BUTTER, or BUTTERS, ISAAC, Medfield, freem. 1666. WILLIAM, Woburn, by w. Rebecca had William, b. 18 Sept. 1689, very soon; William, again, 24 Mar. 1691, d. young; Rebecca, 10 Oct. 1693, d. young; Lydia, 11 June 1695; Rebecca, again, 30 Aug. 1698; and perhaps he rem.

BUTTERFIELD, Benjamin, Charlestown 1638, project. sett. at Woburn 1640, with others, was freem. 1643, had Mary, prob. other ch. (perhaps b. in Eng.) and here Nathaniel, 14 Feb. 1643; Samuel, 17 May 1647; Joseph, 15 Aug. 1649; rem. 1654, to Chelmsford, where his w. Ann d. 19 May 1660. He m. 3 June 1663, Hannah, wid. of Thomas Whittemore of Malden. Prob. he is anc. of the many wh. bear this name in our Co. of Middlesex. JONATHAN, Chelmsford, perhaps s. of [[vol. 1, p. 323]] the preced. d. 3 Apr. 1673. NATHANIEL, Chelmsford, s. perhaps eldest, of Benjamin, freem. 1682. SAMUEL, Springfield 1636, was k. at Saybrook next yr. prob. by the Pequots, as minute. relat. in Winthrop I. 198. Very curious is the coincid. seen in Niles, Ind. but Fr. Wars, as print. 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VI. 279, that ano. Samuel B. of Groton, a. seventy yrs. later, fell in the hds. of the Ind. but far more strange is the mistake, in the large Hist. of Boston, 203, of the author's note, mak. Niles, with wild anachronism, give "the godly young man" k. by the Pequot, 1636, the name of him, wh. two or three generat. later, was tak. not k. by a differ. tribe. Mr. Drake's devotion to Ind. hist. might excite wonder at such an error, that can mislead no careful reader, wh. will instant. perceive the cause of the hallucinat.

BUTTERWORTH, JOHN, Rehoboth 1643, was one of the found. of first Bapt. ch. 1663; in Swanzey. JOHN, Rehoboth, s. perhaps, of the preced. m. 4 Sept. 1674, Hannah Wheaton, whose f. is not told, had Mary, b. 20 Oct. 1677; John, 7 May 1679; and Elizabeth 15 Jan. 1683; perhaps others. NATHANIEL, Groton, perhaps only trans. d. 1682, as Farmer tells. SAMUEL, perhaps of Weymouth, was adm. freem. 13 May 1640, more certain. liv. 1645 at Rehoboth. SAMUEL, Rehoboth, wh. may have been s. of the preced. or of John. of the same, was soldier of Gallop's comp. in the sad exped. of Sir William Phips against Quebec, 1690; but it is not kn. whether he outliv. it.

BUTTOLPH, JOHN, Salem, s. of Thomas, a glover, m. 16 Oct. 1663, Ann, or Hannah, d. of George Gardner, had John, b. 11 Sept. 1664, d. next spring; Jonathan, 2 Nov. 1665, or (by any. version of the numerals in rec.) 9 Apr. 1666; George, 15 Oct. 1667; rem. to Boston, there was freem. 1673; rem. to Wethersfield, and m. after 1687, Susanna, wid. of Nathaniel Sandford of Hartford (unless this was ano. man), and d. 14 Jan. 1693. Other ch. he had, by w. Sarah, at Salem, as John, again, 1 July 1688; Hannah, 9 Dec. 1689; Abigail, James, perhaps more, and left large est. at W. and Boston. THOMAS, Boston, leather-dresser, or glover, came in the Abigail, from London, 1635, aged 32, with w. Ann, 24, had Thomas, b. 12 Aug. 1637, bapt. 29 Sept. 1639, as he and w.had that mo. unit. with our ch.; John, 28, bapt. 29 Feb. 1640; Abigail, 18, bapt. 19 Feb. 1643; and Mehitable, b. 26 Oct. 1651. He was freem. 2 June 1641, constable 1647, and d. 1667. His will of 25 May, pro. 18 June of that yr. is seen in Geneal Reg. XVI. 159, and the wid. liv. to 10 Oct. 1680. Abigail m. 15 Aug. 1660, David Saywell, and, next m. 1673, Thomas Bingley. This name in ch. rec. is Buttall, wh. misled Farmer to count two for one, and is print. Buttels in 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 106. THOMAS, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 5 Sept. 1660, Mary, d. of Nicholas Baxter, had Thomas, b. 5 Oct. 1661, d. young; Thomas, again, 5 Feb. 1663; Mary, 21 Jan. 1665; Abigail, Jan. 1667; and Nicholas, 3 Mar. 1668; and d. Jan. 1669. His wid. m. Joseph Swett. [[vol. 1, p. 324]]

