yet at the end of that list 
stand John and Nicholas, who might well, therefor, be 
thought brothers, certainly not sons. But two sons he 
did have, Simon and Samuel, both younger by much 
than John, who was executor of his will. Before re- 
moved to Duxbury, he lived some years at Concord, and 
was one of the proprietors of Groton, 1655, engaged in 
its first settlement, and made one of its selectmen by the 
General Court of the Colony. Still it is not likely, that 
he ever inhabited in the new plantation, but leaving his 
youngest son to reside at Concord, went back to Barn- 
stable, and died there 1673. His daughter Ruth, mar- 
ried 1663, it is said,. Stephen Hall; and Mary, who mar- 
ried June 15, 1653, Thomas Lewis, of Barnstable, was 
probably another. 

Edward Davis, of Boston, married September 16, 
1657, Hannah, daughter of Richard Gridley. 

Ephraim' Davis, of Haverhill, married December 29, 
1660, Mary Johnson, of Andover, took oath of allegiance 
November 28, 1677, died 1681, leaving children Stephen, 
Ephraim, Thomas, Jonathan, Mary, Susanna and Hannah. 

Francis Davis, of Amesbury, swore allegiance Dec. 
20, 1677. 

George Davis, of Bpston, 1644, blacksmith, perhaps 
the freeman of 1645, one of the founders of the second 
church, by wife Barbara, who had joined first church 
Aug., 1647, had Samuel, born October 17, 1651; and, if 
the records be not false, John, June 3, 1652; was a ser- 
geant, died early in 1655. He throve by his trade, for 
the inventory Valued, one fourth of George Munjoy's 
ship "Swan," and five sixteenths of Benjamin Munjoy's 
ship "Delight" ; and his widow married January 14, 1656, 
John Brimblecome, first, who was one of the witnesses 
to his will, and for third husband Thomas Chadwell. 
His will made September 23, 1654, was probated April 
25 following, and anticipating the marriage of his widow - 
again, he made various provisions for the two sons. See 
Genealogical Register, V, 306, and IX, 35. 

George Davis, of Lynn, freeman 1647, had Hannah, 
born May 31, 1650; Sarah, September 1, 1651; removed 
to Reading, there had Elizabeth, January 16, 1655; Mary, 
January 16, 1658; John, July 20, 1660; and Susanna, 
May 11, 1662. 

George Davis, of Weymouth, 1654, blacksmith. 

George Davis, of Boston, 1650, went 1654 to North 
Carolina, in his will before departing, provides for wife, 
sons Benjamin, Joseph and five daughters. 

Gershom Davis, of Cambridge, had wife Sarah, who 
died November 20, 1713, aged 55; son Gershom, and died 
February 6, 1718, aged 75. 

Hopewell Davis, of Charlestown, by wife Sarah, had 
Joseph, baptized February, 1686; Ebenezer, May 6, 1688" 
Sarah, November 2, 1690; Ellen, January 14, 1694- and 
John, November 6, 1698. 

Isaac Davis, of Salem, 1637, of Beverly, 1650, perhaps 
was after at Carso; unless this were another whose eld- 
est son Jolhn, born 1660, was living at Gloucester 1733 
with other sons Samuel and James, beside children ot a 
daughter who married a Fitz, and was of Ipswich, and 
another daughter who married Smith. He had after first 
destruction of Falmouth, estate set out 1680 but on 
second destruction probably moved to safer quarters.

baptized at 21 years, on May 6, 1694; and Patience, aged 
18, on April 21, 1695. 

James Davis, of Haverhill, freeman 1666; was, perhaps 
son of James, the aged, of that town, may have married 
a daughter of John Eaton, of Haverhill, had son John, 
and died July 18, 1694. 

James Davis, of Gloucester, by wife Mehitable, who 
died June 9, 1666, had John, born March 10, 1660; James, 
March 16, 1662, died soon; James again, January 22, 
1663, died soon; and Joseph, 1665, died soon. He mar- 
ried December 6, 1666, Elizabeth Bachelor, had Elizabeth 
born September 11, 1669; Abigail, April 13, 1672; Joseph 
again, January 25, 1674; Susanna, November 20, 1676; 
and Ebenezer, January 26, 1682; died 1717. 

James Davis, of Scituate, 1673, there married Eliza- 
beth, daughter of William Randall, and removed to 
Boston. 

Jenkyn Davis, of Lynn, freeman March 9, 1637, a 
joiner, who had been in the employ of Mr. Humphrey, 
who unhappily, put his daughters to board with Davis, 
when he went to the West Indies; by Sarah, had John, 
and a daughter, and died 1662. Winthrop, II, 45. Lewis. 

John Davis, of Boston, 1635, a joiner, artillery com- 
pany, 1643. I presume this to be the same man who 
came in the "Increase," 1635, aged 29; and perhaps was 
the John Davie, friend of Wheelwright, in the former 
article. 

John Davis, of Newbury, 1641, by wife Mary, had 
Mary, born October 6, 1642, died young; John, January 
15, 1645; Zechary, February 22; 1646; Jeremy, June 21, 
1648; Mary again, August 12, 1650; Cornelius, Aprfl 15, 
1653; and Ephraim, September 29, 1655; and died No- 
vember 12, 1675. 

John Davis, of Watertown, married Mary, daughter 
of John Spring, had Mary, born March 20, 1642, and 
probably John and Bnjamin, died early, as did his widow, 
administration being given June 19, 1656. 



John Davis, of Reading, had John, who died Novem- 
ber 4, 1660. 

John Davis, of York, 1650, an important person, kept 
an inn, freeman, probably of Massachusetts, 1652. There 
was also another John, perhaps his son, was lieutenant- 
captain, and at last sergeant-major for the Province, and 
deputy-president 1680-85. 

John Davis, of Bo,ston, brother, perhaps, of Edward, 
a joiner, by wife Return, (daughter of Richard Gridley, 
married April 9, 1656), had Grace, born March 4, 1657. 

John Davis, of Roxbury, 1653, a- tailor. 

John Davis, of New London, 1651-64. 

John Davis, of Charlestown, 1668, fined for hospitality 
to a Quaker. Frothingham, 158. He may have re- 
moved soon to Westerly, where was one John, 1669. 

John Davis, of Lynn, married October 5, 1664, Sarah, 
daughter of Philip Kirkland, had Sarah, born November 
10, 1665, died at two months; Sarah again, February 5, 
1667, died at months; Mary, July 25, 1668; Joseph, 
June 10, 1672, died in July of next year; John, June 16, 
1674; Sarah again, February 1, 1676; Ebenezer, October 

2, 1678, and Benjamin, September 27, 1681. 

John Davis, of Saco, representative 1682, "disaccepted 
as a scandalous person," says the record. 

Joseph Davis, of Kittery, 1660, constable that year, 
may have been son of Nicholas. 

Joseph Davis, of Boston, married May 7, 1662, Eliza- 
beth, daughter of David Saywell, freeman 1666, artillery 
company 1675. 

Joseph Davis, perhaps of Roxbury, there married 
October 28, 1.670, Sarah Chamberlain, but I know not, 
that either belong to that place. In the neighboring 
Joseph, of Muddy River, had Mehitable, born February 

3, 1685. Possibly he may be the man named in the 
letter of Rev. Edmund Browne to Gov. Leverett, printed 

■in Genealogical Register, VII, 268, as Daby. 

Lawrence Davis, of Falmouth, 1662, had Rachel, 
born 1663; Jacob, and perhaps others; removed to Ips- 
wich, during the first Indian war, but came hack 1681, 
but no more is told, only that Rachel married first 
Robert Haynes; and second a Wedgewood, of Hampton. 

Nathaniel Davis, of Mass., came in the "Mary and 
John," or perhaps the "Hercules," having qualified him- 
self by taking oath of allegiance and supremacy, April 16, 
1634, but where he sat down I find not. See Genealog- 
ical Register, IX, 268. 

Nathaniel Davis, of Charlestown, 1677, had married 
March 31, 1675, Mary Convers, who died November 6, 
1690, aged 36; and wife Mary again who died April 18, 
1721, aged 65. Nathaniel, his eldest child, baptized 
April 19, 1677, died at Charlestown, the same year. He 
had also Mary, baptized May 9, 1680; Barnabus, Dec. 
1681; Sarah, July 22, 1683; Zachary, August 5, 1688; and 
Mary, July 16, 1695; and was one of the constables 1690. 

Nicholas Davis, of Charlestown, came in the 
"Planter," early in 1635, aged 40, with Sarah, 48, prob- 
ably his wife, and Joseph, 13, perhaps his son, with four 
servants, whose names are then given, was in 1640 one 
of the promoters of the settlement of Woburn, where his 
wife Sarah, died May 24, 1643, and he married July 12 
following, Elizabeth, widow of Joseph Isaacs; probably 
he removed to York, and was there in 1652. His will, 
of April 27, 1667, probated March 12, 1670, refers not 
to any son, yet opens many remote relations, or perhaps

those of his wife, as cousin Barnard, the wife of Matthew, 
of Boston; cousin William Locke, of Woburn, (spelled 
Owburne); daughter Astine's (or Austin's) children, 
Mary and Sarah, beside Mary, Elizabeth and Mehitable, 
Dodd. 

