V. 63, the surname is giv. (whose correctness is doubt. by scrupul. readers of the orig. rec. when the bapt. name is Susanna alone, not as print. "Su Sage;" and beside the date of the m. is not clear on that rec.) had (he says) John, b. 25 July 1645; (yet high [[vol. 1, p. 26]] authority advises me, that the oldest ch. was prob.

THOMAS, one of the comp. of Capt. Lathrop, call. "the flower of Essex," k. in the fight at "Bloody brook," 18 Sept. 1675. Of this name, in 1828, Farmer notes the gr. at Yale were two, none at other N. E. coll. but eleven at N. J. and Union Coll. Yet he might have found one at Dart.

He had favor. the party of Wheelwright, and under the name of Mr. Alfoot on the rec. in 1637, was disarm. by the Gen. Ct. and thereupon rem. for a season to New Haven, and there had, prob. two or more of his ch. b bef. 1654. See Haz. II. 247. Yet he came back to Mass. but liv. at Boston; and by ano. w. Ann had John, b. 29 Nov. 1658, wh. d. at 2 mos. He d. Jan. 1677, was bur. 13th of that mo. being Saturday. The will of 13 Apr. with codic. 9 July 1676, names no s. as then liv. but he gives £.50 to ch. of his s. Nathaniel, if now alive, and £10 to wid. of s. Elisha, and made Extrix. his d. Mary, that had been w. of Peter Butler, and next of Hezekiah Usher, and had four ch. and ment. ds. Bethia, and Elizabeth wh. had m. 1 Dec 1659, Nathaniel Hudson. The whole of the debt of Hudson Leverett, and half of those of other poor debtors are remit. by it; and the codic. was made, because his d. Mary had bec. w. of Hezekiah Usher, wh. was then d. She took third h. Samuel Nowell, outliv. him, and d. 14 Aug. 1693.
ALGER, ANDREW, Scarborough, 1651, had w. Agnes, and ch. John; Andrew; and Matthew; Elizabeth wh. m. John Palmer; Joanna, wh. m. Elias Oakman, and, next, John Mills, both of Boston; beside a third d. wh. m. John Ashton, or Austin. He had call. his planta. Dunster, from the town near Minehead, in the N. W. part of Co. Somerset, where he was b. was constable 1661, and lieut. k. by the Ind. with his br. Arthur, Oct. 1675. The fam. fled to Boston, his will was pro. in Essex 24 June foll. and his wid. m. Samuel Walker. See Folsom, 156; and Willis, I. 139, wh. obs. that, in our days, the est. of the Southgate fam. includes part of the Alger domain. ANDREW, Falmouth, s. of the preced. was k. by the Ind. when they destroy. the town 1690, leav. only ch. the wife, it is said, of Matthew Collins.
ARTHUR, Scarborough, br. of the first Andrew, perhaps elder, perhaps was f. of that Arthur, jr. wh. own. alleg. to Mass. 1658; was constable 1658, rep. to Boston, 1671, when the Secretary makes his name Angurs, and 1672, when he cuts off the final [[vol. 1, p. 28]] letter, was k. by the Ind. 14 Oct. 1675, with his br. leav. wid. Ann, and childr. but their names are not told. See Hubbard's Hist. of N. E. 600, and Willis, as above. ISRAEL, BridgeWater, S. of Thomas, m. Patience, d. of Nathaniel Hayward of the same, had Israel, b. 1689; Joseph, 1691; Thomas,1697; Nathaniel, 1700; and John, 1704. JOHN, Scarborough, s. of Andrew the first, had sev. ds. of wh.

Ib. SAMPSON, York, 1649, then of the gr. jury, freem. 1652, constable, 1655. He may have been relat. of the foregoing fam. but the name is variously writ. the sec. letter often being U, agreeing with the sound, and when it is n, looking doubtful, whether Anger, or Angier, as by the scrupulous Paige in Geneal. Reg. III. 193, or Angur, as by the same hand on the next page, or Augur, as the same MS. is read by the Editor of Mass. Col. Rec. IV. pt. I. page 358. THOMAS, Taunton, 1665, m. 14 Nov. of that yr. Elizabeth d. of Samuel Packard, had Israel, and Deliverance, perhaps others, bef. or after rem. to Bridgewater. Mitchell shows, in his Hist. that most of this name in that vicin. call him their anc. TRISTRAM, Scarborough.
ALISET, or ALLISET, JOHN, Boston 1689, chos. an overseer of cord wood, as also in 1691, yet not found among taxab. inhab. of 1695.
ALLARD, HUGH, New Hampsh. 1674. One Elizabeth A. m. 10 Dec. 1634, Robert Seaver at Roxbury; and this may well be thot. mistake for Ballard, as the ch. rec. has it; yet no Ballard is kn. in R. so early by many yrs. and a Mrs. Allard d. there 11 Aug. 1717, but she may have been a Huguenot of later importa.
ALLARE, LOUIS, Boston, a Huguenot, adm. inhab. 1 Feb. 1692, but in 1695 not seen.

BENJAMIN, Groton 1674, may have been a soldier next yr. in Moseley's comp. for the Dec. campaign.

