PREFACE. 



SOME explanatory introduction to so copious a work, as the 
following, will naturally be required ; but it may be short. 

In 1829 was published, by John Farmer, a Genealogical 
Register oi the first settlers of New England. Beside the five 
classes of persons prominent, as Governors, Deputy-Governors, 
Assistants, ministers in all the Colonies, and representatives in 
that of Massachusetts, down to 1692, it embraced graduates of 
Harvard College to 1662, tnembers of the Ancient and Honor 
able Artillery Company, as also freemen admitted in Massa 
chusetts, alone, to this latter date, with many early inhabitants 
of other parts of New England and Long Island from 1620 to 
1675. Extensive as was the plan of that volume, the author 
had in contemplation, as explained in his preface, calling it " an 
introduction to a biographical and genealogical dictionary," a 
more ambitious work, that should comprehend sketches of indi 
viduals known in the annals of New England, and " a con 
tinuation of eminent persons to the present time." Much too 
vast a project that appeared to me ; and the fixing of an abso 
lute limit, like 1692 (the era of arrival of the new charter), for 
admission of any family stocks, seemed more judicious. I sup 
pose nineteen twentieths of the people of these New England 
colonies in 1775 were descendants of those found here in 1692, 
and probably seven eighths of them were offspring of the settlers 
before 1642. 

My scope is wider than that of Farmer, of course, as it 
includes every settler, without regard to his rank, or wealth, 
since we often find, in the second or third generation, descend 
ants of the most humble (thank God we are all equal before the 



VI PREFACE. 

law) filling honorable stations and performing important ser 
vices. But far more narrow is my plan than his projected 
dictionary, because, in a grandson of the first settler, it excludes 
every other incident after his birth. Space for another than is 
here given, would have demanded six volumes, while ten 
volumes would have been needed for a fifth generation ; and 
since we now count eight, nine, or even ten generations of off 
spring from not a few of the earlier planters on our shores, fifty 
volumes, each as ponderous as the present, might be filled with 
details, whereof one tenth would seem ridiculous, one quarter 
worthless, and one half wholly uninteresting. 

That New England was first occupied by a civilized people 
in so short a period before the great civil war broke out in our 
mother country, though half a century and more after its ele 
mentary principles began to ferment, especially in Parliament, 
and almost in every parish of the kingdom, was a very fortunate 
event, if it may not be thought a providential arrangement for 
the happiness of mankind. Even if our views be restricted to 
the lineal origin of those people here, when the long protracted 
impolicy of Great Britain drove our fathers into open hostility 
and forced them to become a nation in 1776, in that century 
and a half from its colonization, a purer Anglo Saxon race 
would be seen on this side of the ocean than on the other. 
Within forty years a vast influx of Irish, with not a few thou 
sand Scotch and Germans has spread over this new country, 
but certainly more than four fifths of our people still count their 
progenitors among the ante-revolutionary colonists. From long 
and careful research I have judged the proportion of the whole 
number living here in 1775, that deduce their origin from the 
kingdom of England, i. e. the Southern part of Great Britain, 
excluding also the principality of Wales, to exceed ninety-eight 
in a hundred. Every county, from Northumberland to Corn 
wall, Kent to Cumberland, sent its contribution of emigrants, 
and the sparse population of the narrow shire of Rutland had 
more than one offshoot in New England. But, during that 
interval, great was the diversity of circumstances between the 
old and the new country so far as the increase of their respective 
numbers by incoming of strangers was affected. In 1660 the 
restoration of Charles II. in 1685 the expulsion of the two

hundred thousand Protestants from France, the desired invasion 
of William and Mary in 1689, and the settlement of the House 
of Hanover in 1714, each brought from the continent an in 
fusion upon the original stock, the aggregate of which may not 
have been less than five or six per cent, of that into which it 
was ingrafted. Yet hardly more than three in a thousand, for 
instance, of Scottish ancestry, almost wholly the migration of 
the heroic defenders of Londonderry, that came, as one hundred 
and twenty families, in 1718 and 19, could be found in 1775 
among dwellers on our soil ; a smaller number of the glorious 
Huguenot exiles above thirty years longer had been resident 
here, and may have been happy enough by natural increase 
(though I doubt it) to equal the later band. If these be also 
counted three in a thousand, much fewer, though earlier still, 
must be the Dutch that crept in from New York, chiefly to 
Connecticut, so that none can believe they reach two in a thou 
sand, while something less must be the ratio of Irish. Ger 
many, Italy, Sweden, Spain, Africa, and all the rest of the 
world, together, did not outnumber the Scotch, or the French 
singly. A more homogeneous stock cannot be seen, I think, in 
any so extensive a region, at any time, since that when the ark 
of Noah discharged its passengers on Mount Ararat, except in 
the few centuries elapsing before the confusion of Babel. 
What honorable ancestry the body of New England population 
may assert, has often been proclaimed in glowing language ; 
but the words of William Stoughton, in his Election sermon, 
1668, express the sentiment with no less happiness than brevity : 

" GOD SIFTED A WHOLE NATION THAT HE MIGHT SEND CHOICE GRAIN 
INTO THE WILDERNESS." 

By an instinct of our nature, we all love to learn the places 
of our birth, and the chief circumstances in the lives of our 
progenitors. More liberal than that is the sentiment by which 
our curious spirit desires knowledge of the same concomitants 
in the case of great benefactors of mankind; and the hope of 
ascertaining to a reasonable extent the early history of John 
Harvard was certainly one of the chief inducements of my visit 
to England early in 1842. I would have gladly given five 
hundred dollars to get five lines about him in any relation, pri 
vate or public. Favored as I was, in this wish, by the counte-

nance and aid of His Excellency, E. Everett, then our minister 
at London, no trace could be found, except in his signature to 
the rules on taking his degrees at the University, when he is titled 
of Middlesex. Perhaps out of such research sprang my resolu 
tion to prosecute the genealogical pursuits of John Farmer. 

In fulfilment of this great undertaking more than fifteen years 
are already bestowed, and near two years longer may be neces 
sary. Yet the rule imposed, of admitting upon these pages 
only the dates of birth and marriage, and names of children, of 
a child born on our side of the ocean to a settler whose tent 
was pitched here before May 1692, is severely adhered to, with 
the exception only of so distinguished a man as Cotton Mather ; 
and even this variety may seem forced upon me by Farmer, 
who had received him to the copious honors of marriage and 
family. Yet, in many cases, will be named great grandchildren 
of first comers, and even in a very few, another generation, 
making a fifth. Explanation of this apparent deviation from 
my own law is easy. When Gov. Bradford and Gov. Winthrop 
came here, each brought a son, or sons, and the same is seen of 
Gov. Dudley and numberless others. Now each child must be 
rated as an emigrant no less than its father, so that John Brad 
ford, John and Adam Winthrop, and Samuel Dudley are 
equally entitled as their parents to have their grandchildren 
entered in these pages ; but William and Joseph Bradford, and 
Joseph Dudley, sons of the Govs. born on our side of the 
water, shall not have grandchildren in their respective lines. 

My apparatus for this work will sometimes be found incom 
plete, yet to a great extent, the public records of Colonies, 
Counties, and towns, where accessible, have been examined by 
myself or friends. Of the first ten folio volumes of our Suffolk 
registry of deeds I had an abstract always lying near me, and 
these embraced near one third of all the names of New Eng 
land and more than half those in Massachusetts Colony ; in 
deed for very many years, after the emigration from Europe 
ceased, only two other counties, Essex and Middlesex had been 
constituted. It will be recollected, that large parts of Ply 
mouth, New Hampshire, and Maine were occupied by those 
who removed from Massachusetts, as was almost the whole of 
Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Haven colonies. But 



PREFACE. IX 

modern labors of distinguished antiquaries furnish us almost in 
full their early records ; and more than nine tenths of the names 
in these separate communities, I think, must have been acquired 
for this work. But even in my native city of Boston three or 
four in a thousand may have escaped me, yet probably in the 
second or third ages from its foundation. 

For the time of births, marriages, or deaths in each family I 
have labored assiduously to be correct, in hundreds of cases 
finding wrong dates given, and commonly without hesitation 
supplying the true. Where baptism is fixed, by a decent record, 
weeks, and even months before the date of birth, no fear of 
injuring the town clerk s credit can restrain belief in his mistake. 
But the copious source of vexatidh is the variety growing out of 
the Old and New Styles. In many thousand instances, I have 
turned to the perpetual almanac, to be sure that the day of 
baptism was truly, or not, recorded for Sunday, since the rite 
could, in the first century of New England, be performed only 
on that day. By this many printed errors may be corrected. 
As children are often seen to be baptized in January or Febru 
ary of the same year, by the ancient legal reckoning, that gives 
the parents marriage in April or May, several weeks before, in 
our modern reckoning of the months, instead of so many months 
after, it is easy enough to put that right by calling those winter 
months not the eleventh and twelfth of the old year, as the stat 
ute absurdity required. Uniformly my chronology begins the 
year with 1 January ; but to produce harmony between dates 
for the month of March is sometimes very difficult. A few 
town officers began to change the numerals for the year with 
the opening of the month, daring to ask, why the first month 
of 1679 should allow 24 of its 31 days to be drilled under 
old 1678, while the perverse will of the rulers in fatherland 
postponed the new-year s day until the 25th ; and some records 
may be found, where the year ended in December ; but this 
monstrous innovation did not begin before 1700, and the start 
ling truth made irregular progress up to 1752, when Lord 
Macclesfield enlightened the legislature, and Chesterfield charmed 
it into consistency. 

No apology would be necessary for filling room with enumer 
ation of contributions from many friends other than such as are 



X PREFACE. 

open to all in printed volumes ; but much of what is now 
within every one s reach had been furnished in MS. to me, and 
still more is from the same hands, in many cases, given first to 
the light on my pages. Our town histories are crowding for 
ward, and sometimes in less compact space than might be 
wished. Windsor, though its History is large, has not equalled 
ancient Woodbury in bulk, yet seems to contain all, with three 
fold of the interest, that might have contented us in the other. 
The point of research may occupy long time, and be expressed 
at last in brief phrase, so that no comparison can be made 
between the result in different parts of the same field of battle 
from taking only the numbers engaged in each. One initial 
letter in this dictionary requrfed a year and a quarter for its 
complete preparation, more than three months were given to 
each of several names, like Hall or Williams, and the progress 
of a page has often demanded a week. It seemed my duty to 
expose every error in our genealogy that has got imbedded in 
any reputable book ; and the suspicion of any such may lead 
to a long train of inquiries before the refutation can be reached. 
If my success has been less than my ambition, it has not been 
owing to lack of industry, or to hurried operation. Printing of 
the first volume began in Dec. 1858, and was prosecuted with 
out interruption of a day to this time ; while for the next 
volume the careful amanuensis has ready for the compositor 
two hundred pages, a part of which will be given to the press 
toi-morrow. For the access of new information that reaches us 
almost every month, a constant watch is kept ; and life and 
health being continued, my contract with the community may 
be decently discharged in the autumn of 1861. 

A very extensive catalogue of gentlemen, that might be 
graced by one of more than half a dozen ladies, could here be 
supplied, were it useful to mention the smaller as well as the 
greater contributors to these sheets. To Goodwin, Bond, Harris, 
father and son, Kingsley, Abbot, Day, Shattuck, Lunt, and 
Kilbourne, of the respectable file who have passed out of 
active service, it would not be easy to state the respective pro 
portions of indebtedness ; nor could I specify the ratio of 
benefit derived in my pages from benevolence of the living 
Babson, Boltwood, Brayton, Budington, Clapp, Day, Edwards,

Felt, Field, Herrick, Hoadley, Jackson, Judd, Kelly, King, Kel 
logg, Lincoln, Locke, Otis, Paige, Patterson, Riker, Sargent, 
Sewall, ShurtlefT, R. D. Smith of Guilford, Staples, Vinton, 
Wentworth, Whitmore, Willard, Wyman, and twice as many 
more. Not one of the living or dead could complain of my dec 
laration, that from the distinguished antiquary of Northampton 
the acquisition exceeds that of any other ten contributors. 
Early in 1846 I had solicited the benefit of uniting his name 
with mine in producing these volumes ; but while he shrank 
from the responsibility of such unbroken labor, I can offer 
several hundred pages of letters to vouch for his sympathy, and 
encourage my perseverance. 