BUTTON, DANIEL, perhaps of Haverhill, s. of Matthias, may have had s. Matthias, and was in Lothrop's comp. k. at Bloody brook battle, 18 Sept. 1675. JOHN, Boston 1633, a miller, freem. 14 May 1634, ar. co. 1643, was a miller in Eng. b. a. 1594, disarm. in 1637, as a favor. of Wheelwright, yet made constable 1640, had w. Grace, wh. d. 9 Mar. 1639. Next yr. he had sec. w. Joan, and a third, in his will of 5 Nov. 1681, is nam. Mary, to wh. he gave most of his prop. exc. £20. to the first ch. "to buy two silver cups." Near 48 yrs. he had been a mem. and his resid. was on Copp's hill, of course near his mill. MATTHAIS, Boston, a Dutchman, by w. Lettice had Mary, bapt. 23 Feb. 1634; and Daniel, 22 Feb. 1635; was of Ipswich 1639, and after at Haverhill, where at gr. age. he d. 1672. Rev. Thomas Cobbet says, he came in 1628, of course with Endicott to Salem. But Mr. Felt perhaps confus. him with Robert. Perhaps his d. Sarah m. 6 Jan. 1674, James Kingsbury. MATTHIAS, Haverhill, perhaps gr.s. of the preced. took o. of alleg. 28 Nov. 1677. PETER, New London, had Peter, b. 1688; Mary, 1689; Matthias, 1692; and d. Eliphal, 1694. ROBERT, Salem, freem. 1642, m. Abigail, d. of wid. Alice Vermaes, had Samuel, bapt. 27 May of that yr.; Abigail, 7 Jan. 1644; Hannah, 21 Dec. 1645, a. five days old; Sarah, 16 Jan. 1648, a. six days old; and Samuel, again, 24 Feb. 1650, a. nine days old. But the three last were b. and bapt. at Boston, where he was a merch. in large business, constable 1650, and d. next yr. in early manhood. His will of 9 Jan. was pro. 3 weeks after, and his wid. m. in Apr. foll. Edward Hutchinson, jr. Abigail m. Joseph Dudson.

BUTTERICK, Samuel, Concord, s. of William, was freem. 1679, and perhaps the same wh. serv. in Appleton's comp. as from Cambridge, was wound. in the gr. swamp fight, 19 Dec. 1675, and on the roll wrote his name Bouterick. WILLIAM, Concord, came, prob. in the Susan and Ellen 1635, aged 18, and he may have come, as Shattuck thot. with Flint, the chief planter of C. as we kn. not what sh. F. came in; yet the est. of F. was so large, that he must have been liable as a subsidy man, so under the Privy council's order not permit. to emb. without special license for the purpose, and to him, as a favorer of puritans, such license might have ben refus. B. m. 1646, Sarah Bateman, wh. d. 1664, perhaps mo. of all his ch. Mary; William; John, b. 21 Sept. 1653, wh. was inhab. of Stow; Samuel, 12 Jan. 1655; Edward, 6 Jan. 1657, wh. d. in few days; Joseph, 29 Dec. 1657; and Sarah. I suppose that in Concord rec. when it tells the b. of Mary, 19 Sept. 1648, and d. 1 Nov. foll. and calls her d. of William and Mary it is a blunder. He was freem. 1647, took sec. w. 1667, Jane Goodenow, possib. wid. of Thomas, wrote his name in three syllab. Butterick, and d. 30 June 1698. WILLIAM, Cambridge, came in the Planter 1635, aged 20, said to be [[vol. 1, p. 325]] from Kingston, on Thames, call. ostler; but it may have been for purpose of deception. He m. I think, Elizabeth d. of John Hastings.

