CARY, DAVID, Bristol, s. prob. of John the first, had w. and d. there 1689. FRANCIS, Roxbury, d. 3 Sept. 1672, aged 71, says gr.stone, in Geneal. Reg. XIV. 52, but I entertain strong suspicion of error. JAMES, Charlestown 1639, came, as tradit. says, from Bristol, by w. Elinor had John, b. 29 July 1642; James, 7 Mar. 1644, d. soon; Nathaniel, 7 Mar. 1645; Jonathan, 15 Jan. 1647; Elizabeth 23 Sept. 1648; he never was freem. but d. 2 Nov. 1681, aged 81, as gr.stone tells. JOHN, Bridgewater, said to have come from neighb. of Bristol, Eng. at the age of 25, and set down first, 1637, at Duxbury, then hav. gr. of ld. m. June 1644, Elizabeth d. of Francis Godfrey, had John, b. 1645; Francis, 1647; Elizabeth 1649; and, at Braintree, James, 1652; at Bridgewater, Mary, 1664; Jonathan, 1656; David, 1658; Hannah, 1661; Joseph, 1663; Rebecca, 1666; Sarah, 1667; and Mehitable, 1670. He was the first town clk. and early his name was writ. Carew; but as the Eng. pronounce that name Cary, spell. soon foll. sound. Of his d. 2 Nov. 1681 is the date in report, against wh. suspicion of course aris. that for this the identity of James and John has been confound. Elizabeth m. William Brett the sec. and Rebecca m. 1686, Samuel Allen the third.

 JOHN, Bridgewater, s. of the preced. m. 1670, [[vol. 1, p. 345]] Abigail, d. of Samuel Allen the sec. had John, b. 1671, d. soon; Seth, 1672; John, again, 1674; Nathaniel, 1676; Eleazer, 1678; James,1680; and rem. to Bristol, there with w. and seven. ch. was liv. in 1689, and his w. was prob. Hannah. JONATHAN, Charlestown, s. of James, freem. 1682, by w. Hannah Winsor had two ch. bapt. 14 May 1682, whose names are not giv. on the ch. rec. but by town rec. as Mr. Wyman assures me, were James, b. 7 Dec. 1679; and Abigail, 13 Jan. 1682. An earlier ch. Eleanor, b. 10 Dec. 1677, d. in few days. Also he had bapt. Samuel, 1 Apr. 1683; Ebenezer, 17 Aug. 1684; and Freelove, 26 Feb. 1688; was deac. 1710, and his w. d. 14 Dec. 1715, aged a. 59. He d. 1737, and of his descend. were Rev. Thomas, II. C. 1761; and Rev. Samuel, H. C. 1804. JOSEPH, Norwich, had gr. of Id. 1687 in that pt. now Preston. NATHANIEL, Charlestown, br. of Jonathan, whose w. after barbarous treatm. in the infernal delusion of 1692, was by him secret. convey. to N. Y. there open. protect. by Gov. Fletcher. See Hutch. II. 47 and 8, but the gr. historian of Mass. mistook the name of the br. wh. had this afflict. as in the charm. Lectures on Witchcr. from p. 71 to 78, is shown by Upham. After the demons were some yrs. gone from C. he return. and with his w. Elizabeth was again rec. into the ch. as they had both been bef. when their ch. Elizabeth and Martha were bapt. 11 July 1680; Nathaniel, 12 Sept. foll.; John, 28 Jan. 1683; and Mary, 14 Jan. 1690. NICHOLAS, Salem 1637, may have been of Pemaquid 1674. Of this name, in 1838, eight had been gr. at Harv. and two at Yale.

EBENEZER, Roxbury, m. 13 Mar. 1690, Patience, d. of James Draper, had Mary, b. 20 July 1691; Jonathan, 1 Sept. 1693; and perhaps he rem. EDWARD, Watertown, rem. soon to Taunton, for wh. he was rep. 1640, and three yrs. more, but again rem. whither is unkn. JOHN, New London 1656, next yr. rem. to Windsor, and m.

JOHN, Simsbury, eldest s. of the preced. m. 12 Sept. 1684, Mary, d. of Thomas Olcott the sec. had John, b. 6 [[vol. 1, p. 346]] Aug. foll. d. soon, as did the mo. and he m. 1693, Sarah, d. of Joshua Holcomb, had John, b. 22 Aug. 1694; Daniel, 7 Mar. 1696; Mary, 1698; Jonathan, 15 Apr. 1701; Sarah, a. 1703; Hannah, a. 1709; and he d. 22 May 1733. JOSEPH, Narranganset in that pt. now Kingstown, had Joseph, b. 1678; William, 1684; Mary; Hannah; Margaret; John, 1692; and Emanuel, 1699.

RICHARD, Simsbury, s. of the first John of the same, m. 1 Sept. 1701, Amy, d. of Philip Reed of Concord, had Amy, b. a. 1702, d. soon; Amy, again, a. 1703; Richard, 1710 ; Timothy, a. 1711; Margaret, a. 1713; Edward, 5 Mar. 1715; Lydia, 15 Mar. 1718; Mary, 30 Jan. 1722; and he d. a. 1746.

