NEHEMIAH, Swanzey 1669, was bur. 24 June 1675, I suppose, a victim of the first day of Philip's war. NEHEMIAH, Northampton, s. of Samuel of Windsor, m. 21 Sept. 1664, Sarah, d. of Thomas Woodford, had Samuel, b. 3 Jan. 1666; Nehemiah, 18 Oct. 1667, d. soon; Nehemiah, again, 6 Nov. 1669; Sarah, 22 Aug. 1672; Thomas, 17 Jan. 1675, d. next yr.; Hannah, bapt. 6 May 1677; Ruth, perhaps, 5 Jan. tho.

PETER, Roxbury, by w. Mary had James, b. 6 June 1692; Elizabeth 20 Dec. 1694, d. at 14 yrs.; Mary, 17 [[vol. 1, p. 35]] Aug. 1697; and Sarah, 22 Apr. 1701, wh. d. at 8 yrs. PHILIP, perhaps of Rehoboth or that vicin. was a soldier of Gallop's co. 1690, in the ill-starred expedit. against Quebec. RALPH, Newport 1639, Rehoboth 1643, perhaps s. of George the first, and coming this last yr. from Sandwich, had Josiah, b. 3 Jan. 1647; Experience, 14 Mar. 1652; Ephraim, 20 Mar. 1657; beside Mary, bur. 18 Apr. 1675. He was one of the many Quakers imprison. 1659, at Boston, liberat. by order of Charles II. so much to the regret of John Hull and the larger part of our people. RICHARD, Salisbury, had Richard, wh. d. 8 June 1678. Ruth, wid. of one Richard A. m. 5 Oct. 1660, Philip Knell of Charlestown. ROBERT, Sheepscot 1641, was soon aft. of Salem, had there gr. of ld. 1643, as he had in Feb. 1639. went home in 1658, and gave evidence 21 Feb. 1659, at Bristol, Eng. that he had kn. 17 yrs. in N. E. John Brown, a mason, wh. he left there (perhaps at New Haven, where was his home 1 July 1644), in June preced. in good health. He had resid. 1643, at New Haven, and next yr. took the o. of fidel. ROGER, New Haven. See Alling. SAMUEL, Braintree, perhaps as early as 1632, freem. 6 May 1635, by w. Ann, wh. d. 29 Sept. 1641, had Samuel, b. a. 1633; Mary; Sarah, 30 Mar. 1639; and, by w. Margaret, whose f. is unkn. but wh. had been wid. of Edward Lamb, had James; Abigail; Joseph, 15 May 1650; And perhaps one or two preced. His will of 2 Aug. 1669 as pro. 16 Sept. foll. Mary, m. 24 Jan. 1656, Nathaniel Greenwood; Sarah, m. Josiah Standish of Duxbury, as his sec. w. and Abigail, m. 1670, the sec. John Cary of the same. SAMUEL, Newport 1639. SAMUEL, Windsor 1636, was not, prob. br. of that Matthew, wh. wrote his name Allyn, as sometimes suppos. tho. he spell. the same way, had Samuel, Nehemiah, John, and Rebecca, beside two others. He was bur. 28 Apr. 1648, and his wid. m. William Hulbert, and with her Ch. rem. to Northampton. SAMUEL, Northampton 1657, s. of the preced. m. 29 Nov. 1659, Hannah, d. of Thomas Woodford, had Hannah, b. 4 Feb. 1661; Thankful, 15 July 1663; Sarah, 28 July 1668; Joseph, 20 Nov. 1672; Samuel, 6 July 1675; Ebenezer, 21 July 1678; Thomas, Feb. 1681; and Mindwell, 4 Feb. 1683, beside two of unkn. names; was freem. 1683, and d. 18 Oct. 1719, more than 80 yrs. old. His s. deac. Samuel, wh. m. 1699, Sarah Rust was gr.f. of Rev. Thomas, II. C. 1762, one of whose s. is Rev. Dr. William, of Northampton, H. C. 1802, late Presid. of Bowdoin Coll. and a laborious author of the Amer. Biograph. Dict. Ed. 3, publ. 1857. SAMUEL, Bridgewater, s. of Samuel the first, m. a. 1658, Sarah, a. of George Partridge, had Samuel, b. 1660; Asahel, perhaps meant by the strange rec. Essiel, 1663; Mehitable, 1665; Sarah, 1667; Bethia, 1669; Nathaniel, 1672; Ebenezer, 1674; Josiah, 1677; Elisha, 1679; and Nehemiah, 1681; and d. 1703, when his age is made 71. He was careful town clk. prais. by Mitchell, and rep. 1693. Descend. are very many.