BUTTRY, or BUTTERY, JOHN, Reading, perhaps s. of Nicholas, had John, b. 9 May 1660; and Elizabeth 1 June 1662. NICHOLAS, Cambridge, came, prob. in the James from London 1635, aged 33, with w. Martha, 28, and ch. Grace, 1. This surname is unusual; but when Grace m. 14 Oct. 1653, William Healey, it was spell. Butterice, or Buttress.

BUXTON, ANTHONY, Salem, 1637, by w. Elizabeth had Anthony, b. 6 Sept. 1653, wh. d. at 22 yrs.; Samuel, 14 Aug. 1655, wh. d. at 20 yrs.; James, 8 Aug. 1659, d. young; Thomas, 24 Feb. 1662, d. in few mos.; Joseph, 17 July 1663; and Hannah, 27 Jan. 1666; beside Rachel, that d. on the same day with her br. Samuel; made his will 8 Mar. 1684, and d. soon, leav. wid. and ch. beside the two last nam. Elizabeth w. of Isaac Cook; John; Lydia; Mary; and Sarah. Mary m. 28 Dec. 1672, John Cook. CLEMENT, Stamford 1650, d. 2 Aug. 1657, had ds. Sarah and Unity, beside s. Clement. His wid. Unity m. 22 July 1658, Peter Brown of the same, and next, 9 Mar. foll. m. Nicholas Knapp. JOHN, Salem, s. prob. of Anthony, m. 30 Mar. 1668, Mary Small, had Mary, b. 3 Sept. 1669; Elizabeth 13 Aug. 1672; and John, 29 Nov. 1675. His w. d. 27 Jan. foll. and he d. 16 May 1715, aged a. 71 yrs. He had m. sec. w. 7 Oct. 1677, Elizabeth Holton, d. perhaps of Joseph of Danvers, then call. Salem vill. and had Joseph, 24 Nov. 1678; Sarah, 9 Feb. 1680; Anthony, 24 Feb. 1682; Hannah, 20 Jan. 1685; Rachel, 6 May 1688; Ebenezer, 20 June 1690; Lydia, 16 Oct. 1692; Benjamin, 10 Mar. 1695; James, 28 Sept. 1698; Amos, 12 Feb. 1701; and Jonathan, 25 July 1706. JOSEPH, Salem, s. prob. of Anthony, by w. Esther had Elizabeth b. 17 Nov. 1689; Samuel, 2 May 1691; James, 2 Mar. 1693; John, 25 Feb. 1696; not all at S. however; and at Ipswich, by w. Elizabeth the same man, or his neph. perhaps, had Joseph, 28 May 1709; Abigail, 27 Jan. 1712; and Rachel, 1 May 1714. THOMAS, Salem 1639, a husbandman, d. June 1654.

BYAM, ABRAHAM, Chelmsford, prob. s. of George, was freem. 1682. GEORGE, Salem, freem. 18 May 1642, had Abraham, bapt. 14 Apr. 1644; and Abigail, 7 Jan. preced. was later of Wenham, and from the ch. there dism. to Chelmsford in 1655.