Nicholas Davis, of Barnstable, able to bear arms 
1643, when he is last on the list, so that possibly it may be 
an error, as Hamblen put him into a list of inhabitants 
admitted after 1660. He may have been of Newport, 
1638, and there learned the strange policy of toleration 
in religion. In Sewel, I, 388, it is said he favored the 
Quakers at their first meeting. He had wife Mary, and 
was banished from Mass. for his peaceful pravity. At 
Newport he was drowned before August 9, 1672, as 
Roger Williams in his big book against the Quakers, 
page 26, tells that in his public conference, there, with 
the friends of George Fox, he made good use of the 
event. 

Philip Davis, of Plymouth, 1638, removed to Dux- 
bury after. Farmer, M. S. 

Philip Davis, of Hartford, came, perhaps, in the 
"Confidence," from Southampton 1638, aged 12; but if 
so, he probably was first at Newbury, where William 
Isley, with whom he came, pitched his tent. He married 
a daughter of Thomas Coleman, of Hadley, was freeman 
of Connecticut, 1656, and died 1689, had two daughters 
but no sons. 

Richard Davis, of Ipswich, 1642. 

Richard Davis, of Roxbury, married about 1654, 
Sarah, daughter of John Burrill, had Richard, born Jan. 5, 
1658, who died next year ; Richard, again, May 26, 1661 ; 
and Sarah, and he died March 6, 1663, his will of Feb- 
ruary 20, being probated March 19, of that year. But 
there is a posthumous child and the widow married 
Samuel Chandler, in 1664, and he died August, 1665. 

Robert Davis, of Sudlbury, came in 1638, aged 30, 
with Margaret, perhaps his sister 26, (who married a 
Burnett)., in the Confidence of Southampton, as servant of 
Peter Noyes, had wife Bridget, who survived, daughters 
Sarah, born April 10, 1646; and Rebecca, and died July 
19, 1655. His will is of July 17, and probated October 
2 of that year. 

Robert Davis, of Yarmouth, 1643, or earlier, had 
Deborah, born January, 1646; Mary, May 28, 1648; An- 
drew, May, 1650; John, March 1, 1652; Robert, August, 
1654; Josiah, September, 1656; Hannah, September, 
1658; Sarah, October, 1660; and Tristram. Perhaps 
Sarah married October 23, 1679, Joseph Young. 

Samuel Davis, of Watertown, removed early in 164(7, 
to Boston, had wife Ann, who died soon; and married 
July 20, 1651, Sarah, daughter of Richard Thayer,, of 
Boston, had Samuel, born March 22, 1654; William, 
September 4, 1656, died next year; and Sarah, December 
19, 1657. Probably he was the freeman of 1645, and 
perhaps brother of George. It may be, that his widow 
married May 6, 1663, Jonathan Hayward. 

Samuel Davis, of Groton, by wife Mary, had a daugh- 
ter born January 31, 1662; John, March 10, 1664; Sarah, 
August 12, 1667; Samuel, January 10, 1669; Barnabus| 
April 17, 1672; and a daughter April 10, 1674; and died 
December 28, 1699. 

Samuel Davis, of Salisbury, married December 19, 
1663, Deborah, daughter of William Barnes, had Samuel^ 



born January 26, 1667. Perhaps he was of Amesbury, 
there took oath of allegiance, December 20, 1677. 

Samuel Davis, of Charlestown, had served under Cap- 
tain Turner, 1676, in Philip's war, but as early as Novem- 
ber, 22, 1658, by wife Mary, had Elizabeth. 

Stephen Davis, of Hartford, 1646, freeman of Con- 
necticut, 1658. 

iSylvanus Davis, of Sheepscott, 1659, swore allegiance 
to the king 1665, wounded by the Indians 1676, at Arow- 
skk, when Capt. Lake was killed, removed to Falmouth, 
1680, there had command of the fort in the next Indian 
war, taken by the French and Indian combined force, 
May 20, 1690, carried to Canada; after his return was 
"put into the Council by the Charter of William and Mary 
1691; wrote an account of the conduct of the war, which 
is in the three Mass. Hist. Collections, I, 101. He 
lived at Hull in latter days, died 1704, leaving wife but 
no children. His will, April 8, 1703, probated May 6, 
1704, gives all his quarter of Casco lands to three daugh- 
ters of James English, each of them paying three pounds 
to his widow, and all his other estate to John Nelson, he 
"promising justice and kindness" to Davis's widow. 
Willis, I, 161, 209. 

Theophilus Davis, of Saco, • constable in 1636. 
Folsom, 33, 121. It is almost certain that he soon re- 
moved. 

Thomas Davis, of Newbury, a sawyer, from Marl- 
borough, in County Wiltshire, came in the "James," 1635, 
embarked at Southampton, in April, arrived at Boston, 
June 3, freeman June 2, 1641, removed next year to Haver- 
hill, where he had son Joseph, and died 1683, aged 80. 
He brought, says Coffin, wife Christian from England, 
and his posterity is numerous. This name among the 
passengers from Southampton in the James, by record at 
State Paper Office, Somerby, read Thomas James. It 
seems a wild error of his or mine; but if my reading be 
correct, his surname may be that of the ship. 

Thomas Davis, of Saco, an early settler, assessed to- 
ward public worship 1636. 

Tobias Davis, of Roxbury, brother of Richard, of the 
same, married Sarah, daughter of Isaac Morrill, had 
Sarah, born February 10, 1647, and his wife died Janu- 
ary 23, by church record, but February 15, says the town, 
1649. He married next, December 13, 1650, Bridget 
Kinsman, had John, born April 17, 1651; Tobias, June 
10, 1653; Isaac, December 7, 1655; Samuel, baptized with 
the three preceding, June 12, 1659, who died young; 
Samuel again, March 24, 1661, died at 18; and Abigail, 
in town records said to be born September 5, 1671- was 
of artillery company 1666, and died April 25, 1690. 

Tobias Davis, of Dover, freeman 1666. 

William Davis, of Boston, by wife Mary, had Abi- 
gail, born October 31, 1635, died at four years; Thomas 
March 15, 1637, died young; Aaron, July 20, 1638, died 

?n X iZ e 5U ohn ' who died y° nn 8> in 1641 ; Trine, August

1 nomas, again, 3, baptized September 7, 1645. 

The Book of Possessions in early days shows William 
ben-., and William Jr., in Boston, but who was father of 
these children is to be determined, I fear, only by conjec-

1656, in the "Speedwell," then 45 years old, and died 
1664, leaving good estate. His will of March 26, 1655, 
made in view of a voyage to Barbadoes, thence to Eng- 
land, probated July 11, 1664, names wife Joan, children 
Daniel and Sarah, brother John, of which we know not 
where he was, sister-in-law Mary Hodges, wife of 
brother-in-law John Anderson, two nephews or nieces, 
perhaps not in this country, and children of brother 
Jeremy Davison, deceased, who was married and lived 
at Lynn, England, as late as 1652. An Indian sagamore 
gave him mortge. of Nahant. His inventory in- 

cluded land in Boston, Charlestown, Pemaquid and about 
2100 acres near Windsor, on both sides of the Connecti- 
cut, was 1869 pounds sterling, 11 shillings, 11 pence. 

Peter Davis, of Stonington, about 1680 or '90, was 
perhaps brother of Daniel, or of Thomas, who was in 
the same quarter at that time. 

William Davis, of New Haven y 1639, had John, Har- 
vard College, 1651, the scholar, lost on his voyage to 
England. He died 1659, leaving widow Martha, who 
was sister of John Wakeman, and died 1663. His only 
surviving child Sarah, married William Russell, and to 
educate his' son Noadiah, the grandmother left sixty 
pounds. 

William Davis, of Salem, 1639, had that year grant of 
land, probably removed to Boston or elsewhere, may be 
the mariner, who at Boston made his will September 14, 
1655, as in Genealogical Register, V, 298, and lb, IX, 141. 

William Davis, of Boston, apothecary, admitted of 
the church July 28, 1644, in which year he married Mar- 
garet, daughter of William Pynchon of Springfield, per- 
haps a second wife. By her he had seven children, of 
which Thomas, born September 3, 1645, may have been 
one; also, Benjamin, Elizabeth, Ephraim, who died Aug. 
2, 1652; and William, the last, born June 25, 1653; and 
his wife died July 3 after. He married next, Huldah, 
daughter of Rev. Zechariah Syrnraes, had Mary, born 
December 3, 1656; Rebecca, August 3, 1658; Huldah, 
December 21, 1659; Ruth, February 12, 1662; John, June 
10, 1663; and Deborah, April 13, 1665, died young; by 
another wife Judith, had Margaret, November 13, 1667; 
and perhaps Hannah. He had still another wife Sarah, 
and hope of progeny by her when he made his will, in 
which all of these children except Deborah, are men- 
tioned. He was a man of wealth, enterprise and des- 
cretion, artillery company 1643, freeman 1645, a captain, 
representative for Springfield, 1652, where probably he 
lived some few years, also for Haverhill, 1668, was em- 
ployed as commander of a troop in Ninigret's troubles, 
joint commissioner in 1653, with Leverett to the Dutch 
Government at New York, and one of the founders of 
the third church. His will, made May 17, 1676, pro- 
bated nine days after, being only two days after his death, 
gave four hundred pounds to his wife Sarah, and con- 
tains many particulars. His widow married Captain 
Edward Palmes, of New London. 