19 APRIL, 1860. 



ABBREVIATIONS. 



BY the number of more or less imperfect words, that can be not much less than 
three hundred thousand in these volumes, very great saving of space was expected. 
Caution was given me, in the Genealog. Reg. XII. 362, against the woful disfiguring 
that would follow, if the specimen, offered by the publishers to attract subscribers, 
were to be taken for a sample. As most of these curtailments were common however 
in similar works, I dared to adhere to the plan, which has not, perhaps, repelled a 
dozen patrons ; and even enlarged my list by addition of one that would occur about 
two thousand times. The word freeman, or freemen, may be seen, in its new shape, 
frecm. without offence, I hope, to the taste of ariy subscriber. Familiar to all readers 
must be the short form given to our names of the months, nine in twelve, only May, 
June, and July having their whole beauty ; and yet of these nine words the recurrence 
would probably show the mutilations on my pages to be fifteen or twenty thousand. 
Titles are always permitted even in other books to appear in brief, as Gov. or Esq. 
and when rep. may stand for representative, most who turn over a dictionary of this 
sort will approve the economy. It may happen that, by the accident of the printer s 
type, or my own carelessness, some word may be abbreviated that had better been 
printed in full, yet I submit, that the page will be seldom disfigured by such liberty, 
and probably the reader would not change more than once in five hundred examples. 
Confusion will not be caused so often as that, I hope ; but if a pause be necessary, we 
all feel the same thing in turning to an English dictionary for definition of words 
only. Nobody reads continuously from page to page, even in the affluent vocabulary 
of Johnson ; and when a sincere desire to verify a genealogy, or ascertain a special 
relationship, is felt, the time will not be grudgingly reckoned, if a sentence be not 
printed out in every word, but with one third or more of those words curtailed. In 
the following list every word thus abbrev. may not be found, because the shortening 
may by a judicious reader be referred to a class comprising many, as the adverbial 
terminations, ly, Uy, wanting after easi. and honora. ; or the perfect tense or parti 
ciples of verbs, ed ; or in substantives, er and ent. ; or in either part of speech, ensu, 
mak. preced. and tak. Avithout ing or en. For many having different meanings, as ch. 
for child, or children, or church ; d. for death, died, or daughter ; gr. for grand, great, 
grant, or graduate ; mo. for mother or month, the one intended may be trusted to the 
student s sagacity. 

But occasions of error in names of men or women I have scrupulously avoided,, so 
that only one surname can be seen in my pages to be abbrev. and but a single name 
of bapt. Eliz. can hardly be mistaken, nor will the lamentation be loud, when a man s 
name so distinguished as that of the first Gov. of Mass, is spelled Winth. Geographi 
cal designations are forever meeting our eyes in briefer form than the legal one ; and 
he has poor supply of current letters that requires to be told what shires in Eng. arc 
meant by Bucks, Herts, or Notts.

only five are nam. in his will, 1646, pro. 8 June 1647, where appear

certainly one is good, if not two beyond the devisees in the will, as 
Henry, Thomas, Jonathan, in some reports call. William. The in-

ALBOROW, ALBOROUGH, ALBRO, ALDBURY, ALBROE, or ALSBER- 
RIE, I JOHN, Portsmouth, R. I. 1655, was an Assist, 1671, and one of the 
counc. appoint, by K. James II. for his Gov. Andros, 1687, as Hutch. I. 
354 gives the list. Gladly would we learn more of so promin. a man, 
ancest. of the Rev. John A. Albro, D. D. of Cambridge, and speak with 
confid. if rec. would permit. Very reasona. may be the conject. that he 
came, as a youth of 14 yrs. under charge of William Freeborne, in the 
Francis from Ipswich, 1634, to Boston. Freeborne was, we kn. of Bos 
ton, until the sad dissens. a. Mrs. Hutchinson, 1637, when he withdrew 
in comp. of so many others with Gov. Coddington to purchase R. I. 
What presumption may be drawn, from the mural tablet to Alborough in 
the ch. of Stratford on Avon, whither the admir. of Shakespear annual, 
resort, that this R. I. fam. came from Warwicksh. will be various, deter- 
min. by differ, jurors. Alborow s d. Susanna m. 3 Jan. 1694, John An

ALCOCK, FRANCIS, Newbury, came in the Bevis 1638, aged 2G, in 
the employm. of Richard Dummer, as the Eng. custom ho. rec. tells ; 
but that is the sole authority for call, him of Newbury, nor is any more 
kn. of him. * GEORGE, Roxbury, came in the fleet with Gov. Winth. 
1G30, with his w. a sis. of Rev. Thomas Hooker, but leav. only s. at

Bef. the gather, of ch. at R. he was deac. at Dorchester, and his w. d.

and after, as well as deac. for Roxbury ch. He went home to bring his 
s. John, and at the same or foil, visit got sec. w. Eliz. by wh. he had 
Samuel, b. ] 6 Apr. 1637, H. C. 1659 ; and at his d. a. 30 Dec. 1640, 
the ch. rec. says he " left a good savor behind him, the poor of the ch. 
much bewailing his loss." Of his will, made ten days bef. an abstr. may 
be read in Geneal. Reg. II. 104. His wid. in Apr. foil. m. Henry Ding-

1666, s. of John of the same, made a lieut. 1677, and a magistr. under 
authority of Mass. 1678, and capt. 1681 ; by creation of William and 
Mary, in the new Chart, under adv. of Increase Mather, 1691 made a 
counsellor, but was next yr. left out, on the popul. revulsion against his 
patron. Hutch. II. 15, says only, that he was of Maine, yet strange is it, 
that both he, and Douglas, I. 486 should falsely spell his name, Alcot, and 
stranger still, that Mather should have put that error into his charter, 
prob. for the sake of euphony. JOHN, Kittery, adm. freem. of Mass. 
1652, prob. rem. to York, had to div. his est. 1675, two s. Joseph, and 
Job, five ds. viz. Mary Twisden, w. of Samuel, perhaps, or of John the 
sec. Eliz. Banks w. prob. of Richard ; Hannah Snell, w. perhaps, of 
George ; Sarah Gittings, whose h. is a stranger to me ; and Lydia Dum 
mer, perhaps a maiden, sole ch. of ano. d. Yet conject. may be wearied 
in finding the connect. Joseph, adm. at the same time, was prob. his s. 
but Samuel may not have been. JOHN, Roxbury, s. of George of the 
same, b. in Eng. early in 1627, H. C. 1646, was a physician, but after 
leav. coll. went to Hartford, prob. on call of his uncle Hooker, to teach a

ALDBURG, JOHN, a youth of 14, came in the Francis, 1634, under 
William Freebome. See Alborow. 

ALDEN, * DAVID, Duxbury, s. of John of the Mayflower, was rep. 1G89 
and 90, after the overthrow of Andros ; but Farmer was, I doubt, under 
mistake in making him Assist. 1690 ; and Winsor follow, him. His 
w. was Mary, d. of Constant Southworth, by wh. he had Benjamin, Sam 
uel, and Alice, j * JOHN, Plymouth, passeng. in the first ship 1 620, 
had not been assoc. at Leyden with the pilgrims, but was hired at South 
ampton as a cooper, with right of staying on this side or return, m. 1623, 
Priscilla, d. of William Mullins, wh. as well as his w. d. the first Feb. 
after land. We kn. only eight ch. by their names, John, b. perhaps 
1623; Joseph, David, Jonathan, Eliz., Sarah, Ruth, and Mary; but 
in Bradford we find h. and w. liv. in 1650, "and have eleven ch. and 
their eldest d. hath five ch." Of these in May 1627, at the div. of cat 
tle, only John and Eliz. are named, so that the other nine were b. later, 
but their dates of b. are not heard. He liv. most of his days at Dux- 
bury, was rep. 1641, yet had been chos. an Assist, for the Col. 1633, to 
Gov. Winslow, and serv. 42 yrs. in that office, to every Gov. after Car 
ver. Idly would tradit. attempt to magnify his merit, as the first to jump 
upon the rock at Plymouth land, when he was not of the party in the 
shallop that discov. the harbor, but contin. on board ship at Cape Cod. 
He was the last male surv. of the signers of the compact in that harbor, 
Nov. 1620, and d. 12 Sept. 1687, aged 84, or, by other acco. 88. Of the 
ds. Eliz. m. 18 Dec. 1644, William Peabody and d. 3 May 1717, aged 
94, says her gr. stone ; Sarah m. Alexander Standish; Ruth m. 12 May 
(Winsor has it 3 Feb.) 1657, John Bass of Braintree; and Mary m. 
Thomas Delano. JOHN, Duxbury, eldest s. of the preced. rem. to Bos 
ton, where the rec. says, perhaps erroneous, by w. Eliz. he had Mary, b. 
17 Dec. 1659, for that date may be of d. of his w. since 1 Apr. foil, 
he m. (I suppose as sec. w.) Eliz. d. of William Phillips, and wid. of 
Abiel Everill, had John, b. 20 Nov. foil. d. soon; Eliz. 9 May 1662, d. 
at 2 mos.; John, again, 12 Mar. 1663 ; William, 16 Mar. 1664, d. soon; 
Eliz. again, 9 Mar. 1665 ; William, again, 5 Mar. 1666, d. soon; Zecha- 
riah, 8 Mar. 1667, d. soon; William, again, 10 Sept. 1669; Nathaniel, 
1670; Zechariah, again, 18 Feb. 1673, II. C. 1692; Nathan, 17 Oct. 
1677; and Sarah, 27 Sept. 1681. In the witchcraft madness of 1692, 
he suffer, many weeks imprisonm. as Calef and Hutch. II. 48, relate, yet 
recover, from the popul. persecut. and d. 14 Mar. 1702. His d. Eliz. m. 
John Walley, possib. gr.s. of Rev. Thomas ; and next 30 Apr. 1702, 
Simon Willard, but this union is not clear to me. As his s. John had w. 
Eliz. it is diffic. from the Boston rec. to tell wh. John and Eliz. had the 
latest b. It might as easily be infer, that the witchcraft belong, to the

s. as the f., and indeed Thayer in his Geneal. makes the younger the suf 
fer, in wh. he is foil, by Winsor, contrary to the general import of Calef 
and Hutchinson. With them I concur, for the s. was only 29 yrs. old, 
and more venerable age is usually found liable to assaults by the great 
adversary for such cases. JONATHAN, Duxbury, br. of the preced. m. 
10 Dec. 1672, Abigail, d. of Andrew Hallet, had Andrew, Jonathan, 
John and Benjamin ; but no dates are found for either. The two former, 
it is said, went to Lebanon. He was bur. 17 Feb. 1698, aged 70, says 
fam. tradit. and his wid. d. 17 Aug. 1725, aged 81. JOSEPH, Duxbury, 
br. prob. elder, of the preced. m. Mary, d. of Moses Simmons, rem. 
early to Bridge water, had Isaac; Joseph, b. 1668 ; John, and, perhaps Eliz. 
and Mary; and d. 8 Feb. 1697. The ds. were m. one bef. and one 
after. From the passeng. in the Mayflower are fill, with details of de 
scend. 28 pages of Thayer s Geneal. and in Collect, of Epitaphs, by Rev. 
Timothy Alden, compris. in 5 vols. is seen large proof of filial gratitude. 
Of this name eight had been gr. at Harv. in 1834, and two at Yale.