BYFIELD, NATHANIEL, Boston 1674, it is said, was b. 1653, at Long Ditton, Co. Surry, s. of Rev. Richard (wh. bec. a mem. of the famous Westminister Assemb.) and youngest of 21 ch. m. 1675, Deborah, d. of capt. Thomas Clark, wh. d. 1717, had Nathaniel, and four more ch. wh. all, d. young, exc. Deborah, wh. m. 22 Oct. 1696, Edward Lyde. He m. for sec. w. 17 Apr. 1718, Sarah, youngest d. of Gov. Leverett, wh. d. 21 Dec. 1730; was of ar. co. 1679, a prop. and among first sett. of Bristol in Plymouth Col. for wh. he was rep. 1691, and after chart. [[vol. 1, p. 326]] of 1692 for the Unit. Prov. speaker of the ho. 1693, a col. judge of prob. and of com. pleas. for the new County of Bristol, after for Suffk. and judge of the Vice-Admira. as also of his majesty's counc. d. 6 June 1733. See Hutch. II. 211; Baylies, wh. has a valu. note in IV. 53-6; and Coffin's Newbury, 401, 2. Rev. Richard, ment. as min. of Stratford on Avon, 2596, by honest Anthony Wood in his Athenae, was, perhaps, his gr.f. but he does not tell of his acquaint. with Shakespear.

BYLES, JONATHAN, Beverly m. 16 Nov. 1674, Elizabeth d. of John Patch of Salem, had Richard, b. 3 Nov. foll. and perhaps more. JOSIAH, Boston, a sadler, came from Winchester, Co. Hants, with w. Sarah, but bef. com. may have had ch. tho. the date is so uncert. that, I fear, he may hard. be entitl. to room here. Certain. he was in B. 1695, yet not bef. 11 Oct. 1696 did he join with that ch. of whose pastor in 7 yrs. he m. the d. By w. Sarah, says our rec. he had Samuel, bapt. 11 Oct. 1696, wh. d. young; James, b. 7 bapt. 8 Oct. 1699; Sarah, 24, bapt. 28 Sept. 1701, and Samuel, again, 30 Jan. bapt. 7 Feb. 1703, soon aft. wh. the mo. d. For sec. w. he took, 6 Oct. 1703, Elizabeth wid. of William Greenough, f. of Rev. Increase Mather, had Mather, 15, bapt. 16 Mar. 1707, H. C. 1725, a min. of some note, a wit. of remarka. charact. in Boston. RICHARD, Gloucester, eldest ch. of Jonathan, by w. Mary had Charles, b. 1700; Mary, 1702; John, 1704; Martha, 1706; Sarah 1710; Elizabeth 1713; Alexander, 1716; and Jonathan, 1719; rem. to Beverly 1727. His w. d. Jan. 1746; and he d. at gr. age, 23 Feb. 1771.

BYLEY, HENRY, Salisbury, tanner, an orig. sett. 1639, came in the Bevis from Southampton, 1638, aged 26, with sis. Mary, 22. He had liv. at Salisbury, O. E. where he left w. Rebecca, to wh. in let. of 11 Oct. 1638 from Newbury, bef. sett. at S. he wrote of the d. of his only br. but adds, that his sis. and serv. were well. He prays her to come over with Mr. Dow, and other friends, prepar. to come, or with Mr. Peter Noyes, "wh. is now a. to take ship," i. e. to go from here to Eng. to bring his fam. hither; and utters his hope, that she "had been safely deliv. of her ch. and thus made a joyful mo. of childr." but he d. early. His wid. m. 3 Apr. 1641, Mr. John Hall; and third h. 22 July 1650, Rev. William Worcester; and for fourth h. had dep.-gov. Samuel Symonds, outliv. him, and d. 221 July 1695. Coffin, in Geneal. Reg. VI. 246, and 341, has strangely confus. this mo. with her d. Rebecca, wh. m. 15 Dec. 1664, Rev. John Hale. JOHN, perhaps of Salisbury, and br. of the preced. came in the same sh. from Eng. 1638, aged 20.

BYNNS, JONAS, Dover 1654. Coffin.

