He was freem. 1673, a merch. often voyag. betw. Eng. and our country, in one of his pass. was in the Speedwell, emb. at London, 30 May, and land. at B. 27 July 1656. His youngest d. m. 1 Dec. 1686, Stephen Minot. CHRISTOPHER, Salem, mariner, lost at sea a. 1698, as Felt, II. 244, tells, was, perhaps, s. of the preced.

[[vol. 1, p. 393]] EDMUND, Lynn 1636, rem. next yr. to Sandwich. EDMUND, Gloucester 1650, was town clk. 1656-65, by w. Agnes had Abigail; John; and Joseph, b. 16 Nov. 1650; and d. 26 Feb. 1667. His wid. m. 15 June 1668, Thomas Penny. Abigail m. William Sargent, and d. 8 Mar. 1711, aged 79. EDWARD, Haverhill 1646, perhaps m. a d. of Walter Tibbets of Gloucester, wh. calls him s.-in-law, names John and Joseph, prob. s. was a carpenter, and may have been in 1652 of Kennebunk, made freem. of Mass. 1653, and prob. in 1663 rem. to New Hampsh. But the true bapt. name, as by Hist. Coll. of Essex Inst. I. 9, is prov. was Edmund, the same person as the preced. Ano. EDWARD of Haverhill, perhaps s. of the preced. took o. of alleg. 28 Nov. 1677. EPHRAIM, Medfield, freem. 1673. GEORGE, Plymouth, m. 22 Jan. 1639, Alice Martin, wh. after his d. m. 5 Dec. 1644, Richard Bishop, and in 1648, was hang. for murder of Martha, d. of George, wh. was not his only ch. for in May 1649, the rec. shows provis. for his d. Abigail. GEORGE, Milford 1639, husbandman, had only s. John (excor. of his f.╒s will, wh. d. 1693, unm.), and six ds. and d. 1690, leav. good est. in his will of 25 Apr. prob. 20 June of that yr. nam. d. Sarah, then wid. of the famous capt. Joseph Sill, but had first been wid. of Reynold Martin, as also five ch. of her by Marvin. Other ds. were Hannah. wh. m. John Platt of Norwalk; Abigail m. Rev. Abraham Pierson; Ruth m. Robert Plumb; Rebecca m. John Brown; and Mary m. Samuel Clark. Their f. own. est. in Eng. had brs. there, John, Daniel and Edward. GEORGE, Milford, a contempo. of the preced. was call. carpenter for distinct. and this is all I kn. of him. GEORGE, Milford, was deac. often rep. 1668 to 76, had Thomas, George, Samuel, and Sarah, wh. m. Jonathan Law. GEORGE, Roxbury, was a fellmonger, inhab. of Boston bef. 1695, d. 3 Sept. 1696, leav. good est. giv. by his will, pro. 15 Oct. foll. to w. Ann, eldest s. George, to youngest d. Elizabeth £200, eldest d. Mary, in Eng. £40, s. Richard, d. Martha, w. of William Hannah, £60, and made her h. excor. But when, or where these ch. w ere b. or wh. was his w. are unkn. matters. Yet perhaps the Boston rec. ment. him as m. 3 Feb. 1690, Ann Lutterell. HENRY, Windsor 1640, rep. 1641-50; Assist. 1650-61, rem. to Hadley, there d. 23 Dec. 1675. His w. Jane had d. 1672, and as he had no ch. he gave most of his est. to relat. but good proport. to public use, as sch. at H. and to Harv. coll. HENRY, Newbury, s. of Nathaniel, m. 7 Nov. 1695, Elizabeth d. of Stephen Greenleaf, had Stephen, b. 21 Feb. 1697; Henry, 21 Nov. 1698; Judith, 15 Aug. 1700; and Sarah, 7 May 1702.

His w. d. 11 Dec. 1692; and he d. 20 July foll. a. 80 yrs. old. Elizabeth m. Joseph Buckminster. ISAAC, Falmouth, s. of Thaddeus, was tak. by the Fr. and Ind. 1690, carr. to Canada, after return rem. to Marlborough, m. Sarah Stow, perhaps d. of Samuel, had Martha, wh. d. at Grafton, 1794, aged, it is said, near 100; Sarah, b. 5 Aug. 1701; Mary, 31 Dec. 1705; Matthias; Jonathan, d. young; Isaac, 25 Mar. 1709; Jonathan, again, 1712; Rebecca, 30 Sept. 1716. His w. d. 17 May 1761, in 88th yr. and he d. 26 May 1768, perhaps at full 100.
