'J'he Arabic miiubors runuin;^ tliroii;;h the whole geuealofjjy 
\n-c to shoAV tlic uuinbor of each individual ; and by tlie aid of 
them the connection of every person ia scon at a glance. A 
number set at tlie end of a person's name, if lower than his reg- 
ular number, shows that that person is lir.-,t named at that regu- 
lar number in the series, but if higher than his regular nundjer, 
hhows that immediately after tliat number in the series he is 
named again, and some further account of him or his descend- 
ants is there given. The Koman numerals are oidy employed to 
slujw the number of children belonging to the same particnhjr 
family. ]5y means of these numljcrs the account of all those 
individuals and families which are broken off and rocommenccd 
at some liigher number (as the greater part necessarily must be) 
can be traced backward or forward with ease and facility, and by 
the use of these numbers any corrections or additions of individ- 
uals or families may be made at the end, and appear plain and 
intelhgible. b is generally put for born, m for married, d for 
died, and a for aged. 


The name of FofiG appears to bo of ^rcat antiquity in Eno--- 
land, and Wales. !Some by that naino were from the ctjunty 
of Lancashire, near the borders of Nortii Wales, and settled 
in the county of Kent, in the reign of llenry 1, or about tlid 
year 1112 or '15, or about fifty years after the Norman con- 
quest ; some of whom settled in the toAv^n of Ashford in that 
county (Avliich is about 54 miles from London) in the reio'n of 
Henry IV, or about 1400. There was a Sir John Foj^it avIio 
founded a College in Ashford, and died there in 1490; his soir 
Sir John Fog'g' resided there ; his will is dated November 4, 
15IJI}, by which he a])points Edward Lee, Archbishop of York, 
overseer of his estate. There was also a 8ir Francis Foo-rr at 
Ashford, who accpiired the manor Repton, by his marriafi;e 
Avith a co-hoiress of the Valoigns ; those families were of hinh 
standing and of much consequence for many ages, but they 
arc now entirely extinct in Ashford, and perhaps in the county. 
Calamy gives an account of a Rev. Robert Fogg, an ejected 
miinster in UM')'^, in North Wales, who from s(uiie traits in hia 
disposition we might reasonably suppose was nearly related to 
some (by that name) who early settled in this country. 


(1) Rut the common progenitor of most, and perhaps all by^ 
that name in this coiuUry was Saimvjel Fogg, of Hampton, N. 
H. According to tradition, three brothers by the name of 
Fogg emigrated from ^Vales to this country prior to the mid- 
dle of the 17th century; two of them, ►Samuel and Robert or 
Ralph are said to have settled in Hampton, and the other iu 
Rhode Island. Of the one settled in Rhode Island (if thero 
was one) we have no knowledge. Robert or Ralph is suppos- 


ed to liave lived and died unmarried. But Mr. Felt speaks of 
a Ralpli Foii-o- iu Sulcia amoiiLi,' the fust settlers of that town, 
but says tliat lie returned to l-lnoland. 

At what prtioise time Samuel Fo^x^^ emii^'rated to this coun- 
try is unknown, but he Avas evidently amon<^- the very <'ar]y, if 
not the tirst settlors of Jlamjjlon, iu Ki-'^"^. He married tirst 
Anne Shaw, of Hampton, the ]2lh day 10 month, l(i.")*2. She 
died about J()(il ; he mari'ied his second wife, Mary Pa^o, of 
that phice, about i()()*2. He dii'd at Hamjiton April 1(), Ki/'-i. 
His widow, Mary, died Marcii .^ Ki!*!), a^^'d r)(i years. He 
was a farmer, owned a farm in Ham]>ton, on whicli ht; lived 
and died. He was early a member of tJie cun^-ren-ational 
church in that place, ajid jirobably Ainie his Hrst wife ; his sec- 
ond wife joined it May '2D, lO'Jri. His children were 


Samuel (29) b about l()5l}, m Hannah Marston, lO^i day

James Fogg (39,) son of James (38,) married Anne Reniick,-

ance were somewhat romantic. She resided on what is called 
Eliot Neck, near the margin of the river. As he was passing iir* 
a Boat up the Piscataqua one mouii-light summer evening, his 
attention Avas arrested by the sound of the voices of a group 
of young females near Die banks of the river, who were ser- 
enading the people as they passed on the river; the charms 
of the voice of one in particular forcibly impressed his atten- 
tion, who on subsequent enquiry appeared to be IVIiss Remick; 
at which thne a more intimate acquaintance commenced, which 
ultimately led to their marriage. She is said to have been re- 
markable in her youth for her personal attractions, and in later