BYRAM, NICHOLAS, Weymouth 1638, a physician, m. a d. of Abraham Shaw of Dedham; rem. a. 1662 to Bridgewater, was a capt. had sec. w. a sis. of Rev. James Keith, and d. 1687. His d. Abigail, wh. m. 22 or 27 Nov. 1656, Thomas Whitman, of W. and most of the other ch. Nicholas, Ebenezer, Josiah, Joseph, Mary, beside a d. Bass, are believ. to have been of first w. Ano. d. Experience, wh. m. sec. deac. John Willis, was, perhaps, b. by the sec. w. Rev. Eliab, H. C. 1740, min. at Hopewell, N. J. was descend. of Ebenezer. [[vol. 1, p. 327]]

CABELL, GEORGE, Boston, among taxab. inhab. 1695. JOHN, Springfield 1636, had come to N. E. 1631, or earlier, had John, b. 12 Jan. 1641; and soon after rem. to Fairfield, where both f. and s. are in the list of freem. 1669, and he m. for sec. w. Ann, wid. of Roger Betts of Branford. The s. wh. wrote his name Cable, d. 1673. No ch. foll. this sec. w. prob. for in her will of 6 Feb. 1674, Samuel B. her s. was made heir, and to her other ch. she gave 5s. ea. SAMUEL, New Haven 1646.

CAD, or CADD, BARTHOLOMEW, Boston, merch. d. 1665, leav. wid. Mary to admin. upon his est. as in Prob. rec. IV. 227, and 8 appears to be good, compris. one third of a vessel, ho. and ld. near the new meeting ho. and ld. at Casco, apprais. 14 June. By the exquis. dilig. of Mr. Trask, in Genal. Reg. XIII. 156, I was led to scrutinize the hopes of his origin; but among m. or b. I find nothing, nor does the labor of Willis, in Hist. of Portland, enlighten us. Even for any surname, begin. with C. I find no Bartholomew.

CADMAN, GEORGE, Dartmouth 1685.

CADY, or CADE, AARON, Canterbury, prob. youngest s. of Nicholas, by first w. had James, b. at Watertown, 15 Nov. 1682; and by sec. w. Mercy, d. of Joshua Fuller, at C. had Aaron, 1718.

JAMES, Watertown, s. of Nicholas, m. 14 June 1678, Hannah, d. of Ellis Barron, rem. to Groton, had there Elizabeth b. 10 Apr. 1686; and he d. 2 Dec. 1690.

JOHN, Ipswich, eldest s. of the preced. m. 1686, Sarah Foster, had Jacob; John, b. 19 Aug. 1692, k. by the Ind. on serv. in Maine, 1724; and William. Of this name, six had been gr. in 1828, at Harv. and six at the other N. E. coll.

CALEF, or CALFE, JAMES, Rowley 1644. JOSEPH, Ipswich, eldest s. of Robert the first, a physician, by w. Mary had Robert, b. 12 Dec. 1693; Joseph, 20 May 1695; Samuel, 25 Jan. 16979; Ebenezer; Peter; and Mary; all liv. when he d. 28 Dec. 1707, aged 36. ROBERT, Roxbury, of wh. we kn. little more than that he had four s. Joseph, bef. ment.; John; Jeremiah; and the well-deserv. Robert, beside ds. Martha, wh. m. 28 Sept. 1700, Solomon Hewes; and Mary, wh. m. 9 Oct. 1712, Samuel Stevens; and that he d. 13 Apr. 1719, aged 71, as his gr. stone at Roxbury tells; and his gr.s. Joseph, bef. admin. of est. 3 June 1720; and his wid. Mary d. 12 Nov. foll. When the real est. was div. in 1726, names of uncles and aunts of the admor. to wh. he was bound to pay proportions, are ascertain. ROBERT, Boston, merch. s. of the preced. perhaps youngest, m. 23 Dec. 1699, Margaret, d. of James Buxton of Newton, had eight ch. if not more, but most of them d. young, the names of James, Ann, and Margaret alone being ment. as outliv. the f. perhaps one was Daniel, wh. d. at Roxbury, 13 Aug. 1712. Beside there is rec. of b. by a former w. Mary, of Edward, 30 Jan. 1689, unless this may rather seem to be br. instead of ch. of the disting. Robert. Of his d. we find not exact date, but it was betw. Apr. 1722, and 18 Feb. foll. when his will of 2 Jan. 1720 was pro. Ever honor. will be his name for the small book, call. "More Wonders of the Invisib. World," print. at London, 1700, giv. hist. of the baneful superstition of 1692; that serv. to prevent renewal of the horrid tradgedies that the patrons of delusion, unsatisfied with their sad experience, would surely have attempt. When Presid. Mather order. the modest work to be burned in the college yd. he fail. in true policy almost as deeply as if he had prevail. to obt. similar treatm. of the body of the author as of his wol. and his own power in the Inst. that had long suffer. as by nightmare, ceased in few weeks. Once or twoce since there have been partial outcries against witchcraft, but for more than a century no influence has been exert. to renew crimin. prosecut.