JAMES, New Haven 1639, form. with Gov. Eaton and com. [[vol. 1, p. 394]] the civil compact 4 June, had Ebenezer, b. perhaps, 29 Nov. 1651; Susan, 1652; Samuel; James; and Mary; but rem. bef. 1669 to Stratford, and may have had ch. at both places. His w. was Deborah, d. of John Peacock. Perhaps she was mo. of all the ch. but he had 17 Oct. 1661, m. Ann, wid. of John Wakefield. JAMES, Plymouth, s. of Thomas, m. 7 Oct. 1657, Abigail, youngest d. of Rev. John Lothrop. JAMES, Boston, but call. sometimes of Roxbury, bec. he attend. ch. there, liv. at Muddy riv. by w. Elinor, in ch. rec. miscall. Elizabeth had Elizabeth and Mary, wh. we may suppose were bapt. 18 Jan. 1646, if the town rec. were authority instead of the rec. of ch. in wh. no such thing is found; Martha, b. 25 Apr. 1648; Hannah, 23 Dec. 1649; James, bapt. 11 Apr. 1652; Samuel, 9 Apr. 1654; John, 23 Mar. 1656; Abigail, 21 Mar. 1658; Mercy, 2 Sept. 1660; Aaron, 1 Mar. 1663; beside one d. that m. Walter Morse, as we learn from the will of her f. provid. for, but not nam. her. He d. 18 Dec. 1674. JAMES, New Haven, s. of James the first, was adm. freem. 1660, at Stratford, had James, b. 12 Feb. 1665; Sarah, 11 Jan. 1667; John, 17 Mar. 1669; Phebe, 15 Jan July 1675; Isaac, 9 Jan. 1678, d. soon; Isaac, again, 25 Sept. 1679; and Mary, 10 Jan. 1687. JAMES, Newport, youngest s. of the Hon. Jeremiah, m. Hope, a. of Nicholas Power of Providence, had Hope, b. 29 Dec. 1673; and Jonathan, a. 1681. He was a preach. but I kn.no more of him exc. that he d. 7 Dec. 1736, aged 87. JAMES, Roxbury, s. of James bef. ment. m. 27 Apr. 1681, Hannah, d. of Peleg Heath, had James, b. 4 Feb. 1682. His w. d. 30 May 1683, and he rem. to Cambridge, m. 24 Sept. 1685, Sarah, d. of Samuel Champney, had Sarah, b. next yr. wh. d. at 21 yrs.; Ebenezer, d. soon; Mercy, 18 Dec. 1690; Abigail, 31 May 1703; but betw. the last two prob. came Rachel and Benjamin, yet precise dates can hardly be found, as rec. fail in this space of time. JEREMIAH, Newport 1640, had been at Portsmouth, on the upper end of the isl. 1638, bef. N. was sett. was first constable of the town, treasur. of the Col. 1647, and Assist. 1648, when he was chief officer. He was not, as often said, br. nor even any kn. relat. of John, the well reput. f. of the Col. and d. Jan. 1652, leav. five s. Walter, b. a. 1639; Jeremiah; Latham; Weston, 2 July 1648; James, 1649; beside four ds. of wh. prob. two were older than Walter, Frances, wh. m. Randall Holden; and ano. the first w. of James Barker; Mary, b. 1641, wh. m. Gov. John Cranston, and, next, John Stanton, and d. 7 Apr. 1701; and Sarah, 1651, wh. perhaps was sec. w. of Peter Carr. JEREMIAH, Newport, s. of the preced. m. says the fam. geneal. Ann Audley. She may have been Hannah Odlyn, d. of John of Boston, wh. had much sympathy with the R. I. first sett. as hav. with most of them been ill treat. by the governm. of Mass. in Nov. 1637, for their errors in religious dogmas. To ea. of his ch. Susanna, Henry, James, Samuel, Weston, Frances, Mary, Ann, and Sarah are supplied ws. or hs. respectiv. by the fam. docum. but without names appended.