William Davis, of Roxbury, probably brother of 
Tobias, freeman 1673, had John, born October 1, 1643; 
Samuel, February 21, 1645; Joseph, whose date, pre- 
sumed, is October 12, 1649. His wife Elizabeth died or 
was buried May 4, 1658; and he married October 21, next 
Alice Thorp, who had William and Elizabeth, baptized 
June 14, 1663: but perhaps they were not living when 
this second wife died 1678, probably soon after birth of 
Jonathan, February 28, of that year. He had also, 
Matthew, but I know not the day of his birth, or whether 



he was not by a third wife made executrix, but not 
named in the will of December 6, 1683, in which he men- 
tioned all these children and that Matthew and Jonathan 
are under age. He died December 9, 1683, aged 66. 

William Davis, of Boston, by wife Mary, daughter 
of Nicholas Parker, had Joanna, born August 16, 1655; 
and I presume, that the same man by wife Susanna, had 
Joanna, born July 26, 1657, sold his estate in 1658, and 
went to Barbados. 

William Davis, of Marblehead, a petitioner 1668, 
against imposts. 

William Davis, of Boston, mariner, in his will Oct. 
31, 1690, not probated before August 5, 1701, gives estate 
to wife Mary and children, not named. 

William Davis, of Haverhill, married December 31, 
1700, Mary, daughter of John Kelly, Jr., of Newbury. 
In many instances, some of the above named are spelled 
Davies as well as Davis; and the utmost care in arrang- 
ing relationship between parties with a name so widely 
diffused will sometimes be at fault. "A courageous 
soldier," is the designation of a Sergeant Davis in the 
Pequot war, 1637; but who can individualize him? There 
came in the "Elizabeth," 1635, from London to Boston, 
Margaret Davis, aged 32, with her son John, 9; Mary, 4; 
and Elizabeth, 1; the wife and family of some person who 
had come a year or two before, and to find the husband 
and father, may be the happiness of some more skillful 
enquirer. Twenty of this name had in 1834, been gradu- 
ated at Harvard, and as many more at the other New 
England colleges.

DAVIDSON: — Nicholas Davidson, of Charlestown, 
1639, one of the chief men, agent of Gov. Cradock, by 
wife Joanna Hodges, had Daniel and Sarah, who married 
March 24, 1665, Joseph Lynde, artillery company 1648, 
went home 1655, probably on business and came back 

DAWSON: — Daniel Dawson, of Ipswich, may easily 
be misprinted for Davison. But Coffin, in Genealogical 
Register, VI, 250, calls widow, 1693, Margaret. Yet 
she may have been second wife of Davison. 

George Dawson, of Boston, 1679, a Quaker, who 
had been whipped for attending the meeting 1677. 

Henry Dawson, of Boston, admitted of the church 
May 16, 1641, freeman June 2 after, a laborer, whose 
wife was in England. He was in the employment of 
William Hudson, Jr., who, when he went to serve in 
the Parliament's cause against the king, left the care of 
his family two years to this young man in consequence 
of which he was brought into great peril of his life, as 
set forth in Winthrop II, 249. Probably he repented 
soon, for he was in October, 1646, restored to his rank.

Isaac Day, of Cambridge, by wife Susanna, had 
Robert, born October 24, 1686 ; and Susanna, November 
28, 1688. Robert died February 4, 1688. He was a 
London citizen, embroiderer, but when he came, who 
was his wife when he removed are matters unknown. 
Probably he left in the summer of 1692. 

Some two or three Johns can find no proper habita- 
tion, yet one is seen subscribing to memorial, 1668, at 
Salem, against imposts. 

John Day, of Boston, 1677, a merchant, died that 
year, in his will of September 4, calls himself of Frome 
Woodlands, near Warminster, in Wiltshire, on the 
border of Somersetshire, and gives all his property to 
his brother Robert of that place; and probably had no 
wife or children. 

Nathaniel Day, of Ipswich, 1637. Kimball. 

Ralph DaY, of Dedham, freeman 1645, died October 
28, 1677, in his will of September 12 preceding, wife 
Abigail, who Was daughter of Daniel Pond, and children 
John, Ralph, Mary, who was wife of John Paine, Abigail, 
and son-in-law John Ruggles, are named. But his first 
wife was Susan, daughter of Jonathan Fairbanks, who 
in 1668 mentioned her four children in his will, and 
they are found in Dedham church records, to be Fliza- 
beth, baptized July 3, 1648, taken with the town records 
that shows Mary, born November 9, 1649; Susan, 1652; 
and John, April 15, 1654; while the next is found Abi- 
gail, daughter of Ralph and Abigail, April, 1661. 

Robert Day, of Cambridge, came in the "Elizabeth," 
1634, from Ipswich, aged 30, with wife Mary, 28, free- 
man May 6, 1635, went to Hartford, perhaps with 
Hooker, in 1636, or very soon after, had several lots 
among first proprietors. His first wife died probably 
before removal, and the mother of his children was 
Edatha, sister of Deacon Edward Stebbins. She is 
named in his will, May 20, 1648, which is printed in 
Trumbull's Colonial Records of Connecticut, I, 487; but 
though children are provided for, we find not names nor 
number. They were Thomas, Sarah, who married 
September, 1658, Nathaniel Gunn, of Hartford, and next 
November 24, 1664, Samuel Kellogg, of Hatfield, and 
was killed with her son Joseph, September 19, 1677, by 
the Indians ; Mary, who married October 28, 1659, 
Samuel Ely, of Springfield, and next, April 12, 1694, 
Thomas Stebbins, and next, December 11, 1696, deacon 
John Coleman, of Hatfield, where she died 1725 ; and 
John. His widow married John Maynard, of Hartford, 
who died without children, leaving to the children of 
Day, "provided they carry themselves well towards" 
their mother, some decent estate, and next married in 
1657 or 8, Elizur Holyoke, of Springfield, who she sur- 
vived by twelve years, and died October 24, 1688. Of 
descendants of this Robert in the male line, full account 
is printed by Rev. George E. Day, of Northampton,

Robert Day, of Ipswich, came in the "Hopewell," 
Capt. Bundocke, 1635, from London, aged 30, freeman 
June 2, 1641, was living in 1681. Perhaps Sarah, who 
married at Ipswich, June 17, 1674, David Fiske was his 
daughter Hannah, who came in the "Elizabeth and 
Ann," 1635, aged 20, may not have been a relative. 

Stephen Day, of Cambridge, the earliest printer on 
our side of the ocean, was a locksmith of Cambridge, 
England, brought over, in the "John," 1638, by Rev. 
Josse Glover, who died on the voyage. He began 
business in March, 1639, but was, I fear, unthrifty, for 
in 1647, the Almanac of his press purports to come from 
Greene became ruler in the office. Yet he was enter- 
his son who was very young, and the year following 
prising, having for his service, unluckily, been rewarded 
by grant of 300 acres in 1641, he was 2 years after en- 
gaged in settlement of Lancaster, and reduced to work 
as journeyman of Greene all his latter days .He brought 
from England, wife Rebecca, who had been widow of 
William Boardman, had Matthew, and probably after 
coming hither had Stephen, who died December 1, 1639, 
and Moses. His wife died October 27, 1659, he was ad- 
mitted of the church February 28, 1661, but was never 
freeman, and died December 22, 1668, aged 58. A 
catalogue of books of his printing is given by Thomas, 
in his History, I, 227-34. 

Thomas Day, of Gloucester, married December 30, 
1673, Mary Laughton, had Thomas, born May 27, 1675 ; 
Mary, December, 1677; and Joseph, January 24, 1680. 
An earlier Thomas, whose inventory was found by Coffin 
1670, was perhaps father of the preceding, born about 
1651, and of Sarah, about 1652, may have been of Salem, 
a signer of the memorial 1668, against imposts, and 
perhaps father of John, another signer. 

Timothy Day, of Gloucester, freeman 1690, married 

July 24, 1679, wife Phebe had son born February 20, 
1682. 

