Esther m. 18 June 1677, John Newhall of L.

BASCOM, THOMAS, Dorchester 1634, came perhaps in July 1633 with the comp. that sat down at D. then, tho. Dr. Harris wish. to number him as of 1630, rem. to Windsor, there had Abigail, bapt. 7 June 1640; Thomas, 20 Feb. 1642; Hepzibah, 14 Apr. 1644; rem. to Northampton, a. 1661, and there d. 9 May 1682.

Of this f. and s. the names are misprint. BOSTOUN,in Geneal. Reg. IX. 89, as are sev. others in the same list various. distort. As the copy was procur. from the Mass. archives for that publicat. by a careful hand, we can be sure, that the orig. signatures were not very plain. Farmer, in 1836, count. gr. of this name in the N. E. coll. ten, of wh. two ea. for Harv. Yale, and Dart.

BASS, JOHN, Braintree, s. of Samuel the first, m. 3 or 13 by rec. Feb. 1658, or (as differ. reading of the same numerals for mos. and day would express), 12 May 1657, Ruth, third d. of John Alden, the Mayflower passeng. had John, b. 26 Nov. 1658; Samuel, 25 Mar. 1660; Ruth, 28 Jan. 1662; Joseph, 5 Dec. 1665; Hannah, 22 June 1667; Mary, 11 Feb. 1669, or 70; and Sarah, 29 May 1672.

SAMUEL, Roxbury 1632, freem. 14 May 1634; rem. in 1640 to Braintree, was the first deac. there 50 yrs. rep. 1641, and oft. later; by w. Ann had Samuel, Mary, and Hannah, b. prob. in Eng. and John, Thomas, Joseph, and Sarah, b. here. His w. d. 5 Sept. 1663, and he d. 30 Dec. 1694, aged 93, hav. seen 162 descend. His d.

He m. 1680, Susanna, prob. the wid. of Nathaniel Blanchard of Weymouth. He was deac. at B. Very large acco. of this fam. in later times may have seen in Thayer's Geneal. but of gr. at N. E. coll. in 1834 Farmer could have been few, if any, exc. seven at Harv. three first of wh. were min.

BASSAKER, BUSSAKER, or BUSICOT, PETER, Boston, whipt for drunken. Sept. 1636, rem. bef. 1643, to Hartford, was after at Warwick most [[vol. 1, p. 136]] of his days. had d. Mary, wh. m. 15 Dec. 1670, Peter Spicer of Norwich; Abigail, wh. m. Hugh Stone; and Peter, perhaps only s. wh. accident. shot. hims.