JOHN, Cambridge, freem. 6 Nov. 1632, rem. 1636, to Hartford with Hooker, thence, perhaps, to Milford, where his a. Elizabeth m. William Pratt of H. John, Boston, came, perhaps, with John Winthrop jr. in the Lion 1631, join. the ch. early, only seven names on the venera. copy of the roll (some yrs. bef. the first date of orig. rec. of our first ch.) [[vol. 1, p. 395]] interven. betw. the s. of the Gov. and this, and with him rem. 1633, from B. to plant the town of Ipswich. JOHN, New Haven 1639, that yr. unit. with first sett. in founda. of governm. He may have come in the Elizabeth to Boston from Ipswich in Co. Suffk. 1634, aged 22; and was made clk. of the milit. comp. Feb. 1648; had John, b. 1637; Samuel, 1639, both bapt. at N. H. 1640, Mary, wh. as Porter says, m. William Chatterton; and Esther 1 Mar. 1646. His inv. was of 13 May 1648. JOHN, Newport, the disting. author of "Ill News from N. E." a physician, came first, he says, to Boston in Nov. 1637, thence driv. the next yr. as a favorer of Mrs. Hutchinson, went to R. I. and is venerat. as f. of the settlem. at N. By fam. rec. he was of Bedfordsh. third s. of Thomas and Rose, b. 8 Oct. 1609; bec. treasr. of the Col. 1649, and was sent to Eng. two yrs. after to prevail on the Council of State to revoke the extra. powers giv. to Coddington, but on his coming to Boston to embark was imprison. 1651. In 1652 he pub. at London his valua. tract, a narrative of the persecut. of his friends here; after long serv. in Eng. he was made dept.-gov. of the unit. col. of R. I. and Providence Planta. in 1669, and 70, again agent to Eng. but d. here 20 Apr. 1676, in his will, made that day, call. hims. a. 66 yrs. old. He names in it two ws. the first a d. of John Harges of Bedfordsh. and the name of the other is unkn. yet he had no ch. says Backus, I. 443. By three of his brs. the name has been hon. perpet. in that prov. and state. Ano. physician was JOHN of Newbury 1638, wh. bef. com. from Eng. had m. Martha, sis. of Sir Richard Saltonstall, was freem. 22 May 1639, and perhaps rep. the same yr. rem. ten yrs. after to Boston, and was noted in his profess. as also for keep. fine horses. He d. Nov. 1664, in his will of 26 Aug. preced. he ment. wid. Martha, made extrix. s. John, d. Jemima, wh. had m. 6 Nov. 1656, Robert Drew of B. and the ch. of Jemima, names John, and Elizabeth His wid. d. 19 Sept. 1680, aged 85. Curious confus. is obs. in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 14 and 15, where are copies, correct. from Prob. Rec. Vols. I. and IV. wherein the wid. is twice call. Martha in the will, yet a few, very few mos. after the inv. purport. to be of her late h. as est. of Mr. John C. is said to be sw. by Elizabeth The amt. was large, and part of it was stoves for sav. fire wood, for wh. the Gen. Ct. had giv. him patent, 1652 and 6 for his life. How much it anticip. Dr. Franklin's, of a hundred yrs. later, I suppose can never be learn. but if any one will overcome the above ment. contradict. between will and inv. by find. the orig. papers, he will be more happy than my dilig. search.
JOHN, Weymouth 1653. JOHN, Hartford, an orig. propr. rem. to Farmington, there d. 22 Nov. 1712, at gr. age. He had John, wh. d. unm. 1709; Matthew; Ebenezer, bapt. 10 Aug. 1690, d. soon; and nine ds.

JOHN, Saybrook 1640, may have bef. been at Wethersfield, and later at Milford, rep. for S. 1651 to 1664, is nam. in the royal chart. of 1662, and was some yrs. rep. for Milford, had s. John; Joseph, wh. d. bef. his f. and perhaps others, beside sev. ds. and sec. w. Mary, wid. of John Fletcher; and d. 1676. JOHN, Springfield, m. 1647, Elizabeth d. of Rowland Stebbins, and d. 1684, leav. John; Sarah, b. 27 Dec. 1649; and Mary. JOHN, Hampton, d. 18 May 1658. JOHN, Saybrook, perhaps s. of the John of S. bef. ment. m. 16 Oct. 1650, Rebecca Parker, had Rebecca, b. 26 Jan. 1653; John, 17 Nov. 1655; James, 29 Sept. 1657, d. at two yrs. and the f. was by a cart 21 Sept. 1677. His wid. m. a Spencer, and d. 9 Jan. 1683. Very difficult it may be at Saybrook to arrange all the Johns, for a gravestone at Lyme, the E. part, formerly, of S. stands over one, wh. d. 1719, aged 82, of wh. I find not b. Possib. the numeral may be wrong.