Symmes. In his Ecclesiast. Ann. I. 379, Mr. Felt makes her accomp. 
Allen, as his w. but this seems highly improb. as the w. would naturally 
have unit, with our ch. soon after her h. if not at the same time, whereas 
no fern. mem. of the name of Allen was rec. into the Boston ch. for a 
long time after he had been sett, at C. exc. a maiden Eliz. 24 Mar. 1639

ington, p. 247, where begins the invalu. catalogue, that " John Harvard 
and Ann Harvard his w." join, that ch. 6 Nov. 1637. . From the Hist, 
of Harv. Coll. it is kn. that Allen was admor. on est. of Harvard, and 
paid the moneys bequeath, so that it can hardly be doubt, that the judg 
ment of Felt was at fault, especially as, a few pages earlier, the diligent 
author had noted, that Harvard s wid. was " supposed tohave m. Rev. 
Thomas Allen." His ch. were Mary, b. 31 Jan. bapt. ^K I<eb. 1640 ; 
Sarah, 8 Aug. 1641, d. in Apr. foil. ; Eliz. 17 Sept. 1643, d. in few days ; 
and Mercy, 13 Aug. 1646, d. in few days. The rec. of bapt. for many 
yrs. after 1640, is lost. In 1651 he went home, and serv. at the same 
altar of St. Edmunds, in his native city, where he had officiat. bef. 
com. hither, when worried out of his diocese, 1636, by Bp. Wren ; and 
again he suffer, in the gen. ejectm. of 1662 ; yet was with much affection 
sustain, by the worshipp. at a dissent, chapel, as long as such was tolerat. 
For a sec. w. he had Joanna, wid. of maj.-gen. Robert Sedgwick, wh.

his successor at D. in our day. His actual serv. however, had been at 
Wrentham, Co. Suff. a. 30 miles N. E. from Ipswich. When I exam, 
the Reg. of the Univ. of Oxford, it did not occur to me, that the age giv.

adopt Miss Caulkins s opin. that, intermed. betw. Salem and New London, 
he was of Saybrook. Tho. honor, with the office of constable at Norwich 
1669, he went back to N. L. and there d. 1683, where part of his farm

trovers, in the law, as is fairly infer, from Trumbull s Col. Rec. I. 211, 
was made freem. 1652, rep. 1656; and soon after d. as might be con- 
clud. from not seeing his name as rep. in any yr. subseq. nor in the list 
of freem. for that town 1669; yet he may have rem. to Middletown, as 
no list of that sort is found from that place in Trumbull, and one of the 
name there was deac. wh. d. 16 Oct. 1688, having had no ch. but leav. 
wid. Martha, perhaps, wh. had been wid. of Roger Jepson, and d. 1690.

Ann. of Newtown, 335. THOMAS, Stratford, wh. came in the Elizabeth

seph of New Haven, as they came together, and the younger, in 1651, 
inform, the Court, that his br. without nam. him, had d. at S. leav. some 
prop, and no more is kn. It may be, that the f. of these youths was that 
John, rated for a subsidy in 1598, to the same parish and at the same 
time with William Shakespear, nor would it be very extrav. to presume, 
that he, too, went up to London from Stratford on Avon. See my notes 
on Edward Jackson. TIMOTHY, New Haven 1646, mariner.

refer, to the same rec. spells the sufferer s name, as seems, at least, equal, 
likely to be correct, Alsop. But I would gladly see his origin.

his br. John, wh. if we judge by order of names in the rec. of Wrentham, 
was the younger, went home with our scholar. Of this name nine had, 
in 1834, been gr. at Harv. none at Yale, one at Dart, and three at other 
N. E. coll. as Farmer found.

Thomas Shepard, and, next, Hon. Samuel Hayman, and was bur. 20 Aug. 
1717 ; and Joanna Newman ; but much uncertain, hangs over these two 
last ds. i. e. what Lynde was h. of the former, what Newman of the latter, 
tho. much inquiry has been bestow. He had also Henry, who d. in Eng. 
and left his prop, to the f. _JOHN, Ipswich 1665, whose inv. was render. 
3 May 1701, had been a soldier in the Province serv. Possib. but not 
prob. he may have been one of the unhappy prisoners of the battle at 
Worcester, 3 Sept. 1651 (that "crowning mercy" to Oliver Cromwell), 
of wh. 272 were ship, in Nov. after, in the John and Sarah, from London, 
to be sold here, arr. in May foil, at Boston. Beside this John, Alister, 
David, and William A. were victims of the same cruel policy in the same 
ship. Part of the prisoners of Dunbar, import, in the former yr. had been 
well receiv. as Cotton wrote to Cromwell, and sold for 6, 7, or 8 yrs. ser 
vitude. Most of these unfortunate young men d. of scurvy, or of broken 
hearts ; and some of the exiles ran away, perhaps with good-will of their 
purchasers, so that not one in fifty of these soldiers that foil. Charles II. 
in the fatal fields of Dunbar and Worcester, and were sold in Boston, prob. 
five hundred in num. liv. to have fams. in our country. JOHN, Salem 
1673, a shipmaster, had been, perhaps, of Boston, 1655, and adm. with 
w. Mary, of the sec. ch. 1672. RICHARD, New Haven, took o. of fidel. 
7 Apr. 1657. ROBERT, in Mass. 6 June 1637 fin. for contempt 50, 
wh. was soon remit, may have been only a transient visitor. See Col. 
Rec. I. 198, 245. WILLIAM, New Haven, took o. of fidel. 7 Apr. 1657, 
but neither of him. nor of Richard, who may have been his br. is any more 
seen. WILLIAM, Watertown, of wh. Dr. Bond found only, that he sat on 
a coroner s jury 26 July 1669. Gr. of this name up to 1828 Farmer 
found two at Harv. two at Dart, one at Yale, and eleven at the other coll. 
in N. E. and N. J. chiefly, I presume from the latter.

See the invalu. " Cambridge Ch. gathering," by Newell with appx. of 
Mitchell, and Harris s Epit. A person, " well skill, in mathemat." of this 
name, as is ment. in Haz. I. 591, and Belkn. I. 57, is suppos. to be this 
Cambridge man. See Col. Rec. III. 329 and 361. SAMUEL, eldest s. of 
the preced. was min. of Milford, ord. 15 Nov. 1685, m. Abigail, d. of Gov. 
Robert Treat, had Samuel, and prob. others, and d. 24 Jan. 1738. The 
name has a final s. in the Conn. rec. but the Rev. owner reject, the addit. ; 
the ch. and town rec. of Cambridge admit the letter, tho. the indisput. 
authority of the Coll. catal. deny, and discrimin. yet in his Hecatompolis 
(ch. 7 of the Magn. I.) Mather sanctifies the intrusion. WILLIAM, Cam 
bridge, mariner, the freem. of 4 Mar. 1634, by w. Mary, wh. d. 19 Jan. 
1640, had Samuel and perhaps other ch. and d. bef. 1655. WILLIAM, 
Ipswich, was sch.master there, and in sev. other towns, may not have been 
br. of Rev. Samuel, and d. 19 July 1683. But in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 19, 
the extr. from the interleav. Almanac of Sewall, noticing this event is 
remark, diverse in the name from the careful writer on the Ipswich gr. 
sch. in G. R. VI. 69, wh. makes Thomas Andrews succeed famous Chee- 
ver in the sch. 1 Aug. 1660, and teach. 23 yrs. and d. 10 July 1683. 
Vehemently do I suspect, that one or the other is mistaken, that only one 
man is intend, and the date of d. 10 or 19, easily reconcil. Of this name, 
without s. in 1834, as Farmer mark, three had been gr. at Harv. three 
at Yale, and one at some other N. E. coll. 

ANDREWS, ANDROWS (or ANDROS, sometimes), ABRAHAM, Farming- 
ton, s. perhaps of Francis, rem. to Waterbury, had eight ch. Rebecca, b. 
1672; Mary, 1674; Hannah, 1678; Abraham, 1680; Sarah, bapt. 9 
Mar. 1684; Rachel, 1686; John, 1688 ; and Thomas, 1699. ABRAHAM, 
Waterbury, s. of John of Farmington, m. Sarah, d. of Robert Porter x>f 
Farmington, had John, bapt. 9 Mar. 1684; Abraham, 17, certain, not, 
as said somewhere, 27 July 1687; at Farmington ch. both; beside 
Mary, Benjamin, and Robert. He d. 3 May 1693, leav. as appears 
by Pro. rec. these five ch. and a wid. Between that Pro. rec. at 
Hartford, and the town rec. of F. as well as of W. disagreem. may 
be found ; at least it was hard to guess, with confidence, after large in 
quiry, which Abraham was s. of Francis, wh. of John ; and Hinman, wh. 
rather darkens the confus. saves hims. from anxiety by acknowledg. only 
one Abraham, while he informs us, that sometimes the name is giv. An- 
dros, or Andrus. His report of Francis gives him no Abraham, and tho.

Benjamin, and John, again, tw. 19 May 1G89; and Thomas, 1690; be 
side Daniel, bapt. 10 Sept. 1G93 ; Samuel, 24 Nov. 1695 ; perhaps more. 
*DANIEL, Salem, sch.master, in 1672, was, Dr. Bond thinks, s. of Thomas 
of Watertown, liv. in the pt. call, the vill. now Danvers, for wh. in the 
June Sess. 1689, the first yr. of liberty recov. from Andros, he was rep. 
and in 1692 was charg. with the preposter. crime of witchcraft, perhaps 
bee. he kn. more than some of his neighb. but was releas. early in the yr. 
foil, when reason prevail, over the influence of Cotton Mather. DANIEL, 
Farmingtoiij s. of John, had Daniel, b. 9 Mar. bapt. 20 July 1673 ; Mary, 
9, bapt. 13 Dec. 1674; Joseph, b. 10 Aug. 1676; Thomas, 1678; John, 
T6~ June 1680; Martha, 17, bapt. 23 July 1682; Hannah, bapt. 18 Jan. 
1685; Paul, 3 Jan. 1687; Stephen, 1 Dec. 1689, prob. d. soon; and 
Stephen, again, 28 Sept. 1690. EDAVARD, .Newport 1639, perhaps 
rem. to Saco, at least one of the name was freem. there 1653, ace. 
Folsom, 123, of the planta. I suppose he means, for he does not appear in 
the Col. list, d. 1668. EDWARD, Hartford 1655, sw. freem. 1657, had 
Edward, wh. d. unm. and Solomon ; beside ds. Mary, and Sarah, of wh. 
the last m. Henry Treat of H. and next David Forbes. EDWARD, War 
wick, among freem. there 1655, but no w. or ch. is heard of; may possib. 
be he who was early of Newport. FRANCIS, Hartford 1639, had John, 
bapt. 27 Sept. 1646 ; and Thomas, 2 Jan. 1648 ; rem. to Fairfield, there 
d. 1662, or 3, his will being of 6 June of the former, pro. 5 Mar. of the

Rebecca, wh. bee. sec. w. 7 July 1678, of Samuel Benedict of Norwalk;

Quite uncert. is it, whether his s. Abraham were the man, wh. d. 1693, or 
he wh. had ch. 1699. * HENRY, Taunton, an orig. purchas. rep. 1639

ASHTON, HENRY, Boston 1673, from Cp^ LancasterjJEng. was, I sup

p. 82 makes him have for first w. a d. of Andrew Alger, but after rem. 
says, he m. Mary, d. of Nicholas Edgcomb, wid. of George Page. Yet 
the same w. is ascrib. to John Austin, and all that we can be sure of, is 
that nothing is sure a. the matter. THOMAS, Providence 1639, perhaps 
br. of James. Both are call, proprs. and that no more can be told of 
either, is rather remarka.