Wentworth Day, of Boston, 1640, has prefix of re- 
spectability on admission to the church September 22, 
but called a single man; soon after married, had Eliza- 
beth, baptized September 26, 1641, at 8 days old; and 
Wentworth, August 13, 1643, at 6 days. He was a sur- 
geon at Cambridge, and is honored by Rev. Mr. Hale, 
in his tract on Witchcraft, as saving in 1652, a woman 
charged with the horrid offence. Perhaps he went home, 
for one of this unusual name was in 1658, fined and im- 
prisoned as one of the fifth monarchy men, setting up 
the imaginary reign of King Jesus to disturb the abso- 
lute throne of Oliver Cromwell, in his last years. In 
September, 1661, living in London, he had a legacy in 
the will of Edward Shrimpton. 

William Day, of Boston, 1669, a mariner. 

Of descendants of first Robert a Register was pub- 
lished some years since by Rev. George E. Day, who 
shows that nineteen had been graduated at Yale, and 
one at each of the colleges following. Dartmouth, 
Williams, Amherst and Brown, and that ten of the eleven 
min. (ministers?) were living at his date of publication. 
One at Harvard College, 1806, was the earliest of the 
name in that catalogue.

John, born January 2, 1677; Hepzibah, June 5, 1680; 
Lydia, March 26, 1682; Samuel, September 12, 1684; 
and Ruth, July. 20, 1688. He removed 1678 to Sher- 
born; perhaps died early, and his widow married 1690, 
Samuel Eames. See Barry. This name was common 
in this part of the country, some few years since, but 
within a few years, by the legislature, it has been changed 
to How.

Protestant faith was specially subject to cruel repres- 
sion. Here, however, the De Forests and several other 
families embraced the Reformed doctrines. 

Jesse De Forest, the American ancestor, married 
probably at Leyden, Marie du Cloux. His son Isaac, 
sailed for New Amsterdam, October 1, 1636, in the yacht 
"Rensselaerwyck," in the employ of Killian Van Rens- 
selaer, of Amsterdam. He married in New Amsterdam 
June 9, 1641, Sarah du Trieux, daughter of Philip and 
Susannah de Cluney Trieux, and had fourteen children.

DELANO, early DELANOYE, DELAUNY, or 
DELANO Y: — Michael Delano, of New Haven, died 
1667. 

Philip Delano, of Plymouth, came in the "Fortune," 
1621, born of French or Flemish Protestant parents, 
but of the English church at Leyden, Winslow says, and 
19 years old at his coming; was probably son of Jean 
and Marie, de Launey, baptized December 7, 1603, in the 
Walloon church of Leyden ; was freeman of that Colony 
1632, removed soon after to Duxbury, married Decem- 
ber 19, 1634, Esther Dewsbury, and next, 1657, Mary, 
widow of James Glass, daughter of William Pontus, 
(though Ricketson makes her daughter of James 
Churchill, who is wholly unknown to me) ; and had child- 
ren (of which we are uncertain who may be elder or 
younger, whether all, or part, by first wife) Thomas, 
Mary, Philip, John, Jane, Rebecca, Jonathan, Esther, 
and Samuel. But as a family genealogy in MS. has been 
given to me, though it is confined to the descendants of 
Jonathan, yet as it purports to give the offspring of the 
Dewsbury marriage, three sons Samuel, Thomas and 
Jonathan, beside one daughter who died soon, it might 
be probable that three daughters and one son came of 
the second marriage. He removed to Bridgewater. 
was one of the purchasers of Dartmouth, 1652, and in 
1662, of Middleborough, and died about 1681, aged 79 
years old. Mary married November 29, 1655, Jonathan 
Durham. De La Noye was the name at first.

DEMING, DEMON or DEMENT:— John Deming. 
of Wethersfield, 1635, one of the chief settlers, repre- 
sentative very often from 1649 to 61, named in the 
charter of 1662, married Honour, daughter of Richard 
Treat, had John, born September 9, 1638; and others. 
His will of June 26, 1690, with probate 1705, names sons 
John, Jonathan, 1639; Samuel, 1646; David, Ebenezer; 
and five daughters, wives of John Morgan (whose name 
was probably Rachel) ; of Richard Beckley ; of Thomas 
Hurlbut (whose name was Mary); of Thomas Wright, 
and probably Sarah, wife of Samuel Moody, beside some 
grand-children. 

Nicholas Deming, of Pemaquid, swore fidelity to 
Massachusetts, 1674. 

Thomas Deming, of Wethersfield, perhaps brother of 
first John, married July 24, 1645, Mary Sheaffe, was of 
Farmington, and removed to Southampton, L. I., thence 
to Easthampton, where posterity is still living. Some- 
times in the records the name is Demon or Dement, 
and the affinity is exceedingly difficult to be traced with 
exactness. Eight of this name had, in 1828, been grad- 
uated at New England colleges.

DENISON:— James Denison, of New Haven, mar-

Boykem, had James, born August, 1664, died soon; 
John, November, 1665, died at 3 years; Mary, or Mercy, 
July 26, 1668; Sarah, April 12, 1671; Hannah, 1673: 
probably died young ; John and James, again twins, Feb- 
ruary 6, 1677, of which James died soon; Elizabeths 
November 24, 1681; and James, again, January 5, 1683i 
died May 8, 1719 ; aged 78. Sarah married 1710, Joseph 
Sackett ; and Elizabeth married 1707, Samuel Harrison. 

John Denison, of Ipswich, 1648, by Farmer, was 
thought to be a brother of the major-general, but I can 
hardly think so, unless he went home, as we know no 
more of him. 

Robert Denison, of Milford, about 1645, had Samuel 
born 1656; Esther, 1658; and Hannah, 1662; removed 
1667 with Branford people to Newark, N. J. 

Thomas Denison, of Kittery, 1652. 

William Denison, of Rokbury, came with wife Mar- 
garet, and sons Daniel, Edward and George, in 1631. 
and was, perhaps, in the Lion, with Winthrop's wife and 
eldest son, beside apostle Eliot, in the record of whose 
church he stands third in the list; freeman July 3, 1632, 
representative 1635, but in 1637 taking sides with Wheel- 
wright, was disarmed. His wife died February 3, 1646 
in the church records of Eliot's affection, called "old 
mother Denison" ; and he died January 25, 1654. 

William Denison, of Boston, living at Pulling Point, 
married October 27, 1659, Mary Parker. Of this name 
six had been graduated in 1834, at Harvard, but not one 
within 90 years, and of them J am uncertain about the 
parentage of Daniel, in 1690, and George, in 1693, but 
the earlier has the star marq in the catalogue of 1698, 
at other New England colleges seven had been gradu- 
ated, beside two with double "n."

DENMAN:— Alexander Denman, perhaps of Hamp- 
ton, married about 1678, the widow of Abraham Perkins, 
Jr., probably daughter of Thomas Sleeper. 

John Denman, of Dorchester, had Mary, who mar- 
ried Clement Maxfield. But great uncertainty prevails 
with reference to his residence, as no success followed 
the search for the line in Dorchester. In the adminis- 
tration on estate of widow Smead by her brother Israel 
Stoughton, 1639, of Dorchester, this man is entitled to 
a share of her property, as well as his daughter Max- 
field.

came over in 1638 or 9; and we fear, that the long dis- 
sension at Wethersfield about Rev. Henry Smith made 
it desirable for him to move about 1644, and he went to 
Stamford, and after a few months or years, to Hemp- 
setad, Long Island, where he died 1663. Probably he 
had family, perhaps son Daniel. We learn from Mather, 
that he had been a minister at Halifax, in Yorkshire, 
and most of his chapter 9, in Book III, 95 is taken up 
with telling that he was a little man, blind of one eye, 
and wrote a system of divinity. Better authority tells 
that he was of good family, and had, in 1631, curacy of 
Coley Chapel in that large parish. 

Richard Denton, of Dorchester, married December 
11, 1657, Ruth, daughter of Thomas Tileston, died Dec. 
28, 1658. His widow married October 13, 1663, Timothy 
Foster.

DERBY:— Edward Derby, of Braintree, 1660, mar- 
ried January 25 of that year, Susanna Hooke, had Mary, 
Eleazer and others. This Eleazer had Eleazer, and was 
grand-father of Rev. Jonathan in Harvard College Cata- 
logue, 1747, given Dorby. 

Francis Derby, of Warwick, died 1663. His will of 
October of that year mentioned wife Ann, eldest son 
Francis, and other child without naming him. The 
widow married John Read. Her son Francis was born 
January 20, 1660; and Eleazer, March 21, 1662. 

Roger Derby, of Ipswich, 1671, came from Tops- 
ham, in Devonshire, removed 1681 to Salem, there died 
1698. In England he had married August 23, 1668, 
Lucretia Kilham or Hilman, who died May 25, 1689, 
and had Charles, born in England, July 27, 1669; Exper- 
ience, December 18, 1671; Samuel, November 24, 1673; 
Roger, January 1, 1675; John, February 15, 1677; Rich- 
ard, October 8, 1679 ; Lucretia, August 17, 1681 ; and 
Ebenezer, July 9, 1683, died at 5 years; a second wife 
Elizabeth, by which he had Elizabeth, March 14, 1692; 
Margaret, December 10, 1695 ; and Martha, September 
11, 1697. Martha married 1719, Joshua Hicks. He 
was a shopkeeper, assisted by his wife in that way, and 
founder of the distinguished family of this name, great 
grand-father of Elias Hasket Derby, who died 1799, at 
Salem. Variation of this patronymic to Dorby and 
Darby, may be presumed. Nine of this name, including 
Rev. Jonathan Dorby, 1747, minister of Scituate, a man 
of great promise, great grandson of Edward, had been 
graduated in 1828, at Harvard and one at Bowdoin.