SAMUEL, Manchester, had, prob. s. of the same name, for in the [[vol. 1, p. 36]] petition from that town, as the head of a Comtee. in Geneal. Reg. X. 322, appears Samuel with suffix of senr. SAMUEL, Barnstable. See Allyn. SAMUEL, Sudbury, m. Elizabeth d. of John Grout, had five ch. provid. for in the will of their gr.f. as f. had d. and his wid. m. lieut. John Livermore, by that will call. s. in law. SAMUEL, Portsmouth, the royal Gov. of N. H. was a merch. of London, late in coming to our country, may for his progeny claim no place in this work. However he had w. Elizabeth s. Thomas, and d. Elizabeth wh. m. lieut. Gov. John Usher, and three other ds. d. 5 May 1705, only two days after the rep. of N. H. had offer. him proposals that necessarily implied the spuriousness of the gr. Indian deed to Wheelwright of 1629. See Farmer's Ed. of Belkn. I. 162, 3. THOMAS, Charlestown, s. of John, b. at Norwich, Co. Norfolk, 1608, bred at Gonville and Caius Coll. in the Univ. of Cambridge, where he took his degr. A. B. 1627-8 and A. M. 1631, came in 1638, and join the ch. of Boston 27 Jan. 1639, then call. "a student." was invit. June foll. to Charlestown, there some time bef. had m. Ann, d. of the Rev. Mr. Sadler of Patcham in Co. Sussex, presum. by me to have been wid. of blessed John Harvard, his predecess. as collea. with Rev. Zechariah Symmes. In his Ecclesiast. Ann. I. 379, Mr. Felt makes her accomp. Allen, as his w. but this seems highly improb. as the w. would naturally have unit. with our ch. soon after her h. if not at the same time, whereas no fem. mem. of the name of Allen was rec. into the Boston ch. for a long, time after he had been sett. at C. exc. a maiden Elizabeth 24 Mar. 1639 wh. two yrs. after m. Rev. Samuel Stone of Hartford. Bef. the coming of Allen, we kn. from the Hist. of the first ch. at Charlestown, by Budington, p. 247, where begins the invalu. catalogue, that "John Harvard and Ann Harvard his w." join. that ch. 6 Nov. 1637. From the Hist. of Harv. Coll. it is kn. that Allen was admor. on est. of Harvard, and paid the moneys bequeath. so that it can hardly be doubt. that the judgment of Felt was at fault, especially as, a few pages earlier, the diligent author had noted, that Harvard's wid. was "supposed to have m. Rev. Thomas Allen." His ch. were Mary, b. 31 Jan. bapt. prob. 23 Feb. 1640; Sarah, 8 Aug. 1641, d. in Apr. foll.; Elizabeth 17 Sept. 1643, d. in few days; and Mercy, 13 Aug. 1646, d. in few days. The rec. of bapt. for many yrs. after 1640, is lost. In 1651 he went home, and serv. at the same altar of St. Edmunds, in his native city, where he had officiat. bef. com. hither; when worried out of his diocese, 1636, by Bp. Wren; and again he suffer. in the gen. ejectm. of 1662; yet was with much affection sustain. by the worshipp. at a dissent. chapel, as long as such was tolerat. For a sec. w. he had Joanna, wid. of maj.