No mortificat. was felt prob. by him for non-arriv. of this fifth monarchy, 
as I suppose he did not even live to see the success of the rival dynasty. 
Cromwell alone was powerful eno. to retard such event, and the whole 
body of the people of Eng. witli unanim. that was never bef. or since 
equal, in that kingd. by calls for the restor. of the ho. of Stuart postpon. 
the success of such enthusiasm. Of his fain, my report will be less 
exact than should be expect, yet that is not for failure of diligent inquiry.

him so highly, when he remarks, that by some " the manner of his d. was 
noted as a judgrat." Of what sin this judgmt. was thus noted, we may 
hardly venture to guess, tho. when mortals direct the bolts of eternal jus 
tice, their aim is commonly unanimous. Strange, it seems to me, is the 
indefiniteness of our knowl. of so promin. a man ; for even the name of 
his w. is not seen. Yet ten or eleven ch. are kn. at least by name, and 
one or more there may have been of unkn. names ; one or more b. in

(perhaps untrustworthy in this name) says, ha d Samuel, b. 3 Mar. 1688. 
Easy eno. may be the conject. as to error, that the writer in the clerk s 
office took Mary as w. of Joshua, bee. he saw such connex. of parents 
with ch. few yrs. bef. but equal, easy is the other suppos. that Rebecca 
was not the true name of the w. but carelessly giv. bee. the ch. had that 
name. To this latter suggest, is perhaps to be add. that it is somewhere 
writ, that Joshua m. Mary, wid. of Samuel Smith, and d. of Samuel Mav

that Mary Wood, very often used for Atwood, wh. m. 11 Dec. 1661, John 
Holmes, wh. bee. min. of Duxbury, were his d. wh. is very unlikely, for

sis. Esther Coster he gave most of his est. that was a good one, by will of 
20 Sept. 1669, being "bound on a voyage to Boston." Yet he got back 
safe, and liv. sev. yrs. He was the sufferer, I judge, in 1676 and 7, on 
the voyage from Boston to N. II. cast away on a desolate isl. in the little 
vessel with Ephraim How, near Cape Sable, relation of wh. in Mather s 
best manner, may be read in Magn. VI. appropr. call. Thaurnaturgus, c. 1. 
Of his inv. of 1638 the date is 26 Feb. 1678. The larger part his sis. 
had, to br. John (prob. then in Eng.) the beq. was only 20, and John s

nobody informs us, at \vh. of the Univ. he was bred, or of wh. parish he 
had taught. Hubbard, 200, may not be taken for authority as to his 
coining in the Angel Gabriel (if so he meant to be understood), for he was 
arr. at Boston the day bef. the Angel Gabriel weighed her anchor below 
Bristol. Thacher, as in the rec. bef. cited, was by our Gen. Ct. made 
admor. and in his inv. as well as the appoint, the dec. is named Joseph. 
One wh. reads with appreciative skill the authentic Narrative will disre 
gard the acco. in the Magnalia, nor wonder, why the most heedless of au 
thors call, him John. ROBERT, Dedham, perhaps s. of William of the

Samuel, a d. of Gov. Thomas Hinckley, and d. 15 Dec. 1708. In the 
Coll. Catal. it may be seen, that the first two of this name are not rank, 
by seniority, or by date % of ordin. (both being min. John of Truro, the 
first there, ord. Nov. 1711, and Joseph, also the first of Norton, ord. 26 
Oct. 1714), or by alphabet, priority, wh. may, no doubt, be explain, by 
regard to the rules that of old regulat. the assignment of places.

brot. from Eng. childr. b. from 1612 to 1620 (when the f. would have 
been betw. 1 and 8 yrs. old), this testim. relieves the geneal. A sec. w.

with that of his br. John. JOB, Westerly, a miller, prob. br. of the pre

his runaway match with the d. of his master, their kind recept. by the Ind. 
in the wilderness, discov. of his d. and her h. some four yrs. after by the 
bride s f. and forgiveness, liberality &c. than as it relates his d. 19 July

protraction of days, tho. unlikely, might be correct, yet the f. d. from 
twenty to forty yrs. too early, and his wid. m. bef. 1700 Erasmus Babbit. 
Indeed his d. is marked 1685, and his wid. nam. Mary, and eldest s. James,

Coventry, wh. had been mayor of that borough. They had liv. in Dublin, 
and, on the outbreak of the Irish rebellion, she was sent over here, says 
tradit. and her h. foil, soon ; but her br. Humphrey P. and other relat. 
perish, in the massacre. Some community of origin may be, perhaps, 
traced to this tradit. and to that of Michael ; yet the flight from the re 
bellion would seem more natural in that early day to be direct, to Eng. 
Felt says, William was freem. after 1643 ; but the evidence is not seen. 
In 1834 Farmer found the gr. of this name to be seven at Yale, four at

BALCH, BENJAMIN, Beverly, eldest s. of the first John of the same, m. 
Sarah, cl. of the first Thomas Gardner, had Samuel, b. 1651 ; John, 1654 ; 
Joseph, a soldier of " the flower of Essex " under Capt. Lathrop, k. by the 
Ind. 18 Sept. 1675, at Bloody brook ; and Freeborn, 9 Aug. 1660; and 
he d. a. 1706, many yrs. after his w. as we infer from her not being ment. 
in his will of 18 Jan. 1689. Being call. 77 yrs. old, it has been hastily 
assum. that he was the first b. of Mass, as the late Dr. Bentley stoutly 
assert, the same honor for John Massey, and brot. forward, as his best 
evid. the cradle, in wh. he was rocked. But Felt seems to prove, that 
Roger, s. of Roger Conant, was b. at Salem bef. Massey or Balch. FREE- 
BORN, Salem, youngest s. of the first John, disappears a. 1658, prob. going 
for Eng. that yr. and not heard of after. JOHN, Salem, one of the earliest 
sett, of Mass, from the vicin. of Bridgewater, Co. Somerset, came, it is 
said with suffic. probabil. in 16^3, with Robert Gorges, to make estab- 
lishm. at Cape Ann, or Nantasket, and on encouragem. from White the 
min. of Dorchester, a most earnest promoter of the colony, rem. with 
Roger Conant to plant at Salem, on Beverly side, then call. Bass riv. 
He req. adin. as freern. 19 Oct. 1630, and took the o. 18 May foil. By 
his w. Margaret, one of the earliest mem. of the ch. of Higginson, was b. 
Benjamin, a. 1629, John, and Freeborn; but he had sec. w. Agnes, or 
Annis, nam. with those s. in his will of 15 May, pro. 28 June 1648. 
JOHN, Beverly, s. of the preced. in. Mary, d. of Roger Conant, had Mary, 
wh. d. young ; and it is riot seen, that he had other issue. He was drown. 
16 June 1662, and his wid. m. William Dodge. Good memoir of this 
fam. is print, in Geneal. Reg. IX. 233. Farmer notes, that in 1829 five 
of this name had been gr. at Harv. and one at Dart.

that he was the same, as this fam. name was very abund. especial, in 
Conn, whose peop. spread much upon L. I. HENRY, Portsmouth 1631,

have been a stranger to this blood. That s. of the first John wh. bore

rep. 1660 to his d. 23 July 1665. Perhaps he was one of the first sett.

1726, tho. in Geneal. Reg. VI. 371 this honor is ascrib. to his f. wh.

of 6 Dec. 1669, but few days bef. he d. names w. Hannah and only seven 
ch. so that it may be conclud. that Benjamin and Sarah, not ment. had 
d. young. Of the inv. of any cooper in the early yrs. I have common, 
found a good result, and such was his ; yet more import, are the ques 
tions of his b. and of his coming. Differing in opin. from a disting. 
descend. (Hinman in Geneal. Reg. VII. 376,) because he calls him "a 
Scotch gent, from Ayr. as early as 1653," I ought to offer reasons. H. 
contrary to the common error, that is of assum. too early a yr. for the 
arr. of an ancest. on our shore, takes a date that would afford currency

to a suspicion of Lis being one of the melancholy exiles from the triumph 
of the civ. war. Surely he was here pretty early in 1651, prob. a yr. 
or two bef. as otherwise he would hardly have gain. Hollard s d. so early. 
A Scot we may easily believe he was, one of the founders, we kn. of the 
Charit. Soc. of that nation, wh. with the ever active spirit of nationality 
begun in Boston 1657, then compos, of twenty-seven mem. of whose names 
his is tenth. No sufferer in the cause of Charles Stuart can be supposed 
so early to have acquir. social position and property to contribute to " the 
box." See Drake s Boston, 455. A cooper was more likely, two hundred 
yrs. ago, to have been bred at Glasgow than its neighboring little vill. of 
Ayr; and one of those tradesmen, whose motto was " let Glasgow flourish," 
would hardly be call. gent, of A. Often the name appears Bellantine, 
sometimes Ballentyre.

passengers by the Globe from London for Virginia, 1635, and the names 
of William Brown, and Richard Wells in the same list are seen, both, 
also, found at Salisbury. But those surnames are so frequent on both 
sides of the ocean, that the argument must not be pressed too far. Some 
persons might, at that time, think it easy to go from one part of America 
to another; but most of those for Virginia were not puritans, and all wh. 
would come to New Eng. especially from London, easily gained direct, 
instead of circuitous passage. Of this name, includ. those spelt without e,

comp. k. by the Ind. Sept. 1675. He had two ws. Grace (thot. to be mo. 
of all those ch.), and Hannah, wid. of Timothy Hawkins, m. 4 Dec. 1653 ; 
was constable 1658, selectman 1668, and d. 30 Oct. 1676. His will made 
four days bef. pro. 19 Dec. foil, provides for w. for the seven ch. remain, 
after loss of Peter, and for gr.ch. Eliz. Barren. ELLIS, Watertown, s. of 
the preced. m. Hannah, d. of Timothy Hawkins, and Bond gives the date 
wh. I have taken for m. of her mo. with the f. of this h. tho. he may be 
right, and possib. mo. and d. f. and s. were m. on one day, yet it seems 
less prob. He had Ellis, b. 22 Apr. 1655 ; Hannah, 6 Mar. 1658 ; Eliz. 
14 Apr. 1660, d. soon; Sarah, 4 Nov. 1662 ; and perhaps Eliz. again ; 
rem. to Groton, there had Grace, 29 July 1665; Mehitable, 22 June 
1668 ; Timothy, 18 Apr. 1673 ; Dorothy, 6 Mar. 1675, perhaps d. young ; 
and Abigail, 14 Nov. 1676. At Lancaster he made his will 31 Dec. 
1711, pro. 7 Oct. foil. wh. teaches us the names of hs. for six of his ds. 
Abigail Houghton, Mehitable Parker, Hannah Cady, w. of James, Eliz. 
-Philbrick, w. of Ephraim, Sarah Taylor, and Grace Stevens. He had 
prefer. L. to G. after the equal destruction of both. From Groton he was 
driv. in Philip s war, and reappears at W. with w. Lydia. ELLIS, Lan- 



BAR 127 

caster, s. of the preced. m. 27 May 1G79, Mary, d. of Rev. John Sher 
man, and how venerable rec. may distort a name is shown here, where 
the elk. must certif. that Eliz. Barren jr. m. Mary Sherman ; and he had 
sec. w. Lydia, unless Bond have confus. him with his f. as he suspect. 
JOHN, Groton, s. of Ellis the first, had John, b. 4 Apr.. 1665 ; Moses, 26 
Mar. 1669 ; Ellis, 4 June 1672 ; and Eliz. 28 Sept. 1677 ; but the name 
of his w. or date of his d. is not seen. MOSES, br. of the preced. may 
have liv. at Woburn, at least he m. Mary, eldest d. of Isaac Learned of 
that place, but prob. d. early. TIMOTHY, Watertown, a weaver, s. of Ellis 
the sec. m. 10 Mar. 1698, Rachel, d. of Samuel Jennison of the same, had 
Joseph, bapt. 30 Oct. foil. ; Timothy, 1 July 1700 ; Peter, b. 26 July 
1702 ; Samuel, Oct. 1704, d. next mo.; and Hannah, 6 Aug. 1709 ; and 
his wid. Rachel m. John King. Of Oliver, H. C. 1788, it is said by 
William Winthrop, in his interlcav. catal. that he d. 1809, a physician in 
the Isle of Man. 

BARROWS, or BARROW, JAMES, Dover, was tax. 1670, says Mr. Quint, 
but he tells no more. JOHN, Plymouth, had w. Deborah, s. Robert, Bena- 
jah, Joshua, and Ebenezer, beside two ds. when he d. 12 Jan. 1692. 
ROBERT, Plymouth, perhaps br. of the preced. m. 28 Nov. 1666, Ruth, 
d. of George Bonum, had Eliezur, b. 15 Sept. 1669, wh. d. soon ; and no 
more is kn. of the f. ROBERT, Plymouth, s. of John, m. Lydia Dunham, 
had Robert, b. 1689; Thankful, 1692; Elisha, 1695; Thomas, 1697; 
and Lydia, 1699. 

