Six pages of Thayer's Genealog. are giv. to this fam. of wh. in 1844, eight had been gr. at Harv. and none at Yale or Dart.

CAPRON, BENFIELD, Rehoboth, that pt. wh. bec. Attleborough, a. 1680 had w. Elizabeth wh. d. 10 Mar. 1735, and ch. Benfield; Joseph; Elizabeth b. 22 Oct. 1684; Edward; John; Jonathan, 10 Mar. 1706; and Sarah, 11 Mar. 1709. He is reput. the progenit. of all the name within gr. circut, and d. 25 Aug. 1752, at gr. age. Daggett.

CARD, FRANCIS, a soldier of good serv. in the Ind. war, 1677, at the E. bur Hubbard, 271-5, does not say, whence he came, or where he resid. RICHARD, Newport, among the freem. in 1655, tho. some suspicion is felt, that his name is only abbreviat. for Carder. WILLIAM, Newebury, 1680, a witness in the prosecut. of Elizabeth w. of William Morse, for witchcr. tho. in the large investigat. bestow. by Coffin on the case in his delightful Hist. of the town, how his evidence serv. to prove the charge of the folly, is not seen.

JOHN, Warwick, br. prob. elder, of the preced. m. 1 Dec. 1671, Mary, d. of Randal Holden, and had John, b. 6 Mar. 1673; William; Richard; Mary; Joseph; and Sarah. At W. descend. are num. But he had former w. Martha, d. of Gov. Brenton. JOSEPH, Warwick, youngest [[vol. 1, p. 335]] br. of the preced. d. 1694, leav. wid. Bethia, and tw. ch. Hannah, and Mary, b. 16 and 17 Apr. 1693. RICHARD, Roxbury, rem early to Boston, freem. 25 May 1636, yet was not mem. of the ch. of B. As a support. of the pestilent heresies of Wheelwright and Hutchinson, he was disfranchis. in 1637, and went to R. I. was one of the eighteen orig. purch. of the beautif. isl. of Aquedneck, and partner in the civil compact. In 1643 he was engag. in the purch. of Warwick with Gorton and others, and for sustain. his and their right was made prison. with all the rest, brot. to Boston, and sentenc. to be incarc. at Roxbury, in irons (when the opin. of the rev. elders, that their offence deserv. death, was overrul.), not to depart on pain of death. See Winthrop I. 248, II. 121, 48. Glad eno. was the governm. to disch. him and his fellow-suffer. next yr. with sentence of banishm. on pain of forfiet. life for coming back. He was quiet at W. 1655, had John; Sarah; James, b. 2 May 1655; Mary; and Joseph; perhaps was an Assist. 1665, and d. at Newport in the time of Philip's war 1675 or 6, leav. wid. Mary. His d. Sarah m. 5 Dec. 1672, Benjamin Gorton; and Mary m. Malachi Rhoades of Providence.

CARLTON, EDWARD, Rowley, freem. 18 May 1642, rep. 1644 and 7, had Edward, the first b. of the town rec. and d. bef. his f. Perhaps for sec. w. he had w. Hannah, eldest d. of the first Joseph Jewett, m. 15 June 1640. Perhaps by her had Prudence, wid. of the first Anthony Crosby; but certain. he went home, and d. in Eng. JOHN, Haverhill, s. of the preced. wh. d. 1669, whose wid. m. Christopher Babbage, may have had that JOHN, wh. m. 27 Aug. 1688, Hannah Osgood, and JOSEPH, wh. m. 2 Aug. 1694, Abigail Osgood, both, prob. ds. of John of Andover, tho. the dates appear to make the hs. to be gr.ch. of him. But the wid. of John the first m. 5 Oct. 1674, as I judge, Christopher Babbage, and had more ch.

CARLILE, BARTHOLOMEW, Sudbury, by w. Hannah had James, b. 1686; and Hannah, 1687.

CARMAN, JOHN, Roxbury, came, 1631, prob. with Eliot, in the Lion, by w. Florence had John, b. 8 July 1633; Abigail, 1635; and Caleb, 6 Aug. 1639, wh. d. young; rem. to L.

CARNEY, JAMES, Boston 1686, a surg.

CARPENTER, BENJAMIN, Providence, s. of William of the same, sw. alleg. May 1671. Perhaps he m. Renew, d. of William Weeks of Dorchester, but he was perman. resid. at Rehoboth, had Jotham, b. 1 June 1682, bapt. 1 July 1683; John, bapt. 21 June 1691; and Submit, 5 Nov. 1693; all, I judge, at Dorchester, in right of their mo.

