WILLIAM, Duxbury, s. of Thomas of Plymouth, m. Martha, d. of Samuel Nash, was surveyor of highways 1659, rem. prob. to Bridgewater, and may have m. 1 Mar. 1660, at P. Sarah Woolcot, whose f. is unkn. to me. He made his will 3 Jan. 1687, and soon after d. leav. as is thot. neither w. nor ch. WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Ann had Joseph, b.10 Sept. 1659. Ano. WILLIAM of Boston m. 18 Sept. 1661, Martha, d. of George Farr of Lynn, had Samuel, b. 28 June 1663; John, 3 Apr. 1666; and Mary, 22 Mar. 1668. WILLIAM, Lynn, perhaps s. of William of the same, m. 23 Aug. 1669, Elinor Dearnford, as Felt gives the name in Geneal. Reg. V. 95, rem. I conject. to Boston (where his w. on rec. is Ellen), and had Joanna, b. 22 Aug. 1670. WILLIAM, Northampton, s. of the first William of the same, m. 15 July 1680, Hannah, d. of Elder John Strong, had Hannah, b. 5 May 1681; Abigail, 25 Jan. 1683, d. at 4 yrs.; William; Jonathan, 13 May 1688; Thomas, 14 Apr. 1690; Joseph, 1691; Benoni, 1 Feb. 1693; and his w. d. 10 days after. By sec. w. Mary be had Timothy, 9 Oct. 1695; and Gershom, 18 Nov. 1697. He was freem. 1690, and rem. to Lebanon a. 1700, and was a promin. man; but whether he had more ch. or when he d. is uncert. WILLIAM, Saybrook, m. 7 Mar. 1678, Hannah, d. of the sec. Francis Griswold. WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Rachel had William, b. 30 Dec. 1679, was a capt. and the same, or more prob. ano. by w. Rebecca had William, b. 31 Mar. 1681; and either was, or even a third, perhaps, the freem. of 1690. WILLIAM, Boston, br. of the Hon. John, was rep. 1720-2, & 5. See Hutch. II. On this copious name, in some fam. using e instead of a, and in more end. with e, it seem. best to have uniform. spell as there exists nothing but confus. in the variety, I have bestow. gr. labor, but feel sure, that many omiss. may be detect. and ought to rejoice if graver failure be not found. Grad. at Harv. count 29, at Yale 27, at Dart. 10 in 1829, prob. 30 more at the other N. E. coll. of wh. at Harv. twelve were clerg. and above twenty as the aggreg. of the other Inst.

CLARK, JOHN, Watertown, m. 5 Feb. 1644, Sarah Cady, perhaps sis. of Nicholas, but Bond, 162, calls the w. Mary Cassell, had Sarah, b. 4 Oct. 1647; perhaps John; and Gershom, 7 Sept. 1650, wh. prob. d. young; rem. to Hadley, and d. 1690, leav. no ch. but giv. his est. to ch. of John and of Sarah his ch. This d. m. 13 Dec. 1667, John Perry of W. Bond's acco. makes the sec. w. of Clary to be Sarah, and that she d. 23 Dec. 1681; but perhaps p. 742 explains some former part of his narr. JOHN, Hatfield, 8. of the preced. m. 1670, Ann Dickinson, at Northfield d. 1688, perhaps shot by Ind. He left John, Joseph, and Mary.

CLAYS, JOHN, Casco 1665. See Hutch. Coll. 398. It may be suppos. he is the same as the Salem John, without final s.

CLAYTON, THOMAS, Dover 1650, perhaps rem. to R. I. may have been f. of Ann, sec. w. of Gov. Nicholas Easton, and next, Gov. Henry Bull; and of Sarah, wh. m. 4 Mar. 1674, Matthew Borden.

Margaret Fish, he had Abigail, 23 Apr. 1700; and Timothy, Aug. 1702. it is suppos. that all of this name, sometimes writ. Cleveland, derive from Moses the first; and in 1834 seven had been gr. at Yale, five at Harv. and eleven at other N. E. coll. beside the honora. M. D. to eight more.

