BUCKLEY, JOSEPH, Boston, merch. m. Joanna, d. of Richard Shute, wid. of Nathaniel Nichols, perhaps in 1688, had Joseph, bapt. 5 Apr. 1691; and Richard, b. 5 Oct. 1695, both bapt. at Charlestown; and by his will of 24 Nov. 1700, pro. 19 Mar. 1702, provides for that w. during her life to have his dw. ho. wh. had been giv. him by f.-in-law, but to s. Joseph, the eldest, Richard, and Thomas, £300. ea. as he comes to 21 yrs. THOMAS, a soldier of Lothrop's comp. k. 18 Sept. 1675, at Bloody brook. In this form often appears the more disting. name of Bulkly.

BUCKLINE, JOHN, Rehoboth, bur. 20 June 1677, as was NEHEMIAH, 19 May preced. Perhaps they were ch. of Joseph Buckland. STEPHEN, Bristol, in Feb. 1689, had w. and two ch.

BUCKMAN, JOHN, Boston, by w. Hannah had Hannah, b. 5 July 1653. One of this name was a soldier in Moseley's comp. Dec. 1675. See under Bucknam.

BUCKMINISTER, JAMES, Sudbury 1640, an orig. propr. Shattuck. JOSEPH, Boston, s. of Thomas, by w. Elizabeth d. of Hugh Clark; of Watertown, had Joseph, b. 31 July, bapt. 23 Sept. 1666; and the f. d. 20 Nov. 1668. His posthum. d. Elizabeth was bapt. 10 Jan. foll. In his rec. Eliot calls him Buckmaster; the resid. being at Muddy riv. Roxbury rec. contain no m. b. or d. tho. convenience of worship took him and his fam. to the ch. there. The wid; Elizabeth d. at Framingham, where her s. liv. from wh. by w. Martha, d. of John Sharp, m. 12 May 1686, descend the disting. stock of this name. THOMAS, Scituate, perhaps gr.s. of that Thomas, whose Almanac, comput. for 1599, in his 67th yr. is now bef. me, rem. to Boston, where on the ch. rec. of his adm. 4 Oct. 1645, "upon let. of dism. from the ch. of Scituate" (his w. Joan being rec.the same day), he is call. laborer; but the spell. in both cases is as in our day. Yet it is strange that Deane omits the name. He liv. at what is now Brookline, prob. worship. at Roxbury, where Hannah, bapt. 28 June 1646, may have been his d. and have d. young. He was freem. 1646, and d. 28 Sept. 1656; in his will of 2 Sept. pro. 23 Nov. in that yr. ment. w. Joanna, s. Zechariah, ds. Elizabeth w. of Thomas Spowell, Mary, w. of Henry (as Barry thinks was his name) Stevens, Dorcas, of Clement Corbin, or Corbett, s. Thomas, Joseph, and Jabez, d. Spowell's two ch., d. Stevens's two ch., d. Corbin's ch., Zechary's ch. and, last, d. Sarah. A s. Lawrence, prob. the eldest, had made his will, 27 Nov. 1645, bound to sea, perhaps d. bef. ret. as it was pro. 4 July after. He is presum. from it to have been unm. See Geneal. Reg. III. 178. Dorcas had m. 7 Mar. 1655, the same day with her br. Zechariah; and Sarah m. 30 Sept. 1657, John Lawrence. Jabez was prob. m. and d. Sept. 1686. The wid. m. 1 Sept. 1661, Edward Garfield of [[vol. 1, p. 287]] Watertown. THOMAS, Boston, a carpenter, s. of the preced. d. Dec. 1659, leav. wid. Mary. Inv. of his est. amt. to £39. 16. ZECHARIAH, Boston, br. of the preced. m. 7 Mar. 1655, Sarah Webb, had prob. sev. ch. rem. among early sett. to Sherborn, there d. after 1691. His wid. Sarah d. at Roxbury 27 June 1704.

