SOLDIERS

IN

KING PHILIP'S WAR

Chapter 1, Part II 

"It will be understood that the Soldiers of Plymouth Colony played an important part in this campaign, reaching the seat of war before those of Massachusetts; and the account of this will be given in separate chapters, after Massachusetts is finished. The letters of Rev. Noah Newman, Lieut. Nathaniel Thomas, Peter Hunt, and Mr. James Brown's part are all of interest and importance."

The following list, gathered from John Hull's Account-book, from date to date, and here arranged together, doubtless shows the Company which served under Capt. Henchman, in this campaign.

As to the spelling of the names, I have not departed in the least from the original. It must be remembered that the names were entered in the Journal from "Debentures" made by the clerks of companies, and the names at the first were entered on the company rolls as each man was understood to pronounce his own name, and unless the clerk was acquainted with the name, he spelled it by the easiest method; hence many strange variations appear. The Ledger account often has two forms for the same name.