JOHN, Newport, s. perhaps of Joseph, m. Feb. 1671 Jane Fletcher, had a d. b. 14 Feb. 1672, and the mo. d. Apr. foll. and the ch. d. Mar. 1673. JOHN, Boston, mariner, and merch. m.

Ebenezer Pemberton, and had two other hs. JOHN, Exeter, call. sen. when he took o. of fidel. 30 Nov. 1677; but perhaps that was only to disting. him from ano. JOHN, call. jun. wh. at the same place, on the same day, went thro. the same formality. JOHN, Boston, physician, s. of that John, wh. came to B. from Newbury, perhaps b. in Eng. freem. 1673, was rep. 1689, and 90, and d. 17, was bur. 19 Dec. 1690. By w. Martha, d. of John, not of William Whittingham, had, beside Elizabeth perhaps the youngest, wh. was w. of Richard Hubbard, mariner, and, next, m. 18 Aug. 1703, Rev. Cotton Mather, as his sec. w.

Elizabeth whose surname is not heard, unless it were Williams, outliv. him but few days, and in her will of 2 Jan. names Nathaniel Williams excor. call. him br. wh. may mean more than ch. relat. and gives prop. to Elizabeth (the d. of her h. by former w.) wh. was then unm. JOHN, New Haven, m. 1661, Sarah, d. of George Smith, but may have had sec. w. Mary, as had one John there 1686. JOHN, Springfield, s. of John of the same, took o. of alleg. 31 Dec. 1678.
JOHN, Northampton, s. of William, was rep. 1699, 1700,1, and 3, and d. 3 Sept. 1704.

I presume he was that skilful navigator, sent with Andrews by the Mass. governm. in 1653, to ascert. the latit. of a point on the sea shore at the E. as in Belkn. I. 57, is explain.

His w. was Margaret, wh. d. 1694, but her surname is not heard. In the will of his br.

SAMUEL, New Haven, s. of James the first, m. 7 Nov. 1672, Hannah, eldest d. of John Tuttle (wh. d. 21 Dec. 1706), had Samuel, b. 7 Aug foll.; Daniel, 6 Mar. 1675; John, 23 Feb. 1677; Joseph, 20 Oct. 1678; Stephen, 24 Dec. 1680; Nathaniel, 20 Feb. 1683; Hannah, 6 Apr. 1685; Phineas, 27 June 1687; and Abigail, 6 Sept. 1689.SAMUEL, Boston, by u.

More than one other Samuel was of Boston in early days, but I have not learn. any thing of either to convince me, that he was inhab. here bef. 1692. THADDEUS, Plymouth, m. 1663, Elizabeth d. of Michael Mitton, was lieut. in the war with the E. Ind. 1689, and was k. 1690 by them at F. His wid. d. at Boston 1736, aged 91. Of his ch. Isaac is above ment. ano. was a wid. Hervey at Boston, 1719, and Elizabeth was w. of capt. Edward Tyng. Willis, I. 208.