BUCKMAN, JOSES, Malden, s. of William, by w. Judith Worth, m. 1 May 1673, had Samuel, b. Apr. 1674; Judith, 7 Aug. 1676; Sarah, 1680; Mary; Susanna, 8 Aug. 1685; William, 22 Feb. 1688; Edward, 22 May 1692; and Lydia, posthum. 23 Mar. 1695; and d. 24 Aug. 1694. But by a former w. prob. d. of George Knower, he had Joses, b. Jan. 1667; Hannah, Aug. 1669; and Elizabeth and prob. John. His wid. m. John Lynde. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1647, on the Mistick side, wh. bec. Malden, had by first w. only ch. John; and by sec. w. Sarah had Joses, b. 1641; Elizabeth 1644; Mercy, 14 Feb. 1648; Sarah, July 1650; William, Aug. 1652; Mehitable, Aug. 1654; Edward, Sept. 1657; Samuel, wh. d. 13 Sept. 1658, prob. a few hours old; and Samuel, again, Feb. 1660; and d. early in 1679. Elizabeth m. Benjamin Whittemore, and d. 18 July 1726; Mercy m. 7 Dec. 1669, Benjamin Webb; Mehitable m. Samuel Waite; and Sarah m. 24 July 1676, Samuel Shattuck. WILLIAM, Malden, s. of the preced. m. 11 Oct. 1676, Hannah Waite, had no ch. and d. 17 Sept. 1693, giv. all his prop. to w. by his will. A John Buckman, perhaps the same name, was of Boston 1673, was prob. gr.ch. of Prudence Wilkinson, and of first William. Of him, I presume, it is, that Sewall, in his Diary, under 30 Oct. 1696, relates, that he had been perfectly dumb for eighteen yrs. and had his speech restor. It is almost certain that he was the first s. of the first William, wh. in his will, explain. why he gave him so small a portion was, bec. he had been infirm from early youth, and was tak. by his gr.mo.

BUCKNELL, SAMUEL, Boston, m. 18 Sept. 1654, Sarah, d. of Nathaniel Bishop, had Sarah, b. 17 May 1655, wh. d. next yr; Nathaniel, 1 June 1659.

BUCKNER, CHARLES, Dover, sch.master 1657, rem. in few yrs. to Boston, had w. Mary.

BUDD, EDWARD, Boston 1668, and sev. yrs. bef. a carver. JOHN, New Haven 1639, liv. some yrs. at Southold, on L. I. as a freem. of Conn. a lieut. 1661, and rep. for Greenwich 1664, and for the Unit. Col. of Conn. 1666, and after. He was rep. for Milford in 1677, Trumbull, II. 318, then call. him Bird. JONATHAN, New Haven 1643, had fam. of six, and rem. but to what place is unkn.

BUDDINGTON, BODINGTON or BUDINGTON, WALTER, Stonington 1668, rem. to New London, and d. 1689, leav. no ch. but his nearest of kin was Walter, a neph. constable at N. L. 1695, on Groton side.

BUDLEY, ANDREW, Ipswich, prob. s. of Giles of the same, m. 14 Mar. [[vol. 1, p. 288]] 1682, Mary Conant, whose f. is not kn. but no doubt she was gr. d. of Roger the first, had Rebecca, b. 29 Mar. 1683; Andrew, 5 Apr. 1686, d. at 4 mos.; Martha, 3 Mar. 1692, d. next yr.; Andrew, again 15 June 1694; Martha, again, 28 Apr. 1696; Sarah, 6 Oct. 1698; and Elizabeth 25 Aug. 1700; but perhaps the mo. of this last was Rebecca. He d. 1 Feb. 1718, aged 60 yrs. Rebecca m. Robert Kinsman. GILES Ipswich 1648, of wh. we learn from his will of 18 July 1668, pro. 29 Sept. foll. most of the little we kn. that he left w. Elizabeth and ch. Andrew, b. 5 Sept. 1657; James, 10 Feb. 1660; and John, perhaps youngest, for he had Giles, 13 July 1662, wh. prob. d. bef. his f. JAMES, Ipswich, s. of the preced. m. 25 May 1685, Rebecca Stacey, perhaps d. of Thomas and she d. 21 Oct. 1686; but by w. Elizabeth he had William, b. 27 Feb. 1693; Joseph, 6 Apr. 1695; and Thomas, 5 Apr. 1697. Some confus. of this name with Burley occurs on the rec. wh. is also giv. in the Coll. catal. and it is seen, also, Birdley; yet in mod. times it is, I suppose, writ. Burleigh.

BUDLONG, FRANCIS, Warwick, m. 19 Mar. 1669, Rebecca, wid. of Joseph Howard, d. prob. of John Lippit, and John, and other ch., bef. or after, or both, was k. with his w. and all the fam. exc. John, by the Ind. Nov. 1675, wh carr. John away, but soon restor. him. JOHN, Warwick, s. of the preced. had three s. John, Moses, and Daniel, wh. was less than 21 Yrs. old; beside ds. Rebecca Pierce, Mary Pierce, and Isabel, under 18 yrs. as we learn from his will of 4 Oct. 1731. He liv. to 1744.