CALL, JOHN, Charlestown 1637, of wh. no more is kn. but that he join. the ch. 24 Oct. 1639, and, perhaps, d. 1678. JOHN, Charlestown, s. of Thomas, b. in Eng. m. 21 Jan. 1657, Hannah, d. of Richard Kettell, wh. d. 27 Aug. 1708, aged 71, had John, b. 20 Jan. foll. perhaps, and Thomas, both bapt. 6 July 1662; Jonathan, 27 Sept. 1663; Nathaniel, 1 Apr. 1666; Mehitable, 30 Aug. 1668; Calaeb, 2 Oct. 1670; Hannah, 29 June 1673; and Esther, 27 Feb. 1676; d. of smallpox, 1678, all the ch. then liv. But possib. this date of d. may refer, more [[vol. 1, p. 330]] prob. to first nam. John. Yet ten yrs. later there were John senr. and John, jr. at C. and easi. to be look at as f. and s. So that I prefer to regard this man as the one adm. of the ch. 29 June 1662, wh. was freem. 1671, deac. and d. 9 Apr. 1697. JOHN, Charlestown, eldest s. of the preced. m. Martha, d. of Ricahrd Lowden, with her join. to the ch. 6 Mar. 1687, had John, bapt. 6 Nov. 1687; and Hannah, 6 Dc. 1691; d. 4 May 1713, aged 55 yrs. 4 mos. 14 days says the scrupul. rec. JONATHAN, Charlestown, the rep. of 1689, may have been s. or br. of the sec. John. NATHANIEL, Charlestown, perhaps br. of the preced. by w. Temperance Hurry, d. of William, m. 1690, had Hannah, bapt. 20 Oct. 1695. PHILIP, Ipswich, d. Sept. 1662, leav. ch. Philip, b. 17 Jan. 1660; and Mary. THOMAS, Charlestown, on Mistick side, a tilemaker, or husbandman, came in 1636, with w. Bennet, and three ch. of wh. one was Mary, from Faversham, in Kent, had Elizabeth bapt. 21 Feb. 1641; and Mercy, b. 7 Nov. 1643, whose bapt. can hardly be ascert. for the ch. rec. has a gr. gap, and even that of his adm. calls the name John. He was freem. 13 May 1640, perhaps liv. at Concord 1645, but soon went back to Charlestown to m. Joanna, wid. of Daniel Shepardson, wh. d. 30 Jan. 1661, and he d. May 1676, aged 79. One Mercy C. at Malden m. 4 Nov. 1662, Samuel Lee, and, next, 25 Oct. 1677, John Allen; and Elizabeth m. Samuel Tingley, and, next, the sec. Daniel Shepardson, but I knew neither h. nor w. yet venture to conject. that he d. a. mid. age, and that his wid. m. 2. Dec. 1686, Richard Wicks, as this union is sanction. by rec. of M. tho. Richard is as much unkn. as Mercy. THOMAS, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. liv. at Malden, m. 22 July 1657, Lydia Shepardson, d. of his f.╒s w. Lydia; and Joanna, b. Mar. 1660, perhaps no other ch. was freem. 1668, and d. Nov. 1678, aged a. 45. THOMAS, Charlestown, s. of John of the same, m. 22 May 1683, Elizabeth d. perhaps of Thomas Croswell, had Jonathan, bapt. 31 Aug. 1684; ano. ch. 21 Nov. 1686; Esther, 19 Nov. 1693; and Jonathan, again, 11 Aug. 1700.