BASSETT, DAVID, Boston, had Mary, bapt. at O. S. ch. 13 Apr. 1681; and David, 25 Sept. 1687. The rec. marks him, as French, so that, I presume, he was a Hugenot. ELISHA, Lynn, s. of William of the same, had w. Elizabeth but I kn. no more. HENRY, Newport, was freem. 1655. JOHN, New Haven 1647, d. Feb 1653, leav. w. Margery, s. Robert, and in his will no other ch. He and his s. were of Stratford 1674. JOHN, New Haven, s. of William, m. as is thot. Mercy, d. of Christopher Todd, and was a propr. 1685. JOSEPH, Hingham, s. prob. youngest of the first William, m. Oct. 1677, Martha Hobart, had Joseph, William, Elnathan, Jeremiah, Lydia, Ruth, and Elizabeth and d. 1712. NATHANIEL, Yarmouth 1672, s. of William the first comer, m. a d. of John Joyce. He d. 16 Jan. 1710, in his will of six days preced. he ment. nine ch. then liv. whose names are not giv. Prob. he had sec. w. Hannah, wh. d. 1709, and it is uncert. wh. was mo. of the ch. respectiv. PETER, Boston, perhaps in 1678, a physician, may be the same wh. took o. of alleg. at York 1680. ROBERT, New Haven 1643, s. of John the first, b. in Eng. was a shoemaker, and town drummer. He had Mary, b. 8 Mar. 1650, d. in few days. SAMUEL, New Haven, s. of William of the same, m. 21 June 1677, Mary, d. of Abraham Dickerman, was a propr. 1685. THOMAS, Windsor 1641, had come in the Christian 1635, aged 37, and prob. first sat down at Dorchester, tho. not ment. there, and bef. 1653 rem. to Fairfield, d. 1668, leav. w. and ch. but their names are not heard. WILLIAM, Plymouth, came in the Fortune 1621, with w. Elizabeth m. at Leyden, as his sec. w. 13 Aug. 1611, being the earliest m. of any of our pilgrims in that foreign ld. had Sarah, William, and Elizabeth count. in the div. of cattle 1627, but neither of the three is reckon. in the div. of ld. 1623, so that we may believe they were b. in the interval, liv. at Duxbury in 1637, and was rep. 1640, and four yrs. more; in 1652, with Gov. Bradford and others join. in purch. of Dartmouth, rem. to Bridgewater, and d. 1667. Other ch. beside a sec. William, were Nathaniel, Ruth, Jane, and Joseph. His d. Sarah m. 1648, Peregrine White; and Elizabeth m. 8 Nov. of the same yr. Thomas Burge. WILLIAM, Lynn 1640, a farmer, had William; John, b. Nov. 1653; Miriam, Sept. 1655; Mary, Mar. 1657; Hannah, 25 Feb. 1660; Elisha; Samuel, 18 Mar. 1664; and Rachel, 13 Mar. 1666. His w. was, I suppose, a d. of Hugh Burt of L. wh. in his will, of 7 Oct. 1661, calls B. his s. WILLIAM, New Haven, s. perhaps of John the first, b. in Eng. m. 1648, the wid. of William Ives, had Hannah, b. 13, bapt. 15 Sept. 1650; John, b. 24 Dec. 1652; Samuel, 15 Feb. 1655; Abigail, bapt. 7 Feb. 1658; and Phebe, and d. 29 Aug. 1684. Hannah m. 8 Nov. 1670, John Parker; Abia m. 27 Apr. 1681, Ralph Lines; and Phebe m. a Rose. A good-wife B. was execut. for a witch, it is thot. at Stratford. Kingsley, 101. WILLIAM, Sandwich, s. of William the first, m. Mary, d. of Hugh Burt the first of Lynn, had Mary, b. 21 Nov. 1654; and William, 1656; perhaps others, and d. 1670. Yet it may be, that the Lynn and the Sandwich William were the same. WILLIAM, Salem, s. perhaps of William of Lynn, m. 25 Oct. 1675, Sarah Hood, d. of Richard, had Sarah, b. 6 Dec. 1676; William, 2 Oct. 1678; Mary, 13 June 1680; and John, 8 Sept. 1682. Descend. are wide. dispers. Rev. Nathan, H. C. 1719 of Charleston, S. C. was of the stock of the first comer William.

BASSOM, or BASSUM, THOMAS, Windsor, had Abigail, b. 7 June 1640; Thomas, 20 Feb. 1642; and Hepzibah, 14 July 1644. WILLIAM, Watertown 1636, as Dr. Francis, 131, gives the name; but Bond is silent, and I conject. that it was abbrev. for Bassumthwaite, wh. d. early, and his wid. had share of lds. with other Watertown sett. at Sudbury 1639. See Barry, Hist. of Framingham, 134. Yet one William Bassom there was a propr. at Wethersfield, perhaps br. of Thomas of Windsor. [[vol. 1, p. 137]]

BASTARD, JOSEPH, Fairfield, m. 1685, Hannah, wid. of Esbon Wakeman, was of Bristol, Feb. 1689, hav. one ch. and d. 1697, leav. good est. If research should show, that he came from Boston, it might be presum. that he was s. of Joseph Barstow.

BASTAR, JOSEPH, Cambridge, a tailor, had w. Mary, and d. Mary, b. 13 May 1643; rem. to Boston 1647, had Joseph, 25 or 29 Sept. of that yr.; Benjamin, 4 Apr. 1652; Susanna, 1 Sept. 1654; and John, 25 Mar. 1657; beside Ann, 26 July 1660.

BATCHELOR, or BATCHELDER. See Bachiler.

BATEMAN, EDWARD, Maine, was one of the purch. from the Ind. Sachem, Robin Hood, of the region a. Woolwich, 1654. Drake's Book of the Ind. III. 97. ELEAZER, Woburn, m. 2 Nov. 1686, Elizabeth d. of Joseph Wright, had Elizabeth b. 11 July 1688; Mary, 16 June 1696; Joseph, 7 Sept. 1699; Martha, 16 Feb. 1702; Thomas, 20 May 1704; and Ruth, 25 July 1707.