BUELL, PETER, Windsor, s. of William, rem. 1670 to Simbury, d. 8 Jan. 1729, had Samuel, Ephraim, William, and Jonathan, beside seven ds. He had sec. w. Mary, wid. of Jacob Bissell, but wh. was the first w. is unkn. or how many of his ch. were by her is uncert. yet as this w. was not m. bef. 1698, it is highly prob. that she was not mo. of all his ch. The ds. were Abigail, Martha, Mary, Sarah, Hannah, Miriam, and Esther. These are all nam. as well as w. in his will of 28 June bef. his d. but some were not liv. SAMUEL, Windsor, eldest br. of the preced. m. 13 Nov. 1662, Deborah Griswold, d. of Edward, and rem. to Killingworth, had, beside Samuel, b. 20 July 1663, at W. and at K. had Deborah, 18 Oct. 1665; Hannah, 6 Sept. 1667, d. young; Mary, 28 Nov. 1669; John, 17 Feb. 1672; Hannah, again, 4 May 1674; William, 18 Oct. 1676; David, 15 Feb. 1679; Josiah, 16 Mar. 1681; Mehitable, 22 Aug. 1682; Peter, 3 Dec. 1684; and Benjamin, 1686. His w. d. 7 Feb. 1719, and he d. 11 July 1720. WILLIAM, Windsor, one of the first. sett. by w. Mary, m. 18 Nov. 1640, had Samuel, above ment. b. 2 Sept. 1641; Mary, 3 Sept. 1642; Peter, 19 Aug. 1644; Hannah, 8 Jan. 1647; Hepzibah, 11 Dec. 1649; Sarah, 21 Mar. 1653 or 4; and Abigail, 12 Feb. 1656; d. 16 Nov. 1681; and his wid. d. 2 Sept. 1684. [[vol. 1, p. 289]] His will, of 26 July 1681, names the two s. and d. Mary, but refers to others; and the will of the wid. 29 Aug. 1684, names d. Mary Mills, m. 23 Feb. 1660; Sarah was d. unm. and Abigail is not nam. prob. d. young; Hannah m. 17 Sept. 1663, Timothy Palmer; Hepzibah m. 12 Jan. 1673, Thomas Welles of Hatfield. WILLIAM, Salisbury, but whether bef. or after Oct. 1650, I kn. not. He and his w. were at that time indict. in Plymouth col. as Bapt. Baylies, II. 211.

BUFFINGTON, BENJAMIN, Salem, s. of Thomas, had Benjamin, b. 4 May 1699, and two other s. JOHN, Salem 1676. THOMAS, Salem spelt Bovanton, m. 30 Dec. 1671, Sarah Southwick, perhaps d. more prob. gr.d. of Lawrence of the same, had Thomas, b. 1 Mar. 1672; Benjamin, 24 July 1675; and Abigail, 25 July 1695. THOMAS, Salem, eldest s. of the preced. m. 28 Feb. 1699, Hannah Ross, had sev. ch. whose names are not seen.

BUFFUM, CALEB, Salem, s. prob. of the first Robert, m. 26 Mar. 1672, Hannah, d. of the first Joseph Pope, had Caleb, b. 14 May 1673; and Robert, 1 Dec. 1675. JOSEPH, Salem, perhaps br. of the preced. had Joseph. His w. was punish. 1658 for attend. a Quaker meeting, with her s. and perhaps she was again punish. 1662, with her d. w. of Robert Wilson, and her sis. Smith, Perhaps w. of James or John. Felt. JOSHUA, Salem, eldest s. of Robert, perhaps br. of the preced. by w. Damaris, d. of Joseph Pope, had Joseph; was banish. 1659, on pain of d. Prob. the sentence could not be carr. into effect, but he went to Eng. and got security against such monstrous injust. ROBERT, Salem 1638, is said to have come from Yorksh. in 1634, but perhaps the yr. is too early, as Felt first saw ment. of him in 1638. Perhaps he was f. of all the preced. had w. Thomasin, and d. Mary, wh. m. 22 Sept. 1673, Jeremiah Neal. His will was refus. pro. bec. the witnesses would not sw. but only affirm. Inv. of his est. was tak. 15 Nov. 1669.