CALLENDER, ELLIS, Boston 1669, a cooper, was one of the found. of that first Bapt. ch in C. where some time from 1708 he serv. as teach. freem. 1690, had, perhaps, other ch. beside John, and Elisha, H. C. 1710; d. 18 May 1728, aged 87. The excel. John, min. of Newport, b. at Boston 1706, s. of John and H. C. 1723, whose Centu. Sermon is so much valu. was his gr.s. ELISHA, Boston, s. of the preced. ord. 21 May 1718, had Ellis, and perhaps other ch. was of great merit, and d. 31 Mar. 1738. GEORGE, Boston, wh. may have been s. of Ellis, by w. Sarah had Joanna, b. 23 Oct. 1687.

CAMMOCK, THOMAS, Portsmouth 1631 or 2, had two or three yrs. bef. been in Maine, was neph. of the Earl of Warwick, got patent for lds. at Black point, Scarborough, in 1636, sat as one of a Ct. of Commissnrs. at Saco, under power of Sir Ferdinando Gorges, soon after went home, but came back 1638, with John Josselyn, in the Nicholas, and resid. at S. On a voyage to the West Indies he d. 1643, leav. wid. Margaret, wh. m. his fellow-commissnr. Henry Josselyn. No ch. are ment. Sullivan, 128, erron. marks his d. 1663. This name was not rare at Boston, Eng.

CAMP, oft. KEMP, EDWARD, New Haven 1643, had Edward, b. 1650; Mary, 1652; Sarah, 1655; and perhaps more, but not prob. for he d. 1659. EDWARD, Milford, prob. s. of the preced. m. 1674, Mehitable, d. of John Smith, first of the same. JOHN, Hartford, freem. 1669, m.

NICHOLAS, Milford 1639, m. 14 July 1652, as his sec. w. Catharine, wid. of Anthony Thompson, had Joseph, b. 11 Aug. 1653, at New Haven, wh. d. young; but at M. Samuel, 15 Sept. 1655; Joseph, 1658, H. C. 1677; Mary, 1660; John, and Sarah, tw. bapt. 1662; and Abigail, 1662. By first w. no ch. is ment. and he had third w. was rep. 1670, 1, and 2. Lambert says, he d. 1706, and it may be so. SAMUEL, Milford, perhaps s. of the preced. perhaps of the first Edward, m. 13 Nov. 1672, Hannah, d. of Thomas Betts, wh. is not nam. in the will of her f. 1688, and may have d. early. WILLIAM, New London 1683, m. Elizabeth d. of Richard Smith, and d. 9 Oct. 1713, leav. s. William, and James. Of this name, in 1829, were eight gr. at Yale, one at Dart. none at Harv.

Under commis. from home he was made postmaster for our side of the world. Thomas, Hist. of Print. II. 414, cit. Dunton's Life and Errors. JOHN, Boston 1695, perhaps be. but not prob. s. of the preced. ( and in doubt, whether he was here bef. May 1692, I have hesitat. to give him place on my page), by w. Mary had Elizabeth b. 6 Feb. 1696; and Mary, 23 July 1704; was postmaster, but much more kn. as propr. of the Boston Newsletter, the earliest Gazette on W. side of the ocean, print. by Bartholomew Green, first issu. 17 Apr. 1704; d. 4 Mar. 1728, aged 75. See Thomas, II. 210. Of this name, tho.[[vol. 1, p. 332]] Farmer found twenty gr. in 1829, had proceed. from N. J. or Union, or N. E. coll. he could count only three at Harv. two at Dart. none at Yale.

CAMPERWELL, MORDECAI, emb. 1 Apr. 1679, at Barbados for N. E. in the ketch Swallow; but whether he hever reach. our shores, I have not heard.