BARRY, JOHN, New London 1659, may have been only transient, as 
he is seen only as a witness to deed of Id. 

BARSHAM, JOHN, Portsmouth, or as Bond thinks, of Exeter, eldest s. 
of William, by w. Mehitable had Annabel, b. 31 May 1670; Mary, 26 
Feb. 1672 ; Dorothy, 2 Feb. 1674 ; Sarah, 11 Aug. prob. 1675 ; and 
William, 25 Apr. 1678. JOSHUA, Watertown, br. of the preced. outliv. 
his f. but in Bond s opin. was never m. NATHANIEL, Watertown, br. of 
the preced. m. 13 Mar. 1679, Eliz. eldest d. of the first William Bond, 
was town elk. selectman sev. yrs. and a lieut. in the wretched expedit. of 
Phips against Quebec, 1690, after a capt. had no ch. and d. 2 Aug. 1716. 
His wid. d. 23 Dec. 1729. PHILIP, Deerfield, k. by the Ind. at Bloody 
brook, with Capt. Lathrop, 18 Sept. 1675, left w. and perhaps ch. WIL 
LIAM, Watertown, came, it is thot. 1630, freem. 9 Mar. 1637, by w. Am- 
miel, or Annabel, had John, b. 8 Dec. 1 635, H. C. 1 658 ; Hannah, 7 Jan. 
1638; William; Joshua, 15 Mar. 1641 ; Susanna, 28 Jan. 1642; Na 
thaniel, 1644; Sarah ; Mary, 24 June 1648 ; Rebecca, 12 Dec. 1657; 
and Eliz. 29 July 1659. He d. 13 July 1684, in his will of 23 Aug. 
preced. with codic. of 15 Apr. foil, not nam. w. leads us to infer, that she 
was d. No doubt he was a man of good public spirit, selectman 1653,

and fill, other office of import. Hannah m. 19 Dec. 1656, John Spring 
jr. ; Susanna, and Sarah m. and had ch. but their hs. are not mark. ; 
Mary m. 7 May 1675, deac. John Bright, and next, 12 Dec. 1700, 
Hananiah Parker of Reading ; Rebecca m. 14 May 1683, Edward Win- 
ship of Cambridge ; and Eliz. m. 5 July 1694, Adam Eve of Boston ; 
yet to so odd a name Bond puts a quere for place, while my suspicion 
attaches more to the person s spell.

As he had no ch. his will of 23 June 1674 proves his est. good, as was

N. E. coll. in 1834.

freem. 1682. See Allen, Hist, of C. 169. JOHN, Haddam, perhaps br. 
of James of the same, was of Stamford 1669, had John, b. 1678; and 
Solomon 1680. JOHN, New London 1677, had bapt. there John, 4 May 
1679; Solomon, 1 Aug. 1680; and Sarah, 27 Aug. 1682 ; but, no more 
being ment. of him, I think he may be the same as the preced. easily rem. 
from town to town. * JOSEPH, Hingliam, s. of Clement, b. in Eng. m. Jan. 
1659, Esther Hilliard, perhaps d. of Anthony of the same, had Joseph, 
Caleb, Hannah, Joshua, Bathsheba, Clement, Eleazer, and perhaps others. 
He was freem. 1672. JOSEPH, Hingham, s. of the preced. m. 3 Jan. 
1684, Mary, d. of the first Samuel Lincoln. ROBERT, Wethersfield 1 640, 
rem. to Stamford, there d. 11 June 1675, leav. s. John ; d. Mary Ambler,

July 1676. SAMUEL, Hingham, youngest s. of Clement the first, in. 1666,

BATSON, *JoiiN, Kennebunk, perhaps s. of Stephen, m. 1660, Eliz. 
Saunders, perhaps d. of John of Wells, was rep. at the Gen. Assemb. at 
York 1682 and 4. ROBERT, Marshfield, m. 13 July 1676, Ann Winter,

and d. Margery, rem. to Cape Porpus, or Kennebunk 1653, was made 
freem. that yr. Folsom, 33, 124. From his will of 8 Mar. 1674, it is 
learn, that he had s. John ; and d. Eliz. Ashley, perhaps w. of William ; 
d. Margery Young, perhaps w. of Rowland ; and d. Mary Brookhouse, of 
whose h. I search in vain for indicat. beside gr.ch. John Trott, perhaps s.

JBATT, * CHRISTOPHER, Newbury, tanner, came from the city of Salis 
bury, Co. Wilts, in the Bevis, emb. at Southampton, 1638, aged 37, with 
w. Ann, 32; sis. Dorothy, 20 ; and five ch. under 10 yrs. freem. 13 Mar. 
1639, rem. to Salisbury, of wh. he was rep. 1640, 1, 3, and 50, rem. to 
Boston, and there was casu. k. 10 Aug. 1661 by a s. firing at a mark in 
the orchard. His wid. made her will 14 Mar. 1679, call. hers. 76. We 
kn. not the names of those ch. he brot. from Eng. but one was prob. 
Thomas, for he carr. on the business of his f. at B. Eight or more were 
b. in this country, for Coffin ment. thirteen, yet gives dates of only three, 
John, b. at S. 4 Mar. 1641; Paul, and Barnabas, tw. 18 Feb. 1643. 
Others (part b. in Eng.) were Christopher, Ann, Samuel, Jane, Sarah, 
Abigail, Timothy, Ebenezer, and Eliz. This last d. 6 July 1652, perhaps 
young; Ann m. 12 June 1657, Edmund Angier ; Jane m. 3 Apr. 1661, 
Dr. Peter Toppan, and may therefore be supposed to have been b. on our 
side of the water, while the other side must be thot. birthplace of Ann, 
as she was sec. w. of Angier. Christopher was of Dover in 1662 ; Paul 
was a glazier, and Timothy a tailor, both freem. 1 673, at Boston, and both 
prob. certain one of them interest, in the tannery ; and of Samuel it is 
said that he was a min. in Eng. and infer, that he never came back to 
this Id. if he was, as is prob. b. here. NICHOLAS, Newbury, perhaps br. 
of the preced. came in the James from Southampton, with w. Lucy, arr. 
at Boston 3 June 1635, is call, in the ship s clearance, "of the Devizes, 
linen weaver," had Sarah, b. 12 June 1640, and two more ds. He d. 6 
Dec. 1677 ; and his wid. Lucy d. 26 Jan. 1679. 

BATTELLE, or BATTLE, JOHN, Dedham, eldest s. of Thomas, m, 18 
Nov. 1678, Hannah Holbrook, had Hannah, b. 26 July 1680 ; Mary, 12 
Mar. 1684 ; John, 17 Apr. 1689 ; Ebenezer, 2 Jan. 1692 ; and d. 30 Sept.

Onion, perhaps d. of Robert, had Martha, b. 13 Mar. foil. ; Jonathan, 3 
Jan. 1693 ; Sarah, 20 Oct. 1698 ; and Abigail, 11 Dec. 1699. ROBERT, 
Boston, d. 23 Dec. 1658, perhaps was only trans, visit, and if not, I can 
tell no more, but that in Dearborn s book, call. Boston Notions, p. 44, he 
is call, freem. 1657, when no such name appears, nor even any bapt. name 
of Robert in that yr. THOMAS, Dedham 1642, m. 5 Sept. 1648, Mary, 
d. of Joshua Fisher, had Mary, b. 6 bapt. 12 May 1650 ; John, 1, bapt. 
3 July 1653 ; Sarah, b. 1654; Jonathan, 24 July 1658 ; and Martha, 19 
Aug. bapt. 9 Sept. 1660, d. at 14 yrs. He was freem. 1654, in 1664 liv. 
at Sudbury, but of D. again in 1674. His w. d. 7 Aug. 1691, and he d. 8 
Feb. 1706, call. " the aged." In the will of their gr.f. Fisher, of wh. Battle 
was an overseer, most of the ch. are ment. Mary m. 20 Mar. 1677, John 
Bryant ; and Sarah m. 23 Oct. 1679, Silas Titus. Very improb. seems to 
me the recent tradit. that he came to N. E. from France ; and Cothren

enlarges the extrav. of it by transfer of the circumst. imagin. to his s. 
John. In the will of John Luson, a neighb. of Battelle, John and Mary 
B. were kind, rememb. but he gave the larger part of his prop, (having 
no near relative this side of Eng.) to their f. spelt by the testator, Battely.

Salem, s. of the preccd. m. Martha, d. of Benjamin Pickman the first. 
JOSEPH, and TIMOTHY of Northampton 1668, as print, in Geneal. Reg.

NICHOLAS, Lynn, freem. 14 Dec. 1638, had gr. of 60 acres. Lewis, 103, 
tells no more of him.

1660, Thomas Buttolph; and this is true, and the other rec. no doubt a 
mistake. NICHOLAS, Boston, prob. s. of the preced. was gunner at the

w. of Platt, but whether of Abel, or James, or John, or Jonas, 

or Jonathan, or Samuel, my inquiries do not ascertain. JAMES, Salisbury, 
s. of John the sec. was freem. 1673, m. 17 Sept. 1672, Mary, d. of George 
Carr of the same, had Mary, b. 5 July 1673, and Isaac, 22 Oct. 1681 ; 
rem. to Salem vill. now Danvers, there was a preach, but neither Bent- 
ley s Hist, nor Felt s Ann. of Salem (the best places to seek for such in- 
format.) tells us whether he was ever ord. yet it is safely infer, that he 
was not, for the latter writer instr. us, that in Apr. 1680, a commit, was 
chos. to obtain ano. preach, instead of him ; see II. 589. We kn. also, 
that he was succeed, by the unfortun. George Burrows. By Sprague, 
Ann. of the Amer. Pulpit, 1. 186, Bailey s d. is mark, for 1707, and Coffin,

Milford, br. of the preced. is altogether barren of any informat. in fam. 
tradit. but of JOHN, Milford, the other br. of the preced. that source of 
intellig. is more bountif. He was a man of import., had two ws. but wh. 
was first may need investigat. One, perhaps the earlier, had been by 
name of Hannah Hawley m. to John Ufford, ot Offit, and at her desire 
divorc. By her he had sev. ch. and by Abigail, d. of Richard Holling- 
worth, perhaps the sec. had prob. no ch. was capt. in one of the expedit.

freem. of Mass. 7 Dec. 1636, yet in what ch. he was mem. is unkn. and

Conn. rep. 1G45, but in Ilinman, 113, little is told of him. At Yale in 
1828 seven gr. of this name are seen. 