BUGBY, EDWARD, Roxbury, came in the Francis from Ipswich 1634, aged 40, with w. Rebecca, 32, and d. Sarah, 4: had Joseph, b. 6 June 1640; and a ch. b. and d. Aug. 1642, acc. town rec. He join, the ch. Aug. 1665, "an old man," says the rec. and when he d. 27 Jan. 1669, "aged, as is said, above 80," I suppose, no discredit of the report is intend. His will, of 26 Nov. preced. names only s. Joseph, and Sarah, w. of Richard Chamberlain, wh. is made excor. EDWARD, Roxbury, by w. Abigail, d. of Richard Hall, had Abigail, b. 1 Oct. 1694; John, 2 Oct. 1696, d. 29 Jan. 1703; and other ch. in his will, 23 Jan. 1703, pro. next mo. he refers to, but does not name, more than John. His f. is not kn. JOHN, Roxbury, had w. Joanna, wh. d. 11 July 1690; and he d. 16 Jan. 1704, in his will names ch. John, Thomas, Mary, and Joanna. Thomas, b. Apr. 1668, had fam. JOSEPH, Roxbury, s. of the first Edward, by w. Experience, d. of Andrew Pitcher, had Joseph, b. 17 Sept. [[vol. 1, p. 290]] 1664; Rebecca, 16 Sept. 1666; Edward, 31 Jan. 1669; Samuel, 31 Aug. 1673; Abigail, 16 Nov. 1676; Mehitable, 20 Aug. 1679; Jonathan, 23 May 1682; and Josiah, 2 Nov. 1684. RICHARD, Roxbury, came in the fleet with Winthrop prob. and req. adm. as freem. 19 Oct. 1630, was sw. 18 May 1631, had w. Judith, both of the very early mem. of the ch. He d. bef. 1641, and his wid. m. Robert Parker, and had John, bapt. 27 Mar. 1642, yet the town rec. does not ment. his time of d.

BULGAR, RICHARD, Boston, came, prob. in the fleet with Winthrop freem. 18 May 1631, had John, bapt. 20 Apr. 1634; was of the party of Mrs. Hutchinson, and of so much conseq. at Roxbury as to be diarm. went first to R. I. in 1638 with Coddington, but next yr. to Exeter. He was a bricklayer. Belkn. I. 20. I believe he went back to R. I. and there was 71 yrs. old in 1679.

BULFINCH, JOHN, Salem 1640, freem. 18 May 1642. Ann, adm. of the ch. 1641, perhaps was his w. He rem. from S. aft. 1644, but whither is not kn. Of this name seven had been gr. at H. C. in 1822, but all of a later stock.

It names seven ch. tak. notice that Thomas was d. yet rememb. his wid.; calls Mr. Samuel Haugh, cous.; and gives his folio bible to Oliver St. John, Ch. Just. of the Com.

Gershom of Wethersfield, wh. was made excor. of this will, but declin. to act. His est. was small, and two neph. John and Joseph, wh. resid. at F. undertook admin. and soon gave it up. No small dexterity is need. to avoid confus. betw. the Peter of Edward, the Peter of Gershom, wh. I intentional. omit, and the Peter of Peter, wh. is entit. to a place here, as s. of one wh. came from Eng. THOMAS, Concord, s. of the first Peter, b. in Eng. freem. 13 Mar. 1639, m. Sarah d. of Rev.

It is believ. the other ch. d. young. HENRY, Roxbury, came in the James from London, 1635, aged 25, freem. 17 May 1637, rem. to Boston, by fam. tradit. is deriv. from South Wales; and less worthy tradit. makes him br. of Thomas of Conn.; the Roxbury ch. rec. says, "being weak and affectionate, was tak. and transport. with the opin. of familism, &c. as may be seen in that story," wh. the Roxbury min. Welde, hims. produc. He was among the Boston majority of heretics disarm. went to R.

From a part of Saybrook rec. giv. in Geneal. Reg. V. 249, it may be infer. that his s. John went to Eng. sett. in Co.

BULLARD, BENJAMIN, Watertown, a. 1642, as Bond, 147, gathers, but Morse finds him at div. of lds. in 1637, m. a d. of Henry Thorpe, rem. to Medfield, freem. 1668, perhaps had s. Benjamin by a former w. and he may have been, tho. prob. not, b. in Eng. Of this s. (by former or later w.) sis. are nam. Ann and Maudlin, yet the mo. has no name; and no approach to reasonab. conject. as to the time of his d. is offer. by Morse, while Bond had confus. f. and s. BENJAMIN, Dedham, s. of the preced. m. 1659, Martha Pidge, d. of Thomas, had Mary, b. 14 Sept. 1663, d. young; Samuel, 26 Dec. 1667; Benjamin, 1 Mar. 1670; Hannah, 6 Aug. 1672; and Eleazer, 27 June 1676.

ISAAC, Dedham, s. of the first William b. in Eng. m. 11 Apr. 1655.