Mary Hyde, but d. 14 Sept. 1721. Whether he had issue by any of these ws. is unkn. An agreeable let. from him to his f. writ. at Weymouth, prob. 27 July 1690, gives acco. of his then engagem. in the doleful exped. of Phips against Quebec in Gallop's comp. of wh. a list is annex. includ. a few Ind. as may be read in Geneal. Reg. IX. 354. Valuable as is that roll, a better one is furnish. in G. R. XIII. 133, by a writer, who could not have the let. of Carpenter, or he would have avoid, the erron. suppos. that the force was design. for Albany. DAVID, Farmington, d. 22 Jan. 1651, leav. ch. Elizabeth b. a. 1644; David, a. 1647; and Mary, Aug. 1650, all bapt. 16 May 1658, some yrs. after their mo. had m. George Orvis, and she next m. Richard Bronson.

THOMAS, a carpenter, from Amesbury in Wiltsh. came to Boston, 3 June 1635, in the James from Southampton, but nothing more of him is seen. TIMOTHY, Providence, br. of Silas, sw. alleg. at the same time.

A very wild fiction of Samuel being entic. from London by a capt. at twelve yrs. of age, and brot. to Boston, was adm. into so respectab. a work as the Hist. of N. by Hall, p. 234. THOMAS, Charlestown 1636, s. perhaps, of a wid. of Thomas, that was call. old in 1656 (and she prob. brot. also, Joseph, and Samuel, wh. seem too old to be ch. of this Thomas, and may well be thot. his brs.) was freem. 9 Mar. 1637, by w.

THOMAS, Woburn, the first min. there, was bred at St. John's Coll. Cambridge, had his degr. 1629, and 1633, tho. the exemplary careless Mather puts him, with Sherman, into his sec. classis, as if they were younger, instead of elder, than Dunster or Harvard, came 1635, aged 25, in the Planter, as a serv. under George Giddings, to elude detect. no doubt, by the officers under orders of the Privy Counc. to prevent such embark. liv. some yrs. at Watertown, and exert. his faculties first at Dedham, and was ord. at W. 22 Nov. 1642, and there d. 5 Sept. (or by ano. rec. 1 Dec.) 1684, aged 74. His w. Mary, wh. may have been d. of Philemon Dalton, as I infer from the will of his br. Timothy D.'s w. Ruth (hav. no ch.) in wh. she rememb.

THOMAS, Charlestown 1646, call. junr. in the ch. rec. of adm. as mem. and Col. rec. as freem. 1647, but in my opin. was not s. of the first Thomas. THOMAS, York 1663. THOMAS, Charlestown, not s. of the Rev. Thomas of the adj. town, but s. of Thomas of C. the first nam. by w. Esther (rec. into the ch. 12 Mar. 1676, "by let. of dism. from the ch. in London, of wh. Mr. Thomas Vincent is pastor"), had Samuel, b. 11, bapt. 16 Sept. 1677; John, b. 8 Jan. 1679, perhaps d. young; Ann, 8, bapt. 15 May 1681; all d. young, as gr.stones tell; Ann, again, bapt. 5 Nov. 1682; Vincent, 1 Mar. 1685; Ebenezer, 31 July 1687; and prob.

WILLIAM, Marblehead 1668. Of this name I find the gr. in 1853 had been 9 at Harv. 8 at Dart. and 5 at Yale.

CARTHEW, JOHN, Boston, a soldier of Turner's comp. Feb. 1676, then disch. was freem. 1690, licens. to sell liquors 1702.

CARTHRICK, or CARTRACK, MICHAEL, Ipswich 1635, a carpenter, freem. 2 June 1641, when it is writ. Katherick in Col. rec. came, [[vol. 1, p. 343]] perhaps, in the Elizabeth and Ann, 1635; at least we kn. that Sarah, aged 24, and Mildred, 2, then embark. at London for N. E. and if the younger were his d. prob. the elder was his w. Mildred bec. w. of Thomas Brigden, bef. d. of her f. wh. left w. and only s. John.

CARTWRIGHT, ARTHUR, Dorchester 1666. EDWARD, Boston 1662, mariner, m. 1664, Elizabeth prob. sis. of Edward Morris of Roxbury, as he and John White of Muddy riv. were made by C. feoffees in tr. for his w. Elizabeth and she d. at R. 1673. EDWARD, Nantucket, by w. Elizabeth Trott, sis. of John, whose f. is unkn. had Samson, b. 26 Jan. 1678; Susanna, 16 Feb. 1681; Edward, 5 May 1683; and Mary, 29 June 1687; and d. 2 Sept. 1705. His wid. d. 11 Oct. 1729. She was his sec. w. but wh. was the first is not told; yet the opin. at N. is that she bore Nicholas. NICHOLAS, Nantucket, d. 10 Sept. 1706, of wh. no more is kn. exc. that he had by w. Orange, d. of William Rogers of the same, Sarah, b. 13 Oct. 1695; Elinor, 14 Oct. 1697; Hope, 27 Aug. 1699; Lydia, 15 Dec. 1701; and Nicholas, 4 Jan. 1706.