THOMAS, Plymouth, a carpenter, came in the Ann 1623, m. Susanna, d. of wid. Mary Ring, (bef. 1631, when in her mo.'s will he is nam.), had Andrew; James; Susanna, wh. m. 3 Nov. 1658, Barnabas Lothrop; William; John; and Nathaniel. He was rep. 1651 and 5, m. sec. w. 1664, wid. Alice Nichols, d. of Richard Hallet, liv. in 1670 at Harwich, where he had third w. Elizabeth Crow, perhaps wid. of John, and d. 24 Mar. 1697, aged, says the gr.stone, 98, or more prob. only 92, since in 1664 he [[vol. 1, p. 401]] made. that he was a. 59 yrs. old. But to this suffic. longev. the " Guide to Plymouth," 255, would make alarming addit. in his note, " suppos. mate of the Mayflower." We can hardly doubt, that the oldest surv. of that memo. voyage, within the bounds of the Old Colony, would have been too well known to need a weak tradit. to lean on; and that officer of 1620 must have been older than the oldest liv. in 1697, had he not been d. many yrs. bef. In 1627 this Thomas, not the mate, had sh. in the div. of lds. as com. in the Ann, not Mayflower. THOMAS, Newport 1638, elder br. of John of the same, bapt. soon after b. 31 Mar. 1600, one of the found. of the first ch. of Bapt. 1641, and d. 2 Dec. 1674, without ch. leav. est. to childr. of his br. Joseph in his will, where alone we find their names. THOMAS, Boston, merch. had first liv. at Dorchester, 1636, selectman there 1641 and 2, ar. co. 1638, freem. 14 Mar. 1639, a capt. in 1653, and after head of the Boston reg. rep. 1651, and many yrs. more, speaker in 1662, and sev. yrs. later, chos. an Assist. 1673, and d. 28 July 1678. His first w. was Mary, by wh. he had Mehitable, b. 18 Apr. 1640; Elizabeth 22 May 1642; and Deborah, bapt. 9 June 1644. Other ch. were Thomas, the only s. and Leah, perhaps, both b. in Eng. but his will, made shortly bef. his d. instr. us that she was w. of Thomas Baker, Deborah, w. of Nathaniel Byfield, and Elizabeth Stevens among ds. and sev. gr.ch. with conting. provision for gr. gr.ch. and his wid. was Ann. Surnames of either w. are not kn. High should be our esteem of C. wh. was one of only two mem. of the legislat. the Boston reps. in 1656, that voted against the law for putt. to d. Quakers, wh. ret. after banishm. Dr. Harris, with doubtful propriety, suppos. him to be one of three brs. Bray, Joseph, and Thomas, of D. 1630, commemo. in epit. on a gr.stone:
Ano. THOMAS of Boston, early, adm. of the ch. 18 July 1640, and perhaps the freem. of 2 June 1641, was a blacksmith, and may have liv. on N. side of the harbor, call. Winisemet, now Chelsea, by w. Elizabeth had Cornelius, b. Dec. 1639, bapt. 19 July foll.; Jacob, 16. bapt. 22 May 1642; Rachel, 6 July 1646, d. at 7 yrs. and perhaps Benjamin, 4 May 1656. THOMAS, New Haven 1645, prob. d. bef. 1648. THOMAS, Lynn 1640, rem. to Reading, there d. 1693. THOMAS, Ipswich 1663.
THOMAS, Boston, call. jr. but tho. b. in Eng. he may not be s. of the Hon. Thomas, yet he liv. prob. some time, earlier or later, at Dorchester, was of ar. co. 1644, more than once its capt. rep 1673-6, and d. 13 Mar. 1683. He was one of the wealthiest merch. of B. and by his will of 15 Aug. 1679, anew declar. 