CLEMENT, CLEMENS, CLEMENTS, or CLEMENCE, ABRAHAM, Newbury, m. 10 Mar. 1683, Hannah Gove, prob. d. of Edward of Hampton, had Edmund, b. 3 Mar. 1684, rem. to Hampton, and there, Coffin says, had seven more. Perhaps he was s. of the first Robert of Haverhill, and took o. of alleg. 28 Nov. 1677. AUSTIN or AUGUSTINE, Dorchester, a painter, came from Southampton in the James of London, Apr. 1635, but may have been on this side of the water in 1632; yet greater is the prob. that he went home in 1636, and came again in May 1637, by the Mary Ann of Yarmouth, tho. against either conject. strong suggest. arise. by w. Elizabeth he had Elizabeth prob. b. in Eng. certain. the eldest ch.; Samuel, b. 29 Sept. 1635; Joanna, 19 Nov.1638, d. soon; John, 21 Oct. 1639, wh. prob. d. young; and was freem. 25 May 1636, rem. to Boston 1652, but after some yrs. went back to D. there d. 1 Oct. 1674.

JOHN, Haverhill 1645, m. 1649, perhaps as sec. w. Sarah, d. of John Osgood of Andover, had Rebecca, I suppose to be meant by the name (call. in the will of gr.f. O. next yr. Bakah), perhaps others, may have been 1651 at Marblehead, was rep. 1654, and d. by shipwreck on voyage to Eng. not long after. JOHN, Haverhill, s. of Robert, sw. alleg. 28 Nov. 1677, m. 28 Sept. 1688, Elizabeth Richardson, perhaps d. of Joseph of Woburn, and rem. to Lynn. RICHARD, Providence, perhaps s. of Thomas, by w.

ROBERT, Haverhill, br. of John, came, it is said, from London 1642, bring. many ch. was rep. 1647-53, had admin. on est. of br. John, and d. 27 Sept. 1658, in his will names oldest s. Job; Robert; John; Abraham; Daniel; Moses Pingree, h. of his d. Abigail; John Osgood, wh. m. 15 Nov. 1653, his d. Mary; and Abraham Morrill, wh. had m. 10 June 1645, his d. Sarah. He is strang. call.

Deborah he had Augustine, b. 20 Apr. 1669; Samuel, 18 July 1670; both bapt. 2 May 1675; Hannah, b. 5 Nov. 1673; and Rebecca, 7 July 1678. THOMAS, Providence 1645, is among, the freem. 1655, and was too brave, or too old, to leave the place in Philip's war. by w. Elizabeth he had Elizabeth and perhaps Richard, certain. s. Content. WILLIAM, Cambridge 1636, was unhappy with his w. separat. from her, and desir. div. 1656. But if her name was Martha, as is prob. he bec. free, by her d. 10 Dec. 1659, to m. 3 Apr. foll. Ann Taylor, and in 1672 gave to Daniel Hudson all his est. on condit. of support for hims. and w. Ann for the resid. of their lives. Even with Jackson's aid, as he ment. no ch. I am not able to disting. him from ano. WILLIAM of Cambridge, call. jun. wh. d. 16 July 1669. WILLIAM, Boston, ar. co. 1662, m. Mary, d. of Joseph Rock, and of him I hear no more. With or without final s, and without t in some fams. the name may be the same.

CLESSON, MATTHEW, Northampton, an Irish serv. of one of the early inhabs. m. 1670, Mary, d. of Nathaniel Phelps, had nine ch. of wh. Mary, prob. eldest, d. 11 Dec. 1671, and ano. Mary, d. 15 Apr. 1687; was freem. 1690, rem. to Deerfield, where live descend.

CLEVERLY, JOHN, Braintree 1669, a blacksmith, freem. 1671, when he was mem. of the first ch of Boston, and his name is pervert. to [[vol. 1, p. 409]] Cleanesby on the rec. as transcr. by Paige in Geneal. Reg. III. 241, or Cleavesby by Pulsifer in Mass. Col. Rec. IV. pt. 2, p. 585, yet prob. the first wrong to his good name was the fault of Mr. Secr. Rawson, or of his careless sub-official. But the strangeness of the surname might have stimulat. a doubt. By w. Sarah, wh. d. 25 Oct. 1692, aged 54, he had Stephen, wh. d. 10 Mar. 1692, aged 19, perhaps other ch. was a lieut. and d. 1703.

CLEVERTON, THOMAS, Newport, is among the freem. 1655.

CLEVES, or CLEAVES, BENJAMIN, Beverly, youngest s. of William of the same, b. little more than a yr. after the extra-judic. murder of his gr.f.