-gen. Robert Sedgwick, wh. had been drawn to Eng. by partiality of Oliver Cromwell for men from this quarter. She had been of his flock at Charlestown, and prob. bore [[vol. 1, p. 37]] him no ch. and we hear of no s. but Thomas, wh. was of Lincoln's Inn some time, but resid. at Norwich 1692. The f. d. 21 Sept. 1673. See Frothingham, Budington, 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 317, and Berry's Geneal. sub voce Sadler. THOMAS, Middletown. See Allyn. THOMAS, Scituate 1643. THOMAS, Barnstable. See Allyn. TIMOTHY, Marblehead 1648, may have liv. 1670, at Norwich. WALTER, Newbury 1640, there had Abigail, b. 1 Oct. 1641; and Benjamin, 16 Apr. 1647; and no more is to be seen in Coffin. Certain. he rem. to Watertown, and by w. Rebecca had others, as John, and Daniel (prob. s. of the first w.), wh. liv. at Sudbury, beside Joseph, perhaps all bef. 1657; and after d. of his w. he went to Charlestown, there m. 29 Nov. 1678, Abigail Rogers, and d. 8 July 1681. WILLIAM, Salem 1626, comp. of Conant, req. adm. 19 Oct. 1630, and was made freem. 18 May foll. had Samuel, b. 8 Jan. 1632; Deborah, bapt. 23 Apr. 1637; Bethia 19 Jan. 1640; Onesiphorus, b. 6 June 1642; William, bapt. 31 May 1646; and Jonathan, 29 July 1643; but of these only the first came by the first w. as she d. Mar. 1632; and tho. the name of Elizabeth is giv. by Felt among the earliest ch. mem. he could not mark, whether she were w. of William, much less, whether first or sec. By a depon. he gave 1664, it is judg. that he was b. a. 1602. His will of 7 June 1678 name. w. Elizabeth and the three elder s. only; and he d. 30 Jan. foll. WILLIAM, Newbury, nam. by Coffin as of Salem 1638, but no support can be found for any other, so early, than him who had then occup. there for twelve yrs. and prob. he is more correct in placing him at Salisbury from 1639 to 50 ; m. Ann, d. of Richard Goodale, had Ann, b. 4 Jan. 1640; Hannah, 17 June 1642; Mary, 29 July 1644; Martha, 1646; John, 9 Oct. 1648; William, 2 Oct. 1650; Benjamin, 1652; Joseph, 13 Oct. 1653; Richard, 8 Nov. 1656; Ruth, 19 Feb. 1658; and Jeremiah, 17 Feb. 1659. In Salisbury he is commonly nam. with prefix of respect, as Mr. and he d. 18 June 1686. His will, of 16 Sept. 1674, with codic. 7 Nov. 1676, names w. Ann, wh. d. end of May 1678, s. John, William, Benjamin, Richard, and Jeremiah; ds. Abigail Wheeler, Hannah Ayer, Mary Hewes, and Martha Hubbard. His wid. Alice d. 1 Apr. 1687. Hannah m. 8 Oct. 1659, Peter Ayer. WILLIAM, Concord, d. Oct. 1659. He had m. the wid. of Thomas Atkinson of C. but prob. had no ch. and admin. on his est. was giv. to John Hayward, wh. had m. the eldest d. of Atkinson. WILLIAM, Sandwich, s. prob. of George the first, m. 21 Mar. 1650, Priscilla Browne. WILLIAM, Boston, made his will, 15 Dec. 1674, and d. soon. In it he gives all his prop. in hands of Jonathan Tyng, or elsewhere, to Lydia, w. of John Benjamin of Watertown, from wh. Bond seems to be justly authoriz. to infer, that Lydia was his d. but it may be doubted, for on 26 of next mo. John Benjamin renounc. the benefit of the will. She may have been his sis. for the will does not call her d. nor can I find any ch. on Boston rec. of b. but sis. or d. prob. the value of his goods was very small.
WILLIAM, Salisbury s. of William of the same, m. 5 July 1674, Mary, d. of John Harris of Rowley, had William, b. 30 June [[vol. 1, p. 38]] 1675, d. young; Stitson, 29 Jan. 1677; Ann, 3 May 1678; William, again, 14 June 1680; Abigail, 2 July 1683; Judith, 17 Jan. 1687, d. at 16 yrs.; Dorothy, 12 Aug. 1688; and Mary, 1 Dec. 1692, d. at 10 yrs. He d. 10 May 1700. How often the names of Allin, Allyn, Alling, or Alleyne, with sev. variat. may be found with the same letters as the foregoing, is beyond enumerat. With this spell. are found 27 gr at Harv., 10 at Yale, and 8 at Dartm., beside 37 at other coll. of N. E as Farmer saw.
