Ano.

BARCROFT. See Bancroft.
BARD, JOHN, Lynn, had John, b. 29 Jan. 1678. Sometimes this spell. is substit. for Beard, and perhaps opposite mistake may even the balance. BARDEN, THOMAS, R. I. an inhab. of that Col. 1675.

BAREFOOTE, WALTER, of Great Island (Newcastle) N. H. 1660, was a counsel. of the Col. 1682, and Dept. Gov. 1685, d. a. 1688, and his will may be read in our Suffk. Reg. His conduct in office is much spoken against, and something prejudicial to his charact. is seen in a depon. of William Davis, of Mar. 1677, as to facts more than fourteen yrs. [[vol. 1, p. 115]] bef. for wh. see Geneal. Reg. V. 358. Chalmers, in Pol. Ann. 509, gives a letter of his, 29 Mar. 1683, wherein he remarks, that his experience of more than 25 yrs. in the country enables him to speak, as very shrewdly he does, of the clerical influence prevalent here.

Jane had Elizabeth b. 17 July of that yr.; Mary, 15 Feb. 1653; John, 15 Jan. 1654; Sarah, 9 Mar. 1655; and Thomas, 1657.

JAMES, Newport, 1651, b. a. 1617, brot. by his f. James in 1634 on board the Mary and John, with prob. no other ch. and his f. d. on the passage. To the protect. of his sis. Christian, w. of Thomas Beecher of Charlestown, was this youth of seventeen yrs. commit. and she, soon aft. the d. of her h. m. Nicholas Easton as his sec. w. and it is thot. E. had come over in the same sh. with Barber. At least he rec. friend. care of E. until reach. full age. He came from Harwich, Co.

Yet evid. it is, that the Excor's w. as b. to a former h. of the testator, not nam. King. JOSEPH, Newport, s. of the first James of the same, m. Sarah Read. NATHANIEL, Rowley, freem. 1677, was s. of James, and gladly would I find more of him. NICHOLAS, Boston 1655, carpenter, had d. Esther, wh. m. 10 Feb. 1652, Ambrose Dew, but as no more can be found of him, I must conclude, that her f. had brought her from Eng. PETER, Newport, s. of James the first of the same, m. a d. perhaps of John Bliss, at least my corresp. says Major Bliss. RICHARD, Andover 1615, was one of the found. of the ch. there, by w. Joanna had John, William, Richard, Ebenezer, Stephen, and Benjamin, wh. all sett. in A. beside ds. Sarah, wh. m. 17 Nov. 1673, John Abbot; Esther, wh. m. 10 Aug. 1676, John Stevens; and Hannah, wh. m. 27 May 1680, Christopher Osgood; and he d. 18 Mar. 1693. RICHARD, Andover, s. of the preced. m. 21 Apr. 1682, Hannah Kimball, had Richard, wh. d. 22 Dec. 1698; and nothing more is kn. to me. ROBERT, Duxbury 1648, br. of the first John, had Robert; and from his will of 18 Feb. 1689, we kn. that other ch. were Francis, Isaac, Rebecca, w. of William Snow, and Abigail Rogers, but wh. was h. of this last is not seen.