Dec. 1644; Hannah, 10 Mar. 1646; Elizabeth 30 Sept. 1647; all bapt. 14 May 1648; Sarah, bapt. 7 Oct. 1649, tho. town rec. makes her b. 6 May 1651; Rachel, b. 28 May, bapt. 1 June 1651; Mary, 16, bapt. 23 Jan. 1653, d. young; William, 8, bapt. 11 Mar. 1655; Joseph, b. 28 Aug. 1658; and Mary again, bapt. 9 Sept. 1660. Perhaps he rem. to Woburn, for them Hannah m. 12 June 1667, Zechariah Green; and Sarah m. 3 July 1671, John Green, both of W. JOHN, Woburn, s. perhaps of the preced. m. 30 June 1680, Abigail Richardson, prob. d. of Theophilus, had Abigail, b. 18 Oct. 1682, d. soon; Abigail, again, 1 Jan. 1685; John, 13 Aug. 1687; William, 29 Sept. 1690, d. young; William, again, 3 May 1693; and Peter, 3 Nov. 16953. Perhaps he rem. JOSEPH, Boston, s. of John of the same, was of Turner's comp. in Philip's war, 1676. NATHANIEL, Watertown 1640, is not ment. by Bond. THOMAS,Concord, freem. 18 May 1642, d. 6 Feb. 1669, aged 51, leav. by Martha, s. Thomas, Peter, wh. d. at Woburn 13 Feb. 1676, John, and Ebenezer; beside ds. Martha, Elizabeth wh. was b. 6 Mar. 1660, and Sarah. eight days bef. he d. all these are nam. in his will. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1638, had long bef. been in the Col. as he was adm. freem. 18 May 1631, so that he prob. came in the fleet with Winthrop perhaps rem. to Chelmsford, tho. as two of the name were in Mass. it is uncert. for WILLIAM of Concord, br. of Thomas, was prob. the freem. of 2 June 1641 (since his name in the list is next to that of William Hunt of C.), yet he rem. to Fairfield 1650, or earlier there d. 1658, in his will of 24 Mar. 1656, giv. L5 to gr.ch. Joseph Middlebrook, and one half of his est. to s. Thomas, "now of Concord," the other half to s.-in-law Henry Lyon.

BATES, BENJAMIN, Hingham, youngest s. of Clement that he brot. from Eng. was freem. 1672, and d. of smallpox 28 Nov. 1678. He was a lieut. [[vol. 1, p. 138]] had w. Jane, nam. in his will, made two weeks bef. his d. giv. est. to her and the ch. of his br. hav. as we are therefore led to infer, no ch. of his own. BENJAMIN, Hingham, s. of James of the same, m. 10 Oct. 1682, Mary Leavitt, d. perhaps of John; prob. rem. after d. of his f. to Huntington, L. I., but many yrs. bef. was a soldier in Dec. 1675 of Johnson's comp. CLEMENT, Hingham, a tailor, said to be from Co. Herts, but more prob. from Kent, came in the Elizabeth, 1635, aged 40, with w. Ann, 40, and ch. James, 14; Clement, 12; Rachel], 8; Joseph, 5; Benjamin, 2; and two serv. and here had Samuel, bapt. 24 Mar. 1639; and Hopestill, Sept. 1644; was freem. 3 Mar. 1636, and d. 17 Sept. 1671. 