Dearing. 

Henry Dering, of Boston, 1663, born, as the familv 
genealogy has it, August 16, 1639, married June 8, 1664, 
Ann, widow of Ralph Benning, had Ann, born May 31, 
1667; he married next, November 15, 1676, Elizabeth, 
widow of Theodore Atkinson, daughter of Edward 
Mitchelson, had Elizabeth, born January 4, 1679; Mary 
and Martha, twins, 1682, both died young; and Henry, 
October 6, 1684. He was ensign in one of the Boston 
Militia Companies, and he and his wife were buried 
1717, in one grave; as in another were Robert Winsor 
and wife the same evening. Hutchinson, II, 223. Eliza- 
beth married William Welsteed. Another Deering 
family, which I am unable to get an account of, was of 
Braintree, and spread to Wrentham.

DESBOROUGH:— Isaac Desborough, of Lynn, 
came in the Hopewell, Captain Bundock, from London, 
1635, aged 18. He was of Elltisley, about 12 miles 
from Cambridge, England, was, no doubt, related to 
Major-General John, who married a sister of Oliver 
Cromwell, and so by the usurper, entrusted to be of his 
upper house; and we may be sure went home in a few 
years, after 1638, when Lewis gives him residence here. 

Samuel Desborough, of New Haven, 1639, probably 
from London, son of James of Elltisley in County Cam- 
bridge, England, lord of that manor, probably brother 
of Isaac, born November 13 or 30, 1619, was one of the 
early settlers of Guilford, 1641, and at the gathering of 
the church, June 19, 1643, though so young, he was one 
of the seven pillars. The name of his wife is not found, 
probably he had more than one; and daughter Sarah, 
born March, 1649; is the only record of his family. In 
Mather, II, cap. 12, he is called John in the list of 
Assistants of the Colony, but that error is less gross 
than that of the date 1637, which was before any part 
of the colony was occupied by Christians. He went 
home in the Autumn of 1650, with his minister Whit- 
field. His wife died of small-pox, late in 1654; and he 
married Rose, widow of Samuel Penoyer, whose brother 
William, a merchant of London, benefactor of Harvard 
College, was trustee in the marriage settlement. Being 
brother of John, the Major-General, who had married a 
sister of Cromwell, and was one of the lords, he got 
rapid preferment, was a general officer, commissioner 
of revenues, and was soon chosen to parliament, in 1651, 
for Edinburgh, and in 1656, by Oliver's favor was re-

turned to another of his assemblies, nicknamed Parlia- 
ments for Mid-Lothian, and rose to be Chancellor for 
the ancient kingdom, with 2000 lbs. sterl. annual allow- 
ance, in which station he continued some time under 
Richard. That successor in the royal protectorship, 
his brother, was one of the principal instruments of 
overthrow; as he had, indeed, successfully counteracted 
the desperate ambition of the great captain for the title 
of king, though he was elevated by his brother-in-law 
to a seat in the "other house," with the empty name of 
Lord. See the very copious and curious letter of Maid- 
stone to Gov. Winthrop of Conn., 3; Mass. Hist. Coll., 

I, 185. How long he preserved this dignity in the con- 
quered kingdom is not told. He died December 10, 
1690, at family estate of Elsworth, Cambridgeshire. See

admiration of that author induced him to accompany or

1, 1647; James, May 6, 1650, perhaps, but the year is 
not plain; John, November 6, 1652; and Abigail, Sep-

from Gregory has enlarged the family with Pelig, 1658.

Richard Dexter, of Boston, admitted a townsman 
February 28, 1642, was of Charlestown, 1644, on Mystic

preacher Marmaduke Matthews, of Maiden, he had 
Sarah, born November 1, 1644, and other children of 
whose names I know only Elizabeth, who married about 
1658, James Mellen; and Alice, wife of Benjamin 
Mussey, both born perhaps in England, and two other 
children, it is said, of which one was John, born about 
1640. He was, I think, grandfather of John, and father 
of Rev. Samuel, born at Maiden, October 23, 1700, Har-

DICKINSON:— John Dickinson, of Salisbury, 1640, 
had wife Mary, who died April 16, 1647; and by her 
had Mary, born March 12, 1640 ; and John, October 20, 
1642; had, perhaps, Ann, a second wife, died 1679; and 
he married April 14, 1681, Alice Roper, who may have 
been the widow of John, of Dedham; and he died 
December 30, 1683. 

Nathaniel Dickinson, of Wethersfield, 1637, town- 
clerk, 1645, representative 1646-56, removed 1659, to 
Hadley, was deacon in both places, freeman 1661, lived 
a few years at Hatfield, but went back to Hadley, 
died June 16, 1676. Four children, John, Joseph, 
Thomas and Hannah or Ann, he took with him on first 
going to Wethersfield, there had other six, Samuel, 
born 1638 ; Obidiah, April 15, 1641 ; Nathaniel, August, 
1643, or perhaps four years earlier; Nehemiah, about 
1644; Hezekiah, February, 1646; and Azariah, October 
4, 164S. Hannah, who in her days is called Ann, mar- 
ried 1) John Clary, Jr., 1670, who died at Northfield; 
and 2) Enos Kingsley, of Northampton. 

Philemon Dickinson, of Salem, tanner, came with 
Benjamin Cooper, of Brampton, County Suffolk, as one 
of his servants, (but this might be to deceive an arbitrary 
government), embarked May 10, 1637, in the "Mary 



Ann," from Yarmouth, had grant of land 1639, admitted 
of the church 1641, freeman June 2, 1641, married Mary 
daughter of Thomas Payne, of Salem, had baptized there 
Mary, March 20, 1642; Thomas, March 10, 1644; Eliza- 
beth, 1646 ; and Peter, July, 1648 ; removed to Southold, 
L. I., and was in 1662 received as freeman of Connect- 
icut, but his will was presented in New York, where his ' 
widow was made administrator, October 28, 1672. Uni- 
formly this name is Dickerson in New York records, as 
it is found in the Augmentation Office, Westminster 
Hall, on the return from the custom house at Yarmouth, 
but the name of baptism is spelt Feleman, that seems 
much unlike that of the friend of St. Paul. Hon. Mahlon 
Dickinson, late a Senator of U. S. from New Jersey, is 
a descendant. 

Thomas Dickinson, of Fairfield, had been at New 
Haven, 1642, and it is unknown when he removed to 
Fairfield, but there he died about 1658, his inventory 
being of September 11, leaving Thomas, three daugh- 
ters, and widow Mary. 

Thomas Dickinson, of Rowley, 1643, died 1662, leav- 
ing James and four daughters. Of thirty-one gradu- 
ates of New England colleges, only three (1834) had 
been of Harvard.

DICKSON:— William Dickson, of Cambridge, free- 
man May 18, 1642, by wife Jane, who died December 4, 
1689, aged about 73, had Lydia, Mary, born August 10, 
1644, who died or was buried July 21, 1648; Abigail, 
March 10, 1648; Mary again, January 17, 1650; Hannah

1636, from Bitteswell County, Leicester, where he had

England, about 1630. His will of May 1, 1666, pro- 
bated June 1, 1667, is abstracted in Genealogical Reg- 
ister, VII, 225. 

John Dillingham, of Ipswich, who came in the fleet 
with Winthrop was perhaps, brother to Edward, a man 
of respectable condition, as is proved by the prefix, at 
his request, October 19, 1630, and also at admission as 
freeman May 18 following, came from Leicestershire, 
was first at Boston, being No. 71 of the list of members, 
and dead is written against it, so that he died soon, leav- 
ing wife Sarah, and children Edward "and Sarah; but 
Sarah alone was living when her mother made her will at 
Ipswich, July 10, 1636. She married John Caldwell, 
and was probably a relative to Richard Saltonstall and 
Samuel Appleton, as may be judged from that instru- 
ment. See the fine Appleton family memorial.

