CHAD, Providence, came first to Boston, in July 1638, in the Martin, as bef. dep.-gov. Dudley, he swore, in support of a nuncup. will of a fellow passeng. dying, on the ocean; was sett. at the Bapt. ch. 1642 after Roger Williams. It has been thot. by some, that he was earlier on our side of the water, and that imperfect rec. proves it, on p. 14 of the Vol. 1. of Col. Rec. of R. I. as to his incorp. in town fellowsh. with others at Providence, wh. bears date 20 Aug. without a yr. Now the supplying, of the numerals for the yr. call admit those wh. the transcriber used, 1637, by no means; for that day was Sunday, when no civil compact could have been enter. into, and bef. that day in the former yr. the place was kn. as Moshasuck, prob. the sec. use of the designat. of the mod. city being, in the foll. mo. at the bapt. of the s. of Roger Williams, Providence, late in Sept. 1638.

The other four were James, Jeremiah, Judah, alias Chad, and Daniel. No connex. is trac. betw. Chad and Henry, of the oldest proprs. His gr.ch. James was min. of the same ch.

He may be the man, wh. m. 14 Feb. 1654, Elizabeth Okley, or Oakley, if we suppose the date of bapt. of [[vol. 1, p. 266]] first ch. too early by 4 yrs. or this not to be the first w.

Endicot took the requisite o.) in Mar. of that yr. to emb. with Samuel his br. in the fleet with Higginson; came in May, reach. S. in June, and soon after, they wish. to foll. the Episc. form of service, caus. such a schism, that Endicot sent them home in the returning sh. and in Sept. or Oct. they were again at London, and came not to our country any more. See the candid views of Eliot, Eccl. Hist. of Mass. in 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. IX. 3 and 4. That JOHN, whose d. 25 Feb. 1687, is ment. in early rec. of New Hampsh. "aged 98 yrs." may possib. have gain. such reputa. by his f. hav. done some brave act against the Spanish enemy even later than the Armada yr. to wh. wild tradit. refer. the b. of his s. JOHN, Watertown 1632, arr. 16 Sept. at Boston, from London, in the Lion; freem. 3 Sept. 1634, by w. Dorothy had Hannah, b. 10 Sept. 1634; and Mary, 24 Mar. 1637; and he was bur. 20 June of that yr. aged 36. By prob. geneal. he was s. of John of Hawkedon, Co. Suffk. in that ch. bapt. 11 Oct. 1601, and so neph. of Abraham and Richard. 

JOHN, Plymouth, had acquaint. with the Pilgr. at Leyden bef. 1620, but his yr. of com. is unkn. liv. in 1636 at Duxbury; in 1643 at Taunton; Assist. for 17 yrs. from 1636, and serv. as Commissnr. of the Unit. Col. from 1644 for 12 yrs. had James, above ment.; and Mary, wh. m. 6 July 1636, Thomas Willet; perhaps more, certain. John, and d. at Swanzey, near Rehoboth, where he had large est. 10 Apr. 1662. His will, made three days bef. provides for the five ch. that his s. John left to [[vol. 1, p. 270]] his care, and names s. James, and w. Dorothy excors. also names d. Mary Willet, and gr.d. Martha, w. of John Saffin, d. of Willet. His wid. Dorothy d. at Swanzey, 27 Jan. 1674, aged 90. See Davis, in Morton's Mem. 295-7. JOHN, Salem 1637, freem. 2 May 1638, rul. elder of the ch. had John, bapt. Sept. 1638; and James, June 1640; d. 1685. JOHN, Hampton 1639, d. 28 Feb. 1687, a 98 yrs. as is said. Much more prob. is the age set against his name, 40, on hid embark. 17 apr. 1635, at the London custom ho. especially if he be that baker, whose fellow-passeng. were two serv. James Walker, aged 15, and Sarah Walker, 17, the latter of wh. in 1640, bec. his w. as descend. suppose. By what I think the wrong statement, he was b. 1589, and this maiden was b. 1618. Beside the number and dates of his ch. disprove or make highly improb. the great age : Sarah; John, b. 1644; Elizabeth; Benjamin; Jacob, 1653; Mary, 13 Sept. 1655; Thomas, 14 July 1657; and Stephen, 1659, wh. was k. by the Ind. at Scarborough 29 June 1677. 

JOHN, Maine 1641, s. of Richard of Barton Regis. Co. Glouster, m. Margaret, d. of Francis Hayward of the City of Bristol, as he told Robert Allen of Sheepscot, for R. A. so swore on 21 Feb. 1659 at Bristol, Eng. (as there rec.) that he kn. for 17 yrs. J. B. of Newharbor, a mason, and that he was in good health in N. E. June preced.

Hannah m. 7 Jan. 1676, her cousin Hezekiah Willet. JOHN, Ipswich 1641, may hav come in the Elizabeth, 1635, aged 40, from London, or have been the tailor from Badstow, in Essex, near Chelmsford, in the Defense, from London, 1635, aged 27.

Esther, s. John, Thomas, Daniel, and Joseph, d. Deborah of Jeremiah Meacham, and s.-in-law John Gustin, wh. had m. 10 Jan. 1678, Elizabeth; John Adams, Thomas Darley, or Darby, and John Hartshorn, are ment. JOHN, Providence, wh. sw. alleg. in May 1666, may be the same as bef. ment. but ano. John of P. sw. alleg. in May 1682. JOHN, Salem, s. of Elder John, m. 2 June 1658, Hannah, d. of Rev.

Mary, d. of Obadiah Holmes, the sufferer by the Mass. persecut. Had John, b. 18 Mar. 1662; James, 1666; Obadiah, Martha, and Deborah. John, Hampton, s. of John the first of the same, had a farm giv. 1666 by his f. at the Falls, and so may be suppos. to have m. bef. the Ind. war of Philip, in wh. he serv. longer time than any other man of his town; but no w. or ch. is kn. and he d. 29 Aug. 1683.

 JOHN, Salem, m. 27 Jan. but by ano. acco. 30 June 1669, Hannah, d. of Francis Collins, had Priscilla, b. 1 June 1669; Margaret, 23 Apr. 1671; Joseph, 11 Sept. 1673; William, 1 Dec. 1677; Hannah, 22 July 1678; and Mary, 4 Jan. 1692; but some confus. evid. appears in rec. of dates of one or two. He was, perhaps, rep. for Marblehead, under the new chart. 1692, and for Salem 1707, 9, and 13; may have d. 14 Apr. 1719. JOHN, a passeng. emb. in Eng. 16 May 1679 on the Prudence for Boston, may have never arr. or soon went home, or sat down in some other town, or [[vol. 1, p. 272]] (wh. is the least likely), he might have gone home to purchase goods in Eng. for trade here. JOHN, Duxbury, by w. Ann had Ann, b. 19 Sept. 1673; and John, 1675; was a bapt. JOHN, Swanzey or Rehoboth, a capt. s. of John, and gr.s. of Hon. John of the same, m. 8 Nov. 1672, Ann, d. of maj.

He was, I suppose, the man whose ho. was assail. by the Ind. on 7 Oct. 1695, and nine persons carr. into captiv. but all by fresh pursuit were retak. tho. some d. of wounds. See Coffin, 161, 2, and strange incidents of the case in Niles, 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VI. 238. JOHN, York 1680.