22 May 1680, pro. 22 Mar. 1683, it is judg. that only two ch. were then liv. Mehitable Warren, and Elizabeth wh. had m. 28 May 1661, Mr. John [[vol. 1, p. 402]] Freak, and was then w. of Elisha Hutchinson. To his wid. Elizabeth he gives £80 a yr. and £50 in plate, to s. Warren £100, and to eldest s. of his d. Mehitable W. at 21 yrs. of age, or m. with consent of parents, £1000; but if she have no s. this to be equal. div. among ds. if God give them, also to ea. of said ds. at 21 yrs. or m. with consent £300; to s. Elisha H. £100, and to eldest s. of his d. Elizabeth H. at 21 yrs. or m. with consent £1000; then to many relat. in Eng. to sis. Ann Haynes, Dorothy Muscate, and John Smith, sis. Stoughton, cous. i. e. neph. Thomas Smith; then to the ch. of wh. he was mem. £50, to ten of his poor kindr. £5 ea. to the poor of Boston £.50, to the poor of Dorchester £20, to the art.comp.to purch. arms for poor £10 with this striking final provis. "if both my ds. fail of posterity," he gives "for a good hospital in Boston £1500," and he made overseers his kinsm. William Stoughton, capt. John Richards, Mr. William Tailer, and Mr. Thomas Smith, and £10 to ea. of them. It is not easy to discrimin. betw. this Thomas and the first of the name, wh. was the speaker. Perhaps in Geneal. Reg. V. 398, the two in some particul. are confus. THOMAS, Reading, had first w. Else, wh. d. 28 June 1658, and he m. 31 Aug. foll. Mary, had Elizabeth b. 3 Nov. 1659; and Thomas, 13 Oct. 1661. THOMAS, Hartford, s. of Nicholas, made freem. 1658, had (says Hinman, 203) Thomas, Daniel, and Joseph, THOMAS, Boston, early liv. on Noddle's isl. had d. Sarah, that m. 11 June 1662, George Hiskett. THOMAS, New Haven, master of the iron works there 1669. THOMAS, Ipswich, freem. 1674. THOMAS, Scituate 1674, by Deane lightly conject. to be s. or gr.s. of the mate of the Mayflower, because he came from Plymouth, m. 1676, Martha, d. of Richard Curtis, had Thomas, Joseph, Daniel, Samuel, Nathaniel, Mercy, Deborah, Rachel, Ann, Charity, and Mary. Bef. that m. he serv. in Philip's war. THOMAS, Salem, m. 4 Mar. 1676 Mary Voaker, that seems a strange name, had Thomas b. 14 Apr. 1677. THOMAS, Chelmsford, s. of Jonas, ord. 1677, by w. Mary had Lucy; Elizabeth both liv. to m. beside sev. wh. d. young; Jonas, b. 20 Dec. 1684; and Thomas, 28 Sept. 1694. His w. d. 2 Dec. 1700, and he m. 2 Oct. 1702, Elizabeth d. of Rev. Samuel Whiting, and d. 7 Dec. 1704. He was an able man, and by the exercise of strong common sense, that (in so early a day) too many of the clergy were afraid to show, saved one woman, accus. as a witch. THOMAS, Yarmouth, m. 15 Feb. 1682, Rebecca, d. of the sec. John Miller of the same, had Susanna, b. 21 Feb. 1684; and Thomas, 25 Dec. 1685. THOMAS, Charlestown, m. 15 Oct. 1684, Sarah, d. of Joseph Lynde of the same, had Thomas, b. 22 June foll. He liv. on Malden side, I presume, d. early, and his wid. m. 12 Jan. 1692, Seth Sweetwater. THOMAS, Newbury, s. of Nathaniel, by w. Sarah had Sarah, b. 25 Dec. 1690; Thomas, 2 Sept. 1692; Nathaniel, 23 Oct. 1694; Martha, 12 Apr. 1696; Mary, 16 Aug. 1698; and Daniel, 26 Jan. 1701.
TIMOTHY, [[vol. 1, p. 403]] Boston, an import. man, was constable 1693; rep. 1700, capt. and some yrs. selectman. He was s. of the first Jonas by sec. w. d. 15 June 1737, aged 80. He had large share in settlem. of Bristol, lib. there, 1689, with w. and five ch. and his will gave all his est. (exc. L20. to the poor of Dr. Colman's ch.) in equal sh. to his seven ch. Jonas, Sarah Paine, Mary Ruck, Margaret Fitch, Catharine Drowne, and heirs of Abigail Parrot, and of Prudence Kneeland, dec. and nam. Bryant Parrot and John Kneeland guardns. of their respective ch. mak. s. Jonas, Shem Drowne, and Joseph Fitch excors. TRISTRAM, or THURSTON, Plymouth, came from Ipswich, Co. Suffk. in the Francis 1634, aged 44, prob. with w. Faith, tho. not nam. in the list of the custom ho. certain. with d. Faith, 15, wh. m. 6 Jan. 1635, Edward Dotey, and next m. 14 Mar. 1667, John Phillips, and surv. him. He had rem. to Duxbury, and d. 6 Dec. 1661; had s. Thurston, and Henry, both imbec. put under guardians. URIAH, Roxbury, s. of Hugh, by w. Joanna, in Boston, had Uriah, b. 5 Oct. 1677; but by