CLEMENT, Hingham, s. of the preced. brot. from Eng. by his f. d. bef. 1669, leav. wid. Ruth, wh. in a petitn. to the governm. of the Col. Apr. 1676, set forth, that she had two s. Clement and Solomon, serv. with Capt. Lothrop when "the flower of Essex" was slain, that Clement was k. by the Ind. soon after at Westfield, wherefore she pray. that Solomon might be disch. EDWARD, Boston 1633, came with Thomas Leverett, as his apprent. in the Griffin, freem. 9 Mar. 1637, was disarm. as a favorer of Wheelwright, had John, bapt. 23 Jan. 1642. *EDWARD, Weymouth, freem. 13 Mar. 1639, had Prudence, b. 11 June that yr. and Increase, 28 Dec. 1641, was rep. 1639-41 and 60, as well as ch. Elder. His d. Susanna, m. 16 Dec. 1658, Nathaniel Blanchard. EDWARD, Weymouth, perhaps s. of the preced. by w. Elizabeth had Susanna, b. 6 Feb. 1680; Edward, 3 Feb. 1683; John, 16 Jan. 1686; and Mary, 11 Dec. 1697. FRANCIS, Topsfield 1661, m. Ann Oldham, d. of Sarah O. and gr.d. of Richard North, had Ebenezer, b. 20 Jan. 1662; but my dilig. inquir. has not learn. what Oldham m. Richard North's d. GEORGE, Boston, a thatcher, freem. 25 May 1636, liv. at Muddy riv. now Brookline, went to Exeter, but came back. Belkn. I. 20. INCREASE, Weymouth, s. of Edward the first. by w. Mary had Edward, b. 31 Jan. 1682; Ebenezer, 1 Mar. 1686; and Ann, 23 Aug. 1695. JAMES, Dorchester, husbandman, came in the Elizabeth, 1635, aged 53; with w. Alice, 52; and ch. Lydia, 20; Mary, 17; Margaret, 12; and James, 9; freem. 7 Dec. 1636, selectman next yr. and after; rep. for Hingham, 1641. He was perhaps br. of Clement, and d. 1655. His wid. d. 14 Aug. 1657. Lydia m. Roger Williams of D.; Mary m. Hopestill Foster; and Margaret m. Christopher Gibson. He had a s. Richard, wh. liv. at a hamlet, call. the town of Lid in Co. Kent, whence, prob. the fam. came. 

JAMES, Hingham, eldest s. prob. of Clement of the same, m. 19 Apr. 1642, or 3, Ruth Lyford, that may be conject. as d. of Rev. John, left by him when he went to Virg. had John, b. 1649; Ruth, Sept. 1651; at Scituate, where he liv. some yrs. but ret. to H. had Joseph, bapt. 20 Nov. 1653; Benjamin, bapt. 15 July 1655; Solomon, 23 Aug. 1657; perhaps others; and d. 5 July 1689. He petitn. the Gov. and Assist. for relief on acco. of two s. prest into the serv. against the Ind. His wid. d. 9 Mar. foll. Deane thot. him s. of James of Dorchester, but so do not I. His d. Rachel m. 8 May 1684, Caleb Lincoln. [[vol. 1, p. 139]] *JAMES, Haddam 1667, prob. s. of James of Dorchester, where he m. Ann, d. of the first Henry Withington, and soon after went home, and came again soon, perhaps went again to Eng. and came back soon, may have first been at Huntington, L. I. d. bef. 1692, when of his ch. at Haddam were Samuel, bapt. at Dorchester, 18 June 1648; James, b. Oct. 1666; John; Hannah; Margaret, bapt. at D. 19 June 1664; Mary, bapt 11 Mar. 1666; and Elizabeth He was rep. for H. 1670, and often after. Mary m. 16 Aug. 1685, William Hough of Saybrook. The late Hon. Isaac C. Bates, U. S. senator, was prob. a descend. by one of these who rem. to Durham, whose s. rem. to Granville, Mass. JOHN, Weymouth, by w. Susan had Edward, b. 10 Dec. 1655; was perhaps of Chelmsford 1666, freem. 1682. See Allen, Hist. of C. 169. JOHN, Haddam, perhaps br. of James of the same, was of Stamford 1669, had John, b. 8 June 1678; and Solomon Feb. 1680. My conject. is confirm. by auth. of D. Williams Patterson. 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, Hingham, s. of Clement, b. in Eng. m. 28 Jan. 1658, Esther Hilliard, perhaps d. of Anthony of the same, had Joseph, Caleb, Hannah, Joshua, Aug. 1671; Bathsheba, Clement, 21 Sept. 1676; 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 1640, rem. to Stamford, there d. 11 June 1675, leav. s. John; d. Mary Ambler, w. of Abraham, and s.-in-law John Cross, ment. in his will of that date. He was one of the first purch. of S. 30 Oct. 1640. 