ALLERTON, ISAAC, one of the pilgr. in the Mayflower, at Plymouth, 1620, at one time the richest of the Co. was an Assist. 1621, the sole officer for three yrs. under the Gov. He brot. w. Mary, wh. was call. Collins, from Newbury, Co. Berks, m. at Leyden, 4 Nov. 1611, the same day that his wid. sis. m. there Digory Priest; three ch. Bartholomew, Remember, and Mary. His w. d. 25 Feb. after land. and he m. 1626, Fear, d. of Elder William Brewster, by wh. he had Isaac, H. C. 1650; and prob. no more. This w. d. 1633, and when he liv. at New Haven, 1646, he had third w. Joanna, wh. is honor. after d. of her h. as having giv. shelter to the regicides, Goffe and Whalley, tho. with the usual felicity of tradit. the merit was ascrib. to her gr.d. (then a small ch.) and liv. to 1684. As agent for the Co. he went to Eng. three or four times, but gave not satisfact. in the latter visit; and on his private business was oblig. to go, more than once, of all wh. large statem. is seen in the Hist. of Bradford. In 1643, the Dutch, with wh. he had passed some yrs. having lost the confid. of his early friends bef. 1631, would employ him, with Underhill, to raise from the Eng. a force for their protect. against the Ind. but soon after he was sett. at New Haven, and there d. 1659, insolv. Largely he had speculat. at the Eastward and soon after dismiss. from the Plymouth agency, had a trading-house at Machias, destroy. 1633 by the French, met various disasters by shipwrecks of his fishing vessels, in prosecution of wh. business he sometime was engaged at Marblehead, and join. Salem ch. 1647; but seems almost always unlucky. His eldest s. Bartholomew m. and liv. in Eng. as Bradford first taught us; Remember m. Moses Maverick of Salem; and Mary m. Elder Thomas Cushman, and d. 1699, the last surv. of the blessed band of the first ship, for wh. we may feel suffic. esteem without accept. the report of her being " over 90 yrs. old." Sarah was the name often ascrib. to Maverick's w. and Young's Chronicles of the Pilgrims, Russell's Guide to Plymouth, the accos. of Judge Davis, in his Ed. of Morton's Memor. of Dr. Bacon in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. 243, and of Cushman in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 265-70, are all subject to no little correction since the contempo. Hist. of Bradford has been brot. to light. ISAAC, New Haven, s. of the preced. and the only ch. nam. in the will of his f. tho. as the testator had not a shilling to give, the omiss. of other ch. need not be regret. For his f's wid. Isaac purchas. the portion of the domicil that the law would not [[vol. 1, p. 39]] give, and bestow. it on her for life, remain to his eldest d. Elizabeth b. 27 Sept. 1653. His only other ch. was Isaac, b. 11 June 1655, wh. d. prob. bef. his f. and without issue. The f. is thot to have rem. shortly after 1660, and Hutch. in his Hist. II. 461 speaks, as if there were male offspring in Maryland, at his day. The w's name is not heard of, but the d. m. 23 Dec. 1675, Benjamin Starr, and next 22 July 1679, Simon Eyre the third. JOHN, Plymouth 1620, a sailor of the Mayflower, had made up his mind to partake the lot of the pilgr. as he sign. the compact in Cape Cod harb. but he d. bef. the ship sail. on her home voyage.
ALLEY, GILES, Lynn, of wh. we kn. no more but that, in Sept. 1668, he was call. 42 yrs. of age. HUGH, Lynn, wh. may have been elder br. of the preced. came in the Abigail, 1635, from London, aged 27, had Mary, b. 6 Jan. 1642; John, 30 Nov. 1646; Martha, 31 July 1649; Sarah, 15 Apr. 1651; Hugh, 15 Oct. 1653; Solomon, 2 Aug. 1656, one of the k. at Blooay brook, 18 Sept. 1675, in the comp. of Lothrop, call. "the flower of Essex;" Hannah, I June 1661; and Jacob, 5 Sept. 1663; d. 25 Jan. 1674. His will of 2 Jan. in that yr. and the wid. Mary took admin. Mary m. 6 June 1667, John Lindsay; Sarah m. Aug. 1668, Eleazer Lindsay; and Martha m. 1 Apr. 1671, James Mills. HUGH, Lynn, s. of the preced. m. 9 Dec. 1681, Rebecca Hood, had Solomon, b. 11 Oct. 1682; Jacob, 28 Jan. 1684; Eleazer, 1 Nov. 1686; Hannah, 16 Aug. 1689; Richard, 31 July 1691; Joseph, 22 June 1693; and Benjamin, 24 Feb. 1696. JOHN, Lynn, eldest br. of the preced. m. 15 Aug. 1670, Joanna Furnell, had Sarah, b. 15 Apr. 1671; Mary, 25 Apr. 1673; John, Jan. 1676; Hannah, 22 Jan. 1680; Rebecca, 28 May 1683; Hugh, 15 Feb. 1686; and William, 14 July 1688; beside two ds. more, wh. prob. d. young. PHILIP, Boston, d. 1655 perhaps, for 7 Dec of that yr. his wid. Susanna, wh. took admin. the next week, had m. William Pitts. See Ally. Strangely is this name convert. to Aealy by that vol. usual. suppos. to be a rec. in our City Register's office, correct. transcr. for Geneal. Rev. XI. 201, the first two letters being a diphthong. What sanctity should be attrib. to the official exemplar may easily be kn. by the flagr. case of falsehood on the very next page of the same Vol. where it is also correct copy, assert. that a m. was solemniz. by John Winthrop Gov. 5 Nov. 1657, when that magistr. had been near nine yrs. entomb.