Dimmock, of Dorchester, 1635, selectman that year, 
freeman May 25, 1636 ; removed to Hingham 1638, next 
year to Scituate, and in 1640 to Barnstable, of which he 
was August 7, 1650, ordained ruling Elder, and repre- 
sentative five years, being the first from the town in 
December, 1640. He had Thomas, perhaps John, and 
certainly Timothy, baptized January, 1640, died in a few 
months; Mehitable, April 17, 1642; Shubael, September 
15, 1644; besides a son and daughter, twins, buried 
without names, March 18, 1641. His noncup. (?) 
will give all to his wife for the reason "that the children 
were hers as well as his." Various spelling has this 
name appeared in; and it may, originally, be the same 
as that of Dymocke, the hereditary champion of Eng- 
land, who at coronations, owes the service of challenge 
to all competitors for the crown.

born January 9, baptized January 17, 1636; Abigail, bap- 
tized October 8, 1637, though the town record has it 
born in December; and Fathergone, born December 
25, 1638, in the church records of his baptism on January

DISBROW, DISBOROW or DESBROUGH:— 
Nicholas Disbrow, of Hartford, 1639, an early settler, 
not an original proprietor, married 1640, Mary Brunson, 
had Phebe, baptized December 20, 1646; Abigail, born 
February 1, 1649; and probably more; and, after 1669, 
says Porter, he married Elizabeth, widow of Thwaite 
Strickland; died in 1683, aged 71, and left four daugh- 
ters. Mary, married Obidiah Spencer; one married 
Samuel Eggleston; Phebe married John Kelsey; and 
Abigail married Robert Flood. In the year of his 
death, some ridiculous mischief is, by the Magnalia, VI, 
69, honored as a tragedy of witchcraft; but Cotton bor- 
rowed the nonsense from his father's Remarkable 
Providense, page 113. By Colonial Records of Con- 
necticut, I, 45, he seems to have been unfortunate in his 
early relations. 

Peter Disbrow, of Rye, in New Haven jurisdiction, 
1660, of which he was one of the purchasers from the 
Indians, representative 1665, perhaps also for Green- 



wich, in 1681 was called 50 years old. He married Sarah 
daughter of Nicholas Knapp, of Stamford. A John Dis- 
brow, of Rye, 1683, may have been his son; also Thomas, 
Fairfield, 1685, or earlier, who had wife Mercy, and son 
Thomas, who seems to be of age at death of his father 
early in 1707.

DIX: — Anthony Dix, of Plymouth, one of the first 
comers, 1623, in the 'Ann," took a share in the division 
of lands next year, but not in the division of cattle, 1627. 
because he left the Colony and joined with Conant and 
other Massachusetts people, freeman May 18, 1631, was 
taken by the pirate Bull in 1632, but allowed easily to 
escape, and in 1637, was of Charlestown or Salem, had 
wife Tabitha, who after his death married Nathaniel 
Pitman; and was lost by shipwreck of his thirty ton 
boat on Cape Cod, December 15, 1638, the same storm in 
which Dinely perished at Boston. This we learn from 
Danforth's Almanac. See Winthrop, I, 287; who spells 
the name Dick which Felt prefers to give as Dike, and 
both Dikes and Deekes are found in some records. 

Edward Dix, of Watertown, came probably, in the 
fleet with Winthrop, and was first at Boston, No. 49, 
among members of the church, freeman March 4, 1635, 
by wife Jane, whose family name was Wilkinson, had 
Abigail, born May 2, 1637; Mary, May 2, 1639; John, 
September 4, 1640; and Rebecca, February 18, 1642, had 
second wife Susanna, who survived him; was aselectman 
and died July 9, 1660. The daughters were all married, 
viz., Abigail, December 1, 1653, to Thomas Parks, of 
Cambridge; Mary, February 5, 1663; Abraham Brown, 
Jr. ; and Rebecca, February 18, 1668, Thomas Flagg, Jr. 
His will of June 25, 1660, makes son John executor, 
but the inventory was sworn to December following, by 
John Wincoll, his guardian. Bond gives him another 
daughter Deborah, without date of birth, who married 
Richard Barnes of Marlborough, he says, and distin-

guishes him from the Boston church member by re- 
marking that he embarked at the age of 19, on January 
16, 1635, and that Jane Wilkinson, aged 20, embarked 
at the same time. So that there must have been two of 
the same name. But the member of the Boston church, 
and not the youth of 19, must have been that freeman, 
and this Deborah must have been a widow, for she was 
mother of Leonard, of Wethersheid. 
John Dix, of Taunton, 1669. Baylies, II, 241. 
John Dix, of Hartford, perhaps brother of Leonard, 
was required by court to marry Mary Birdwell, but was 
complained of for beating her, 1676, was still there taxed 
1683; sold his house and land 1686, and one of his child- 
ren, John, died 1692. 

Leonard Dix, of Wethersfield, 1645, had wife Sarah, 
and died December 7, 1697, leaving John, Samuel and 
three daughters. He had been of Branford, and had 
grant of land there 1648; was born probably 1624, and 
the will which names the daughters Mercy, Hannah, 
and Elizabeth, provided for the widow who died 1709. 
Ralph Dix, of Ipswich, 1647, fisherman, had wife 
Esther and children John, born March 12, 1659 ; Samuel, 
August 28, 1661 ; removed next year to Reading, there 
had Stephen, June 18, 1664; and Stephen again, Decem- 
ber 14, 1672; freeman 1684, and died 1688. Of his 
descendants are Rev. Samuel, Harvard College, 1758, 
and J. A. Dix, late U. S. Senator from New York. 

Ralph Dix, of Maiden, freeman 1685, had lived at 
Reading years before. 

Samuel Dix, from Norwich, England, had leave to 
embark at Great Yarmouth, April 8, 1637, being aged 
43 years, with wife Joane, 38; two children, Priscilla 
and Abigail, and two servants William Storey and Daniel 
Linsey, to come to Boston to inhabit, but I have not yet 
learned where he sat down. 

William Dix, of Hartford, perhaps brother of Leon- 
ard, a single man, died March, 1676 or 7. Six of this 
name had been graduated at Harvard in 1834.

DIXEY:— John Dixey, of Salem, 1639. Felt. 
Thomas Dixey, of Salem, 1637, had there baptized, 
Mary, January 12, 1645; Abigail, October 1, 1648; 
Thomas, January 29, 1654; Margaret, March 16, 1656; 
and John, April 26, 1657; was of Marblehead, 1674, died 
1691. 

Another Thomas, at Marblehead, signed the petition 
against imposts 1688, as did the Salem man. Yet per- 
haps it was the same man, for in such cases it is some- 
times thought that more value attaches to the number 
than to the argument, and undue artifice is employed to 
swell the list. Margaret, aged 18, was one of the ser- 
vants of Percival Greene, embarked at London, 1635, 
in the "Susan and Ellen." 

William Dixey, of Salem, had come to Cape Ann, 
1629 was next at Lynn, had baptized at Salem, Abigail, 
December 25, 1636; Ann, May 17, 1638; John, 1639; 
Elizabeth, 1641 ; and others ; freeman May 14, 1634 ; was 
captain of Beverly, about 1677, and died 1690, aged 82.

DIXON: — Jeremiah Dixon, of New Haven, 1639, 
one of the seven for founding of the church June 4, re- 
moved before 1644. 



William Dixon, probably was of Charlestown, 1633- 
S, Kittery, 1649, freeman 1652, died March, 1666, per- 
haps then of York. In his will of February 13 of that 
year, gave to wife Joan, son James, daughter Susanna 
Frost, perhaps wife of Charles, to John Brown, and to 
children of Henry Milbury. Seven of this name, be- 
sides four called Dickson, had, in 1834, been graduated 
at the New England colleges, though none of either at 
Harvard. See Dickson.

DIX WELL: — James Dixwell, of New Haven, a pro- 
prietor 1685, unless the record be wrong, as by confusion 
with the assumed surname I suspect. 

John Dixwell, of Dorchester, 1640, gave his share, 
with others, in Thompson's Island, February 7, 1642, 
for support of a free school. 

John Dixwell, of New Haven, came in 1664, it is 
said, after long concealment in Europe or elsewhere, 
flying from prosecution as one of the regicides, but it 
is supposed that his first quiet residence was at Hadley, 
with Goffe & Whalley, under shelter of Rev. John Russell, 
though the length of time is unknown. At New Haven 
he was called by himself and others, James Davids, mar- 
ried November 3, 1678, I think for second wife, Joanna, 
widow of Benjamin Ling, with whom who died in few 
weeks) he obtained comfortable property, and he mar- 
ried again October 23, 1677, Bathsheba How, had Mary, 
born June 9, 1679; John, March 6, 1681; and Elizabeth, 
July 14, 1682, who died young. His widow died at 
Middletown, December 27, 1729, aged 83, so that she 
was 39 years younger than her husband. His conceal- 
ment was perfect, but his real name was known to one 
or more of the chief people and confessed by himself 
shortly before his death March 18, 1689, in his 82d year. 
His only daughter Mary, married Decmber 23, 1707, 
John Collins, of Middletown. The family was and is 
still highly respected in Kent; and in the great civil war, 
the head of it Sir Basil stood and suffered for the royal 
cause.

DOWNING:— Benjamin Downing, of Hatfield, 1679, 
took the oath of allegiance and married the same year, 
Sarah, daughter of William Hunter. 

Dennis Downing, of Kittery, 1650, in 1652, swore 
allegiance to Massachusetts, and was killed by the 
Indians 1697, unless it was a son of the same name. 