Ano. ISAAC is sometimes suppos. to have been at Watertown bef. 1636, on of the seven or eight mythical brs. but, if any thing more than shadow, he early d. or went home; and of ano. ISAAC, presum. s. of John, the notice is too slight to found upon. 

JOHN, Dedham 1638, perhaps eldest s. of the first William, but Morse thinks him. br. of William, freem. 13 May 1640, by w. Magdalen had Abigail, b. 8 Oct. 1641; Joseph, 26 Apr. 1643; and Hannah, 1 Oct. 1645, or, but ano. acco. 1 Feb. 1646.

ROBERT, Watertown, bur. 24 June 1639, was aged 40, and h. of Ann, but no more of him was discov. by Bond. But he suppos. him to be br. of Benjamin, George, Maudlin, and Ann. SAMUEL, Dedham, eldest s. of Isaac of the same, m. 1683, Hannah, perhaps d. of James Thorpe, and rem. to Dorchester. THOMAS, Northampton 1668. WILLIAM, Dedham 1636, freem. 13 May 1640, had Isaac, Nathaniel, Elizabeth wh. m. Moses Collier of Woodbridge, N. J. and Mary, wh. m. 1650, John Farrington of D. Perhaps some of these were b. in Eng. and he may have had more. By sec. w. Mary, wid of Francis Griswold of Charlestown, where he resid. 1658-77, he had none; and he d. early in 1687, in D. at the ho. of his d. the wid. Farrington. In his will, of 5 July 1679, importing that he was then 85 yrs. old, he names the two ds. and two s. [[vol. 1, p. 296]] tho. the elder s. was d. Prob. he was elder br. of Benjamin or George, or Robert, perhaps of all. WILLIAM, Dedham, s. of Isaac of the same, m. 1697, Elizabeth eldest d. of Robert Avery of the same, had William, b. 1698; Elizabeth 1699; Jemima, 1702; Ann, 1705; and Isaac, 1709; and d. 1746.

EPHRIAM, Sherborn, br. of the preced. had both been of Medfield 1678, by w. Grace had Mary, Ephriam, John, and Grace; but Morse, in his Geneal. p. 20, makes all the four b. after d. of his w.

JOSEPH, Medfield, s. of Samuel, m. 15 Mar. 1675, Abigail Sabin, was freem. 1677, prob. d. without issue, for in his will of 28 Dec. 1703, he names none, but fiv. est. to sev. nephs. and nieces, and makes w. Abigail extrix. SAMUEL, Dedham, freem. 2 June 1641, m. 10 Aug. 1641, Mary d. of Samuel Morse, had Mary, b. 20 July 1642; Samuel, 19 Dec. 1644; Elizabeth 3 Feb. 1647; Joseph, 6 Sept. 1651; Ephraim, 18 July 1653; Meletiah, 15 Sept. 1655; Elisha, 26 Dec. 1657; Eleazer, 26 Apr. 1662, d. in few days; Bethia, 1 Aug. 1664; and John, perhaps bef. the last two. He was a deac. and d. 16 Jan. 1692; and his wid. d. 14 Feb. foll. In hist. of Framingham, Barry, giv. the distrib. of est. 1697, shows, that Mary m. a Clark; Elizabeth m. a Wheelock, but was then d. leav. childr.; Meletiah, m. a Fisher, and was d. leav. childr.; and Bethia m. a Colburn; that Ephriam was d. leav. childr. and that Samuel, Joseph, Elisha, and John, as well as Mary and Bethia were liv.

John Dunton, wh. kn., him in L. act. under Andros, and on the outburst, Apr. 1689, was for his office imprison. yet did not after rem. I suppose he had brot. w. from Eng. [[vol. 1, p. 297]] and kn. that he had d. Hannah, bapt. 3 Jan. 1686, at O. S. but there no other ment. of the name occurs, at least, neither he nor w. is in the print. list of mem. Easi. he assum. the Episcop. form of worship, and soon was one of the two first wardens of King's Chap.

BULLOCK, DAVID (not OVID, as Baylies, II. 217, in str. pervers. gives it), was of Rehoboth 1668.

Sarah m. Mar. 1659, Thomas Durham. As the rec. of M. tells, that "Hannah, wid. of old Edward B. d. 12 Feb. 1693," and that Edward B. d. nine days bef. I presume, that this was her s. not her h.

JOHN, Middleborough, br. prob. eldest, of the preced. had Mary, b. 1671; John, 1673; Samuel, 1676; and James, 1678; may hav. rem. and had more ch. some bef. these foll. b. at Rochester, Sarah, 16 Sept. 1685; Edward, 16 Sept. 1688; and Jeremiah, 24 Aug. 1692.