ROBERT, Lynn, had John, wh. d. 5 Mar. 1672; Rebecca, b. 29 Aug. 1673; and Sarah, 16 July 1676. SAMUEL, Hingham, youngest s. of Clement the first, m. 22 Feb. 1667, Lydia, d. of Thomas Lapham of Scituate, had Lydia, b. 2 Sept. 1669; Sarah, 23 Dec. 1673; a d. b. 23 Apr. 1676; ano. 17 Apr. 1678; Samuel, Mar. 1680; and David, 20 Feb. 1683; was freem. 1672. SAMUEL, Saybrook, m. 2 May 1676, Mary, d. of Robert Chapman of the same, had Samuel, b. 15 Apr. foll. d. at 8 mos. ; Ann, 19 Sept. 1678; Silence, 27 July 1680; Samuel, again, 8 Nov. 1682; James, 16 Dec. 1685; Robert, 22 Dec. 1686; Stephen, 1 June 1689; Ephraim, 29 May 1692; Daniel, 18 Aug. 1697; and d. 28 Dec. 1699.

BATSON, JOHN, Kennebunk, perhaps s. of Stephen, m. 1660, Elizabeth 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, perhaps d. of Christopher. STEPHEN, Saco 1636, then had w. Mary, 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. Elizabeth 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. of Simon. [[vol. 1, p. 140]]

BATT, CHRISTOPHER, Newbury, tanner, came from the city of Salisbury, 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 Salis bury, 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 Elizabeth 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. 1673, at Boston, and both prob. certain one of them interest. in the tannery; and of Samuel it is said that he was, as is min. in Eng. and infer. that he never came back to this ld. 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. TIMOTHY, Boston, s. prob. of Christopher, was assoc. with Penn Townsend and others, Sept. 1677, involunt. comp. of Milit. m. 3 Aug. 1699, Sarah Tudman.

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. 1713. JONATHAN, Dedham, br. of the preced. m. 15 Apr. 1690, Mary Onion, perhaps d. of Robert, had Martha, b. 13 Mar. foll.; 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. Elizabeth 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 [[vol. 1, p. 141]] 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 have the larger part of his prop. (having no near relative this side of Eng.) to their f. spelt by the testator, Battely.

Other ch. were Daniel, Mary, and Elizabeth but prob. most of these, if not all, were by former w. EDMUND, Salem, s. of the preced. m. Martha, d. of Benjamin Pickman the first. JOSEPH, and TIMOTHY of Northampton 1668, as print. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 88, are fictitious people, the real names being of s. of Edward Baker. NICHOLAS, Lynn, freem. 14 Dec. 1638, had gr. of 60 acres. Lewis, 103, tells no more of him.

BATTING, or BATTENS, William, Saco, a. 1659, Scarborough 1663.

JOHN, Salem, m. 25 Nov. 1667, Abigail Whitney (but, of so common a surname, it is diffic. to find the f. and Essex Inst. Hist. Coll. I. 35, makes her name Whiterig, but to her it may be equal. hard to find f.) had John, b. 14 Dec. 1668; Abigail, 15 Dec. 1670; Elizabeth 25 May 1673; and Mary, [[vol. 1, p. 142]] 26 Dec. 1674, wh. d. within 9 mos. beside William, 14 Oct. 1676. His w. d. 22 Nov. foll. and he m. 4 Nov. 1679, wid. Elizabeth Macmallen, had Sarah, b. 15 Au. 1680; and Samuel, 10 June 1683. NICHOLAS, Boston 1639, mariner, by w. Ann had Mary, b. Feb. 1640, bapt. 1 Sept. 1644, wh. m. 1658, John Bull. But the rec. says, also, that by the same maid. name she m. 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 castle 1674-6, perhaps later, and d. 10 Jan. 1692. RICHARD, Hingham, came 1638, in the Diligent from old Hingham, employ. by Francis James, says Lincoln in Centen. Addr. 41. THOMAS, Fairfield 1654, had w. Bridget, wh. for his desertion of her, obt. divorce in 166-2. See Haz. II. 285. WILLIAM, Marblehead 1674. Six of this name had, in 1815, been gr. at Harv.