w. Mary had at R. Thomas, 29, bapt. 30 Nov. 1679; John, 10, bapt. 12 Feb. 1682; Mary, bapt. 26 Aug. 1683, at the same time with her br. Uriah; and a ch. b. in Apr. 1685, that d. soon; Hannah; Richard; rem. 1693 to Watertown, and had Peter, 12 Mar. 1694, H. C. 1712, a celebr. min. of Danvers, progenit. of a num. line; Benjamin, 6 Nov. 1696; Nathaniel, 20 June 1698; and Samuel, 15 July 1700. Soon after his w. d. and he m. 21 Nov. of that yr. third w. Martha Pease, had Susanna, 13 Nov. 1701, d. young; and Pease, bapt. 2 Aug. 1703. But the gr.stone inscript. makes w. Hannah, aged 25, d. 28 Feb. 1682, as in Geneal. Reg. XIV. 52, and this, or Bond, 160, must be wrong. He was selectman 1699 and 1700; and d. 26 July 1721, in his will of 27 May preced. of wh. s. Richard was excor. names w. liv. ch. Peter, Richard, Benjamin, Uriah, Nathaniel, Samuel, Mary Kimball, and Hannah Clark, and for the wid. and ch. of his s. John, as well as for Elizabeth Hastings on acco. of dec. s. Thomas, was tender remembr. yet it is not seen in Bond, that s. Pease was ment. in it. The name is pervert. to Uzijah in Geneal. Reg. V. 394. WALTER, Newport, eldest s. of Jeremiah (an absurd tradit. that he was b. a. 1637, on the ocean, prob. had its origin from the sound of his name, Water), by first w. Content, bur. 27 Mar. 1666, had, perhaps, near half of his ch. but one was a s. whose name is not told, and only Mary, b. 11 Jan. or Feb. 1662, is ment. By sec. w. m. 1666, Hannah, d. of Richard Scott sec. of N. wh. d. 24 July 1681, he had Hannah, 28 Oct. 1667; beside other ds. Catharine, 1 May 1669; Content, 1 Aug. 1671; and Deliverance, 16 June 1678. His s. Jeremiah, b. 21 Feb. or Mar. 1674, wh. d. young, was prob. his only one, if Francis, b. 17 Jan. or Feb. 1673, were a d. as is supposed. The third w. was Freeborn, d. of famous Roger Williams, wid. of Thomas Hart, wh. he m. 6 Mar. 1683, and wh. d. 10 Dec. 1709. Late in life he m. 1711 fourth w. Sarah, d. of Matthew Prior of L. I. wid. of John Gould. He was a Quaker, and emin. for attract. confidence of his brethr. had been dept.-gov. bef. 1676, in wh. yr. of trial he was chos. gov. again in 1686, made one of Andros' Counc. by K. James II. when he unit. the N. E. cols. and gov. again after the separat. 1696, 7 and last in 1700, and d.22 May 1714, aged 74. Hannah m. 26 Sept. or Nov. 1691, the first Thomas Rodman.
WESTON, Newport, br. of the preced. m. 25 Dec. 1668, Mary, eldest d. of Peter, not Nicholas (as sometimes said) Easton, [[vol. 1, p. 404]] had Mary, b. 11 Jan. 1670; John, 15 July 1672; Weston, 18 Feb. 1675, d. soon; Weston, again, 15 Apr. 1677; and Jeremiah, 23 Nov. 1685. Yet this last may have been ch. of his sec. w. Rebecca, d. of Edward Thurston. WILLIAM, Ipswich, came prob. in the fleet with Winthrop desir. in Oct. 1630, adm. was freem. and was sw. 18 May foll. went with the earliest sett. 1633, to I. and may have rem. to other town bef. his d. for we kn. nothing more of him. WILLIAM, Watertown 1631, freem. 22 May 1639, by w. Margery, had Mary, b. 10 Dec. 1640; Elizabeth 26 Nov. 1642; Lydia; and rem. to Wolburn, there had Hannah, 3 Feb. 1646. He d. 15 Mar. 1682, aged 87, and his wid. d. 11 Oct. 1694, aged 95. Mary m. 27 Dec. 1655 (rather young) William Locke; Elizabeth m. 20 Dec. 1659, George Brush, both of Woburn; Hannah m. 1667, William Frissell of Concord; and Lydia had two ds. and was a wid. when in his will of 10 Dec. 1681, her f. provid. for them. A careful writer in Geneal. Reg. V. 248, 9, conject. that this man emb. at London in the Plain Joan, and his w. in the Primrose, in May and July respectiv. 1635, both for Virg. but he next yr. own. to me, that he was satisf. of the contra.