CAMPERFIELD, or CANFIELD, JOHN, Portsmouth, R. I. call. jr. among freem. 1655. MATTHEW, New Haven 1644, m. Sarah, d. of Richard Treat of Wethersfield, had Samuel, bapt. 19 Oct. 1645; Sarah, 23 (not, 24, as in Geneal. Reg. IX. 358) May 1647; Ebenezer, b. 1649; Matthew, 9 May 1650; Hannah, 21, bapt. 22 June 1651; and Rachel, b. 1652; rem. to Norwalk, and had there Jonathan and Mary, and was rep. 1654 until the union of Conn. and N.H. Cols. in the Royal chart. where this name is insert. and after that union 1665 and 6, then rem. to Newark, N. J. and d. 1673. SAMUEL, Norwalk, freem. 1669, eldest s. of the preced. m. prob. a d. of Francis Willowby of Charlestown, but nothing more is kn. THOMAS, Milford 1646, perhaps br. of Matthew, an early but not first sett. rep. 1673 and 4, perhaps rem. His will, of 23 Feb. 1687 names ch. Thomas, wh. d. bef. his f. leav. w. Rebecca with ch. Thomas, and Rebecca; Jeremiah; Sarah Platt; Phebe Smith, w. of John; Elizabeth Baldwin; Abigail Staples; Mary; Hannah; and Mehitable. The will of his wid. Phebe was made 28 July 1690. For w. Phebe and s. Jeremiah we must trust Cothren, wh. however can tell only, that Jeremiah m. Judith Mallory, had Jeremiah, and other ch. not favor. with names. In the spell. of this name authors vary, even in giv. the chart. of Char. II. Trumbull's Hist. I. 249, may be less accura. than Trumbull, Col. Rec. II. 3. The p was drop. and m turn. to n very early. Farmer found, in 1829, six gr. of this name at Yale, none at Harv. or Dart.

CAMPION, CLEMENT, Portsmouth 1647.

CAMPLIN, RICHARD, Salem, d. 23 Apr. 1662.

CANE, or CANNE, CHRISTOPHER, Cambridge, by w. Margaret had Deborah, b. 17 Jan. 1645. In Geneal. Reg. VIII. 345, is giv. the blunder of this name from copy of Boston rec. Champney.

CANFIELD. See Campfield.

CANN, JOHN, Boston, m. 30 July 1661, Esther, d. of William Reed.

CANNEY, JOSEPH, Dover, s. of Thomas, m. 25 Dec. 1670, Mary, d. of Job Clements, had Jane, b. 16 Dec. foll.; Joseph, 14 Oct. 1674; and Mary, 25 July 1678. THOMAS, Portsmouth 1631, sent over by Mason, the patentee, was of Dover 1644, had Thomas, b. bef. 1645; Joseph; Mary, wh. m. Jeremy Tibbets; and a d. wh. m. Henry Hobbs. In June 1661, his w. Jane (we may hope not the mo. of those ch.) was indict. for beat. him, his s.-in-law Tibbets; and his w. and he d. 1677, or earlier. THOMAS, Dover, s. of the preced. by w. Sarah had six ch. but tho. their names are not seen, the ages, at his d. early in 1675, were, as Mr. Quint assures us, 11, 9, 8, 6,4, and 1 yrs. respectiv. His wid. m. bef. May 1677, John Wingate, and had more.

CANNON, JOHN, Plymouth, came in the Fortune 1621; but whether he rem. or went home, is unkn. and his name at the div. of cattle, 1627, is not found. One C. was of Sandwich 1650, wh. may have been that [[vol. 1, p. 333]] Robert of New London in 1678, wh. was chos. a town officer in 1680, and prob. rem. soon.

CANTERBURY, CORNELIUS, Hingham 1639, was liv. 1672, but left descend. only thro. female line. Perhaps Ann, wh. m. July 1679, Peter Barnes, was the eldest, b. 14 May 1653; Mary, 29 Oct. 1654; and Cornelius, 11 Jan. 1657; and I hear no more. JOHN, a soldier in Dec. 1675, of Moseley's comp. was, prob. s. of William. WILLIAM, Lynn 1641, was after of Salem, and d. 1 June 1663, leav. wid. Beatrice, and ch. John, Ruth, and Rebecca, all, with the childr. of the latter, ment. in his will of 2 Apr. 1661. The wid. had m. 29 Nov. 1665, Francis Plummer of Newbury, and d. Rebecca m. a Woodrow. This name is often Cantelberry, or Cantlebury.