HENRY, Salisbury, s. perhaps of John the first, by w. Rebecca had Henry; and Rebecca, b. a. 1640. ISAAC, Newbury, s. of John the sec. of same, m. 13 June 1683, Sarah, d. of John Emery of the same, had Isaac, b. 30 Dec. 1683; Joshua, 30 Oct. 1685; David, 12 Dec. 1687; Judith, 11 Feb. 1690; and Sarah, 11 Feb. 1692. His w. d. 1 Apr. 1694; and he m. sec. w. 5 Sept. 1700, Rebecca Bartlett, but prob. had no more ch. at least Coffin names none. JAMES, Rowley 1641, by w. Lydia had John, b. 1642; James, 1650; Thomas, 1653; and Samuel, 1658; beside Damaris, w. of Thomas Leaver; and Lydia, 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; James, 12 Apr. 1675; John, 29 Sept. 1676, d. next yr.; John, again, 10 May 16, 8; Samuel, 2 Mar. 1680; and Isaac, 22 Oct. 1681; all exc. the first aft. rem. to Salem vill. now Danvers, there was a preach. but neither Bentley's Hist. nor Felt's Ann. of Salem (the best places to seek for such informat.) 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, I. 186, Bailey's d. is mark. for 1707, and Coffin, 351, more precise, 17 Jan. at Roxbury. I venture a conject. that he is the one ord. at Weymouth, 26 Sept. 1703, as told in 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. IX. 195; yet the rec. of d. at Roxbury of James Bailey calls him Esqr.

JOHN, Salisbury, a weaver from Chippenham, Co. Wilts, came, in the Angel Gabriel, from Bristol, Apr. 1635, and was cast away at Pemaquid, in the great storm of 15 Aug. He rem. 1650 to Newbury (where prob. [[vol. 1, p. 143]] he had been resid. bef. settlem. of S.), and d. 2 Nov. of next yr. His w. never came over the ocean, and he was afraid to go back for her and his other childr. Robert and two or more ds. But in his will he tried to tempt them hither by parts of his est. JOHN, Salisbury, s. of the preced. came with his f. m. Eleanor Emery, perhaps d. of John of Newbury, had Rebecca, b. 24 Nov. 1641; and John, 18 May 1643, d. at 20 yrs. rem. to Newbury, and there had Sarah, 17 Aug. 1644; Joshua, d. young; Joseph, 4 Apr. 1648; James, 12 Sept. 11, 1650, H.

His will of 11 Nov. of that yr. pro. 9 Feb. foll. direct. his body to be bur. next his w. Elizabeth in the orchard, gave most of his est. to w. Elinor, legacies to six s. of Robert Jordan, to Francis Neale sen. and his s. and two ds. to John Jackson, perhaps s. of his w. to his br. Nicholas Baley, as he spel. the name, to Elizabeth and John Bryers and others, but he had no ch. JOSEPH, Huntington, L. I. was adm. as freem. of Conn. 1664. JOSEPH, Newbury, s. of John the sec. by w.

He rem. to Kennebunk, there was k. by the Ind. Oct. 1723. NICHOLAS, Saco 1663, br. of Jonas, had perhaps been of New Haven 1644, and may have been br. of Samuel at New Haven in the same yr. See Bailey. ROBERT, came from London in the Hopewell, Capt. Babb, in the autumn of 1635, aged 23; and ano. ROBERT, came in the Confidence from Southampton, 1638, aged 23; but nothing more is to be heard of either of them. SAMUEL, Boston 1685.

BAZICOTT, PETER, Warwick, one of the freem. 1655; and without kn. whether this were a Dutch, French, or English name, we may be sure it was variously spelt. See Bassaker.

BEACH, or BEECH, AZARIAH, New Haven, s. of Richard, d. 1696, leav. 7 ch, betw. 6 and 21 yrs. of age. BENJAMIN, Stratford 1659, was s. of Richard of New Haven, I judge, and m. 1673, Mary, d. of John Peacock, and next m. 1 Feb. 1678, Sarah, d. of John Welles of the same, had Sarah, b. 4 May 1679; and Hannah, Sept. 1681; and he d. 10 Apr. 1715. But his first w. had bro. him Benjamin, b. 1672; Bethia, 1674; and d. 1677. Goodwin, in Geneal. Notes, 254, led me into the error of mak. Sarah, wid. of Beach to m. A.