BEARSE, BEARCE, or BEIRCE, AUSTIN, or AUGUSTINE, Barnstable, 
came in the Confidence 1638, aged 20, from Southampton, and join. 
Lothrop s ch. in Apr. 1643, had Mary, b. 1640; Martha, 1642; both

Esther, 2 Oct. 1653; Lydia, late in Sept. 1655; Rebecca, 26 Sept. 
1657 ; and James, late in July 1660. Of this sec. s. as no more is heard, 
it is suppos. that he d. young ; but for the nine ds. we know only three 
that m., Sarah, in Aug. 1667 to John Ilamlin; Abigail, 12 Apr. 1670

Abigail, b. Aug. 1664; Samuel, 1 Sept. 1666; William, 2 Mar. 1669; 
Daniel, 3 Apr. 1671; John, 1673; Benjamin, Dec. 1677; and Mary,

1661. His will of 28 Sept 1660, names w. and four s., Daniel, John, 
Joseph, and Samuel ; gives to ds. m. 10 ea. and a large sum to be dis- 
trib. by the w. to other ch. prob. younger, and unm. of wh. were certain. 
William, and Thomas. Of the grs. at Yale, in 1828, were seven 
Beardsleys.

the stock, if not even the sole of N. E. b. Had the rec. of that French 
ch. been preserv. we should less often be driv. to conject. In the print, 
list of taxab. inhab. of B. 1695, publ. by Dearborn in his Boston Notions, 
the French names are frequent, spel. strangely ; yet among them may 
our Huguenot leather-dress, be misrepresent, as John Bashoon. He bot.

of births has the monstrous assert, of these three, as b. at once ; and 
Manasseh,-b. 8, bapt. 12 Oct. 1645. HENRY, Dover, came in the Bless 
ing, 1635, aged 18, emb. at London late in July, as I saw in the rec. of 
London custom ho. for that yr. so far more prob. than the tradit. giv. by 
Coffin in Geneal. Reg. XL 256, of his com. the same yr. in the Angel 
Gabriel, wreck, at Pemaquid the mid. of Aug. The Blessing did not 
reach Boston bef. Oct. Part of the same story is, that he was from 
Hertfordsh. wh. is so near to London, whence sixteen ships brought pas- 
seng. to Boston, that we can never believe he would have gone to the 
other side of the kingdom, for the voyage of the Angel Gabriel, begin, 
at Bristol, 22 June. He m. Ann Frost, had Joshua ; Thomas, b. a. 
1657 ; Caleb ; and Henry ; beside d. Mary, wh. m. a White. Coffin adds, 
that he liv. to be 110 ; and how gr. this would appear to be exag. we 
may better judge, when the time of his d. is ascertain. MANASSEH, 
Boston, s. of Alexander, was freem. 1672, and this is all I kn. of him. 
THOMAS, Dover, prob. s. of Henry, in Coffin s rep., m. Mary Frost, had

BECKFORD, or BICKFORD (more common in early days), GEORGE, 
had, in 1666, w. Christian, and serv. Hugh Hancock, as Coffin tells in 
Geneal. Reg. VI. 243 ; but of what settlem. he was, we must trust to 
conject. for Dover. JOHN, Dover 1647, in 1669 was of that part call. 
Oyster riv. now Durham, freem. of Mass. 1671, had s. John, and Joseph. 
JOHN, Dover, s. of the preced. by w. Temperance, d. of William Furber 
of the same, had Thomas, b. 1660; Hannah, 5 Nov. 1665; and Benja

read in the Magn. VII. appx. art. 20 ; or Farmer s Belkn. I. 140.

London, Miss Caulkins says, and often call. Becket ; while at Branford 
it appears Bickatt. STEPHEN, Norwalk 1654, rem. soon, but came back

BEDELL, BEDLE, or BEEDLE, ROBERT, New London 1648, had, per

BEDFORD, NATHAN, Scarborough, was constable 1665, kept the inn

of a story, how he was murder, by the venerab. Joshua Scottow, may be 
read. He left wid. Ann.

closing his " Demonstration of True Love " in this emphatic style : " The 
hand of the Lord cuts him off, not giving him repentance to life, that other 
sons of Belial of his persecuting spirit might be warned, not to put the 
evil day far from them." Without sympathy in the triumph of Gov. 
C. it is grateful to me to remark, that the unbrok. reign of dismal bigotry

harder, hardest, betw. the mild wisdom of Winth. and the tolerant dignity

was chos. min. at Stamford, whither he went on foot, had w. Rebecca, and 
ch. Stephen, Joseph, Ebenezer, Benjamin, beside one, perhaps nara. 
Whiting, that d. early, all ment. in his will. For sec. w. he had Joanna, 
d. of Capt. Thomas Willet, wid. of Rev. Peter Prudden of Milford. His 
will, made 16 Nov. 1694, pro. 12 Mar. foil, instructs us as to these ws. 
and his ch. wh. were all by the first. As early as 1640 he had been 
at Taunton. He preach, near 50 yrs. wrote a Latin epit. on Richard 
Mather (whence a presumpt. arises, that he was from Dorchester), \vh. 
may be read in the Magnalia of the gr.s. cap. 20 of III. or p. 131. 
But the dignity of the subject, the value of the poetry, or even his 
serv. in the ch. was less operative, I suppose, in draw, this compli 
ment to Bishop, than the pun on his name, for he is made, in that 
immortal work, to sign, J. Episcopius. JOHN, Guilford 1639, had w. 
Ann, s. John, and Stephen, and d. bef. 7 Jan. 1661, when his inv. was

Henry, b. in Eng. 1633; and certain. Sarah, wh. d. 17 Jan. 1647. I

Perhaps he liv. some yrs. in Boston, a. 1663 ; andd. there early in 1689, 
and from his will of 10 Jan. in that yr. that gives to w. and to his brs. 
and neph. and nieces, beside others, but no ch. may safely be infer, that 
he left none. Yet he had Hannah, b. 16 Jan. 1659, wh. prob. d. young, 
and the Geneal. Reg. IX. 176, erron. makes him f. of deac. John, wh. 
was his neph. JOHN, Dorchester, sec. s. of James the first, had w. Mary, 
wh. may have borne to him Mary, 26 Apr. 1687 ; John ; and Samuel, 26 
Sept. 1691 ; but of this last nothing is heard, nor of John, except that he 
d. 19 Apr. 1689, very young. By sec. w. Hannah he had Hannah, b. 
8 Sept. 1693; Eliz. 21 Feb. 1696; John, again, 23 Apr. 1698; and 
Josiah, 11 Mar. 1700. No full report of the m. of either w. is within 
reach, nor can dates of b. of all of the ch. be found. Yet he was 
town elk., deac. and d. 2 Mar. 1718. JOHN, Middletown, m. 1673, 
Sarah, d. of Richard Hall of the same, had Mercy, b. 16 Nov. of that yr. ;

alleg. 26 Apr. 1678. JOHN, Boston, joiner, had w. Sarah, and s. Rich 
ard, as from his will, 8 Oct. 1692, is learn. I presume he had not many 
yrs. liv. here, for he speaks of prop, in Eng. as well as in N. E. wh. he 
gives wholly to w. and makes her extrix. so that the s. was prob. young. 
JOSEPH, Dorchester, youngest s. of James the first, by w. Mehitable had

In 1644 he was at Dorchester, but this seems slight ground for the tradit. 
that he was br. of William the sec. He d. 1695, therefore he was, 
I think, too young to be omit, in numb, of s. of the f. tho. William had 
br. Richard, b. four yrs. it is said, later than hims. We may well think 
that Richard d. young. || WILLIAM, Dorchester, wh. came 1630, in the

William, wh. had been press. 1675, for a soldier in Philip s war, and 
enroll, in Moseley s comp. and prob. d. of the hardships of the Narra- 
gansett serv. are nam. in his will of 23 June 1703. From this we learn 
all the surnames of h s of his ds. Ann, m. 18 Dec. 1676, Thomas Gil 
bert, the only one of wh. I learn the date or bapt. name ; however 
strange such ignorance may appear. The others are call. Mary Willis, 
Experience Carver, and Mehitable Briggs. He was rep. for M. sev. 
yrs. His wid. Hannah, wh. certain, was not mo. of the earliest ch. d. 4 
Aug. 1729, aged 90. At the N. E. coll. in 1835, Farmer found thirteen 
gr. of this name, eleven of them at Harv. 

BLAKEMAN, ADAM (as I saw that he wrote at the University, as he 

usual, did after, tho. some of his descend, would have it Blackman), b. in 

Staffordsh. was bred at Christ s Coll. Oxford, being matricul. 28 May 

1617, in his 19th yr. preach, in the Cos. of Leicester and Derby bef. he

bee. the first min. of Stratford. His ch. exc. Benjamin, were prob. all b. in 

Eng. and he d. 7 Sept. 1665 ; and the wid. Jane d. 1673. Lechford, 43, 

miscalls him Black well. In the Magn. III. 94, c. 7, Mather exults at 

his chance for a pun ; Trumbull tells something; and the ch. rec. of Rox- 

bury, a little; but we rejoice in his will of 16 Mar. 1665, as copious in 

informat. One d. and five s. Mary, James, Samuel, Benjamin, John, 

and Deliverance are ment. in it ; and from later report the last was a 

wild youth, wh. gave his mo. much disquiet. His Latin bks. he would 

give to Joshua Atwater, s. of his d. Mary, if he were educ. for the min. 

tho. first intend, for s. Benjamin, wh. first chose ano. way of life ; yet, 

in the end, the gr.s. refus. the legacy, and Benjamin took to learn. 

* BENJAMIN, Maiden, youngest s. of the preced. after gr. at coll. 1663, 

was preach, at M. and there ord. 1674 ; m. 1 Apr. 1675 (not Sarah, as 

strangely is seen in the rec. of M., but) Rebecca, d. of Joshua Scottow,

prob. William, was tenant under liberal lease from archbp. Sandys, and

tenant of Scrooby manor, the possessor of that very resid. of the 
Cardinal, and the s. therein worship. God accord, to the simple forms of 
the chief protestants of Protestantism. After very honora. serv. with 
Davison, seer, of Queen Eliz. he partook in the fall of that statesman, 
the conseq. of the Queen s heartless deception and treachery ; and 
abandon. 1587, political life. Devot. hims. for many yrs. to relig. he 
was the first prorriin. layman wh. reject, conform, to the ceremon. of the 
ch. of Eng. He was in the employ m. of the crown, however, as post 
master bef. Apr. 1594, at Scrooby, above a doz. yrs. after leav. London ; 
there he m. the w. Mary. With his young friend, Bradford, after a doz. 
yrs. to be made Gov. of New Plymouth, and others, he pass. a. 1607 or 
8, into Holland for enjoym. of worship without the many idle forms, on 
wh. King James had set his heart, and was rul. Elder of the ch. at 
Leyden of wh. John Robinson was teach, as he had been prob. at 
Scrooby. His ds. Patience and Fear, came in the Ann, 1623 ; and on 
5 Aug. of next yr. Patience m. Thomas Prence, afterwards the gov. and 
d. 1634; and Fear m. 1626, Isaac Allerton, as his sec. w. and d. 1633.

him, never m. He had early rem. to Duxbury, and there, under the 
same roof with Love, d. 16 Apr. 1643, after one day s illness. His inv. 
has proof in the titles of the books of honora. regard for letters. See 
Geneal. Reg. IV. 174. Bradford s Memoir of him is in Young s Chron. 
of the Pilgr. 461. See, also, Davis s Morton ; Hunter s First Colonists 
of N. E., of wh. the best impres. is in 4 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 52 ; and 
Shurtleff s Recollect, of the Pilgr. in Russell s Guide to Plymouth. It 
may be useful to mark the error of so valua. an auth. as Baylies, in IL 
6, where he gives to our most glorious of the Mayflower s passeng. three 
ch. Lucretia, Mary, and William, and is even so rash as to say, two of 
them were b. in America. Yet if b. on our side of the water, he ought 
to have presum. they could not, from his age, be ch. of the Elder. The 
first was w. others, ch. of Jonathan. WILLIAM, Duxbury, s. of Jonathan, 
was prob. b. at Leyden, went in Aug. 1645, under serg. Nash, as 
part of the forty men to be furnish, by this smallest Col. to repress the 
peril from the Narragansets, and encourage the friendsh. of Uncas [see 
Bradford s Hist. 431-6], and serv. in that exped. 17 days, was count, 
among the freem. in 1643, and prob. went with his f. to New London. 
* WILLIAM, Duxbury, s. of Love, m. 2 Jan. 1673, Lydia, d. of George 
Partridge, and d. 3 Nov. 1723. Whether he had ch. is not kn. but he 
was in good esteem, and was rep. 1675. WRESTLING, Plymouth, 
youngest s. of the gr. Elder, b. prob. at Leyden, in Holland, came with 