Emanuel Downing, of Salem, from London, where 
he was a lawyer of the Inner Temple, inhabitant of the 
parish of St. Michael, Cornhill Ward, was probably son 
of Emanuel, a clergyman in Ireland, came in 1638, with 
his wife Lucy, daughter of Adam Winthrop, Esq., of 
Groton, in County Suffolk, where she was baptized 1601, 
sister of our first Governor of Massachusetts, married 
1622. They were admitted of the church 1638, and he 
was sworn a freeman 1689, representative the same year 

1640, 1641, 1644 and 1648, was proposed for an Assist- 
ant in 1641, but not chosen. His children were George, 
1623 or 4; Mary, who came over in 1633; James, who 
came over with his uncle, the Governor, 1630; Susan, 
who came with Mary, Ann, Lucy, and these following 
born on this side of the ocean, John, 1640; and Dorcas, 

1641. He went home in 1642, back next year, and went 
again 1644, but came back next year. The date of his 
death is not found, nor that of his wife, though we see 
proof of his request to the General Court, September 
1653, for his 600 acres to be laid out, and of her living 
1656, when she gave to Capt. Joseph Gardner dowry on 
his marriage with her daughter, and the same shows 
that her husband Emanuel was dead. 

John Downing, died at Boston, 1694, was a merchant 
from. Nevis. 

John Downing, of Charlestown, to his wife Joanna, 
who bore him Mary, 1659, was given administration of 
his estate, 1663.

daughter of Richard Brabrook, had John, 1675; Mar- 
garet, 1679; and Richard.

Philip's war with Capt. Turner, 1676, on Connecticut 
River settlement at Hatfield, married soon after Mary, 
widow of Thomas Meakins, Jr., had Jonathan, 1677; 
and John, 1678. 

Malcolm Downing, of Lynn, a Scotchman, married 
1653, Margaret Sullivan, had Mary, 1655 ; Hannah, 1657 ; 
Sarah, 1659; Margaret, 1661; Priscilla, 1662; Catharine, 
1665; John, 1667; and Joanna, 1671. 

Richard Downing, of Ipswich, died 1702, but I know 
nothing more of him, except that in 1664 (three years 
before he married) he was 27 years old. 

Theophilus Downing, of Salem, 1642, had grant of 
land that year, and son Theophilus, 1642; Ann or Han- 
nah, 1644; and Benjamin, 1647; in the last instance the 
child is noted as of Ellen Downing. He was a fisher- 
man, and was of Marblehead part of the time. 

Wilt-tam Downing, of Boston, 1690, freeman that 
year.

DYER:— Benjamin Dyer, of Boston, freeman 1675, 
his wife died 169§, her name was Mary, and he may 
have been son of Thomas. 

George Dyer, of Dorchester, sat on the jury at 
Court of Assistants, September, 1630, and may well be 
presumed to have come on the "Mary and John," re- 
quested admission as freeman and sworn October and 
May following. Constable 1632, had wife Elizabeth, 
daughters Elizabeth and Mary.

Sheriff of the Company, died 1713. 

John Dyer, came in the "Christian," at the age of

wright, def ranchised, and 1638,' driven to Rhode Island. 
Other children were William, Henry, Mahershallalhas- 
baz, and Charles. At Newport, he was in good esteem, 
Secretary of that colony, and prevailed with the govern- 
ment of ours in 1659, when his wife had come to Boston 
to preach Quakerism, and was condemned to die there- 
for to spare her life ; but the insane desire of martyrdom 
led the poor woman back here in 1660 to. the scaffold; 
serving to show how useless was the unnatural lenity of 
Endicott, who knew well what the honor of God 
demanded. 

William Dyer, of Dorchester, died 1672, aged 93. 

William Dyer, of Lynn, had Mary, 1673; and James :

EARLE: — Francis Earle, a soldier, 1675, in Moseley's 
company at. the great Narragansett swamp fight. 

John Earle, of Northampton,, 1662, had come to 
Boston, 1656, aged 17, in the "Speedwell," from London, 
at Northampton, about 15 years, removed to unknown 
place, after having there married 1663, Mary, daugh- 
ter of first John Webb, and had Noah, John" and three 
daughters, of whom Mary was, perhaps, one. He may 
have been one of the Townsmen of Dartmouth, in 1686, 
or it may have been son of same name. 

Ralph Earle, of Rhode Island, 1638, among free- 
man 1655, had been admitted an inhabitant 1639, per- 
haps had sons Ralph, Thomas and William; and it is 
mentioned in Church's Indian wars. But in 1686, there 
were both Ralph, sen. and jr., among townsmen at 
Dartmouth, it may be doubted which of the two he 
meant. One, not the jr., is called the son of William. 
I think Ralph, of Portsmouth, R. I., 1638, that pur- 
chased 1653, of Underhill his conquest at Hartford,, 
(from the Dutch suspicions soon after the exploit), was 
he who made his will 1673, naming wife Joan executrix. 

Robert Earle, of Boston, 1679, kept the prison 1681, 
and several years after; died 1698. 

Robert Earle, of Newport, had come in the "Her- 
cules," I suppose, 1643, to some part of Mass., was born 
1606, it is said, yet had wife in 1699, living at age of 105, 
however unlikely that she was so many years older. 
There were Roger and Samuel at Boston, 1695, of which 
the fetter died 1706, aged 34.

EAST: — David East, of Boston, mariner, married 
Abigail, widow of Jonathan Woodbury, daughter of 
Henry Phillips, and administration of his estate was 
given her 1685. She not long after married Thomas 
Walter. 

Francis East, of Boston, 1636, a carpenter, freeman

Elizabeth, 1644; David, 1647; Sarah, 1649; and Daniel, 
1652; he may be the man who died in 94th year; Sewall, 
who calls him father, puts it 1687. His last child was 
Rebecca, 1656. ,* 

William East, of Milford, 1639, had Solomon, bap- 
tized 164S. In 1676, he had 2nd wife Mary, widow of 
Robert Plum, and died 1681, without children. His

EASTMAN: — Roger Eastman, an original proprie- 
tor, ancestor of all, it is believed, of the name in the 
land, died 1694, aged 83, and his widow Sarah, died 
1698. They had John, 1640; Nathaniel, 1643; Philip, 
1644; Thomas, 1646; Timothy, 1648; Joseph, 1651; 
Benjamin, 1653; Sarah, 1655; Samuel, 1657; and Ruth, 
1662. He probably came from Southampton, 1638, on 
board the "Confidence," with many who sat down at 
Salisbury. • 

EASTON:— John Easton, of Hartford, had Sarah. 
1670; Mary, 1672; Sarah, 1675; John, 1679; Mary, 1681; 
Mehitable, 1683; Abigail, 1687; and John, 1689. 

Joseph Easton, of Cambridge, freeman 1635, re- 
moved early to Hartford, where he had Joseph, John 
and perhaps other children, and was living 1685. 



Nicholas Easton, of Ipswich, one of the earliest 
settlers, a tanner, from Wales, came in the "Mary and 
John," 1634, freeman 1634, was representative 1635, and 
that year removed to Newbury, but, being a favorer 
of Wheelwright, was disarmed 1637, and went to Rhode 
Island, there in 1638, was chosen Assistant. A second 
wife Christian, widow of Thomas Beecher, who had been 
widow of Thomas Cooper of London, he married 1638, 
and she probably was mother of several of his children, 
but as she lived to 1665, we may presume that by third 
wife, Ann Clayton, married 1671, he had no issue. His 
children were John, 1621, and perhaps Daniel, Peter, 
Joshua, Nicholas, Mary, Patience, Elizabeth and Waite. 
He was President in 1672 and 3, was Governor, died 
1675, aged 82. His widow Ann married Gov. Henry 
Bull and died 1708.

in honor forever, for in her petition to Sir William 
Phips, the Governor, she begged not for her own life, 
which she knew must be vain, but only "that no more 
innocent blood may be shed." 

Jeffry Easty, of Salem, 1637, had then a grant of

EATON :— Francis Eaton, of Plymouth, came in the 
"Mayflower," 1620, with wife Sarah and son Samuel, 
asd in 1624, had Rachel. It is thought that his wife 
of the "Mayflower," died soon after landing, and a 
second wife died soon, but Bradford says that he took 
third wife, and had three children by her. In the div- 
ision of lands 1627, this wife is called Christian, sup- 
posed to be Christian Penn, who came in the "Ann," 
1623, no other in the Colony having such a name. By 
her he had Benjamin, 1627; and he died probably 1633, 
for his widow married 1634, Francis Billington. 

Jabez Eaton, perhaps of Dorchester. See Heaton. 

John Eaton, of Watertown, freeman 1636, removed 
to Dedham, had by wife Abigail, born there, John, 1640; 
and Jacob, 1642; besides other children, and died 1658, 
leaving John, Mary and Abigail, mentioned with their 
mother in his will. 