ALLEYNE, EDWARD, Dedham 1636, one of the founders of the ch. 8 Nov. 1638, freem. 13 Mar. foll. with prefix of respect, at the same time with his pastor, Rev. John Allin, spelt with e in the last syl. to wh. he may have had near relation. He was rep. four yrs. 1639-42, and on 8 Sept. of this last yr. d. at Boston on attend. in the Gen. Ct. so sudden. that his will was nuncup. Prob. he had no w. or ch. for his est. was giv. by him to kinsmen John Newton, and Edward Allen. EDWARD, Boston [[vol. 1, p. 40]] 1677, of wh. I am not able to say, whether he was the devisee in the will of the preced. In 1697 he kept a shop at Hartford, had w. Lydia, ch. Edward, and Martha. But ano. EDWARD at H. m. Rachel, d. of James Steele, had John, b. 4 Mar. 1690; and Rachel, 20 Aug. 1694.
ALLIN, JOHN, Dedham, the first min. (formerly by me thot. erron. to be s. of Robert of Horley in Co. Oxford, matric. at Magdalen Coll. 27 June 1623, in his 18th yr. whereas it seems much more likely that he was of Cambridge Univ.) came over in 1637, was, freem. 13 Mar. 1639, ord. 24 Apr. foll. From the date of his b. 1596, and of the entrance of Bp. Wren upon his diocese 1635, Brook, in Lives of the Pur. III. 456, concludes, that he had been a preach. at Ipswich in Suff. and some reason for conject. that he was of Surlingham in Norf. is found by Dr. Lamson, his successor at D. in our day. His actual serv. however, had been at Wrentham, Co. Suff. a. 30 miles N. E. from Ipswich. When I exam. the Reg. of the Univ. of Oxford, it did not occur to me, that the age giv. him at matric. must have been too small by 10 yrs. and it is very clear that the Oxford schol. was not our John, but of a differ. fam. and fate also. Margaret, his w. d. Apr. 1653; and by her we kn. of no ch. exc. John, b. at Wrentham 13 Oct. 1623, H. C. 1643, of course he was not, as Farmer surmis. "sent hither from Eng,. to obt. an educat." but brot. by his f. For sec. w. he took 8 Nov. 1653, Catharine, wid. of Gov. Thomas Dudley, dec. 31 July preced. and she had first been wid. of Samuel Hackburne, had Daniel, b. 5 Aug. 1656, H. C. 1675; Benjamin; and Eleazer. He was of high esteem for learn. ana d. 26 Aug. 1671, in his will, made three days bef. pro. five days after, ment. his s. John, as "educat. in learn." and "now of Eng." Of the youngest two s. nothing is heard; and not much of Daniel, wh. was librarian short time in 1677, took his A. M. 1678, liv. at Charlestown, mortgag. his Dedham est. to John Richards, and d. 1692. See Worthington, 47-9; and Lamson's Centu. Discourses. JOHN, Dedham, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. went home, was vicar of Rye in Co. Sussex, whence being eject. 1662, for nonconform. he went to London, there practis. med. with much success during the great plague of 1665, and was suppos. by William Winthrop in his MS. catal. to have d. but we have plenary evid. in his own letters to friends at Rye, (in one of wh. is ment. of the d. of his f. in N. E.) coming down to Mar. 1674, that he contin. in the serv. of humanity at London. LEWIS, Billerica. See Allen. WILLIAM, adm. freem. 18 May 1642, is of no certain resid. and the name spell. with single l and final e.
ALLING, FRANCES, Roxbury, d. 1 Dec. 1692, of wh. no more is kn. to me, but that the town rec. of his bur. on the same day, spells Allen. JAMES, Salisbury s. of Roger, was the third min. there. coming as success. to Wheelwright, m. 1688, Elizabeth d. of Rev. John Cotton of Plymouth, had Joanna, b. 5 Mar. 1690; Mary, 10 Apr. 1692; and Elizabeth 2 Sept. 1694; and he d. 3 Mar. 1695. His wid. m. 14 Mar. 1699, Rev.