B R I 247 

his f. in the Mayflower, d. " a young man unm." bef. his f. says Gov. Brad 
ford, but Caulkins, in Hist, of Norwich, 115, refers to an idle tradit. that 
makes him ancest. of Sir Christopher Brewster of our days. Sir 
Christopher perhaps may descend from a gr.s. of the Elder, and youngest 
s. of Love, wh. rec. this name, prob. sev. yrs. after d. of his uncle. In 
a very agreea. Memoir of the " Life and Time of Elder Brewster, by 
Rev. Ashbel Steele, Phila. 1857, the author too easi. assum. that this s. 
of the great Elder was of Portsmouth 1G29, and built up his case on 
three piles of fictitious paper: The first, a forged deed of 6 Dec. 1629 
(wh. fell on Sunday), of Id. in Portsmouth, that was not so call. bef. 
May 1G53, but always Strawberry Bank, with prob. false grantor and 
witnesses, and writ, in language of one hundred and fifty yrs. later use ; 
next, a fabricat. fam. rec. whereby it is shown, that Wrestling B. was m. 
1630 to E. S. had s. John, b. 20 Jan. 1631, and daur. 3 May 1636, 
nam. Love Lucretia ! ! ! and the w. d. in childbed, thirty-eight yrs. after 
(perhaps the ch. had it liv. would have seem, to require double name, 
and so been bapt. Mephistophiles Beelzebub) ; that E. S. the w. is call, 
d. of Augustine Story, one of the illustrious grantees in the more 
ambitious forgery of the Wheelwright deed of all New Hampsh. from 
the Ind. made also on Sunday in an earlier mo. of the same yr. and little 
more than eight yrs. after Wrestling came over the Atlantic, with his f. ; 
and the third fountain of evidence is from many, near, all spurious, ac 
counts of business transactions, wh. by patient investigat. are found to 
be almost wholly fanciful. In his new Ed. Mr. Steele will, no doubt, 
correct those childish fictions of the last century. WRESTLING, Dux- 
bury, br. of Nathaniel of the same, had, with his br. William, gr. of Ids. 
(in honor of the rever. serv. of their gr.f. dec.) at Swanzey, provid. they 
went there to liv. ; but I presume neither of them accept, the favor, as 
they cont. at D. By w. Mary he had sev. ch. and d. 1 Jan. 1697. He 
was constable in 1680, and serv. on jury in 1682 and 4. Ten of this

Thomas, b. 14 June 1633; Jonathan, 14 June 1635; John; David, 23 
Aug. 1640; and Clement, 1 Jan. 1643. Grievous is our feeling of

imprud. Bef. he d. he had ano. w. Eliz. Of his will, the abstr. is giv.

common name of this man. RICHARD, Taunton, perhaps s. of Clement, 
m. 15 Aug. 1662, Rebecca Hoskins, had William, b. 21 Nov. 1663;

mouth, R. I. younger s. of the first John of the same, had in 1678 w. 
Mary, and no more can I learn a. him. WALTER, Scituate 1643, had 
w. Frances, and d. a. 1684. His will, of that yr. names w. s. John, 
James, Cornelius, and d. Hannah Winslow. WILLIAM, Boston by w. 
Mary had Hannah, b. 28 Aug. 1642, wh. m. 10 Sept, 1657, John Harris. 
Perhaps he rem. to Lyme betw. 1670 and 1680; at least one of this 
name was inhab. there at that period. WILLIAM, Taunton, perhaps br. 
of Jonathan, m. 6 Nov. 1666, Sarah Macumber, perhaps d. of William 
of Marshfield, had William, b. 25 Jan. 1668; Thomas, 9 Sept. 1669 ;

Matthew, 5 Feb. 1677; John, 19 Mar. 1680; and his w. d. next day. 
This name seems common thro, many Cos. in Eng. but chief. Norfolk. 
Five had been gr. at Harv. and fourteen at other N. E. coll. in 1834. 

BRIGHAM, * JOHN, Sudbury, s. of Thomas, rem. to Marlborough, of

a capt. and d. 24 July 1713. * SEBASTIAN, Cambridge 1636, rem. to 
Rowley, was capt, 1644, rep. 1650. Johnson s Hist, of N. E. 193, and 
Gage, in Hist, of Rowley, give this spel. of the name, wh. Farmer had 
under Bridgham. The bapt. name must be influential in prevent, mis 
take, and the local historian likely to be correct. THOMAS, Cambridge, 
came in the Susan and Ellen, 1635, aged 32, freem. 18 Apr. 1636, was 
not of Watertown, as Bond thot., did not rem. to Sudbury, as Farmer 
had said, by w. Mercy Hurd, m. prob. after com. from Eng. had Thomas,

21 Apr. 1716, wh. was pro. 2 June 1717. Six of this name had been 
gr. at Harv. in 1834, and an equal number in aggreg. at the other 
N. E. coll. 

BRIGHT, FRANCIS, Charlestown, s. of Edward of London, bred at 
Oxford, matric. of New Coll. 18 Feb. 1625, aged 22, and by famous 
John Davenport instr. in divinity, in 1629 came from Rayleigh, in Essex, 
with w. and two eh. to Salem, in the Lion s Whelp, prob. sat down at

He was freem. 6 May 1 635, held in high esteem, deac. and d. 9 Oct. 
1686, aged 84. He had elder br. Thomas, of Ipswich, Eng. wh. in his 
will, of unkn. date, but pro. 1626, ment. this Henry, sis. Eliz. and other 
sis. as minors. That Eliz. wh. was in 1657. wid. Dell of Bow, near 
London, gave in her will to this br. 200, and to each of his 7 ch. 10. 
all wh. was paid here in 1658 and 9. Large pedigree from the time of 
Henry VII. prepar. by Somerby, is giv. by Dr. Bond. This Henry was 
for many yrs. call. jr. because HENRY, a poor man of the same name, 
liv. at W. was always spok. of as senior, as he might well be, without 
our giv. full credit to the rec. of his d. 14 Sept. 1674, aged one hundred 
yrs. and upwards, or ano. rec. says a. 109 yrs. But as the amt. of his inv. 
was only 2, 9, 6, any affinity is highly improb. JOHN, Watertown, s. 
of the wealthy Henry, m. 7 May 1675, Mary, d. of William Barsham,

BRIGHTON, SAMUEL, Boston, by w. Ann had James, bapt. 30 Mar.

or 5, when, by a change in the durat. of studies for the first degr. from 
three yrs. to four, he and sixteen more, if Mather may be believ. Magn. 
IV. 135, felt so much aggriev. as to forego the advantage of longer 
resid. Something different is the version to be seen in the delightful 
Ann. of the Am. Pulpit, I. 256. He preach, a. 1660-65 at Plymouth, 
and went thence to the new town of M. where he was ord. 3 Oct. 1666,

1638, in the Martin, as bef. dep.-gov. Dudley, he swore, in support of a 
nuncup. will of a fellow-passeng. dying on the ocean ; was sett, at the 
Bapt. ch. 1642 after Roger Williams. It has been thot. by some, that 
he was earlier on our side of the water, and that imperfect rec. proves it, 
on p. 14 of the Vol. I. of Col. Rec. of R. I. as to his incorp. in town 
fellowsh. with others at Providence, wh. bears date 20 Aug. without a yr. 
Now the supplying of the numerals for the yr. can admit those wh. the 
transcriber used, 1637, by no means ; for that day was Sunday, when no 
civil compact could have been enter, into, and bef. that day in the former 
yr. the place was kn. as Moshasuck, prob. the sec. use of the designat. of 
the mod. city being in the foil. mo. at the bapt. of the s. of Roger Wil 
liams, Providence, late in Sept. 1638. Earlier than Aug. 1638 his name, 
I suppose, will not be found. He brot. w. Eliz. and s. John, aged a. 8 
yrs. prob. other ch. for we kn. not the b. of any of his five s. The other 
four were James, Jeremiah, Judah, alias Chad, and Daniel. No connex. 
is trac. betw. Chad and Henry, of the oldest proprs. His gr.ch. James

must be error in that very correct work, as we kn. there is, when it 
marks him freem. 1639. This custom ho. date is inconsist. with the

seems impossib. to unravel the whole line and lines. It will be seen, 
that I have giv. at least, a fair sample. Thirty-six of the name had, in

him, I presume, it is, that Sewall, in his Diary, under 30 Oct. 1696, re 
lates, that he had been perfectly dumb for eighteen yrs. and had his speech

had gr. of Id. and preach, there near two yrs. and in 1637 or 8, went to 
Dover, there had much quarrel, and thence to York, and was forced to 
go home at last. Winthrop is large in reprobat. of him, Hubbard is 
strong ; and the crim. proceed, of Cts. under Gorges governm. for adul 
tery and other charges, make it plain that N. E. was not the right place 
for him. ROBERT, Maiden, m. Nov. 1653, Hannah Winter, had Thom

of Quakers. Yet a scruple is felt whether that will of Mar. were 
not a later draft ; if the legal reckon, of the yr. be foil, it must be

the order of success, in age to concur with the arrangem. at pro. office, 
Jehu ; Stephen ; Peter; David ; Moses, Y. C. 1734 ; and Aaron, Y. C. 
1735 ; and more confid. can we presume, that sev. of the ds. Hannah, 
Mary Wheeler, Eliz. Hull, and Jane Sherwood were b. bef. sev. of the s. 
I wish the hs. of the m. ds. could be respectiv. assign. Moses and Aaron 
were minors ; and their brs. Stephen and Peter were several, made 
guardns. Nine of these ch. had ea. 545. and double that sum was sh. 
of the eldest s. The youngest s. Aaron, b. 4 Jan. 1717, was the disting. 
good man, presid. of N. J. coll. f. of the more disting. (but not as a good

was a carpenter, appoint, in 1 633, by the Col. governm. to see to " the

and for that town, not suppos. to belong to Mass, in 1 638, was rep..at 
Hartford; and soon after went to Fairfield, of wh. he was rep. 1641, 5, 
and 6, prob. d. soon after. Four s. Jehu, John, Daniel, and Nathaniel, 
are kn. and perhaps he had not other ch. How easy mistakes occur in , 
read, ancient MS. is well exhibit, in this man s case. Copy from entr. in 
Col. rec. 1630 and 1631, of his name, print, in my list of freem. as 
Appndx. to Winth. II. 361, giv. it John ; and the well-practis. eyes of 
Pulsifer, transcrib. for the Antiq. Soc. of Worcester, and the more 
scrupulous Paige, in the Reg. of N. E. Hist. Genealog. Soc. III. 90 and 
1, were equal, deceiv. and even Felt, wh. had giv. so many yrs. of his 
life to those rec. fell under the same delusion ; while, to immortalize the 
wrong, it is assert, by Trumbull, in Conn. Col. Rec. I. 12. In read, the 
sec. and fourth letters of this bapt. name, not one in a thousand experts 
would be likely to differ from us, as John appears in the reverse pro 
portion to Jehu. Yet from the unusual distinctness of the Roxbury ch. 
rec. wh. I have examin. and the concur, later ones at Springfield and 
elsewhere, all doubt is dispel. Trumbull, in his Index, correct, the error 
of his text ; and the 1853 Ed. of Winthrop s Hist. II. 441, has giv. the 
true name. * JEHU, Fairfield, s. prob. eldest, of the preced. perhaps b.

the reader, as he terms it, an acco. of this tr. and execut. at \vh. latter 
he assist. In the Ann. of Salem, Felt relates, " after he was hung, C. M. 
believ. him to have been justly dealt with, and perceiv. the impression 
wh. his last words and appearance had made to the contra, endeav. to 
convince the peop. that no wrong had been done." One mo. from that 
day, Giles Cory suffer, punishm. on the same preposter. charge as B. 
but by the monstr. old common law requirem. was press, to d. for stand, 
mute under the indictm. This was the last, as well as the first, instance 
of such barbar. inflict. Mather was not, I think, present to witness this 
triumph over the devil in the enforc. silence of his victim by the 
ministers of the law. Had the sheriff invit. his aid, perhaps he would 
have declin. the advantage ; and we can hardly doubt, that the fact of 
the other sufferer being a min. and s. of the coll. in wh. the f. of M. then 
sat as Presid. exclud. all undue feel, of tenderness in many of the 
spectators, especial, in him wh. Calef tells us, rode on a horse to instr. 
the witnesses at the solemn scene. Tardy vindicat. in small degr. of this 
innoc. was made by the governm. on petitn. of his elder s. Charles, 
provis. in 1711, for his heirs. So late as 1774, his Id. at Falmouth,

Hanchet, and d. 19 Oct. 1715. NATHANIEL, Springfield, younger br.

had Nathaniel, b. 18 Jan. 1664; Rebecca, 20 Dec. 1665; David, 20

Feb. 1681. His w. d. 28 Jan. 1712, and he d. 29 Sept. 1720. His 
resid. was in that pt. now Longmeadow. RICHARD, Taunton, one of the

w. or wid. of the younger, or elder Richard, d. 3 June 1711. Baylies, I.

b. 6 Feb. 1643. THOMAS, Salem, m. 18 Nov. 1672, Mary Southwick, 
but whose d. or wid. she was, is unkn. WILLIAM, Charlestown, one ,of 
capt. Moseley s comp. k. 19 Dec. 1675, in the gr. Narraganset fight. 
From the diverse spell, of this man s name, in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 242, 
and Drake s Hist, of Boston, 414, where it is giv. Bourle, some puzzle 
is rais. but whichever be correct, we kn. that Charlestown had but a 
single William on the roster for that campaign, and either form is not 
great pervers. Of this name, Farmer counts at N. E. and Union, and 
N. J. coll. fifteen gr. in 1834. 