GEORGE, Falmouth, came in 1630, I think, from Plymouth, in Devonsh. and sat down, first, at Spurwink, or Scarborough, and in two yrs. rem. a little further E. to be the earliest inhab. of F. no doubt drawn thither by its superior harbor, was of the gr. jury 1640, unit. with Richard Tucker of Saco, both in trade, and ld. speculat. thereby promot. gr. discord a. patents. He had Elizabeth wh. m. first, Michael Mitton, next, a Harvey, and d. 1681; but whether bless. with other ch. is not told. Adm. freem. 1658, of Mass. he was rep. 1663, and d. a. 1667, prob. a very old man, for he testif. in 1663, that his w. Joan was of 87 yrs. Copious details of him are in Willis and Folsom. See also Winthrop I. 231; II. 256; and Sullivan, 312-6.

Sec. w. he took 23 Aug. 1723, Rebecca Corning; and 21 Aug. 1720, a third w. and he d. 14 Sept. 1753. WILLIAM, Roxbury, m. 4 Nov. 1659, Sarah, d. of William Chandler, had Sarah, b. 12 Aug. 1660. As no more appears on the rec. exc. censure of his w. by the ch. 1670, it might be infer. that he rem. but he was k. at Sudbury fight, 21 Apr. 1676. His wid. m. it is said, three other hs. WILLIAM, Beverly, m. Martha, d. of Giles Corey, that sufferer of the horrible punishm. of press. to d. never inflict. on any other in N. E. had John, b. 11 Oct. 1676; Elinor, 1678; Martha, 1681; and for sec. w. had Margaret, sis. of the first w. and by her, William, 23 July 1686; Hannah, 31 Mar. 1688; Robert, 21 July 1689; [[vol. 1, p. 410]] Ebenezer, 13 Oct. 1691; and Benjamin, 23 Oct. 1693.

JOHN, Hampton 1658, m. 18 Aug. 1670, Sarah, d. of deac. William Godfrey prob. for sec. w. as he seems to have sev. ch. at that time, certain. Hannah, wh. m. 20 NOV. 1677, Luke Malone; and prob. two or three s. was freem. 1676, prob. for third w. had Bridget, wid. of John Huggins, and d. 1694, aged 80. JOHN, Lynn, freem. 1678, some yrs. bef. was of Salem, d. 17 June 1698, aged 68. JOHN, Hampton, s. of John of the same, took o. of alleg. 25 Apr. 1678, had John, b. 6 Feb. 1687.

CLIFT, WILLIAM, Marshfield, m. 1691, says Deane, Lydia, d. of Samuel Willis of Scituate, and d. 17 Oct. 1722.

CLIFTON, THOMAS, was freem. of Mass. 2 June 1641, yet of what town a resid. is unkn. his name wh. in the print. list is giv. Clipton, stands between an inhab. of Dorchester and one of Concord, but rem. with early sett. 1643 to Rehoboth, and at last sett. in R. I. there by w. Mary had Patience, b. 2 July 1646, wh. m. 4 Sept. 1664, John Beere. Ano. ch. prob. elder, with the soft name of Hope, was banish. under pain of d. for return. from Mass. as a Quaker, 1658.

CLISBY, CLEESBY, or CLESBY, EZEKIEL, Boston, brot. by his uncle John in 1670, aged 7, by w. Sarah had Ezekiel, b. 25 Nov. 1689, and was sw. freem. 1690. EZEKIEL, Charlestown, s. of the preced. m. 21 Feb. 1715, Abigail, d. of Nathaniel Frothingham. JOHN, Charlestown, went home 1669 to bring here, next yr. four ch. of a br. dec. whose wid. was Elizabeth of wh. we have names only of Mary, 11 yrs. old, and John and Ezekiel, ea. 7, but the youngest, a. 5 yrs. d. soon after arr. His w. was Hannah, and he d. Dec. 1695. She d. 26 July 1724, aged 86 by gr.stone, 88 by rec.

CLOADE, ANDREW, Boston, wine-cooper, m. 29 Sept. 1633, Elizabeth Bugby, had Elizabeth b. 13 Sept. foll. wh. d. at one yr.; Mary, 22 July 1656 and he d. early in 1664, his inv. of £40 being brot. in by his wid. in Apr. of that yr.

CLOATHER, JEREMIAH, Weymouth, was a soldier, 1676, on Conn. riv.

CLOSE, THOMAS, Greenwich 1672-97.