STEPHEN, Andover, s. of the first Richard, m. 13 May 1687, Mary, d. of George Abbot the sec. of the same, but I hear nothing, of issue. THOMAS, Rowley, perhaps br. of James of the same, freem. 13 May 1640, ar. co. 1641, d. 1650. His wid. Mary, m. 16 July 1651, Rev. Ezekiel Rogers, as his third w. but whether she bore ch. to either h. is not kn. THOMAS, Boston, by w. Jane had Thomas, b. 23 Aug. 1657; was freem. 1678. WILLIAM, Andover, s. of the first Richard, m. 20 Feb. 1677, Mary Dix, but whose d. she was, is undiscov. had John, wh. d. 13 Apr. 1689, and no more is in my power to tell, save that the f. d. 1718, aged 71. WILLIAM, Salem, freem. 1678, may be the same as the preced. WILLIAM, Newport, br. of Peter of the same, m. Elizabeth Easton, prob. d. of Peter of the same.
BARLOW, AARON, Rochester, by w. Beulah had Elizabeth b. 22 Aug. 1684; Mary, 30 Mar. 1688; Shubael, 13 May 1691; and Nathan, 1 July 1697. He was rep. 1690, says Samuel David 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. IV. 260. BARTHOLOMEW, Boston, cooper 1648--57, in wh. last yr. he d. [[vol. 1, p. 117]] 26 Sept. by nuncup. will giv. to his s. Thomas what little he had, refusing any thing to serv. EDWARD, Malden, m. Mary, d. of James Pemberton, bef. 1660, as in her f.'s will is read, and had childr. as the same docum. proves, but no names can be heard. But I think his bapt. name may have been EDMUND, for Mr. Wyman gives me such a one, with w. Mary, who in his will, pro. 1697, names ch. James; Mary; Sarah Grover, perhaps w. of Simon; Elizabeth Whiting; and Deborah Hovey; beside gr.ch. Edmund, and Elizabeth Chadwick. GEORGE, Exeter 1639, Saco 1652, was a preach. at both, and elsewhere, but, in 1653, was forbid. by the Gen. Ct. to preach or prophesy on penalty of £10 for every offence. He had been that very yr. sworn freem. of Mass. 5 July at Wells, but rem. to Sandwhich 1658, m. Jane, wid. of Anthony Bessey, and there essay. to be a lawyer. Greenleaf in Eccl. Sk.52; Bishop's N. E. Judged, 389; and Sewell's Hist. I. 571. GEORGE, Milford, had bef. 1690, m. a d. of Vincent Stetson, as in the will of S. appears. JAMES, Suffield 1680, m. 10 Jan. 1688, Sarah, d. of Thomas Huxley of the same, d. 16 Mar. 1690, leav. James, b. 27 Jan. 1689. JOHN, Fairfield 1668, d. 1674, in his will of 28 Mar. of that yr. ment. w. Ann, s. John, and ds. Elizabeth Frost, Martha, w. of James Beers, Deborah, w. of John Sturges, Ruth, w. of Israel Bradlee, and Isabella Clapham. JOHN, Fairfield, perhaps s. of the preced. m. Abigail, d. of Robert Lockwood. MOSES, Rochester, perhaps br. of Aaron of the same, had rem. thither from Sandwich bef. 1684. THOMAS, Fairfield 1653, had been a juror in 1645, by w. Rose acc. Hinman, in Ed. sec. p. 131, had Phebe, Deborah, and Mary, and made his will 8 Sept. 1658. THOMAS, Boston, by w. Elizabeth (whose ch. by two later h.'s in choos. their guardian, Joseph Royall, call him uncle) had Elizabeth b. 13 Nov. 1657; and Sarah, 18 July 1659; and d. 23 Oct. 1661. His wid. m. 24 Feb. next John Coombs of Boston, and in 1669, m. John Warren. Barlow's prop. had been so much reduc. by C. that after his d. the Court gave most of his resid. to B.'s only ch. Sarah. THOMAS Charlestown, m. 29 Oct. 1681, Elizabeth Mellins, had ds. Elizabeth Hurd and Mary Moore. Sometimes this name appears in early rec. Barley. Joel, kn. as the author of the Columbiad, an heroic poem, and of Hasty Pudding, an agreeable one, was by Hinman, in his first Ed. p. 14, call. a descend. of that Thomas of Fairfield, tho. on later inq. he found him s. of Samuel, b. at Reading, Conn. 24 Mar. 1754, Y. C. 1778. He transfer. his alleg. from the muses to worldly politics, and d. 24 Dec. 1812, min. plenipo. of the U. S. represent. their honor and independ. foll. in the train of Napoleon the first (like the vassal kings, wh. felt none of this American's audacious enthusiasm), in the madman's march to Moscow, at a wretched ho. on the desolate plains of Poland. Hide, blushing glory, hide Pultova's day. In Duyckinck's Cycloped. I. 391, large extr. in more than twelve pages are giv. from the poetry of B. with impartial election from pleasant, indiffer. or dull pieces, and even his detesta. homage to the guillotine; but much gratitude is due for publica. of the last notes of the dying swan, a few days bef. he d. in Advice to a Raven in Russia, being far the most forcible lines ever composed by him. They seem to be a holy cry of vengeance for the degrading serv. to wh. he was call.
BARNABY, JAMES, Plymouth, m. 8 June 1647, Lydia, d. of Robert Bartlett, had, perhaps, James, and Stephen. His wid. m. John Nelson of Middleborough. JAMES, Plymouth, s. prob. of the preced. by w. Joanna had James, b. 1698, and Ambrose, 1706. STEPHEN, Plymouth, perhaps br. of the preced. m. 1696, Ruth Morton (whose f. is not kn. to [[vol. 1, p. 118]] me), had Lydia, Ruth, Elizabeth Timothy, and Hannah; and by sec. w. Judith, wid. of Joseph Church, had Joseph, b. 1712.

FRANCIS, Hartford 1644, rem. 1659, or soon after, to Hadley, freem. 1666; in 1683, petitn. the govm. to pay him their debt, and d. 3 Feb. 1698, aged 81. He had m. 15 Aug. 1644, Hannah, sis. of Matthew and Renold Marvin, had Thomas, H. C. 1679; Samuel; Joseph; Hannah; John; and Sarah, wh. d. 1676.
