JOSEPH, Stratford, youngest br. of the preced. m. 14 June 1698, Ann Burr, had Abigail, b. 24 Sept. 1700; Abraham, 5 Sept. 1702; and Hannah, 3 Jan. 1705.

BOSWAY, WILLIAM, is the name borne on the rolls of Turner's comp. 1676, of whose resid. I am less solicitous, because so many are incorrect. writ. that we can easily doubt the accuracy of this.
BOSWELL, JAMES, Wethersfield 1658, d. 24 Dec. 1660, prob. without fam. JOHN, Boston 1630, prob. came in the fleet with Winthrop early mem. of the ch. d. soon. SAMUEL, Bradford, a. 1663, Rowley 1671, had Samuel. SAMUEL, Boston, possib. s. of the preccd. by w. Mary had Richard, b. 9 June 1678. Sometimes this name is Buswell.
BOSWORTH, BENJAMIN, Hingham 1635, came, perhaps, in the [[vol. 1, p. 216]] Elizabeth Dorcas 1635 with Henry Sewall, and may have been s. of Edward, wh. prob. d. on the passage; at least, in the Col. Rec. I. 123, provis. for a wid. B. is made, and lb. 152, he with Jonathan and Nathaniel B.is order. to pay unto S. several sums for money disburs. by him in the transport. of Edward and his fam. A wid. B. at H. 18 May 1648. But I am confus. betw. the two Benjamin, the younger of wh. m. 7 Dec. 1670, Elizabeth d. of Secr. Morton.

Rebecca Stevens; d. Nov. 1700, and his wid d. Jan. 1712, aged 88. She is one of the persons wh. was said to have been k. by the Ind. at the assault on Lancaster, 1676. HANANIEL, Ipswich 1648, rem. I suppose, to Haverhill, where is found, in 1674, Hannah, prob. his w. or d. JOHN, of Hull perhaps was the freem. 14 May 1634. One JOHN, of Hull, was a soldier, in Dec. 1675, of Johnson's comp.

JONATHAN, Swanzey, had Hannah, b. 5 Nov. 1673. JOSEPH, Hull, freem. 1680, perhaps youngest br. of first Benjamin, rem. to Rehoboth, there had Joseph, b. 27 Sept. 1679; and Elizabeth 17 Nov. 1681. NATHANIEL, Hull 1661, freem. 1680, prob. br. of the sec. Benjamin, m. 7 Dec. 1670, Elizabeth d. of Secr. Nathaniel Morton of Plymouth, wh. d. 6 Apr. 1673, and was bur. 8, says the rec. two hours bef.

BOURDEN, JOHN and WILLIAM were of Watertown 1657, and the former sw. fidel 1652.
BOURLE, WILLIAM, Charlestown, a soldier in Moseley's comp. k. in the Narraganset fight, 19 Dec. 1675; but my suspicion of the spell. of the name is very great, tho. to offer a substitute is not easy. Mr. Wyman tells me, the name was Burt.
BOURNE, ELISHA, Sandwich, s. of Richard, m. 26 Oct. 1675, Patience Skiff, d. perhaps, of James of the same, had Nathan, Elisha, Elizabeth Abigail, Bathsheba, Hannah, and Mary, but as no date is giv. for any one, I fear we can hardly be sure of the order of success. He d. 1706. GARRETT, or JARRARS, or GERALD, or GERARD, or JARRETT, perhaps JARED, Boston, in the employm. of Elder William Colborne in June 1634, when adm. to the ch. possib. came with him, 1630, freem. 6 May 1535[?], had John, b. 30 July 1643, d. next mo. but the rec. of his bapt. at Roxbury, 6 Aug. calls him Gerard, as does the town rec. of b. at R. and on 30 May foll. his w.