CLOUGH, EBENEZER, Boston 1690, by w. Martha had John, bapt. 4 Mar. 1694; Martha, 26 May 1695; Mary, 19 July 1697; Ebenezer, 19 Mar. 1699, d. soon, as did his mo. and by w. Thankful had Ebenezer, [[vol. 1, p. 411]] again, 27 Jan. 1702, d. young; John, 18 May 1704; William, 21 Feb. 1707; Susanna, 23 Aug. 1709; Mary, 25 June 1711; Elizabeth 23 Sept. 1714; Ebenezer, again, 29 Nov. 1716; and John, 9 Feb. 1720. Under his will of 3 Jan. 1724, pro. 27 of same, the wid. and her ch. alone have portions of est. to the exclus. of ch. by first w. exc. that to Elias Parkman, s. of his d. Martha £40. are giv. with an apology, "bec. he will have considerable, wh. I ought to have had with my first w. wh. was his gr.mo." JOHN, Watertown, tailor, came in the Elizabeth 1635, aged 22, was freem. 18 May 1642, by w. Jane had Elizabeth b. 16 Dec. 1642; Mary, 30 July 1644; Sarah, 28 June 1646; John, 9 Mar. 1648. But he had sec. w. Susanna, tho. neither the d. of former w. nor m. of this is heard of, when he convey. his message to William Shattuck of W. and he rem. to Salisbury. Other ch. too he had, as Thomas, 29 May 1651; Martha, 21 Mar. 1654; and Samuel, 26 Feb. 1657, yet we may hardly be light to give the sec. w. more than the two last, or to deny her half a doz. His w. d. 16 Jan. 1680, and he d. 26 July 1691. JOHN, Charlestown 1632, was of Boston soon after, by w. Elizabeth had Priscilla, b. 28 Jan. 1655. JOHN, Hartford, freem. of Conn. 1654, may have been f. of that JOHN, wh. little over ten yrs. later was petitnr. for the planta. of Killingworth. JOHN, Boston, feltmaker, was call. jun. in 1674, and may have been s. of the former Boston John, or not.

One JOHN, of New Hampsh. m. 15 Jan. 1686, but the fam. name of his w. Martha, is not clear. RICHARD, See Cluff. WILLIAM, Charlestown, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 21 Nov. 1657; Joseph, 18 Sept. 1659; Benjamin, bapt. 30 Mar. 1662, the f. join. the ch. 25 Aug. 1661; Samuel, 10 Dec. 1665; and Nathaniel, 22 Mar. 1668; perhaps liv. at Boston, 1690, when adm. freem.

JOSIAH, Cambridge, as he came in the Elizabeth and Ann 1635, aged 21, may be well thot. br. of James rem. to Hingham 1637, but was a propr. of Salisbury 1640, may have been a resid. but, if so, soon rem. was freem. 7 Oct. 1640, and no more is kn. but that at Boston, by w.

No more is heard of him, yet in the coll. catal. 1698, every one of his class, exc. hims. is mark with *as d. One of his name was of Bristol, Feb. 1689. THOMAS, Lynn, a man of high esteem, b. 1608 at Newbury, in Co. Bucks, was bred at Oxford, but could not take his degr. being driv. away by the plague, at his native town stud. under famous Dr. Twisse, and first preach. in Lincolnsh. unless Mather be wrong. This brot. him acquaint. with Whiting of Boston; and both, by the intolerance of the High ch. party, were forc. to leave their places. In his wonted looseness the author of the Magn. makes him come in the same ship with Davenport, and says that his parents came after to our shore. Of them we never hear a word; and if we may not infer from silence of Winthrop wh. notes that ano. min. wh. was passeng. in the Hector with D. arr. 26 June 1637, was not C. or the Gov. would have nam. him, yet the New Haven tradit. as if the brother of their Gov. Eaton were that min. bears high probabil. C. was adm. freem. 2 May 1638, tho. the prefix of respect is want. in the rec. Unm. on his arr.

Magn. III. 166. Lewis, Hist. of Lynn, 140-3, and the dilig. of Kimball, Eccl. Hist. Ipswich, 19-21, leave us ign. of many details that should be desir. of so famous a divine. THOMAS, Ipswich, s. of the preced. tak. by the Ind. in Philip's war, as in Hubbard may be read; [[vol. 1, p. 415]] and slight acco. of his redempt. may be gather. from the Magn. and most abundant from the narrat. by the f. in Geneal.

JOSIAH, Boston, clothier, call. junr. 1666, was, perhaps, s. of the preced.

COBLEICH, JOHN, Swanzey, by w. Mary had John, b. 5 Jan. 1673. This name, if not an impossib. one, must be very rare. In his large acco. of the early settlem. at S. Baylies has not giv. it. Perhaps the Ind. war exting. within three yrs. our means of verificat. or amendm. But at Hardwick was a Cobleight a. 100 yrs. ago.