John Eaton, of Salisbury, 1646, by wife Martha, had 
Esther; Thomas, 1647; Martha, 1648; Elizabeth, 1650; 
Ann, 1652; Sarah, 1654; Mary, 1656; Samuel, 1659; 
Joseph, 1661; and Ephraim, 1663; and died 1668, per- 
haps at Haverhill, leaving a daughter, wife of George 
Brown, and perhaps Ruth. 

John Eaton, of Salisbury, by wife Mary, had Mary, 
1685; James, 1691; Samuel, 1692; perhaps Martha, 
1695; and Jonathan, 1698. 

John Eaton, of Reading, by wife Elizabeth, married 
1639, had Thomas, 1661; and Elizabeth, 1662; perhaps 
other children, freeman 1677. 

JdHN Eaton, of Haverhill, had a daughter who mar- 
ried 1660 or 70, James Davis, of the same. 

Jonas Eaton, of Watertown, removed to Reading, 
by wife Grace had Mary, 1644; John, 1645; Jonas, 1647; 
Jonas again, 1648; Joseph, 1651; Joshua, 1653; Jona- 
than, 1655; and David, 1657, was freeman 1653, and 
died 1674. Two Johns, at Reading, one died 1691, and 
the other died 1695, and we infer that one, but which 
is doubtful, was his son. 

Nathaniel Eaton, of Cambridge, brother of Gov. 
Theophilus, was horn about 1609, freeman 1638, the 
first head of Harvard College, but not dignified with 
title of President; on censure by the government fled to 
Virginia, and family went home, and died there. His 
wife with her children, except Benoni, followed him to 
Virginia, in a ship never heard of after. 

Samuel Eaton, of New Haven, brother of the pre- 
ceding, son of Richard, bred at Magdalen College, 
Cambridge, where he had his degree 1624 and 28, came 
to New England, 1637, probably had wife and no child- 
ren, went home after three years, had a living at 
Duckenfield, Co. Chester, near Manchester, until the 
great ejection, and died at Denton, 1665 or 6, aged 68. 

Theophilus Eaton, of New Haven, brother of the 
two preceding, was born at Stony Stratford, in Co. 
Bucks. His father was minister there, and after at 
Coventry. He was deputy-governor of the East land 
or Baltic company in London, and by King James em- 
ployed as his agent at the Court of Denmark. He had 
wife and child at London, and he married for second 
wife, Ann, widow of David Yale, daughter of Thomas 
Morton, Bishop of Chester, who had kindness for the 
Puritans. The family seat was in that shire, and the 
Governor in his will devises the estate at Great Bud- 
worth, in the same County. He came in 1637 to Boston, 



and after went with his fellow passenger Davenport to 
found the settlement of New Haven, in 1639 was made 
Governor, and so, by annual choice was continued until 
his death 1658, aged 67. His will names three children 
only, Theophilus, Mary and Hannah, but mentions his 
wife, her son Thomas Yale, and son-in-law Edward 
Hopkins, late Governor of Connecticut, then in London. 
Samuel, born in London 1630, probably came with his 
father 1637, was the son of Theophilus also. The widow 
went home and died 1659. The son Theophilus, and 
unmarried daughter Hannah went with the mother. 
Theophilus, jr., lived at Dublin; but Hannah married 
1659, at London, William Jones, who next year came 
to New Haven. 

Thomas Eaton, of Reading, had Joseph, 1652. 

Thomas Eaton, of Haverhill, married at Andover, 
1659, Uniee Singletary of Salisbury; freeman 1666; was 
killed by the Indians, 1698. 

Thomas Eaton, of Dedham, freeman 1681.

from Staple in Kent, embarked at Sandwich, with wife 
Martha, three children, and one servant, had Daniel, 
1639; and Mary, 1643; removed to Reading; was free- 
man 1653, had John; died 1673. He had daughter 
Martha, and his will mentions wife Martha, eldest son 
John, Daniel, daughter Mary, and two son-in-laws. The 
widow died 1681. William, freeman 1691, probably his 
son also. 

An Abigail Eaton, aged 35, with Mary and Thomas, 
children, came 1635, in the "Elizabeth and Ann," follow- 
ing the husband and father, to us unknown.

where his daugher Mehitable was baptized 1654; but the 
list of freemen 1665 calls him Roxbury. Next year 
among freemen from Boston, is Edm. Eddington, which 
I judge to be the same. He had daughters Mary, 
Sarah, Mehitable and Rebecca.

find his subscription by a mark, he was not, probably, 
as Farmer though, of the family of Sir Richard Edge- 
comb, of Mount Edgecomb, in Devonshire. Yet he 
may have been a dependent of that house. He re- 
moved to Saco, about 1660. In Southgate, page 25, wc

a family name, after rejection of Edlin, was in reality

Robert Edwards, of Concord, came from London, 
in the "Hopewell," Captain Babb, in 1635, aged 22, or 
he may be the same who seven days earlier than his 
entry for Babb's ship, is, at the London custom house, 
certified to have taken the oath of allegiance, being aged 
27, and to pass to Virginia. Possibly only one man so 
named was in London. He had wife Christian at Con-

EELLS, ELLS, EELS or EALES:— John Eells, of 
Dorchester, freeman 1634, had Samuel, 1640; removed 
perhaps to Hingham first, but in 1645, to Newbury, there 
called "beehive maker," died 1653, aged 78. 

Richard Eells, of Boston, died 1639, probably with- 
out wife or child. His will, the first in first volume of 
records, names brother John in England, and refers to 
three brothers and a sister as residuary legatees. But 
it has been argued with much plausibility, that the tes- 
tators name was Hills.

1674; Ruth, 1677; and Sarah, 1679. He married 1680, 
Lydia, widow of Arthur Cole, removed to Marlborough, 
after having Margaret, 1681; there had several more; 
but as William; Zechary ; Abraham; James, 1685; Jacob, 
Mercy, Lydia, and Esther, named in the will, as well as 
Zerubabel, Ruth, Sarah and Margaret, seem too many 
for the second wife, for whose promise of another also 
provision is made, one must suppose, that two or three 
beside those recorded at Cambridge were born of first 
wife at some other town. Probably this name is now 
Eager.

ELIOT, or ELLIOT and ELLIOTT:— Andrew Eliot, 
of Beverly, came from Somersetshire, it is said, but no 
date is known, had only son Andrew, born 1651 in 
England; was representative 1690-2. He was of the 
juries, says tradition, which tried the witches, and had 
great mental affliction on that account the residue of his 
life.

1653; and Abigail, 1659. He was made deacon 1653, 
and died 1677. 

Tacob Eliot, of Boston, elder brother of Rev. John, 
came probably with him in the "Lion," 1631, freeman 
1632 deacon 1640, which is quite observable, as he was 
disarmed two and a half years before, as one of the pes- 
tilent heretics that supported Wheelwright and Mrs. 
Hutchinson in their "opinions and revelations ; and 
died 1651, leaving widow Margery, who died 1661. His 
children were Jacob, baptized 1632, John, 1634; Hannah,

settled in his office of teacher, with Thomas Welde, who 
was made pastor July preceding. He married Ann

1687, had Hannah, 1633; John, 1636; Joseph, 1638; 
Samuel 1641; Aaron, 1644; and Benjamin, 1647. Ever 
honorable will be the name of Eliot for the philanthropic 
labor of forty years in spreading among our aborigines 
the sentiments and in some degree the doctrines of his 
religion. He died 1690. 

John Eliot, of Watertown, 1633, by wife Margaret, 
had Elizabeth, 1634; John, 1636; Ann, 1638; Samuel, 
1640; Martha, 1641; and Sarah, 1643; sold his estate 
in 1646, and removed probably to Stamford, 1650, where 
wife Margaret died 1658. 

John Eliot, of Amesbury, took oath of a legiance, 
1677. 

Joseph Eliot, of New London, 1667, removed to 
Stonington, had, perhaps, Henry. 

Philip Eliot, of Roxbury, brother of the apostle, 
came probably early in 1635, in the "Hopewell," with 
his wife Elizabeth, aged 30, children Mary, 13; Eliza- 
beth, 8; Sarah, 6 ; and Philip, 2- All were from Nazing, 
the seat of the family. He was freeman 1636; deacon;

jecture that another daughter was born on this side of 
the ocean. 

Richard Eliot, of Beverly, died 1664. 

Richard Eliot, of New London, 1662, transient. 

Robert Eliot, of Casco, 1670, of Scarborough, 1685, 
representative, lived at Portsmouth, and was in 1716, 
eldest of the council of New Hampshire. He was 
father of Humphrey, I think, of Jane; probably of 
Elizabeth. 

Thomas Eliot, of Boston, a carpenter, by wife Han- 
nah, had Mary, 1686. 

William Eliot, of Ipswich, 1634, came in the "Mary 
and John," that year, having taken the oaths of allegi- 
ance and supremacy; was from Salisbury, in Wiltshire, 
was drowned next year at Cape Ann, in the wreck of