THOMAS, Fairfield, rem. to the Dutch a. 1664, and is by Mather (wh. is always liberal in obloquy against adher. of George Fox), call. a villain, Magn. VII. 25. We hear not any reason for such epith. exc. his Quaker. habit. influence among the foll. nam. by the gr. ecclesiast. histor. "Case's crew," at Southold, L. I. where, he sorrowf. adds, "to this day (1699), the sect is kn." He was sev. times imprison. for his cause, and by such treatm. not prob. induc. to reject the inward light; and d. 1692, perhaps unm. certain. without issue. WILLIAM, Newport, among the freem. 1655. WILLIAM, Charlestown m. 28 Jan. 1686, Mary Starkey, WILLIAM, Simsbury, br. of Bartholomew, m. 1688, Elizabeth d. of Joshua Holcomb, had Elizabeth b.

His wid. m. 10 Mar. 1704, John Slater; next m. Thomas Marshall; and d. 26 Feb. 1762. This name was very com. in that region, and I count gr. in 1855, at Yale, ten, but none in Harv. or Dart. catal.

CASELEY, or CASLEY, EDWARD, Scituate 1638, rem. to Barnstable [[vol. 1, p. 347]] 1639, says Deane. JOHN, Barnstable 1640-9, may have been br. of the preced. WILLIAM, perhaps a br. of the preced. or even the f. had been freem. of Mass. 2 Nov. 1637, tho. his place of resid. is not found, but soon after he rem. to Sandwich, and this makes it prob. that he was first of Lynn; at S. he m. in Nov. 1639, a sis. of the w. of Rev. Marmaduke Matthews of Yarmouth, may have sett. at Barnstable, where long the name prevail. and spread thence in the last century, to Gorham, Me.

His w. d. 23 July 1692; and for sec. w. he took Elizabeth wid. of James Chase, wh. had former name Green, perhaps d. of Henry.

Sometimes this name is distort. to Cash.

CASTINE, or CAUSTINE, WILLIAM, Boston, had w. Isabel, wh. d. 25 [[vol. 1, p. 348]] Jan. 1654, but by w. Mary had Lydia, b. 22 Jan. 1655. It may be Costinge.

CASTLE, HENRY, Woodbury 1682, then resid. with Henry, jr. perhaps his s. and d. 2 Feb. 1698, being the first d. on rec. there, but to find wh. as his f. would be more agreea. to us. MATTHEW, Charlestown, m. 4 Aug. 1687, Mary Stowers. WILLIAM, Boston 1673, mariner.

CATCHAM, or CATCHEM. See Ketcham.

CATE, EDWARD, Portsmouth, was of the gr. jury 1684. JAMES, Portsmouth 1665, d. a. 1677, may have been f. or br. of the preced. JOHN, and WILLIAM, of New Hampsh. 1689, favor. jurisdict. of Mass.

CATES, JOHN, Windham, perhaps bef. 1686, but the time or cause of his com. to our country, is equal. unkn. There was a report, that he came from Virg. and possib. he was that passeng. from London in the sh. Safety 1635. Much idle conject. has been expend. on the reason of his withdr. from society, and liv. some time in a cave; and among the most absurd is, that he was a regicide. Perhaps he was only a misanthrop. humorist, perhaps had been a buccanier, and thot. seclusion his safest course. See Hinman. He built, 1689, the first ho. in the town, left ch. in Eng. as his will, 5 May 1696, shows. In it he gave ld. for a sch. more for the poor of W. and money, not (as popul. report was) plate to the ch. and d. 16 July, tho. his inv. appears 11th 1697. See Trumbull's Hist. 408.

Hinman, 123, 203, 58. By Porter I feel able to add, Jonathan, 1683, and Hannah, 1685. JOHN, Boston, came from Barbados, was only trans. visit. call. hims. writ.-master, in his will, made on board the Pink Mary, in Cape Cod harb. 21 Dec. 1685, pro. at B. 4 Jan. foll. After small gifts to the capt. of the vessel, and two fellow-passeng. he dispos. the cargo to his only s. Charles, and made Thomas Palmer excor. JOHN, Deerfield, came from Newark, N. J. bef. 1684, with his mo. [[vol. 1, p. 349]] Isabel, but they had some yrs. bef. gone thither from Conn. of course. The bapt. name of her first h. is unkn. for sec. she m. James Northam of Wethersfield, wh. d. 1662, and she rem. and had third h. Joseph Baldwin of Hadley. Catlin, the name of whose w. is not kn. had John, b. 1663, Joseph, Jonathan, and four or five ds. of wh. Elizabeth m. James Corse. She with her br. Joseph (wh. left s.

Waterford, and d. 25 Nov. 17. From him descends the modest and dilig. hist. of Norwich and New London. HUGH, Gloucester; prob. a Welchman, came with Rev. Richard Blinman, and first sat down, 1640, at Marshfield, rem. next yr. to Lynn, perhaps only for short season, was freem. 27 Dec. 1642, when he was of G. selectman. 1643-8, rep. 1650-2 but rem. to New London bef. begin. to serve under this last elect. and was selectman and rep. half the yrs. of his resid. there, and town clk. for all, rem. 1662 to Norwich, and was the first deac. on organiz. the ch. rep. also for this town 1663 and 4, and d. 1690, aged 90.

CAYME, ARTHUR, York 1680, took o. of alleg. that yr.

Thomas Spencer. WILLIAM, Kittery 1631, may have been s. of Humphrey or of the preced. for nothing is kn. but that he was call junr. and rem. to Boston, where by w. Mary he had Mary, b. Dec. 1644. Well has the name been perpet. and some descend. of Humphrey, or William, but wh. I kn. not, have part of the Newichwanuck est. to our day.

CHADDOCK, for this name, Coffin gives an alias Chadwick, that grew perhaps from the sound.