BURTON, BONIFACE, Lynn 1630, freem. 6 May 1635, d. 13 June 
1669, "being a hundred and fifteen yrs. old," says John Hull s Diary, 
print, in the Transact, of the Amer. Antiq. Soc. III. 229, yet liable to a 
false construct, of the date. Of course, we doubt, some exaggera. is 
here; and in one of Sewall s interleav. Almanacs, that for 1673, two 
yrs. are deduct, as in Hutch. I. 269. Nearer to contempo. evid. must be 
the Diary, yet his s.-in-law overcame his usual reverence for "father 
Hull," and he would riot (with his habitual fondness for finding cases of 



BURTON. 315 

longev.) have subtract, a week without appar. authority. Had he boldly 
struck off a dozen more yrs. skeptics would agree or would rejoice with 
him. Yet B. was the oldest man, says Lewis, fondly, wh. ever liv. in 
Lynn. This kindly affect, writer, in a generat. nearer to his own, enjoy, 
the finding of a black woman of equal age in the same happy town. 
Well stricken in yrs. at his com. over, must Burton seem, and prob. he 
brot. some fam. or at least had little progeny here ; and careful scrutiny 
proves, in many such instances, that peop. past mid. life, after reach, 
our shores, grew old very fast. BONIFACE, Boston, perhaps s. perhaps 
gr.s. of the preced. d. 1GG7, from whose will, nam. only w. Frances, we 
infer, that he left no ch. and kn. that he gave nothing to the centenary, 
but that his largest bequest was ten shillings to Increase Mather. It is 
possib. that the testator was that very aged Lynn man, and the only one 
of so uncom. name. EDWARD, Charlestown 1633, rem. prob. to Hing-

as one of the ferrymen, from milit. impressm. STEPHEN, Swanzey 
1683, m. 4 Sept. 1684, Eliz. only d. of Gov. Josiah Winslow, and 
strange is it, that we kn. so little of him. Prob. he was s. of Thomas, 
had for first w. Abigail, jd. of Gov. William Brenton of R. I. and 
in 1680 he join, with John Walley, Nathaniel Byfield, and Nathaniel 
Oliver, men of large est. and distinct, in puro.h. the Mount Hope est. seat 
of the gr. Sachem, Philip, from the Col. of Plymouth, assum. as fruit of 
their conq. and sett. Bristol. Next yr. he was made constable at Bos 
ton, with Paul Dudley, Adam Winthrop, Edward Raynsford, and Giles 
Dyer. THOMAS, Hingham 1G40, m. Margaret, d. of John Otis, had 
Hannah, bapt. 30 May 1G41 ; Phebe, 12 May 1644; Ruth, Aug. 1646, 
d. next yr. and Sarah, 13 May 1649 ; but it is said, that his d. Martha 
m. William Brenton, and if so, then she was by a former w. prob. b. in 
Eng. He was one of the gr. disturbers of our political state, as in 
Winth. Hist. II. 262, 302, may be read. Very curious manifesto of our 
Gen. Ct. contain, in the glorious Coll. of Hutch. 212, alludes to him as 
" an old grocer of London," and his perversity is imput. to " his age and 
some other infirmities." This hardly consists with the dignity of a legis 
lature ; and had the docum. been prepar. by the Assist, they might have 
ascrib. his heretical pravity in so factious desire of religious liberty to 
long resid. at Newport after 1639. WILLIAM, Warwick, m. Ann, or 
Hannah, d. of Jolm Wicks, had Susanna, wh. m. 11 Dec. 1684, sec.

Hannah, tw. 11 Jan. 1680; Mary, 2 July 1682; and Joseph, 18 May

Older ch. than Sherebiah were Nathaniel and Samuel, yet neither is nam. 
in the will of the f. made 30 July 1690, bee. " going forth a soldier in the

the preced. d. 3 Apr. 1G73. NATHANIEL, Chelmsford, s. perhaps 
eldest, of Benjamin, frcem. 1G82. SAMUEL, Springfield 1G3G, was k. at 
Saybrook next yr. prob. by tlie Pequots, as minute, relat. in Winth. I. 
198. Very curious is the corncid. seen in Niles, Ind. and Fr. Wars, as 
print. 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VI. 279, that ano. Samuel B. of Groton, a. 
seventy yrs. later, fell into the hds. of the Ind. but far more strange is 
the mistake, in the large Hist, of Boston, 203, of the author s note, mak. 
Niles, with wild anachronism, give " the godly young man " k. by the 
Pequot, 1G3G, the name of him, wh. two or three generat. later, was tak. 
not k. by a differ, tribe. Mr. Drake s devotion to Ind. hist, might excite 
wonder at such an error, that can mislead no careful reader, wh. will 
instant, perceive the cause of the hallucinat. 

BUTTERWORTH, JOHN, Rehoboth 1643, was one of the found, of first 
Bapt. ch. 1GG3, in Swanzey. JOHN, Rehoboth, s. perhaps, of the preced. 
m. 4 Sept. 1674, Hannah Wheaton, whose f. is not told, had Mary, b. 20 
Oct. 1G77 ; John, 7 May 1G79 ; and Eliz. 15 Jan. 1G83 ; perhaps others. 
NATHANIEL, Groton, perhaps only trans, d. 1G82, as Farmer tells. 
SAMUEL, perhaps of Weymouth, was adm. freem. 13 May 1640, more 
certain, liv. 1645 at Rehoboth. SAMUEL, Rehoboth, wh. may have 
been s. of the preced. or of John, of the same, was a soldier of Gallop s 
comp. in the sad exped. of Sir William Phips against Quebec, 1690 ; 
but it is not kn. whether he outliv. it. 

BUTTOLPH, JOHN, Salem, s. of Thomas, a glover, m. 16 Oct. 1663, 
Ann, or Hannah, d. of George Gardner, had John, b. 11 Sept. 1664, d.

in rec.) 9 Apr. 1666 ; George, 15 Oct. 1667 ; rem. to Boston, there was 
freem. 1673; rem. to Wethersfield, and m. after 1687, Susanna, wid. of 
Nathaniel Sandford of Hartford, and d. 14 Jan. 1693. Other ch. he 
had, as John, again, Abigail, James, perhaps more, and left large est. at 
W. and Boston. THOMAS, Boston, leather-dresser, or glover, came in 
the Abigail, from London, 1635, aged 32, with w. Ann, 24, had Thomas, 
b. 12 Aug. 1637, bapt. 29 Sept. 1639, as he and w. had that mo. unit, 
with our ch.; John, 28, bapt. 29 Feb. 1640; Abigail, 18, bapt. 19 Feb.

constable 1647, and d. 1667. His wid. liv. to 10 Oct. 1680. Abigail 
m. 15 Aug. 1660, David Saywell, and, next, m. 1673, Thomas Bingley. 
This name in ch. rec. is Buttall, wh. misled Farmer to count two for one, 
and is print. Buttels in 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 106. THOMAS, Boston,

BUTTON, DANIEL, perhaps of Haverhill, s. of Matthias, may have had 
s. Matthias, and was in Lothrop s comp. k. at Bloody brook battle, 18 
Sept. 1G75. || JOHN, Boston 1633, a miller, freem. 14 May 1634, 
ar. co. 1643, was a miller in Eng. b. a. 1594, disarm, in 1637, as a 
favor, of Wheelwright, yet made constable 1640, had w. Grace, wh. d. 9 
Mar. 1639. Next yr. he had sec. w. Joan, and a third, in his will of 5 
Nov. 1681, is nam. Mary, to wh. he gave most of his prop. exc. 20. to 
the first ch. " to buy two silver cups." Near 48 yrs. he had been a 
mem. and his resid. was on Copp s hill, of course near his mill. MAT 
THIAS, Boston, a Dutchman, by w. Lettice had Mary, bapt. 23 Feb. 
1634; and Daniel, 22 Feb. 1635; was of Ipswich 1639, and after at 
Haverhill, where at gr. age, he d. 1672. Rev. Thomas Cobbet says, he 
came in 1628, of course with Endicott to Salem. But Mr. Felt perhaps 
confus. him with Robert. MATTHIAS, Haverhill, perhaps gr.s. of the 
preced. took o. of alleg. 28 Nov. 1677. PETER, New London, had 
Peter, b. 1688; Mary, 1689; Matthias, 1692; and d. Eliphal, 1694. 
ROBERT, Salem, freem. 1642, m. Abigail, d. of wid. Alice Yermaes, had 
Samuel, bapt. 27 May of that yr. ; Abigail, 7 Jan. 1644; Hannah, 21 
Dec. 1645, a. five days old ; Sarah, 16 Jan. 1648, a. six days old; and 
Samuel, again, 24 Feb. 1650, a. nine days old. But the three last were 
b. and bapt. at Boston, where he was a merch. in large business, con 
stable 1650, and d. next yr. in early manhood. His will of 9 Jan. was 
pro. 3 weeks after, and his wid. m. in Apr. foil. Edward Hutchinson, jr. 
Abigail m. Joseph Dudson. 

BUTTRICK, SAMUEL, Concord, s. of William, was freem. 1679, and 
perhaps the same wh. serv. in Appleton s comp. as from Cambridge, was 
wound, in the gr. swamp fight, 19 Dec. 1675, and on the roll wrote his 
name Bouterick. WILLIAM, Concord, came, prob. in the Susan and 
Ellen 1635, aged 18, and he may have come, as Shattuck thot. with 
Flint, the chief planter of C. as we kn. not what sh. F. came in ; yet 
the est. of F. was so large, that he must have been liable as a subsidy 
man, so under the Privy council s order not permit, to emb. without 
special license for the purpose, and to him, as a favorer of puritans, such 
license might have been refus. B. m. 1646, Sarah Bateman, wh. d. 
1664, perhaps mo. of all his ch. Mary; William; John, b. 21 Sept. 
1653, wh. was inhab. of Stow ; Samuel, 12 Jan. 1655 ; Edward, 6 Jan. 
1657, wh. d. in few days ; Joseph, 29 Dec. 1657 ; and Sarah. I suppose 
that in Concord rec. when it tells the b. of Mary, 19 Sept. 1648, and d. 
1 Nov. foil, and calls her d. of William and Mary, it is a blunder. He 
was freem. 1647, took sec. w. 1667, Jane Goodenow, possib. wid. of 
Thomas, wrote his name in three syllab. Butterick, and d. 30 June 1698. 
WILLIAM, Cambridge, came in the Planter 1635, aged 20, said to be

from Kingston, on Thames, call, ostler ; but it may have been for purpose 
of deception. He m. I think, Eliz. cl. of John Hastings. 

BUTTRY, or BUTTERY, JOHN, Reading, perhaps s. of Nicholas, had 
John, b. 9 May 1660 ; and Eliz. 1 June 1662. NICHOLAS, Cambridge, 
came, prob. in the James from London 1635, aged 33, with w. Martha, 
28, and ch. Grace, 1. This surname is unusual; but when Grace m. 
14 Oct. 1653, William Healey, it was spell. Butterice, or Buttress.

Safety 1635. Much idle conject. has been expend, on the reason of his

absurd is, that he was a regicide. Perhaps he was only a misanthrop. 
humorist, perhaps had been a buccanier, and thot. seclusion his safest 
course. See Hinman. He built, 1689, the first ho. in the town, left ch. 
in Eng. as his will, 5 May 1696, shows. In it he gave Id. for a sch.