Timothy Palmer; and Mary, of wh. nothing is told. EDWARD, Dedham, perhaps nephew of Edward Alleyn of the same, may have been that Edward of Boston, a tailor, wh. m. 7 May 1652, Martha Way, had Sarah, b. 22 Aug. 1653; and John, 8 June 1657. EDWARD, Dover 1675, was s. of Hope of Boston, as such, sold 13 Nov. 1678, large est. at Falmouth, now Portland, devis. to him from his f. after dilig. inquiry I can learn no more of him. ELEAZER, emb. 27 May 1679 in the Prudence and Mary, to come to Boston from Eng. but his visit may have been only a trans. one, or he may have gone beyond the bounds of N. E. at least we never again find his name.

Matthew, Henry, Samuel, and William, beside "five least ch." not nam. and made w. Catharine Extrix. His ho. built, 1646, it is said, is in good repair, and still occup. GEORGE, Sandwich 1643, perhaps s. of the preced. b. in Eng. then in the list of those able to bear arms; may have been of Newport 1639, and at S. had (by w.

GIDEON, Swanzey 1669, rem. to Boston during Philip's war, and after it to Milford, there was a promin. man, and d. early in 1693. At Swanzey, [[vol. 1, p. 31]] by w.

ISAAC, Rehoboth, m. 30 May 1673, Mary Bowen, perhaps d. of Henry, had Isaac, b. 3 Jan. 1675; Catharine, 18 Jan. of uncert. yr. the rec. being partially worn away.

He d. 27 Sept. 1673. Some reason is perceiv. for holding this man to be br. of Rev. John Allin of Dedham.
JAMES, Boston, one of the eject. min. was s. of a min. in Hampsh. and b. 24 June 1632, as is told, ent. of Magdalen Hall, 16 Mar. 1649, and of New Coll. Oxford, procced. A.

[[vol. 1, p. 32]] and Sarah, 11 Sept. 1679, wh. d. at 3 yrs. After some yrs. preach. there, he was sett. in the midst of gr. disquiet, at the first ch. on the same day, with Davenport (9 Dec. 1668), in vindicat. of those charact. he was long a strenuous oppon. of the third, or O. S. ch. that sprang, out of the unhappy circumst. by wh. he was brot. from New Haven. His last w. d. 25 Nov. 1705, and he d. 22 Sept. 1710. Dunton says, his s. James was a min. in England d. at Northampton, but perhaps he is wrong, for he was young, and our Coll. Catal. never gave him the Italics, tho. it marks him as Socius. See 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. II. 101 and 3 M. H. C. VIII. 250. Both of the Biogr. Dict. Eliot, briefly, and Allen, more at large, explain the difficult. of his course. JAMES, Sandwhich, perhaps s. of George the first, had Amey, b. 22 Dec. 1665; and Abigail, 28 Sept. 1667, and prob. sev. others, yet it may be that some were b. after rem. to Tisbury, had w.

JEREMIAH, Salisbury, s. of William the first of the same. took o. of alleg. 2 Dec. 1677, m. 1686, Ann, prob. d. of Thomas Bradbury. JOHN, Plymouth 1633, was perhaps of Scituate, 1646, there d. 1662, prob. Sept. as his inv. bears date 25 of that mo. leav. wid. Ann and s. John; but his nuncup. will, made two days bef. his d. in wh. one ho. is giv. to Josiah Litchfield (then a youth) in wh. the testator liv. and ano. to his w. was not pro. until 2 June of next yr. and that would now-a-days seem a dangerous delay. See Geneal. Reg. VI. 94. JOHN, Dorchester 1632, kept an inn, and was punish. for drunkenness of those to wh. that yr. he sold.
JOHN, Charleston, came, perhaps, in the Abigail, 1635, aged 30, with w. Ann, 30, from some part of Kent, join. the ch. 22 May 1641, and was adm. freem. 2 June next; by w. Sarah had John, b. 16 Oct. 1640, bapt. 30 May foll.; Sarah, b. 11 Aug. 1642, d. at 4 mos.; Mary, 6 Feb. 1644; and perhaps others, certain. Elizabeth and Rebecca bef.

Mary m. perhaps Nathan Rainsford, and next Joshua Hobart. Elizabeth m. 11 Mar. 1674, Nathan Hayman, and Rebecca m. 28 Mar. 1678, John Goodrich of Wethersfield. See Budington, 249. By Sewall he is call. br. of Rev. Thomas, if such be the mean. of the interleav. Almanac, giv. in Geneal. Reg. VII. 206. John, Springfield 1639, then tax. there, rem. soon, perhaps to Rehoboth 1643, and to Newport 1651, thence to Swanzey 1669. Certain. one John at Newport m. 10, or 14 Oct. 1650, Elizabeth Bacon, perhaps sis. of Nathaniel of Barnstable, there had Elizabeth b. July 1651; Mary, 4 Feb. 1653; John, Nov. 1654; Mercy, Dec. 1656; Priscilla, Dec. 1659; and Samuel, Apr. 1661.

Reg. IX. 357, a mark is transpos. as much I suspect, or the ch. rec. is careless, as very frequent. we kn. it is. But the true name is Alling (not Allen), in the first generat. as in later ones. See Alling. JOHN, Northampton, s. of Samuel, m. 8 Dec. 1669, Mary, d. of William Hannum, rem. to Deerfield, there was k. by the Ind. 18 Sept. 1675, the day of Bloody brook, leav. three ch.

Constant d. 10 days after, I suppose, tho. by rec. it seems 27 Apr. He m. 14 Dec. foll. Frances Hill of Milton; but I fear the name should be Austin. Ano. Jonah of Taunton, on Col. rec. call. junr. had Esther, b. 3 Jan. 1663, unless there be confus. of names or dates. Joseph, Medfield 1649. JOSEPH, Salem, had w.