CARVER, JOHN, Plymouth, came in the Mayflower 1620, had been deac. at Leyden, where prob. he liv. ten or a dozen yrs. and much engag. in the negotiat. at London, to wh. he went 1617, and again 1620, to complete the arrangem. for transmigrat. was chos. Gov. in Cape Cod harb. bef. and. and d. in Apr. foll. His wid. Catharine d. early in the first summer. That he ever had ch. is not kn. but certain. he left none. Yet for many yrs. the error was univ. spread, that John Howland, wh. accomp. him, m. his d. Elizabeth The orig. Hist. of Gov. Bradford, recent. print. has correct. that, and we now kn. that the f. of Howland's w. was John Tilley. A wild tradit. that a gr.s. of Gov. C. was at work in a field at Marshfield, 1755, with s. gr.s. and gr. gr.s. while an inf. of the 5th genera. was in the ho. overturn. by modern inquiry, had prob. gain. currency, and escap. unquest. bec. it was wonderful. Belkn. got it from Hutch. II. 456, wh. is common. more worthy of trust. In his volum. MS. annals, Pemberton, sub an. 1760, ment. d. of William C. aged 102, " neph. of the Gov." on 2 Oct. of that yr. and the Boston Gazette of 20 of that mo. says, "he was bro.'s s. to the ancient Gov." but that both are wrong is very prob. if not even certain. Mitchell, in Hist. of Bridgewater, 362, writes, that William was gr.s. of Robert, but the relat. of Robert with the Gov. is not clear, and indeed quite improb. See the Memoir in Genealog. Reg. IV. 105, by one equal. assid. in research, and exact in judgm. Seldom is a heavier load laid upon credul. and similar. of name is too oft. rec. for proof. In Eng. it is found, that the fam. name is common. William Penn, on his first visit to his new Prov. 1682, brot. John Carver, with his w. Mary, wh. had Mary soon after land. JOHN, Duxbury, s. of Robert, had gr. of Id. says Winsor, 1640, m. 4 Nov. 1638, Mellicent, d. of William Ford, had William, b. 1659, wh. prob. was the subject of that marvel. story; John; Elizabeth 1663; Robert; Eleazer; [[vol. 1, p. 344]] David; Mercy, 1672; Ann; and Mehitable, wh. d. 19 Apr. 1679. He was adm. freem. 1660, and d. 23 June 1679, aged 41. His wid. m. 9 ar. 1681, Thomas Drake. RICHARD, Watertown 1638,of Scratby, a. six ms. from Yarmouth, Co. Norfk. there emb. in 1637, on the Rose, or the John and Dorothy, the two sail. in comp. he then aged 60, with w. Grace, 40, tw. ds. Elizabeth and Susanna, 18, and three serv. Isaac Hart, 22; Thomas Flegg, 21; and Marable Underwood, 20. He d. early, his will of 9 Sept. 1641, being pro. 30 Oct. 1643, and nothing is kn. of his fam. exc. that w. and ds. are provid. for, as is seen in the abstr. of Geneal. Reg. II. 262. ROBERT, Marshfield, had gr. of 1638, yet, tho. he sev. times request. the privilege, he was not adm. freem. bef. 1644, had John, bef. ment. and William, perhaps took small est. in Boston 1668, and d. Apr. 1680, aged 85. WILLIAM, Marshfield, s. of the preced. m. 18 Jan. 1682, Elizabeth eldest d. of deac. John Foster of the same.

CARWITHEN, CORWITHEN, CURWITHIN, KERWITHY, or CARWITHIE, CALEB, Huntington, L. I. was rec. as freem. of Conn. 1664. DAVID, Salem 1649, or rather 1644, if Mr. Felt's refer. in Ann. 1. 168 and 175 mean one person, whose w. Grace unit. with the ch. 1643. Perhaps he is the same, wh. m. at Boston, 22 Sept. 1660, wid. Frances Oldham, but with her former h. it is diffic. to make any acquaint. DICKORY, Boston, shipmaster, d. 6 Sept. 1653, perhaps only trans. and may be the same as two yrs. bef. was here in big sh. ment. by Roger Williams in letters, 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. IX. 252 and 3, and by Davenport in the very mo. preced. the coming in last voyage, Ib. 295. JOSHUA, Boston, mariner, m. 6 Aug. 1657, Elizabeth d. of John Farnum, had Elizabeth b. 6 June 1659.
